Away for Christmas out of the country atm and didn't really get a chance to follow the game, so not going to comment too much, other then it sounds like we were poor which is disappointing. Need to bounce back at Exeter, we've shown we're a match for them twice very recently so no reason we can't go there and get something.

Supported the club throughout several relegation battles in the past, and more then happy to do the same if that's what this season turns out to be. Certainly no need to panic yet though imo. A point gets us out of the bottom 2, so we're hardly cut adrift. Need to improve on recent form though, obviously.

Merry Christmas.

enjoy your christmas KS.

lets hope your optimism for the new year proves correct.

MC obviously recognising the need for serious recruitment-which he has not (publically )admittrd previously .

I still want MC to stay and prove ultimately successful for FGR despite his blatant errors this season.

i feel a bit sorry for him at moment-as 3 difficult matches-nul points probably-he will not be enjoying his christmas much as the man responsible for this situation.

I hope he has a so much better 2018

But yesterday brought a dose of reality. This team will be relegated, and I cannot see any decent player s wanting to join in January that is going to change things. After all the hard work, and the exultation at Wembley, this will be a tragedy


Yes the players have put in some great performances, the have matched Grimsby, Luton & Exeter twice all to no avail, why? I think they are strapped by Cooper's tactics, now, there is a danger of them giving up and frankly who would blame them. Although we do need new players I do think many of the ones we have are good enough or could become good enough to be in a league 2 squad. Bennett, Laird, Triore, Collins, Monthe, KMB, Doidge, Brown, Simpson, Cooper, Wishart, Stephens, Osbourne, Fitzwater & Iacovitti. That's 13 + 2 loanees. We need 20 to be viable.

And more importantly we need a system that plays to the strengths of the players we have not one that imposes restrictions on their skills.

Its looking increasingly evident that Liam Noble's crystal ball was giving out strong signals in August, he could see the potential in Notts County and our struggle,demise and non-progression. I take back all i said about him, and i am now refering to my astrologist chart to the future for our club. How could i have been so wrong - he really is a decent bloke !!!!. ( Not really.......its Christmas Day, and the champagne, cider, wine and port has taken its toll ).

If Nobel were still here and playing with the same commitment and skill as last season we would be in a much better position.

Do they REALLY? Can anyone substantiate this? I don't see it, I have to be honest. We TRY to play football, granted, sometimes it works, but mostly it DOESN'T because in my humble opinion, we do not have the players to 'out football' teams in this league consistently. And it's why we are bottom of the league this Christmas.

It's tight at the bottom and I have not yet given up hope. But we have a 23 game fight on our hands and if we do stay up, I think it is going to be by the skin of our proverbial teeth unless we make some changes.

As a season ticket holder i must say that that was the worst i have seen them play this season , what was the DEF doing Charlie Cooper should not be playing he is not a league 2 player , he cant pass , tackle or even head the ball, as for keeping on passing the ball back to the keeper , i realy dont get it we should be attacking and playing two upfront we will never stay up if we keep playing like today.

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.
