On Freddie's booking - I wasn't at the game but followed it on the Bath internet radio. They were commenting on some of his tackles and at least ten minutes before he got booked, they said he was certain to go in the book if he carried on tackling in that way. So when he did go in the book, I was not surprised. The commentary seemed fairly even-handed.

The ref was definitely one of them who wanted to be the centre of attention, you can just imagine him sitting at home polishing up his Red card so it can all look shiny and pristine when he inevitably gets it out.

Have to admit I was expecting him to give them a dubious penalty or something of the like. He actually started off fairly well but like a lot of referee's started to lose the plot after about 30 minutes. Booked their player for a relatively nothing challenge then booked Grant for a perfectly decent slide tackle.

However the real talking point of the night was the absolutely hopeless situation in McDonalds just outside the ground. Shorn of any other option due to Twerton being a boil on an otherwise fine ass that is Bath, along with a number of other Stones fans a reluctant visit was made to the golden arches. Queues almost out of the doors, nothing being served up, a cashless 'self serve' system that wasn't working properly, staff who just grunted back in return when advice was sought. Lets just say the establishment received a glowing report from the poster quoted above.

Must give appreciation of the black pepper burger with onions served in the ground

24 hours on from an epic night. That really was a heroic performance. I truly believe Wealdstone are made for these big occasions. Put a Biggleswade or Hayward's Heath in front of us and the motivation just isn't there. However, give us a big game, big crowd and make US the underdogs, then the team are truly united and playing for each other. It brings the best out of our players. Yes we have injury worries for Sunday but write us off at your peril..........

He's young compared to some (most!?) of us, but not quite that young. :D He's 27.

Just had a look back at that thread after the Dulwich game.........

A couple of weeks is a long time in football.

We cruised into the play offs in 2012 and 2013 yet didn't get the job done when it mattered. Were physically out done and lost our discipline at Lowestoft, missed too many chances and had a 6'5 keeper who was vulnerable in the air against Concord.

To add to that, couldn't help but have a look at the video from the Concord play off. Whilst we had the better of the 90 minutes and created more chances, there was a real anxiety about some of our play. Our keeper Ricki Banks nearly gifted them the ball twice when under no pressure at all. Clearly we were feeling the effects of a bit of expectation.
