I have absolutely no problem with KgIII at all he knows that. I've known the bloke 20 odd years he's been watching long before that. My highlight was his dread lock phase ;) There was no argument just opinions.

I am extraordinary grateful to Giraffe for nicking my avatar to masquerade as me with all his anti-FGR bile on the Cheltenham forum. Sadly for him everybody can see through his duplicitous rantings but it has weaned me off reading the Robin’s Nest.
However I made an exception reference the CT Trophy game on Tuesday.

It is amusing to read how two sets of fans view the game. For instance a Robin scanned our forum to write: “they have just won the european champions cup, or at least, that is what it reads like”
My reading of our forum differs in that I think all euphoria is based around a win after seven games.
However the reaction of the Cheltenham supporters at the game when they went ahead was as if THEY had won the European Cup.
Seems shoe is on the other foot.

Another regular robin poster wrote: “They know they only just scraped past a ten man reserve team. The only noses being rubbed would be theirs as the gulf in class between their best eleven and the rest of L2 became more evident.”
Obviously the guy did not buy a programme in which Gary Johnson wrote: “We want to win every game we play in and this evening we will make some changes but still put out a side that we feel can perform, get a result ........”
Heaven help Cheltenham if that is the manager’s opinion of his own team before they were comprehensively outplayed.
I thereafter checked details of their team on their own website and discovered that Johnson actually sent out a strong set of experienced players:
Flatt [4 games, 360 mins], Cranson [10 games, 855 mins], Storer [10 games, 871 mins], Atangana [5 games, 407 mins], Wright [11 games, 520 mins], Boyle [6 games, 459 mins], Sellars [7 games, 290 mins], Bower [1 game, 5 mins], Hinds [6 games, 109 mins], Moore [7 games, 630 mins], Davey [Debut game but professional since 2012 and has represented Scotland U19s]
Subs: Grimes [9 games, 797 mins], Winchester [11 games, 959 mins], Eisa [11 games, 847 mins]
So despite what the self deceiving robin fan (Hi RCS) claims, the Cheltenham team was comparable in experience to that of FGR.
Glory, glory, Forest Green Rovers.

Nicking someone's Avatar does show a lack of respect. Actually KG3, do you still consider yourself an FGR supporter?

Good post OTC the '8 changes made' was misleading. We ran circles around them for most of the game! Like others have said you don't get points for that, but it does show ability.

Their goal was a beauty, but going from their forum i can tell quite a few are worried.

...oh and I'm not obsessed but I have been looking forward to playing local teams this season.

League game or not 1-0 to us, some will think I've OD'ed on the happy pills but I think it will be 2-0 in November.

No, I think that an avatar should be something private, just for the person to use.

Have to admit that I found mine on google, but it represents my current view...however, it is clearly far cleverer to make one of your own, whether that might be to say something about your own character or to make some sort of statement!

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.
