Looking forward to The Dans, Isaiah & co having a go at kids their age tomorrow!
.

is there a slight inconsistency here ?
I get all the theoretical stuff about good experience for the academy guys-and they will learn -i understand that - albeit in the face of a 6-0 drubbing i am not certain about how much you learn and whether it can actually be de motivational .

General consensus is that what probably has settled into a first pick 11 need a rest before the all important league game on saturday -again-i don't agree wholeheartedly but get the theory of that .

Yet here we are with a very important cup game on thursday night ( a case could be made that its more important than both last night and next saturday ) ,yet probably 3 key players in the team for thursday are played in a really tough match just 48 hours beforehand, whilst 'first team players-who will be fitter and stronger than 16 year olds are apparently in need of a rest .
how does that work then ?
where is the consistency in that ?

with the academy side being in such an important game on thursday-shouldn't they have been the one's to have been 'rested' as opposed to being asked to play 2 games in 48 hours ?
there again-maybe not after all.

I don't think there are too many fixtures,(needless to say-the club do not publish fixtures much in advance and certainly not league tables if there is such a beast ) but as well as the academy league-is it not the case that fgr are also in the Central league (effectively and theoretically a reserve league ) to bridge the gap between 1st team and academy and a place for experienced fringe//'need minutes in legs ' /injury recovering players ?

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.
