Hell of a tackle by big Jozo on Miller in first half that nearly resulted in a goal when Griff hit the crossbar. Who was that plum commentating that firstly tried to call it two footed when it was nothing of the sort then followed by saying how lucky Jozo was to get away with it and how lucky Miller was that he got airborne. Even tried to highlight it again a few mins later when Windass got a yellow saying how that type of inconsistency frustrates players. One of the best, cleanest tackles I have seen all season, absolute top class. We keep that man fit we have one top class centre back on our hands.

Brown free to play on Saturday. Now no complaint when it is a kicking match Bhoys.

But I suppose very few comedians are universally popular.  I do like The Savage Eye but I know a lot of folk think it is terrible.
Savage Eye was brilliant, is it over?

Have not seen any new stuff lately - some hilarious stuff in it in my opinion from the English trial determining if the guy was Irish by playing the fiddle to see if he would start Irish dancing while throwing potatoes at him, the taking the soup one really got me, the Nordies and on and on and on.  Great stuff.

Is it just me,or do people generally find,with the exception of Pat Shortt,Freestate comedians (and I use that term losely) to be lewd,obnoxious and generally not funny?

I went to see Tommy Tiernan last minute a few years ago after a friend offered me a ticket - I am not madly up with the comedy scene but I do enjoy a good comedian but to be honest I came away thinking that is not comedy but rather a guy spewing as much filth as he could get out of his mouth.  I am far from a prude but it seriously lacked any sort of wit.

Yeah look if an offence was committed by the player then there are procedures in place to deal with this.  If he is guilty he is guilty and if the process is followed correctly then the outcome should be clear - well as clear as anything in these cases BUT the CB should have had some representation with him, similar cases should have been taken into account and any precedent thrown into the mix to support his case for either no sentence or minimal sentence if applicable - CB representation should have made this case stronger.

If the players have other grievances then, as pointed out previously here, then they should be raised either with this or separately but not under the guise of this one individual issue.  It is like giving your neighbour a slap on the nose for not holding a door for you and telling the world that this is why you did it when the real reason is he burned your hedge, ate your geraniums and threw a hot sausage from his BBQ into your fish pond.

So it is John Beaton he of awarding Sevco the ghost penalty against Hamilton in the cup in same match that he missed keeper handling well outside the area and allowed Garners assault on Imre not to mention ghost penalty Hearts got at start of season against Celtic fair idea what we will be facing Saturday if we did not know already.

And 4th official Bobby Madden for good measure obviously feel Sevco season tickets need a shot in the arm.

Griff prob said that at the time to wind Sevco up. He tweeted later that def was a penalty and it was a stone wall penalty so can't understand what the talk is about it.
The tackle on Roberts in the 3rd minute which ref gave a yellow surely will get Broony off the hook for his tackle against Ross Co...(if officials have they're way he'd get 6 months in Maghaberry)

Yeah when I saw Taverniers comments I was thinking yeah Griffiths is baiting him if he said that - one of those 'I got the ball' - 'Yeah mate you got the ball, Ill go and tell the linesman now sure'.

I see the press have been covering the idea that Don Robertson incorrectly gave Celtic the penalty on Sunday with Griffiths agreeing that it was the wrong call.  Agenda anyone?  In fact of course there is an agenda but they have to do better than that you would think.

Yeah the lad in question should have had some representation from our County at his hearing.  Not sure what the rest of the letter is about.

did enough but got sloppy in the last 20 mins. Probably no harm with a league game to come next week. They could and maybe should have given them a hiding today but i'll happily wait another week for that

Yeah turned all professional to my dismay instead of giving them a right good battering.

You'd wonder why the linesman waited until the hapless Wankhorn missed his chance before putting up the flag for offside? He was a 1m offside and the linesman was perfectly placed, in line with the play.

Wondered the same myself - if it had hit the net I am not so sure it would have went up.  The poor officiating yesterday will not get highlighted because we won at a canter but Sevco should have been playing with 9 by half time - Beerman had a cynical trip when Roberts went past him steaming into the box after being yellow carded for a dangerous tackle a few mins earlier plus that wee rat Halliday should have walked in the 3rd min.  Also Rogic took a bad one from Bates late in second half which would have been a free kick in a very nice position and through totting up if not the malice in the tackle either way a yellow yet Collum waved play on.

I agree to an extent. Rodgers is currently hitting all his targets. Being unbeaten domestically at this stage is more than would have been expected but at the same time if we want to be progressing we have to be a lot better than everything in Scotland. I am not saying he is the next Stein but at the same time you have to say that so far he has made a very good start and let's see how far he can raise the bar. What I will not do is try to anticipate when it falls apart or if it falls apart. That is for others, particularly the Scottish media who will have the knives sharpened already for any sort of slip and will be dying to create some sort of crisis.

yeah it was a good result away to All Saints last night. played the most of the second half with 14 men as well and came away with a 2 point win. Not a bad start to the season for a change.

Ballymena lack in finesse what they have in physical stature.
