My 80 year old father in law had a personal phone call from Alan Curtis yesterday, checking he was ok.

Legend is an underused word when it comes to our Curt.

Wishing him all the best.

Scored 74 more top flight goals in 43 less games than Alan Shearer. That's a stat you wont see captioned on MOTD. Also a squillion % more entertaining and informative as a pundit.

Get well soon Jimmy

Sin Bins trial
at 12:13 30 Jul 2019

https://www.msn.com/en-gb/sport/football/fa-to-introduce-sin-bins-across-grass-r

I've long been an advocate of sin bins. I use them now unofficially with my mini footballers.


an example of where a sin bin would be appropriate- a team breaks inside their own half they have a numerical advantage, attackers over defenders, a player on the now defending team stops the move developing with a deliberate foul. Currently its always a yellow card as its a long way from goal and the attack hasn't fully developed, but a clear advantage existed to the counter attacking team. imho a yellow card isn't sufficient, it provides no redress to the fouled team, but a red card would be harsh. The defending player is always happy to commit the foul and get carded "taking one for the team".


If it meant 10 minutes in the bin, I think it would be very different. There are many other scenarios where a sin bin would be an effective deterrent, time wasting and simulation as examples.

Mini junior football question.
at 22:28 12 Jul 2019

Does anybody know, under FAW rules, at what age group kids go to 11 a side.

My U11s go to 8 a side next season, and I've been told by someone that they go to 11 a side at U12. Seems a hell of a jump to me.

I can't find anything conclusive on FAW sites.

Stoke red card overturned
at 18:53 11 Apr 2019

First sending off overturned because it wasn't a goal scoring opportunity.

I haven't seen a,replay but from my view in the south stand, if he's not brought down, Dan is clean through on goal. No one is catching him.
