It took about two minutes from the ball hitting the net to the goal being disallowed. My own opinion is that it was offside, but the manner of the decision was plain bizarre.

Re the net - the keeper pushed Young through the net, which caused the altercation with the fan.

Not sure about two minutes, but it was a bloody long time, so it could have been. Yes, it seemed utterly bizarre. It seemed very telling to me that neither the Braintree supporters nor the players seemed to think anything was wrong. Only after the lino raised his flag a minute or two later did any of them start arguing about the goal. A very strange incident.

Re. the referee, what summed up his performance for me was his behaviour at the end of the game.

The ball was down at our end, I think it might have been with Moore and the ref was also at that end of the pitch. It was cleared towards half way, the ref blew his whistle and started to scarper just like that South African rugby ref did in the rugby World Cup. It looked as if he thought it was either the last match of the season or there was going to be an invasion. He was well on the way to the 'tunnel' when he had second thoughts and stopped. The linesmen then caught up with him, he waited a short while and then marched them off to a chorus of boos from the normally somnolent Bristow's Bench. I'm not sure if many players got to shake his hand as is normal after a game.

Make of that what you will.

Thanks for your view Merse. Be assured there was no communication between referee and assistant referee. Another five seconds and the game would have re-started. If it had been on match of the day there would be a public enquiry over it.

Well done today - have been to last two games and back to Charlton (my local team) today. Have seen incredible potential against Aldershot and Lincoln that went unfulfilled or was denied by cheating and crap refereeing. Sounds like there was less of that today and the team got to show what they are capable of. If only the lads had played like this against Ferriby and Maidstone, which I also went to. Hoping for wins in next 2 games because it's going to take at least 4 points to stay up now. I don't want Lincoln to be my last away trip to a half decent club for a Torquay match. Got to be back next season in this same league, and that battle started today and was well won.

It was a great win today, but any euphoria I felt was knocked out of me on hearing Woking and Solihull won, certainly didn't expect the latter.

Not by radio mic? You have no way of telling that and it is the preferred method of communication these days especially over contentious issues like players being active and passages of play as in Law 11 ~ Offside.

There were four attendances greater than the Gulls' today: 2880 at Maidstone (v Boreham Wood), 3770 at Gateshead (v Lincoln City), 3857 at Aldershot (v Dover Athletic), and 4091 at York (v Wrexham). Shows how attendances can be affected by a club's position in the table, or the position of the opponents in the table, and/or the geographical proximity of the opposing club. And what the size of Torquay's gate might be if we were challenging for the play-offs..

Presumably the majority of the Gateshead crowd were from Lincoln. Gateshead normally struggle to reach 1000.

There were 2,486 Imps fans at the dreadful GIA......


There were also the boosts from the numbers of travelling 879 Wrexham and Dover fans yesterday, although Dover only had 265 at the Rec which is a mere hundred miles away ~ Braintree brought just 33; I bet even Boreham Wood took more than that sorry total to Maidstone!

There WAS radio mic contact between them, I didnt actually see a flag at any time, maybe wrong, but seemed an
incredibly long conflab before disallowing the goal

It looked to me like there was radio communication too. In which case why did the ref give the goal and let the players retreat to the half way line and prepare to kick off? It looked like the idiot linesman "reflected" for a very long time before the fairy in his head told him to wave his flag. It was a farce, thank God it didn't matter. The quality of officials in this League is pitiful.

No worse than the quality of football or (in some cases) stadiums though
