German footy match

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42301858 Didn't the groundsman have a tape measure? :- " Snow was cleared off the pitch before the delayed kick-off and red lines were painted - but the penalty spot was seemingly forgotten. So when Kampka awarded a penalty to Cologne, and neither he nor the ...

Re: Dr Jim's Grotto Ratings

I'm not that interested in other teams, just how the Shots perform. The problem I have is for example 2 of our better players Jake and Manny are not starting games when they should be. I wish that I could look back at the after-match comments from the five games prior to yesterday and read about 't...

Re: Match Day Thread vs HALIFAX

Lewis Ward, conceded 2 in 6 games. Jake Cole conceded 9 in last 6 games. Gifting the opposition a goal under no pressure whatsoever Lewis Ward 1 Jake Cole 0 Stats like these mean nothing I would suggest that the fact he felt the need to rush out of his area to clear a through ball before their forw...

Re: Dr Jim's Grotto Ratings

No one is playing consistently in this league this season. It's now December and six points separate the top seven teams, we've had who-knows-how-many different teams topping the league at various points this season. Frankly, if the players in our squad could perform to their potential consistently...

Re: Match Day Thread vs HALIFAX

do we know what he's done?? Waiting for a scan. Looks like a nasty knee injury. Won’t probably play for us again. We need to look for a replacement. Shame as he had something special and I would have been more than happy if he’d of been signed up. Good luck for the future Fabian. aye heard he lande...

From their forum :- http://www.theshaymen.net/ipb/index.php ... ot/&page=1
They're as excited (stunned) as we are disappointed (dismayed) at our relative teams performance.

Re: Match Day Thread vs HALIFAX

With that inswinging ball, did Sam Johnstone not carry it over the line ? Mr Bramall seemed to get so many decisions wrong. Feeling sorry for Lewis Ward as really two keeper errors should have made it a 1-1 draw. Lewis often had no outlet and he has contributed big time to our last unbeaten run and...

Re: Pitch & Weather

Don’t worry Mr Birdman. At least you use the proper old fashioned scale . I bet today’s young whipper snappers don’t even know how to convert F to C. Indeed. I still use lbs and ounces, feet and inches. Even now I still occasionally look at prices and convert them back to pre decimal times (ie Mars...

Did it really need water ?


The purpose of watering is I believe, to help the ball move quicker after a pass. It's worked most of the season (and indeed last) but today we didn't utilise the pitch as we normally do.

Re: Match Day Thread vs HALIFAX

A poor performance. Too many players off their game, not controlling the ball and/or getting easily outfought in individual situations. Not helped of course by having no recognised forwards available. I'll give Halifax their due, this wasn't imo a smash and grab affair. They seemed to win so many hi...
