We shot ourselves in the foot, allowing their spoiling tactics and shoddy refereeing to put us off our game. Poor goals to give away and all our own fault. Not what you need to keep the crowds coming]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/mansfield_highlights_936306/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/mansfield_highlights_936306/index.shtml Sat, 17 Aug 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Barcode striker in]]> Young but everyone speaks highly of him. He could be a proper number 9, a novelty for us, or play next to one — Hope? No need for false 9s now!.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/barcode_striker_in_936224/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/barcode_striker_in_936224/index.shtml Thu, 15 Aug 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Barnsley highlights]]> Did we win then? With 28% possession? Barnsley don't feature much in the highlights; the final score could have been 1-5. Lofty needs to improve his finishing, and where will Hope play when fully fit? Not wide, surely?.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/barnsley_highlights_936116/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/barnsley_highlights_936116/index.shtml Tue, 13 Aug 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Swindon highlights]]> By all accounts we were rubbish, but still managed to score two. The defence urgently needs strengthening or a fresh approach and the whole team needs passing lessons. We'll struggle playing like this]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/swindon_highlights_936073/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/swindon_highlights_936073/index.shtml Mon, 12 Aug 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Crawley highlights]]> We were comfortable for most of the second half, and Crawley were poor, but it's nice to get a win first time out. It'll be a sterner test at Swindon next week. Highly entertaining game though]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/crawley_highlights_935586/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/crawley_highlights_935586/index.shtml Sat, 03 Aug 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Mo Sagaf signs]]> After a longish trial period. It's good to have cover in midfield and he's a player that's developing, so let's see what happens. Welcome aboard, Mo]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/mo_sagaf_signs_935585/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/mo_sagaf_signs_935585/index.shtml Sat, 03 Aug 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Striker loft in]]> Leicester lad, six foot four, fairly untried, hope he likes the bench. This is just fleshing out the numbers, surely?.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/striker_loft_in_935514/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/striker_loft_in_935514/index.shtml Thu, 01 Aug 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Another midfielder in]]> He sounds useful, so we'll wait and see, bur he's another season-long loan who possible could be recalled at the end of the year. The question is, will we have Carroll at Chistmas?.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/another_midfielder_in_935456/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/another_midfielder_in_935456/index.shtml Wed, 31 Jul 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[We've Signed A Forward]]> .who I will call OO because I'll never remember his name. Another loanee, but will a good scoring record at our level. Good luck to the lad]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/weve_signed_a_forward_935310/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/weve_signed_a_forward_935310/index.shtml Sun, 28 Jul 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Hayden signs]]> Don't know enough about this lad to comment. He's plenty of lower league experience so he could come in handy next season, if he stays on. But where's these forwards. Eh? EH???.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/hayden_signs_935306/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/hayden_signs_935306/index.shtml Sun, 28 Jul 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Ross County highlights]]> The game that I listened to was one where we were under the cosh for the whole of the game. Selective highlights won't hide the fact that we're threadbare; games are being played with formations that won't be used even next Saturday. Time wasted]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/ross_county_highlights_935247/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/ross_county_highlights_935247/index.shtml Sat, 27 Jul 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Tranmere highlights]]> Advice for Tranmere? Hit the target, not the woodwork. A decent display by all accounts. Will 2 goals be enough to earn Thomas a contract, or is he too similar to Nathan? Probably not]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/tranmere_highlights_935098/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/tranmere_highlights_935098/index.shtml Tue, 23 Jul 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Welcome back Nathan Thomas]]> I liked him last season, especially in the last few games, so I'm pleased to see him back, and for the full season. We need to know about Hope's injury, but we still need a couple of strikers of his calibre or better]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/welcome_back_nathan_thomas_935094/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/welcome_back_nathan_thomas_935094/index.shtml Tue, 23 Jul 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Fleetwood highlights]]> BY THIS STAGE OF THE FRIENDLIES WE SHOULD BE STARTING TO PERFORM. We're not. I can't put it more clearly than that and although it's not the beginning of the end, it is the end of the beginning - our evolution is happening too slowly. We will suffer]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/fleetwood_highlights_934968/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/fleetwood_highlights_934968/index.shtml Sat, 20 Jul 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[What sort of loan striker is this?]]> Not exactly a goal-scorer is he? What sort of figures are those? None in 22 last season, 4 in 29 the previous season. Didn't exactly set the world alight in the league either. We need proven talent and quickly]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/what_sort_of_loan_striker_is_this_934837/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/what_sort_of_loan_striker_is_this_934837/index.shtml Wed, 17 Jul 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Penrith highlights]]> A stroll in the park, but some good finishing.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/penrith_highlights_934745/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/penrith_highlights_934745/index.shtml Tue, 16 Jul 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Two years for Dixon]]> I'm pleased for the lad, but is this the attacking midfielder that we're supposed to be signing this week? I wish him well though, and no doubt he'll be straight in the shop-window if he's any good. That's the Club that we are, and always have been]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/two_years_for_dixon_934507/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/two_years_for_dixon_934507/index.shtml Wed, 10 Jul 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Hibs highlights]]> Worth a look, if only for Grey's inconsistent goalkeeping. Not bad for a first runout, and a chance for the kids to show what they can do, But we need strength in depth BADLY]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/hibs_highlights_934430/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/rprt/mtch/hibs_highlights_934430/index.shtml Tue, 09 Jul 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Another defender in]]> More experience, works for me, so I hope he does well. Enough of the defenders now though, we need a strike force urgently. I prefer a squad in place before the friendlies. .]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/another_defender_in_934218/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/another_defender_in_934218/index.shtml Wed, 03 Jul 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[What price McCarron?]]> We know he'll likely be going, and we won't be told how much, but is £250,000 right? Is there a bidding war if Wolves and Derby are sniffing around? Put in a sell-on clause and bite their hands off]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/what_price_mccarron_933984/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/what_price_mccarron_933984/index.shtml Sat, 29 Jun 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[New defender in]]> Brilliant, size and experience are just what we need. Now just concentrate on who's actually going to put the ball in the net, eh?.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/new_defender_in_933711/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/new_defender_in_933711/index.shtml Sun, 23 Jun 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[New strip]]> A bit dull but worth a look. I like the away set better.]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/new_strip_933625/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/roll/ed16/new_strip_933625/index.shtml Fri, 21 Jun 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Scougall re-signs]]> Seems a decent signing. His game is forward-thinking, though he makes mistakes but he's developing and ambitious. Good luck to him]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/scougall_resigns_933599/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/scougall_resigns_933599/index.shtml Thu, 20 Jun 2019 21:00:00 +0000 <![CDATA[Attacking midfielder in]]> No bridge jokes, ta. He may need to beef up a bit and step up but he's been given a chance - now he needs to take it. I hope he goes Forth and doesn't hit troubled water Sorry]]> http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/attacking_midfielder_in_933561/index.shtml http://www.carlisleunited-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/attacking_midfielder_in_933561/index.shtml Wed, 19 Jun 2019 21:00:00 +0000
