No passion, no finishing, poor defending, no hope. Are there two poorer teams in this league? We can only pray]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/mk_dons_highlights_921150/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/mk_dons_highlights_921150/index.shtml Sun, 09 Dec 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Kennedy and loanees]]> Good news about Kennedy and nothing unexpected about Nadesan and the others. Can't wait to get Kennedy back because he's always worth the odd goal. Replacing Nadesan with a similar loanee is a gamble but sensible in the current financial circumstances]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/kennedy_and_loanees_920925/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/kennedy_and_loanees_920925/index.shtml Wed, 05 Dec 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[MK Dons board]]> Turns out they have a soft spot fo us. A bit of reminiscing and comparison - worth a look over the next couple of days]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed13/mk_dons_board_920911/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed13/mk_dons_board_920911/index.shtml Wed, 05 Dec 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Lincoln goals]]> Not exactly highlights, it makes it look like we weren't in the game. Poor, poor defending for both goals though. Some of our players looked like they couldn't be bothered]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/lincoln_goals_920687/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/lincoln_goals_920687/index.shtml Sat, 01 Dec 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Previous encounters at Lincoln]]> A few highlights of previous encounters. This one's worth it for a view of an old-school referee. From 1989]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed13/previous_encounters_at_lincoln_920609/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed13/previous_encounters_at_lincoln_920609/index.shtml Thu, 29 Nov 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Notts County highlights]]> Turgid, unprofessional, failure to turn domination into goals followed by the usual capitulation, conceding a goal, before finally scoring. Two points dropped. End of]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/notts_county_highlights_920504/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/notts_county_highlights_920504/index.shtml Tue, 27 Nov 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Notts County forum views.]]> .on tonight's game. They're not very confident]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/notts_county_forum_views_920444/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/notts_county_forum_views_920444/index.shtml Mon, 26 Nov 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[FGR highlights]]> Extended, if you can bear it. The team's confidence drains away if they haven't scored after 20 minutes. It didn't help that we were chasing the game for the first 75 minutes and only looked dangerous until the end. No spirit, no passion, no idea]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/fgr_highlights_920326/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/fgr_highlights_920326/index.shtml Sat, 24 Nov 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[FGR local press view]]> 1-1 they reckon. They have a strong squad so they'll not be easy to beat. I reckon we'll need an early goal or we'll watch the confidence drain away at BP - again]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed13/fgr_local_press_view_920266/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed13/fgr_local_press_view_920266/index.shtml Fri, 23 Nov 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Swindon highlights]]> That went well. Four well-taken goals to kill off the game after Swindon were our equals for much of the first half. For once, we took our chances and they didn't. Our problem is the number scored by loanees. .]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/swindon_highlights_919940/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/swindon_highlights_919940/index.shtml Sat, 17 Nov 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Swindon fan's Vlog]]> No goal action, but worth a look for their fans' reactions as the game went on. Fair play to the lad for putting it up. .]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/swindon_fans_vlog_919913/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/swindon_fans_vlog_919913/index.shtml Sat, 17 Nov 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Swindon fans are.]]> .Bemoaning their lack of goals. Is it me, or have I seen this on quite a number of opposition team boards this season? Who's for a 4-4 today then?.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed13/swindon_fans_are_919870/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed13/swindon_fans_are_919870/index.shtml Fri, 16 Nov 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Stoke stiffs highlights]]> Worth it only for the goals. Apart from that - a practice match. We now need to have delivered to Brunton Park a barn door, a cows arse and a banjo. I didn't go]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/stoke_stiffs_highlights_919773/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/stoke_stiffs_highlights_919773/index.shtml Wed, 14 Nov 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Newport GoPro highlights]]> We don't get these all the time but they're always welcome as you get a different viewpoint and hear the players. Sloppy goalkeeping by their lad. .]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/newport_gopro_highlights_919322/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/newport_gopro_highlights_919322/index.shtml Sun, 04 Nov 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Chris Lumsdon's article]]> Stuff that those of us who read the boards are well aware of. But there are folk in the County that don't, they are just run of the mill supporters who may not know that things aren't as rosy as they seem. They may have heard rumours, now it's in print.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/chris_lumsdons_article_919243/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/chris_lumsdons_article_919243/index.shtml Mon, 29 Oct 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Yeovil highlights]]> One of the poorest games I've seen in years, featuring two of the worst sides. We should put sides like Yeovil away every week but confidence is low and even the basics suffer. And anyone got a barn-door so they can practice?.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/yeovil_highlights_919213/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/yeovil_highlights_919213/index.shtml Sat, 27 Oct 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[The Trust dilema]]> Nothing new here, so what do the Trust actually contribute, except for acting as a rubber stamp for whatever the Board want. Look again - we go begging to EWM and struggle to fund a simple shelter. They should be ashamed to be associated with this lot]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/the_trust_dilema_919198/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/the_trust_dilema_919198/index.shtml Sat, 27 Oct 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Sorry Nigel, it doesn't add up]]> NC can't be serious. If the playing budget won't be cut but gates are going down, how will the books be balanced? At the start of the season he told me what the gates had to be and they're already falling short. So I'm going to ask him. Watch this spa.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/sorry_nigel_it_doesnt_add_up_919182/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/sorry_nigel_it_doesnt_add_up_919182/index.shtml Fri, 26 Oct 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Lincoln highlights]]> We, it had to be done - weren't we all expecting a drubbing? A makeshift side, centre-forward at centre-half, several kids in, what could possibly go right? Pride seemed to have taken a dent and it had to come back - and it did. Well done to all concerne.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/lincoln_highlights_919121/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/lincoln_highlights_919121/index.shtml Tue, 23 Oct 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Macclesfield highlights]]> Why is it that our defenders manage to look like they're stuck in glue? The balance of the side is all wrong, but that's what happens when your small squad picks up injuries week on week. We need some of them back, or reinforcement, very quickly. .]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/macclesfield_highlights_919091/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/macclesfield_highlights_919091/index.shtml Mon, 22 Oct 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Sunderland highlights]]> They had far too much pace for us and were sharper to the ball. Their second was a great strike. Collin could have done better for the first but pulled out a couple of great stops and helped set up our goal]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/sunderland_highlights_918951/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/sunderland_highlights_918951/index.shtml Wed, 10 Oct 2018 21:00:00 +0000
