Charlie Cooper sent off for FGR, although some may say that is a good thing. Two nil to Wycombe at HT.

Indeed, now our season is petering out to mediocrity, on days like to day where we look set to lose a midtable clash, following the antics of FGR provides some interest.

Just came across this comedy Twitter feed: https://mobile.twitter.com/byebyefgr

It was a good thing. We looked far better without that pair of tools.

"I think Mark is the right man."

“We’ve got a long future together as we push up through the leagues."

Good to see he still thinks he is going to walk the divisions

So, a vote of confidence for the manager.

Sacked on Saturday night, then.

Confused.com, you should have done your homework before trying to win brownie points on my post on another forum.
If you had checked it out you would have seen that my argument was instantly agreed with by original poster. My post could have equally applied to CTFC, another club with small crowds.
I’ll post it here but substituting CTFC for FGR:

“Lincoln had that wonderful FA Cup run last season which added £ millions to their coffers. Plus they are averaging 8,616 supporters against CTFC’s 3,139, a difference of 5,477 to Lincoln and close to the entire capacity of WR.
Lincoln have a lot, an awful lot more money than CTFC.
They can compete and win higher grade players because they are prepared to pay them many times higher wages.”

Confused.com I suggest that you as a Cheltenham Town FC supporter just concentrate on your own club. You have fallen flat on your face trying to make mischief for me.

Here is the FGR version: "They are owned by Ecotricity, an energy company who bankrolled the club to the tune of £2-3million losses a year during the last few years, and have enough cash to build a new training facility and stadium from scratch without leveraging debt, and have more money than pretty much any team in L2"

So yes Lincoln may have more money than CTFC, but not FGR. You lot are the Man City of the lower leagues in terms of an open cheque book from an energy generating owner. That is why fans of every club in L2 are laughing at you being bottom. Money can't buy instant success you nouveau riche moneybags club.

Why don't you cut and paste the complete article you posted OTC, instead of just select the one item re Lincoln's cup Money. The sentences were you portray yourselves as the little penniless amateur club at the top of a hill, Who have suddenly found themselves in with the mega rich, who have money to burn?
There are very few clubs in L2 throwing money around in the hope of buying success. DV is one.

Aye. Was on a 6th month contract which ran out on 1st January. He didn't sign a new one once he knew Vince's millions were sniffing. Wonder if PV can make a case for FGR tapping him up.

Shows how important it was Eisa was tied down, otherwise he could have left and signed elsewhere this week.

They don't have a case and have no issue whatsoever with us signing him., All players approaching the end of their contract will be looking around/talking to other clubs to see what's on offer.

You can even sign pre-contract agreements 6 months before the end of your contract in the Prem, so at lower levels where players need to earn to pay their mortgages, it would be crazy to expect them to wait until they're out of work before they start looking for future employers.

So why did Vince report CTFC to the FA?

RR was one I thought we should go for (as mentioned in another thread) once it was clear he was up for grabs a few weeks ago. I guess FGR have more cash.

Luckily, as seen with FGR's failure to get promoted for so long, mercenaries do not always have the drive and commitment to fight for the cause, so hopefully Reid cares more about his wage and the vegan pies than he does keeping FGR in their false position in the EFL.

A two and a half year contract and nearer home. We all like job security. Why the cynical comments?

True, depends on motivation I guess. Some players strive to play at the highest level they can, others happy to stay at a lower level if better financially/geographically.

An upgrade on Special Agent Collins. Phillips is a Robin for life. Not only would he make Collins style comedy howlers at the same frequency, he’d also stamp on the shins of Doidge and Reid in training.

Well technically I suppose the more critical posts of Charlie Cooper could be viewed as attacks on FGR/Ecotricity personnel!
