Connah's Quay Nomads just got through to the Irn Bru Cup Final with Ross County.
I wonder where the final of this 'frankenstein's creature' of a tournament will be held (Palmerston?)
I'm a man, and as a man I crave disappointment.

That's why I support Aberdeen Football Club & Scotland.

21 (YES TWENTY FUCKING ONE) year old Cosgrove to show what he can do when he is finally given a real chance.

That's a decent call as Dumfries is pretty much equidistant from both clubs. Suspect they will go for Fir Park in the end though. Still fairly accessible for Connahs Quay being on the M74

Hilarious fuck up by the Hearts 'keeper in the last minute of injury time to gift Motherwell a 2-1 win. If you haven't seen it I recommend wearing some incontinence pants when you see it on Sportsmen's as you will pish yourselves  :rofl:

If Celtic can dispose of Killie later amazingly our draw yesterday will have caused no real damage

Goal and  red card for Brown. I presume the second yellow ill be for jumping into the Tic fans behind the goal?

It was.

Huge deflection off a Killie player but Brown celebrated like he had scored a wonder strike. Mind you I suppose it probably has all but won Victim FC the league.

Surely not? It was less than two months ago that a gluepot was saying WE were going to win the league, aye, after beating the worst two teams.

Just seen the replay of the Killie Goalie's red card.

May as well just hand Sevco the trophy and get it over with ::)

Corrupt bastards.  I don't even blame the huns for this one.  This is squarely at the door of the SFA.  If we're getting a player sent off next month, I hope it's for a good assault on one of those cunts.

Just seen the sending off of the Killie Keeper and makes me wonder if worth getting my tickets for the upcoming Scottish cup tie as seems like we are not on a level playing field.

It's a staggeringly bad decision. Really bad. It's difficult to accuse anyone of corruption as there are numerous bad decisions on a weekly basis involving all teams, but this one just seems beyond shite. I'm not going to suggest full scale deliberate, but it's almost like the officials have been asked to be lenient toward Sevco here - it's almost like they're trying to even up the McGregor decision (which has had no discernable effect on them anyway) in some way. You genuinely feel that they operate on a tit-for-tat level when dealing with the hun over the course of the season. Like there's a genuine fear over the repurcussions of each decision involving them.

Finally we have a decision that we can call on the Morelos decision from the first game of the season, which was extremely well covered and should be at the forefront of every referee's mind when looking at these types of incident due to its "new" (and correct) interpretation of the rules. They should know this inside out, and no ref should be making the same mistake that the ref did in our game (whether we like it or not, the rules are now clear and the red card was overturned).

There is only one reason that the goalie could have been red carded last night, and that is that the linesman (it wasn't the ref I don't think) has witnessed* the incident and seen the 'keeper hit the player. He's seen contact inotherwords. At that point, we then refer to the Morelos incident to reference what constitues a red card. There has to be intent to harm. If the assistant has seen the incident properly* then he absolutely must come to the inclusion that there is no intent to harm there. It is quite simply a brush off (and even that's being severely harsh) at worst. If the referee/assistant has seen the incident in full* then the correct decision for that foul would be a yellow card. That is the precedent set by the Morelos incident and any referee who doesn't know that given the profile of that incident shouldn't be refereeing in this country.

*What I think has happened is that neither linesman or referee have witnessed the incident properly and have made their decision based on the reaction of the player. It's the 21st century. No ref should ever be basing their decisions on the reaction of a player. Players (including even AFC) are taught to go down as part of their training. If you don't see the incident, you can't give the red card. It's exactly why the post-match panels exist - a ref can't be expected to see everything and it's a completely acceptable thing for a ref to say that he didn't see it.

Would VAR have solved this issue? I don't believe it would. The ref would have got a hundred slow-motion replays of an incident and would have based his decision on "contact". They genuinely don't seem to understand the rules.

I'd say that it's the worst decision I've seen this season. It's really bad.

For the sake of balance, I didn't think Brophy's incident was a certain penalty and his reaction to the touch from the hun makes it understandable as to why the ref would not give it (I wouldn't have).

Morelos went down like he'd been shot. Again. Like the funny gunslinger clip from Pittodrie the last time he played. So that's consecutively, within a dozen minutes of play that his reaction to two barely minimal contacts was a massive overreaction. His modus operandi changed however. Last night he went down like he'd been knocked unconscious whereas last time he took the writhing in total agony approach, the cameras showing that he was also looking towards the officials during his fakery to make sure his acting was getting his desired result.

This is cheating and there is nothing lower in the game. Diving to fake a penalty is bad but almost understandable given the pace of the game and the fine margins, particularly as you're anticipating a contact coming that the defender had the skill and foresight to withdraw from. This however is "simulation" designed to get a player sent off.

He's not the only one. Paul Pogba does it too but if referees were in any way interested in football and watched the game, they should be seeing the same truths that we all see and they should know that Freddo is a fucking cheat.

SAF got rid of Pogba despite his obvious talent. It's going to be interesting to see what Gerrard's huge management experience will do with Freddo. I suspect the scouse tink has zero integrity and doesn't mind his star striker's cheating. He may even spit the dummy and walk if the Rangers financial position is so bad that they need to sell him and whilst they can't possibly expect to prevent 10 in a row by selling their best player, SG won't have the intelligence to know the karma cancer that having a cheating cunt like this can bring, not to mention the suspensions that this season at least have cost them the league.

One thing is certain. Mark them down for an away win at Pittodrie if the cheat is playing. He can score goals and would be an even better asset for them if he can be educated but I reckon his character is too far gone. He's just a lowlife piece of scum and therefore a perfect match for the integrity-void that is Sevco.

Oh excuse me. I just assumed it was Morelos. I didn't watch the game and only saw the clip. But hey, don't they all look the same? My points still stand re cheating to get an opponent sent off, refs not being professional enough and Sevco being a bastion of bastards.

Was definitely Kamara and there is a video now circulating from a completely different angle which shows there was indubitably contact with his face. However it wasn't Bachmanns elbow it was his upper arm, looks intentional but Kamara drops like he's been shot and in no way was the contact violent enough to cause that. Yellow card and no more for me.

In view of the decisions regarding Morelos and McGregor earlier in the season where it was said that there has to be intent to injure or whatever weasel words used to get them out of jail, this red card has to be overturned.

Having seen the red card incident again from a different angle today, I’m going to buck the trend here and say I thought a red was fair enough - there was intent from their keeper and there was contact with the players face. The outcome of the match hinged on an earlier incident though, if Killie had got the penalty they deserved and gone 1-0 up it’s a whole different game.
