Not sure of the exact application of the rule at our level, but I know in the Premier League + the Football League there is a cut off 19 league games after which you must accumulate 10 yellow cards before suspension. Again not sure what the application is whether that relates to the actual games played by each team or the rounds for the league. The 30th November was technically round 19, so potentially have we gotten away with it and Hatfield and Wheatley would have to get 10 cards before being banned?
Threshold for our league is the 30th Nov inclusive, so Hatfield will miss the Chester game if that was his 5th league yellow.

FA Website hasn't been updated and they only have him down for 4 yellows currently, whilst our official site has him down for 6.
Cheers for the info, assumed it would be something similar but wasn't sure on the exact rules. Shame, so close to getting away with it had Hatfield not been carded on Sat, although guess we benefit from the fact Wheatley will now accumulate 10 before a ban. Will be tough without him, been the player of the season so far. Although think he has played pretty much every minute so far, so well due a break on Saturday. Opportunity for Bascome to come in and stake a claim for a Starting spot.

A bit of credit needs to be given to Telford here. In the second half we just couldn't find a way through them, as they were so tight at the back - but then when they launched a counter attack they looked precise, neat and inventive. As the second half wore on it seemed like they had an extra man on.

They outplayed us - simple as that!

I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

It does seem odd not to use those options when we have them. Holness is a must start for me. Perhaps illness explains it, but then he could've used Bascome to switch it up. He's been criminally underused lately, and he's clearly in form internationally.

A switch up would be entirely justified Tuesday night imo.
Can't you use normal language?

It's a common idiom, and entirely normal. But ok, you go off.

Will admit, that particular turn of phrase was deliberate. Down with the kids, me.

Switch it up FFS, no one in the ground says that.
