...manager has left the club, Alex Revell will manage the team until the end of the season.

...although it does seem a little confusing as to who was really running the show!

Can't see any way other than down for them, unless there is a near miraculous turn-around in their performance in the next few weeks. And there's no indication of that coming about.

As I'm quite fond of them (having family connections with the town), I'm sorry to say that, not that I'd be rubbing my hands with glee at the two other most plausuble relegation candidates being sent back to the national league either. Oldham or Scunthorpe I'd be much less sentimental about.

I'm not sure what happened at Broadhall Way: they weren't dreadful last season; they have a consistent, if not enormous, support base (as things stand, just about slightly larger than ours, and substantially larger than that of Crawley and probably Macclesfield). Yes, they are in a largely Spurs-supporting town (but maybe benefit less from Spurs fans attending their matches when their first choice team are not at home than, say, Dagenham & Redbridge did, in their league days, from Hammers' supporters turning out to support the smaller local team) ,but well, I suppose 10 years (is it?) in the league for a club of this size isn't dreadful. It's twice what (cheating and Steve Evans-employing) Boston managed, or the kings of the pies, Kidderminster Harriers, or the brave but unsustainable project that was Rushden & Diamonds managed, at least.

Maybe they'll be back, I'm not sure.

I dont think they're doomed, they need to break the spell and go on a good run.

Just like we do...

I too would like Stevenage to stay up since it’s an away game I can get to. Maybe Carlisle and Morecambe could collapse and I can avoid feeling guilty about not getting to them. The thought of Carlisle, Morecambe and Barrow all being in our league next season is not appealing to a Person away supporter like me

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.
