I like that new Law they have on sendings off - if you don’t see it but a player falls to the floor ask his teammates and don’t consult the assistant ref before sending the alleged offending player off. Their first was also not subject to any discussion, he just took the assistants flag as all the proof he needed. We’ll see more when the footage is available I suppose.
Anyway sarcasm over, we played well and should’ve got something. No reason to feel downhearted about the way we played. Adapted well to the change that was made after Tyler went off early. Thought Keenan and Lloyd demanded the ball & looked to use it intelligently. Dust ourselves off and go again.

100% correct.

Disgraceful officiating from the three clowns so called in charge today and perhaps the worst bunch of cheats we've played today, every time their players went to ground they made the nominations for best stunt men in the baftas ,I thought we more than matched them playing when proper footy when they did. Sword on Keenan quansah who I thought was our best player today today who played a solid game today.

It's not often Port Chat is united. It shows just how awful the ref and his 2 "assistants" were that they've created unanimity.

I wasn't at the game but am happy to agree with you !.

Hopefully we can provide video evidence if the sending off was a con job. On which subject, in cases where a player has been sent off and there is clear evidence of cheating, not only should the red card be rescinded, it should be transferred to the cheat, along with the 3 game ban. This would put a stop to it.

On the pitch, it was a pleasure to see Morgs, Philliskirk and Danny Lloyd playing together. For the first half hour Hereford barely got out of their half - I can't remember us playing so much football and being so dominant for a long time. We passed the ball properly and looked after it well. Quansah played really well - defended when he needed to and bombed on. Hmami was good again. Frustrating we didn't turn pressure into goals. A natural finisher today would have bagged a couple - instead we missed chances and also failed to gamble and get front post when crosses came in. After the goal, we reverted to type too much - too many long punts to nobody in particular. Even then, we still deserved at least a point - which is good doing when it's been 10 v 13 for a lot of the game.

Quansah may have worked hard and got up and down the line, but he is technically much poorer that the others in his control and passing and is not a natural in our new style of play

The decisions did not go Southports way today with some bizarre officiating, 2 main ones were the Goal, was it over the line, did Danny Lloyd assault their defender?? We had chances first half to be 2 or 3 up..the sad facts are another home defeat & yet another sending off.. Unless we start scoring at home & finish all 11 on the pitch we are in deep sh!t. Some excellent performances from Renshaw, Quansah, Hmami in particular & Arthur...apart from the terrible refereeing, a comment on the Hereford travelling contingent who were constantly looking for trouble, why bother travelling so far up North to behave in such a way, stay home we don't want you....another worrying defeat after the mid week win..

I wont comment on the corrupt officiating. But got to appreciate Keenan today, he always gives his all and stood out today, never stopped working

There was an incident by the half way line where their no. 2, Skinner, collided with a Port player. He rolled around, their trainer came on, the ref booked the Port player and gave Hereford a free kick. Skinner immediately got up, unharmed, turned to the Poplar Side fans and laughed. What a little shithouse.

ASP is right. We’ve heard far far too many hard luck/bad referee stories.
Fact is we have an absolutely dreadful home record, we leak easy goals, and discipline is very poor.
We have some good players but they are hopelessly inconsistent. Many months after getting a new manager and an influx of ‘better’ players, we are still in danger of relegation. We can’t string a run together and the few good results we get are immediately followed by another nightmare.
Can we beat Peterborough Sports? Perhaps, if we can keep 11 on the pitch and some of our players remember their shooting boots. But we shouldn’t be in this mess yet again.

This wasn't a hard luck/ bad luck referee story today...it was by far the most inept officiating for years (& that's saying something). Verging on looking corrupt. Disgraceful blatant cheating from hereford players and ignorant away fans.
We actually did fine considering

We should be able to overcome bad refereeing and sloppy defence if we scored a few more. But we’ve only scored 38 in 34 games, one of the poorest in the division.

Spot on post …our home record P17 W 5 D 2 L 10 absolutely shocking and this is why is totally why the Port are the mess we are in. 3 sendings off in 4 matches come on it’s unacceptable and players should really know better.Some of these officials can be miked up at this level ,assistants certainly have buzzer flags to alert the referee & don’t exclude the fourth official who can comment on incidents of alleged violent conduct .Added to this the ongoing problem of disciplinary behaviour of clubs gets known on the circuit and ours has not just not been good this season.

The matches away at Banbury and home to Rushall / Stortford are matches we cannot afford to draw/lose now to avoid the unthinkable .

JB alludes to lack of creativity in the forward line and not taking chances…surely Jordan Archer will play v Bacup , hopefully net a few and get into the side.This guy is a class act and needs to be in the forward line asap.

Thought we were talking about todays game which we should have got a point or points from as they didnt score the first goal they shouldnt have been allowed to go up the field to score the second as the goalie carried the ball over the goal line ,that should be a corner for us ,no one was offside when we had the free kick goal chance ,we scored a legitimate goal , the stand side linesman and the ref cost us the game today .

I don't know what on earth you mean. How can Danny Lloyd have "known better" today? He should have pred8cted that their #28 would cheat and the ref would fall for it?

If we were having players sent off for 2 footed tackles or dissent then I'd agree - but you can't blame the player when the ref is conned into sending them off.

Absolutely. It wasn't our player at fault. It was terrible refereeing and blatant cheating by another so called 'sportsman'
