I could walk to this match quite easily but Cartoon Network is far more inviting.

Cheltenham have made eight changes from Saturday. Makes me laugh given how OTC was saying that Gary Johnson has a pathological obsession with beating FGR and would field a strong team.
Your hands-down winner.

If we don't win tonight on that basis heaven help. FGR 100/30 to win. Got to be worth a bet?

Me too. Get them used to working together.

He implied he wasn't going to play first selections.
Guess he was just trying to fool them! :D

Always knew you were really just a part time Cheltenham supporter.

You think 3.3 to 1 is good odds?
if it had been 33 to 1 I might have had a punt.

I think the line ups made this a must win game.

Interesting to see how many fans from both side have turned up.

Come on you rovers, let's get the win and some confidence ahead of Saturday.

Not listening to FGR commentary tonight (Bucks FA Cup replay) but will post at the weekend how Saturdays first use & negative experience of the Green Devils Live service turned into a positive experience. Applause to the club for that. :D

Against a team resting 8 first teamers I'd say yes.

I am not able to hear the commentary as the button on the main screen is not working for me. Does anybody have another link please?

.Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success.
.Goals are not only absolutely necesary to motivate us. They are essential to really keep us and dreams alive.

If we can't beat Cheltenham reserves what hope will we have? Nothing short of a comfortable victory is good enough

Have you paid for tonight's commentary? If so, it should be working. Mine is.

Come on guys! It's only one goal!
We could've scored 3 in the first half.

We can still win this.

Could. Should have. Almost. Nearly. Close. The eternal words of the loser.

Not that I care about this competition in the slightest. Win or lose.

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.
