Carlisle to be outfoxed by Super U's tonight 14:49 - Mar 2 with 1452 viewsdurham_exile

Tonight, we start the first of a home double header against Carlisle and Newport. The situation is we have 16 games to play and 20 more points to gain before we can be considered safe.

After 8 defeats and 6 draws in the last 14 games we have sunk to 21st place in the table.

COLU 30 33 -11
Southend 31 28 -25
Barrow 29 26 -7
Grimsby 29 24 -26

We still have all three teams beneath us to play but before that the old maxim one game at a time starting with promotion chasing Carlisle themselves without a win in 6 games.

It seems that Dean Gerken and Ben Stevenson are now looking at long term absentees together with Harry Pell which is regrettable. Shamal George and Brendan Wiredu will be included again.

Now in fairness to Wayne Brown, he was thrust into the melting pot with only a few days to prepare the team and so he can be forgiven for the game against FGR. Except that we once again played 4,2,3,1 (which in reality is 4,5,1) and we failed to register a shot on target despite playing for 45 minutes against ten men.

Brown played:

Gerken
Welch-Hayes Eastman Smith Doherty
Chilvers Wiredu
Tchamadeu Poku Harriott
Nouble

Subs:
George Senior Sayer Oteh Brown Sowunmi Marshall-Miranda

George replaced Gerken at half time, Senior replaced Tchamadeu on 59 mins, Oteh and Brown replaced Nouble and Poku on 75 and Sayer replaced Doherty on 82 mins.

Why did Brown start with one striker, why did he wait until the 75th minute before changing the forward players, why did he continue to play defensively when we were already 2-0 down and why did he not promote a more positive approach in that second half.

We were too pedestrian and too insecure when we had the ball. Now much of that comes after 14 games without a win but the players do not seem to be able to match their opponents for commitment, effort, and forward play.

Frankly, we are so poor at the moment and WB has been given a poisoned chalice, but he knows the club and he has enough experience of the players to be able to offer far more than they are currently showing.

Let us try tonight:

George

Welch-Hayes Eastman Smith Doherty

Chilvers Lapslie Wiredu

Poku Brown Nouble

Subs:

Coulter Sowunmi Tchamadeu Cowan-Hall Harriott Oteh Folivi

It is about time that we took the game to the opposition and that means getting in amongst them, playing the game in their half. Playing two up front and not being afraid to shoot from outside the area.

Weather tonight 4 degrees c partly cloudy and dry, let is hope that the pitch is looking better because it has not helped our style of play recently. Yes, I know it is the same for both teams, but the pitch has been poor, heavy going and bare in places.

15th time lucky tonight, I do hope so, perhaps a 1-0 home victory to give some confidence for Newport on Saturday.

Try and enjoy the game.

I think we're going to win tonight. I also think Barrow and Grimsby might win too but it's more important that we win and get this monkey off of our back. Win tonight, win on Saturday and suddenly everything looks a lot better again.

COME ON YOU U'S!!!

Why does Brown not like Brown or is it influence from other forces.

I wouldn’t pick Brown until he again earns the shirt. Oteh shows much greater promise.

Actually in a bizarre way only being able to see about a third of the pitch is not so stressful.

BBC Essex commentary is more important tonight, even though I dislike their Scummend bias.

I see that FGR successfully appealed Adams red card from the weekend.

Dickenson playing for Carlisle although difficult to see him on the East Stand touchline.

Carlisle freekick

George saves.

Visibility slightly worse if that's possible

We need everybody in North Colchester to light bonfires and get this abandoned. This is ridiculous.

Trevor Kettle is the referee so chances of a come back even slimmer.

Actually I think Colchester unlucky to be behind.
Smith had a very good chance to score earlier.

Weather at Cambridge as clear as a bell.

Fog easing slightly.

Browns decision to play Tchamadeu wide left is good, he is seeing plenty of the ball

If only we could score one goal, the mood would improve considerably.

Brown must bring Brown on for Harriott.

Noah - Humes is going nowhere - whereas unless we drastically improve we are facing relegation.

Worst winless run since 1972/73 season.

Absolutely shocking.
