Stream's a bit patchy but I saw our goal and it was a cracking first time hit from open play - felt like I'd tuned in to the wrong team. We've looked bright but Oldham coming back into it now, had a couple of efforts just.

Our on-loan defender made another fuck up (think he's been responsible for 4 goals conceded in as many games). We've got better defenders than him on furlough...

Having initially played some nice football in the attacking third, Harrogate have come out and defended that and we've responded by pressing back and going more long ball and even playing for throw ins. We do have them a bit back under the cosh at least though they managed to get that goal.

The Harrogate commentators are an absolute treat. Like cricket commentators with a touch of Kenneth Williams thrown in for good measure. A carlisle throw in on 16 minutes was remarked on by 'he's got a long one too has he? Hmmmmm we'll see!'

2021 so far has been like going on a safari of bbc local radio commentators

A lot of our fans were going nuts over him last week - talking about the bus timetable and whatnot apparently. He was also apparently shockingly biased, even moreso than the FGR guy - which is definitely saying something.

Salford won't have had an easier half this season - they're barely trying and have had 60+ percent possession. The most excitement for us was when their keeper sliced a kick.

He is biased, but subtle about it. I can be entertaining to listen to the commentary of people for whom your team are the bad guys who must be stopped.

Gutted Newport was called off, they look like they are falling like a stone! No doubt be back to form by the time we play them!

Oldham getting a goal back has put this game on a knife edge, they look pretty decent wouldn't shock me if they score again so we're going to need another one I reckon.

Ding dong.! Big Jamille on and straight on the end of a looping cross. And Oldham were looking more likely to be the next scorers. Doubt that'll be the end of it.

Great diving header from Davison, and they hit the post.

Both teams all over the place at the back.

Hang on in there city! Newport dont deserve anything here, ref has gifted them the game and they still cant score. Embarrassing seeing Newport players begging the ref for free kicks and penalties against 9 men.

Commentator just almost came after Harrogate jinked past a couple of our midfielders on the right wing. Then described Omari Patrick's three touch solo run from box to box as a 'lung bursting run'

They just said of a Harrogate player who was too exhausted to go to take a corner at more than a snail's pace 'he's not just trying to look exhausted, he actually is that exhausted'

Carlisle finding out that playing games of football is harder than watching other teams play games of football

Not a dreadful performance by us, but we don't look like scoring anymore. We still look a million miles away from finding a settled formation, and can't see where we pick up a win any time soon.

Christ, they've hit the post from point blank now. Oldham sound the more likely scorers again. Only a couple of minutes to hang on lads.
