Match Thread: Carlisle United v Port Vale


Recommended Posts

A free week to prepare for the visit to Carlisle, game one of the Cumbrian tour including Barrow. Also a chance to view their Tuesday game at Newport. Will they have swapped PO places with the Exiles? I think DC would love to make it 7 wins on the trot, first since 1893 in the original Div 2, a few changes may be unavoidable but should not be disruptive. So, Fearless Vale on the road , a single goal will do at our hardest game left this season. Day and time to be confirmed to suit Royal Funeral.

That pitch looked really difficult to play on today very very dry and bobbly. I can't recall the last time I saw a match where the ball was in the air as much as that.  Bris and Legge absolutely 

Oyeleke hasn't helped Chesterfield out much today.........

How refreshing is it to actually have a manager that makes changes to formation and personal instead of realizing something isn't working but closing his eyes and hoping it suddenly works out? I'm tal

A fired up McKirdy with a point to prove to both managers to make an appearance?

Certainly would be  a test of DC`s trust in his ability not to be too fired up

It’ll be interesting to see with only 5 games to go if the manager plays some of the fringe players or if he’s already made his mind up about them.

We will come up against ex-Vale player Callum Guy who is now leading the way in League Two with 12 assists,Wozza is in second place with 10 and Tom Conlon is joint third with 8 assists.

Carlisle I'd say were on reflection of all home games witnessed (all bar harrogate even though I still paid for me lad watch it )were deserved winners over us looking back at that game while away in Somerset at rural retreat 1-0 with tall gangly lad outclassing us throughout ,forget his name but I think he scored one althoughcannot be certain ,and maybe should have added more as he led us a merry dance but not one id wish to attend .

Think that was the game when Askey dropped Joyce and Conlon and Whitehead had a few insipid shots at goal (all on target but wouldnt trouble a five year old keeper .

Team for this hope Montano is back .

Big ask 7 wins on trot think this is the game where the run ends ,think Carlisle are beginning mount a challenge for play offs and I think after last sat wherewe were not not in a footballing way good ,only in a stand there and defend way and Oyeleke has being sold (allegedly)do not see a suitable replacement for him in the squad at present to get us controlling the game so it's going be another game of defensiveness and kick and rush at a guess .

Who would I play I'd play this side it's got Oyeleke in it until its confirmed he was left the building .

              Brown 

        Smith Legge Brisley 

Worrall  Oyeleke(joyce) Burgess Montano 

                  Conlon 

           Cullen Guthrie 

I'd like see how we do without joyce and I'd like see if Cullen can play with Guthrie.

Rodney and Robinson Taylor are going be here next year lets see who else is I'd like see Burgess given a go with Oyeleke ,and Amoo I'd like see if he is going be part of next seasons squad after all the prior season he was scoring and creating so let's see if he can get himself going last 5 with some goals and assists if selected .

No Oyeleke gone so I know we see if any of the others can step up and do a fantastic job for them DC and the support  

Be interesting see who will replace him Jake Taylor's looked a bit off the pace in majority of games he has played in so I'd like see someone else,who well I ain't the manager maybe Gibbons could play as a attacking midfielder or move Worrall into Oyelekes position and bring Amoo in 

Be interesting to see who replaces him I know we being defending well but you need players who can run deep into oppositions territory aswell that's what Oyeleke was doing superbly five of last six games ,along with Montano our most influential players along with Worrall Conlon and Rodney the rest do not influence somewhat .

Let’s just put it this way. If McKirdy and any of the other duffers stay at the expense of Manny, I’d be fuming.

It won’t happen. Manny was the start of a large clearout and perhaps long overdue in many cases..

If McKirdy has shown enough in training to deserve a starting place, I'll back him. Why not give everyone a clean slate as Clarke obviously has? I can't see it as he hasn't even been on the bench recently, but you never know.

A large clearout is only possible if players are out of contract or find someone else who wants them.  Theo and Whitehead are under contract for another year unfortunately.

Theo has scored 33 league goals since January 2017 in 70 starts, 69 sub appearances, McKirdy has scored 10, 35 starts, 37 sub appearances. I would keep Theo and bin off McKirdy based on those stats.

We missed a penalty ( Pope ) at 0-0 and conceded within a few minutes. Carlisle were certainly nothing special at all . Had Pope scored we would of won that game. 

Though in the end they deserved it.

I think McKirdy is one of those players who gets better the less he plays. 

I'm not personally saying keep him, he's highly unlikely to be offered a deal . It would be unbelievable.

But I'll stand by what I'm about to say.

From the word go on here people wanted him to fail to prove they were right. Loads weren't even prepared to give him a chance.

The moment he put pen to paper there has been an agenda against him and a feeling of folk wanting him to fail.

I don’t understand that mentality at all that some people have. I’d rather go on a big rant about how someone is <ovf censored> etc. and then they play out of their minds. Looking a fool is a small price to pay for Vale winning.

DC has basically called Taylor out for having no grit. He needs that in his game and once he’s got a bit tougher he’ll be back to his old self. That game against Swindon way back when, Burgess and Taylor both got on the scoresheet, they looked a great pairing and the possible future nucleus. They still have that in them!
