Discussion in 'Dulwich Hamlet FC' started by Pink Panther, Mar 2, 2018.
Oh fuck I forgot that bit. Hang on!
I wondered if McKimm could shed any light, but B.I.G assessment of the man is correct. He's a cunt.
I previously had no strong opinion of Tonbridge. Now they're on my list and I wish on them a plague of frogs and terrible results. Horrible, cheaty team with a cunt of a manager.
I'm far more frustrated with our wasteful finishing than any Tonbridge antics.
I thought Tomlin had a positive impact, linking particularly well with Nyren. Hope he can quickly get himself back to full match fitness and be an asset in the run-in.
Yes, whilst some of the Tonbridge antics were nauseating, and the referee should have dealt more firmly with them, that's not why we lost the game. So FWIW I accept McKimm's response, it's irrelevant in that context, they were there for the taking, we blew it, and realistically that's left us with too much ground to make up in terms of overhauling Billericay. I hasten to add I'm very pleased our team doesn't conduct itself like theirs, which does reflect very poorly on their manager.
I think the injuries to Tomlin have been the biggest single setback in our season. I think he appeared in 60 out of 67 matches last season, missing 7 games through suspension for two straight red cards. He must have barely played a dozen times this season, and in many of those games he's been striving to regain match fitness and not ready for a full 90 minutes.
At his best he offers a blend of guile and experience up front that is on another level to anyone else in the squad.
Another game where Dulwich were more offensive, created more goal scoring chances but went behind to a team who converted two of their limited chances. Our conversion ratio is not good. Tonbridge were well pleased with the result because they have a limited budget, small squad and even had to name McKimm as one of their substitutes. Will we finish second in the league or worse?
You can see their Cheaty Mccuntybollocks goalie trying to grab the ball after we scored, no doubt to inspect another 'split seam.'
Sour grapes much? Wow.
Not from me. Tonbridge deserved the win and played well, but to see the coaching staff colluding with the goalie to fake an injury was cheating, plain and simple.
Are you 100% sure that’s what they were doing?
Yep. I saw one of the Tonbridge guys sprint over to the goalie from behind the goal (in front of the Hamlet fans), whisper something in his ear, they both then smiled and moments later the goalie was hit by a mystery injury. This happened when Hamlet were piling on the pressure, so clearly they knew that a pointless bit of waiting around would take the wind out of their sales.
And, amazingly, the goalie was soon fully healed after the physio had run on and, well, done nothing. And, don't forget, this goalie already had form for wasting time and taking the piss (the line about the ball "splitting a seam" bring a prime example).
The daft thing is that he'd had a really good game and there was no need for him to resort to such underhand tactics. The twat.
I'd be interested in seeing what's being said on the Tonbridge forums (as I can see they've been looking here in numbers) but they choose to cower behind a 'membership only' gate. I did ask to join but never heard back.
I fully understand restricting people's ability to post before registering, but hiding a club's forum completely is not the greatest way to encourage discussion or get new fans involved.
Unless, they've got something to hide, of course.....
Why shouldn't he "grab the ball" after we scored? It's their kick-off, we can't take it for them. He's not obliged to hand our players the ball for their kick-off.
Because the late scoring team want to run back and get the ball on the centre spot and he - based on his previous conduct - would have wanted to hang on to the ball for as long as possible and perhaps examine it, at length, for more invisible 'split seams.'
Anyway, the ball was nowhere near him so he was hoping to take it off a Hamlet player for more time wasting.
I’ll tell you if you want
I'm registered but I haven't bothered logging in to read or argue the toss. I suspect it's a mirror image of the more hysterical comments on this thread, with gloating intensified by accusations of sour grapes and being bad losers.
Not really. Mostly moaning about why they can’t play that well against everyone, and comments along the lines of “yeah we were time wasting, but I’m sure they’d do the same in our position.”
