Sounds like we actually had a go tonight, wasn't that the complaint after the last 2 away games? We go again

I actually think privately Dale is fuming with Cooper, but he did give him a 5 year contract!!!


If he’s fuming with him, why would he back him as much as he has, don’t believe that at all.

If Doidge and Stevens are sold, that would be absolutely criminal!!!!!!!

We would be absolutely certain to go down then.

Dale give the impression he doesn’t care, which is more frustrating considering he wanted promotion so bad, seems they’re both colluding to get us relegated!!!

Not sure they want us down , just know they ain’t got a clue, whole club, fans and players excluded, haven’t got a clue how to run a football club, it’s not just about throwing money at it, it’s not about getting publicity, it’s about having people who actually understand the game, pretty simple really.

He just does that, remember Hockaday??

Of course he does not want us to get relegated!! Why would he spend so much to come up.

Maybe the excuse is that the supermoon rose over the ground at half time and affected the team adversely. (Think I've lost it now).
Sadly more or less resigning myself to a very disappointing and embarassing relegation season after all the hard work, and that day last May. Just don't see how this is happening.

I said previously and will repeat it again, the matches the club MUST target to win are those against the teams in the bottom 8 of the division. Take points off those in and around you and you will be safe. Those games are still to come and mostly at home.

I like many who have followed the club over the years have been there before. Continually slagging off the players and management will just give you high blood pressure. Walk away from your computer for a day and save yourself all the hassle. Sensible analysis is more therapeutic even if you do not realise it at the time.

Comments without basis are no use either. I don’t know if it is true MC did not go in the dressing room at half time. If it was true then why? There might be a valid reason only he knows. Could it be that he was being consulted about a last minute bid for Doidge. Was Dodige brought off because a deal was reached and to protect the high value bid he was substituted.

We can all guess but the club will not save itself if we are not together. What will be.....will be. As fans we have no control over these things. Believe me.........


Well said.

Great young player!!!

Good luck to him, I would jump at the chance of getting away from Cooper if I was a player.

Why do they like Cooper so much???

Awful manager, arrogant and aloof!!

What hold does he have over these people??

If you’d like to become a mod, please PM Referee. If not, then please re-read the forum rules. We hurt when we lose too.

Because they are told to tow the party line, they are not allowed to have an opinion. If Dale says jump they ask how high.....while people who want to express a different opinion are shot down

Wise words if I may so, FootieMan.
So I must desist from further comment, and will revisit my thoughts after a scotch and a good night's sleep.

One thing this evening about FGR, however, is very different for me, and dursleydog made the point earlier in this thread.

Summat just don't feel right these days, eh? Init?

Yes we’ll said - we only know a smidgen of what is going on and the only control we have is to give or withdraw our support of the club. I vote for support despite not getting a point from one of the divisions best clubs away from home tonight.

I hope Doidge doesn’t leave yet tho.
