not there to see it for myself-but love the way the formation is described' in the article :

4-1-2-1-2

again-not there-but i constantly read about how teams need 'width'.

personal view is keep it central, and boxxxcks to this width stuff.

did fgr play 'narrow'.
3 goals scored by playing 'narrow'

to my mind-width is a myth

4/10 for the ref is a bit harsh!

I was staggered he made six bookings and blew for 26 fouls! It was never that type of of game. Ethan got booked for a tackle!

He wasn't the worst ref we have seen at TNL, certainly better than the "look at me" specimen we had last week, but the game wasn't anywhere near as dirty as the card count suggested. He did overrule his assistant on the main stand side a couple of times over throw ins, where they had been called correctly by the flag wielder, on one occasion without even looking in his direction. To be fair, I don't really care what score the ref has been given, the only one that matters is the 3-0 result.

FGR and Macclesfield both have a reputation for good discipline, although Macc have had several red cards this season, a fate that we have managed to avoid in league matches. Today was a competitive match, Macclesfield were more physical - it could be argued their cautions ensured we were not bullied or finished with any injuries.

Five cards does seem excessive, but not for Alan Young who gave 8 out at Sutton on Tuesday and 6 last Saturday at Braintree. His average is almost 5 a game, one of the highest in The National League.

So he is a card waver, given that I thought he was decent especially considering the poor decisions of his assistants, especially the one on the far touchline. We have had far worse refs this season

I agree about the incorrect decision to book Ethan Pinnock.His tackle, in my opinion, was fair one

Hi
Bob said something during the commentary about the number of cards that ref has handed out. I think he said that Heather provided him with the info so perhaps she can tell us how many it has been.

Yes I did pass the info on to Bob on the radio, including yesterdays game his record is 14 National League matches with 62 yellows and 4 red cards, I also gave the info to Joicie on Thursday and asked him to pass this info onto the Manager to warn the players that the ref was card happy.

Mr. Young is averaging 4.42 yellows per game.

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.
