The only push we need is one for Mark Cooper.

Pretty much every home game we have out-sung the away support and there has been a brilliant atmosphere.

The game had a dead atmosphere yesterday from us, as we are sick of watching utter rubbish, it starts to wear you down.

Don't take it the wrong way; I think you have a good thing on the go at your club. However, I'd be tempted to get home and away fans on one terrace, under one roof with a little line of stewards in the middle. It will make the atmosphere fantastic, and make every game feel really special for your fans who have waited so long to get here and might spur your boys on when the going gets tough.

Was that forum talk about reviewing after 15 games or an MC/Other quote?

When the club starts banning those that make noise is it any wonder that the atmosphere is dead?

I MC said he'd look at the table after 15 matches because it's when it has started to settle. Should have looked at it after two matches!

Get rid of zonal marking


I don't think our players are particularly good overall for L2, but I do think they are better than we are seeing and also good enough to stay up. Just about.

I believe, as highlighted above, that much of the problem in securing results is down to chopping and changing both formations and players, which is a recipe for disaster IMHO with so many new signings made who don't yet know how to play together.

Completely agree, but it was the same for almost all of last season, no regular forward pairing , players in & out, varied CBs and defenders. I can only conclude its MCs style. At least he kept one GK in almost (Or all) the way.

Given the end result last season I am not quite as concerned as some, but its totally maddening along the way.

Reading this thread it seems a bit like the weather in England.

Must be depressing back home but fortunately I am in Corfu, where the weather is gorgeous, the food edible and top quality drink flows.

You all have time to join me before Tuesday. It is the end of the summer here for main tourism but those who have made the effort are getting tremendous value for their Euro. Seems you as fans don't think so when it comes to the Pound in your pocket?

Just next to the airport here in Kerkyra is their football stadium where apparently bugger all happens too.

Another round barman!!

Seriously it will change. Surely??

I agree with a lot of what rncfc says. I do wonder if we are big and powerful enough. Our centre backs are on the short side (without Monthe), our midfield has little height (though Osbourne is a good addition) and Mullings is not playing. Bugeil and Doidge are strong for their size but, all over the pitch, we are rarely able to out-muscle.

Of course adding muscle may mean reducing the quality of the football. I wouldn’t welcome that but maybe getting that ‘foothold’ first has to be a priority. Not sure if anything can be done til January anyway.

There’s still time.

What is 'quality' about the football being played at present? Checked the league table of late?

From what I've seen albeit only 3 games so far, we appear to have no aerial presence on set pieces. This might be why we're not seeing regular crossing service to Doige and the likes because there is simply no threat or domination of height. It's like we get a corner and our heads drop!

Wrong system, wrong tactics, wrong personnel to compete at this level sufficiently

Prove me wrong
...Because we know Tranmere will come back but it's WOOLERY AT THE OTHER ENNNNNDDDD......GOAL 3-1 to Forest Green

I always think we look more likely to score from set pieces than open play. League Two is about speed, height and strength. We don't have much of any of these.

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.
