GCAFC vs AFC Telford - 23rd Oct 2021
#1

Our league form: DWLLLLLDL
Telford league form: WLDLLLLLW
They are 2 pts above us.
This will be our 5th home match, currently have 4pts, scored 5, conceded 4.
This will be Telfords 6th away match, currently have 0pts, scored 2, conceded 13.
Must win game this, we haven’t scored a league goal since Sept 11th, that’ll be 42 days on Saturday. Both of us have relatively new managers at the tiller.
Should be dry but with a moderate breeze, gusting up to a strong breeze channeling up the estuary into the T-End. Let’s make sure the only tears in the eyes for City fans are due to the wind.
Come on City!!!

The classic 6 pointer so early in the season - I hope Dejon is fit.

Telford's manager was someone who applied for the job when Rowe left so I'm sure he will be keen to prove a point.

When they came to us at Ciren in 2009 they brought a couple of hundred. I think they'll bring a couple of dozen on Saturday.

Unfortunately Gladfans it sounds like we may have to wait a while for Dijon. Let’s hope Ollie can provide the goods!!!!

Reading the away travel guide from AFC Telford it mentions that three hours free parking is available at Sainsbury's. Are we really encouraging this?!!

Well we know Dijon isn't fit so we go again without a target man. Worrying times but hope mmc can rediscover scoring goals. We need 3 PTS sat. No matter what.

Telford have signed a loanee from Doncaster but it's not Ed Williams, it's Liam Ravenhill, an 18 year old midfielder.

I just wanted to say this today … I / we fully accept this season thus far has been an utter disaster. I / we are all fully committed to turning it around and we still have targets that just must be met, if not met, we can at least all look at a mirror and say “I gave it all, 100% and we just didn’t achieve it, but could have done no more”.

So far this season we’ve backed the management team in pre-season, during the season and right up to today. We’re still over budget and that was already one of the top four budgets in the league. We’re two players that the manager is trying to loan out and one that has no future sadly within the first team.

For me this season feels like saving for and buying the car you wanted, only to find out it’s always in the garage with issues.

I’m personally hurting a lot, I hate losing. Remember I’m a fan first and how I first got involved … just to help and get us home. So for me, I’m hurting more then you’d think.

I’m fully aware we’re been rubbish to date and it’s not good enough. But … I still want a season to be proud of and that’s not by just avoiding relegation with the fourth (ish) biggest budget in the league! I expected and expect still, so much more.

LM needs a bit of time though, as long as things are improving on the pitch he needs a chance with all players fit and available, creating competition for places. He’s been unlucky with some early fixtures, with Fydle just gone and Brackley next week. Hopefully we’ll see more ‘green shoots’ today that show he’s having an impact on the team. Lee is also going to be hurting if results go against us.
