With Citys best chance of a play off place being an Ebsfleet victory over Concord what a shame it was abandoned with the fleet 2-0 up! Power Cut may have lost us that slim chance of play off. Crying or Very sad

There's a bit of concern about when the game can be played. Concord are playing next Wednesday I believe, so might have to be as quickly as this Thursday.

Was minutes after an Ebbsfleet player was sent off I think, so presumably that'll be rescinded.

i'm not sure it will be. didn't something similar happen a couple of years ago, when a key player was yellow carded in an abandoned game and it stood?

Not so sure I agree with the first post. I think the best result for us would have been for Ebbsfleet and Concord to draw, as that would have left Ebbsfleet 6 in front of us with both having 3 to play and Concord 1 behind with a game in hand and us still to go there.

I think it is a bit academic though, because if Ebbsfleet get 5 points from their 4 games and Havant 7 from their 5 they will both go on to 70. Even so, it is good that we still have a mathematical chance of making the play-offs at this late stage of the season, and it would be nice if a win at Gosport and other results going in our favour could take it into the final week.

Beating Gosport will be a tough task - they're absolutely flying at the moment. Hopefully won't be as depressing as that Tuesday night down there last season in the cup, which ranks in my top five of 'Worst days supporting Bath City'. More off the pitch than on it.

Of course. I'll have to draft this up soon. Worcester 0-7 as well. And pretty much any trip to Eastleigh, blergh. At least we'll have a year out from going there after their win tonight pretty much won them the league.

Ebsfleet Abandoned Empty Next Week

Post by A36 on Wed Apr 16, 2014 10:47 am

Looks like the game has been rearranged for Thursday of next week (April 24th). So, Concord will be playing Saturday (home to Dover), Monday (away to Sutton), Wednesday (away to Basingstoke), Thursday (home to Ebbsfleet) and Saturday (home to City). Reckon they'll need a holiday after that lot.

The problem with that would have been that Ebbsfleet are at home on Friday.

No, it won't (cards from abandoned games always stand, as the offence has still occurred).  As it was for a high challenge, I assume it was for violent conduct, which would mean that Corcoran will miss the entire play offs.

Did 'no' realise Ebbsfleet's game was brought forward to Friday.

Concord will be on their knees by next Saturday.

It is quite unbelievable given all the games in hand teams had on us that we are still there or thereabouts. Concord and Havant have ridiculous schedules yet the latter have been winning games left right and centre. Bath City players usually look tired and jaded on a tuesday if they have put in a shift in the saturday game.

I could make mine up now - in no particular order:

Worst
Grimsby (A) L 0-6
Bideford - I was mascot  No 
Alfreton H L0-3 (the 9 men night)
Supermarine replay
Pack the park day last season - big crowd in to then play like that.

Best
Play off final
Barnet
Yate
Gateshead Away first year in the conference - went by plane for 2 days and we scored late
The 5-0 win over those university lot in the promotion season

Didn't put the Grimsby cup game as I couldn't go  Mad

yes he does and so do i! (i find i have the time because i'm not fretting about formations and tactics...  Wink )

our favourite is probably the weather list - coldest game, coldest game in may, hottest game, hottest game in england (this gives junior a chance as he wasn't at torhout), windiest game, wettest game, foggiest game.

another good one is 'other sports you can watch over the fence while at a game' - eg cricket at welling, rugby at bridgwater, hockey at enfield, hastings reserves at st leonards

I am a reasonably optimistic person generally but I think our play-off chances are less than minuscule. I think you are deluding yourself if you honestly think we can do it, even allowing for floodlight failures and fixture pile-ups - which has to be the epitome of clutching at straws. We need to win all of our three remaining games (you see the problem?) AND we then need 3 other promotion chasing teams to collapse. I would absolutely love to be wrong. Here are some facts.

Max pts City can achieve: 69 (assumes 3 wins)
There are 4 other teams who could also get 69 points or more.
We have an inferior GD (at the moment) to all except Concord
The other 4 teams would need to do the following to achieve 69 points - and exclude us from the play off places

Ebbsfleet: 4 points from 4 games
H&W: 6 points from 5 games
Dover: 7 points from 3 games (inc Away to Concord Rangers)
Concord R: 11 points from 4 games (they have 5 games left but one of their games is against us)

Which 3 teams won't achieve this?
Remember, this assumes we win all 3 remaining games
Of course it is mathematically possible but I am talking probabilities here

I think we all kinda agree with you Roman Mike, but where theres life there's hope, etc, and it kinda keeps the season going. I'm not going to be devastated if it doesnt happen, as I might be if I were a Dover or certainly a Havant fan. I'd like us to finish strongly as teams that go up generally do it after some strong seasons.

D'oh I forgot about the bedford game. The only thing about that being that it meant we could win the league the next season.

Never been good at remembering specific games, but I will never forget Grimsby in the cup, and Yate to win the league. And I really shouldn't be able to remember the 2nd given the amount I drank after!

me neither - I tend to remember specific things - like Hector's goal against Darlington - or Phillips goal against Hayes in the same season (This because of Kaid's amazing run).

Off the top of my head - worst 5:
1. Bedford play-off defeat
2. Worcester 0-7
3. Dorchester play-off defeat
4. Gosport cup last season
5. Swindon Supermarine cup defeat

Dorchester I think was the worst I felt after a defeat because I knew we'd be a further level from the Conference and knew it wouldn't be an immediate return, was also after it felt like we'd turned it around. Relegation two years ago wasn't as bad two years ago because it was so inevitable, I said in August I'd be amazed if we'd stay up. Could have included countless cup defeats to lower league sides, Gosport felt worse because it absolutely hammered down and some of our 'fans' decided to have words with me during second half when I was taking pics. Swindon Supermarine was just galling.

Top five:
1. Yate
2. Woking
3. Barnet
4. Chippenham 4-2 when we were 2-0 down
5. Stoke

Stoke was my first ever away game. I didn't include Grimsby because although it was fantastic it was almost too straightforward, whereas Barnet how we won that I'll never know. The other three for obvious reasons, two promotions and a very unlikely win in the situation. Again I'm sure I've missed loads.

I also didn't include the Grimsby 0-6 because although in terms of the scoreline it was a hammering, I can't say it was much worse than a lot of defeats that season. In fact I thought we played worse against sides like Tamworth etc and lost by a much lower margin. At Grimsby we were on top for 20 minutes, lapse of concentration and that was that. One of their forwards, forget his name, they were on about how he was likely to get a move to a huge club, ripped us apart. Think injury wrecked his career.

Was a bit like when we lost at home to Fleetwood. Overheard someone say they left at half-time because we weren't trying. Pfft, utter nonsense. They were just miles better than us. Jamie Vardy will be in the Premier League next year with Leicester, on that afternoon he was understandably too much work for our defence who haven't played any higher than the Conference since.
