Highlights

Post by Damien » Sat Aug 11, 2018 10:19 pm

Watching the highlights I'm in agreement with SMc. Two ridiculous decisions robbed us of a point at least. Do we really seem to get more crap refs than other teams, or is that just Perception? Is it because we don't seem to for want of a better word... scare refs. Not that good and not very lucky is a lethal combination too.

All football fans, of all clubs, are quick to jump on bad refereeing....but only when their team loses.

On the basis of yesterday's pen Matt Smith would win 2/3 pens every game.crap refs are par for the course it seems along with ffp.

I wasn't at the game but the mention of time wasting resonates with me. Surely refs can get on top of this? Even if they add on the correct amount of time, it's at the fag-end of the game when the losing team thump the ball upfield in desperation. It's earlier in the game where the damage is done by breaking up the other team's rhythm.
Then again what do you do about the practice of taking the ball to the corner flag and holding it there.....legal but not in the spirit of the game.

True. But in the modern game you seem to have to "play the ref" so to speak. I get the feeling that we are a bit slow at realising this. Winning by any means seems the fashion now... and we may have to start doing it soon too. Sad reality really. Of course go three up... and it's all irrelevant :wink:

As someone on here said the other day, any player going
down with a head injury should have to leave the field for 15 minutes for a concussion test. Then again, I suppose they'd feign injury in some other part of their body,

That's a great idea actually...how about a sin bin type thing, if the ref thinks a player is feigning any injury they leave the pitch for say ten mins, no subs and then back on again.

It is pathetic BG, and boils my piss. It's one of the main reasons I don't watch football other than Rangers when I can. Whilst not ever remembering a true "Corinthian" spirit in my time... this attitude today seems to be an accepted part of the game. It's becoming very prevalent in this league as teams do anything to get out of it and onto the riches, or at least clinging on like those in the Prem. Of course I'll be completely hypocritical(something I detest in any other aspect of my life) - and say that if it helped us win some games... I'd grudgingly welcome it. Falling in love with a football team makes you do things you'd not normally do. Easy for me to say as I wouldn't have to watch it every week. Be interested to know what regular attendees think though. "Beautiful game" my arse :Rant over :)

I'm both old and old fashioned so I don't want to see my team cheating. I don't think we indulge in the dark arts like many sides apart from the aforementioned sticking the ball against the corner flag. That said I wouldn't mind us having a few hard men - we are a soft touch at the moment. It's not a shrinking violets' game.

Macca, Sean Derry, Clint Hill, Danny Shittu and Mark Dennis - wouldn't be pretty, but you wouldn't want to venture past the centre circle too often with them waiting for you in the other half.

We definitely lacked someone getting the team going once we went behind. I know that leaders don’t have to be shouting all the time but we seemed awfully quiet and timid out there in the second half.
