Highlights are now in all the usual places - YouTube, Facebook and hopefully the match report by the time I finish typing this.

Cheers. I watched the interview on FB earlier so it'll be good to see the highlights.

Giraffe you dissapoint me this love in with Cheltenham and loathing of FGR fans is criminal.


You can't label everyone the same. Some of us oldies have more historical context.
Your hands-down winner.

I remember playing them the first time round I was 11 even then it wasn't rite. Maybe it's the fact Gloucester City have disappeared that Cheltenham crave a rival. I was looking through twitter a grown man of 50 odd putting **** forest green on his fridge with magnets sums it up for me

Those Cheltenham fans were weird. Not the main lot, just the little kids and that one older guy who came running over. Was that you kgiii?


I guess you can't read. Already said I wasn't there.


I read it, just thought it was probably a perverse manipulation of truth, like the majority what you write on here.

Reading back through your comments you don't support this team. Whilst in my opinion there are few good observations, the way you write and talk to people is consistently disrespectful and totally weird.

It is obvious from your posts there is nothing you support about this club, In fact you actively and purposefully make things worse for everyone under the disguise of being the only one telling the truth.

So which team do you support?

The round of 32 pairings are determined by means of a draw whereby the winner of a group will be drawn at home and will play a runner up of a group from the same region (but not from the same group). If we draw with Swansea or only lose by one goal we will win the group.

Excellent news, bring it on! Is the Swansea game home or away?

EDIT I looked it up, at home on Tuesday the 31/10 at 7:45

The argument has been split out and locked.

May I suggest that you take it to a private conversation, or away from the forum.

Couldn't make it yesterday but we sounded good, maybe a bit lucky against Cheltenham reserves but hopefully we'll become more confident. I hate to say it but I think doidge needs a rest his confidence is shot so id start with omar and James on Saturday. Sort of weirdly looking forward to it!

In the first half we looked good, loved the way they all linked up going forwards lots of risk taking and playing with more width. I can see now that no matter how well your playing, mistakes normally lead to goals in this league.
Fair play to the team for keeping going through the drought, and the fans too. It was good to feel united and celebrate together at the end. Looking forward to more games and goals.

Are we allowed to post youtube highlights? or does that infringe a rule?

PM, LG3 - I believe many moons ago you both stood on the 'new' terrace at the old ground together. By that point LG3 was well seasoned. Even had a lady from Tamworth put a hex on him!

My favourites were 'does your Dr know you're here' and 'Neil Graysonio, he has gone boldio...

It's only football, we all just spend our lives' hoping it was a bit better and brought us more joy. We all see a slightly different picture.

Back to the thread. Glad we won. Good work everyone.

Thanks NH. Good to see the context you offer. It's also interesting how PM and I can have a lively discussion and not blow it out of proportion. It's football.
Your hands-down winner.

I feel so much better now I know that all Forest Green Fans all love each other really. Op :ugeek:

I'm down the Social Network after footy and just watched the second half of tranmere v Orient with 3 Birkies, singing the old favourite "we're on our way" had a long chat about the football forum whatever that is and how everybody hates FGR and waiting for the money to run out. Their view was good luck to yer, we were well beaten in May. The pies at forest Green they were great ignore those other tw ats what your chairman is doing is great.

Fair Play.

Just saw post match interview. Coops had a dig at Drissa for the first goal. Why does he feel the need to blame all the time? If anyone was to blame it was Wishhart for giving the ball straight back to him.

The team is a collective. A manager that feels the need to blame individuals is very week... But that's just my opinion!

Anyway, good to get a win. Fingers crossed we can bring some positivity and self believe into a league match.

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.
