    St Darren reacted to isaac rosenberg in LWC Drinks Combination League Results and Senior Cup full 1st Round Results - Saturday 6th October 2018   
    This sad situation of cancelled games will become more frequent as a result if the F A's hamfisted interference in league structures, loathed all over the country, but especially in Cornwall. It is not lack of ambition, but economic reality of a culture where the 9 to 5 five day working week is no longer how the majority of young people sustain themselves. No supporter wants to see their club following Ludgvan from success to possible extinction as Penzance filch their players. Not surprised players follow the.money,: in Cornwall, there's not much if it around and people who would not get into Bristol pub teams behave like Ronaldo's agent. No good being sentimental about loyalty, because it only remains in exceptional clubmen like the Curnows. The solution is for Cornwall to secede fromc the English FA. The Senior Cup ?  Oh, get real ! In every other county, the county cup is a  midweek or end of season add-on. Watched Forest Green play Cinderford in a final in front of150 a while back....putting out their under 18s and charging a pound entry. Love the Combo League, despite dodginess of fixturing and loading up if teams with ringers, again due to daft money-driven "restraint of trade" nonsense imposed by FA to defeat common sense of one player, one club. A local league where lots if friends are made in familiar fixtures, a Cornish institution. About to he destroyed vy the FA. Why ? Because their structures are basesd on the demographic conditions in cities with extensive municipal pitches, artificial surfaces, floodlights and sponsors, players and fans who can afford the swingeing fines they impose. By contrast, they will decinate rural, village football. A survey of the "grass roots" established that 82% of public opinion saw the FA negatively. When it is time for revolution, reorganisation and withokdibg of all ubdaur taxes, why do my countrymen lie down and accept this parasitic organisation  which respects only FIFA ? FIFA !!!!...don't get me started !!!

    Think that’s a little harsh. Mr Pope may not be everyone’s cup of tea but I doubt that he’s spat at anyone. And I’d be surprised if Ryan did as well

    Correct it’s not in the spirit of the game but that’s about morals. You can’t blame though if you get a 0-0 defeat

    Accidental Handball??? How many hand balls are deliberate? Ridiculous wording for the law. As I also believe that a deliberate handball is a cautionable offence!!

    St Darren got a reaction from stevieb in Who would be a manager   
    If you want to be a manager you need to know loads of good players or be mates with. It’s no longer about being a big club, if that were the case sides like Falmouth, Newquay, Porthleven, Penzance would be regularly at the top. There are several clubs out there that rely on one person to do all of it, take them away and they lose a load of players! 
    The amount of phone calls that a manager had to make and even then there’s no guarantee of them turning up. Football has changed massively in the last 15-20 years. 
    A crazy job for anyone to undertake for no gain apart from a loss of hassle.

    I’m hugely disappointed that I never got a bet on Truro getting relegated this year. It’s as close to buying money as you can get!

    St Darren reacted to Tribute in referees decisions called into question on social media   
    At the end of the day , from dutchy to swpl, it’s a hobby for the refs . If you get paid expenses and £20 to £30 a game I don’t think you can complain. No one as far as I know has been forced to take up the whistle. Players get moaned and groaned at by supporters and bollocked by the manager for mistakes . If you make mistakes and have a bit of grief  take it on the chin and get on with it .

    No need to go off on one!i just said you don’t get paid for travelling to work. 
    It’s your choice to referee, you’re not made to do it.  You’re getting paid to do a job you want to do. Would you do it for free???
    I admire most who do it as they do it to give ensure a game of football is played.  But there are some that spoil it for others!!

    Masters came into a situation where he couldn’t lose following the Heaney debacle but he’s managed to alienate even more! He’s told so many stories and changed them so many times that he’s harder to believe than Heaney was. 
    It’s the end of Truro City. At least 3 years up in Torquay!!!
