Lives for Charking Picken
Ok, done. Urban 75 forum getting the credit - thank you everyone - Road Rage and I Fought the Law are the icing on the bicycle cake!
I thought the referee was quite fair and consistent myself. We were already in stoppage time when we equalised and he played at least 5 more minutes after that, most of which must have been added for timewasting as there weren't many other stoppages as I recall. He rightly ignored a couple of bogus attempts to win free kicks. The only time he really annoyed me was just after our equaliser when a counter attack was halted by their 10 making a meal of a challenge on the halfway line. On the whole I'd take that refereeing performance over most others.Another crap referee. Is there no timewasting rule at this level?
The buildup in the first half was painfully slow at times, We have two lightning quick wingers and Dylan and we were so slow in the buildup that they were able to park the bus. Give them their due, they were well organised and didn't really let us do this. Shamir didn't really seem at the races today.Thought ref was fine.
We were poor today - so slow. Only deserved a point at best with the late rally - 10 more mins we would have won it. Chippenham played ok and defended well but it’s 2 points dropped as they’re not a strong team.
Thought we left the subs far too late today - probably would have won it otherwise.
chapman probably man of the match - looking much better at right back.
need to improve for Tuesday
I agree it is annoying. The keeper was doing that thing of flopping to the floor every time he gathered the ball, then very slowly getting up and taking much more than 6 seconds to release the it. Healso went down with a mysterious leg complaint at one point, sitting inside his 6 yard box while the play was on the halfway line, then apparently made a full recovery after brief "treatment" from the physio.The buildup in the first half was painfully slow at times, We have two lightning quick wingers and Dylan and we were so slow in the buildup that they were able to park the bus.

I agree that's two points dropped.
I'd like to see some cards for timewasting, or guys who miraculously recover as soon as the game has stopped, not immediately allowed back on. It also probably makes me a horrible person but if they put it out, and their player makes a Lazarus like recovery (Chippenham 7, I'm looking at you), I wouldn't give the ball back either...
Think we will have to raise our game for Havant on Tuesday.
