    ALL OFF! - Saturday 15 February 2020

    I'm certainly not an "FA man" but was just trying to explain the reason why the end of season date is forced upon Leagues; I don't agree that it's really necessary for all NLS Leagues to finish on the same date as those at Wembly will have to start at Step 1 and work down to Step 7. It's a complicated exercise but they've given themselves plenty of time to sort it out. ps. It's a SWPL thread, so I made the assumption you might have thought it was something which the League could change.

    North petherwin now also off, we moved it to 3g but launceston college cancelled us quite rightly on safety reasons. Bit gutted as we wanted to play after not fielding a side last week and wanted to prove to the league and ourselves that it was a 1off week. We will fight on, whatever it takes Cheers all

    It seems the F.A want plenty of time to do everything but the actual playing of football must be squeezed into the tightest of schedules.

    We're stuck with this weather forever until Trump sends us all into oblivion so most leagues need to start earlier (late July / early August) instead of endless meaningless pre-season friendlies and more use should be made of playing league and cup games on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays from then until the evenings pull in.

    WE'RE ALL DOOMED CAPTAIN MAINWARING ! WE'RE ALL DOOMED !!! This thread has run its course, lets not pre-judge Falmouths or St Blazeys ability to create a safe enviroment based on past experiences or we will end up debating every game that St Blazey play. With 9 x red cards 48 x yellow and 7 x sin bin, there can be no doubt that Blazey have their behavioural problems and it's down to them to sort it out, one thing for sure is that their demise will not be helped by pre-judging them on this forum before every game they play.

    Just felt like a way of heading off the "it's always the same ground" argument, and would have guaranteed the show piece of the Cornwall FA season being shared around. Chance for smaller clubs like Sticker and Callington to be rewarded for spending time and money improving their grounds and facilities. Year or so to plan organisation and any extra entertainment on the day. Only a thought.

    Yes the kick out should have been red carded. I keep saying the same thing - keep the goal line tech, keep the on pitch officials but get rid of VAR. Also, I would like to see more players booked for dissent. The amount of time players surround the referee and he has to suffer 'in the face' outrage, amounts to blatant intimidation and at times must come close to assault by threatening behaviour. Officials should not have to tolerate this sort of attack. Lets face it, if players are booked more frequently for dissent - another yellow for a foul will result in red cards. So, booking for dissent more frequently could well result in less intimidation of officials and therefore a more peaceable game. Hopefully.

    The reality is...no-one can beat the weather! Force one game on and potentially lose the the next one, two, or sometimes three. Also severe damage can run into a couple of thousand to put right at the end of the season - who pays for that(?) Exactly.

    Total common sense applied, saturated at the moment, had 9 holes bout a month ago and it was sodden, above your golf shoes in places! Trousers were lagged in mud and the rain we’ve had since then has been unreal!! Just listen to experts like Bakes who knows when a pitch is fit to play on!! Steve has ran leagues pretty well for years so it’s in good hands! Just had a thought about the teams with lights and the home games they’ve got left, might be worth resting the pitches now for another week or so then get some midweek games in utilising the clubs with floodlights in March/April when the surfaces have recovered somewhat!? Still be done by the end of April would have thought if the clubs with lights pencilled in a game a week or fortnight. Just a little list of St.Piran league clubs with lights and the home games they got left to play. EAST St.Austell.....4 Launceston..6 Saltash Utd..6 Saltash Boro.3 Torpoint........7 Millbrook.....8 Sticker..........6 Liskeard........8 Callington.....9 Wadebridge..7 WEST Penryn........4 Falmouth....4 Hayle..........2 Helston......3 Wendron....8 Mousehole..8

    The taker passed the ball short and when receiving it back was in an offside position (near to the goal line than the ball and the second last defender) JUST! So the direction of the ball doesn’t matter, just the position of the player when ball is played. It wasn’t from the corner it was the pass back to the taker before the cross. By the way I’m a Wolves fan! And believe that this drawing line rubbish is killing the game for everyone.

    Be prepared for 3 games a week

    Haven’t looked across the leagues but teams already fixtured in the SWPL east to play a Saturday then a Sunday. FA need to extend the season as it’s dangerous. Players will get injured. At grass roots level do teams need to be playing 40+ games with cups. Would it be the end of the world if leagues like the SWPL were 18 teams. Just reducing it by 2 teams could theoretically free up a month of Saturday’s for the inevitable games that need to be caught up on. Lots of players will not be relishing playing 3 times a week for a month with family and work.

    Hollywell & Cubert 1 Losty 6 Atrocious conditions and 1-1 at Half Time with the hosts the better side. Against the wind in the second half we played much better and eventually ran out 6-1 winners. Both teams and Ref Aidan deserve much credit for playing the game in the right manner and having a common sense approach to difficult conditions and being fully committed but never over zealous. A big thanks to H&C for their hospitality back at their pub and the best of luck for the remainder of the season. Cheers Bill.

    All finals should be played on the "Wembley of the West" Bickland Park. There is no better ground for watching a match and retaining an atmosphere. Not very central but neither is Wembley!

    All games now off. If this happened in St Piran then: 1. I wasn't aware of it and should have been. 2. Any communication is to come from the club secretary or the designated team secretary NOT the team manager. 3. As postponements are a league matter if there is a disagreement the first point of contact is me not the CCFA. If deemed necessary I would then arrange a second inspection with the relevant parties.

    County Cups thoughts!

    I voted to keep the Senior Cup as it is. What's affecting things at the moment that's so bad, meaning a change is being considered? The saying goes, if nothing is broken, why change it?

    County Cups thoughts!

    The introduction of an "Intermediate Cup" would give more teams the chance to play in a County Cup competition and also have a longer cup-run against more appropriate opposition. Too many teams have no realistic chance of winning under the current set-up but entry is compulsory under FA rules.

    Well done Steve, seems common sense. Been lugging stuff from the garage to the storage unit all afternoon and absolutely wet through and freezing!! And I usually like to be cold! It was horrible, did think a few times about the footballers meant to be playing tomorrow!! The wind is a joke anyway, nothing ruins a game more! Much rather see a nice midweek game in April 👍⚽️

    With a bit of luck Parkway make the last four. If they do, depending on the date, I might make my way up from Truro for that one. Bruegel, I had indeed read your post above. In your post you used the word 'apparently'. I took that as you weren't 100% sure and didn't have a source. But instead got the information off of someone else. Apologies if I misread that one. Older, stating the obvious there. If you knew me, you'd know I can be stupid, but not that stupid! 😉😂

    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.

    social media etc.

    Following the recent events at Manchester City where a player posted a cartoon to a fellow player and was fined and the ex player who had to apologise for a twitter comment he posted about Liverpool fans , what goes through the mind of people to broadcast these things to the world . If you have an " in " joke with a close colleague why do you have to post it on social media for the world to see knowing full well ( if you got a brain ) that the content could be offensive to someone other than the recipient ? Is it an ego thing . I worked in an environment where colleagues would constantly rib each other with remarks that were a means of relieving tension and nobody took offense but these remarks were kept in house and no offence was taken . Nobody would dream of saying this in earshot of the public and they certainly wouldn't be posted on a media site , but in modern society it seems that you must let the world share it . Perhaps I'm ancient and was brought up in a generation of different standards and manners and that's why I struggle to understand modern life . As for the recent incidents of racial abuse , again I struggle to understand firstly how anyone could abuse anyone of a different colour , race , religion etc. and secondly so dim as to do it in front of cameras broadcasting to millions of people round the world . It really puts this country to shame .

    ALL OFF! - Saturday 15 February 2020

    What worries me is not so much the 3 games a week scenario - it’s happened before and to a degree is part of being a winter sport, last season from memory a lot of clubs were finished early. Rather that teams have between 12 and 18 fixtures left to play and every pitch is sodden - clubs will be under pressure to play and officials will want to be seen to getting games on - the net result will be playing on already damaged pitches which normally would be too wet - the consequences will be serious injuries and playing surfaces that a not fit for purpose - so when 3 games are required the pitches won’t be up to it - again increasing the risk of injury. I am sure very club has players who have been badly injured by playing on unfit surfaces. There are mid week fixtures this week and even next weekend that without any more rain and with sunny days will still be too sodden but the games will go ahead. Perhaps a weeks holding off of games to give the ground time to recover and the grounds staff time to work their magic may be a short term loss but get us all through the remainder of the season safely??

    Newquay Clubhouse hit by storm CIrra

    Newquay Football clubhouse has sustained considerable damage to their club house roof and if Western flat roofing had not provided help in securing the roof we would be looking at a major loss. Many thanks to WFR for their prompt action.

    No, no and no! I've watched a few games this season that were nothing short of a farce. Unable to keep their feet, 90% mis-hit passes, and very lucky not too have had broken legs. Spectacle, no... farcical, enjoyable, no... rubbish...got the game on...YEAH!

    Does this mean John won’t be taking up the whistle anymore on a Saturday? if so real shame he was good enough to go higher. Great understanding for the game. Very good when I’ve seen him this year.

    What would people's opinion be for the Cornwall FA to announce the venue for finals days for the next two/three years in advance ( as per the Champions League). If a club reaches the final and it is played at their ground, then so be it.

    As I previously said we’ve been struggling for a side since the season has started, different side each week. St Dominick are far from world beaters. Full squad we would 100 percent give them a game without a doubt. Had a couple players playing on Saturday that have never played 11 a side before but we keep going to fulfil over fixtures
