Canít believe theyíre still banging on about it. Right or wrong itís happened. Are they like this every time a big decision doesnít go their way - in their opinion. The ref was swayed by 350 Town fans out of a crowd of 16,000? Come off it. Itís the last minute thing thatís really pissing them off.

Will it define their season? Of course not.

I'd be pissed off if it was given against us.
But it can't be undone. It'll all be forgotten by them come 3pm Saturday.

I think we are currently one of those teams I have often thought "how did they get a result out of that. Look OK but nothing spectacular. Why are they 5th"

Except we keep doing it. So its not down to blind luck! Maybe slow and steady can win the race.

It's definitely a debateable penalty but looking at the stats they didn't create a lot considering they were the better team

I would love to know what games you think we would or should have been pumped in.

It was could have been pumped in.

Given we factually concede the most clear cut chances in the league, take your pick.

I was there and believe we deserved a point.

I thought their first goal was offside BUT the play when a ball was played through and Williams turned on the goal line they should of scored and somehow missed and i believe that Bradford deserved to be one goal up at the break.

The Pen was a pen to me, the defender leaned across to chest or block it out and it hit his arm and changed the path of the ball.

A deserved point and i didnt feel either side deserved a win.

Bradford fan in the pub after was disappointed they didnt kick on and go for a second and i agreed with him, that at two zip it was probably all over but their goal threat was a bit soft (like ours!).

Draw away, win at home and you are up....especially with three autos up for grabs.

It's just a mathematical expression of "they should have taken their chances" which is a conversation we've all had for years. It's not to be treated as absolute gospel truth, but it's more useful than say, corners or possession when it comes to statistics that show how a game "went".

It's not perfect, but it tells a story:

This has us ahead, albeit mostly because of the penalty. But certainly says what we probably all thought watching the game, that both sides could and should have scored more than they did, and that STFC were hugely improved in the second half.

Yeah, if Ellis can replace FBT he definitely potentially has a good delivery on him. But that's a big if, as FBT hasn't done anything wrong so far in that position.

Ellis will replace Williams durung the WC where we should revert to a 442 and play Wakeling and Jephcott up top.

Apparently the ref has apologised to Bradford for awarding the penalty.

Love it!
