WE'RE CONSISTENTLY INCONSISTENT. We're heading down to the middle and it's going to be worse next season. Still, mustn't grumble.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/grimsby_highlights_930428/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/grimsby_highlights_930428/index.shtml Mon, 22 Apr 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[The run-in]]> A quick look at the games remaining for those sides in contention for that last playoff place. So - what do you think?.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed13/the_runin_930294/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed13/the_runin_930294/index.shtml Sat, 20 Apr 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Playoffs]]> As we seem to be looking at the playoffs again and 7th looks to be our only possibility, how have teams that finished 7th fared recently? A correspondent has found out]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/playoffs_930293/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/playoffs_930293/index.shtml Sat, 20 Apr 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Pressley stays]]> .for another year at least. The attraction? Probably cheap. I'm not convinced about his credentials but his activity in the closed season will give us a clue.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/pressley_stays_930292/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/pressley_stays_930292/index.shtml Sat, 20 Apr 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Lincoln highlights]]> A good watch. I never felt that we were in much danger of losing, but I wondered for a long while if we had a goal in us. Oh, and Mason played a stormer]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/lincoln_highlights_930219/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/lincoln_highlights_930219/index.shtml Fri, 19 Apr 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[They didn't like Lee Mason]]> I think he was the best I've seen all season. Played it by the book, yes, but Shackell was his own worst enemy. Mason was always up with play whereas most of what the imps fans thought they saw was from 100 yards away. Fools]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/they_didnt_like_lee_mason_930210/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/they_didnt_like_lee_mason_930210/index.shtml Fri, 19 Apr 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Bury highlights]]> Just enjoy!.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/bury_highlights_929503/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/bury_highlights_929503/index.shtml Mon, 08 Apr 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Bury FC]]> We know that they're skint, but is that what's denting their form? Their supporters' views on the problem]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed12/bury_fc_929186/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed12/bury_fc_929186/index.shtml Wed, 03 Apr 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Tranmere highlights]]> Horrible, really horrible. ZWe need someone to take chances. Oh, and a new defence. And we can't wait until Christmas. Who is in charge now? Why aren't they talking to us? Why the denials that we are in trouble on and off the pitch?.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/tranmere_highlights_928905/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/tranmere_highlights_928905/index.shtml Sat, 30 Mar 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[The Tranmere view]]> They point to our missed chances (wonder why that could be) and first half supereriority, and out total capitulation second half. Inept management and no true striker- we're heading for 12th/13th]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/the_tranmere_view_928878/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/the_tranmere_view_928878/index.shtml Sat, 30 Mar 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Cambridge highlights]]> Too many gaps at the back and too many tired bodies. Pressley got tetchy after the Match - he doesn't seem to like opinions different to his own. Poor management and a misfiring squad could easily leave us in the bottom half come May]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/cambridge_highlights_928361/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/cambridge_highlights_928361/index.shtml Sat, 23 Mar 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[The accounts]]> .don't make pretty reading, and the inflated valuation of assets is, frankly, embarrassing. Debt only works until it has to be repaid - how long will that be, or will it be written off? Still, he wh pays the piper]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/the_accounts_927850/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/the_accounts_927850/index.shtml Sun, 17 Mar 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[FGR - the opposition view]]> The first page of their message board is worth a look. Apparently we were robbed]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/fgr__the_opposition_view_927849/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/fgr__the_opposition_view_927849/index.shtml Sun, 17 Mar 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[FGR Highlights]]> Two defensive errors for the goals and a good goalkeeping performance at the wrong end led to the draw. But take heart from a good performance? Right now I'd rather win ugly]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/fgr_highlights_927848/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/fgr_highlights_927848/index.shtml Sun, 17 Mar 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Notts County ]]> Well, we were chasing the game so there was a good chance that they would get that third but the way in which we conceded those first two was amateur in the extreme. It's a good job that the next game is away so that this lot can confront their demons]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/notts_county_927481/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/notts_county_927481/index.shtml Tue, 12 Mar 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Swindon Highlights]]> Two poor sides on display. Where was the form recently shown by Swindon? It's fine to win ugly, but it won't work every week Pressley needs to know his best tactics off the players available and stick with it. Play to our strengths!.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/swindon_highlights_927236/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/swindon_highlights_927236/index.shtml Sat, 09 Mar 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Hope stays]]> At least another season as his contract has been extended. If only we were able to provide him with a decent partner or two, eh?.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/hope_stays_927145/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/hope_stays_927145/index.shtml Thu, 07 Mar 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Newport highlights]]> Despite being poor we still created chances but our finishing was poor. We gifted then their goals and confidence will be dipping. I don't fancy our chances against Swindon]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/newport_highlights_926677/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/newport_highlights_926677/index.shtml Sat, 02 Mar 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[More trialists in for friendly.]]> .with Sunderland at their place today. Good pan this to give some pitch time to fringe players and those coming back from injury. It's better than a day's training, surely? And an extra striker wouldn't go amiss.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/more_trialists_in_for_friendly_926274/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/more_trialists_in_for_friendly_926274/index.shtml Mon, 25 Feb 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Colchester highlights]]> Chances at either end but it looks like we could have won. It's the old Carlisle problem of turning possession and chances into goals]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/colchester_highlights_926137/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/colchester_highlights_926137/index.shtml Sat, 23 Feb 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Looks like Pressley wants to stay]]> .according to the OS. I'm not surprised as the Clud does have a more professional look about it of later. It must be a good berth for a Scot too. I hope he's given a handle to show what he can do past another couple of transfer windows at least]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/looks_like_pressley_wants_to_stay_926052/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/looks_like_pressley_wants_to_stay_926052/index.shtml Fri, 22 Feb 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Slade?]]> Itt seems there may have been contact between the Club and Mr R Slade lat year despite the Club denying it, accordin to the News and Star. Left and right hand?.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/slade_926051/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/slade_926051/index.shtml Fri, 22 Feb 2019 21:00:00 +0000
