This thread is not about baiting the mods, it's fans talking about how to improve the club :)

We understand that. All we ask is that posts are made within the forum rules.

We are fans and we hurt too.

I was thinking exactly the same thing. Perhaps they agree with us now; surely most sane people would!

Not true. Other mods are fans and don't appreciate "lets' bait the mods" as a game. We do this because we love the club and want the best for it.

We helped set the rules to try to ensure there would be a fair forum, and that is what we are here for. Most of us are not Ecotricity employees, but fans that care about this club. We have a section where contentious threads can be moved to, out of the public eye, to be considered by more than one mod. We chat about descisions.

As for this thread, the title is imflamatory and directly refers to an employee. There are other ways of expressing the sentiment. Please consider them. At some time this thread may be moved away from public eyes, but in the meantime, however angry or upset or concerend you are, players and managers are real people, however flawed you might think they are.

As for the reference to LM, the Referee account was set up to stop personal attacks related to moderation.

Thank you.

Referee.


I guess the emoji was wasted on you. It's a wink. Widely acknowledged around the world.

Anyhow, Cooper out!

Guess what you like.

Perhaps the moderation team would benefit from you joining it with your wisdom, intellect, insight and grandstanding naughtiness.
Why not PM us asking if you can join. ;) < emoji

When cooper had gone at half time you could literally sense a weight had been lifted, the fams don't actually blame the players at all and the club seemed as one. I find it hard to support a team led by a man who is so cold to the fans and so quick to throw his players under the bus. I actually had my issues with him last year but as he got us up was willing to give a chance but I think he should have gone a good while ago.

When you're in a fight like we are you need someone to galvanise the club not a petulant brat.

I feel sorry for Charlie although it was idiotic today, it isn't a surprise he finally snapped, he's not good enough at the moment and that's not to say he won't be, but his dads constant preferential treatment of him has done him more harm than good.

We used to be the friendly club on the hill!!!

With a manager behaving like this the way he does this statement is no longer worthy of the club..

Very sad to see the club like this becasue of one man.

I would rather have another 4 litres of Moviprep and another colonoscopy than join the moderating team.

Your choice, but we are happy to know that you'd rather produce a brown pencil and then ride the black lizard than join us.

Good luck with your proceedure.

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.
