No title

After Carlisle’s fine showing at Goodison Park last weekend, I ventured back onto the Liverpool Echo’s website in search of Nigel Martyn's version of events.

Goal-hungry Carlisle Utd must bolt their back door

After the chaos comes the scrutiny, and today our task is to set to one side the bubbling drama of MK Dons 3, Carlisle 4 and get to work on the one clunking flaw which will continue to hold back this perplexing Cumbrian season.

A Colman clanger...

Graham Kavanagh photo My humble apologies to Graham Kavanagh for the mental short-circuit that caused me to credit Ian Harte, and not United’s player coach, with the free-kick from which Vincent Pericard claimed Carlisle’s third goal at MK Dons on Tuesday night.

Carlisle United's man of the decade

DC kevo This week I sat down to figure out Carlisle United’s man of the decade and into the mind’s eye appeared a figure in a suit, one in a tracksuit and one in blue-and-white kit with captain’s armband.

Why David Allen’s blast should go beyond the boardroom

Carlisle Utd board photo At least one thing has changed for good at Carlisle United in the last 48 hours. No longer can the club’s controlling quartet be referred to as ‘The Drab Four’, and that’s not just because their number has been trimmed by one.The record will forever say that United shed a seven-figure sum on an accountant’s watch, which is either an indictment of Allen’s own powers – recession notwithstanding – or an exposé of the too-cautious personalities he fought but failed to convert in the boardroom. Either way, it is an unsatisfactory end for an otherwise successful local business figure (while blemishing the other three in the background).

So will Madine be the new Murray?

It may take more than three months for us to conclude whether Greg Abbott has just had his Glenn Murray moment in dispatching Gary Madine to Coventry, but we need not wait a moment longer before leaping on the teenage striker’s choice comments on the straining link between terrace and pitch.

Nixon’s got a lot of bottle

The silver-haired chap you might see throwing water bottles to United’s players and passing substitute information to the officials today is Colin Nixon, the Blues’ new assistant kitman.

What’s the best role for Scott Dobie?

Carlisle action photo GREG Abbott went in slightly heavy-handed when he claimed recent criticism of Scott Dobie was “bordering on the ridiculous”, but he still opened the door to the need for a proper debate on the enigmatic striker’s qualities.
