Would disagree on Cooper's success though. I would say Frank Gregan is FGR's most successful manager by a long way.


Good call. Frank's achievement in getting a village club into the conference was incredible.

Interesting that the man himself thinks very highly of Cooper. https://mobile.twitter.com/Greegers/sta ... 4145566722

I wasn't one of those on here calling for us to bring in another keeper (especially on loan!)

I was questioning here recently the reasons why Lewis Thomas had been replaced because I couldn't remember him making too many major mistakes:


viewtopic.php?f=2&t=109222


So he was at fault for the Scunthorpe goals but is that a good enough reason to demote him to 3rd choice so soon after a player of the month nomination. Maybe he was just having an off-day.

I think it's about time he got another chance to play a few matches. We might even have some clean sheets again!

Ignore my post.

I wrote it before I saw our team line-up!

I know you weren’t NFR, but you’re also not one of those that abuses players either. Having an opinion on team selection is fine, but abusing players who you might not rate isn’t, it’s not their fault they’re picked. As long as they give 100% they deserve support, whoever they are.

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.
