And only a couple of years older than Clint Hill. A flute Carlisle manager? WE'll have to wait and see]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/mint_for_murray_917079/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/mint_for_murray_917079/index.shtml Tue, 12 Jun 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[It's Sheridan]]> John Sheridan in as manager. He looks like a safe appointment with a good track record if you don't count Notts County. Welcome aboard John, and good luck. You'll need it]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/its_sheridan_917006/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/its_sheridan_917006/index.shtml Mon, 04 Jun 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Grainger signs on]]> I'm in two minds whether this is a good signing or not, it depends on whether the new manager rates him and how he's used. The constant up and down the pitch catches him out sometimes but a hoofball approach may suit him, if not the fans]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/grainger_signs_on_916977/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/grainger_signs_on_916977/index.shtml Thu, 31 May 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[We won't be singing Slade songs this Christmas.]]> Thank the Lord. But still no news on who it's likely to be, despite speculation about Holdsworth. Tick tock though, time is wasting.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/we_wont_be_singing_slade_songs_this_christmas_916971/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/we_wont_be_singing_slade_songs_this_christmas_916971/index.shtml Thu, 31 May 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Season Ticket Deadline Extended]]> apparently because fans want to know who the new manager will be. Understandable, but the figures must be MUCH lower than this time last year. Does this also mean that we won't know who the new man is until next week? W arch this space]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/season_ticket_deadline_extended_916945/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/season_ticket_deadline_extended_916945/index.shtml Wed, 30 May 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Old MacDonald to farm elsewhere?]]> True or a smokescreen? The name of the other Club would have been useful, but top journalism from Jon Colman as usual]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/old_macdonald_to_farm_elsewhere_916937/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/old_macdonald_to_farm_elsewhere_916937/index.shtml Tue, 29 May 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Lumsdon's speaks]]> CL has now made this "official" in the press. The feet of CUFC must now be bullet-ridden, one debacle after another. And Nixon seems oblivious to the fact that anything is wrong. That or thick-skinned]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/lumsdons_speaks_916936/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/lumsdons_speaks_916936/index.shtml Tue, 29 May 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[No white smoke yet.]]> Something isn't right? Yeah, the shower of effluent that's in charge at Brunton Park. The goalposts there now have wheels permanently attached as shown by Chris Lumsdon's report that Hopkin was about to accept the post but then the offer was changed. .]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/no_white_smoke_yet_916906/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/no_white_smoke_yet_916906/index.shtml Sat, 26 May 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Hill to Fleetwood.]]> Surprise, surprise (again). Good luck to the bloke, an ambassador for Fooball and I wish him well. Skill and judgement made up for a lack of pace. Hope he does well as a coach at Fleetwood]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/hill_to_fleetwood_916838/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/hill_to_fleetwood_916838/index.shtml Mon, 21 May 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Ellis off]]> Surprise surprise. He's gone for better job security.than we could offer. There's only Grainger left to say whether he's staying but I'm sure we can do better than him for the money. The sooner the new manage comes in the better]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/ellis_off_916837/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/ellis_off_916837/index.shtml Mon, 21 May 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Joyce to Vale]]> The miserable list of departures continues. The exit door is permanently set to "swing". With this lot in charge, it can only get worse]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/joyce_to_vale_916786/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/joyce_to_vale_916786/index.shtml Wed, 16 May 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Adams says no]]> He'll be a gamble to Bury - his rehabilitation will be crucial. Good luck to him, but it's an early example of how the reduced budget will affect us next season]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/adams_says_no_916760/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/adams_says_no_916760/index.shtml Mon, 14 May 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Released, retained and under contract]]> No real surprises. Some just weren't good enough to get us out of this division in the right direction. Adams is a strange one as he hasn't yet proved that he has completely recovered from his injury though the offer would suggest that he has. .]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/released_retained_and_under_contract_916645/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/released_retained_and_under_contract_916645/index.shtml Mon, 07 May 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Newport highlights]]> All I can say is, thank God it's over]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/newport_highlights_916628/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/newport_highlights_916628/index.shtml Sun, 06 May 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Bridges declares interest - McDonald not favourite]]> according to Jon Colman in the News and Star. The same selection process that appointed Curle? It will come down to who will accept the lower wage on offer]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/bridges_declares_interest__mcdonald_not_favourite_916471/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/bridges_declares_interest__mcdonald_not_favourite_916471/index.shtml Sat, 28 Apr 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[The Valiants view]]> The PV message board. They think we outplayed and outthought them, and were full of praise for Hill and JCR, thinking that they also need some experienced players in their squad]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/the_valiants_view_916470/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/the_valiants_view_916470/index.shtml Sat, 28 Apr 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Port Vale highlights]]> End of season occasion, but at least the better team won. Well taken goals, but a pity that Hope took another injury (hamstring?) towards the end. Just one more game to say cheerio to KC then three months off. Enjoy it.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/port_vale_highlights_916469/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/port_vale_highlights_916469/index.shtml Sat, 28 Apr 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[The Curle situation]]> Jon Colman's view on it from the News & Star, well written as always and he's right. This situation needs to be sorted out and NOW. I think that Curle will be gone by the end of the week to be replaced by a new man, probably from Scotland. Cheaper, see.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/the_curle_situation_916402/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed15/the_curle_situation_916402/index.shtml Tue, 24 Apr 2018 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Luton highlights]]> I thought this was one of our season's best performances, which isn't saying much, but it's too little too late. I don't expect to see any decent football at BP for some time, with a possible 25% reduction in the football budget next season. .]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed61/luton_highlights_916336/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed61/luton_highlights_916336/index.shtml Sat, 21 Apr 2018 21:00:00 +0000
