I wondered why John Mills who used to play for Didcot didn't end up playing a lot higher, his goalscoring record was amazing, last time I heard of him he was at Hereford.

He featured on tele last Saturday.
The luck was with the hosts once again just before the break when Ash Eastham twice cleared John Mills' close-range efforts off the line after Billy Murphy's free-kick had caused chaos in the box.

Hate to pour cold water on all of this but wasn’t a certain Shamir Mullins supposed to be a prolific scorer?

a lot made of Grubbs goalscoring record-fine and good-but for me thats a bonus.

fundamentally he is a central midfield player-where FGR are short of numbers,and everyone has been crying out for reinforcements .

as long as he can do the midfield job-perfecto-a few goals-better still-and i think he is a bit of a free kick specialist which may help'but main job-is do the midfield thing.
I think he is 6 foot-so no giant-but hopefully-no lightweight either,and bring a bit more physical presence. '
help create some chances for Doidge-and score non himself-thats fine by me.

just do the creative midfield bit first please

What we need is a player with the vision and skill of Drissa, but who can score the odd goal and last for ninety minutes or more without the need to be substituted...if Grubb is that sort of player then we will have done very well indeed to sign him.

Bristol Rovers signed a lad from Weston last season and he's in their side now.

I would have thought he was direct competition with Bugiel rather than Traore

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.
