Can we merge the "Bitch apology" wind-up / comedy thread with this one please, admin?

Surely it's the same subject, just a different view.

If we’re doing that, may I also suggest adding the ‘replacement for my bitch’ content to this thread, for the same reason.

We're all entitled to an opinion we've won 3 in a row they maybe have against poorer teams but you have to do that in every league. I've had my doubts over beech but let's see what happens in the next 8 games win lose or draw

Three wins is fantastic and only a non Carlisle United fan wouldn't be happy with this, judgement still out on Beech though as that run was wretched.

I think that the run was so bad it has magnified the wins because we were miserable about it for so long it has been great to have a good week for a change.

Elevating the manager business is premature I reckon as unless we at least get into the play-offs then he has massively failed in my eyes.

The Newport game is really important as they are a decent side and it is a six pointer, if we get through that without 'bemoaning' something then perhaps the corner has really turned, that is if we get a win at Barrow - can't remember if Devitt left under a cloud or not but he will definitely have something to prove, very good for us that there is no crowd down there as that would have definitely lifted them.

Best thing about these last 3 games is we deserved the win in all of them. The likelihood is the effects of fatigue will cause us to have a dip in performance soon.
Hopefully tho like beech said can’t remember a game we played badly and still won , so maybe we’re overdue a snatch and grab victory soon.

Best manager in years talks up the area has a clear pathway for younger players a couple of past managers would be hard pressed to name a youth player
Had us purring before covid of course we struggled post covid who wouldn't but then again some reckon it's just a bout of sniffles
Seems a very good bloke with a proven record of improving young players and getting best out of them this team leaves nowt on the pitch win,lose or draw..
Unfortunately fate pulled the rug from under us this season yet still a glimmer of hope,if we can scrape into play offs we will be favourites if not I can be satisfied we are far better on the pitch than for a few years

"A clear pathway for young players"

A pathway where? Directly from the youth team to the substitutes bench?

Beech doesn't trust our own youth players. Charters deserved / deserves a run in the team, but has been treated poorly.

Name me one home produced player he's selected to start consistently. He trusts our youth players less than any Carlisle manager I can remember.

I don’t recall Curle giving our youth a chance, might be mistaken of course.

I think Dempsey was already established in the first team when Curle arrived? Hadn’t he already played the bulk of the second half of the 13/14 season?

No, he only made four appearances in 13/14.

But he made 43 appearances in 14/15.

Shows how screwed my memory is. I thought he featured more at the back end of the previous campaign. Still, Curle wasn’t with us at the start of 14/15, if my memory holds up on that point? Didn’t he arrive 5 or 6 weeks in?

September 2014.

Dempsey definitely wasn't "established" at that point.

Also - Patrick Brough deserves a mention.

Three appearances in 13/14, 29 in 14/15.

So (even) Curle gave a genuine opportunity and fair chance to two of our young players - which is far and away more progressive than Beech.

Problem with Charters is that he is poor in the air and doesn't get stuck in enough for a midfielder.

I think that translates as "the problem with Charters is he doesn't chase the ball like a demented puppy, run lots of pointless distance or lump the ball aimlessly forward when it drops to his feet".

The whole point of having a team is you have a blend of styles which compliment each other. I'd argue being a dominant header of the ball is low on the priority list for a team which passes the ball through the midfield rather than plays long ball for the majority of the time.

Also, he didn't seem to have a problem tracking back and tackling in either the Walsall game or the game he started against Morecambe in the CCU Trophy.

That's very harsh considering he's only ever started two league games. He played quite well at Walsall and his other game was v Grimsby in which we were absolutely dire.

I think he'll turn out a decent player.

So heading the ball is not a priority along with pressing the ball and fitness in your great football tactics philosophy.

Along with that, a more creative midfiielder would create 6 or more goals a season for our forwards negating the need for a goalscoring midfielder.

Who exactly did you have in mind, Adrea Pirlo, cause that's who you would need to create that many assists in this league.

According to you Charters tracks back and tackles yet Mellish chases the ball like a demented puppy.

If I had to pick someone on here more biased and less objective I would really struggle.

Heading the ball, as well as a central defender does, is not the first attribute I look for in a midfielder no. If I was picking Charters as a centre-forward or a defender then it would be far more important.

The "fitness" comment is a bit strange Homer. Are you suggesting Charters is unfit? I'd never pick any footballer purely on the basis of how far they can run, having positional sense and a couple of brain cells means you can be more economical with your movement and run fewer kilometres but use your energy more effectively. It's what the best players do.

As explained above, adding a genuine midfielder to our midfield and creating that balance doesn't magically turn anyone into a Pirlo (and you look a bit silly suggesting that's what was said). It supports and takes the weight off your other two midfielders and improves performance across the pitch, which in turn allows more and better quality opportunities to be created for our forwards.

Just listened to the Jack Armer interview on the main club page and really interesting to hear what he has said about Covid, how it affected so many of the team coupled with the issues of not being able to train!

No wonder we have had a blip and probably explains (thank god) that CB has been cut some slack!!
