    Forrest Green are owned by Dale Vince, whose business is a gas provider. If he's one of those whose company are affected by the Ruskies hiking gas prices he could be in serious trouble, resulting in him pulling the plug at FGR.

    Talking of this subject I see Andy Pilley, owner of Fleetwood was in Court yesterday on a multi million pound charge of money laundering and fraud through mid selling energy through his company. Watch this space?

    And he is sueing those prosecuting him for £10m damages for Human Rights breaches, trespass and misfeasance in public office. Apparently one of the investigators in an email offered to ‘take out’ Pilley by shooting him with a deadly sniper rifle ‘accurate (from) 1,000 yards plus’

    Because FGR are in our league (top of it in fact) and it could impact on us if he pulled the plug.

    To be fair it should be general football, but then 99% of what you posted about covid should have gone into general talk. Touche.
