All about our First Team

72 points.

Postby FootieMan » Fri Dec 28, 2018 6:19 pm

Using my vast experience (cough) and that half our fixtures have been played 23 (39 points) my overall view of the second half will be harder and my conservative opinion is to gain 33 points making a total of 72 points.

Based on recent years that may well leave the club agonisingly one place short of the Play Offs.

Being sensible and applying your knowledge what is your thoughts of our points total?

Hopefully give fans something constructive to post about.

Looking forward to tomorrow.

you are probably correct ,so with your 'vast experience' , would you care to briefly be a bit more specific as to why you think the second half of season will be harder ?


Hopefully give fans something constructive to post about.

No it won't. We will be agonisingly short and then make last ditch jump to make 3rd automatic. :ugeek:

PS. 88 points!

No reason the club can't have a better second half like last season. Improving the squad in the transfer window is the key.

The team have impressed more as the season has gone on. Replacing draws has paid dividends, despite a few losses.

The harder bit might be playing Mansfield twice who look a good bet to win the league. Also we play all of the 6 teams above us at home and currently our home form is so much worse than away. But I think we can improve, my prediction is 4th 82 points

Timely post Footieman, hope it focuses minds on what happens on the pitch.

Using my experience of watching all but a couple of this seasons games, my opinion is that we have a very capable squad who play consistently well.

With more firepower arriving in the January window, I believe we will win more games and remain in the play off positions for almost all the remainder of the season. We will be on the verge of 'automatics', but not quite succeed in being there at the end of the season. But I love the play offs and we could end up playing Bury!

So 44 more points, 83 in total. 4th.

Relevant to look at predictions for our position at the end of the season. Well done to those who predicted 8th and above

3rd (7 lost) stewjacksam
4th (10 lost) Glen
5th ( 8 lost) Fartvs
6th (15 lost) It is now
7th (11 lost) New Forest Rover
7th (12 lost) smertens
8th (10 lost) greeners junior
8th (12 lost) candy
8th (15 lost) Old Tom Cat
9th (18 lost) Redunited
10th (15 lost) Kentstripe
12th (17 lost) Pitchfork, (16 lost) John Whiffen, (18 lost) Michael
13 (16 lost) Linfield
16th Redrobin
17th (21 lost ) Tommo
18th (20 lost) Silver Surfer
18th (22 lost) Voodooblesman

My gut feeling is that we'll improve. The squad has gelled.

Will those around us improve, strengthen more or fall away?

Injuries or rather staying injury free will play a major part.

Acquisitions will improve rather than distract.

Overall I'd say FM's points tally estimate is on the low side.

Tomorrow will be a tough game. Chelt's are improving, we need to stay on top of our game and not get pressed like last time. All 11 players will need to be 110%

Looking forward to it.

Many thanks for that quote Pitchfork but once again anything remotely sensible has been superseded by constant drivel by other threads and posts, so they take centre stage. This constant bickering has meant many have stopped using the forum.

Someone said does the IGNORE button still exist, well after I post this I am hitting the button on the WHOLE of the FORUM.

Since the Club was elevated to League Two the quality of threads and many individual posts leave me cold. Over the 20'years I worked for FGR of course we had a clash or two and most clubs do but it has reached a stage now where quite frankly it is boring and unproductive. I can chat better with other club supporters than many on here!

Sorry to sound so sanctimonious but it's how I truly see it at this time and don't see 2019 being any better, even if some make it a New Years resolution to chamber their attitude. Many don't help themselves and that includes both sides of the fence. The majority of threads seem to be hijacked for personal vendettas and the initial subject matter of the thread is no longer valid and therefore irrelevant to anyone who would like to genuinely contribute.

Perhaps it is time for the Club to consider closing this forum and so allowing fans to debate elsewhere than here? The Club could open up a sub menu on the official website for Q & A between fans and the club. We used to have one before and it worked very well IMHO.

Best wishes and catch a few of you at games, as and when. It is good to talk in a sensible and constructive manner.

This forum is far more respectful and moderate than one or two others that I have visited. Removing it totally would punish the vast majority who are capable of reasoned debate, who don't enter into the drama caused by a minority or single out members of the club or supporters for directed insults. Far better that the forum continues, rather than drive the users elsewhere, as when used for its intented purpose it is quite good most of the time.

I agree with foggy. I have get lots from this forum. Just look at the amazing statistics, great photos, and news updates about the Cheltenham match.

Why should the club close the forum, it's one of the best around and contains far less bickering or trolling then most others. Recently some people have been upset about certain events and have been vocal about it which surely they have every right to do, or is free speech not allowed anymore?

Some of us rely on this forum to keep in touch with others and keep in touch with what's happening at the club. Even more so if we're some distance away.

So the suggestion of closing it down is the worst idea I've ever heard.

Would it help if moderators simply removed any posts which drifted off thread? Would this be perceived by some as excessive censorship?

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.
