Yeah, there's no foul on their keeper. There's a video on LCB from U7 and you can clearly see the keeper jump with no-one and flap/scissor it into the net without actually catching it. Rhead(?) and Bostwick come in behind him.

Cracking pic on bubsy's Twitter showing the same.

First chance to post since Sat. Can't really add a lot, always disappointing not to beat 10 men, especially after leading. But just wondered what people thought about the drop ball where we played on and Green ran through but Swindon clearly thought we were going to kick it to them? DC was screaming at the players to throw it back to them from the throw in that followed and was clearly annoyed. Quite rightly in my opinion, think we need to be better than that.


Drop-ball was for Swindon 'head injury' when the player had just fallen over, cynical move to stop play. He then refused the physio so he didn't have to go off. FA need to tighten the rules as its being clearly abused (Coventry did this a lot), players going down like that need assessment for head injury protocols as per rugby. That will stop the 'fake' injuries, clearly also a danger that a player with a genuine injury may soldier on to avoid this but clubs need to be made aware of their responsiblities in this regard.

Our players involved knew this one was a con job. Treating the drop-ball the way we did was therefore fair game in my view.

+1. Totally agree.

Agreed.


I thought the game might get a bit tasty after that, but I think the Swindon players realised they'd been rumbled.

Weren't we in possession when he went down? Surely, that would mean they should have given it to us!
