Last week we were nailed on for a top 6 finish.

2x meaningless 45 min fitness matches following some team building and we're doomed.

I'm kinda certain that there's some middle ground here.

Anyone's 15yr olds looking for a new Saturday morning footy club?

We're looking for new blood for the coming season. Well respected and well known youth club set up.

Please drop me a pm if interested or spread the word.

This new handball ruling coming in - Dutch V Japanese Lasses last night.
at 11:36 26 Jun 2019

I only caught the post match summary where everyone (including the Japanese defender who handled the ball) seemed to be in agreement that the penalty was legitimite.

On viewing, I was expecting the defender to look like Patrick Starfish from Spongebob but she simply had her arm down and the ball hit her on the arm as she was looking to defend the shot.

Imagine the Dog & Duck v The Horse & Groom on a Sunday morning and the official ref doesn't turn up and the stand in homer ref gives one of these against the opposition. Carnage.

Here's the summary from the FA info I got sent last week.

FYI, I went to an FA event around sin bins for next season too. I'm all in favour although it seems madness that a player can get 3x yellow cards in a game and not take any further part in the game but not be sent off.

Deliberate handball remains an offence
•The following ‘handball’ situations, even if accidental, will be a free kick:
•the ball goes into the goal after touching an attacking player’s hand/arm
•a player gains control/possession of the ball after it has touches their hand/arm and then scores, or creates a goal-scoring opportunity
• the ball touches a player’s hand/arm which has made their body unnaturally bigger
• the ball touches a player’s hand/arm when it is above their shoulder (unless the player has deliberately played the ball which then touches their hand/arm)

The following will not usually be a free kick, unless they are one of the above situations: •the ball touches a player’s hand/arm directly from their own head/body/foot or the head/body/foot of another player who is close/near
• the ball touches a player’s hand/arm which is close to their body and has not made their body unnaturally bigger
• if a player is falling and the ball touches their hand/arm when it is between their body and the ground to support the body (but not extended to make the body bigger)
• If the goalkeeper attempts to ‘clear’ (release into play) a throw-in or deliberate kick from a team-mate but the ‘clearance’ fails, the goalkeeper can then handle the ball

Explanation: Greater clarity is needed for handball, especially on those occasions when ‘nondeliberate’ handball is an offence. The re-wording follows a number of principles: •football does not accept a goal being scored by a hand/arm (even if accidental)
•football expects a player to be penalised for handball if they gain possession/control of the ball from their hand/arm and gain a major advantage e.g. score or create a goal-scoring opportunity
• it is natural for a player to put their arm between their body and the ground for support when falling.
• having the hand/arm above shoulder height is rarely a ‘natural’ position and a player is ‘taking a risk’ by having the hand/arm in that position, including when sliding
• if the ball comes off the player’s body, or off another player (of either team) who is close by, onto the hands/arms it is often impossible to avoid contact with the ball

A tip from the stables via a mate, via a mate

Iolani in the 5:10 at Haydock

Was at 33's yesterday and now down into 14's.

Stable was hoping for rain this afternoon and it's bucketed down a little while ago. Worth a small each wayer.

What a cesspit of liars, exaggerators, sycophants and look at me-ers.

The last company I worked with used LinkedIn as a marketing tool and monitored LinkedIn SSL tools for all employee. SSL provides a LinkedIn individual score based on liking peoples' posts, commenting on things and posting/writing articles. We'd get weekly league tables with our score and tips on how to improve.

I've not updated my LinkedIn status since I left, so I still must be appearing on their weekly league table, which amuses me a lot more than it should.
