I agree the ref was bad but not sure I agree with this point. If the time is up then it’s up.


He played exactly 5:17. That's a meaningless addition if you consider the additional stoppages.



The Referee was poor yesterday, but If he hadn't blown his whistle for full time I'm not even convinced Lewie would have had a shot, pretty sure he would have gone for the passing option or maybe a cross. Besides it was a straight forward shot for a keeper who looked very competent and comfortable with everything we put at him yesterday.

You are correct in both comments dons50, but........
The 45 minutes played each half and any added time are minimum but not finite times. The referee has the powers of discretion to allow for all manners of time wasting, injuries, dog on the pitch, crossbar breaking (I haven't seen that for many a year) etc. It is simply common sense to blow for time when the ball is in a neutral area and prevents any arguments.
Winning three on the trot after what we have already endured this season was indeed expecting too much, but considering how badly we need the points and were at home to an average Division 1 team, I do feel a tad disappointed, not because of the manner in which we played or ineptitude or missed chances - simply because we really, really needed those extra 2 points that slipped away from us.

Sadly yes. ;)

I don't think anyone feels the reffing made any difference to the result yesterday. The keeper had that shot well covered.

However, there is a consistent pattern against Chuks. That's my opinion anyway; but I am biased (a bit...).

Yes that's the one, Clive 'the book' Thomas. Wish you hadn't reminded me that it was 1978 though, 40 years ago and yet I remember it well. Mind you, I still remember England winning the world cup - despite the fact that as a Scot I try to forget it - and that was another 12 years further back. Hell, I can even remember when Scotland had a decent team.........! :)
