Toothless. Will we score before Christmas? Not on this showing - and not surprising when we're creating nothing from midfield and our most creative player spends half his time in his own defensive third.

This system is killing us. It's more 5-3-2 and we have no width, no attacking full back play and nothing from midfield. 80 minutes virtually before the first shot on target. DC should change it now but, sooner or later, when we keep firing blanks, he will be forced to.

Can't wait for Gibbo to get back then we can go 433, end this nonsense of Wozza at full back and get some quality ball up front.

Really disappointing.

I’m not going to criticise the strikers as I don’t necessarily think they’re the problem, it’s the formation. The midfield 3 can’t seem to keep the ball and none of them are exactly creative. Add to that, the wing backs just aren’t working. There’s not enough players around the front 2, we played like an away side at times.

We were......"sloppy". Poor first touches, one touch too many, poor turn whatever and they were all over us. I know it's early days and I certainly expect us to have a good season but at the mo we are definitely disjointed and DC has to sort it out. We are solid, which is a good base to start with, but the midfield has to link with the forwards and we have to start making chances...it all looks a bit hit and hope at the moment.

Win at Stevenage now on Satdee....no bother!

Some of you lot are so negative. What happened to give it 10 games to develop the most effective system. It will come. AC/DC are taking all of this in too. With Gibbo to come back, Politic to work his way back, Captain Conlon in midfield and who knows, the new striker might be of Politic's quality. Keep The Faith (this means don't give up so easily and be what a true fan should be - Strong (in case anybody wonders what it means))

Too much expected from Worrall running  from right back to right wing. We’re too defensive and then when we get the ball out hold it up and then pass it back to defence. Too many high balls. If we’re going to describe Carlisle as an average team then I don’t know where that puts us. For me we’re playing similar to how we played three seasons ago. Still plenty of games left

Completely agree. Okay we haven’t won yet but with a bit more luck we have 6 points from the last 3 games instead of 2.

The team needs time to gel and we haven’t been outplayed in any game so far, so we have to be hopeful things will click and then pick up some wins..

We can't keep doing the same things and expect a different result. Shape is the problem, not personnel. For me, DC doesn't get a free pass for half a season.
