Fair play to referee Waugh

It's a shame Jock Waugh’s refereeing display was so poor on Monday, otherwise his little answer-back to Greg Abbott would have been worthy of more attention, and a bigger cheer, than it got.

MK Dons v Carlisle Utd was a lesson in style

Andy Welsh photo It’s time, surely, to nail the Great Lie: the one that says the only way to achieve results in football is to stop playing “attractively”, a word which should always be used in praise but is too often employed to condemn.

Why Carlisle Utd can’t cash in on play-off push

Zoko goal photo Not even jokes are recession-proof. Take the old one about the Scotsman who is so thrifty that when he drops a 50p piece and bends over to pick it up, it hits him on the back of the head. (1 comment)

A dazzling description of James Berrett

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.

None. There's little substance to what the Government is saying for the general passenger
