Livesey's poor backpass lead to Lauri Dalla Valle's opener and then the defender blew Carlisle's best chance of an equaliser by blasting over from eight yards.

Crewe dominated the opening 45 minutes finally made the breakthrough two minutes before half-time.

Livesey fluffed his headed backpass and goalkeeper Mark Gillespie blocked Bradden Inman's shot only to watch helplessly as Dalla Valle headed the rebound over him and into the empty net.

Abbott said: "It's an individual error from Danny at both ends that has cost us.

"He's the most honest man in the world and he knows he has made the mistakes, but we are going to get known as great losers if we are not careful.

"There's nothing wrong with the game, the team or the performance, but silly errors mean the best team lost.

"I'm upset and angry as we deserved something from this game. The team's not far away now, but we've given six points away on our travels over Christmas.

"We can't keep giving points away. It's a fine line between being a good side and barging your way up the league or a side that finds life difficult."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
