to me that sounded like truly woefully inept refereeing

Could this sending off be the pattern for the season for other teams, rough us up a bit to try get players sent off or stop us playing football. If it is it's seems to be working so far.

It was tried last season. Chester, Bromley and N. Ferriby spring to mind.

I've just looked at this refs stats. It appears that he refereed no less than FIVE Torquay home games last which I find astounding.

Just seen a video of the sending off. First impression AND I COULD BE WRONG looks like a blatant elbow from Norwood and a deserved straight red

With all the supposed fire power we managed zip! For me, as long as he's fit, Cook should start and I would play with with Alibi, not Norwood. I would leave Hughes on the bench as I dont think he offers much, no creativity. Sounds like the usual NL standard referring but we have to rise above this and make sure they have no bearing on results, the way to do that is to make sure you score!!

I haven't seen it but the Torquay local radio said it was for deliberate handball?

Away from our game, Wrexham got 6100 fans, although they lost.

I've seen it and it looks a pretty blatant elbow. As much as we'd like to blame the referee utterly pathetic discipline and the selfish braindead actions of two players have probably cost us a win.

What was promising at least is that even with 9 men we sounded like the better team whereas last year we crumbled after every sending off.

Looking on the brightside it rather forces theselection of Cook and we will see hlow the defencecopes without McNulty....

Ref was poor but disappointing lack of discipline from some individuals has cost us. Fortunately we got a point !

it was on the TRSA Facebook page. Someone was streaming the 2nd half. Skip to 39 mins. Think Ian Goodison at Bradford is the best I can explain it

Norwood red card could be blessing in disguise. I'm really starting to think he's part of the problem rather than the solution to our present plight.

Misses too many chances and has other flaws in game.

I'd have started Cook and Alabi.

Whatever the issue is between Mellon and Cook it needs to be sorted. Put egos aside and start Cook for the benefit of the club.

I didn't go but I've said it many times, I'd shelve Norwood, and the red reinforces my stand point. McNulty is past it in my opinion too. Lots of games to come up in a short space, points a point.

I think Cook & Alabi could be a dream team. Give them a bit of decent service and the goals will pour in. I also think Hughes is part of the problem, no creativity and caught in possession far too often. Norburn, Kirby and Jennings in midfield for me.

Thanks. Yes looked to me like a blatant elbow.
The amazing thing was the fans then chanting his name when he had cost us any hope of getting the 3 points. Him and McNulty need moving on.
