The midfield worries me, and up to a few weeks ago I’d say that’s where we were strongest and was a huge factor in out upturn in form. I cannot stress enough just how good Sowerby was, since he took up that role in a mid 3 we got on top of so many games, he’s been immense. As good as O’Hare and Scougall are technically, I felt we’d lost something and weren’t anywhere near as strong. Maybe it a devitt moves back into midfield it might give us a bit more, but it’s still a worry.

I think an inform Crewe will roll us over. 2-0.

Yes, I agree that it is all doom and gloom for us now and we will lose every remaining game this season and we will get relegated next season and go even further down the season after into the abyss of Non-league football with us ultimately going bust.

All because we no longer have Sowerby.

How old are you? 8?

You sound like a fucking 8 year old.

Blowing a point completely out of proportion to make you sound clever when in fact it makes you sound like a complete and utter fucktard.

Big game for us.

I dunno why but I can imagine us going down there to just sit tight and hope for a break or two.

Crewe 0-1 Carlisle.

For fucks sake Crewe!

After not looking after your pitch properly which meant no football for us for 2 weeks, now your club votes against having the match tonight live on ifollow.

I was originally going to go to the day match before it got called off but I could not make it tonight so I thought id watch in on ifollow, but no I can't now because someone running your club is a bellend.

Such a pivotal game this is for us. A win could put us in 10th and keeps alive hopes catching the clubs in and around the play offs. A loss after what happened at Macc I fear would massively effect confidence, and were the sort of team that seen to rely on confidence. I'd have preferred to play almost anyone bar Carlisle, as they seem to have got our number over the last couple of years, and they are one of the only clubs with better form than ourselves.

Why has he started with the poor starting lineup again from our last match?

Gonna be a long half, definitely settle for the point, especially with the other fixtures currently going our way.

Crewe's manager is a twat.

I'm disappointed with the team after this one and not impressed with how we went about it. Saturday is a must win now.

FFS, sounds like they’re trying every trick in the book to get the ref to dish out some more cards.
Oh mate. Mate! Your team was on self destruct, don’t blame us. Blame whoever came up with the barmy tactic of targetting Perry Ng for winding up only for it to back fire. It was a pretty blatant and silly kick out by Devitt.

It was a tough game, I think it’d have been easier without the sending off as Carlisle were all over the place till the sending off. We shot ourselves in the foot (standard) by going gung-ho prior to the equaliser for some reason but thank god for Shaun Miller showing his face.

We were getting absolutely arse fucked before the red card anyway. No control in the game at all, just highlights the fact that we’ve gone from having a dominant solid controlling midfield to an absolute mess.

The signs are not great. They weren’t great on Saturday.. Hopefully Pressley can find a solution otherwise we can forget playoffs.

Your antics at Vale Park where exactly what your moaning about tonight!
I ain’t moaning about anything mate. And I did not produce any antics at vale park. But if you are talking about the red card at yours, then theta was his own stupid fault for needlessly diving in like that.

Bad night for us, especially MK scoring late on. The cruel irony of Miller getting the winner when I've still got him as my profile pic celebrating against Crewe :sad: Devitt will be a miss but he's been less effective recently being played out of position, would like to see Cullen come into the starting eleven.

Have to beat MK as far as I'm concerned, can't see us getting much from Colchester and Newport away. Haven't looked convincing under Pressley, only the second halves at home to Cheltenham and Exeter I'd say we've looked decent.

A brilliant and thoroughly deserved 3 points. Carlisle fans can have no complaints with the officials, yes they were useless but you were lucky to get away with as much as you did. Number 3 for Carlisle, what a twat.

I say this in the 2nd half of every season because it always takes us so long to find our feet, but we’re better than anyone in this league. Plenty of games left, playoffs wouldnt surprise me.

Wow 6 wins in a row at home. We're taking apart some of the best teams in the league also. Whilst it was 11 Vs 11 we destroyed Carlisle. To quick and too inventive for them. Then Devitt stupidly got himself sent off for kicking put at Ng. Yes Ng made a meal out of it, yes Artell jumped round like a clown. But the ref had no choice imo. Carlisle only had one man to blame and that was Devitt. Ng was brilliant, top class. Carlisle tried every trick in book to get him sent off but he rose above, and put another solid performance in. Him being Man of the match was top class banter also. I thought Carlisle going down to 10 probably helped them, as they just reverted back to what they've always seemed to be good at Vs us, sat in deep with one man up top and tried to break fast. Rather than have a go like they did early and got took apart.

But great performance, much deserved win. I can't see anyone beating us at home at the minute. I believe we now have the best home record in the league, and the best form over the last 6 games. Oldham on Saturday now seems like another massive game (They all seem to at the minute)
