What about 'the chameleons.' Green aren't they normally? But with the capacity to change often and appear invisible in their surroundings.....

Ah yes, the green devils! Forgot to add that one.
Look, it's a bit like a landlord coming into your house, chucking out your furniture and replacing it with theirs and moving everything around and saying 'what are you worried about? If it wasn't for me you wouldn't have a house!'
I appreciate what dales done in terms of the footballing side of things and actually don't mind a lot of the other stuff but i hate to see something I love being used for something that is not for purpose intended and being constantly told I can't have an opinion on it. There's saving a club and then there's dismantling one and building a completely different one in its place.
Yes dale saved us but he could have done that without everything else that's come wit it IF it was just about football, which it clearly isn't and that's what I'm slightly uncomfortable with.

I agree with the list of concessions but in my view they are relatively trivial in relation to the benefits of being sucked up into Ecotricity.

I like most of Dale’s principles and think many are in tune with where the country needs to go. That they are reflected at the club often makes me proud to be a supporter.

But fundamentally I go to watch FGR to be entertained by good quality, emotionally charged football. I have had that under the DV regime to a far greater extent that I believed possible.

The concessions at real but are outweighed by that imo.

But your avatar though?

Yes, my editing has improved the badge dramatically, don't you think?!

I think it stinks and I have tried to portray that with my 'adjustment'....! Quite frankly, skunks have as much to do with FGR as the Lion and Unicorn on the new badge, i.e. nothing...

Would be great to see something similar next week. If that doesn't the team going, nothing will.

Have to agree wiyh ya there Kentstripe

I think it was a thousand or so. Great performance but finished short.

Looking forward to Saturday.

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.
