Not a penalty - it was outside the area. But a strong case for a sending off. Doidge might not have caught up with his flip of the ball past the goalie but the goalie intended to stop the ball to deny a goal scoring opportunity and it might well have been one.

Just have to get a bit more luck on Saturday

Can a penalty be awarded for an offence committed outside the 18 yard box?

Sorry Tommo, didn't realise that another page had been started before I typed the above.

Over to Colin for that one, unless junior comes on, he used to referee.

Just been reading Crawley forum and by and large they are complimentary towards FGR.
Obviously the early posts sent during the heat of the game were biased but later ones offering considered opinion admitted that FGR should have been ahead at half time, but that Crawley dominated most of second half.
They thought it was a good game with both sides having chances to win game and a draw was a fair result.

One poster wrote something very positive about FGR:

"FGR had a few useful players in midfield too.

Traore looks a quality midfielder. Strong, imposing, good dribbler.

They looked a useful side FGR, surprised they are below us. Surely they'll be up there come the end of the season if they play like they did today."

It was a shame we didn't convert more of our chances into goals yesterday, Kieffer Moore is now top scorer in English league but was deemed not good enough to get into our first eleven!!

Apologies - didn,t mean penalty, ( what was i thinking ? ), meant to state to that it was a legitimate sending-off offence for the Crawley goalie.Too many ciders!.

But Doidge was always MCs choice and, so, our Plan A. Moore wouldn't have started enough games while Doidge was fit and MC was determined to play just 1 up top. Its a shame we couldn't have both but the Ipswich offer was surely too good to turn down given the alternative was fighting for a first team place with us and resting on the bench for most games. Personally I think Doidge and Moore as a double act could have been made to work but I'm happy with what we have and I'm sure Moore is happy with his lot.

My interpretation of the laws and looking at that freeze frame are that its a free kick on the edge of the box and an automatic red for the 'keeper.

Notable that the match stats I read show 18 shots on goal, 7 of which were on target, for both teams. Which does rather suggest that a draw was a fair result!

Agreed. In reality, I can't see how him playing would have made a difference in the final analysis?

Ipswich signed Kieffer based on a fairly limited number of chances in our first team...

...surely if he had played MORE games for us, they would still have wanted him just the same?

And we could hardly have stood in the way of such a move (a la Pinnock)?

The only difference might have been that if he had played more and scored more for us, other teams might have got interested and we might have got more money...?!

And lets be honest, can you imagine ANYONE saying THAT during the first 7-8 games?! :o

Law 12
"DENYING A GOAL OR AN OBVIOUS GOAL-SCORING OPPORTUNITY
Where a player denies the opposing team a goal or an obvious goal-scoring opportunity by a deliberate handball offence the player is sent off wherever the offence occurs."

Were there any other Crawley players between the handball incident and the goal?
If not why was it a yellow and not a red?


The answer is a definite “NO”, it was a one on one. The referee consulted his linesman before producing the yellow card.
I very rarely criticise the officials as they are usually closer to the action and they are not all idiots, however, this referee was atrocious all game and that decision was in line with his general decisions, extremely poor or even diabolical.

Full highlights here.

Shows quite a lot more of our intricate build up play, hard style to coach but looks great when you get good at it. Technically we're looking a good side, lots of players who are comfortable in possession, prepared to be brave and even if it occassionally costs us goals, it's very good to see and will get results. The way football should be played, on the floor.

I know my match report's a bit late but I've been busy and short of time.

So:

First 45 mins we outplayed them and should've been two up at half-time.

Unfortunately we weren't. :(

Second half they did deserve one.....but that's all.
We deserved two more in the last ten minutes.

So 4-1 would've been fairer result if Ref had made better (correct) decisions.

No complaints about any of our players. They were brilliant.
Bradley so deserves his place. He's not only playing, he's saving us week after week.

My MOTM was pretty impressive when he came on (considering his absence), but Reece Brown was pretty good too!

P.S. What made the day extra special was being able to meet up with those I already knew and others I'd never met before.

Its outside the box so can't be a penalty. But as a former ref I would have sent the keeper off for denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
