[ 19 Nov 19 ] GILLS v Sunderland Match Thread (FA Cup R1R)

Postby Garawa » Sat Nov 16, 2019 8:28 pm

- Sunderland have 1 win in their last 6 matches in all competitions. On the road, they have lost 4 and drawn 1 of their last 5 away games scoring just 1 goal in the process.
- Sunderland have scored 11 goals in their last 3 visits to Priestfield and have won all 3 - Gills 1-4 Sunderland, Gills 0-4 Sunderland and Gills 1-3 Sunderland
- The Gills have drawn 5 of their last 9 FA Cup Round 1 ties. The previous 4 replays have seen 2 wins and 2 defeats and the last 2 both ended 4-3 (a win and a defeat).
- The Gills have previously met same league opposition in Round 1 of the FA Cup 13 times. 6 of the meetings were won whilst 4 were lost.
- The Gills have played 63 home ties in FA Cup Round 1 with 34 of them ending in victory and 16 in defeat. The Gills have scored 118 goals and conceded 72 in those 63 games.
- Before Sunderland, the Gills had only met same league opposition once in 16 rounds over the previous 9 seasons - Bristol City in 2014/15 (1-2). Before that, the next meeting was against Southend in 2009/10 (3-0).


19.46 Kick Off [ 4 - 1 - 3 - 2 ]

20.25
The Gills have had the better of the half and have caused the Sunderland defence some trouble but haven't tested the keeper sufficiently.

20.33 Half time 0-0 (47:02)

20.47
The second half kicks off.

21.00
Ogilvie is sent flying in the penalty area and appears in quite a bit of pain but no penalty is given!

21.15
Having barely troubled Bonham, Will Grigg flashes a driven shot across the face of goal and narrowly wide of the post.

21.36
Sunderland throw bodies on the line as the Gills have the ball bouncing around the goal area.

21.37 End of the second half 0-0 (96:06)

21.41
Extra time kicks off.

21.44
Two Sunderland players on yellow cards two minutes apart, commit strong challenges (one from behind) but both get a final warning from the ref.

21.54
Max Ehmer hits the face of the crossbar!

21.56
GOAL! Gillingham 1-0 Sunderland: Hanlan

22.07
Sunderland make their 4th substitution of the game whilst the Gills have still made just the 1.

22.16 FULL TIME 1-0 (129:23)
Hanlan wins the tie with the games only shot on target in the whole of the 2 hours and 9 minutes! They face a home time against Doncaster in Round 2.

Looks like it is going to be the perfect night to go to a footie game, and especially to see the Mighty Gills playing a team like Sunderland, I sure hope the fans turn out by the thousands to watch the Gills get a win, I for one will be on the "scrolls" reading the game, somehow not as exciting as hanging from the floodlights at the Rainham end as it was back in 1963, lol, with 15,000 people watching us whip Burys butts in the Cup the night the flood lights came on for the first time, (what happened to them) lol, Bury not the light's.
I have just looked at footballstadiumsinfo.co.uk there is a great picture of the stadium taken from the air. Whats the small piece of land behind the Rainham end used for, and the large grass area to the North East of the Stadium, is that where the new stadium ( haha) would be built ?
I guess I as much as anyone ,if not more so are very quick to criticise Scally but I was looking at that 1963 season just now teams The Gills played in 1963, that have gone on to bigger and better things and teams that are ??

Brighton and Hove Albion.


Bradford Park Ave
Southport, Hartlepool,
Halifax, Mr. L's favorite team Torquay,
Chester, York, Barrow,
Workington, Chesterfield,
Aldershot and Stockport.
Makes you wonder, where would we be now, which road would we have taken if we had got an owner that invested heavily in the Gills, or if we got an owner that didn't, or if we got one that just kept us afloat with not a lot of interest, just wanted to say he owned a football club , then I wonder where we would be today ? My guess, probably in Division 3 in about 14th place hoping we beat Sunderland , yes THAT Sunderland, in a FA Cup replay, and praying we avoid relegation again.

I tell you something, reading Mr G's play by play commentary today really was about the most insight full or should I say spiteful thing that has happened to me in weeks.
Thanks for that today little buddy, the info from the first half alone, the depth and analysis of each play kept me on the edge of my seat all though the halftime period, amazing commentary ,just bloody amazing. Well done keep up the good work.

Three Thousand five hundred ,how disappointing, I thought he crowd would have been in the 6 or 7 thousands what did everyone stay home to see Wales play Hungary ?
So answer me this, if the price of admission had been say 12 pounds, 9 pounds and 6 pounds would we have had 6 or 7 thousand there tonight ?

WWWOOWWW HHOO Gills win,Gills win , thousands and thousands of people around Kent missed what sounded like the most exciting game of football for years at Priestfield, I guess i am very mistaken because I thought this was the FA CUP, but it appears with this much enfuziasms from the team and fans it turned out to be a Kent Senior Cup game.

It was dull Gillsfan. But professional I guess. 3 wins in a row and 3 clean sheets, lets make it 4 at Wimbledon.

I apologise with all my heart,lol, it never crossed my mind that an FA CUP match, infact any match in professional football could be this boring. I was ready to rip on everyone of the fans that went to see Gillingham play Shrewsbury at Wembley back in 2009, call them all out by name, publicly humiliate them , (well except the dead ones) , thank goodness I didn't, lol. Never mind round 2 coming up, another win for the GILLS, and then Manchester United in Round 3.

A good team performance.Not many chances,but as a team we battled well and defended very well.One goal always looked like it would be enough for either Team.Delighted we have gone through after extra time,it was worth braving the cold.We’re building a nice bit of form.

Braving the cold, Braving the cold, it was 20 degrees below freezing, snow was falling in Chicago when I watched a game the weekend before last, and when that game finished I switched channels and watched the 3 pm game on NBC Sports, lol.
I didn't realize it was cold last night , the way the weather looked on the Weather Channel it looked a nice evening for footie. Of course once anyone fell asleep during the first half not realizing the game had already been on for 25 minutes, I guess when they woke up on the 90 minute mark wondering what, how , who and where the hell am I ,it felt very chilly, lol.
