  1. Not a hatful that’s for sure, but you could flip it any way you like. I’d say last night you could look at the strikers themselves as much as the formation, or for that matter anything else you’d like to focus on. Did you think that the strikers played well enough? Did they take up great positions? Did they hold the ball and link up well? They have to create opportunities, not just wait for a great cross to drop on their head, or a perfect through ball to tap in.
  2. What have you been watching? We’ve played 4 games. The strikers have had chances. Wilson, Rodney and Proctor have all had chances. Only one has been taken.
  3. We did create chances though, OK non were tap ins. Wozz could’ve had a couple of goals. There were various shots blocked, including one cleared off the line. We had a couple of good headed chances that looked more like clearances than attempts on goal. Nobody looks like they’re going to burst the net at the moment.
  4. I was a bit surprised Proctor was subbed, he was doing OK One problem we have playing Rod and Wilson up top is that neither can head a ball. Even if the service was any good they ain't going to be winning too many headers against your typical Div 4 centre half. The other problem for DC is that the strikers seem to have no understanding of one another and are rarely close enough for any interplay. It's not just the strikers, as others have said, we look really disjointed as a team, alarmingly so at one stage, to the point we looked like we'd fall apart. Fair play to the lads for digging in and I felt we actually finished the stronger, Carlisle being happy just to spoil and waste time as the second half wore on. At the moment it's all a bit deja vu, the opposition playing the better football but we create the better chances, without taking them.
  5. Lots of talking points about the performance but I have ask how the hell the shot that came off their keeper and hit the post managed to stay out of their goal I’ve no idea. Talk about fine margins.
  6. I'd tend to agree, but Cass gives us that bit of extra time to allow Gibbo to regain full fitness, and in that time we might see a bit more from Cass to change our view.
  7. That’s a scurrilous accusion and he’ll be on here in a min to deny having said that.
  8. Cypriot club according to his wiki. We were tapping into all of our well respected international contacts at the time. Ahem.
  9. Coming back from injury I think. They probably see him getting more games by going out in loan. Would appear that he’s considered as a player for the longer term. Edit. Confirmed by the above post.
  10. It’ll just be how it’s written. Most season long loans have a recall clause. It’s just an insurance policy to cover an injury crisis at the parent club, or perhaps if the player doesn’t settle or doesn’t get enough game time.
  11. If I’m hearing the interview right, Clarke seems to suggest a player possibly coming in today, then contradicts this. Maybe I’ve interpreted it the wrong way. Either way he does say there’s a potential signing well progressed. Edit. Having listened to it again, sounds like a winger rather than a striker coming in. Possibly a loan rather than a perm.
  12. Have to say full credit to the club and Uni for the fanzone. I think this could be very popular with fans with younger families rather than sitting inside the stadium. If it really takes off we could need more space, plus maybe need to look at providing a bit more cover for when the weather turns.
  13. When we walked past the Lorne St at around 2:20ish there were small queues and, I think, more than one set of turnstiles were open. No idea what it was like after that as we were too busy pitching our tent on Dolly’s Lane.
  14. As I said, is this just a man in the pub, or, these days, a man in the queue for the turnstiles, type rumour?
  15. Is this concrete info? There was some suggestion on social media that Andrade was at the game Saturday, although I’ve no idea if this is true, false or in anyway connected.
  16. You might have no choice but to wait, unless you arrive at the ground really early…..Bring a packed lunch….. And a flask. Joking apart, welcome back 👍🏻
  17. I’ll be queuing at 5:30 for this one…..just in case. 😳
  18. I saw it the same way myself. Have to say it was slightly different elsewhere when we walked around the outside of the ground at about 2:15. The queues for the Lorne St and Bycars were small at that time, but when we’d got back to the Bycars at 2:30 the queue had increased massively.
  19. If Carlisle have any sort of an arial threat whatsoever then Legge must start.
  20. I haven’t read through this thread so apologies if this has been said, but at any one time we need one of Rod, Wilson or Proctor to be scoring. If any two, or all three, are hitting the net even better. All three had good chances yesterday, by far the better of the chances and if you’re having 15 shots only 2 on target is p1ss poor. Ok we’ve hit the woodwork but sometime soon somebody has got to start putting them away. Other than that game itself was a great contest I thought. Tranmere looked decent and themselves are probably a decent CF away from being a top side. Lots of positives from us, just lacking that killer touch, but the signs are there that we could have a decent season.
  21. How does his record stack up against our other strikers?
  22. For anyone who says that fans should get there early, 2:30 should be early enough not to have to panic that you’re going to miss kick off, as was our case in the Bycars, where over the years we’ve gone from 8 turnstiles, to 4 and now just 2. I think we’re stuck for operators as much as anything else as there was a job advert on the screen at one point. With this in mind, I would hope that fans are respectful to the turnstile operators, who currently, through no fault of their own, have a thankless task on their hands.
