If you think CTFC were treated badly by FGR, look at their forthcoming game vs Chesterfield.

The Spirerites have been allocated just 524 tickets (all standing) for the game. 524!!

4000 home fans minimum in that case so looking at a crowd of 4500+ very positive and more than I expected.


I was thinking that today, Robin. I would expect 4300\4500.

Be well over 5,000 if Mark Cooper does the right thing and announces he is starting Charlie Cooper. Young Charles is a Gloucestershire cult hero and the fans want to see him on the WR turf.

He wont subject Charlie to the 'venomous' attitude of the Whaddon Road cauldron. After all they are 'potentially a
bigger club than Cheltenham' and don't need to descend to our level. A defeat would 'tarnish the reputation of this great
club'. All quotes taken from their delusional forum.

Apparently they are now the 'Green devils', the old nick-name of 'Rovers' being a little bit old fashioned
from a marketing point of view. Similarly their club colours have been ditched in favour of green. If they
ever make their much vaunted move to Stonehouse they will be FGR in name only.

If any of them think Dale really does eat spinach and nut cutlets in the privacy of his own home
they are more gullible than they realise. He is a businessman - the biggest subsidy predator in the UK.
Sure, he's clued up on environmental issues but he's just playing the game. Once the green subsidies
are gone it's game over.

None of our fans use the "Green Devils" nickname, the vast majority think it's a load of s#!t. Quite a lot of our chants still include "black and white" references as well.

I see some of your vindictive supporters are being swayed by Vince in their disrespect for the game and opponents. Posts calling for Chesterfield fans to be “reported to the relevant officials” for suggesting they may have to go in the home stands at TNL. If anyone should be reported it should be FGR for only providing 524 tickets (not much more than half the terrace) and no seating. It is just petty pathetic and nasty from FGR.

Some? You mean one. I can only see one person saying that. A few more might be petty too, but the majority would have no problem with Chesterfield getting more tickets and better facilities.

Judging a fanbase on comments from one or two clowns on a forum is not accurate.

Didn’t see anyone else criticising or contradicting him though, so only assume tacit condoning.

If they move ground, they won't be FGR anymore. DV will have changed everything there is to change and it will be complete by changing the name.

Why don't we run a competition suggesting a new name for (formerly) Forest Green Rovers for when they move to Stonehouse or wherever?

Can't help but feel that decent fans such as Chris and Giraffe are getting the flack for one or two idiots (OTC etc.) and some of our fans are now lowering the bar a bit too low also.

You meant to say "he is an absolute moron" I take it?

He may well be in your opinion, however I would imagine his grammar and spelling are slightly better then yours. ;)

Athletico Biomass Green Subsidy City
'Athletico' and 'City' captures where their fanbase thinks they ought to be and the other
words reflect their source of income.

or

Free Ticket Town
-kind of reflects their swelling fanbase

or

The Little Club at the Top of the Hill United
-the lazy journalist's name of choice

It wouldn't shock me if we dropped the "Forest" part of our name after moving. What's the point in being called Forest Green when we don't play in Forest Green? Might as well just be called Green Rovers. Would fit well with the company ethos etc. If we wanted to maintain the FGR aspect, maybe FC Green Rovers.

We'll still be Rovers so they'll think most fans will settle for it.

"The Rovers FC" would be fitting after moving.

I cringe every time I see the words 'Green Devils'. Plastic corporate naffness forced onto a historic club along with a change of colours and all the other piffle inflicted by Vince and his cronies. Soul sold for a doughnut, I have genuine sympathy for the long-term supporters who must be worrying about where this will all end.

Glad to hear it isn't used by most of your support though I can think of one 'fan' who probably laps it up.

It makes me wonder how I’ve gone in the FGR end using my home address for the past couple of years? Must just be lucky I guess - I do feel for him/her though, that’s a real bind :lol:


Never known such a pathetic bunch.

Don't worry, the majority of our proper fans have got tickets, and will be there making noise. I had to try a few times to get through, but honestly who gives a f#!$? If you wanted to get a ticket, it wasn't impossible.

Gloucester Green will be suitable when they combine forces with glos. to try to form a club with some credibility but no realistic prospects.

I simply do not understand the logic behind the "we won't be selling tickets to FGR fans on the day" statement by the club.

Firstly, there are hundreds of tickets left so why not. Secondly, I have never been a (not sold out) game and found the turnstiles closed. Clubs say this, but it usually turns out to be bullcrap. Pound to a penny there will be a cash turnstile open for the Hazelwoods tomorrow. So, why say there won't be?

Balloons though

Just think it through:

‘Alright monty? Going to football on Saturday?’

‘Yep’

‘Cool. Going to pub before?’

‘Nope’

‘Aw, why not?’

‘Got the balloons to blow ain’t I?’

Absolute laughing stock of the national game

I wonder if they'll bring a foam hand as well. :lol:

F*ck em. They treat every club’s away fans like second class scum and won’t change. No point taking the moral high ground any more. At least they are getting a roof, seats and plumbed toilets.

Haven't had chance to check out all the latest FGR love letters on this site but I will offer a genuine 'lets have a good game' to all attending match.

Must go and get ready for coach.

Coach? Surely it's cheaper to drive or use public transport!
