Sounded like the type of strong performance we have been waiting for, and a clean sheet in front of a big crowd, look forward to the comments. Chip Forum reckons they didnt turn up.

Chipp fans were claiming last week that our win had flattered us. Today’s result certainly flattered them as they were never in the game and we could have easily matched the four we scored at Hardenhuish.

I feared that we would badly miss Dyer but the defence were excellent and were rarely troubled.

We’ve had some tough looking fixtures in the past six weeks but what looks like an easier programme in the next six. It’s not too late to push for the play offs.

We looked more like a team than at any point this season. Players were aware of where their colleagues would be and hence the shape was much better. Tom Smith is getting into his deeper lying role and Holness had another good game alongside him. Jo Raines was just starting to pull the strings when he had to go off. Hope he is ok.
As in the away game it was difficult to pick out a MOM as all contibuted to the overall performance.

Can anyone throw any light on the Smith & Jones yellows?

I have since situations when the chip player could have seen red for his initial tackle.

I had to chuckle.....some half wit on the Chip forum says we benefited from not having to play on Boxing Day.
I assume he felt that our 4-1 demolition of his team on Boxing Day was so easy we didn't have to put in any effort.
Yes, I know what he meant to say, but it sums up the mentality.

Hungerford didn't play Boxing Day but Chip stuffed them on Tuesday.

I presume their player made a meal of it for that very reason. Tom Smith was in the thick of it but I understand Jones wasn't involved.

A few extracts from the Chip Forum makes me and hopefully all City fans   bounce  cheers  sunny  City 2 Chip 0 1f600 :

No complaints from me beaten by the better side. We did (assume means didn't) create or threaten that much.
Couple of decisions for both teams that others may argue about but I was too far away.
Fairly even game until 6 mins of madness at the end of the half. Unfortunately I mentioned that Will dropped a couple of crosses Against Hungerford...
...Well he had a shocker. Tried to see out a ball for a goal kick that was never going to run resulting in a blocked shot. That’s were the nerves started.
1st goal a deflection off Parselle onto the post, hits Will and goes in. Should have held it imho.
Then after some hand bags, we switch off to allow a free run into the box for the 2nd.
Thought Hanks was poor today, lacking pace a looked tired.. They were just stronger,  especially in Midfield.

Bath weren’t that good but better than us and deserved to win. They passed the ball better had players moving giving the player with the ball options and out fought and out thought us. Afraid to say l thought we were pretty clueless throughout.

For most of the first half there wasn’t that much between the teams apart from what happened in the 6 minutes of injury time. But the second half I expected us to come out and have a real go at them and really take the game to them. But it didn’t happen. They looked a bigger stronger and more organised side. It showed that they had a rest on Boxing Day. But that shouldn’t make as much difference as it did.  But the best team has won both games. Losing twice to Bath and playing pretty poorly both games is hard to take. Doesn’t get much worse than a double defeat by our neighbours. They wanted it more. And it really showed  😩


Just one downside from the game - Why did so many attend...that ruined my "Guess The Gate" compo entry, but I was nearest;  could I have a point for that please? Laughing

I don't think the initial challenge by the Chippenham player deserved a red card and a yellow was fair. Jones stood over the 'stricken player' presumably appalled by his reaction. I couldn't understand why he was booked as he didn't appear to get involved in the following fracas. Smith and their 13 were two of many who were and I guess the ref wanted to even things up. IMO Smith was therefore unfortunate to be singled out but their 13 should have seen red as he seemed to be the main culprit in starting the nonsense but presumably wasn't seen to be violent.

Probably a minority view, but despite the above I thought the ref did ok yesterday.

Where were you viewing the incident from out of interest?

This is the Chippenham manager's view - I think Mark needs to give the interviewer a few lessons!

I rarely watch opposition interviews as worry that I’ll become like the Harry Enfield ‘Only me!’ character when I have flaws myself.

I went to a game at Tunley today. Inside the opening 10 minutes a striker went for a header for goal, could see he wouldn’t reach it and clearly punched the ball. Ref spotted it and cautioned him. I spoke to the ref at half time and pointed out the same thing happened at Twerton. He knew - he was at the game. He thought the referee got that wrong but was otherwise pretty good. That’s from a neutral.

The bottom line for me is that we don't expect players at NLS level to control the ball like Messi or finish like Lewandowsky so we shouldn't expect the officials to be of FIFA standard. The best progress to the top as in most professions. We don't crucify players for making bad errors for the next six months but the officials are expected to be perfect.

I don't think I maybe wrong that Santos who committed the original foul was booked at all

Yes, I think you’re right. Makes Jones’ card even more surprising.
