Carlisle Utd's Peter Murphy deserves his salute without dispute

Peter Murphy photo Yes, he looked at his options four years ago. Yes, he still deserves a testimonial. Deciding whether or not to sign up to Peter Murphy’s tribute year does not have to be an either/or emotional tussle based on what he did in 2007. (3 comments)

Carlisle's Utd's Liam Noble must now show that he can take all the flak
