SATURDAY 21st JANUARY

Recommended Posts

I was in the group that went to Guernsey Sat with Eversley and just have a few points above the trip.

 

The trip was amazing and the way Guernsey treat you is top class from the minute you get there to the minute you leave.

Sav and Clem also had the players switched on. I am sure sometimes players (not all) go there just for a laugh but the management had put in a belief we would get something out of game.The simple point of the game is that we deserved to win. We had the better chances. The sending off was a certain one. The pen was a pen. He kicked our player and not the ball. Dont see how it not a foul. We could have been down to ten as well with your pen but as inmyday has mentioned Guernsey could have had another send off so it evens it up.

 

After game the players could then relax and we enjoyed the evening. i think the pubs loved us in the evening.A few sore heads in morning but that could be down to the Chairman and Captain ordering 100 jeager bombs.Met a few of the Guernsey players in the night club (they agreed with pen and SO). Baker and Allen were having photos taken together alot.

 

Good luck to Guernsey FC as you will still win the league and all your staff and players were very good after game.

 

Heard Sav and Clem put £500 on Eversley to win ;)

I don't think there is anything wrong with betting on a game your are involved in as long as it is to win the game only ie no scores, first corners etc.

Considering the conditions both teams played some good football. The wind was always going to be a huge factor, 2-0 at half time felt like a par score with the wind.

 

Under normal circumstances a point away at Hanworth would be seen as good result as they are clearly a good outfit, however given that Guildford seem unstoppable at the moment it feels like 2 points lost.

 

Flatulence and footy have never been good partners !

hanworth 2-2 windsor. went to see this and a great advert for the CCL. all this guernsey talk is taking away from this cracking game. anyone else watch this one?

 

I have been quite happy for this to have slipped under the radar. I can not find anything to disagree with any of the comments already posted. Just a shame that the wind played such a significant role in the game.

But the FA do and players should be aware of this rule. Was a story on the BBC website in 2010. Link here.

I know a number of players read this forum and hopefully they might now be aware of the rule.

I would imagine that the rule preventing players (who compete in the FA Cup) from betting on any other FA Cup match is broken more than once each season!!!

Any participating sportsman betting on matches has to be a big no-no.

 

Look how the Paki's suffered - NO BALLS AT ALL !

The gash must have been from another incident because TV footage shows no contact, it couldn't have been any clearer.

 

See for yourself, see tv footage on link below.

Eversley did deserve the win though, well done Eversley.

Looking forward to seeing those tv pictures of our penalty as well. Our player has a cut down his leg from the challenge,so fairly certain there was some contact!

 

Some of the GFC fans on here could learn a few things from the Committee/Players at their club with regards to winning AND losing gracefully.

 

Good luck to GFC for the rest of the season.

 

Heres the evidence NO CONTACT !

How far away were you from the penalty incident GD? Closer than the referee? If not I'd be more inclined to go accept the decision of a neutral, qualified referee opposed to a unqualified supporter of one of the teams who was further away from the incident. No?

 

Obviously us unqualified people could see it clearer ! see TV evidence, I await your apology

Looks like contact just below the knee to me GD with your defender's knee.Take off those rose tinted specs and look at it more closely. I would reiterate that I would bet my life on Mark Morgan not play acting. You don`t have to take my word for it....but it would be a pleasant surprise if you did!

Just back from the Guernsey trip and a great victory for our boys. To say i am disappointed with some of the Guernsey posters comments is an understatement.

We were the better side on the day, pressed you high up the pitch, gave you no time and stopped your supply to Allen. Collectively I thought we out worked and out fought you. At 2 nil up after 50 minutes we had a great chance to go 3 up with a whipped cross which managed somehow to slip past our three players in the box for a tap in.Tardiff pulled off a great save to deny Baker as well.

Did our keeper have many saves to make? The answer is no!

Did Guernsey miss any sitters? The answer is no!

Our penalty was a foul, simple as that. I have known Mark Morgan for 5 years now and he is far too honest to dive. He also has a gash just below his knee resulting from this reckless challenge as I am sure tv footage will bear out.

A lot has ben said of the referee's performance but in my opinion Zico Black was lucky to stay on the pitch. Having been booked in the first half a couple of late tackles in the second were worthy of a booking. Our centre back could have been sent off but so could yours with two fouls on the outside of the box when the last man.

Timewasting? We were winning the game, what do expect us to do...hurry everything for your benefit? Get real!

I have no doubt as your climb up the pyramid system there will be a game in the next few years...probably in the FA Cup when Guernsey will be the underdogs and the shoe will be on the other foot.

The Guernsey committee,players and people we met last night showed real class and were exceptionally gracious in defeat as they were in victory when they beat us in August, its a real shame the same can`t be said for some of the posters on here in the last 24 hours.

 

Well here's the footage you obviously don't know him that well cos here the d.......

I never said he dived, thought at the time he tripped over his own feet or the ball and hurt himself, dont think he or his teammates claimed a penalty.

Unable to view the footage as i'm travelling today.

 

GD - Apologies that we have benefitted from a poor decision for the penalty (as per your post above)

 

What were your thoughts on the other decisions discussed in this thread:

 

1) Potential red card for our defender (penalty incident)?

2) Your players red card?

3) The tackle that resulted in our player being stretchered off?

4) Foul on our forward when clean through,but offside given?

 

Hopefully I'll be able to view tomorrow

1) Thought your player should have been sent off as he was the last man and it was a goalscoring opportunity

2) Our players red card ( 2 yellows ) haven't spoke to Jacques yet but Red card was probably right

3) They didn't show it on TV and I honestly didn't see it ( I sound like Arsene Wenger here I know ! )

4) I didn't know what the hell was going there ! it was all a bit bizaree ! Not sure !

 

I've answered as honestly as I can so no backlash please, this is how I saw it !

Thanks for the reply.

 

My view at the time was that Allen was going away from goal and possibly the ball was running away from him. Pleased the tv cameras will let me have another look at it.

 

Also thought your player was walking a tightrope and the foul was quite deliberate.

 

Shame they didn't pick up some of the other incidents.

 

Hope you get back to winning says at Egham tomorrow night

Thanks mate, I'm sorry for my posts about the ref and other stuff but we all say stuff we regret at times. It was all in the heat of the moment.

 

You did deserve the win as you were the better side. Good luck for the rest of the season.

 

I need to learn to keep my gob shut more ! lol

Will have my say too, if that's ok?

 

BBC coverage showed a bit more action.

 

1, thought at the time ir was a red especially with a referee giving out cards like it was Christmas, tv overage didn't change my mind

2, thought once booked he was on dodgy ground, but same for many other players on both sides

3, sorry did not see it, but hope your player is ok?

4, guess if it was offside that's the first offence?

 

What kind of magic spray does your physio use? Your right back went down injured, physio treated him, signalled for a sub, then player makes an astounding recovery. Sorry but that sportsmanship belongs with the big boys in the Premier League.

 

I did not boo your players or agree with anyone doing it, but it was not for beating us which I congratulate you but for the manner in which it was obtained. Constant time wasting which went unpunished by the referee and for the unsporting behaviour of some of your players, as indicated in previous paragraph.

 

Good luck for the rest of the season.

Think there were several injuries picked up during the game. We thought the right back was coming off. However the physio was a bit quick to signal for a sub.

 

The foul on the player that was stretchered off was quite nasty from my angle.

 

The time wasting could be levied at both teams. In the first half the young ball boys delayed the game on three occasions. I understand it was not deliberate,but the end result is still the same. It's worth remembering that our players are used to catching a quick breather when the ball goes out of play. The multi-ball obviously prevents this,but I didn't think we were too excessive with the time taken to re-start play. I can see that it is frustrating though,when you are chasing the game.

 

Quick question,is it the same 4th official at all your games? He wasn't very helpful when we needed to make a sub for the lad stretchered off,stating that we hadn't pre-warned him.......sorry we should have known our player was going to get injured! This resulted in us playing with 10 for a couple of mins. Also said it was ok for Tony to walk onto the pitch to talk to his player. Very strange character
