My team Carlisle have lost 5 away games in a row.After a round of ground-hopping (Aston Villa v Newcastle United, Walsall v Yeovil, Wolves v Stoke) I arrived to take in the whole of the second half of Port Vale v United.
On my way in I found my way almost blocked by the most massive and lavish coach. One with 6 big wheels. The Carlisle team coach.Watching the team tinker or tanker about on the pitch I realised that had they travelled in 3 or 4 cars, like many teams, albeit non-professional teams, perhaps had to get the wheel-jack out on the way, I am sure they would have got down to business, fleet of foot, mindful of their fellow man. And not have pansied about tossing away a must win in front of their loyal away support.
The Ã¢ÂÂteamÃ¢ÂÂ must have felt they could just turn up Ã¢ÂÂ riding high up inside that fancy coach.
