Kevin Nicholson is an interesting possibility. He had it hard at cash strapped Torquay and did his utmost. I believe he is well respected and with money behind him he could do well.

I cannot believe people are seriously suggesting Kevin Nicholson.

Would be a massive unnecessary risk, and highly unlikely to produce any benefit, unless we were preparing to get relegated.

John Sheridan for me. Worked wonders to save Oldham for relegation last year and I reckon he would move us up the table.

Agreed, but that's up to the boss not the staff decision.

He has done a good job of setting Torquay off on the wrong foot as well this season.
Your hands-down winner.

Fair point but this is not real life we are talking about here, rather Planet Football where it seems like completely different standards obtain

Planet football suggests Steve Cotts, with Scott Barts as understudy to learn from. Ay well, it was only a dream !!.

I actually feel sorry for Cooper. He must be hurting. Nobody wants to be under the pressure he is under. For all we know he tried very hard to sign players and what he got was the best he could do. Remember we tried for Woolery but didn't get him. How many others were there? We just don't know.

I do think he has made mistakes though. The constant changing of systems and personnel at the back is mad, especially given how many are also new to the club.

I don't think Cooper is going anywhere.

We know what the alleged problem was. It was because we are too far from major transport links like the M5 and M4. If a few miles is far I have to question how Yeovil have signed anyone. It's just rubbish. Think back to the press day when DV said we were attracting potential new signings.

People also seem to be forgetting that if we're bottom of the heap in January we're going to be an even less inviting proposition.
Your hands-down winner.

Cannot believe anybody actually feels sorry for Cooper!!

Also cannot believe there are people that believe his rubbish about location!! We are actually well situated fir a number of different reasons.

I don't feel sorry for Cooper at all, if he gets sacked, it is completely his fault, not the crowd, not even the players, it is him!!

I know he has changed his role in life now, but John Ward has an excellent record of saving teams in trouble. I think defeat to Altrincham will be curtains for Cooper, but it's been coming, so Vince might have someone in mind already.

Bartlet for caretaker, but a gamble to give him the job full time, we need someone with a track record of turning things around.

John Ward ?. Has been to Rovers and City, and was well liked - who knows what comes out in the wash.

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.
