Owls vs. Addicks Matchday thread

In that blistering heat I think DM did that right thing protecting some of the players that are still getting back to full fitness.

I have to say I was a bit surprised Windass stayed on for the full 90+ but it’s probably just as well he did with that superb cross.

It’ll be intriguing to see which personnel get the nod for Pboro.

 I really hope Gregory is fit enough to start, the difference he makes to holding up the ball is essential. Tbh at times the way he takes the ball at head /neck height and brings it under control is as good as anything we’ve seen in the last 20years.

You make a good point about Windass doing the full 90 @Tank_Owl2,0but as see his options are Sow over Paterson (who played yesterday) I think he’ll risk Windass for 60. Maybe Windass off the bench would be the better option? Accept that you try to keep it tight for an hour and bring Windass on with others, to go and win the game. 
 

I like that we have options, though having Smith would be preferential. Hopefully Saturday will see him on the bench but maybe another week.

Let’s see after 10 games. He’s wank. Had his chances got the biggest budget in the league bottled it last season. 

I’m not fussed either way on Moore, some things I like and other parts of him frustrate me. 
 

I just thought it a bit reactionary to say you’re not going for not playing Adeniran when he’s clearly just managing him to full reintegration

He was like that at MK when Fizz broke through but shot at the keeper. Ironically he was the one wasting attacks by blazing over from miles out yesterday, twice when we'd got men in the box.  He was like another player after the change of position, (thankfully!)  

Windass was trying too hard IMO early on, well, certainly until the changes were made. It was like he was trying to do it on his own. 

However, as the game went on; the more mobile side we had, the better he became.

That incident when Palmer cleared off the line

 

We got away with one as Stockdale clearly handled a back pass, none of their players seemed to appeal

A bloke near me reckoned that the ref acknowledged it, and had played advantage as the ball fell to their player.

Not so sure myself, think the ref just got it wrong. As you say though it was a bit odd that they didn’t complain about it.

He did, we all saw it where I was sat. Dunno what advantage he was referring to, but that's definitely what he signalled

Fair enough, I was too busy watching the ball.

I suppose the fact that they did get a shot away must have been his thinking.

This advantage stuff is bollocks

The number of times we could have a free kick given and get the ball into the box is far more advantageous then the ref letting play carry on just because we've still got the ball and it's obvious we have nowhere to go with it

I think they just love everyone looking at them and they can make that "advantage" arm signal for 5 seconds

They love it even more when they get to run at least 50 yards to give the keeper the ball after a stoppage - that's 30 seconds that is never added on - hey why not stand with the keeper during the stoppage?

Are there any rules about the ref “dropping” the ball close to the keeper after a relevant stoppage?

If the ref is, for example, in the centre circle, holding the ball, couldn’t he just throw it to the keeper, thus saving those 30 seconds?
(Any forward trying to intercept the throw gets booked for unsporting behaviour).

If the ref has the ball in the centre and throws it back to wherever the restart is to be taken then it's 'time stopped' anyway so should be added on. 

To the letter of the law officials are supposed to remain neutral and not play the ball in any way. If the team with the restart time waste by not putting the ball in place then cards are supposed to appear. 

Sunday league refs have always kicked/thrown the ball in the general direction but today's professionals don't want to run the risk of ridicule by slicing the ball into the crowd so pick the ball up and place it.
