The B-Ark / Re: Trialists
« on: July 13, 2022, 01:49:47 PM »
In the second half we were standing close enough to the bench to listen out for any clues re names of trialists, but Paul Cox seemed to refer to everyone as "son".
But in the first half (without too many trialists on the pitch) we looked pretty decent. My pal commented that the ball was getting moved round much quicker than last pre-season

Well I did feel a bit guilty about telling you that so i'm glad you got a match ticket!

Oh Pete it would have been about £14 cheaper to get a day return Nottingham to Sheffield and then another one Sheffield to York and you could have travelled on any train!

Sorry by posting this I realise I might have reduced the price you can get even further...

Yes I know a York fan who thinks they lost their 2020 playoff to Alty in part because they had a long gap between competitive games. Admittedly that was four months as opposed to two weeks but I can see how even a fortnight would be too long a break.

As for having another midweek game to allow an extra weekend for the playoffs, I don't know but I always assumed we had so few midweek games this season was because spaces were deliberately left for any Covid-related postponements...

Well that's odd. Whilst he is named on the Bournemouth website as a physiotherapist, his name does not seem to be on the HCPC register, which you have to be if you are a qualified physiotherapist.

He might be using another name on there I suppose but if he is not and is still calling himself a physiotherapist then he is committing a criminal offence.

He seemed like a nice lad when he played for us so I won't dob him in yet...

Comprehensive win, three well-taken goals and a deflection and to be honest it was probably over after the second goal.
And well done to the ref, I thought he might not give the second yellow as it meant sending another player off but he did not bottle it.

But even if we reach the playoffs we have done nothing to suggest we would win three games against top 7 sides. That is not to judge Paul Cox though - let's see how he does in a full season with his own players...

Comedy ref... though Shane Byrne might put it a bit stronger than that!

I don't think it was announced at the game but then I couldn't make out what he was saying half the time...

Bunga did a tackle in the second half that looked dreadful from the other end of the pitch - he got a yellow but probably would have been a red in a proper game.

And as Pete B says, you can't complain about the result, they missed a couple of decent chances and Crook did a good save, whereas aside from the goal their keeper just had to make routine stops. He did drop a couple of corners but we didn't capitalise on the loose ball.

I'm not sure I'll be watching too many of last night's players come August.

Yes Andy, given the city has the oldest club, oldest ground and oldest club called United, Sheffield doesn't make much of its football heritage - just a few signs as you enter the city and Home of football walking tour app that isn't that well publicised...

They are! I can't tell you how they have changed since previous seasons as both times I've been recently the bar has been too crowded to even get in...
