Call me crazy Gooner, but you just complained about your ref as much as I did mine, and I can only imagine how you would have reacted had you lost. I never blamed the ref for our loss. First goal yes, the loss no. We missed chances, hit a post, and had 2 bad screw ups on both of their goals, and that is why we lost, not because of the ref. I just said that the ref did not help our cause.
CS, Gorge is basically a different team from last year. I watched them last year against you guys and they appeared to be VERY unfit and not very good at all. This year they were WAY better and I only recognized 2-3 of their players. So Gorge NS should be a good game.
Too bad I'm not worried about the thoughts of a website stalker who pops on various forums here to drop his pointless and not very well thought out posts without any clue about coaching, managing, developing, or administering the game....especially the women's game where I'm pretty sure you haven't done any of the above. Maybe you should stay over on the beer drinking and gambling threads where you might have a clue.
This is getting lame anyways....deleting TTP from my favourites now....maybe I'll go join the Dancing with the Stars website for more action.
Thanks to Regs, Conductor, WW for playing in the sandbox this week...hell, even some island folk...some weeks it's just like casting a well baited line into a stocked pond of fish willing to bite on anything.
It does amaze me how 2 months ago everyone was saying "there are 5 or 6 legitimate contenders this year"....but now everyone is jumping back on the SU bandwagon. I feel the 4 teams left were in that original group of teams that had a shot this year....that's why it isn't a stretch to pick one of them to upset SU. It's gotta happen sometime, doesn't it?
If Gorge makes the finals Surrey will be in for a battle, not necessarily b/c of Gorge's talent, they are pretty good, but if they have the same refs we had they will certainly make sure to do everything in their power to ensure that Gorge wins. I had heard all about the infamous island officiating and was lucky enough to have escaped it in my other games on the island until this year. Surrey should win but if they have the same refs it will be a lot closer than it should be.
Gooner, Gorge is decent, not outstanding. Not sure who the supposed "ringers" were b/c they had none, they were ok, but not ringers. Maybe your detailed scouting report was wrong. Not saying the refs made us lose, they didn't, but they definitely made our lives VERY difficult and blew a BRUTAL offside call to give Gorge their first goal, and they were 100% pro Gorge for the entire game.
Sidenote, Gorge's coach (new guy, not Dave Dew) is CRAZY, so the reffing plus the coach could make it a really entertaining game. Would it be too much to ask for a Surrey player to "unintentionally" kick the ball at Gorge's coach to shut him up

Wow! Way to be a man! Should we talk about your "hack" quality of soccer??? There's hard, well played footy and then there is dirty!!! WW, you probably didn't notice with your "frosted" bangs hanging in your eyes!!!
Seriously, false accusation. CMF's coach does not post on here. As for his hair, most guys could only be so lucky, he has AWESOME hair. You are probably just balding and jealous
Too bad it's on the Island.
