That's how I saw it - although being behind the goal is never the best place to make offside decisions. Also, being so low down meant that I didn't get a very good view of Canvey's equaliser either, and so can't really say whether Wilko was fouled. As for Rouse's second yellow, whether or not Mr. Deadman really had to show the yellow card, Rouse was foolish to make the challenge in the first place.
A similar pattern to the Northwich game really - a fairly early goal, but rather than pushing on and just continuing to play as we were, we always seem to invite the opposition onto us, and this really has to stop. In particular, bringing off Manny meant that holding the ball up in Canvey's half became very difficult, and any long clearances by us, with Roy up front alone, just came straight back.
