We were poor individually tonight and the manager had a bad day at the office how can you drop River Humphries for Steve Ryan when the former has been superb in partnership with Wilson and I am not sure Will Jones deserves a guaranteed place either He is just not fit ! so accommodating Him in A 4-3-3 left us weak in midfield and leaving Mckenna out we missed his pace and energy, disappointing night all round but did we even want the playoffs ? UTA
Just simply cannot understand why Carl upset the back four tonight. It undoubtedly cost us the points. It also pains me to say this about such a wonderful servant to the club but in my opinion Gards is no longer good enough for first team selection. Really disappointed tonight but we move on UTA
Totally agree why did he change the back 4? Be interesting to hear his reasoning, you could see their gameplan once they made their subs everything went down our right handside far to pedestrian without McKenna's pace. Gutted with the way results went for us aswell last night, but we have another big weekend and hopefully we start our strongest 11.

And if you don't grab 'em,
At least you'll fall on top of the world
Think about it
Apparently River was working in Carlisle . Shocking and nightmare of a performance . We have got so used to Witton's freeflowing,pacy and attacking football and I couldn't believe how awful we were . We have 2 big games coming up this weekend . I do hope we don't have 4 in a row null points .
Ouch! Hard to take that one. I understand the comments about changing the line-up and disrupting the side but I think the management team and the players need to be cut some slack.
I've mentioned it many times but It really is hard playing 2 games a week alongside full-time jobs and I guess the manager saw an opportunity to rest some players against, lets face it, a team second bottom.
Perhaps the issue is that our "squad" players aren't up to it?
Hugely disappointing result and didn't honestly see it coming although having said that, we've experienced it all before when struggling teams put that extra effort in and get a result.
I'd say we are still in a decent position, in fact one place better off than we were despite losing but it's getting very tight now and we can't really afford too many more games like that. Although I still think that there will be more ups and downs to come for all the teams chasing the play off spots. I've thought all along that our two fixtures with Farsley Celtic would be crucial and it looks increasingly likely that will be the case but we're still in there and who knows what will happen.
I dont buy he was resting players if he was it would not have been River or Danny ! Carl is one of few who rate Ryan and always plays him, Humphries and Wilson are streets ahead IMO. Playing 4-3-3 to accommodate Will Jones isnt right either !
A bad couple of results. It also coincides with the injury to Owen Dale. With regards River, he was substituted at Ashton, so I was wondering if he had picked up a minor injury? Its good to see Will Jones available again, but this usually means that Tames has to drop into midfield to accomodate him, and I dont believe this helps Steves best game. Not to sure whether or not I prefer Gards or Danny, as they have such different attributes. I think Owens & Foley have missed Owen Dale alongside them. Lets hope for 6 points this weekend!
