On a long contract what impetus does any manager have to do a good job, beyond personal pride. If he had dignity he'd walk away.

perhaps i have overdosed on happy pills ,but not feeling too bad with chesterfield and barnet losing.

what will hack me off is the posts on here /interviews where we get the usual ''won the second half rubbish'-

so what-no points.

as above-oddly don't feel too down

He has to go. He’s embarrassing the club on and off the pitch.

Yep. Wondering who he'll blame today. Probably the ref, certainly won't be his or his son's fault!

With us winning the 2nd half 1-0 our record without Charlie in the side is remarkable.

Sat at home after watching Wycombe nearly Chuck it away
2-0 up at half time they took foot off the gas and gave FGR a sniff
A good goal - please explain why Fitzwater wasn’t starting and laird was
The kicking for touch tactic simply doesn’t work - the cheers when brad went route one and we did well was loud and clear
So we lost - badly - Wycombe could and should have been out of sight 4-0 would not have flattered them
Special word about Jordan Stevens - he is a real star not far off being something very special
A word about Charlie cooper - learn from Jordan - silly nasty streak will get you nowhere
We must change tactics and play 442
Wholesale changes required - obviously roll on Saturday when we will see new tactics and a new side??????

Subliminal message or what. Shackles were off 2nd half. Players were allowed to express and they played better and looked happier and had more belief in each other, not being forced to pass side/backwards. Was that a player mutiny we saw 2nd half. This is what we can do when neither Coops about?

Anybody with footballing knowledge know what the players were telling the fans. Shame there is no one on the board with footballing knowledge.

How can Scott Lindsay expect everyone to get onside with MC when he plays his petulant little boy each week? MC is apparently the most important person at the club.

Lindsay whining that we have had bad luck. What a load of deluded tosh.

I viewed M/C as the new Messiah, following his success with our promotion last season. Up until today, I have still been in the pro 'keep him' camp. After 3 banishments to the Stand, it appears to me that if you cannot manage your inner emotions, how can you manage a field of 11 players?

The only chance of staying up is to go with what Cooper has lined up in the transfer window. There just isn’t realistically enough time to get a new manager in with his signings before the window shuts

It’s Cooper or nothing

I would normally agree, but CC is just not good enough to play in League 2. In the time he was on he made one forward pass which was in the general direction of Doidge, but every other pass was backwards or sideways, and several times to a Wycombe player. He lost the ball several times, and it was the frustration that boiled over leading to his petulant stamp. He had the ball, lost it and left his mark on the Wycombe player, No doubts - straight red. MC is pretty stupid to try and argue with the officials about it and fully deserved his sending off as well.

Without CC in the team, and down to 10 men we played so much better. Sorry, but he is a waste of space. Let's hope Middlesborough still want him.

Interesting thought and also that about a player revolt from 20 Years Etc. Well done Lindsey too I say. We were a bit unlucky in the second half and I still think there is enough spirit in the team to keep us up. We have to get a result versus PV though I think.

I thought Brown was a decent MotM choice but KMB, Lee Collins and Stevens all played well. Doidge tried and Monthe got better as the game went on. Wishart had a good second half

Without the Coopers, we put in a spirited second half display. I know we’re thick fans but it seems obvious the more the ball is the opposition box, the more chance of scoring.
The team started playing direct fast football with no fear of Cooper yelling at them from the sideline. It was a revelation for them and us and was nearly an enjoyable game to watch.

The divide between the manager and son and the fans is, I suspect, unbridgeable. The pair show a complete lack of humility and such hubris always leads to an eventual downfall.

I feel sorry for the players working under this regime. All we have to do is suffer watching.

I would be willing to try nothing and just let the players go out and do what they want...like the second half when they played better than just about any 45 minutes I can remember this season.

We are bottom of the league because of Cooper, we saw today, having 'nothing' was better than having 'cooper'.

Clearly CC isn't good enough for League 2.

I wonder if the players are playing with a fear in the back of their minds that they will do something wrong and have to face the wrath of MC. Without MC on the sideline they seemed to play with more commitment.

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.
