Exiles held at home as battle of Countys is a stalemate

First published in Sport

NEWPORT County were held 0-0 by Stockport County as they surrendered points for the first at Rodney Parade.

The Exiles will consider themselves unlucky having started and ended the contest as the superior side, but in truth they never looked at their best following on from two back-to-back defeats on the road.

Indeed, the visitors nearly snatched a winner at the death as they rattled a post, just as Jefferson Louis did in the first half.

Danny Crow had a late penalty claim rejected and the Exiles also had a goal disallowed for a push on the goalkeeper that looked extremely harsh.

I think it is highly optimistic to think another twenty five points will ensure safety.I think it is going to be closer to thirty five points.

Funny how comments change over the period of 3 games. Unbeaten after 5 and promotion candidates and now talk of relegation woes! Long season and I think some need to find common ground and not be over optimistic or over pessimistic!

Well, yes, it does last from August to April/May, so 10/10 for observational skills.

There was only one team ever going to win that game, but obviously the over achievement of 5 wins from 5 has altered some people's views.

The next run of games are, by this league's standards, all winnable so let's see where we are come the beginning of October when the cups start. If we're within striking distance of the play-offs that would surely be considered a good start.

Sorry The Argus will not publish it as letter.

Hillsborough.
With the conclusion of the independent panel to be heard on Wednesday with also an expected statement of ‘regret’ from the Prime Minister on the same day, I am calling my fellow South Walians to boycott The Sun newspaper (I use newspaper lightly) until it issues a full retraction and apology.
Many of you will be aware of the tragedy that was Hillsborough where 96 Liverpool football fans lost their lives in 1989. Four days after the disaster The Sun published a story claiming Liverpool fans beat up police, urinated on the dead and robbed the dying/injured. This story was contrived to deflect blame for the inadequacies of the Yorkshire Police force and laid the blame squarely at the feet of the supporters present that day.
The distress caused to the families who had already suffered enough cannot be fully explained in a short letter, but anyone with a shred of decency or who has lost loved ones would understand to have people defiled with such lies is a complete disgrace. The tribalism over what football team you follow should put aside, 96 football fans went to watch their team and did not return home to their families.
The Sun has been boycotted on Merseyside ever since that day and what I am urging the good people of South Wales is to follow suit. I understand that it is the biggest selling newspaper in the UK and many of you love and buy it religiously. I implore you to broaden your knowledge and buy a different newspaper and hit that excuse for a newspaper where it hurts (money).
If you are not aware of the Hillsborough/ The Sun I strongly recommend you do your own research, read the facts and make your own judgement and imagine it was your family that had suffered that loss.
JUSTICE FOR THE 96!!!

Not a football fan, and the loss of 96 lives is awful, however, trying to find someone/organisation to blame is not going to help anyone.

It was a disaster, too many fans not enough room.
