Have we ever won there?

We'd never beaten Forest Green Rovers at home before last weekend...

Thought I read that you sat in the East Stand? You are a strong opponent of Cornell why would you join in the enthusiastic reception Cornell received?

Are you picking a fight?

All defenders 'know' when a player is on or offside, unfortunately for them the Assistant is usually in the best position to make the actual better judgement.
Invariably the Assistant has 'got it wrong' when the defenders have cocked up.

I think you might find libel laws prevent public defamation .


There maybe evidence that you have already done that?

Just been talking to a few people in the know when hey Preston one of the guys gets an email TONIGHT saying NTFC is for sale and does he know anyone interested ....... Seems like we are desperate.

I thought that everyone had received that?

The linesman was not in a position to raise a flag at time of oppo pass. If he was those of us in line with the incident would not feel so inclined to disagree. Bit of a sweeping statement to suggest all players are cheats - no doubt some are and are tainted with that reputation. If I was a prof footballer I would not appreciate your comment!

According to the video, the AR looked as if he was in line with the second last defender.  The same video that can't tell if the player was or wasn't offside.
It's a sweeping statement but true.

The referee gave the goal as there was no flag! The linesman was caught out by being not up with play. Understandably given the convoluted transition of the ball. Several players appealed for offside of which Facey was one! Had we lost by that Reid goal would KC and others been so ‘magnanimous’?

The AR looked up with play to me on the video?
Players always appeal for offside, or any other decision, in the hope that it will influence the officials. 
Didn't you know that ALL players are cheats?

I know it's not the best standard but I have run the line and refereed a couple of games at Sunday morning level after my playing days were over. I know what a hard job it is don't worry about that but the inconsistency of decisions really frustrate me at times.

Which one was inconsistent, the AR got this one right didn't he?

What concerns me after watching the short highlights from Saturday is the amount of shots from the opposition where the player hasn't been closed down to prevent the efforts.
This has been a Cobblers problem for at least a season now and doesn't appear to have been addressed by any of the managerial incumbents.
If the opposition can't shoot, they can't score.

If JS takes us over , God help us

A slur on an individual without an immediate right of reply before he has had an opportunity to show?
Is this based on his comments/actions at/in the Sixfields social environment or within his business life, which if his wealth is anything to go by, he appears to have done/be doing something right?
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Forest Green Rovers - 13 Oct 18 on: October 15, 2018, 09:34:54 am
If Facey did admit that he played him on then fair enough I was wrong. However, from the amount of boos at half time it's fair to say the vast majority felt the same as me and others on here.

As always, there was only one person in the best position to make the decision, he did and was correct.

And Waters missed a sitter in the first half!

With Cornell's 'rush of blood', sometimes you are criticised if you do, or criticised if you don't.  At least he attempted something even if it didn't turn out as planned.  That's twice now he has made that decision and it has resulted in a goal however, he has also made that decision a number of other times this season and it has turned out alright, but we won't mention those.  Roll Eyes

I notice that the Offy site version didn't include the Waters miss.   Shocked
Good couple of attempts by Hoskins from the free kick and in open play.
Great assist from Turnbull for the first and watch him during the penalty area scramble after that... Grin

I don’t think so.  God some people are so miserable.  I am still bouncing after yesterday’s game.


Just asking the question, not stating it as fact.  There is a possibility.
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Forest Green Rovers - 13 Oct 18 on: October 14, 2018, 11:27:24 am
Hardly a pitch invasion.  30 or so true fans just expressing their joy.  Nowhere near any forest gump players.  All over in flash. 

'30 or so true fans' who have potentially cost the club some money?
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Disappearing Punters? on: October 13, 2018, 16:42:13 pm
Biggest home crowd of the season...

Poor McWilliams can’t seem to get a run of starts, Waters or Hoskins at RWB.

No start for our top scorer either, despite the midweek strike.

Sun is out though, up the Cobblers.

McWilliams was well off the pace last week.

Anyone else listening to it?
It's not TMS and is taking a bit of getting used to but got to give it a chance.
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Forest Green Rovers - 13 Oct 18 on: October 12, 2018, 12:23:31 pm
I agree with most of this - Van Veen is clearly more of a goal threat than Williams but Williams puts a real shift in. Also I don’t like it when Hoskins and VV are a partnership as for some reason Hoskins plays as the centre forward while VV drops off which completely isolated Sam.

It was noticeable on Tuesday the extra effort vV appeared to put in after he had scored, although he had dropped back into more of a number 10 role.
He effectively assisted himself for the goal, albeit he was winning the ball back after he had mis-controlled it.
