Yep Sorry 2 points lost, Trying to rush typing on a phone, ApologiesErr, 2 points lost.
Anyway it's always different seeing the game live, in the round as such, rather than through the single eyed-lens of a camera. This always helps Exewebbers not to make daft comments.
And all the stuff that went on away from the camera angle , I wished I had filmed Williams being pushed into the box prior to the pen then our colon cousin could have seen that as well.One thing you can't really pick up watching on screen rather than live is the pace and ferocity of certain incidents. Both the fouls on Randell which picked up yellow cards were very forceful which a different referee on a different day could have shown as red. Particularly the first one which was from behind as well. Both seemed to have excessive force (not the eighties anymore). Their second goal also really whizzed past Ward, the deflection took no pace off the shot and he had very little time to react. Something that isn't evident on screen.
In fairness to antman, aside from him generally being one of the more astute observers on these boards he also may be in position to comment away from the "mob mentality" of being in the crowd as well as having TV angles to look at.Sorry Anty are you sure you are in Barcelona and not Arizona. It just goes to show how deceptive the lens can be. I was sat in the NOG virtually alongside where Law shouldered the ball down to control it turn and score. Unless in the new rules you are now no longer allowed to shoulder a ball there was no way it was hand ball.
And as for the ref not having too bad a game again it must be a TV thing and this could explain Pierre's lopdsided view of things. He was absolutely dire! Not just one sending off near the end, there should have been at least two in the second half both for second bookable offences which he didn't follow through, particularly Ling on Sparkes when Ling feigned injury, and allowing players to slowly walk across the pitch when being substituted again showed he had lost control. But then according to the Orient fans I am just one of a number of whingeing Grecians
I don't think I have seen anyone foul so much off the ball than their no 21. So many times when City looked to counter Taylor was having to pick himself off the floor.And all the stuff that went on away from the camera angle , I wished I had filmed Williams being pushed into the box prior to the pen then our colon cousin could have seen that as well.
