Inside Brunton Park with Jon Colman

Why don't Carlisle Utd play to the gallery more?

Tom Cowan photo It’s accepted that the Blues will not boast the most gifted squad in the third tier in 2013/14. Yet the need to engage and entertain the masses better is paramount.

Some players are worth the hassle

So, what were Carlisle Utd waiting for?

Eric Kinder photo There’s just one thing that troubles about Eric Kinder’s departure from Carlisle United. Had the club wished to keep him, they surely could have. (12 comments)

So what if fans didn’t rate Paddy Madden?

Paddy Madden photo Deep breath. One last word on Paddy Madden. It does not matter a jot whether Carlisle United’s supporters rated him or not. Whether we were right after all, or wrong all along, has nothing to do with the price of fish. (23 comments)

Can Greg Abbott lose his target-man religion?

Jason Price photo Evolution. We’ve been hearing a lot about that lately. The evolution of Carlisle United’s team and squad to a better place. What that place looks like? Not so clear. (4 comments)

Carlisle United must respond if this Celtic Nation grows

Mick Wadsworth photo There was a time, in some people’s eyes, when Gretna FC stopped being a fairytale up the road and instead became a danger. (31 comments)

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.

Carlisle Utd need business brains not bail-outs

Carlisle Utd board photo Acumen. That’s what is called for at Carlisle United now. Not appeals to the unconverted and the unsure, however tempting those must feel. (17 comments)

Abbott, stats and the ‘negative’ myth

Greg Abbott photo There are a few useful brakes against over-the-top football reporting, and it’s not hard to see them. Here are the best three: the league table, results, form.

Why Carlisle United's Lee Miller should not suffer for this con

A golden chance that Carlisle's trust must seize

Norman Steel photo Here’s an offer you can’t refuse. No, seriously, you can’t, because it’s part of the deal.

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)

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

sm leemillerrrrr 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.

How important are buses in this day and age anyway...?

If public transport is the future - why do councils insist on killing it off?
