I still can't agree about Ashley's sending off. It was right in front of us and was reckless (those around me immediately said that he'd be lucky to stay on) - although I agree with Pete that in the context of the game, and the ref's failure to send off the Willis-pushing Nuneaton player, it didn't fit in. And you're right - she did take a yellow out first. The point is that he gave her a decision to make.

PS If what their bloke did wasn't deliberate foul play, I've no idea what is. And they had another couple of similar incidents.

I have no major problems with Jackson's sending off, as it was very late and potentially damaging. However, I do have a problem with the ref not sending off their bloke who blatantly and deliberately pushed Willis off the pitch, itself potentially very damaging. At least Jackson was trying to play the ball - their bloke was making no attempt at all. If refs don't take a firm line on that sort of thing, we will never get thuggery out of football.

We lived in York Street, straight over from the car park, when I first started going to watch the Pilgrims at the age of ten or so. It was always my aim to see if I could hear the final whistle and then belt over the road to get in the house before the result came in on the vidiprinter (older readers will remember the flashing black and white system in use on the BBC in the late 60s!).

For anyone who hasn't seem it - this is a really interesting interview with Nathan Arnold on his move to Boston and his football career in general.

He speaks very well, and is clearly a thoughtful character. I wish him luck.

I also wish him all the best, though sorry to see him go. He played out of position under Murray, but never let us down, and was then one of the stand-out players of the recovery under CE once in his best position.
