Yes, but what has my post got to do with that.
If the general quality is better then it will be harder to get on. The other thing is, big clubs don't always equate to better teams. Those clubs (Naarwich, Leeds, Southampton, both Sheffield clubs to name but a few) were there for a reason. Basically their teams weren't good enough.

Our team were there on merit as well.
They were able to afford much better players than us. We narrowly avoided relegation.

I knew it was going to be a good day when I entered the stadium with the sound of ELO's Ma Ma Belle ringing in my ears. Followed by Happy Birthday being sung to Tim Dieng. The sight of Alex Hartridge dribbling and passing in the vicinity of the opposition penalty area is a sight to behold. I can only conclude that Matt is a disciple of 1970s Dutch Total football. As a dyed in the wool 442 person, I think I finally get playing with 3 centre halves, we are actually playing with 3 "Liberos". Still conscious of fine margins though, without Cam's save, the day would have been sub optimal.

Southampton and Leeds both had very very good teams. We were clear underdogs at that time.

We had a good team but nobody anywhere near as good as the likes of Adam Lallana and Jermaine Beckford.

Couldnt be more than £200 for a second driver ? Are we going to need a secondary driver for any other away day now ?
I'd say you could at least double that with 2 days pay, overnight stay plus expenses.

Taylor got the substitutes right today.From the highlights there was a nervousness about how we created and took our chances.Sending on an experienced head with a couple of quick players to hurry the Carlisle defence in their decision making won us that match.
I think Taylor's job is critical this week in making sure that the chill out as much as possible so that they can be as calm and controlled as much as possible during the Easter matches.

Without knowing the details it’s difficult to know how the travel arrangements were handled,did Matt ask for a second driver ? Did the club say no,as I say,we don’t know,I just hope any issues on travel matters is sorted PDQ because we don’t want a cheesed off manager at a crucial point of the season
