Not surprised by the 4 changes - presumably Evans a straight switch for Dale who is injured. Fitz obviously carrying the can for the Carlisle goal despite his heroics to keep out 3 others !! KMB and Drissa looked very disinterested and Brown was always going to win his place back anyway. Just surprised to see James in ahead of say Stevens ! Certain players missing completely so either already left (end of loans) or in the departure lounge for January !!

Didn't somebody say he'd already gone out on loan somewhere ?

Not happy about today's referee, Forest Green playing in Devon, Referee Brett Huxtable is from Devon. At least he doesn't have to far to go home.

Well according to Bob, playing like he has a point to prove. Sounding like the ref might have seen enough though as there's a fair bit of standing water on the pitch. Just had a long look while we had a corner and they reckon might call it off at the half.

If the match does continue, lets hope the improved performace leads to a positive result, and isn't to no avail again.

You know what's going to happen. We'll go 3-0 up and Exeter will appeal to the ref to stop the game

Hi
Obviously not a televised match.
How does the pitch compare with that Southport evening match when the referee needed a boat with an outboard motor.
That one wasn't abandoned

Get the covers on, take tea early and get some more overs in in the evening session.

Oh well I can have my cup of Bovril now, I had got a superstition that my H/T one wasn't working any more and had stopped about 10 matches ago.

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.
