A great headed goal too, from a Joe Cole cross.

It's amazing how many players, such as Matty Taylor and James Norwood, are claimed to have the potential to follow in Vardy's footsteps.

Vardy has been a great role model that many would wish to emulate, but his achievement stems from a rare talent, dedication and focus.

I enjoyed watching both for FGR and wish them well where ever their careers take them.

Of the two, I think Taylor has the better chance to play at a higher level. He has all the basics and plays like a shorter version of John Parkin. If his coaches can achieve more composure in front of goal, he could become a 25 goals per season player

Norwood has the more exotic talent, but a coach has to deal with what is going on in his complicated brain. He thinks he's a front man, everyone else thinks he's a winger. If he allies with a really good coach then listens and acts on his advice, he could surprise us all. Not at Tranmere under Brabin though?

As for the article, 9 league goals is hardly startling as a striker - AOC, JP, Kurtiss & KMB are all on about that total and 3 of them have not been starting that regularly.

My head tells me that KMB has the same sort of mercurial talent as James Norwood, but after taking half a season to bed in I fancy that he'll end the season with the better goals total. Hope so, as if I am right, he might be the key to automatic promotion

I agree - I would bet on Taylor before Nors making it to the top but I think Guthrie may have the best chance

I still think Styche is decent striker at this level and worth a punt.

You obviously didn't see him when he played for Kidderminster against us. He wouldn't even get on the bench at FGR nowadays.

I imagine the poor team around him had a major influence on his performance. With players like Frear and KMB supplying the ammunition and a bit of confidence, I'm sure he could still do a decent job for us.

Darren Jones gave away a penalty at the end if the game last night as Newport County lost 1-0.

Watching MK Dons play Chelsea, they had a player called Danny Powell come on as sub. Didn't he play for us?

It is the same player. I believe we took him on loan from MK Dons. Good player from the limited time with us.

Danny Ireland was good. Gone back to Oz to play, I believe.

Fowler, Mangan and Stokes have already scored today, for their respective teams, and we are still in the first half!

Good to see Kevin Phillips coming out to speak on BT sport after Kiddy won. Is it the angle of the camera, I fancy hes gained a few pounds since with us

4.32, just before Halifax V FGR

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.
