To be honest ,This was a game both team were really up for making every decision that didn't go there way the wrong one. ( hope that makes sense). Also being the first game in baking heat didn't help with keeping your cool.

 

Yes he did make afew strange free kicks and bookings I don't think he affected the final result. The strikers on the pitch all made mistakes with chances they were on the end off so he was not the only one.

Ash Utd 2 South Park res 5

 

I've kept quiet for too long.....we need to improve quickly or else

 

started ok but sloppy goals saw us go in 2-1 down at ht. 2nd half saw SP take control & played some very neat & attractive football & romped to a 5-1 lead, before we pulled a late goal back.

 

 

South Park Reserves will be no push overs, but we could easily be the wiping boys if we don't get our act together asp............hopefully this could be the last time Grumpy is Very Grumpy or a lot if people will be getting fed up with me (not that they ain't already)

Abbey Rangers 0 CB Hounslow 2

 

Abbey Rangers kick off in the CCL in front of a crowd of about 100 on a boiling hot day.

 

First 30 was about even but on 30 Abbey gave away a needless penalty. CB forward had lost control of the ball just inside the box near the D and was just about to lose it completely when an Abbey defender upended him. Ref had no choice. Converted by Nick Hardy.

 

Game continued with CB now in the slight ascensdancy and was fairly unspectacular until the 59th minute when Stuart Bamford was sent off for CB after an off the ball incident spotted by the linesman ! After this Abbey attempted to make their advantage count but to be honest they had no cutting edge up front at all. I suspect that could have played until midnight and not scored. As they pushed forward for an equaliser they left gaps at the back and on 89 one of these was exploited by Aston Ventour, who broke free, rounded the keeper and slotted it in.

 

Good start for CB who I predicted for the title. Abbey on this showing will struggle to make an impact this term.

The match report from our 2-2 draw with Windsor is here:

 

http://www.eefconline.co.uk/Fix2015.16-7.html

 

I had a great view of the penalty incident, although not the same one as the referee. I didn't think it was a penalty as Kyle got his shot away and maybe was impeded a little in the process but didn't think it was enough for a penalty. He then collided with the keeper and went over.

 

However, I heard some Windsor fans who were at my end but at an angle say they saw a push from a defender and I thought the referee might have seen that. However, if he had, it would have been the defender who was sent off and not the keeper. The referee confirmed to me after the game that he saw a foul by the keeper and yes there appeared to be contact, but it looked to me to be after the shot. What is especially harsh is that not only did Dennison got sent off, but we got the penalty and the goal AND he will get a one match suspension, and whilst keepers are well protected in other areas, some say too well protected, they are completely hung out to dry by this rule. This is not what the professional foul rule was brought in for I am certain of that.

 

We had a similar one a couple of years ago at Horley (ironically when Kyle was playing for them against us) and our keeper would have been better advised to not bother stopping him. How is that good for the game!

 

So yes, I sympathise with the Windsor team here, especially their keeper, although it must be said that a 2-2 draw was the right result between two even sides who, based entirely on just this one early performance will probably still make the top ten, but might just finish a couple of spots lower than last year.

A very unbiased and balanced view on the penalty incident Rich.  I think he got it wrong on all counts but like you said he says he saw a foul so there's no comeback whereas we all know he's wrong but hey ho S#1T Happens as they say !

Frimley Green 1  Staines Lammas 3

 

Good game of football this, both teams playing football on the floor, some tough but fair challenges going from both sides but of course some baffling refereeing decisions, BUT the result had nothing to do with the performance of the ref. 

 

A game which could have finished 3-3 or even 5-3 to the hosts. Frimley Could have been 3-0 up within the first 5-10 minutes, a goal scored, a Great GK save in a 1-1 battle, and then the post hit.

 

Staines worked hard and their pace on the flanks caused the problems and were rewarded for their efforts with their goals and we found ourselves down at 3-1.  We then won a penalty, unfortunately it wasn't converted and the final 15 minutes, the ball didn't leave the Lammas half, but a resilient Lamma's backline and a 5 start performance from their keeper kept the score at 3-1.

 

Tough first game, which could have gone either way, it wouldn't be fair on Staines to say we edged it as they obviously took the 3 points, but both teams contributed to a great first game of the season.

Staines Lammas were great visitors and we wish them all the best for the season.

For us, it's the first game, plenty to take from the game and performance wise very happy except for a slight lack of shape discipline at the beginning of the second half.

saw cb versus abbey pretty dull but to be expected for first game neither keeper making much in the way of saves.

cb on top with 11 on the pitch but when cb reduced to 10 they as said above lacked a cutting edge but for a first

game in coco take some positives. abbey looked organised an I think 1 nil would've been a fair result but as they

were pushing for an equaliser got done by a simple goal at the death.

nice set up over there an I don't think many teams will get much there. cb will grow an be a hard side to beat in

every area very composed.

Sounds like the Green were unlucky FB but of course you get 0 points for that,sticking the ball in the net is the most difficult thing to do in football and requires a lot of skill,better luck in your next game lets hope you win in the vase.

I was surprised of the Lammas result when I heard it as i watched them the week before and they were awful and took apart by Laleham. I had tipped staines for relegation this year when hearing that the whole of the Staines team left in the summer when the new manager arrived. No Liam Stone, Gav and Stu Bamford, Redrup and co all leaving. So I expect them to have a tough season as it looked like they had a lot of youngsters now and I only recognised one player from last season there now. Hopefully there be ok as I've enjoyed watching them over the years. Just a shame last years players didn't give the new manager a chance.

it wasnt a case of not giving the manager a chance 4-5-1 it was a case of going to a club that is growing and progressing. Stu and Gav bamford along with two others are at cb who have big plans.......redrup cant commit due to work reasons an so has dropped a level.

I think after laleham tore them apart you could say there gonna struggle it couldve been a much bigger scoreline but when 3 points are available it changes your mentality, fairly decent win at frimley but then there pre season suggests that there going to struggle aswell.

"but then there pre season suggests that there going to struggle aswell"

 

Why's that?  pre-seasons been quite successful for us and whilst trying different shapes, player set ups etc, we've conceded some goals, but that's what pre season is all about.  Are you really looking at pre season results to judge how a team is going to do in the league?    if so, have you looked into our positive results in pre season or just the negative ones against higher opposition?    It's quite shocking the lack of football understanding on this forum.
