Yet another must win game for Carlisle, will the players crumble under the pressure, AGAIN, or will we see an improved performance?

Not sure which way this will go, we could be heavily beaten if we concede early, or we could put in a gritty performance and get the points.

Most people on our forum think we'll lose by a few goals, and the Daggers on this forum appear to be quite confident of a result.

For what it's worth I think if we win we'll be safe, needing probably 1 more win out of the last 4 games.

Dagenham will come for a stroll in the park, they'll be there for the taking but will be take it? Will we shite!!

A abysmal football match resulting in a narrow 1-0 win for Dagenham, all but sealing our relegation.

We've only won 2 home games this year.

Yet some of our fans are expecting us to win 2 of our remaining 3 home games. I don't know what world they are living in.

Let them dream just for a little bit longer, much better to say I told you so than to be an ever constant voice of doom

As I've said on the relegation thread, this is the one game in quite some time I've actually been fairly confident of getting a result from. Our good away record, Carlisle's awful home record and just our general head-to-head record against them fill me with confidence, which will make it even funnier when we lose this match.

Anyway, looking forward to a first trip to Brunton Park, imagine myself and Lee will be in one of the local pubs pre-match if you fancy saying hello Shoddy or Gregory ;)

3-1 Daggers.

I'll let you know if that's doable tomorrow. So far this season I've been traveling up for games alone, so would be able to get to the ground as early as I wanted in order to drop in and say hi; but the friend I used to go to games with is now back in Cumbria, and we went to the last home game together so imagine he may be up for this one too. I'll have to see when he wants to go up, though could probably find 10 minutes at least before the game.

What didn't you face last time you were relegated? Not a dig by the way, merely pointing out its not the end of the world ! Think of those One Direction fans who have to live everyday knowing Zane is never, and I mean NEVER coming back!

Curzon Ashton....and Carlisle
#15
I am just wanting to know if we'll have the brick and Lipstick in the dug-out during the game..........may be our best way for Inspiration and surely the Brick could do better than Kavanagh or Curle. We already have a stuff fox on the pitch, so a brick in the dug-out is nothing out of the ordinary.

Interesting game, its all or nothing here me thinks for Curle who I think should have been taken out of manager position this week, a big mistake AGAIN by our inept board.

Still, he has played his Ace Card and because of that this won't be a usual game, he's destroyed his players publically in the press so I'd expect either A: They double their pathetic efforts to prove a point or B: deliberately halve their pathetic efforts to prove a point.

If other results are kind a draw won't be a disaster , I think you lot are underestimating the value of those 3 extra points you have over Tranny

A win would be lovely though and i'd love Curle forever. It'd probably put us 6 points clear with Tranmere playing Southend away and Cheltenham playing Wycombe away.

If Tranmere get nothing from the next 2 they will be shot to pieces confidence wise 2 points or more and they will think they can get out of it, it's all about bottle now

Well if Tranmere don't have 6 points out of their next 3 games i'd say they're as good as down. Two very winnable matches and their last 2 are Plymouth away and Bury at home. With Cheltenham already being as good as down that would be a godsend for us if they didn't get the 6 points.

Daggers were crap at our place, we were just 10 times worse, Cureton knows where the net is so don't be surprised if he pops up to beat you tomorrow.

I've seen Carlisle's run in and this is the easiest game of the last 5 games so they have to win this, they have Burton, Stevenage and Hartlepool and one other that i can't remember so lose this game and they'll probably be down i'm afraid.

Exactly, even draw it and we're down.

We should have a decent number there tomorrow as well, just to add. Train prices were £20 return in advance a few weeks ago so a lot of people jumped on.

If we have 70 now I'll look like a right tit.

Plymouth is the other one.

Stevenage is probably the next most likely for us to get something from. I know they're having a good season but Graham Westley seems to have a mental tick about Carlisle, granted they beat us in the season we were both going for the L1 playoffs but usually when we play a Westley team, Westley will do something mad and self-defeating that gives us a chance in the days leading up to the game or simply have a tactical brain-fart. We never quite got the better of his Preston side but there were some exciting games with lots of incident.

Earlier this season he decide to give an interview about how big a club we were and what a privilege it was that they could play us. He seems to have this Clough/Revie style love/hate relationship with us.

Curle's latest master stroke is to play a back 5 in a must win game.

I know we're shit but at least fkin go for it! We won't score with these tactics if we play all weekend.
