Nice to see Kennedy’s name on a Teamsheet again!

Only 6 Subs though, likely due to late Devitt injury?

Devitt now out again.

The amount of injuries this clubs players pick up all the time is ridiculous!

Devitt never travelled so couldn't have been that late.

Went there start of the season Marko.

Season over in December, however if you expected/wanted anything else you’re deluded.

With the austerity measures and cost cutting, despite having a billionaire backer, next season will be even worse and between now and the end of the season we will just plod along in front of the die hards picking up enough points to survive comfortably in mid table devoid of any excitement and getting the floating supporters back.

At least we’re not Stockport

I think plodding along in the middle/bottom half of League 2 is seen as doing well from the owners’ points of view. We should be grateful that we’re not Darlington or Scarborough.

We are only 4 points off the playoffs so still plenty to play for. But imo for us to compete for top 7 we need to improve the quality of our attack in January. That means a replacement for Nadesan when he goes, and a replacement for Bennett because he’s the absolute definition of shit. We need more to break through teams at home.

If we do that we’ll have a chance.

A completely spineless and talentless performance. Not sure why Hope and Bennet are on the pitch other than to make the numbers up. We could have played till Xmas and still not scored. I could not believe that people actually applauded the useless f@ckers at the end. People need to wake up and realise that without investment our club Is doomed

It does feel a bit like the season is over as this is not a promotion chasing squad.Meanwhile the accounts are going to be filed in March 2019 when they are ready now according to the Trust-whats the point in waiting as there are no windfalls this season?

Filing accounts at the absolute time limit basically renders their purpose redundant.

Always going to be a tough game with Nadesan missing and got to the ground to hear Devitt was too.
It would have been tough enough without Parkes & Grainger, then to lose our 2 most creative, attacking players makes the job nigh on impossible.
Can't take 4 of our key players out playing away to arguably the best side in the league.
Just a huge difference in quality in the squads. They have Green and Rhead up front and Akinde on the bench,who will trouble every defence this year and we have Hope & Bennett who just aren't in the same class unfortunately.
This was summed up perfectly when we brought on McCarron, a 17 year old kid and they bring on Akinde who's on 4k a week.
I think our strongest 11 when all fit is not far off Lincoln's but not the starting 11 today.
Having said that I thought we were unlucky to be behind at the break after conceding so early. We could have gone under, but didn't and I thought could easily have been level at the break.
Couple of excellent saves from their keeper and a shot which either hit the post or hit Bennett - couldn't quite make it out.
We started brightly in the second half and had a couple of good chances but unfortunately the last half an hour we looked tired and jaded and Lincoln saw the game out comfortably in the end.
There just wasn't enough quality to come off the bench to really change things. We're looking to prospective talent and on loan under performers.
For whatever reasons the club has made its bed and on a day like today, with the number of players missing, the difference is like comparing a camp bed with a feather filled mattress when you compare squads.
To be honest, with that starting 11 and the subs we had available I thought it was a good effort for that 1st hour when there really wasn't a lot in it.
We had good chances and shots on goal. No maen feat all things considered and whilst the MOM was a surprise choice it's a sign that there keeper was busy.
Can't say I'm a huge fan of the way their manager and players behave but I would say how incredibly friendly and helpful all the people and stewards I encountered today.
Also when was the last time a home team sang their hearts out for the entire 90 minutes? It was impressive to bear witness to.
One final note, I'd like to mention Antony Gerrard.
At the end there were boos and angry shouts as well as some clapping.
Gerrard, despite a lot of abuse, was the only player who came right over, as he ALWAYS does, to applaud the fans. You could actually hear him saying "thank-you for your support."
He may not be everybody's cup of tea but I have the upmost respect for a player who does that.

Thank-you, Laffy, that is kind. I realise I'm a bit more rose tinted than some but you all have decades more hurt behind you!
But, it wasn't too bad today.
We've got our best 2 attacking players out, a central midfielder at right back and a CH at left back.
It's a big ask away at Lincoln.
Not sure it's Sheridan where the finger should be pointed.

It's all excuses though. I know we've a small squad but everybody has injuries.

He's brought in three players who he never plays. Not a good use of a limited budget.

If you are happy with a 2-0 defeat at Lincoln then we've fallen a long way.

We have indeed a few challenges on the personnel front but it was ever thus at Carlisle.

We were called the Shoestring Heroes when we won promotion to the First Division 40 odd years ago-nothing has changed since other than the length of the string is somewhat shorter and that is down to the owners discretion.

Their winger, Bruno Andrade, I think he's called, was superb.
How we miss Nicky Adams.
He, along with Rhead and Green and then Akinde when he came on were excellent.
That's some front 4 they have there.
Gerrard and Liddle, I thought, both played well against them. Can't imagine they'll come up against a more difficult to handle forward line.
The usual dreadful behaviour from the Lincoln managers too on the touchline. Completely unneccessary as they actually played some good stuff today.

Sheridan needs to be careful about pointing the finger in public.
It was refreshing at first but he can't keep slating them in public.
Do it in the dressing room and come out with the usual platitudes to the press.
Sowerby and Gillesphy through no fault of their own are accidents waiting to happen at times.
Look at what Sowerby did at Oldham and Stoke when played in midfield.
Look at the goals conceded today and other times as a full back. It's going to happen again and again and again. He's a central midfielder for a reason.
It's a shame as he looks a good player when played in position.
It's frustrating because centrally at the back we're strong.

Some balance and yeah singing our old fat asses off for 90 minutes has become the norm ..plastics, old gits, skooligans and all the Lady Imps. Glad the stewards etc were welcoming - some places we go the stewarding is horrendous and leads to conflict Stevenage a case in point as with the 1369 away end selling out there will no doubt be a few hundred interlopers around the place. Carlisle certainly stretched us at times today and it probably was the bench quality that was the difference..O'Connor McCartan and Akinde with the alternatives of Scott Wharton ..great CB on loan from Blackburn, Kellan Gordon from Derby and Bernard Mensah from Bristol Rovers we have a small but strong squad...err 4k a week for Akinde ?? ...it was much less than half that in the accounts. And one last point ...you were 70-80 yards from our revered managers and I would have thought watching your team..they have brought the city together and are building something very special ..they are bloody energetic and push the boundaries during games but incredibly respectful - no more devious or confrontational than Curle (or Sheridan/Nolan/Artell on their day)..certainly not in the same class as Evans and his sidekick ..or Flitcroft at Mansfield ...anyway we love them and thats what really matters :-) Good luck for the season (except the return league game of course)..we were on a rotten shoestring for nearly 10 years and know what it is like...2 stints in non-league..winding up orders etc and survived on charity...

I got the 4k a week figure from one of your stewards and a couple of your fans before the game who were slating him for being a waste of money!
I thought when he cane on he was excellent.
I can understand why as a Lincoln fan you would be proud of and right behind the Cowleys and I can appreciate how they can galvanise a club and city.
However, to compare them to Curle or Sheridan is nor fair.
Sure, Curle and Sheridan have their moments but I would class the Cowleys in the same bracket as Evans and Darren Ferguson.
Constantly on at the officials from the sidelines and contesting every decision.
I would imagine most fans have respect for your managers achievements but little regard for their behaviour.

Yes, I agree with that. I'm surprised the pretty much non stop harassing of the 4th official hasn't been punished more often.
As that Lincoln fan said, we were 80-100 odd yards away and the reason you notice it is because even from that distance it jumps out at you.
My abiding memory of the game though really is the atmosphere. It really was great and that was because the Lincoln fans just didn't stop singing all game.
You came away from the game thinking and feeling that this side was really going places on and off the pitch.
Many on here have bemoaned the lack of atmosphere at BP and compared to Sincil Bank yesterday, moribund would be kind.

It’s pretty hard to see from 80 yards away that The Cowleys are harassing the 4th official. Yes they question every decision but Danny lives every second of every game and kicks every ball. He very rarely lose control of his temper and although he talks constantly to the 4th official, most of it is polite chatter . If he was stood next to you at a Sunday league kick about he would be exactly the same. To even think about putting him in the same bracket as Evans and Flitcroft is way off the mark, if you ever have the chance to meet him you would appreciate that.
We do have a decent budget and make no apologies for that, most of that is self generated by winning the National League, winning the Checkotrade and reaching the FA Cup QF stage and losing at Arsenal. Gates of over 8,000 at home help too.

I was standing just behind the dug outs at the last home game against Lincoln, and if you think hounding and harassing the 4th official is just 'Polite Chatter' then I must be deaf, and as far as I'm aware I've never had any problems with my ears (unless the wife asks me to do something LOL)

I took some friends with me to the game neither of whom follow Carlisle. They both mentioned Rheads antics and how he seemed to have cheating down to a fine art. They both came to the league game at Lincoln and despite our lack of quality we're impressed with the effort. Yesterday at half time they felt Lincoln were there for the taking but by the end were bemoaning the lack of effort and willingness to gamble on balls into the box. Whilst the midfield has to take some blame Bennet is a statue and Hope runs around but never looks like scoring. I would ditch both in January and see if we can bring in someone who might actual be able to score
