Presumably Tillson got his arse kicked righteously by all and sundry in the changing room afterwards for two frankly ridiculous challenges. To be honest he should have been booked twice for each foul: once for the challenge and once for the sheer stupidity. The second one especially was particularly dim witted. I hope Tisdale leaves him in the stands for the next couple of games - idiocy on that scale has no place on a football pitch.
Well he has to for the next game...!

Had he not been booked previously, the second yellow may have been praiseworthy as "taking one for the team" as FGR looked like they could be in otherwise. However, having already been booked, it was stupid stupid stupid.

Yeah just being on the end of lofted clearances doesn't suit his strengths, he's no Wheeler when it comes to using his head. When we play with players that can get to the goal line and then cross, well we know what Stockley can do in those circumstances!
Last night he put in every effort, noticeably with his extra work in a defensive role when we were a man short. After two hours of running around (which is a lot for a big man) he still had the energy and enthusiasm to stretch for Boateng's cross. 5 FA cup goals in 3 matches. Don't knock it.
No, I agree he wasn't given the right service, hence I said he barely had an impact, I didn't say he didn't put the effort in, or didn't bother because he did.

Well that's two penalties this week that Pym should have saved. I thought Saturdays was bad enough but Tuesdays was even worse. Has Tillson suddenly got Cameroonian parentage and become Benjamin Massing (if you're not old enough watch, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeRlJJbtdHc)? Did anybody else think that the FGR red card was harsh? A foul definitely but never a booking.

A yellow card doesn't have to be for a single foul, it was clearly given for repeated fouling under Law 12: persistent infringement of the Laws of the Game.

Mark Cooper said it was the right punishment.

He should have got a 2nd yellow 10mins earlier when he blocked Taylor after a 1-2 with Stockley. Was obvious he was on his last warning.
