That Carlisle fan they keep panning too, the dude with the Tesco bag on his head. He's from the grim North. I know they're tight up there but surely he could have splashed out on a proper titfer?
To be fair mate at least he left his whippet by the fire at home up north unlike those two Quintin's with the fashion puppy pictured earlier in the Hamlet main stand. :facepalm:

If I had been able to go to the game, I'd have brought my dog. He's named for Edgar Kail after all. He's also a proper dog, not a labradoodle. :thumbs:

Not in the Carlisle endo I'm guessing.
It was Theodor's first game by the looks of it. Funny thing was in all the excitement the mutt seemed to be asleep :)

Great effort and great support from the fans.

Allez Allez allez all the way to the pub :)

Great support :cool:

We didn't disgrace ourselves, even more so considering the gap in levels of the two teams. But for us taking 2 or 3 half chances, a bit more luck and that, we could be looking at a replay or better.

I like to think that tonight, the spirits of Pa Wilson, Edgar Kail, Pat the Rattle, all our departed legends were looking down on us. And as much as anyhting, tonight was for the supporters, legends too.

The commentary position was right above them.

Back home and watched a few highlights, BBC did a great job on first look, respectful and not patronising.

Christian Smiths goal was really well taken, even better on TV.

Biggest talking point from a footballing point of view has to be the two last minute signings, both did ok but incredibly harsh to sit out Quade and Connors. Can't say directly it cost us the game but really feel for those two.

4-1 was harsh, was closer but they did seem to score with relative ease when they needed to. 3 of their goals came from Dulwich errors, just the one with some class.

Credit to everyone involved for an incredible evening, so well organised. Up the hamlet.

Perhaps more to the point, has a tendency to shoot from unrealistic range when there are sometimes better options. He, Vose and the new lad Dempsey were all impressive in midfield though with their possession play.
So thats ok then? Was out of London so had to watch the game on tv. You get a very different view on what’s happening.

Best night out at Champion Hill since Braintree in the Trophy. Crowd behind the goal at the car wash end was genuinely phenomenal. Let's have that every week.
All i said is he can’t shoot (or was looking for a televised screamer) and you get a different view on what was going on watching it on tv? Nothing about Gavin or anything

Who can't shoot? What? It's late and I'm very easily baffled. Really easily.

What a night. The score flatters Carlisle, we had them penned in their own half for large portions of the game, great commitment from our boys.

Chapman was excellent, apart from the shooting, but at least he was going for it. Marvins strike, from where I was standing (at the other end), would have been goal of the season if it had gone in, what a hit. Support was tremendous, got behind the team and lifted the atmosphere even at time when we conceded.

Carlisle did look like a league team to be fair, and they had the quality up top so they could sit back and defend, but we brought the game to them and the fight was there. New signings looked good.

Bring on Welling!

Watched the BBC highlights! Looked a bit unlucky, stats in Hamlets favour too (apart from the score line). Good effort.

Came home and watched 1st half on iplayer before crashing. Thought it was clearer on TV that they had the strength at the back to absorb our possession and were just more 'professional' in how they took their chances - which you'd expect from a league club. They also seemed to have a plan for containing Mills which is maybe why Yousaf got a bit more space and looked so good this match. All credit to him Mills and Monakana who all played some brilliant football. Monakana in particular really stood out as a danger on TV.

Both Vose and Chapman (bar the second shot) had good games and stood out as being capable of competing with league opposition.

I don't think we can really have much in the way of criticism about the team - 4-1 still feels unjust given how we played and the run of the match. If we'd got another goal at almost any point it seemed like maybe we could have really shaken them up.

For me the only slightly sour note was the decision to drop Quade and Conners who've both had a decent run of form in favour of the new signings. Maybe it's misplaced loyalty on my part but given what they've both done to get us to the 1st round I think they deserved their moment on TV. I can't help but think about how gutted they must both have been

Thought it was a decent performance and as others have said 4-1 felt a bit harsh. Would have been interesting if it had stayed at 2-1 for a bit longer to see if we could have put them under a bit more pressure, but I suspect that they would have just picked us off on the counter as they did well throughout the match. Cracking 3rd goal for them too.

Thought Chapman had his best game that ive seen him in and worked exceptionally hard. Also thought Vose looked more like the player he did in his first few games when we signed him. He seemed to do everything with a bit more urgency than he has for a while and most of the play was going through him. He is a very clever player but seems to get easily frustrated with others who maybe aren't as quick in the mind as him.

Really enjoyable night and big credit to everyone who organised can't imagine how much work had to go into that.

I felt for them too, they should have been in the starting lineup.
