    That Referee

    Yep, I was appealing for handball (as I knew he was onside). Clearly controlled the ball dead with his arm. Credit Dawson for keeping us in the game.

    That Referee

    Correct me if I'm wrong but he was the referee who gave United 2 penalties for fouls outside the box at Millwall. I was raging at the one where he let them try and score with a player down then as soon as we break he blows up!!!

    I continue to be staggered by these threads. Westwood clearly has an issue with the club (or vise versa) and won't play for us again. END OF. Wildsmith has made numerous MISTAKES WHICH HAVE LEAD TO GOALS AND DEFEATS yet people want him in the team and claim him to be the better keeper. Dawson has lost us no points in his entire SWFC career so far yet people want him dropped.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this. Wildsmith cost us the game at QPR in April with 2 howlers. Yes Dawson looked a little nervy last night but he hasn't cost us any points in ANY game he has played for the club. Wildsmith has. As for the post above saying he should have saved the shot last night! Wow, just wow!

    Away games, a closed shop?

    I have a season ticket, plus go to every home cup game (which alot don't do losing an easy 10pts). I attended 2 away games last season and have done Wigan and Reading this season. That would have got me Villa tickets if I wanted them. Buy Season Tickets Go to ALL home cup games 2/3 away games You have enough to go to pretty much any game you choose. I'm on 570 using the system above, would have got me my Villa ticket before they sold out.

    Caught sight of this a HT.. 6 subs came out to stretch and warm up before some ball work at HT. FF didn't appear until after the fitness stuff had been done. Fitness coach was clearly unhappy with him, pointing at his wrist (time). FF made a comment back, coach made another gesture about time keeping. Stuff like that will keep him out of the side with the type of manager we have..

    Was going to say the same. Appreciated by players and managers for pressing all game. Not appreciated by the uneducated (some fans).

    We won but...

    We couldn't beat Ipswich over the last 3 seasons with a strong squad, maybe you need to be ugly to beat them...

    Ipswich Goal

    clearly attempting to play a ball which is close when this action impacts on an opponent or making an obvious action which clearly impacts on the ability of an opponent to play the ball Explain to me how the player doesn't break one of those rules when he moves to head the ball, causing Dawson come off his line slightly.

    Ipswich Goal

    The discussion isn't about knowing the rules, the goalscorer was clearly onside. The debate is over the player who was in an offside position. The assistant (and referee) had to decide if he was 'active' and interfering with play. In my opinion he became 'active' we he suddenly moved towards the ball, Dawson reacted by coming off his line slightly which enabled the scorer to head over him. If that player had not been there, or continued to walk away from play Dawson's position wouldn't have altered and he 'may' have made the save. Watch the video, the player clearly moves towards the ball to play it, causing Dawson to change position therefore he's actively contributed. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Offside offence A player in an offside position at the moment the ball is played or touched* by a team-mate is only penalised on becoming involved in active play by: interfering with play by playing or touching a ball passed or touched by a team-mate or interfering with an opponent by: preventing an opponent from playing or being able to play the ball by clearly obstructing the opponent’s line of vision or challenging an opponent for the ball or clearly attempting to play a ball which is close when this action impacts on an opponent or making an obvious action which clearly impacts on the ability of an opponent to play the ball --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Those rules are from the FA website: His action impacts Dawson, that cannot be disputed. It causes him to alter position which affects his ability to make a save. 2 rules were broken infact. Therefore OFFSIDE, FACT.

    Today’s line up

    Wasn't really as he knew the team before the rest of us (granted he missed out Nuhiu by error).

    Penney / Preston

    Anyone who was watched U23 for the last few years will realise Penney could have solved our left back issues long before we brought Fox in. Finally he had his chance.

    He's clearly carrying a knock, was doubtful for the Brentford game.
