Probably still gutted your lot couldn't beat us on Saturday eh?


Yes, I had really hoped we would beat Cheltenham. But it didn't happen.

Why would I be pleased that a National League squad player will soon be available for a League Two club? You call that uneducated, I call that an honest assessment. Makes me wonder what your education is beyond colonoscopy.

I don't understand why Traore is getting so much love, his form has dropped recently and constantly gives the ball away... This may be because we're relying on him too much. I think Charlie will be a perfect fit next to Osborne and Traore. I have he proves people wrong. I know I've moaned about him in the past but he's a young lad who clearly cares.

One thing that I do really enjoy to watch KMBs ball control, its like the things glued to his feet sometimes. I know on occasions its lost but he puts fear and uncertainty into any defender as its so clear how confident he is on the ball.

Drissa's fitness remains a bit of a mystery and there is no doubt that against Cheltenham he didn't look fully fit. But during his time with us, he has put in some of the best performances I have seen from an FGR midfielder and he has a lot to offer us still.

I think when he has been playing as a holding midfielder, the '1' in a 4-1-3-2 or similar, he has had to work his backside off and perhaps tires as a result? I don't know. I think alongside Ossie now, they both look the part as a midfield duo and by having an athlete like Ossie sharing the work a little more, I think we will see Drissa be very influential.

I think to say that he 'constantly' gives the ball away is unfair, he did make a couple of errors against Cheltenham, but I think tiredness and lack of full fitness played a part. I do accept though that when we are under the cosh against a big, physical team like Cheltenham or Lincoln, he does look less effective and can be out-muscled or pressured into a mistake. But players like him who frequently receive the ball in midfield where it is tight and they are under instant pressure are going to lose the ball sometimes.

My goodness I've just clicked onto the Robin's Nest forum and read that the Cheltenham chairman was upset when teams met at TNL because DV refused to shake his hand in the boardroom.

http://www.gloucestershirelive.co.uk/sp ... rby-901805

He wrote up complaint in Cheltenham's magazine and their forum are making hay because of it.

I don't know the ins or outs of report and will therefore not offer an opinion unlike those Cheltenham forum scribes who are apparently in the know.

Who cares? Dale never welcomes me either and I support his club. Big fuss over nothing.

Sounds to me like someone is trying to divert attention from the problems at CTFC.

Hi
Is Cheltenham one of the clubs which won't allow Dale in the boardroom without a collar and tie?

What problems are they? I think you are confusing them with Evesham City.

Unfortunately he is typical of many Cheltenham supporters.

Arrogant, narrow minded insulting and with a view of their club that is far greater than the club itself.

We are a small club, but we know we are, Cheltenham are very similar in size to us now, but they think they are the Man United of Gloucestershire.

Cannot stand Cheltenham, horrible club.

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.
