Todays Game

Recommended Posts

I think that we did our selves proud. Even though we where down to 10 me we never gave up and continued playing are game. We were played off the pitch we were very much in todays game. All in all the game was good to watch. The only down point of the afternoon was the red card. My veiw point of it is yes it was a diliberate handball and it prevented a goal in the area. Also yes the ref was following the rules of the game by sending him off. But as its a friendly why could he not be a little leniante have give a yellow? or say to Andy Ford take him off as a substitute? It was nice to see Andy H asking the ref to let him come on!

All in all! well dun lads!!!

 

Up Da Fleet !!!

If the Ref had to follow the letter of the law, and not common sense, then why didn't he give Hills a yellow for kicking the ball away in the 1st Half?

There was so many times when people kicked the ball away after the whistle was blown, so a few could of been booked.

 

The score was :

 

GNFC 0 - 2 Gills

P.Agyemang 18min

J.Hills (pen) 44min

I thought the higlight of the afternoon was when the rotund gentleman headed the ball back into play from the back row of the "Swanscombe End" terrace. Such poise, grace and elegance. And then the celebration blush.gif

People may disagree with me on this, but I think, assuming that Proths did handle it (I couldn't really tell, but others thought so), the referee was right to dismiss him. Refs can get in trouble if they don't treat the rules exactly the same in a friendly as in a competitive game, as shown last summer when a referee was punished for not sending Mark Viduka off in a friendly and instead allowing him to be substituted. Also, the rules state that players red carded will serve a suspension in competitive games, and so the red card, far from being meaningless because it was in a friendly, actually has some importance, and so the referee had no choice but to send him off.

As for the game, I was surprised to see just two trialists on show - although presumably Andy thought he would put out a strong side given that this was the hardest of our pre-season friendlies on paper, and will give more trialists a chance against AFC Wimbledon in midweek.

Also, great to see Jacko back in a Fleet shirt!

yes i agree about the guy at the back.

With Provs sent off does that mean he wil;l miss the 1st game of the season now?

We did look soild at times and good skill from most players. can't get to AFC Wimbledon game going to France. Really wanted to, to see them and how many fans they will bring. I will be at Welling though.

A reasonably satisfying performance today.Jacko and Skins still looked pretty good working the left side in the first half and Jamie Pinnock looked really lively up front in the second half.Early days yet,but I`ve got a good feeling for the new season,a good looking squad taking shape,well done Andy and Ade!

A big season coming up for Pinnock, i really think he can have a great season if he's played in the team behind Manny and Roy but who would u leave out? The guy has a class touch and looks very dangerous when running and linking up with the front two. I think Jackson will be very much a bit player this season, i cant see him getting in the starting X1 although he will be good cover for Skins at left back. I thought it was amazing just what a strong squad we have building for the coming season, we have QUALITY cover in every position. I know its early but my starting team barring injuries and suspensions would be as follows.

 

Wilkerson

Protheroe Shearer Moore Skinner

Sidibe Saunders Mckimm Drury

Essandoh Omoyimni

 

Subs: Porter, Gledhill, Mitten, Jackson, Pinnock.

Cheers SBF !!!

 

" the guy at the back " ???? I can still head the ball quite well !!

...and "celebrate" too !!

 

..was a bit miffed (polite term !)about the "are you Jeff King in disguise" chants though !!

 

People don't recognise quality when they see it !! 'ave it !

 

I love you all !!!!!

 

Cheers,

i think they beat Barnet 3-0 today, "ouch" should be interesting tuesday, some one told me they took 1500 to brentford the other night, so that also looks interesting.

well i would go for the same team as chatham gary bar omoyinmi. At the moment i would have pinnock in, but may change depending on how well manny does.

According to the radio the ref was being assessed so he had to give the red card.

He still could have used his initiative, awarded the goal saying the ball was over the line before proths touched it. It is the refs opinion that counts, after all.

And everyone would have been happy.

Yes - Surey was 17.

 

9 was Ward - the Cray forward - 24 years old not played anywhere else and Andy says he "sees something in him".

 

The coloured guy who came on late was the Carshalton player we are looking at.

Very impressed with Porter, looks very calm and assured, got some well timed tackles in, passed the ball well and looks qite pacy. He and Mooro looked very comfortable together.

Rouse looks another good bet for the future, did all the right things.

Yeah, thanks for that...

 

I was referring to your quality side above, the one where I assume we go for a draw at home?

I may be just one of the few but i prefer Charlie Mitten in goal, takes his time and does not boot the ball upfield so ofton my team

 

Mitten

Shearer Porter Moore

Gledhill Protheroe McKimm Jackson Drury

Pinnock Essendoah

 

Subs: Wilkerson Skinner Saunders Sidbie Onyimni

I think with the quality squad we have with strength in depth Andy has some selection problems which in a sense is no bad thing.

 

Not too many disagreements with the side above. Tough call for no.1 goal keeper. Porter and Moore looked good on Saturday and played well together and then Shearer comes on and has a really good game. I'd still like to find a place for Skins but at whose expense I don't know. And although Manny is probably a better player than Pinns, I still believe that our attack looks more effective when Roy and Pinns play together.

Delighted with the fact that having made lots of subs we looked as good throughout the game as at the start - just shows the depth we've been talking about all summer.

 

I'd go for

Wilko

Gledhill, Porter, Moore, Skinner

Drury, McKimm, Saunders, Jacko

Pinnock, Essandoh

 

Subs: Mitten, Shearer, Protheroe, Sidebe, Manny (Love the speed from those 2 when everyone else is cream crackered!)
