Haringey Borough v Arsenal Reserves London FA Cup

Well it had been a long time since I had seen a game abandoned. Clearly the referee took the best decision and I actually think he should have done it earlier as the game was clearly out of control.  I do think it is a shame that incidents like this happen and it clearly stupid from the players.

At the end of the day, it is just a game of football so mouthing off,  pushing, shoving and punching opponents is not clever as well as throwing a bottle of water to the people in the stand. To be fair, those in the stand did not cover themselves in glory either by inflaming the debate instead of calming things down. And I have to mention people coming on the pitch as well, that was crazy.

Let’s see what the referee and the London FA decides but if there is a replay they should consider having 2 referees behind the goal and a 6th referee to watch out what is happening everywhere around the pitch.

Star player : none


An interesting news on the London FA Website here :


MSA Ladies already qualified for the final. The opposition for the semi-final getting a L. Quite a sad way for the Arsenal ladies reserves to loose a trophy, they fought hard (!) to win against Millwall last season.
