Inside Brunton Park with Jon Colman

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.

A player that Carlisle Utd shouldn’t have to face

lowelph Picture this: February 23 2013, Carlisle United versus MK Dons, a tight game between two capable teams, and then, in the final minute, Ryan Lowe goes clean through to win it for the visitors.

Carlisle Utd are not safe to assume anything yet

Lee Miller photo Back in 2001 the great foreign correspondent Robert Fisk visited the offices of his old student newspaper. After shaking hands with the editor, he rifled through some copies of the rag, emitting a series of strange screeching noises as he did so. (5 comments)

It’s high time to recognise Matty Robson’s growing influence and importance

Matty Robson photo Here, at last, is one thing we can surely all agree on: Matty Robson is Carlisle United’s player of the year so far and now deserves to be held in higher esteem.

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

Greg Abbott photo And if we pause the tape there, as Gary Neville might say, we will see the precise moment that Carlisle United’s players pulled the blame in towards themselves.

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.

Don’t expect Lee Miller to do it all himself

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)

Former Carlisle Utd boss Ivor Powell was a champion from pit to pitch

Ivor Powell photo It is always an affecting thing to see an old man cry, but Ivor Powell had no cause to apologise for the tears he was shedding when we met six years ago. (1 comment)

Greg Abbott can’t avoid these home truths

Why it would be mad to ignore Paddy Madden now

Paddy Madden photo Joe Garner scored two goals on Tuesday but did his manager a third good turn. Without his double, the question of Paddy Madden would have been one of the first to be asked, not the last.

Carlisle Utd need someone to make a big splash

Before even thinking these thoughts, never mind writing them, you feel like crossing yourself a thousand times, clutching on to the nearest religious icon and offering up pleas for forgiveness. An invisibility pill would be most helpful too, once the words are out there. (6 comments)

Garner’s revival sets Carlisle Utd boss some striking questions

Joe Garner photo Study the picture, and then speak up quickly if you’ve seen a more pleasing one this season. It’s both familiar and new: an old favourite happily restored.

‘He starts by fining you. Then he grows on you’

Murphy and Livesey photo Danny Livesey remembers very well the first time he encountered Peter Murphy, the man who would end up standing next to him for so many of the months and years to come.

Peter Murphy testimonial: A party for the people

S21290B Keiren Westwood, Richard Keogh, Kevin Gray, Ian Harte and Danny Graham sounds like a very useful five-a-side team, not to mention five parts of a fantasy Carlisle United XI.

Carlisle Utd must unite with floating fans

Time waits for no man. The hard truth of it is that, by the end of today, Carlisle’s previous game will be Crawley, not Spurs, and if we are not very careful an opportunity will have gone the way of autumn’s leaves.

A viking invasion we can all welcome

They came, they saw, they got the official Carlisle United teddy bear, and now they want to come back again, as quickly as possible, which still won’t be soon enough.

Jake Jervis is worth another chance

Jake Jervis photo Jake Jervis has not been everyone’s idea of a smash-hit signing but Carlisle United are not yet in a position to dispense lightly with someone who strikes once every two games.
