Match Thread: Carlisle United v Port Vale


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Nonsense lads.

McKirdy arrived with a bad reputation and hasn't exactly set the world alight since, to the extent of being de-registered.

I rate him from seeing him play for Carlisle but I think Vale fans have been more than patient enough with a lad who has been described as a circus, barely contributed, and been de-registered from a very, very poor squad. From what I recall fans were rather excited about his signing and many (me included) were clamouring for him to play earlier this season. Clarke has openly accepted McKirdy's attitude needs extensive work. 

Stop making stuff up to have pops at fans at. Fans haven't wanted McKirdy to fail. Talks of 'agendas' against a player who has contributed little more to Port Vale than the likes of Trickett-Smith. Mad.

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

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 .

There’s no way on earth that DC starts shuffling the pack on a 6 game run. If we lose a game I expect to see a lot more changes, but until then, no chance. Swap Manny out and off we go. Only change I can see other than that is the Gibbo / Monty situation.

Finally started to look forward again to the matches and a shame our up turn in form didn't occur a couple of weeks before it did as the way some of the those in the play offs are performing we would have had a chance of sneaking in with an extra 2 wins.  

For me my team would be;

Brown

Gibbons, Smith, Legge, Brisley, Montano (if fit)

Worrall, Joyce, Conlon

Guthrie, Rodney

I think Clarke will go with Robinson and would not blame him after 6 on the trot, just feel that Guthrie has a bit more about him and away from home more likely to hold the ball up and looked really sharp when coming on recently.

That very, very poor squad has just won 7 games on the trot.

People were happy for him to fail. No doubt about it. 

He did fail though. He's got another chance and I hope he takes it

Nobody was happy for him to fail. What made me unhappy was how bad he was when he played against Stevenage and it seems that since DC took over he has done little more to get into the side. 
 

Massive waste of money, far bigger waste than say Manny, who although injured actually played far more than he has due to being decent of ability and mind.

Exactly this. You are pinpointing him against Stevenage . I've already mentioned that game. It was his first full start ? The entire team were totally abject that night, really really bad. Smith in particular was appalling. 

Rodney came on after 62 minutes and put the other 11 to shame with his cameo. 

Scapegoat is the word. I'll disagree with Joe this time and I'm not going to quote people or dig out quotes but there are people who will have a wry smile when he's released. It isn't all fans of course, a few people on here is not a reflection, neither are my views. 

Just find it strange in a totally abject display where the defence was a disgrace you recall the debut of Mckirdy more, why is that ?

He is not going be in the match squad DC already said he put him back in the squad try save his career and I hope that he does if he is as good as some folk make him out be he will have a good career elsewhere possibly at a club where is dislike of that club is not so apparent .

I mean if true that is why would you sign for a team who your family loathes ,and you ain't that fond of them as you have already told Vale supporter allegedly that you would never play for us .

To be honest that statement has come to be true and I have seen little evidence that suggests that's not the case. 

Shame on him if true and obtaining money deception .

A hoax .

Anyway back to this game 12.30 kick off let's hope we pass the ball to one another better than  v the excellent Morecambe .

Not in the reign of DC
You're a fool if you think that this squad isn't going to screw over DC at some point the way the majority did NA and JA. Very short term memory.

The Morecambe work ethic is one we must aspire to ALL season ! No big names just all eleven working hard. Looking at them against us and the Scunny game they always had two or three players chasing down the ball.

If we can keep up the intensity against Carlisle then we may be in with a shout but we certainly need to be much better with the ball, I just hope the last games poor ball retention was down to the conditions. If we are going to give the ball away so easily against these then our run will come to an abrupt end.

This game is going to be a good test for us ! If we can get a result I would be a very happy chappie.

At one point some weeks back I genuinely thought we wouldn't score more than one goal in any game, and wouldn't pick up more than a couple of wins over the rest of the season. Made me look a right cock-womble, and long may it continue.

Clarke's even starting to get a tune out of Guthrie.

This squad will not be around when DC needs a change.
