    I think it's straight to penalties no extra time

    I think players like Clarke and Woods will be able to stand up for themselves...plus a nailed on card for Jeff King
  3. It is important to ensure that the young players coming through the Academy feel they are part of the organisation as a whole and that there is a way to progress if they are good enough.

    Referee had a busy night at South Shields last night issuing 14 yellow cards...... 9 for Morpeth and 5 for South Shields.
  5. Five of last seasons Academy players at Guiseley were given first team contracts.
  6. Same for me, the refund came from inPlayer not Woking FC
  7. Can't ask for more than that.

    Exhibit 1

    Shaymus, the Shay, whatever state it was in was always the "home" of football for many of us. On the other hand, apart from the Skircoat Road Stand being out of service, I think I prefer the current version than what we had back in the 70's.

    Probably in the 1960's. I seem to recall the floodlights were second hand as well, someone like Man City?
  10. One of the interesting facets of the Lottery money seems to be some sort of free admission to games being given out.
  11. Still, £84k per month is better than if it was just shared out equally across the whole NL. Is this for 3 months or longer?
  12. Hoddie, no, all 23 NL clubs, plus N/S are receiving a grant from the National Lottery.

    FA Cup

    Watched the highlights of their 0-1 home loss last Saturday. Nothing there that we should not be able to cope with. The right back gets forward a lot and looks a good player but the other fullback will struggle for pace against Allen. Let's hope Jake Hyde is fit and raring to go.... I sense a 2-0 to Town. Roared on virtually by 100's of Shaymen streaming the game - at least 50% of the streaming proceeds are shared with us.
  14. Let's hope the agents don't turn their heads then and they start to want silly money.

    Did anyone watch the S/Shields game tonight? I see they managed a 0-0 draw against Morpeth.

    Exhibit 1

    Whilst I prefer to look forward rather than backwards, I agree that in some ways certain aspects of football were better 30 years ago. ( I do not include the Shay Stadium in that list)

    Common denominator - both owned by American millionaires!
  18. So, if you paid by card then get onto them and ask for them to refund you the money.
  19. I refereed a games at St Bedes (Bradford) in a cup match that turned a bit tasty. It ended up with a mass brawl between about 10-12 players from each team, but one of the ran from about 15 yards away before smacking one of the home team in the face. Clear as day I could not miss it. After things clamed down and the cards were handed out, the thug who carried out what can only be classed as "assault" was sent off and a match report submitted to both the Yorkshire League and the WRCFA, along with the disciplinary report which left no doubt as the seriousness of the offence. I later found o

    Let's hope they have 3 of Louisa's clones handling the phones....otherwise there will be a lot of grumpy S/Shields S/T holders.
  21. Top marks for staying safe.
  22. Tommy, I would take another view on the Pickford incident. Take for example if the ball goes out for a throw in, while the ball is being retrieved, Bluer No. 5 punches Red No. 9 in the face. Should the referee send off Blue No. 5 for Violent Conduct or does the referee have a strong word with Blue No. 5 regarding his behaviour as the ball was out of play? The same applies to the Pickford incident. Whilst a penalty could not be awarded as the attacking player was in an offside position, the offending defender should still be punished for either playing in a reckless manner, or using excess
  23. Would a helmet count as a face mask? One of those that covers your whole head but has a visor.

    As far as I am aware Sky have no FA Cup rights to televise games.
  25. Give that man a cigar....
