Title: Carlisle United (H)- Saturday 12th January
Post by: Aitobs on January 09, 2019, 12:24:31 pm
Keith Curle takes on his former club Carlisle United at Sixfields this Saturday, with the Cobblers looking to avoid going seven games without a win in all competitions.

New signing George Cox looks likely to make his debut. John-Joe O'Toole remains sidelined with injury whilst Lewis Ward and Shaun McWilliams are doubts.

Carlisle are fifth in the league but could go second on Saturday with a win at Sixfields, if other results go their way. Carlisle have won their last six consecutive league games, including a 6-0 drubbing of Oldham Athletic on Boxing Day and a 4-0 win over promotion contenders Colchester United last month.

It is getting to that point isnít it?! The only scrap of hope Iím clinging to is that all runs (good and bad) have to come to an end at some point and KC will have in depth knowledge of their lineup - whether that will be anyway near enough is another matter.

Carlisle have won their last six consecutive league games, including a 6-0 drubbing of Oldham Athletic on Boxing Day and a 4-0 win over promotion contenders Colchester United last month.

Well they've not only just lost their manager ( a strange move to leave a high flying L2 club for a lowly Conference club, even if it is close to your home), but they've also just lost one of their better strikers Nadesan, who's gone back to Fleetwood, and in his place have signed a very tall, young, 18yr old CF from Preston, yet to debut anywhwere but non-league. Carlisle should be there for the taking.

Only things for certain are it will be freezing, FORWAAARD will be shouted and Hoskins or Cornell will cop some stick after the game.

I'm not hopeful at all about this one, but looking forward to seeing George Cox in action.

Can't wait for the pre season games to begin.
They hold a lot more interest than our next 20 dead rubber league games.
Just hoping we get to play some promotion/ play off seeking teams at the end of the season so we can spoil a party or 2.
A few beers at Cambs, stevenage Grimsby and lincs away??
And that is whats left from the ruins of the most boring  season ever in our clubs history.

Totally agree. They've won 6 in a row; we've not won in 6.
Nailed on home win. Place your bets before the bookies realise we always end runs like that at Sixfields.

He couldnít be any worse in midfield than he is in defence....could he? I donít really see the logic in Facey taking the place of Foley who must be pretty high up in the poty standings (admittedly not a particular achievement given this shower of sh**) or Jay Williams who looks very promising but itís all about opinions. I agree with Danís post - there is little to no chance of any of us accurately guessing the starting lineup on Saturday as it seems like selection by tombola these days.

Could be in for a turgid game I think, won't be much or many goals in it.

The key to getting at us is to get in behind our back 4, But we are very good on the counter attack so I can't see you lot over committing, a game of both sides cancelling each other out could be on the cards.

We've lost Nadesan this week who will be a huge loss! We'll likely set up 443

We have an annoying habit of getting caught out on the counter particularly from our own corners for some reason so you will probably get joy from that. Iím also concerned by the set piece quality of devitt which is proven at this level. Iím just praying that Andy Williams shakes off whatever knock heís picked up as the prospect of Morias ploughing a lone furrow or Hoskins alongside him fills me with dread.

 ;D We have nothing player wise to get round the back of your back four we are hopeless against counterattacking football.we have this really annoying corner routine, where 2 players stand by the corner flag whilst deciding what, the either , make the wrong decision or hit the first man wheras one of them would be far better defending the inevitable counter by you

This will be an ace game, full of players putting themselves in the shop window.

Carlisle players hoping to get picked up by Curley Cobblers.

Cobblers players hoping to get picked-up by League 1 teams.

Which means, the Cobblers will have players playing for themselves and their move away, and not the shirt.  So, the Cobblers will have lots of individual skills on display & no team effort.  Which means plenty of ****-ups.  Of course, our usual d1ck-heads will blame that on the usual suspects, whilst applauding the glory-seekers.

(In the days when I played at a reasonable level, I just wished for the show-boaters to get a move.... but, they never did.  I wonder why?)

Whereas Carlisle players will be trying to show Curley-Cobblers how they are "team-players", and worthy of joining his new-Curleys - especially if they get a couple of hundred a week more......

Fascinating stuff.

Hopefully, our supporters will recognise the beauty of the game.... as football metamorphosises into cricket..... that 3/4/5 days of neutral stuff, waiting for the last few minutes to break the opposition down.


Predictions:
Score 3-5
Curle to leave after the game by mutual consent, in order to take over at Luton.
Cobblers intended signings from Carlisle don't happen.
Austin returns as interim manager.
Fire sale of high-wage players begins
Panic signings of random players begins
Kasim resigns on 3K per week.

Carlisle arrive at Sixfields having won 7 away games in the league this season, when we have won 6 in total home and away.

Curle took Carlisle as far as he could!!

Yes, by all means. Everyone is entitled to their view but then I am entitled to put my foot on the ball in the centre circle and play a neat pass out to the left wing. I try to do this with a little humor rather than malice  :)

So no McWilliams snr (even if he is still only a kid himself really)?

My preference would be for Turnbull to drop back into the three, with J Williams as the holding man with S McWilliams on the right side of the midfield pair.

What do you disagree with there Evers - neither Roberts or Cam McWilliams have barely even made a squad this season so to expect either of them to be promoted straight into the first team mix are a bit far fetched. If it's a comment about my mini meltdown I have already stated that I overreacted but I'm far from alone in that regard.

What do you disagree with there Evers - neither Roberts or Cam McWilliams have barely even made a squad this season so to expect either of them to be promoted straight into the first team mix are a bit far fetched. If it's a comment about my mini meltdown I have already stated that I overreacted but I'm far from alone in that regard.

I would say you traditionally overreact and generally are one of the first to react after a loss whether in players or in a game. Try to adopt a more positive attitude; it helps us all. Frank is pushy on the young players which I dont necessarily agree with other than Williams who played well recently at FGR. His point was that you came up in what he saw as a negative comment and his reaction was that we have promising youngsters coming thro'. Sounds if you fell for a bit of a red herring?

                     Cornell

           Odoffin Taylor Pierre

Facey                                   Cox

             Turnbull   Foley

Hoskins                          Morias
                   
                  Williams


I think that will be the eleven unless we go 4-4-2 (which I think is unlikely), but maybe Morias up with Williams and Hoskins part of a three. Would like to see Jay Williams in a midfield three with Turnbull and Foley, but that might lead to being accused of being negative.  ;D

Fitness doubts remain over S.McWilliams, O'Toole, A.Williams, Taylor and Bowditch (the last two came off against Bristol Rovers).

So, that leaves 16 players (in squad number order):

Cornell, Facey, Buchanan, Odoffin, Hoskins, Foley, Powell, Morias, Pierre, Turnbull, Bridge, Roberts, Coddington, J.Williams, C.McWilliams and Cox.

Then you have two more goalkeepers, Ward (who knows what's happened to him) and Goff.

Edit: three of the sixteen mentioned are former academy players and Cox has no league experience.

I sure as hell hope Andy Williams is fit to the lead the line, Morias needs a foil to play off of. Maybe try Powell up there if he is not?

Not a good idea to blood youngsters when we're out of form. Puts pressure on them, we end up losing - crowd gets hostile, the manager panics, opens the revolving door of journeymen, results still don't improve, manger leaves by mutual consent, new manger promises new broom in summer, rebuilds team with another lot of journeymen - results don't improve - and off we go again..........

In other words we've had too many players and too many managers in the past 2 years. We need stability. But where we get from I don't think anyone knows.

I get your point, especially on the back of the sales of KVV & Crooks...could get a bit toxic out there today if we go behind...

But we've tried established/experienced players continually since CW left and look where we are..plus another 4 managers down the line
At least the youngsters have an affinity with the Town/Club and will actually put in a shift...

Looks like a strong starting line-up.  Interesting that both Bridge & Cox are starting together.  There should be plenty of creativity down that side, and some quality crossing.  I think the prediction about Williams scoring is a good one - he will get plenty of service, today.

Solid performance in the first half, excellent in the second and a thoroughly deserved result. Bridge MOM closely followed by Foley. Pierre and Turnbull excellent as usual. Cox looked promising. Facey and McWilliams both with good performances. Jay Williams was a revelation in the first half, bye-bye Ash Taylor!  ;D Morias is a class above, another superb finish with great all round hold up play. Cornell had a good, confident game.  ;D. Hoskins didn't have much impact, tasked with trying to latch onto long balls played over their back 4, but was unfortunate not to score in the second half due to a good save from the keeper. As others have said his miss-kick in the 2nd half was hilarious.

Overall a strong, assured, team performance with excellent passing, movement, pressing and energy by all.

If the team can produce a run of performances like this they will significantly close the gap on the top 7 let alone pull away from the bottom 2.

Very good performance and we certainly looked hungrier and moved the ball faster. Although I have mixed feelings about Crooks leaving he was generally slow at moving the ball, which doesn't suit the style KC wants to play. Personally I don't think we'll miss him that much. Some very good performances today. Bridage was outstanding and really deserves a run in the team as he's played well as a sub in the last few games too. Good debut from Cox and much improved performances from J Williams, McWilliams and Facey. Foley had another good game too. Agree that the ref gave us a few decisions today, but it's about time!

This was a good all round team performance and a fair result, really didnít see this one coming and feared a reverse as did all my chums.  We didnít miss the transferred super stars, Cox looked promising, Bridge hit a purple patch today and needs to be given a good run and left in the team, still not sure if Powell is worth hanging on to, he seems to blow hot and cold but then thereís Hoskins, he just isnít worth his place and contributes virtually nothing, his constant selection is keeping out someone like Marias who can actually score goals.  Hoskins sum total to the game today was his pantomime shot for the moon, pirouette and ending up in a heap on the floor, he must have rehearsed that, it was so bizarre and side splitting.  All in all an excellent afternoon and reversing the trend of recent weeks.  Looking forward to our trip to Cambridge next Saturday.

Bridge was fantastic and so too was MacWilliams for 75 minutes until he faded .
Hoskins ran his socks off and I felt sorry for him in the end when he was subbed.
Also , Cornell deserves praise for excellent handling throughout . There will be no new keeper coming to this club this month .
Thoroughly enjoyed it .

This was a good all round team performance and a fair result, really didnít see this one coming and feared a reverse as did all my chums.  We didnít miss the transferred super stars, Cox looked promising, Bridge hit a purple patch today and needs to be given a good run and left in the team, still not sure if Powell is worth hanging on to, he seems to blow hot and cold but then thereís Hoskins, he just isnít worth his place and contributes virtually nothing, his constant selection is keeping out someone like Marias who can actually score goals.  Hoskins sum total to the game today was his pantomime shot for the moon, pirouette and ending up in a heap on the floor, he must have rehearsed that, it was so bizarre and side splitting.  All in all an excellent afternoon and reversing the trend of recent weeks.  Looking forward to our trip to Cambridge next Saturday.
Thatís unfair on Hoskins . He caused them trouble but as usual didnít deliver the final touch

I don't think I've ever seen a fatter centre back pairing than Gerrard and Parkes for them today. The two of them looked like they'd asked everyone they know to get them Greggs vouchers for Christmas and have been making the most of them ever since!

Nobody played badly today, not even Taylor.

Even fist half with a good block on Hoskins shot and a good diving save on the A Williams effort. Dave Cornell made some good routine saves but also one excellent one handed save from a volley to keep it all square at the break. Second half was mostly ours with the odd break away from Carlise. Turnbull, Pierre and Williams dealt with these comfortably. Facey had a much better game and Cox had a very good debut. Foley was his combatant self and McWilliams had a steady game and only tired slightly towards the end. Bridge had been building up to this performance and fully deserved his MOTM. Morias and Powell looked lively when they came on with Morias taking his goal well. A good team performance and a positive reaction today from the sale and loaning of a few players. Looked like we had some breathing space.

So-so first half, really really good second.

Facey looks so much happier at RWB. The back 3 are better without Taylor. Cox looks like he'll be a good acquisition, and Bridge was like a new signing second half.

Maybe some of the high earning 'star' players were actually a negative influence....

Wow, was not expecting that!

I thought we were average first half, they maybe could have had two or three. We only really had Williams chance which was saved brilliantly. Just like Dai's big save to keep it level. Second half we were a revelation and fully deserved the win, Cornell had little to do other than claim a cross.

Back 5 were spot on today, Pierre was much more vocal than usual as captain. Jay Williams looked so composed, just like Turnbull to be fair. Kid has a bright future I think. Facey was much better at RWB, Cox didn't really do much for me (nobody seemed to pass him the ball first half) but was steady and put some good deliveries in.

McWilliams was back to his old self (even with a yellow card) and Foley combative as always. Bridge was outstanding today, so many clever little touches and turns it makes you wonder why we have only really seen this now? I thought Hoskins worked hard but offered little else today, apart from his hilarious attempt.  ;D

Williams wasn't fully fit, and it showed as he didn't get through half the work he normally does. Industrious enough though. Morias surely must get the start next game over Hoskins, he doesn't work anywhere near as hard but holds the ball up so well for someone short and certainly knows where the goal is. Powell looked decent despite being fouled to death although should have put his chance away after a clever flick from Morias.

I hate to say it, but we actually looked a lot better without the "big guns" and Ash. Does anyone know what happened with Ash? He was tweeting about needing to rush off for a family emergency and it seems some took offense to this?

More of the same please, Mysterious One!

What an enjoyable game. I predicted a win but never expected that. All the growing apathy leading up to the game as well. A bright first half and a steam rolling second half. Nobody had a bad game. Players seemingly in their favoured positions and everything just worked. I like that back 3. Must keep Taylor out of this team. Jack Bridge playing in a central role worked a treat. A striker and a creative wide player to compliment what we now have will see us safely mid-table. Tim Oglethorpe was banging on about the play-offs again. I love the bloke but come on, give it a rest!

A good performance all over the pitch and we ran out worthy winners.

Yes, Carlisle had a couple of chances in the first half, but all the defence (particularly Cornell) did their job.  To be fair the Cobblers had opportunities too, so on the balance of the half a level scoreline at half-time was reasonable.

In the second half though the Cobblers took control of the first 25 minutes, in total contrast to recent home performances. As a result the game was won. Why was this?

In my view it was the fact that the defence connected with the midfield and the midfield connected with the forward players. It is funny really, the greater your control in midfield the better both your defence and forward players look. There certainly was a good energy throughout team ad in midfield. The midfield looked much more together as a unit and the transfer from defence to midfield from Pierre, Turnbull and Jay Wiliams was excellent.

Iíve not been convinced by what I have seen in the past from Jack Bridge, but in this more advanced central role, quite apart from his goals, he was a real handful. Overall there were many fewer misplaced midfield passes. Too early to say if this is how it is going to be in the future, but the fact it happened at all is encouraging.

Finally, to the Hoskins moaners, yes you had your moment just before he went off, but he really kept the pressure on their defence all the time he was on the pitch. They were constantly having to play back and knock it long, so their pattern was disrupted. But, hey, donít give him any credit.

Cheers Crutchless - just how it was though really.

We are relying on too many loan players this season who have over-performed and put themselves into the shop window meaning that their parent clubs want them back to play or to sell on.

The players that Curle signed are very similar to the ones that you yourselves moved on, on high money but as you can see the players that he signed for us are quality otherwise we wouldn't be in the play-off places but David Holdsworth signs players now to 'look after the books'.

The loan players had gone back before yesterday and our squad is threadbare so a draw is as much as I expected from that game.

Nearly everyone at our place is out of contract come the end of the season so possibly expect to see a few Carlisle United players coming in.

I think KC got his team selection spot on against Carlisle. Players in their preferred position, like J.Williams in the back 3, Facey as RWB, McWilliams and Bridge as CM and Hoskins up front. He also made the right substitutions at the right time, bringing on Morais and Powell to freshen up the attack and used the experience of Buchanan to replace the understandably tiring Cox. He should be given the credit he deserves.

The team were much more composed on the ball, moved it quickly and were clearly working hard for each other. This was the best overall team performance for some time.

One could argue for Morais to replace Hoskins up front next game, but I wouldn't change a thing. A word of caution however, I do not expect the next 2 games to be anything like the Carlisle game. Carlisle were clearly a footballing team who liked to build up play from the back and sometimes took an age to fashion out a chance. Cambridge and Morecambe will be much more typical of league 2 opposition who will like to get the ball forward quickly. Our back 3 will have a lot more defending to do, so it should be a good test.

Three good saves from Dai Cornell in the first half kept the score at 0-0 for HT but the play that hasn't been mentioned or included in the highlights is the pin point 60-70yd pass by him from right to left that set up an attack; the pause and gasp of appreciation from the majority in the West Stand was something you very rarely experience at Sixfields.  His distribution over the season has improved impressively to be probably one of the most consistent we have had over the recent years.

Just an observation (I suspect I might get shot down on this one), but home grown players and ones we sign from elsewhere all wear the same shirt on matchdays?

Unless they do something that is glaringly obvious which deliberately damages the team, crucifying anyone for a genuine mistake does not only affect their morale, but almost certainly the rest of the collective?

Even if they don't read any SM posts, the likes of Cornell and Hoskins almost certainly are aware of the feeling from the crowd if things go wrong at any point in the game. Everyone makes mistakes in the team, but some get overlooked as their overall contribution is seen to be "worthy".

Both players have their limitations but no-one can deny that they are trying their best & until someone else comes along that the manager deems to be better, they will be in the team and therefore deserve our support?
In my opinion, yes, it's OK to have a grumble at a mistake. But it's then our responsibility as supporters to do all we can to help raise their heads again. I am still convinced that the supporters helped win the home game v Plymouth last season by encouraging the whole team for the entire game rather than getting on their backs at the first sign of a mistake.

Not my recollection - He was in the same squad as Keith Bowen and yes he got a lot of stick in his first season - he was a tall gangly player who looked uncoordinated and clumsy -  however I suspect rarely to his face as he came from some of the meaner streets of Corby at the time. Graham Felton loved for his speedy runs but not the most physical of player also got stick -  referred to as "Handbag" Felton by some on the sidelines.

Just an observation (I suspect I might get shot down on this one), but home grown players and ones we sign from elsewhere all wear the same shirt on matchdays?

Unless they do something that is glaringly obvious which deliberately damages the team, crucifying anyone for a genuine mistake does not only affect their morale, but almost certainly the rest of the collective?

Even if they don't read any SM posts, the likes of Cornell and Hoskins almost certainly are aware of the feeling from the crowd if things go wrong at any point in the game. Everyone makes mistakes in the team, but some get overlooked as their overall contribution is seen to be "worthy".

Both players have their limitations but no-one can deny that they are trying their best & until someone else comes along that the manager deems to be better, they will be in the team and therefore deserve our support?
In my opinion, yes, it's OK to have a grumble at a mistake. But it's then our responsibility as supporters to do all we can to help raise their heads again. I am still convinced that the supporters helped win the home game v Plymouth last season by encouraging the whole team for the entire game rather than getting on their backs at the first sign of a mistake.

As I said, I guess I am there to be shot at, but that's just how I feel?

From where I sit in the North, I never really hear any abuse towards any player, the occasional piece of vitriol by an one or two individuals towards Taylor aside!
