The Opposition View

Following yesterday's dismal 0-0 draw with Carlisle United, here are some views on the game from the Cumbrians' manager Greg Abbott and a few of their fans.

Speaking to CUFC Online, Abbott seemed happy enough with a draw.

"It's another point gained," he said. "It's always going to be tough down here. You have got a team fighting for their lives and you're always going to come across a frantic helter-skelter sort of situation, and you probably need a goal to settle everything down and take home more than we got."

"Whoever comes here over the next few weeks is going to find it difficult because you have got a team here that knows they have a chance of staying up and every game is a cup final. They played like that today, not in terms of quality, but in terms of endeavour and commitment."

Commenting on the poor quality of the game and the playing surface, Abbott said: "We are at the back end of the season and on pitches like that against teams fighting for their lives, that is what you are going to get. Sometimes it doesn't happen as a spectacle and it didn't happen today. But we have to grind out stuff and we have got a point."

The Carlisle fans were as mind-numbingly bored by the whole experience as we were.

'No passion and very little skill or cutting edge. Mistakes and comedy moments galore. Wycombe were a poor team and Carlisle were no better.'

'No entertainment, no quality on the ball, no skill, no excitement, no ambition, no desire. The road to oblivion begins with a single step and we took that step today.'

'Never known so many fans sit in silence at an away game. We were hardly up for it and didn't look like scoring. Only one tame effort on goal. Really poor.'

Next game: Oldham v Wycombe - 13th March - 3.00pm
