Cooper will either look a genius for those changes or a fool.

Not sure why Russell is dropped, but there you go. Surprised Bugiel isn't recalled either. One or two names who seem to have struggled last couple of games but still in there and probably will come what may. Glad KMB is given a chance but does he have the fitness to last 90?

I'll be happy if we win.

Looking at other games... Port Vale have a winnable match. I fancy Chesterfield to lose again.

Bound to happen, I was going to go tonight but I couldn't leave work in time. It's definitely going to be game of the season now. Just glad I hadn't bought my ticket in advance.

I notice on Twitter that our fans aren't even in the away end, but in a corner.

Completely agree with this. Could understand if this game was on a Saturday and MC had a week to work the changes but this smacks of desperation even suicidal.

Really hope I'm wrong and we come away with at least a point.

Following from Chelmsford tonight - quite nice here.

It was actually up and running right from when I logged in twenty minutes before kick-off. Good going.

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.
