A brilliant win and a huge well done to the team and management and of course the noisy contingent of FGR fans.
This time last week many of us were calling for Cooper to go. I thought Cooper was part of the problem and we had little chance of recovering under his leadership. Well, a week is a long time in football and hopefully Cooper will be the man to help the club turn the corner.
The only thing that matters is results so our opinions about his tactics and man management skills count for nothing if the points keep coming in.
It’s difficult to know how dangerous Stevenage were as Bob describes every attack as if they’re about to score. The club owes Bob and the listeners an easy win.
However players seemed to be giving the ball away cheaply and misplacing their passes. We must stop these bad habits. We were lucky Coventry and Stevenage failed to take advantage.
It’s still early days into the hoped for recovery and next Saturday has taken on even greater importance, can’t wait.

It's good news week.
Cooper's dropped a bomb somewhere, lessening the atmosphere
and lightening the sky.

It's good news week
Cooper's found a way to give he stagnant dead a will to live
Go on and never die

Have you heard the news
What did it say?
Who's won that race?
What's the weather like today?

It's good news week
We won that race. Doidge made it three points from a likely one
and made it apple pie

It's good news week ........

Sadly couldn't be there today, but looking at current form Newport county seems to be a one off, 7 points the last 4 games against 4 teams in the top 8 bloody wonderful set of points! So pleased for doidge today to get that monkey off his back! That goal will do wonders for him!! Actually really looking forward to Saturday now!! Get in rovers!!! :D :D :D


Our fans sounded awesome today as well, couldn't hear stevenage could only hear fgr!

Great to hear MC giving KMB a genuine compliment. Hopefully the nonsense has been resolved and we can push away from the relegation zone.

Consecutive away wins in the same week is impressive for any team, for one in the relegation zone after a 4-0 home defeat is quite incredible. Yes we rode our luck at times in both games, but this only balances out the Notts County equaliser and the Accrington defeat. Make no mistake, we are now performing well.

Again, an all round team effort with the second half showing Rovers well on top. Two quality goals! The first an exquisite free kick from Reece Brown, the second a 15+ passing sequence ending with an inch perfect Keano cross onto Christian Doidge's head.

I would pick out Osbourne,Iacovitti, Traore and Brown for the '8's but there is no denying Marsh-Brown is the talisman that seems to make the difference.

We're on our way, but there is a long way to go.

Great result and gritty performance again. Congratulations to all. Surely the only way now is up. Extra beer tonight.

We've seen us in recent years come out the traps like a greyhound, only for it to go pear shaped later. I'd much sooner we got the cra*p out of the way early (including behind the scenes relationships, unsettled players, as well as poor performances). We seem to have done this, and are now moving on.

The hare and the tortoise.

My first away game and it was brilliant.

Don't ever say we don't fight or that the players aren't performing for MC.

They definitely do...........and they definitely are.

Fantastic performance from everyone and our fans were loud and supportive.

A wonderful result and the best feeling ever.

:D so glad I was wrong with my prediction. How can we look so poor against Newport one week and then force Stevenage to play like that the next?

Much more physical, hundreds of offsides, brown holding his own, keano back in the team, an excellent save and doidges smiles after getting his goal.

Fantastic day out.

I'm obviously very pleased with the result today but just as sure as 2 defeats don't condemn a season 2 wins does not make one. I still feel there's debatably a lot that the club has got wrong/could do better. wether that's how they set out fan expectations at the start of the season, the player recruitment, coopers relationship with fans etc there is one thing that can't be argued and that is that this team is up for a fight which is the bare minimum we will need. Keep it going lads!
