The pressure of getting to this weeks game starts of a Friday night when I leave for work at 5PM, having to stay overnight in Brussels and not starting work till the morning of the game, Everything has to fall in to place with the main worry being will the 12.52 from Brussels arrive on time in London. The much shorter journey from St Pancras to St Albans City and as it happens everything runs to time and after a quick drive from the station, yes I know its quicker to walk but the equipment weighs a ton and its raining. Car parked and walk into the ground just as the Ref blows for the kick off . I Sit down not quite got the camera out only to look up to see Eastbourne score, Watching the game I do wonder why the Refs at this level seem to take the easy decisions to give a clear penatly should have been given on Ben Martin (The Eastbourne player pulling his shirt from behind) only for the Ref to turn around a give the foul in favour of the Eastbourne defender. then every time a Eastbourne player hits the floor its a foul, seems to me at this level all you need to do is go down with a scream and the Ref will blow his whistle, The linesmen gives the defenders the benefit on the offside decisions when clearly not keeping up with play. Not saying all the decisions are wrong but far too many are at this level are. Still City carry on with the same attacking football that over the last 6 weeks has seen our fortunes change and its not long before McDonald pulls us level and from then in only one team is going to win this game. Hardly any Eastbourne fans are in the ground so a crowd of 650 or so seems to be a good turnout.
Now on to Hemel.
