Although i agree with Edward,( so nice to see him and his good lady again), that the dissent can get over the top, this ref did nothing to help his own game. Bently got yellow carded ( rightly) for a tackle in the oppo half by the touch line , but a minute later, Ryan was hacked down with a challenge where feet left the ground and the ref did nothing..Consistency is key to gaining the respect of the players and the fans watching, and this ref did himself or the game no favours. Shawn got booked for merely jumping for a header when he first came on, and the ref's signal seemed to be for persistent fouling , having pointed at several locations on the pitch!!! Even his linesman was heard to say the ref's performance was embarrassing. So he even lost the respect of his colleagues!!!
If Herne Bay cant win this game , with this ref, than they are a poor outfit indeed.
But back to Edwards main point, last year we won the fair play award in the SECL, but we are rapidly losing out to silly bookings. We are coming to the point of the season where these bookings and subsequent suspensions can only cost us dear. The time has come for any player who is booking for mouthing off, should pay his own fine and may be get fined by the club.
Bently is now one more card away from a game ban, that will be 10 offences in half a season!!! That is going to cost us somewhere down the line!!!
Still top 5 though and a win Sat will take us into the Christmas period in a very good position. Lets make sure we are in a position to take advantage of of that by keeping our best players on the pitch, not sat on their arse waiting out a suspension.
