Vegan Football Club Forest Green Rovers Promoted To The Football League

Recommended Posts

I thought you were joking about them being vegan, so I googled it... Well, TIL xD

Fuck sake. There were two battles to keep my numbers for the 92 up. I've been to Hartlepool but not Newport. I've been to Tranmere but not Forest Green. So obviously, OBVIOUSLY Newport stay up and Forest Green come up.

I'm taking it a bit more seriously now. I'm up to (well, down to) 71.

I always used to see hate for Forest Green on my Twitter timeline and always used to think it was a case of another Crawley who have bought themselves up the leagues. They're basically that plus a green party football club. Couldn't make it up.

Inflatable cows, chickens and pigs if we get them away in the cup xD

Newport's a dive and you may not make it out alive.

Good for them, I used to be vegan for 5 years, and it's just hard as hell as certainly a lifestyle.

Good on them. They were unfortunate to lose out last year having finished 2nd in the league and losing the final to Grimsby. Lost out in the playoff semi v Bristol Rovers year before that so good things come to those that wait. Hope they give a good account of themselves.

Got to feel for Tranmere, who have gave finished the season on 95pts and not gone up. 

For sure. But Non League is a bit savage like that with only one automatic place and one place in the playoffs.

Maybe they should open up three spots and relegate three league clubs.

Was there ever a reason why 3 drop from the Premiership and Championship, yet 4 drop from League One and only 2 from League Two?

Was wanting Tranmere to win personally, but as someone has already said it's nice to see a new name in the football league.

I can see both them and Lincoln surviving quite comfortably.

Cannot see the Football League teams agreeing to three places, for obvious reasons. 

Forest Green have thrown money at this, it's unsustainable, they remind me massively of Rushden & Diamonds, who are now a phoenix club.

Given there wage bill is something like two million a year for a non league club and have a population of five thousand people I cannot understand for the life of me how this green business model can be sustainable.

Nailsworth is not to far away from me so wanted then to go up. Might go watch them some time.
