    I have, but it’s a rivalry game so both clubs think that it would be more appropriate to have a neutral official as it complicates things. Managing the side while officiating in such a vital fixture doesn’t sit well with me.
     
    i have also offered to officiate another game if ours is, indeed, called off. So don’t worry about me - I’ll be involved in Football one way or another on a Saturday

    Unfortunately I don't live in Brighton, but was working there for a couple of days. Home is Basingstoke, and if there are indeed bright lights there, I've yet to find them!

    You’ll be well placed for a stroll up the road to Lewes next Saturday then. You could even put up the T.I.S.A. tribe for the night and show them the bright lights of Brighton!

    Distractions older - you either like playing football or you don't.
    As for televised football - the lower leagues and Scottish games are good to watch. The Premier league is just a stage for those who bask in their own egos. Cheaters (divers) anger merchants who curse the officials, and glamour, hype and tripe - interspersed with advertisements for gambling.
    Distractions - no sir. If you love football - you will play football.

    Buy an umbrella, or maybe a coat, that’s what the spectators have to do and they’re not fit young athletes!

    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‼️

    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‼️

    Perhaps the lack of Queens English eminating from the home dugout area, is reflected in the lack of support from fans who find it offensive.
    That explanation was offered to us by an EX Bodmin fan, who did not want to be associated with such language, and now reluctantly watches his football elsewhere !

    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.

    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.

    Bruegel the Elder reacted to Keith B in A bit of advice   
    Ball tends to bounce much more on 3G pitches. Watched a game in Scotland whilst on holiday recently - Div 2 match Annan Athletic v Cowdenbeath. Yes I know, but it was an easy walk from where we were staying. Good game actually - well fought by both sides (failed to see why Cowdenbeath are bottom of that league) and the game was much faster on this pitch. Both teams controlled the ball pretty well and it made for an enjoyable game. Annan won 1-0 incase you're wondering - you're probably not.
    All that said, I still prefer to see it played on grass. Probably cos I'm an old git !

    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.

    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!

    Bruegel the Elder reacted to Moonraker1969 in Sticker 2 Helston 2   
    Went along to Burngullow Park last night and was treated to a great game full of talking points. Chances, soft penalty scored, definite penalty not given, two sides playing at a real athletic pace, sprinkled with some quality, two fabulous goals, one from each side, a good crowd, and a few iffy referring decisions.. The whole together made for a good evenings football.
    Before the kick off having seen both sides a number of times this season I felt Helston would win this game.  However the narrow Sticker 1-0 defeat to Bodmin suggested they are gradually growing into the Peninsular Premiership and should not be taken lightly.
    Inside the first ten or so minutes Sticker could have been 4-0 up but for some good keeping and wayward finishing. Time and again their frontline pace ripped the Helston defence open and their strikers one on one against Barry Wyatt.. Helston found their shape though and started creating chances of their own. It was quite an end to end encounter and Matty Buchan had a superb first half for Helston, his srength and pace to win balls that were often 70/30 against him, tremendous to watch. 
    The first Helston goal on 33 minutes was a deflected Buchan shot cutting in from wide left inside the area and it moved the games momentum in Helstons favour. Three minutes later and Helston, pressing their advantage scored a  second goal which was was special. Kirk Davis attacking at pace down the right moved the ball inside to Dan Stilwell who  from around the edge of the area planted a cracking bending shot past keeper Blatchford. No blame on Blatchford as few keepers would have got near to that effort. 2-0 half time but with better finishing it could easily have been Sticker well out in the lead at the break.
    Seven minutes into the second half and what looked to me to be a very soft penalty, given I believe by the linesman, gave Sticker their way back and Jack Bowyer sent Barry Wyatt the wrong way. At 2-1 it was Stickers turn to press and make the most of their moment and five minutes later they were level with a rocket from Frank McAvoy. Similar distance to Stidwells earlier effort, but no bend on this one, just raw pace and into the top corner. Fantastic strike.
    As the game progressed both teams had chances, but Sticker had a massive shout for a second penalty. To me this one was nailed on and Helston had got away with one. However as said I thought the first Penalty was soft so perhaps it had evened itself out.
    Both sides had more chances as the game continued end to end at a fair old pace with a few hefty challenges and a few yellow cards to match them. The last ten-fifteen minutes Helston had the greater possession and chances but even with a string of consecutive corners they could not regain the lead against a determined Sticker.
    A £5.00 note well spent. A draw I feel the right result. As an observation, with so much pace and desire to get forward from Helston, I felt they missed the game craft and technical know how of suspended Charlie Young in the middle tonight. His ability to play balls around corners, in between fullbacks and behind defences I feel has been a big part of Helstons improvement since he arrived from Porthleven. Clever player.
