31st Jan 2006 - BCI vs. Argash
BCI 0-1 Argash
football’s a funny old game.
They also say
that it’s a simple game complicated by fools.
How so, then,
that Tuesday night saw foolish calls over simple decisions, yet it wasn’t
For the first
time since the start of the 2004/2005 league, BC1 slumped to a second
consecutive league defeat, with a well disciplined Argash team helped
considerably by two incredible refereeing blunders.
In the first
half, following an untidy challenge on the edge of the area, the ball ricocheted
out to Mossy who steered the ball into the Argash net, only to see the goal

on the edge. Apparently he had been pushed in the area by Bunky’s striker.
So, what was the
free kick for then?
In the same
incident, from the free kick that should have been a penalty, the same player
decided he was right to have stood in the area after all and did so again to try
and block the kick. Decision? Play on.

been good enough to earn the three points. Disco was quiet in goal but the break
through never came.
after the game, allegations were apparently made by a representative of the
current league leaders that Bunky’s were ‘poor losers’ and that ‘all of the
refs. decisions had been correct’!!!
However, we are
pleased to report that this now seems not to be the case. The culprit was soon
identified and we can only assume the comments were taken out of context. In the
end, we’ll just put them down as the rantings of another funny old simple fat
Below follows that anonymous one-liners!
"It looked a
well balanced match, both teams cancelling each other out. Unfortunately, when
playing a less organised team, this simply means we were equally less
