Good point in the end. We battled hard but Forest Green had the better chances and it's frustrating that we didn't have a shot in target. Forest Green already look like a team who are used to playing together whereas we still look like a work in progress.

Maybe just in a bad mood but that was ******** appalling in an attacking sense. Well organised, caught them offside a few times, battled really hard, but we were as poor on the ball since…. Actually Leyton or barrow.
I’m sure he’ll come good but Taylor was absolute dog.
Bar a beautiful 20 minute burst against Bristol we’ve scored one goal and never looked like scoring today. As said probs regret the post tomorrow, but everytime weve been poor this season I’ve thought, we have the window…. Looking at that today, I fear we’re set for an 11th placed finish

similarities in the two teams..

scorers in last season's 1-1 both called Collins A (Archie and Aaron)

today's RCB's both called Sweeney (Pierce and Dan)

captains called Matt Jay and Jay Matt

(yep, it was a 0-0!)

Yes, we struggled in attack today but there were several mitigating factors. Firstly Forest Green are a very good side who are well-organised and, in defence, used to playing together. Meanwhile we were missing our best attacking player so far this season in Jevani Brown and were forced to play a makeshift central midfield. I think Taylor will be a good player for us but hard for anyone to play well when they've only just met their teammates for the first time a few days ago.

Didn’t see the game but a point a good result against one of the money teams. No shots on target according to BBC statistics. Is that no shots in didn’t create any clear cut chances or just didn’t create anything?! From what I’ve seen we look much better now as a team but just need a bit of time to get going and avoid any more injuries. No need to worry! What’s the news on Brown?!

Thought with Brown out, Jay would be able to slot into his natural role and really affect the game. Never happened.
You are being v rational about Taylor, but it’s a poor debut whatever.
Worried about depth.
Probably just letting the ol drink make me negative, but I thought that was really poor.
Nombe will score, just dont know where and when

Hope
12 halves of league football so far and we've scored in two of them. Add two home cup games with a total of one goal from the penalty spot and it is a bit concerning. Hopefully the magic 'gelling' will occur and the goals will come...
