Re: Boston V Darlington

It's all well and good looking at still images several hours after the game has finished. But, in reality the referee does not get the time to analyse still photos to work out the angles etc... In real time there was no difference between the two tackles. The difference was that the referee took tim...

Re: Boston V Darlington

Would not surprise me if AA went 3 (Lawlor Ellis Cooper ) at the back. Don't know who he would play in midfield but have Purver and Rose in front of the 3.. I think Lambert and Charman will play off Cassidy..
Will be interesting to see what the team actually will be.

Re: Chester Away

I don't necessarily agree with that. The two outstanding team in this league are clearly Fylde and Brackley. But even they have dropped unexpected points. Who ever can get a bit of consistency will challenge. It could be us, Chester or anyone.

Re: Chester Away

Listened to the game on the internet. Thought we might have held out as we seemed to be playing well, missing the 2 one on one's in the first half didn't help mind. Sounds like their gamble of pushing everyone forward paid off. Got to say I was very impressed with Alex Purver on the commentary his k...

Re: Kettering v Darlo

I guess there won't be a video as it might conflict with their match report. According to that Cassidy should have been sent off, Rivers should have had treatment off the field for the foul that lead to the penalty. And it was a fair tackle and not a penalty. Got to say that I was not at the game so...

Re: 6 players leave

Last season was a little underwhelming, but also the circumstances weren't brilliant it was a terribly interrupted season.

No. the reason for continuing in the FA trophy is that it's run by The F A. Not the national league. Thank heaven. I'm not sure who runs the competition has any bearing.

Re: That penalty

No, sorry but you haven't convinced me.
Both players went for the ball with outstretched legs, I actually think the Wheatley tackle was the cleaner of the two.
Though in my opinion both were tackles and neither was a foul.

Re: That penalty

Storey blocked the ball out of play for a corner? Yes, that's what the commentators said until they saw the replay. Then they thought that he didn't make any contact with the ball However. That was not my point. (and once again you know this). My point was, did he consider "what if the player chang...

Re: That penalty

How on earth are you claiming you know that is an accepted caution from our players?

I highly doubt any footballer would think that is a poor challenge. L...

Re: That penalty

No it's the law. Tackling without consideration for the safety of an opponent is a caution - by the laws of the game. Agree or not that is the definition of a reckless tackle. If a referee doesn't caution they are incorrect in law. They get marked accordingly in the system and their 'career' trajec...

Re: That penalty

It was an horrendous decision and could have cost us, However they were a poor team and we recovered from it.
The ref also got quite a few decisions wrong, not least the booking of Wheatlley. That was a great tackle and one every ball winning midfield player would relish.

They are not "quids in". No clubs are "quids in" right now trust me. We have made about 10x more from our FA Cup run than the money National League clubs get from BT over a season.

They chose that as their budget. Other clubs like Altrincham, have a more manageable budget.
