First @guildfordcity League Game

10/08/2021 Farnham Town FC v GCFC

The first league game of the season was away to Farnham Town. A 0-0 draw, but anything than a bore-draw. Guildford hit the woodwork twice, the home keeper kept them in the game for the first 60 minutes & the City keeper returned the compliment in the last 30. Not sure if it is in the genes of footballers at this level, but every decision, even blatant ones were questioned by Farnham players, their player leaps highest & clearly heads the ball, they claim their throw/corner, their player kicks the ball out of play, their throw in. It is getting to the stage were we need [like in cricket] penalties for over appealing. I am not sure if it is attempts to cheat or if the players are actually stupid. I mean a left back and a goalkeeper, disputing an off-side call from the other end of the pitch! WTF! Pleased to say that I have seen very little of this from the City players over the last few years, long may it continue.
