Dreadful game, poor performance by both us and the Ref who started well but lost the plot, didnt deserve to lose or do enough to win, it seems we have signed some players to boost the squad but today showed really we still need a bit of quality not just numbers, not a clue why the ref sent Rob off - i think the keeper told him what happened !!! ridiculous decision, the only bit of warmth to take from today was seeing Williams back- if Rob Hopley gets a 3 match ban we will really struggle up front with Tames out also they are really our only 2 decent players up front IMO. UTA
ps decent gate 605
Desperately missed Matty Devine today, Barraus certainly is a different player when Matty plays.
Just an off day which happens, just unfortunate it happened to be against them.
Says a lot when the keeper is asking the linesman after 15 mins how longs gone . Referee should have got a grip on the time wasting early on.
Only consolation is we hopefully only have to play them once more ever.
One club in Northwich , always has been always will be
Yes Matty was a big loss for us today and all because of that incompetent ref at Chester. A strangely passionless game today where we didn't really get going and they belied their lowly (before any pending points deduction) position. Their keeper made a couple of really good stops mind. I was right there when we scored and tried to get the ball back quickly the V*cs players seemed to talk the ref into the sending off I was sure it would be Brad as he'd been booked and I was shouting at him to leave it. What on earth Rob did to deserve a strait red god only knows I've never seen him do anything to even deserve a yellow.....can we appeal it?? Also why those few V*cs fans chose to be at our end in the second half and try to cause trouble I can't understand, maybe they are the ones who were lauding Rushes drug involvemet against Glossop or just frustrated about their sad situation....hey ho COME ON THE ALBIOOOOON!!
Brad was head to head with one of their players, and I did think he could have received a second yellow for it. Rob then ran in and grabbed one of them by the collar, next to the guys jaw, so would have been sent off for raised hands.
