Why so quiet?

As I'd shifted ends for the second half, I was quite close to the "penalty" incident. From my perspective, it appeared to be a clear penalty and not a dive.

 

As for Northwich, I also felt that they were a reasonable side with some quite talented and experienced players.

 

We should have killed off the game in the first half when we had the opportunity. Great goal from Jacko.

 

My MoM was Matt Rouse who is looking a great signing. I know that Fisher were sad to see him go.

I'd just like to make the point that commentators/pundits etc. often bang on about 'if it's not a penalty, why didn't he book the player for diving'. I believe this kind of stupid mentality (if it's not X, it must be Y) influenced the ref on saturday. If he didn't think it was a foul then fair enough, no penalty, but to book sidibe in this instance was absolutely ridiculous. If my memory serves me correctly both sidibe and the defender stumbled towards the ground, indicating some sort of contact between the two, and as mentioned earlier sidibe had his back to the player anyway and so couldn't have been looking for the penalty. It's just a case of logic.

 

The thing that most irritates me about non-league refereeing is the lack of communication between the ref and his assistants - especially on such a controversial incident as the sending off of sidibe.

 

And I was also wondering why sidibe received his first yellow card. He obviously didn't handle the ball, otherwise a free kick would have been given, instead of a corner to us?? A warning surely would have sufficed. Inconsistency is the word.

Moussa may have got away with the first yellow if he hadn't of raised his hands. Twice he shoved a player around the throat. His second was not a dive and probably not a penalty either but did not deserve a card.

 

The lino could have added his input but seemed reluctant to do so, probably because of the stupid comments and abuse he got from our own fans. Ok it shouldn't affect his judgement but I feel a good banter with the lino doesn't go against us. In response to ridiculous and unjustified abuse the lino quite rightly said "maybe your players should learn to shoot!" This was after Roy missed the sitter but Moussa should have shot himself after going thru their defence on his own.

I must have watched a different game i thought Rousse had a nightmare defensively and was caught well out of position for their first goal but was excellent going forward.

James - agreed Rouse was out of position for the first goal but the goal wasn't solely down to him. Rouse should continue to be encouraged to get forward, whilst the other players around him need to cover for him. For example if Rouse goes bombing forward then
Jacko who seems to have lost that extra yard of pace could drop back to fill the vacant left back slot.

Most left backs are content to sit back and knock long balls up the channel but Rouse really goes at players, passes superbly and even tracks back and wins tackles. He also made the NLP team of the week so must have done something right.

It's a game of opinions Brian !!

 

Watching some of the round ups of the Pepsi Chart Show Cola Chamionship Leagues One Two & Three O'Leary, DSO & Bar last week on the telly....the referee's must have done extra close season training as, when anyone scored , they were straight on them.....ushering the sheep back into their pen...and if one got away & celebrated...then a yellow card was brandished !! Can't remember the lad's name who celebrated the second goal of his career....but he was sent for the early Sheep Dip !!

 

Utter boll*cks !!!

 

Regards,

Agree Rouse is talented, but tries to do too much going forwards. Prefer him to concentrate more on the defence side, when we have flair players like Drury and Sidibe who are more than capable of creating. Better still I'd have Skinner in the side for that position to provide more balance, and if we're going to play Rouse then play him further up the field.

Was Skinner injured??

 

Andy's interview on RK said "Someones not even going to make the bench on Saturday" and he went on and said "If everyones fit,3 people willmiss out next Saturday".

 

Prothers was obviously suspended on Saturday,so2 people would have missed out if everyone was fit -Andy's comment almost says that someone was injured - the only 2 tomiss out were Skinner & Shearer so 1 of them may have been injured?? (Probably I'm reading too much into andy's comment,but maybe not).

Skinner was injured on Saturday which meant the starting XI and the subs represented everyone that was available which I find very worrying indeed.

No he was off-side. If you are talking about the Moussa, with the keeper to beat, and he passes it to Roy instead. There were no other players around so he was off-side! Which was why we were surprised he passed it and not buried it into the net.
