We have been poor the last 3 games combination of being tired and not good enough I'd say. 4 away games in 2 weeks isn't great for any team. We were never going win last night we were abysmal Saturday yet scrapped a win at stevenage cant play poorly every game and expect to keep picking points up

We play Bradford on Saturday and it's only going one way. Eoin Doyle is absolutely scoring, his goal record against us is incredible, he's scored more goals than appearances against us. If Van Veen and Gilliead are still injured then we don't stand a chance, we won't even have a shot without them two. With Van Veen potentially injured and Novak suspended, that will pave the way for either Jamie Proctor or George Miller (both ex Bradford) to make their first starts since October and August respectively. They've both shite so I hope neither start.

Not sure really if this is the right place to post this.
Sad news today in our local paper the 23 year old son of our ex goalkeeping legend Paul Musselwhite ( 312 Vale games and over 200 for Scunny ) has taken his own life after years battling depression.

As a father of a 22 year old son no words must be able to describe the tragedy the Musselwhite family are going through.

God bless to Ronan and deepest condolences to Paul and his family.

Very sad news, it happened last week as Musselwhite is our GK coach and all of our players hugged him after our goal last weekend. Condolences to the family.

Bit early I know, but 900 already sold for Swindon on Feb 1st, if we get to 1000 then they’ll open behind the goal too. Can’t see it being many more than 1500 if that though. Will depend on next couple results.

We have a reserve team again, didn't for a few seasons, not sure what league and how many games but they did play last week against Rotherham.

Looking at their fixtures/results they also play/played Donny, Walsall, Scunny and for some reason Mansfield U21
We must've just missed each other then because we scrapped ours and brought it back under the guise of an U23/development squad, but because there weren't any decent teams in the league and we were beating them 10-0, 14-0 etc every time we scrapped it and just set up friendlies instead and generally head of to Leicester, Sheffield United, Forest etc.

Football. We played absolute rubbish in the first half. Our opponents should have scored four easy goals in the first twenty minutes. We win 3-1. Crazy. This is why we go each week.

I have come to the conclusion that Lowe is a genius. Not since Ali v Foreman have I seen rope a dope, and never in a football match! He must have read the reports that you are unfit, and decided to let you tire yourselves out in the first twenty five minutes as you had gilt-edged chance after chance. And low and behold you ran out of puff.

Pearce was very good, probably best man on the pitch.

You lot don't seem to know the real story here.

Always had loads of swearing, this is a pretext to get rid of some of those that are protesting about the stadium move, having a go at Vince/Cooper etc. Been an on running issue between the regime and the South Stand bods for a couple of years now.

It's not foul language the club are really targeting, it's alleged abuse towards members of staff or the fuck Eco Park chants etc they are trying to eliminate. If those same fans were chanting pro regime stuff there would be no action taken whatsoever. Easy to use the 'family club' spiel when it suits, and turn a blind eye the rest of the time.

It was only a few weeks ago that Cooper swore during an interview live on air, DV has dropped an F bomb live on air too. And then there was this on Vince's twitter.


And yet suddenly swearing at the ground is seen as a shocking offence and clamped down on, give me a break.

I'm of the belief that when a man reaches the age of about 45 only a very moderate hairstyle is acceptable. On that basis, I can't bring myself to like Mr Vince.

Paul Hurst has said we had 10 fit outfield players training today, saturday is not going to be fun.
How is this even possible? Your chairman was on Radio Humberside saying your wage budget is in excess of £3M this season and you have an entirely separate U23 squad?

No, but dissent is not welcome. FGR is a publicity vehicle for Ecotricity and nothing is allowed to damage that.

Admittedly, we're talking about middle class fans of a football club in the Cotswolds...but it's still a form of oppression what the authorities at your club are doing.

The club is much more geared towards the corporate/VIP side then ever before, fans barred from areas they used to be allowed, security on every door, heavy handed stewarding, all the standing fans treated like second class citizens and no anti regime opinions are allowed. Great to get all the international press attention, just don't let them talk to or see the South Standers. Hippy free for all my arse.

I agree with Chris on the FGR situation but with the caveat that the club were forced to intervene because everything was getting out of hand.
FGR has a 129-year history in the hamlet of Forest Green and almost immediately after chairman won planning permission to build club at another site those opposed to move mounted a high profile disruptive campaign.
That is the root cause of trouble at TNL.

Another example in the long litany of middle class white people being the victims of oppression. I blame the EU. Can’t wait to move to Spain now the libtard remoaners have ruined are country!

Surely the root cause is the club moving after 129 years - if they stay there's no disruption.

Yes and no.
The current home cannot cope with huge crowds: the main road is blocked for an hour after match, power to the stadium is inadequate & FGR must bus in water tankers.
There is no room for expansion.
And yes it is a great shame to lose FGR's historic home. But those living in Nailsworth can transfer their allegiance to Shortwood which is only a mile away.
It is a case of damned if we move or damned if we don't.

How big a water tank can you get on a bus?
I`ve struggled with a suitcase before now.
