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

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

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

Carlisle Utd have too often been a striker light
