  1. SWPL - Saturday November 18th 2017

    That’s very honest of you bighairydave, thank you. However also desperately disappointing!
  2. I am impressed, well done Parkway, there is still some honour in the game. Looking at the two results, I guess you’re not bad players either❗️
  3. SWPL - Saturday November 18th 2017

    We have loads of referees as members of this forum, I can only recall one: D_B who has stated that he will not tolerate “Foul and Abusive language” and will (and does) show the mandatory red card. He recently reported that he advises teams in advance and now rarely has any abuse. His reputation clearly goes before him, although I guess it doesn’t make him popular. Do any other of our Referees feel brave enough to follow this example? Or do you fear your marks and reputation amongst players (yes O.K. we all love to be loved). Could some of you come on here and tell us why you don’t enforce this particular LAW when you seem to have no problem with most of the others? Is it that you don’t feel supported by the C.C.F.A., or don’t fancy being beaten up by rabid louts (sorry, I meant footballers). Nobody would blame you, but we would like to understand the reasons for selective rule enforcement.
  4. NLS - Sat Nov 18th 2017

    This is the sort of ridiculous fixture that can cost a team, at this level, promotion or the title. Big Al would be disgusted with the fixture authorities, and I could break a long, long habit by agreeing with him‼️
  5. SWPL - Saturday November 18th 2017

    There are many places Dave where it is neither as prolific or at such a high volume. Again lt is one thing to have ill disciplined players, quite another to have it running through the Club from top to bottom. One day (maybe not in my lifetime) the referees will get a grip on it, possibly with the support of Committees, Leagues and Football Associations. I’m not holding my breath though, for fear of cutting my lifetime even shorter‼️
  6. SWPL - Saturday November 18th 2017

    Obviously he was the one who wasn’t one of you two, or a player or wearing a Stoke Gabriel scarf. That’s got to narrow it down.
  7. Senior football facility's

    Ambulances do indeed have their own stretchers, however on a Saturday afternoon they can be two or three hours away. The facilities for injured players are a joke. All teams should at least have space blankets available (they cost less than a fiver) or you could be adding pneumonia to the problem. It’s one thing requiring a firstaider to be present, quite another to provide them with the kit they need to keep players safe.
  8. SWPL - Friday 17th November 2017

    St. Blazey; circa 150, best turnout of the season.
  9. You could be right Mr. L, if so, I apologise. I missed the end of the game so was relying on (possibly erroneous) reports.
  10. I believe that there was a sending off Mr. Laws, although I’m not certain if it was for foul and abusive language. Please do check these things before you pronounce your judgement! Thank you for the info rob, I don’t get up that way much nowadays. Shame, I always had a lot of time for him both as a manager and as a gentleman.
  11. Any chance of congratulations from Leeds? Defied all but one (noted Bobjfh) of the predictions. Well done the Green & Blacks.
  12. Pitch is looking really good again, well done to the Paul’s and their little band of helpers. I might wander down for this one if I can find my winter coat and gloves. Can always buy a scarf when I get there! Best of luck Blazey, I suspect you’ll need it against McQ’s boys.

    What, I wonder, is the difference between a moan and an observation?
  14. Anyone would think that teams (or anybody else, for that matter) cared what you think, anybody else you have a pat on the head for?
  15. NLS - Saturday 11th November 2017

    Pargyle, Exeter, Torquay could all use a bit of this sort of quality. The perennial problem of Conference teams, produce good players, lose them, fail to produce them and sink into oblivion. Sods 3rd law!
  16. Trelawny League - Saturday November 11th 2017

    Before anybody calls off a game today, checkout the weather forecast. If your allotted pitch is playable, I reckon that a Referee might magically become available because some of those exposed or poorly draining pitches just might not make it.
  17. Trelawny League - Saturday November 11th 2017

    If you can’t make time on a Saturday to do the course, how are you going to find time to do any refereeing? Particularly the mandatory games you need under your belt before you can qualify and register!
  18. SWPL - Wednesday Nov 8th 2017

    ❓❓❓❓❓❓Wellpassedit by name, well past it by nature❗️ All of us have had our mind go blank at some point❗️ Frankly I couldn’t agree more❗️
  19. SWPL - Wednesday Nov 8th 2017

    What made you think that he was referring to you BIG AL?
  20. Ban the International break

    It's about time that the international break was stopped for Premier and Championship leagues and their equivalents elsewhere. All clubs that field international players have a big enough squad to put a team on the pitch while their internationals are playing for their countries. It would encourage clubs to develop more home grown players and produce a more level "playing field" for a few weekends through the season. Come on F.I.F.A. make the game a bit more interesting!
  21. Sticker 2 Helston 2

    An interesting and well written match report. I leave it to others to judge it’s accuracy as I wasn’t there, but certainly a good read.
  22. Cornwall Junior Cup 3rd Round draw 25/11/17

    Obviously this is a very, very worrying development. Is being drunk in charge of a set of studs as dangerous as being drunk in charge of a bicycle for example? Should all Referees be issued with breathalysers⁉️
  23. Just one thing Paul, I don’t know about the picture of that miserable looking bloke on the gate, on the home page. You’re supposed to be encouraging folk through the gate, not putting them off 🤡❗️
  24. St Blazey seem to be going places both on and off the pitch, if there was a prize for best website in the league you would have to be right up there for it Paul.
  25. Mabe FC Fold

    Hmm, that’s an awful lot of space to take up with double (very, very long) quotes followed by duplicate comments! Changing your name all the time does tend to cause confusion, just ask M.K. Dons, no longer Wombles it seems! I wonder what happened to footballlegends 1-6?
