Again today only one yellow card, would be great to keep this form up and not have to pay our £10/12k fine. Well done, it seems that after being called cheats for 4 games in a row we are starting to do something right, wind the oppo up and become more professional!! excellent.

All the best teams are regularly hated and called cheats - eg: Shrews, Hereford, Chester, would be great to one day be as good and challenge for Div3.

I couldn't agree more....
How many times have we seen our players booked for seemingly innocuous challenges in the Conference as our opponents have been much more acute and fallen at the right angle/time...?

Good to see that we seem to be a bit wiser to this mullarkey now.

Not that I'm overlooking the amount of times that Jacko and Rob Owen used to talk themselves into the book!

Yes - they're not happy are they??

Perhaps if they'd kept their discipline, no matter what, they'd have held their lead.

Based on Confguide, there were only 6 sides with fewer bookings than us before today, albeit that there are only a couplewho have as many red cards.

Hope I'm not tempting fate when I say that its been 7 games since our last red card - as we had 5 games with red cards in less than 25 games before then, thats something of an improvement.

What is stupid is how they think they can blame the ref for their players dissent. If they taught their players to shut up whatever the decision ( i know it seems impossible) then they would have had no cards

One of the bookings , according to the Nationwide report, was for timewasting rather than dissent - almost the same, I know and still the player in question being silly.

No, they were "robbed" through getting bookings from dissent? can never understand these nearly scousers...

Lack of discipline was always one of my main gripes. We now seem to have got to grips with Conference refereeing mentality, ie, slightly less than a chimpanzee, but sticking rigidly to the rule book.
We now have refs on our side, 50/50 decisions are going (mostly)our way, virtually no bookings or red cards and results are looking good.
It has taken a season and a half to wise up, but it is now paying dividends.

'By playing fairly unlike the dirty thugs from Margate' is what was meant by that cookie!
