I was there and it looked a horrible challenge. I don't think any of the City fans who saw it thought it was anything but a red. And either way it was also a brainless challenge, no need for it especially in that area of the pitch.

That challenge can’t have been much different to the one the Kettering player did on Leadbitter. I thought both looked like red-cards.
Are there referee assessors at this level?

That's my whole point. I'm not necessarily questioning the decision and I doubt we'd have gone on to win with Fab on the pitch but do we ever see opponents sent off for those kind of challenges? No!

One from Halifax sticks in the throat. 1st minute their man goes in like that on Jack Harris. Ref bottles the red and shows a yellow to appease 1250 home fans. 2nd minute their man scores.

We got a mention on ITV sports west news tonight? Yes you can guest what for  and it was nothing about the FA CUP?????????
CHORLEY SCORE Doesn't any body bother when we do well?


RE: Chorley - Severnside - 06-09-2021

The damage THAT performance has done to us is nothing but tragic and set us back immeasurably, I feel desperately sorry for AP and EM the effort and work they have done in doesn't deserve this negative media coverage.

The team and its management should be ashamed but for me worse is our team recruitment and naive game tactics that still puts a question mark over PG etc

We need an immediate response both in the league AND Cup, the recruitment to replace key positions found sadly lacking of late will test if PG is up for the job and he has till the end of the month I reckon to sort it!

I think a free coach up to Gateshead paid for by the players etc should numb the pain for us freaks that watched that Saturday


RE: Chorley - Neil - 06-09-2021

So you can watch it happen again??? Wink

Apparently, on BBC Radio Gloucestershire, they said, 'Its a local Derby in the FA Cup, but it's NOT THE DERBY'!!! If BBC Radio Gloucestershire turn up to the Ibis Arena, bet it will be a Longlevens media frenzy.
Seems that we are in a no win situation with this FA Cup tie. We Win:- Well we are expected to. We Lose:- BBC Radio Gloucestershire will have a field day.
Hopefully we can go some way of erasing the Chorley result by putting in a all round good team performance against Curzon Ashton.

Very true ,it seems that local radio  and TV only mention us if it's bad news(except Severn sound)?
I once wrote to the citizen paper( when based in Gloucester) about city's reports being very sparce compared to ch@£#%&m  and was told it was a county paper and not a city paper ? Now it's in c@£&%#@m wonder what they come up with now?
OH I know ? its a name change to Gloucestershire Live or do they mean c@#&%@#m live.
Think we should have a name change to  Millwall city because it seems that no one likes us???????????????????

Do people even still listen to that crap? It's as relevant at the Citizen has made itself.
