  1. The Hall for Cornwall is a facility that all of Cornwall can use though stadium for Cornwall is for 3 businesses!
  2. Trelawney League Cups Cancelled?

    Cue resignations from the league committee!!
  3. Offside Law

    The laws don’t help. It’s a ridiculous law to say that he’s not offside. Basically a forward should just stand offside all the time and hope it gets a nick off someone. They’ve not worded the law correctly in my opinion and didn’t figure for this kind of event. John Moss isn’t fit enough to referee the game. His inconsistencies are embarrassing. He’s guessed on the first one without knowing and the second one he’s seen it and then gone with the Lino
  4. Offside Law

    Can someone with any knowledge please explain how Harry Kane was not offside in yesterday’s game? The pass was intended for him therefore he’s offside and interfering with play. But the law states that because Lovren has deliberately made an attempt to play the ball its second phase!!! Seriously? so in that instance what would the Lino had done if the wall went to the keeper and he picked it up? the officials have a tough job because of the ridiculous laws that there are
  5. Offside Law

    It’s not about whether he touched the ball. It’s about intention to play it, in my opinion it’s a deflection. It’s a stupid law non the less. I can see why the penalty was given but I also wouldn’t have been surprised if he was booked for diving! a shite game overall for the officials
  6. Offside Law

    SAme laws of the game though isn’t it? I’m pretty sure that would be given offside in 99.9% of games as he’s the intended recipient of the ball and in an offside position!!
  7. Offside Law

    How close do you need to be to the ball? He’s gained an advantage by being in an offside position for a pass that’s intended for him. How is that not offside?? so. Did Lovren make a deliberate attempt at kicking the ball? Yes. Therefore there should be no difference in the law. I don’t get it
  8. Offside Law

    It’s either deliberate or accidental. There’s no in between. The ball is played to Kane. Regardless of any touch he’s offside in my opinion and should be given. More and more players are going to be standing in an offside position in the hope that he ball deflects off a defender to be played onside. Theyve made a rod for their own back with some of the officiating in that game! John Moss didn’t have a clue what was going on and guessed the decision.
  9. Offside Law

    Absolute ridiculous law. Kane has gained a massive advantage. The ball was intended for him therefore interfering with play. I’m sure 99% of the time he’s flagged for offside!! Any wonder the officials get so much shit when the laws are all about interpretation. So they’ve used the word ‘deliberate’ twice with two different outcomes
  10. There has been a fair few serious injuries in recent weeks. Anything to do with the conditions?
  11. Still don’t understand why any club would want to take promotion without a sustainable model behind them. IE: the club itself and not a team..... if that makes sense however, best of luck anyone who chooses to
  12. Tommy, your openess and honesty is somewhat refreshing. Its not often on this forum that you get a real answer that makes sense without bowing down to be politically correct! Nice one, and best of luck to Falmouth Town for the future. Still the biggest club in Cornwall for me.
  13. how good is the premiership

    Most clubs live for today not tomorrow
  14. Truro cricket club I presume was provided to provide a facility for the community as such and to keep a cricket club going. Truro city and Cornish Pirates are businesses who only have their own interests at heart - I don’t blame them for that - therefore why should the government and my taxes be subsidising their existence. Is a stadium for Cornwall going to provide any benefit for those in Liskeard, buds, launceston, pendeen? Not in the slightest. If Truro City get access to this potential new facility then it just goes to show that running a poor business model and ripping the sole out of a community football club can work long term
  15. how good is the premiership

    Most exciting yes. Best standard? Nowhere near it. The technical ability in Spain and Italy is far superior in my opinion. However, we are the league with the most money therefore they will always try to say it’s the best as a selling point
  16. So if a game is cancelled in December and rearranged in April you’re telling me that the income will be less. I’m not having that
  17. A game gets postponed so it will be played eventually and then the clubhouse will get used
  18. Premier League Football Contracts.

    £16 to watch Liverpool v Utd for me in 88!! I think but beginning of the 80’s was less then a fiver to stand on the kop
  19. NLS - Saturday 20th January 2018

    That’s not an asset though is it? The potential buyer is purchasing nothing bar a name. Next year is the big year as it’s going to be the first year that it’s actually going to cost someone something
  20. NLS - Saturday 20th January 2018

    There’s no investment because there’s nothing to invest in. What are Truro’s assets?
  21. Premier League Football Contracts.

    I’m not understanding why a footballers wage could go to the NHS!!! 2 different industries. We, as ‘customers’ of the game pay towards the running of these clubs, what they do with the money is up to them. What the worry for me would be what if we were all priced out of watching it on TV. Where’s the money going to come from then? However, with the worldwide appeal for the premier league not looking like going away for a while yet I can’t see it happening

    Managers don’t have time to use youth anymore. The top clubs will demand immediate success. What manager gets the chance to work with fringe players/youth players with the view to get them in the first team?

    My point is that you’ve paid to watch Liverpool. You don’t have a right to watch the best players. They have a squad that they’ll use. Unfortunately the FA Cup is now low on priorities through (imo) the fault of the FA

    Absolute rubbish. You’ve paid to watch Liverpool. You don’t have a right to watch the players you want to watch. The FA have ruined their own competition by selling out to tv and stretching the competition over 4 days, semi finals at Wembley. For the running of the club finishing higher in the premier league is more beneficial than an FA Cup win!!
