    Wow that's a remarkable turnaround if you were passing the ball that well already. As I don't think you are that bad on paper squad wise I think you should take a gamble and give Morrison a good crack at it

    Well obviously we are going down as long as McCann is in charge.

    I wander if he'll get the Farke treatment and get sacked after a win with the international break upon us?

    Not as long as the Allams are in charge, no.

    I’d say it’s early doors, but I think Morison has shown he would take us in that direction. We’re far from a fluid, passing team yet but there are some signs of a shift in style. We still lack naturally creative players though and won’t have transfer funds so expect a gradual evolution hopefully with emerging young players playing their part.

    That's pretty much the point I was getting at. Players feel they need to go down in the area to ensure they get given the penalty even though a foul should be a foul whether or not they go down

    Fair play to your fans, really was a great atmosphere. Top class home support.

    Got outplayed second-half against 10 men. The squad is rubbish but even allowing for that we shouldn't be this shit. Need some results quickly after the break or Nige will be off

    Irrelevant of whether it is soft or not, I'm pretty sure a direct kick to the calf muscle is a foul and any foul committed inside the box is a penalty.
    Since when has a foul had to stop a 'goal scoring opportunity' for it to be classed as a foul worthy of a penalty? How many times have we seen a defender lunge in at a striker who is actually moving away from the goal? If your defender is that stupid, then you deserve a penalty against you!

    This falls into the stupid category as per the example I have used above. If a ball is that high that no-one is going to reach it then why is the defender nudging the opponent in the back? It doesn't matter where the ball is, a foul is a foul!

    I can't say I have ever seen this happen. Once the ball goes out of play, play is 'dead' and anything that happens after is pretty much an irrelevance except for serious misconduct issues where the ref may feel it appropriate to show someone a card. I'm sure someone can correct me here, but I'm of the thinking that the absolute most a ref could offer for a 'foul' after the ball has gone out of play would be an indirect free kick inside the box. But using the same example but with the ball still in play when the foul is committed, it doesn't matter whether the attacking player can reach it or not, if he/she is fouled by a defender then it is a foul and therefore a penalty! Another one for the stupid defending category if you ask me.

    This one is slightly more contentious because we all know players will happily stick a leg under the outstretched leg of a defender to instigate a trip. However, once again I would be asking why the defender is giving an attacker the opportunity to do this - once a defender goes down and sticks a leg out in the box, he/she is just giving the ref a decision to make. Probably harsh to stick this one in the stupid defending category but it's not far off!

    You never know I guess? atm I rate your chances of escaping better than ours, but it's not a very high bar to beat lol.

    Interesting. Looked a really unnatural fall and a dive to me on first view on Quest highlights.

    So you don't think it was a penalty?

    I had a good view of it, Whiteman goes to clear the ball and their lad just nicked it away and he booted the back of his calf.

    Unfortunately not at Reading FC (in the Championship), I wouldn't recommend any food from within the Mad Stad. They apparently sell these at Reading City FC, a club that plays in the ninth tier of football.

    From the TV camera angle, it really looks dodgy. But if from behind it looked different like @TomPNE94 said, then fair enough.

    Going down the Chelmsford route of calling the team a city before it has city status ;)

    The replay I saw clearly showed Johnson taking a kick to the calf and I'm pretty sure that equates to a foul and a foul in the box is a penalty! Not really sure anything looks dodgy about it, Johnson was just too quick to get in between defended and ball

    I said it earlier on, it was a penalty but you're right about being an unnatural fall.

    Well I thought it looked unnatural fall, that's all, @Daz_Blade and many others I'm sure thought so too.

    Doesn't mean there wasn't contact - perhaps he needs training in how to go over more realistically ;).
