Falkirk vs Raith Rovers


Recommended Posts

The first yellows for both benedictus and gomis are very harsh. The second ones the easiest decisions you’ll ever have to make. 

Red for telfer seems extremely harsh but he didn’t even attempt to play the ball so get him to f**k anyway, coward

Telfer brought down Hendry when he was heading towards his own goal.

Last week Fordyce hacked down Victoria when he was heading towards the Airdrie goal and had the red rescinded.

If your club has the money, I reckon you could challenge the yellow because the decision making by the SFA is so fucked up.

Out of interest, who took the armband from Benedictus? That remaining Rovers squad doesn't exactly have an abundance of obvious candidates.


Aye it was Regan Hendry, Dingwall got it from Benedictus and just kind of chucked it at Hendry.

Don't think Telfers was a red, but he had absolutely no need to make that challenge at all. 

Benedictus and Gomis both deserved their second bookings.  Bene was daft, one of those where he didn't need to bring the lad down. Gomis was at a later point in the game so understand it more.

This.  Having now seen the highlights, Telfer shouldn’t have been sent off.  There’s no attempt to play the ball but there’s nothing dangerous in it whatsoever.  It’s a yellow, nothing more.

agree on the other two as well - Benedictus was stupid and panicked.  Gomis did what he had to after being put in a crap position by his teammate.  Both second yellows merited.

There’s no complaint from Falkirk at all when that red card comes out. Doesn’t look like much but it isn’t the best angle, Telfer blooters Hendry with the ball long gone, referee with the best view in the stadium. If he’s caught him anywhere above the ankle it’s a clear red card.

Don’t think we can tell for sure either way.

First game this season I've seen any fight and desire from the team so hopefully a sign off things to come under Miller and McCracke.
Thought both teams at least tried to play decent football in spells despite the referee trying to be the main man.
Was glad to be going in at only a goal down at halftime time, Raith never had to many clear cut chances but feared the worse going down to ten men so early on. Second half we came out flying and deserved the equaliser and played some decent stuff but credit to Raiths defence they dug in deep and generally defended well and we had a few half chances but the ball never seemed to break kindly. Thought the raith boy should have buried his chance at 1-1 when he danced passed 3 players then hit it wide.
Enjoyed the game as it had a bit of everything in it and a decent atmosphere.
Think come may it will be between us and Raith if Miller and McCracken can get the same level of desire out our journeymen every week.
