  1. Past hour
  2. He didn’t get sent off for one reason and that’s because he plays for England. The top English players have always got away with more, Rooney, Gerrard, Neville, Ferdinand. The referees are not fit for purpose. How on earth Stuart Atwell is refereeing let alone at premier league level is beyond me. He’s the worst of the lot, and when you include, Taylor, Moss, Paulson, Atkinson in that list then that is some accolade. The referee last night was Anthony Taylor from Greater Manchester, I believe it was Chris Kavanagh as var, guess where he’s from??
  3. Today
  4. FACYC Latest. Outstanding Semi Final played last Friday evening. Norfolk 2 - 1 Essex. So it's a Sussex verses Norfolk final to be played at Sussex CFA Lancing on 25th April. Norfolk it their third successive Final i believe.
  5. We'll agree to disagree on the standard of officiating! 😉 Like I said, it is in some cases, not all. What I'm hoping for is that the officials get the help they need. That's meant in the nicest possible way. Because they, in particular the referees, are being made to look worse with the way VAR is being implemented.
  6. The Curnow family have played a number of times for St Just ie, Father and sons - Steve (the manager) and Neil and Andrew upon occasions when the Tinners have been short for some reason. Not often, but they have played together in past years. I remember on one occasion we were short and the sub (the only one) Tim George, was held up at work and didn't get at the game until just before half time. As soon as he arrived though, Steve Curnow came off. For a man in his late forties he hadn't done bad. Difficult to get off the ball - if he managed to get it. Sorry Steve no offence meant - full marks for stepping up to the plate !
  7. I think it's fair to say that referees do vary, what some will blow up for another doesn't. But we must remember that the officials have to have that 'discretionary power' because conditions and situations vary too. 'Poor officials' is a bit strong for me. It is a very difficult job and a referee has to have eyes in the back of his head (some refs might say 'if only') as well as keeping up with the game. You and I don't make the decisions Jacob - so, we will see what is decided in due course.
  8. Poor officials yes. Particularly those in front of the VAR monitor! As I’ve said before keep VAR, change the criteria, and give the screen to the match referee, either via a smart phone or a monitor at the pitch side (for the more optically challenged refs!).
  9. Absolutely terrible decision if it had been sent for review. Harry Maguire knew exactly what he was doing when aiming the kick out at the Chelsea player. He's very lucky there. And like I've also said before, I'm a United fan. The current way VAR is being implemented is absolutely awful and taking the enjoyment out of a game. We, the fans, are paying the price for the Premier Leagues and PGMOL's arrogance. It's wrong. And that's my point. There is far too much money at stake for decisions to be more often than not wrong, than right. I don't like knocking match officials where possible Keith. But the fact is, because of the way the game is going (for example, the speed of play), it is very difficult for them to get every decision right. Hence the need for some assistance in the form of technology and other forms of help. There's also no getting away from the fact there are some poor officials out there. Technology or no technology.
  10. The Maguire incident was reviewed. Details were displayed on the screens. All we saw from the 3 most controversial reviews was a very quick flash of the Giroud offside with the lines drawn, was there for maybe a second. “It’s not football anymore” will become a very popular chant if this farce isn’t binned.
  11. Roy Johns, Saltash 1949-51, Allen Johns 1965-onwards and onwards !
  12. The Falmouth Town Father & Son (s) Listing FIRST TEAM ONLY
  13. A few years ago when Prince Charles came down following the St Blazey floods it was far worse/deeper, with ducks swimming around on it. The first team played on it less than a week later and despite the groundsman’s concerns it hardly cut up at all.⚽️🦆 Of course may well be different this year depending on the ongoing weather situation.
  14. How about the pitch at St. Blazey surely that is out of bounds for the season.
  15. Wouldn't want to be a league fixtures sec at the minute in any league in the south west. I'm sure all clubs will be doing their best to make the right decisions at the time.
  16. Alan ,Mark and Stewart Lenton sure they played together in a friendly
  17. Don't have to of played together! That's a great stat though!
  18. Don’t know if Mark and Jack played together though -apart from anything else they both play(ed) the same position. Last season Phil and Sam Brown both played together for Camelford, against Exmouth and possibly a couple of cameos. I believe, Sam at 16 just starting his men’s senior football and Phil probably towards the end of his playing days.
  19. The commentator and the pundits gave the impression that it had been referred to VAR - so we have to assume that it was. Still don't like it Jacob. How did we arrive at a situation where the spectators don't know if it's a goal or not ? Spoils enjoyment of the game. That instant joy when your team has scored has been removed and that for me ruins watching a match. The only thing at stake is somebodies money Jacob. We shouldn't keep knocking our match officials, for me they do a very difficult job, very well.
  20. A third cup was mentioned in the opening post and will only come about if the Senior Cup becomes Step 5 & 6 only.
  21. Can anyone name any father and son combinations who played south western league/peninsula league? My two favourites... Al Watts and Martin Watts Jack Rapsey and Mark Rapsey Got any others?
  22. Unfortunately the poll at the top of this thread makes no mention of an intermediate cup, in fact there’s no detail at all. Perhaps it should be rerun with all the viable options available.
  23. I didn't see the incident in real time as I was out. However, having watched the replay, I can't understand how it wasn't given as a red card. Did the incident get reviewed to VAR? Like I've said previously, we need VAR. That is fact. It already needs a revamp though and really does need to be polished up. Whether people like it or not, our referees aren't good enough to get the tough decisions right every time. And the saying 'everyone makes mistakes' isn't good enough anymore. There is far too much at stake in the modern day. I agree when you say players should be booked for dissent. I think most, if not all, would also agree. However, I can't see the Premier League, FA or PGMOL (whoever is responsible) putting that in place. Quite simply because they don't have the balls to do it. I'd quite happily be proved wrong on that though.
  24. This isn’t what the working party have been discussing however. It’s whether you have a Step 5 & 6 only Senior Cup and if so then an Intermediate Cup.
