Whyteleafe 0 Hastings 4

Rarely has a scoreline reflected the actual game so poorly.

Leafe had the upper hand in the first 45 minutes, although not much happened at either end.

Bertie Basset, looking resplendent in his replica referee outfit in the Hastings goal, made one great save, dropping instantly at his near post, as only us fat lads can, to push a low shot away for a corner.

The second half was even and uneventful until the 74th minute when Leafe defender Owen Roberts was adjudged to have fouled in the box and the resultant penalty was dispatched. Three quick goals followed as heads had dropped.

The penalty?

Roberts won the ball, but was sliding in and took the player after. The fact the Hastings player screamed like a girl and fell like he had been shot by a sniper in the Gold Aviation stand undoubtedly swayed a dubious decision that divided opinion, but certainly gifted the 3 points to the visiting team.

It was a sickener of an afternoon in the end. An absolute sickener.

In the event that you expect on purchasing another PC, think about PCs with the best consoles. Certain individuals imagine that a console is only an info device, while as a general rule, it is something that makes the PC useful. Individuals favor composing on a personal computer to composing on a PC console. [url=https://techydiy.com/full-tower-vs-mid-tower/]Full Tower Vs Mid Tower[/url]

Sorry Mark but it was a penalty all day long. Owen did not connect with the ball. He smashed the Hastings player's foot. It was the easiest penalty decision to make. Our own players admitted as much.

Oh, fair enough then, if that was the way the players saw it then further discussion is futile.

I was spitting blood and bullets this afternoon. It's a ridiculous scoreline in a game we could definitely have won.

Unfortunately, the only stat that matters is the scoreline.
Wasn't there yesterday (will be there for Guernsey game) but can hardly feel too hard done by after losing by 4 clear goals at home, and failing to even score once?
Last seasons home game against the tax dodgers was fantastic, let's hope for more of the same in a couple of weeks time. In the meantime, let's try and get some more away points on the board!

A few points:

- The players I spoke to after the game stated that it was a pen. What also was telling at the time it was given is that they didn't show any objection.

- I agree that the scoreline didn't reflect the game but once the second went in it was game over.

- I thought the officiating was pretty decent.

- I have a feeling that the new Whyteleafe manager was present yesterday.
