The Pitch Looks A Little Wet

4:40 pm, Monday, November 16th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 14 Comments

Here’s the Carlisle United pitch Brunton Park today after some very heavy rain over the weekend.

It looks a little damp and players will be diving  a lot if they play on that.

Such is the news on an International break. 🙂

    That’s not a pitch it’s the boating lake.


    From previous:

    It’s always moving when countries come together around the world in support for the afflicted, But the world has become slack and less vigilant, worrying more about money and status-ship rather than what Joe Bloggs is doing in his kitchen down the street.

    I have no doubt that stories will emerge later stating that some secret agency or other knew this was being planned.

    It’s sickening to think how many people have lost their lives to extremists in the name of religion, and how many more will be lost before action is taken against those responsible.

    Because here’s absolutely SFA to talk about during international break.
    On Sammi, it doesn’t look lie Cardiff will take him, so unless he goes to a league 1 club it looks like we’re stuck with him next year

    I don’t do politics… to me, they are the root of all evil… but as I stated, being there in my hometown of nyc during our time of need, I was immensely grateful for all the love and support I received, and wanted to pass it on to our French blogmates… its a tough thing to have to live through, and I wish, as humanity, we can get all this worked out, so our children do not have to go through this type of senseless violence…

    Why is a professional pitch on an angle like that ? There’s a huge dip otherwise the water would be all over pitch ?

    Nowt wrong with a bit of surface water to get them balls gliding round a treat.

    That’s a lovely looking pitch/swimming pool. I want one for my back yard.

    Play a bit of footy at one end and swim at the other. Beautiful. Toon tang has the best comment on this.

    We need Sjp set up exactly the same, our flops could be getting ripped apart as usual in the dry half, while the fans could at least have some excitement watching a duck race at the other side of the pitch. Sounds great.

    We were crazy to let Abeid. We wld b crazier if we let Bigi go.

    I saw AFRCON game against DRC and Bigi was impressive really looked mature.
