Well unless they have been planting seed on top of the artificial pitch. https://www.suttonunited.net/news/2021/august-2021/let-there-be-grass/

Plus wasn't there a rightful outcry when Man U played someone on an artificial pitch in the CL suggesting it was absurd that artificial was OK in the CL but not in the FL?

Just watched the 'highlights', how the fuck is a disallowed goal not a highlight, watching that you would think FGR played us off the park. Nice to see us win in red!

Not read back.

Made the short trip to the Bug and Spider in Calne to take this one in...6 of us in total to take in the spectacle.

Probably the best i have seen us play so far, with some key players out.

I would say that Wards debut (i think) is the best one for a keeper i have seen. Hes was epic. Last season we played months with no decent keeper at all and now we have two great ones!

Simpsons disallowed goal was because we were on Sky end of. That would be given most days.

McKirdy never say die attitude was a joy to behold and the goal was superb. Was the second going in anyway?  His MOM was deserved although a bit tough on Ward.

The Gump pen was a penalty for me, slight delay before he dived but a great save anyway.

Gump are a good side and now maybe we can start believing that we might do something this season.

I got pissed with Victor Mildew anyway....darn those Pitcher deals...happy days!

I said on Saturday....

Not sure I have ever seen a keeper play so well for Swindon ever.
And I stand by that, league debut or not.

I wasn't there to witness Brez at Hartlepool so my statement definately still stands for me.

I was thoroughly impressed with us from start to finish on Saturday. We pressed high and this seemed to throw FGR off their game, they were sloppy in possession whereas we used the ball very well and won it back whenever it was lost. Yet again no goals in the first half but I think Simpson's should have counted, he does tend to get penalised just for being stronger than the defender. Perhaps he just needs to be a little cuter when using his body as the full on shoulder charge (which I thought was legal) always seems to be penalised.

Second half we continued on the front foot and Gladwin's inviting cross was diverted expertly into the goal by McKirdy. A superb finish which he made look easy. More great work from McKirdy with 10 to play, showing the same energy he had at the start of the game, driving into the box, drawing the keeper out and again expertly dinking it over the keeper to be finished off by Simpson. (I think it was going in)

It doesn't really tell the full story however, whilst we were miles better on the ball than FGR and to a man the performance was very high from everyone - the midfield 3 of Reed, Payne and Gladwin are really on song at the moment - yet Ward had to play out of his skin to keep a clean sheet. The save down to his left from the header was absolutely out of the top drawer and looking back on the highlights there were 4 or 5 really top saves, not just ones for the cameras either. If you are being critical some of the chances that FGR had, were free headers with markers nowhere near their men. This was a bit of a let off for me and I think may be our achilles heel this season. However if we can show attacking prowess that we did on Saturday, it may not matter too much.

The whole squad seems energised and in a positive frame of mind. We are nearly 2/1 to beat Rochdale at home on Saturday, I find those odds bizarre given we are third and Rochdale nearer the foot of the table.

I see the green Messiah has switched the gaslight on...

"Saturday's game wasn't a sell out - there was still space in the away stand. Our stewards do all they can to ensure fans spread across this open area. Too many away fans arrived literally just before the ref's whistle - and it takes time to search fans and admit them safely." Dale Vince 2021

The constant 'local rivals' bullshit from sky is getting tedious

Not as egregious as Swindon vs Yeovil which they have tried to peddle.

Fucking Brentford is closer and you'd get to Walsall quicker.

There is not 1 single FGR player that I would take over any of our side on Saturday, their passing at times was dire in comparion to ours with few balls finding their target, so much for them being a "footballing side" they looked ok at best but we passed them off the park at times.

I like Jamille Matt as a centre forward/target man but Conroy and Crich kept him totally out of the game and Simpson had a better game than Matt did.

And some post match views of FGR fans....

surprised you found some. They don't seem to exist on twitter judging by the replies to their official account.

Brezís performance v Hartlepool even better than Wards.
Both top class but all my history of watching football that was the best keeper performance I have ever seen. Two pens aside, one save from a deflection, can even see it now he was already committed but arched his back and somehow clawed the ball whilst going the other way.
Unreal.
