It will be sorted!


Bob I tweeted BBC Radio Glos just after kick-off and at H/T, so they were aware that we were listening to BBC Radio Cambridge.

I like the look of Aitchison, very sharp and direct, good shot on him too.

I actually thought it was a decent game, both sides moved the ball well into attacking areas, Cambridge definitely had more chances but we did look dangerous, if only the final ball had been better we could have got in a lot more often then we did, we had the runners. We're close to clicking I think, but it's great that while we're a work in progress we're still picking up results and keeping pace near the top.

All the best to the Essex based fan, didn't see what happened but sounds like the expert response from the Cambridge staff and the swiftly arriving paramedics was potentially life saving. Puts the football into perspective.

Appreciate that goals win games but so too does saving goals so well done to Lewis for the excellent spot kick save and same to Joe for an amazing headed clearance off the line !

This season is really building. I am really looking forward to a nice spring and promotion.

crikey E-E -are you feeling well ?

You do realise that your favourite Mark Cooper is still the manager -and that is unlikely to change

Following the Walsall game I expressed how I felt we had a new found resilience. Coops has clearly signed players who can dig in, even if we are goal shy and playing dangerous passes around our own box.

I cannot remember a previous occasion when the goalkeeper took a throw-in! :o
The Cambridge goalkeeper managed it after they went 1-0 down and the game had minutes left to play.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
