  • Wow. A tie.

    I think Yallop's criticism of the ref was justified, but good teams figure out how to overcome bad calls. Just not good enough.

  • Sad to see players from both teams tweeting about the field conditions...

  • In reply to DerSting:

    When your practice field looks better than the game field, there is a problem. It is the worst field that any "professional" team will play on. It is close to a high school field than a professional field. Whoever gave the okay to play a football game in the middle of our season should be fired. Whenever they give a tour, they make sure to tell everyone to stay off the field so they dont ruin it... Hamid had to put the sod back in place after he took up a huge chunk. Embarrassing.

    Now onto the team, I would rather lose these matches because we were trying to win. Change the formation, play with 3 in the back. Why not take off Palmer and put on Earnshaw? The team celebrated that 3rd goal like the won the league because of it when all they did was tie the game after they blew a 2 goal lead. The mentality is so terrible with this team. At this point, a tie is the same thing as a loss. The only player that always wants the ball is Shipp. His form has dropped a bit, probably because he was benched (probably for "cap" reasons or something). Cocis and Watson would be happy if they never touched the ball for the whole game. How Alex continues to play, let alone start, is insane. He hasnt done ANYTHING this entire season. He contributes the same amount as Matt Fondy. Benji Joya must be absolutely terrible if he cant get in ahead of Watson and Cocis. Its a shame that he wasted a season here. We need Yallop to go now. CJ can take charge of this team.
