Carlisle United 1 v 1 Mansfield Town

 

With us having no game today, Keir and I went down to Brunton Park. Mansfield started the brighter of the two teams, but went behind against the run of play. Carlisle rallied after that and were in control until half time. Mansfield came out firing on all cylinders at the start of the second half and should've levelled the game when they got a dodgy pen early in the half, however, the Carlisle keeper saved ex-Ragers player Kane Hemmings weak effort. Mansfield did equalise after a good save by Carlisle's keeper fell to a Mansfield player who volleyed home. 1-1 ft and Carlisle will be happier with a point. Good day out to be honest.  :D

I see thread regulars OH Leuven have appointed Nigel Pearson as their new manager. Is CHC an ostrich?

Now before Gavin goes, I'd like to ask him one more question.


Do you like Abba?

Because this is a thread about games you've been to, not managerial changes. :)

 

Went to their game on Sunday as it happens, 1-1 against table toppers Beerschot Wilrijk. Was a decent match.

BTW, as well as having a nutter for a coach, they've also signed Tony Watt, ha! Can't see this ending well.

Big Nige makes his mark already, two wins and a draw since he took over including this impressive 0-3 win a Cercle Brugge this week, their first away win since December last year!

Edit to add: Weird how the interviewer at the end spoke to him in an English accent, he even pronounced 'Leuven' wrongly, the way native English speakers do. Reminded me of Steve McLaren speaking with a Dutch accent when he was manager of Twente, ha!

I happened to be in Bilbao when they were playing their latest Europa League tie with FC Zorya. The game was instantly forgettable especially the sand-dancing performance of Inaki Wiliams - rumoured at one time to be of interest to Liverpool. The best player on the park was Iker Muniain who unfortunately injured himself and now looks to be out for the rest of the season. Everything else during the 90 minutes has been erased from my memory.

 

What was far more impressive was the stadium and the atmosphere in and around the stadium. The San Mames stadium is not only a fantastic arena for football but is an example of good architecture setting it apart from so many modern lego builds. Ideally located just on the edge of the city centre most fans walk to the game. Before kick-off and after the final whistle all the local bars and restaurants are teeming with fans meeting up and having a good time - not much chance for bother on this occasion as only six opposition fans made the journey! The thing was though you could see that the club means something to the city with so many outlets having flags, banners, strips etc on display. I know it is not comparable to sunny Greenock but one can dream.

I believe Bilbao fans are amongst the most fanatical in Spain. A stadium I've always fancied visiting.

I suspect the game I attended was not the best occasion to see and hear the stadium bouncing. It is definitely though more than just about the football. Well worth a visit but if football is the main reason for visiting the city pick your game carefully - I just happened to be there and there was a game on. 

 

One other thing I meant to mention in my earlier post was for the game I attended most fans arrived no more than 10 minutes before kick-off. I know it was not a sell-out and the stadium has multiple gates but the electronic turnstiles worked perfectly.

Ages ago, when our game at some seaside resort was called off. Myself and LargsTon (I think) and a couple of others went up to Love Street and sat in the Caley Stand as St. Mirren beat Airdrie 1-0.

It was a dreadful game with a whole stadium full of pond life - especially the far-right mob in the away support..

“McGhee needs some support, there’s no-one backing him up.

Hayes playing it forward, Bell being forced to do it all alone, now forward from Marr, here’s Ritchie, still Andy Ritchie, look at the control…”

 

“That is a marvellous goal from Andy Ritchie. Twenty minutes on the clock and Morton’s supporters come alive. A goal which epitomises the control, the arrogance, the cheek of Andy Ritchie.”

I'd forgot all about that. Airdrie fans are even worse close up.

Years and years ago I went to an SFL playoff game between Clyde and Airdrie at Broadwood, and it remains the only time I ever heard "**** ****" at the football. I can't remember which Clyde player it was directed at but I remember being quite impressed that the Airdrie fan in question knew enough of the guy's biography to shout that at him.

Edit: **** sake, it was "fenia* b*t*rd"
