Why Piglet-we appear to be aligned other than I would give Collin a 9-even after letting in 3 at home.

We can of course shout and scream about bringing in new blood but Pressley pulled that drawbridge up earlier this week by stating the budget has gone.

We won’t get relegated but crowds will fall to sub 3000 when the clocks change.That will blow the budget by a couple of hundred grand for sure

At least we seem to have found a gem in Sagaf.
There is the makings of a good side but not going to get the results with our suicidal defending.

That wasn’t just about defending today mate-we were cut to ribbons and made to look static and confused

If the budget has been spent I take it must have got [censored] all for McCarron & Galloway……..no surprise there then.

Not as angry as others on here. Collin, Jones, Olaf and Sagaf all played well. Other than that Exeter with their multi million player sales obviously have a much bigger budget than us and it showed. Their passing was a pleasure to watch.
At full back I prefer Elliot to Iredale, I think Elliot defends better. Neither of them are good enough for L1 though.
Carroll looked like he won the game in a raffle, how bad was he?
Elvis still persists with this playing wingers on the wrong wings pish. How frustrating is it watching McKirdy beat his man time and time again only to then have to cut behind him and do it all again because he can't cross with his left foot. Ffs get him on the right wing, Thomas on the left

I thought the ref was good today. Didn't take any shit. Exeter were above the Mansfield theatrics so credit to them for that and good luck to them. Entertaining to watch. Tom Parkes when he came on ! Oh dear, clearance immediately 2 yards forward, 30 yards up. You can take the boy out of Carlisle

Why was Carroll playing the furthest forward of the 3 midfielders?

If he’d been instructed to then you have to ask serious questions of the manager.

All agreed Marko save looking forward to League One is a pipe dream-it’s not going to happen and the stakeholders can’t afford it.

Pressley made it sound like Galloway refused the offer of a contract so the club had no option when Leeds came for him. Shame his Dad didn't advise him to at least get a season under his belt before moving to the likes of Leeds.

You are right. Not enough quality anywhere in the team.
I know its ugly but I would play Loft, Olaf, Thomas (l) and McKirdy (r). Just pump it long. They all have pace. Might not have worked today but most teams have slow back fours. Can't currently see a better plan and Brazil style passing masterclasses with our cloggers is never going to work.
Not sure why Pressley was so animated, what did he expect to happen?

Collin excellent game- 8
Elliot out of his depth- 3
NKP won everything thought he had a great game- 8
Webster dodgy and simply not good enough- 3
Iredale very poor defensively, would be better as a wing back-3
Jones only one that took charge in midfield- 7
Carroll shocking and unfit- 3
Sagaf few decent touches but just a bit lightweight- 6
Bridge looks a decent player just needs to play higher up the field and will influence games- 7
Thomas looked disinterested- 4
Olomola tried but not much came off-6
Next week I’d play
Collin
Branthwaite NKP Mellish
Thomas sagaf Jones iredale
Bridge
Mckirdy olomola

As if Jones doesn't have enough to do, that would put even more pressure on him to win the second ball. No-one else seems capable of winning those 50/50s in midfield.

Look at how Exeter played-very few passes at the back.Keeper punted more often than not because he knew the quality of the midfield would see them winning the ball more often than not

As for the love in regarding McKirdy, let’s not forget he played like Dill the Dog for those old enough to recall, this after being booked for a blatant dive.He’s got talent for sure but it needs channeling.As you say, move him to the right and Thomas to the left and put the ball in the box for Loft.Mix it up because the season is moving on and teams seem to know how to play against our key players-Jones almost anonymous today.

We may be fit but we aren’t technically very able so play to our strengths and get the ball our wide and ram in the high balls to Loft.

Doesn’t reflect well on Pressley, a very poor display last week including long spells without creating a chance against the bottom club.

After a full week to reflect on what went wrong, make changes and try and lift the performance level we get another extremely poor display like that.

Already looking like a grim dogfight in the basement for us.

Pressley in his interview claimed that we had lots of chances against Scunthorpe

Next time we lose he will claim that the players aren't doing the instructions he gives them out on the pith, if we draw it will be a fantastic result and if we win he will say that we played terribly but he will take the win

Exeter were so superior it was embarrassing. Only Collin, Sagaf, Omalolu and McKirdy looked decent for us.

Their no 7, 27 and 8 and the lad with the pony tail were excellent for them.

They weren't that superior for the 15-20 minutes of the 2nd half...then it went flat as they worked it out OR we stopped doing what we'd started.
This is the same group of players that played Barnsley off the park....what's happened since then

If you look at the first 10 mins of each half, we did look ok-I would call that Exeter being a smart away team taking the sting out of the home team.Once they shifted a gear, we looked second best and chasing shadows

Yes I know that

He was calling Sorenson Olaf I thought when we signed him.

What's difficult about spelling Olomola

The problem Jones has, is in the position he plays. With just being in front of the back four, any time he gives away possession, the back four are immediately put under pressure.
For example the first goal conceded yesterday.

We hammered Barnsley in the cup as they couldn’t be arsed about it - like a lot of championship sides there’s not much in it for them and is seen as a hassle.

That game, as we,vex found out has been a red herring.

We,vet just had decline after decline with our owners, yet there’s some that think there doing a wonderful job.

At least we’re not Stockport

Collin - 7 Must be the quietest captain ever and stop fecking about when you have a goal kick, just hoof it upfield
Elliot - 1 Only for turning up.
Knight Percival- 7
Webster - 4
Iredale -3 Marked higher than Elliot because at least he can find a team mate when he passes
Jones - 7 Mistake that led to 1st goal but never hid
Carroll - 2 He offers nothing
Sagaf - 6 Not convinced about him
Bridge - 7 Decent going forward
Thomas - 4 Nowhere near how he can perform but was not given any space
Olomola - 6 Decent goal but needs help beside him
Mckirdy - 7 Looked dangerous when he came on
Loft - 6 Didn't do much
Sorenson - 3 Did he touch the ball

Funny how people see different things.

I thought the only shining light in yesterday’s game was Sagaf. He looked very good, and surprising how strong he was.

I thought NKP was absolutely awful. He kept trying to play the player as opposed to the ball. Every time it came near him he was wrestling them and almost horizontal; missed too many headers. Webster was defo better than him, though not by much.

Fela needs a fellow forward to get the most out of him.

Jones wasn’t on it today. Too many missed passes, but I think he can be let off.

Bridge showed Some good dribbling, but that’s all.

Thomas was shite. Didn’t come to the ball; didn’t look for it. As soon as we had the ball he turned and ran up the wing. Didn’t offer anything.

McKirdy changed the game when he came on with his runs and worrying their defence. But he still runs into the corner and has to turn back or just loose it.

And Carrol? Unbelievably awful. No idea why he was so far up the pitch. Bizarre.

Pressley made the correct change at half time. Made a difference, but as soon as we scored myself and the lads I was with all said it was a matter of time before we concede. And then their second goal came with god awful marking. How do you not mark a 6ft3in player in the box?

All-in-all, awful display for the majority of the game. I think Pressley doesn’t have a clue what to do and it looks like a long, hard season ahead.

Blue flags waving at the top of the tower...
