All good banter and why shouldn't Pipey brag up his own team. He remains a FGR favourite whatever club he plays for except for those 90 minutes he is on pitch lining up against FGR.

Does he? That's a strong claim ... someone who always gave 100%, yes, but a favourite?

Yes he did always give his all, but was often found out for pace. Not one of my favourites, always a bit of a liability. But fair play where it’s due, has resurrected his career amazingly well, seems quicker than he did 4 yrs ago.

we need to attack Pipe with every opportunity tonight, surprised Wishart wasn't starting, ideal opportunity for him.

At end of game Pipey came over to the FGR away supporters and gave us all a round of applause.
Very nice fella and my admiration for him as a person has gone up even higher than before.

Cafu he might not be, but he always gives 100% for his employer which you have to respect

DP did all right even under pressure from Whizz in the second half. Good player and great reactions and pace over short distance.

Nice gesture after to come over.

I must confess, when Pipey was released by FGR back at the end of the 2015/16 season I would NOT have predicted that he would be playing League 2 football almost two years later. Certainly when he was asked to play in central midfield back then, although the passion was still clearly there it certainly didn't look like the legs were. He was a likable, buccaneering sort of character and I admired his commitment and aggression at Right Back, but for me, he lacked the all round game of Dale Bennett.

Good on him. You are a long time retired and it seems he is working hard to prolong his career as far as possible. And a nice touch to come over and wave to the FGR fans last night.

He was definitely one of my favourites, he wasn't the best footballer but he made up for it in his commitment and effort.

Agree that i was surprised that he got back into a League 2 team as his legs did look like they were gone towards the end, however, he gave 100% every time and conducted himself brilliantly on and off the pitch, calming down situations, getting the team motivated, as a sub he would be running up and down the touchline willing the team on and in interviews he always said the correct thing even when AP hadn't picked him for a while and he clearly wasn't happy about it.Top man.
I'd rather be a free man in my grave, than living as a puppet or a slave.

I agree entirely with your comments above ref. David Pipe except for the remarks about his legs looking as if they had gone. His arms are bigger than my legs and his legs look larger than my waist, Not gone just getting bigger.

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.
