  1. No sending off, Ollie Deadman came off with a hamstring injury and we didn't have a third sub. Thanks for the clarification regarding dissent and foul and abusive language. As you say it must have been dissent. Saying that, I brought my six year old daughter with me last night so any swearing is foul and abusive in front of her.
  2. I think Liskeard will feel hard done by but Blazey did create some decent chances. The goal that separated the teams was an absolute wondergoal from about 30 yards, unstoppable. The referee issued several cards for foul and abusive language and the poor linesman had to endure a hysterical outburst from a Liskeard fan after the game which was rather unpleasant but other than those incidents it was a good, competitive game of football.
  3. Great match report Paul. I fancied us to get something from today, with our 7/7 run of wins and good performances but it's fair to say that we were soundly beaten by Millbrook. In fact this is probably the worst that we've performed this season. Our usual high intensity pressing was just AWOL, the shape didn't look right and we struggled to create clear cut chances. We gave the ball away far too often and gifted Millbrook a comfortable win. One or two players really struggled to impose themselves; I'm not certain if they're tired or we just had an off day. I thought Stone, Rendle and Howe had reasonable games (even if Stone did give away the penalty), and I didn't think Chapman could have done much about any of the goals.
  4. Well done to Bodmin, it's definitely good to have Cornish clubs progress in national competition, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. If Cornwall has a flagship club it is undoubtedly Truro, four leagues up and in the first round of the FA Cup. Perhaps if Bodmin were to show real ambition and take a promotion they could join Truro as a flagship club?
  5. Great footage Paul. Good to get Joe Stone's goal on video, nice work.
  6. Bodmin Town and Leeds United

    It's official: he's an embarrassment to his own club.
  7. Another powerful performance from St Blazey. We were missing some important players today (Eaton, Johnson and Yeoman with Paddy West on the bench with a tight hamstring) but had enough to see off Dobwalls with a makeshift midfield. Perryman scored undoubtedly the goal of the game, beating the Dobwalls right fullback for pace, cutting inside and striking an unstoppable screamer from the edge of the area into the top corner, just clipping the crossbar on the way in. Dan Bennett was sent off midway through the first half for... I have no idea what it was for. Looked like he won the ball, maybe he subsequently swung a foot out. St Blazey kept Dobwalls comfortably at arms length throughout the first half, reducing them to pot shots from outside the area and leaving Chapman with nothing to do but collect crosses. Second half, kicking uphill with ten men resulted in a far more defensive performance but Dobwalls offered little. Chapman made a few decent saves and a floated effort brushed the post but St Blazey defended well and Dobwalls never looked like getting back into the game.
  8. They're not out yet, they could still qualify for the Europa league. They scraped a 1 - 0 win away at CSKA Moscow earlier in the group, you'd fancy them with home advantage to get a result.
  9. Spurs (autocorrect to Spots...) definitely see this as a point gained, whereas the Arsenal fans I've spoken to all agree that it's two points dropped.
  10. Never understood this 4th place trophy thing. Under Wenger, Arsenal have finished: 1st - 3 times 2nd - 6 times 3rd - 5 times 4th - 6 times They've finished second as often as fourth. They should rename the "Fourth place trophy" to the "top four trophy". Or the "Ahead of Spurs" trophy.
