  1. I'm no expert but i think it is more to do with your own computer history. Mine comes up with music clips relating to my youtube searches - lots of Dylan, can't argue with that. Your Lily Allen fetish has caught up with you !! Big brother is most definitely watching.
  2. My guess would be 60/70 at Falmouth and 100+ at Bodmin - but what do i know? Perhaps Mr Bray can confirm when he gets up or back from golf !
  3. Brilliantly captured Willow, thanks. I'm guessing the clips wont get too many views in Newquay as the G reflect on what might have been. All part of this wonderful game of ours though.
  4. St Minver 3 - 2 Godolphin Atlantic Now, it's only my opinion but I thought this was a much better semi-final. It was a fast flowing game from the start, played mostly on the ground, better ball control from the players and plenty of incidents to keep things interesting. St Minver looked the sharper side and went a goal up after 15 minutes. Godolphin had plenty of the play however but seemed lacking once they got into the penalty area. In three minutes of added first half time Godolphin were awarded a penalty which was calmly driven home. I missed the early second half goal for Saints (only one barman on duty in the clubhouse delaying my re-appearance) but apparently it was an og due to a defensive mix up. St Minver's third was also a bit fortunate, it looked like a goal keeping miscalculation shall we say from where I was. Godolphin raised their game and eventually pulled a goal back.and it was a fairly frantic 7 minutes of added time (presumably for the never ending substitutions that are becoming part of the game now) as they tried valiantly to take the match to extra time, but it wasn't to be. One Godolphin player sent off in the dying minutes but it was generally a well tempered but hard fought encounter. I thoroughly enjoyed it, a fair result I thought but Godolphin did themselves proud.
  5. I have to agree with Ballsax, it was a pretty dire match, pleased with the result though - two Duchy sides in the final again.. High balls, long balls, no shots and the game didn't liven up until the last 15 minutes after Craig Coad had headed home neatly to put St Stephen ahead. Overall I thought Pendeen looked slightly better on the night, certainly had more bite but they didn't look like scoring. Hopefully tomorrow night's other semi at Bodmin will be better and i'm sure St Stephen will have much more to offer in the final.
  6. Duchy League Cup Qtr Final Calstock 1 - 4 St Merryn Excellent effort from Calstock members to get the pitch fit to play on (just) and thanks to referee Pete Sowden for allowing the match to go ahead. This game was definitely not as one sided as the score suggest, Division Three side Calstock couldn't find the net often enough on the day despite creating several chances. Both sides did well under difficult conditions and second division St Merryn will fancy their chances of getting to the final at least. The visitors first half goals came from Michael Shearer and Lewis Canfield. Kevin Allen put them 3 nil up after the break and Canfield grabbed another later on. Ben Williams replied for Calstock. Nice pint after in the Tamar Inn (but a bit pricey !!)
  7. As of 11am, Full Time showing the following postponements KO Cup matches at Foxhole & Gerrans Lge Cup at Southgate Reserves Cup at North Petherwin & St Stephen Lge matches at St Columb & Pensilva Bound to be more i suspect - any news on Calstock & St Cleer would be welcomed. Thanks As always, it would be good to know what games are definitely ON
  8. Premier division - LC Phoenix 5 - 1 Saltash Utd Another three points in the bag for league leaders Phoenix to keep a little pressure on title favourites St Minver whose fixtures are building up as they are still involved in both the Junior & Knock Out Cups. Saltash didn't really perform today and lady luck didn't shine on them either. A freakish own goal in the opening minutes got them off to a bad start and on the half hour they conceded the sort of penalty that will be waved away on another day.. A cracking 40 yard drive possibly, from Kevin Hatch, put Phoenix 3 nil up at the break. Ten minutes into the second period it was 4 nil , a nicely worked move ending with a Matt Stainer header maybe, and game over but the visitors kept their spirits and deservedly pulled one back. A second penalty late on took the score to a slightly flattering 5 - 1. Good entertaining game on a bobbly pitch, no hassle, Richard Butter in complete control.
  9. Also one Knock Out Cup match scheduled - Foxhole Stars v Torpoint Athletic 2pm
  10. I'm liking that Dave, other divisions coming ?
  11. Duchy League Cup - Rame Peninsula 4 - 5 Pensilva Fairly frantic, end to end stuff in this typical cup tie and very little to choose between the sides, Rame sitting third in Division Four and Pens mid table in Three. The home side created the best chances early on and went a goal up after 30 minutes. Five minutes later the visitors had taken the lead and so it was 2-1 at the break. Ten minutes into the second half Pensilva extended their lead and probably should have done more to maintain it but then a ten minutes spell, with some really slack defending, saw the advantage swing back to Rame 4 - 3. With five minutes remaining Pensilva pulled back level and in the dying stages earned themselves a penalty which was driven home to give them the win. For over an hour there was hardly a disputed decision thanks to Alan Shaw's usual, sensible refereeing but the game got a little fractious after Rame took the lead and an entertaining afternoon was spoiled for me by players being called the 'c' word from the touchline - both clubs guilty. Like many others, I don't need to be hearing that on a Saturday afternoon, really disappointed that it wasn't punished.
  12. Torpoint 3 - 6 St Minver Quite an afternoon. I was delighted to see that the game was on and pleased to find the pitch in perfectly playable condition at kick off, although I gather the Torpoint club (in typical Senior fashion) weren't keen to actually play on it. A quick cuppa before kick off - only warm unfortunately - could do better ! The home side had the bulk of the play in the first 20 minutes but didn't manage to break the saints defence. The visitors looked sharper on the break and went a goal up from the penalty spot after 25 minutes - Torpoint's 'keeper looked a tad fortunate to stay on the pitch from where i was standing (but i don't really understand the law these days) Within ten minutes St Minver had deservedly gone 3-nil up but Torpoint kept battling and went into the break at 3-1 down but still well in the game. The rain had arrived just before half time and the surface got very slippery. Credit to both sides for their second half performances in atrocious conditions (and to Paul Cackett for keeping the game going), Torpoint never gave up and St Minver didn't sit back on their lead and even went 4-1 up. Torpoint then pulled two goals back and anything could have happened in the last ten minutes as the heavy rain seriously affected play. As Torpoint gave their all to get level St Minver found the space to grab a couple of late goals to put the tie out of reach. The pint was fine afterwards so overall enjoyed my trip to the Mill.

  14. Quarter Final 2pm TORPOINT v ST MINVER With very little football on in the area there could be a good crowd for this one if it survives. If anyone out there knows the latest please reply.
  15. I stand corrected !! Another lovely ambiguously worded rule. I guess the situation hasn't been helped in recent seasons by clubs claiming that unreasonably high signing on fees etc are owed when a player wishes to leave (even though the club made no effort to collect them at the time of signing.)
