'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Opposition View - Carlisle


Following yesterday's 2-2 draw at Carlisle United, here are some views on the game from the Cumbrians' manager Greg Abbott and a few of their fans.

Praising substitute and late-leveller Francois Zoko, the Carlisle boss said: "Hats off to him. He came on and saved the game."

On the match as a whole, Abbott summed things up by saying: "I'm disappointed we didn't get three points, but we still have some momentum from the run that we're on. This league is phenomenally tough. Look at Wycombe, they're a good team with some good players."


Both sets of supporters seemed unsure whether to be disappointed or pleased with the final result, but most of the Carlisle contingent were generous in their praise of Wycombe's performance.

The following extracts are taken from cufc online.

"Forget all the talk of Playoffs. We are far too inconsistent if we have to scrape a point at home against a team next to bottom of the league.'

"Wycombe are not a bad side, there's been a lot worse come up here in higher league positions.'

"Against a team well down the table, the situation was there to be exploited but yet again we failed to do so. Getting a point late on with time running out saved our blushes.'

"Wycombe looked much better than their lowly position and played some lovely football at times.'

"Wycombe came and had a real go, if they sort their defence I think they'll stay up, but with that back line, which looks worse than any other defence I've seen in L1 this season, they are doomed."

"Our keeper Collin was my man of the match I thought he was outstanding today. And Wycombe will not be going down playing football like that. Very entertaining game I thought, draw a fair result.'

"Trotta was probably as good a striker as we have seen at BP this season.'

"Their winger Grant had Robson in his pocket.'

"Let's give Wycombe some praise. In the first half their movement off the ball, inventiveness and ability to find space was impressive. Just the kind of play that makes us look slow, lethargic and disorganised.'


Next Game: Wycombe v Exeter - Mon 26th Dec - 3.00pm
