Why James Berrett's Carlisle Utd return should be a big deal

Carlisle Utd moustache photo All will be revealed by 7pm on Tuesday night, assuming the photocopier is in order. Team-sheet time is not always a moment of high intrigue but when Carlisle United’s next line-up is handed out we shall know for sure if James Berrett has joined the ranks of the indispensables.

Carlisle Utd boss Greg Abbott right to keep the faith

Lee Miller photo Two hundred and seventy minutes. Is that all it takes to bring on an attack of the vapours? Must we really watch Carlisle United’s next three games through the fingers until the cell door opens and Lee Miller is back on the pitch waging war against centre-halves?

Why it’s not wrong to play blame game

Rory Loy photo It was David Gray the singer, not the 23-year-old right-back, who sang Please Forgive Me, and that’s how it will remain until football can peer around its blind spot to any offences not committed with malice aforethought.

Home rule always beats away glories

The wonder is he lasted so long. Back in 2008, a 14-match winning run at Brunton Park bought John Ward precisely eight months of self-protection at Carlisle United. In the north-east, Mick Wadsworth lost seven home games on the spin and is now Hartlepool’s ex-manager.
