I agree wholeheartedly. Unfortunately there are some who feel unable or unwilling to support certain players. It’s a shame.


I support all our players when I am at the ground!!!

Does not stop me writing some criticism about a poor player on here though, that's what forums are for!!

Not sure some of the happy clappers understand this!!!



Woops sos, didn't mean to stir things up. Just meant that the 90 mins of support counts. No fingers were being pointed.

Fair enough.

I actually agree with you that full support at the ground is what is needed, and what I and many others intend to do.

I know I just wrote it badly mate. What I could have said that against port vale the crowd really expressed themselves and really spurred the players on, some times we have quiet patches and the energy really drops, that's when they need us! Let's keep it up!

Definitely mate, we all want what is best for this great club, I agree the atmosphere second half against Vale was superb from us and definitely did seem to have the desired effect.

The EFL have shot themselves in the foot and completely devalued their own competition for the sake of a few quid and helping Premier League teams give their hoarded "homegrown" players a bit of match practice. Shame really.

For that reason I had no intention of attending games in it, and hope that it's a Chelsea v Leicester final.

Well done the 71 from FGR who went. I hope the team - weakened for obvious reasons - put in a workmanlike performance to at least satisfy them that the trip was worthwhile.

Anyone know how KMB played? Is he still trying or seeing the writing on the wall? I hope the former since he should be important to us in the run in

Precisely.

ALL that matters this season is staying in League Two. To hell with nonsense competitions like this - notwithstanding the fact that its a shame this competition has been so completely devalued.

I understand the EFL Trophy is not a priority given our parlous league position. What I don’t understand is why Cooper reverted to a failed system of short free kicks and short corners. Give the players the freedom to choose and get the ball in the box.

Hopefully Saturday we’ll be more direct and stop giving the ball away.

Probably down to a lack of height.

On Saturday we'll have the likes of Rawson, Gunning, Doidge and Reid back, plus possibly one of Monthe or Hollis, all of whom are good in the air.

Should help.

Agree with Kentstripe, the only way the EFL will realise is when two under 23 sides get to Wembley to be played in front of about 2,000 people lol

How do you devalue something that has never had any credibility? It's one of those cups nobody seems to care about until they're in the final.

This competition might get more support if they dispensed with the rule about being unable to field players who are "cup tied". Surely we would have put out a much stronger team if this had been the case.

It was only about money - reputed to be £50,000 for yesterdays winners. Nice little earner .....

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.
