You were lucky 1-1

Recommended Posts

Guest

1st half you deserved to be 2 up, you were all over us, good support.

 

2nd half we could have had 4.

 

On reflection a reasonable score for you an away draw, for us a missed oportunity. I get the feeling scores like this will cost us at the end of year, we could have and should have won at home. If you do not turn pressure into goals. Great point blank save by your keeper in the last minute.

 

I do not suppose it will be as easy at your place.

Rubbish. It should have been 2-1 to us, and I'm not talking chances, I'm talking goals

We had a perfectly good goal disallowed. You had a couple of nice little bits, but mostly, you looked very mediocre.

 

I do not imagine it will be easy for your place to stay standing if you get a gust of wind. Your ground is awful!

You got home quick.

 

Both goals that counted were at our end, and I have been honest in my summary. Last 10 we were all over you.

 

All our end were dreading the whistle, we could hear your fans blowing. Your players were trying to slow it down and take up time I think that says it all.

 

Our 1st game at home in the conference, give the credit where it is due.

You were cr@p the last 10 mins you were over us because we had 10 men, you had 11 men and that ref that you paid to disallow our goal.

 

We also weren't used to all the craters in your pitch caused by your fat manager walking across it to the bus shelter.

Agreement on the officials, the sending off was harsh.

 

The goal was not disallowed by the ref, the linesman correctly flagged offside before the ball went in.

 

The ground is that of a Ryman team coming up and our players reflected that. You are the established conference side, your players did not reflect that.

 

We are not going to win anything but I think you will agree no team was crap.

Sounded from the Radio commentary that 3 key decisions went gainst us- the Canvey goal was a possible foul on Wilko, there was a doubt over the offside decision, and there were seemingly strong shouts for a handball in the Canvey box late on which were turned down.

 

Rouse really brought the Red Card on himself by arguing over the Canvey goal - we really must learn to cut these things out.

It was not the end of the story was it, you saw it different to the man who counted, the official flagged before the ball was even touched.

 

It is a shame but such is life but for a few inches and you would have scored, and but for a few inches at the other end we would have scored.

 

That is the end of story you have 1 and we have 1.

any other league game that i have seen with a decent ref would give a foul on wilko for their goal. and that is cos it was, not because keepers get too much protection from the refs these days. We were not offside for #2. CIFC? more like CIRFC thats ryman play.

You were practicly in Kent myself and the ref were about 10 yards from your keeper and we saw a 50-50 fair challenge, guess what the score stays the same.

 

OH and the lino didnt raise a flag and he had a better view than all of us apart from your keeper who put up very little protest if any, he just shouted at your defender.

I would have settled for a draw before the match started,but on reflection,we was robbed of a legitimate second goal,and if Wilkerson wasn`t fouled then he made a mess of the save.He made some great saves in the closing minutes so I`ll forgive him!I think Shearer should get a start in front of Porter,and Saunders looked a liability in midfield.Pinnock and Essandoh should start up front with Protheroe replacing Saunders and Manny and Moussa coming on later in the games to inflict pace on tiring defences.

Saunders a liability in midfield? Well I thought he had a good game, and I'd keep Manny upfront. Shearer for Porter only if his distribution is better, sometimes last season it was pretty awful. Enjoyed the game, we didn't really get a lot from the Referee and his assistants did we?

Facilities were pretty poor, I mean where else do you have to queue up all Half Time for the Toilets, floodlights were terrible, but at least they didn't go out!! And as for delaying the kick off when hundreds were supposed to be outside. Well I only saw a few trickling after 7.45. We made Boylan look very ordinary, but trust him to pop up with a very fortunate goal that would have been disallowed by 99 percent of Referees. 1-1 maybe a fair result, especially after that fantastic save at the death by Wilkerson, but I must admit to feeling a bit cheated by those 3 crucial decisions that went against us.

Oh and just as well the rain held off till the final whistle. No covered accomodation for away supporters, barely anywhere along the side of the pitch to stand, and just a tiny few seats near the corner flag to sit. Canvey has known for a number of years they were going to qualify for the Conference, supposed to have loads of dosh, so why are their facilities so poor?

Well when you go to Carlisle you will be put in uncovered terrace behind the goal like last night, i`m glad it was sunny when we went because it`s very open.

 

You won`t find many fans who will defend our ground but it has past the criteria to get us into the Conference and that`s all that counts. Plans for a new ground are with the council so if/when they get approved we can get on and build it.

It's all well and good building a new ground, but Canvey couldn't even pack the little dump they have now. Why on earth did we not get given the side up to the home dugout, as well as behind the goal?? They only had a handful of people standing there!!

 

As for Roy's 2nd, from my vantage point it looked as though Roy was behind the ball when Drury knocked it across, from which you can't be offside.

 

Rouse was unfortunate with his 2nd yellow, but the first was a stupid card to pick up. I have to say though that I cannot believe that Gregory only got a yellow for kicking out at, and throwing the ball at, McKimm on the half way line. Both the ref and lino were five yards from it!

Have to post anon. as have messed up my account..

 

As soon as i saw Mr.Deadmans name on the programme i knew we were in for some bad decisions..from where we were standing it was difficult to tell if it was a foul but it really did look like and the reaction of the fleet players said it all. Our 2nd-offside?I didn't think so...handball in the box?Looked like it but might have been a bit generous..Sending off?Definitely harsh..

To be fair to Canvey they battled well and i think if we had got 3 points it would have been a bit harsh on them,and before the game i was fearing the worst..

Another thing that really bothered me last night was our style of play.Where was the lovely intelligent football of the 2nd half of last year?We were like watching Wimbeldon,hopeless punts straight to their keeper,when we got the ball of the deck we played some nice stuff,we've got some good passers of the ball so make the most of it.Our strikers aren't exactly the best in the air,Roy for a big man is better with his feet and Manny and Pinno..well obviously they are the same and the same..

Ah well..

Well apparently after the game, the Canvey player involved in the goal admitted to fouling Wilko. I'm not complaining though as these things have a habit of evening themselves out during the course of the season.

 

The "offside" goal seemed harsh as I thought that Ess' ran on to it. and how our Canvey mate earlier in the thread can say that the Refs Assistant "Correctly flagged" is beyond me as he was at the other end of the ground!

 

Rouse needs to grow up and I would wager was given a bit of a tongue lashing by Andy F after the game. A great talent bit a bit headstrong. Thought Jacko came on and did really well, making two or three great tackles.

 

Facilities were really crap as usual and that pitch? wasn't exactly a bowling green was it! I just cannot believe how that ground passed as Conference standard. Do you realise that (on paper at least) Stonebridge Road has a smaller capacity than that dump! I was very disapointed in Canvey and think that their defence will need strengthening if they aren't going to struggle.

 

Glad that one is out of the way as at least we wont have to suffer going there again this season!

I thought we were very unlucky to only draw 1-1 as there were 5 or 6 marginal decisions that went against us and on another day would have been allowed and we would have won. These include

 

1. Foul on Wilko for equaliser

2. Offside decision for winning goal by Roy

3. Gregory not being sent off for kicking and oushing Porter

4. Rousse getting sent off for touching an Old Man on the pitch who went down like a sack of [***!!***].

5. Blatant handball by McGee (i think) for penalty

6. No foul given against Joseph for blantantly tugging Mannny shirt when clean through.

 

But have to say that the ground remains a toilet and was surprised by how few Canvey fans were at the ground for their first game in the conference. Of 1,233 crowd I would think betwenn 400- 450 were Northfleet fans.

from a non-canvey point of view do you believe that there were only 1200 in the ground, because it baffles us! If there were 450 down your end on just 4 rows of terracing there must have been double that amount our end (on 18 rows of terracing!) at least! Then add the 200 sitting down and 100 odd on the other side - it was easily 1650 - 1800 ish? Any thoughts?
