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.

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).
