I can't speak for anyone else-but i suspect most do knw and realise that .

seems to me that main thrust of debate is how good is/was he (i thought very good ) and why he did not get more game time.

as you say though KS -managed to get promoted without him -so Mr C got it right again .

-a slight aside-whilst most clubs see their ex players progress higher-i'm not to sure there are too many who have seen Norwood /Moore/Pinnock/Brown/Doidge all go to perceived 'big clubs 'in the last 3 years
have i missed anyone ?

(coming seasons 'next big thing ' Mondal imo )

Why are we discussing Aaron under ex-players? Has he gone already?

Interesting piece on Jamie Day (now Bangladesh manager) in this month's Four Four Two magazine. Didn't mention his time at FGR though.

An unfortunate pre-season injury for Reuben Reid means he requires minor knee surgery and so will be missing for a while at the start of the season at Cheltenham Town.
I wish him well.

Poor Reuben. As last year, injuries mar his progress and fitness. Hope you mend quickly Reuben

Touché monsieur Charlie!

'Reject' was a description I used, tongue in cheek over Cheltenham's acquisition of Reuben & Tav. Never meant as a personal slur, it is however accurate. Reuben was transfer listed, Tav loaned out until his contract expired.

As many have said. Reuben is a good guy - personable and articulate. So too Tav (much beloved of NFR). But both were rejected by FGR.

I do not wish either to prosper against Rovers when we play them, but in all other fixtures I wish them well, as with many of our old players

Aww that’s tough on anyone just joining and settling into a new club and it’s particularly tough when approaching the twilight of your career and precious time is running out. I really hope Rueben makes a quick recovery and gets some goals this season.
