I'm just trying to put in some perspective....take a look at tonight's opposition....let's see how we fare Saturday....its not about Cooper....but be fair it is men against boys tonight...so let's not run away with ourselves but onward and upward
Some perspective is fair enough. But it's time to move on and be optimistic.

I have no clue about the Reading team but only 3 of our players are over 22 I believe, so men against boys seems a stretch

I wish I could have watched this game but the stats are hugely encouraging
Most of our 18 are under 23 so that argument is over

You can only beat what's in front of you and a win is a win and great for a new team and manager to gain confidence... Winning is a habit. I know it's gunna hurt some of our fans on here but suck it up. CooperWang is history thank fack.

Well done to the team and manager, onwards and upwards.

It is all about Cooper for you though it seems unfortunately.

As someone said, most of this side we have out are kids, and they have a manager who finally wants to let them express themselves.

20 shots at goal, seven on target. Coops would have had them in for extra training tomorrow to drill that nonsense straight out of them.
men against boys though.....literally
Last year we took our first team to Newport and lost 2-0 after a typical tentative approach. This was half our first team and they’ve got our fans going nuts. Gold that is. Doesn’t matter who the opposition is, we’ve gone about it the right way.
