That’s a good decision for me. It keeps the same shape and system.

I think we are edging it with the better football. Both goalies could be MoM. Etuhu was unlucky to get the booking but just caught the Town player. Hopefully our quality will come through in the second half.

Maybe [censored] Sheridan would have gave them the boot up the arse like he did at HT in the Oldham match.

I think it could be partly down to that but also the loss of Yates and Nadesan and failing miserably to replace them is hitting us hard now.

I actually thought we’d win today, but I think many predicted this happening. Fact is we’ve lost 3 players and only brought 1 in with no football league experience. It was an almighty ask to keep this going with that level of weakening.

Oh well, we go again next week.

The worse thing we can do is hit the panic button and in any particular order, sign a load of dross for the sake of it and appoint a tw@t like Lee Clark as manager of the club.

If Hope would have put that one away in the first half my 1-1 prediction may have come to fruition.

Hardly a massive surprise as they lost a couple of players this week but are a strong team on paper - it was obvious that losing some of our best players would have a massive effect and we are back to a threadbare squad because Holdsworth is not working hard enough.

When you leave your job and both sides say good things about each other on leaving then a couple of months later your old boss is slagging you off to the world on the radio then of course you will want to thrash them when you get the opportunity to play them.

Don't blame him but I am still gutted that it isn't seven wins on the trot - I would have taken a draw :(

So what do you suggest Marko? You are currently backing the board and the back room set up and tell us all we're wrong about them. You constantly berate those who suggest Curle did a reasonable job at Carlisle and yet today it is unacceptable that our ex managers side, who have lost their three best players, appear to have beaten us comfortably? I can accept us getting beaten, It happens but, our Board , in my opinion, have been complacent in their business. We've also lost some important players with little if any real evidence that the board have been doing anything to prevent this by a) getting them signed up as soon as the window opened or b )having adequate suitable targets in place to replace them. My view? we won't see Nadesan again or Sowerby, and most likely not see Yates either. Time will tell on this one, I hope I'm wrong, but if they have any ambition to push on, we will need to replace those three players without a doubt. Failure to do so will end the season and fully display the boards level of ambition. As a supporter, that is wholly UNACCEPTABLE!!

They don't like it up 'em!

Set up Simpson and he wasted it, wasted two chances actually.

He could be the new Waring/Cosgrove/Beck/Stockton/Bennett

First half we started slowly, got away with it, grew into it, should have scored and been 1 up at the break.
Second half we started slowly, didn't get away with it and it seemed like we had nothing in the tank.
The second half was generally very poor. We did have good chances later on to give us a way back in but it felt a little too late.
It's such an old cliche in football and I'm loathe to believe it but second half it felt like they wanted it more or maybe the run of games has caught up with us,
The thing that really struck me today and what I'll take from the games was just how well Curle had prepared his side.
Clearly he has an advantage that no other manager has in knowing our players so well and it showed.
Lots of hard tackles on Devitt throughout would be my first instruction playing Carlisle and that's what happened.
Get the back 4 turning and playing towards their own goal as that's not what they are good at.
Play forwards up against the back line and get them to play in around the them on the deck.
Attack down the left hand side as it'll be hard for Danny to get up and down and cover Gillesphy.
All these things happened and it was a masterplan for Curle for which he deserves credit, unfortunately.
He was screaming and screaming for them to get the ball forward quickly so as to keep us facing the wrong way and running back to our goal.
Throughout I felt they pressed us, harried us and generally were quicker to the ball. Curle had clearly got into them and told them not to let us play.
I thought MacCarron did well. Still a bit soon for me but he got better as the game wore on.
With Yates and Nadesan in the side you sense one of those 1st half chances may have been taken.
Tellingly, that through ball option from either Devitt or Sowerby isn't on without that pace ahead of them.
Fine line with this side at the moment. The starting XI looks a match for most. Lose a couple of players and it's a big ask.
Looks maybe a bit soon for Simpson at the moment but must have been brilliant for him to get on and I'm sure he'll be given room and time to develop as by all accounts there's a player in there.
I think criticism of Wright and Murray is far too premature. Nobody was going at them last week. We're key players down against a side managed by our ex-manager.
Fair enough that something could have been done about the incessant attacks down our left and there could have been a re-jig. The second goal felt like a matter of time and it looked clear it would come down down that side.
But, it's early days, they're learning on the job and hopefully will be given time and players to do it.
Very disappointing 2nd half today but 1 defeat in 7 and in the play offs. Who'd have taken that in August?

Couldn't argue with that assessment NCF. We had enough first-half chances and shot either wide or straight at the keeper. Definitely missed Nadesan and the pace and experience he has of getting passed his man. Devitt looked a bit lost without that opportunity to play it wide or into the channel. We also didn't make the right choices at times when we did have N'pton on the back foot first-half. Defensively we were weak on the left, as you mentioned and made a few unnecessary mistakes. Curle certainly did us on tactics second-half, but then we never got ourselves going until it was too late. Simpson was a bit too fresh for this game, but I hope will work his way into things like Yates has done. All in all a poor day but given Murray's optimism on signings and in particular Nadesan, let's give DH a week to get things done before we, collectively, worry.

I thought today was a gutless performance with absolutely no redeeming features. Let's make no mistake Northampton we're very poor yet they thrashed us. We never got out of first gear and at times it was the Butch Wilkins coaching manual sideways or backwards. I appreciate the run had to come to an end but to give it up in such a hapless manner was galling. This was not a good advertisement for Wright and Murray in getting the job...or maybe it was exactly what the Board wanted.

Oh and the officials were inept

Listening on the radio there were spurts of pro Keith Curle chants from the Carlisle section.

Just goes to show that a few grumbles on here doesn't go to show what the true reality is on what fans think about Curle.

First half I was up the other end but second half I was sitting right infront of our fans and didn't hear any. There were plenty coming from the Northampton fans, who were in the corner of the main stand nearest us. So from where the broadcasters were sitting they might have thought it was coming from our end.

To be fair to Keith he outlined we had a lot of weaknesses in his interview before the game and seem to exploit them quite well when you see the highlights with what was a far inferior team on paper.
