Of the teams I've seen this season it's between Morecambe and Yeovil, both terrible.
Having said that after their second half at our place last night Oldham are right up there too.
If hadn't been for their keeper it would have been 4 or 5.

Surely we are the worst after the 2-6 demolition.
10 would of been a fairer reflection.

Seems Morecambe are doing okay just now.
Two wins in two games against teams in promotion push.

Sat 9th Mar [H] v Forest Green Rovers [6th] League Two 3-0
Tue 12th Mar [H] v Milton Keynes Dons [4th] League Two 4-2
Yep, certainly picked a good time to break that.

The stat was actually that they had lost all their games at home against top half sides this season rather than not won, but still a good, if unexpected, couple of results for them.

I see Carlisle accounts show them spending 86% of their turnover on wages for the last year. For comparison, that was the same wage level as Tranmere, but our turnover is over double theirs. How are they sustainable?

Crewe v Crawley in a fantastic, thrilling encounter up there...or not. I can't think of any connection between the two clubs at all so a chance for fans of Crewe to meet the travelling fan of Crawley and discuss football.

The reverse fixture was an odd one. Crawley won 3-0 but it was not a 3-0 sort of game. I know it sounds silly but the teams were evenly matched apart from the final result.

We could do with three points but I doubt we'll get them. Happy with a draw.

Crewe have had a similar game to that before Casey.
If memory serves me correctly they lost 5-0 to Coventry and Artell said , apart from the 5 goals there was nothing between the sides.
That is true not a piss take

That was a ridiculous statement from Artell. But going back to the Crawley game earlier in the season, I've never seen a game like it, we should have won so comfortably. We were so wasteful and to be fair the Crawley keeper had a blinder. But we dominated that game and somehow lost 3-0, crazy crazy game.

Crawley's keeper is a typical League two goalie. Plays a worldy then punches the ball straight to an opposition player in the box.

By the way. 0-1 Palmer penalty after a foul on Morais. Bit hard to tell if it was a penalty from this far away.

Can’t believe I decided not to bother today. Crawley have just had a man sent off after being subbed on for an “off the ball incident”. Sounds like a good one from our point of view. It’s about time we battered a team.

Exactly what's been missing for weeks from us, lots of attacking intent and much more ruthless, albeit we could have easily scored a few more. Once the 2nd went I. Shortly after the 1st, Crawley just fell apart. Felt sorry for the 79 fans that travelled up. 2nd time we've scored six this season, also conceeded 6 once. It's never dull being a Crewe fan.

It’s not true because it was that idiot Steve Davis who said it, not Artell, and you can expect no less from him.
