AFC Bournemouth 2 Carlisle United 0: They were still searching for Bournemouth’s “soft underbelly” when they turned the lights out at Dean Court two days ago.
Have your say
Read your report with great intrest.Seemed very thorough having worked on newspapers for 40 years and covered many hundreds of football matches as a photographer very inpressed with the fair report.Did not attend the match but read a number of reports on the match .I am gong to the AFCB match against Exeter on Tuesday with nmy son. I hope you win Tuesday night... Wish Carlise luck in the future and hope we both might go up.
Let's not get too disheartened! A win at Hartlepool tomorrow and Saturday's defeat will be a distant memory.
I thought that you looked fairly well set for a draw but when AFCB changed to 4-4-2 and played through the midfield to our wingers, the win was never really in doubt. your big cumbersome Centre Half( Michalik?) was Ok when facing forward but was constantly pulled out of position when turned by quick, nimble strikers.
Zoko was your only real threat so it was good to see him replaced. The much hyped Madine was pocketed by our Centre Backs all afternoon.
Mr Abbot was out- thought by a younger,inspiring manager who found where the real "soft underbelly" was.
good luck for the rest of the season.
