Men and boys

I wondered where people thought we were with the thought after Newport that we needed ever bigger units to play more direct style of football.

The received wisdom being that you need that to get on in league two. Probably balancing act required?

Yes agreed ..At the Newport game I was thinking: .just one more big bustling bullying physical guy up front and at the back too maybe might work at this level..

It did before didn't it.But would it disrupt/fit our current not quite Barca stylee?

Jon Parkin meets Omar Bogle meets Diego Costa meets 'Matt Thingy from the Imps (!) meets Lukaku ?

Remember the Newport fan who posted on here recently ... re most teams in theis Div having a bully guy or two..
...used to think that - whenever we played v giants.

I wasn't there so did Cov bully us......we can crumble when teams do..

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.
