Why can’t others be perfect fit like Sean O'Hanlon?

Sean O A certain kind of footballer must hate Sean O’Hanlon right now. Nothing personal, you understand. But that big bald head has sent into touch one or two cosy excuses often put forward for low performance.

Apathy? Not with this travelling army

Carlisle fans photo The clue is in the word: supporter. Another big hint came when Carlisle United took 516 people to Portsmouth, all of them trampling on the apathy myth as they made their merry way south.

Can Carlisle United afford Greg's old hands?

Lee Miller photo The trouble with “hardened criminals” is they have a going rate. Greg Abbott’s preferred way of putting a squad together is no secret but it is now likely to face a test it cannot pass. (5 comments)

Carlisle Utd need to shore up defence - but now can’t neglect the need for attention upfront

Joe Garner photo Defending from the front comes in many forms. As a requirement, it cannot be downgraded at Carlisle United just because Lee Miller has returned and Joe Garner won’t, after all, be coming back.

Will Carlisle regret selling Paddy Madden to Yeovil?

sm padymad The flaw in the comparison between Glenn Murray and Paddy Madden is that one took years to be a force at Carlisle United’s level, while the other is one now.

It’s up to Carlisle Utd's players, not Greg Abbott, to say why they froze

He’s a great survivor but concerns remain

Greg Abbott photo The list of long-serving bosses on the League Managers Association website, in which Greg Abbott figures highly, may be too prominent in our thoughts. It’s nice to see a Carlisle United leader climbing the charts but don’t stare at those rankings for too long.

Lee Miller photo Let’s say it happens again. Imagine the scene – Boxing Day at Brunton Park, Carlisle versus Hartlepool, Lee Miller’s comeback match. All is festive as the big Scot is roared back into the fold. (2 comments)
