Hi

I was listening to the Radio Cumbria commentary, which I have to say was quite complimentary. In their opinion it was the first yellow which was a bit harsh as he got the ball and then the Carlisle player tripped over him, they reckoned foul but no card.
No first yellow would have meant no red.

Agreed Greeners. The second was a yellow in my book, the first was nothing like. And a couple crude assaults off the ball on Adams & Udo late on should have been severely punished. Both occurred in front of the linesman, but he & the ref bottled it and did nothing. You can imagine Coops' reaction - in the end he was reduced to laughter at the inept officials

Carlisle's chances were few, and most were wild long shots that had to be retrieved from the empty open end terracing. Bar a few punched clearances from free kicks & corners, Lewis had little to do. That said, Carlisle should have done better a couple of times on the counter after we'd surrendered possession, but poor finishing meant Thomas' goal was not threatened.

That contrasts with 4 occasions when sweeping moves put Matt & Jack in on goal only to be thwarted by fine saves. And most unexpectedly a searing drive from Carl that was comfortably held

I get the point about the defence not always getting it right. But I cannot remember when we last kept clean sheets so regularly and when we are caught out, the determination of last ditch cover is unbelievably good.

Kitching & Nathan are well matched; when Matt Mills is fit again, I think Farrend is the player most under pressure to keep his place, in fact, with Kitching playing so well now, maybe he might move to the centre to re-accommodate Nathan on the left? Nice to have selection problems through strength

In the last two games, we are starting to get many more chances as the midfield has settled. And for the time being, Matt & Jack look like the most forward attackers with potential

Did Coops get a yellow card?

As above, no. Sub-title was wrong on the streaming service

Just what I was thinking. If I was the Carlisle manager and had seen the ref refuse to award a penalty against Carlisle and then sent off an FGR player i would be sat there with a smile rather than doing anything to get booked.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
