Re: The Forest is Green!

So no non vegan products allowed in the ground. Have you ever tried putting non dairy milk in a cup of coffee? It turns into cottage cheese.

Re: The Forest is Green!

So loads of Vegan football fans are going to change alliegance to FGR because they are a Vegan club? Not going to happen. They're selling a £20 match ticket for a ground where the nearest train station is in a different town, not a £1 sausage roll that you can buy on every high street. I bet if Greg...

Re: Rival Watch

I like Sheffield United. They play good football under an English manager and every single player in their squad is British or Irish.

Re: The League of 4

Considering Boro’s position, form and Tony Pulis, something would have to go very very badly wrong for us to lose more than 2-0 If they go 1 up they’ll be desperate to hang on, not throw people forward trying to score 4 or 5. Likewise we’ll not be throwing men forward to try to get a point at 1 or ...

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

I thought Joorabchian was only involved in the appointment of Gomes as his agency deals almost exclusively with Portugese and Brazilian based clubs and players and if the owners were determined to go Portugese, to be fair, he is an expert on that market. I reckon every loanee was on the radar to so...

Re: Rumour - Reece Brown

John Smith
leon Is he a vegan?

His day time diet will be as they only serve vegan food at the training ground.


Apparently the squad all meet up at Greggs for a Steak Bake before and after training.

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

It probably adds to the debate about United needing someone in a Head of Recruitment, Technical Director or Director of Football type role though. If they had someone adding a bit more of a strategic direction to transfers and the building of a squad they could probably get away without having the ...

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

Clement got jobs at top European sides as a coach. As many fine coaches have discovered to their cost, management is a completely different barrel of monkeys. Not meaning to repeat myself endlessly but as we all know, Liam Moore has aluded to his inability to communicate effectively as his biggest f...

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

Coppell understood exactly what made each player tick and he kept it simple.

And he also placed great emphasis on trying to sign players with the right personality to start with.

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

At the the time of his sacking, I wanted Clement to be given more time but I think the decision has been justified and the improvement in results is just a small part of that. I feel that Gomes has invested far more of himself into the club than Clement ever did. I don't demand success but I do expe...

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

That seems to be quite a revisionist assessment of the past few seasons. I remember plenty of people giving Clement credit for gritty wins against Preston and QPR. I also remember him getting very little criticism for the abject performances against Sheffield Wednesday and Ipswich, certainly nowhere...

Huge following?

Average attendance 2,600.

Be proud of what they've achieved by all means but be realistic. Having money is one thing but it has to be sustainable.

Re: The Forest is Green!

I think you may well be wrong. They have the financial backing for the long term and an ambitious english chairman who will stay (I know this) and is pumping money in. They want to be in the championship in 5 years from when they went up last season. Not out the realms of possibility Well, if the c...

Re: The Forest is Green!

Existing in a village of 5,000 people in pretty firm rugby country, there's clearly a ceiling to their ambitions and I reckon they're very close to hitting it.

Re: The Forest is Green!

I had tickets for a FGR match the other week. Got to Nailsworth, asked someone where the ground was and he said "Follow the crowd".




I ended up in the garden centre.

Re: End of season contracts

Some sources say Blackett is too.

I think he's worth hanging on to unless he's on stupid money.
