Patrick Brough  photo The kids are alright. We have known this for a while, and now so do England’s Under-19 set-up, who scouted Carlisle’s Patrick Brough – made in Silloth – at Tranmere this week.

Sadness that shows Carlisle United’s strength

flloyd1 The shirt is still there, pinned to the fence above parking bay 49. The club say there are no plans to remove it. They say they know what it means. One dearly hopes, at the start of this new season, that they do. (7 comments)

The dangers of Nation building

Frank Lynch photo Well, that all ended sweetly. “It is impossible for me to take care of this thing,” said Frank Lynch, erstwhile owner of Carlisle United’s neighbours Celtic Nation, making his club sound like an unwanted pet or an unruly house plant. (4 comments)

Why this is now Kavanagh FC

Graham Kavanagh photo The departure of Davie Irons came as a surprise, but not for the obvious reason. It is said that the timing was curious. Perhaps so. But what time is ‘usual’ for hirings and firings in football? (2 comments)

No blame culture? Maybe we need one

There are two versions of the game Consequences. One involves writing down the start of a story, then covering the words up and passing the folded paper along to the next person, who adds the next bit, and so on. (12 comments)

Carlisle United saviour must have staying power

Carlisle Utd must be up to it, not just up for it

Carlisle Utd photo Carlisle United need another Kevin Gray, all right, but not for his huddles, or team-talks, or leadership, or “fight”. They need Kevin Gray the very good defender first. The rest is detail. (8 comments)

Is 3-5-2 Carlisle's magic number?

David Symington photo A lot can happen in six years. To many football clubs, that means a good five or six managers. Heck, it’s even long enough for Carlisle United to get through a couple.

Carlisle Utd have too often been a striker light

Whatever happened to the striking double act that never was?

Miller and Guy photo It is assumed that Carlisle United have tried just about everything to improve their goals-for column in this relegation battle. Not quite. Even now there are certain experiments that have barely left the laboratory.
