The thought of the FGB even stepping foot in Carlisle again sickens me to the core. The thought of genuine CUFC supporters paying to listen to the odious [censored] is even worse. Entertainment this is certainly not!
I want to go - but I’d feel very guilty about spending money for it. I’m sure it’ll be entertaining one way or another and have interesting stories about AJ and Carlisle United being Jenkins club and his reluctance to sell.
Would I want him back? Yes: we were all United when things were good, we were all United when things were bad, to get him out. Far more entertaining than now and there’s far too many fractions now that I don’t think will ever heal.
It’ll be interesting to find out what sort of state the club was in when Knighton took over from Jenkins.
The club was losing 5k a week and the bank had stopped honouring cheques. Directors wouldn't put money in so it was put up for sale. Harry Gregg was the middle man when MK approached the club. A number of debts were paid off for control.
I had some good times in this era.
My recollection was that; Michael Knighton and family paid themselves some very large amounts of money as directors? I recall him criticising fans and making a threat to take us out the league?
He took 5 grand and sold Tony Caig to Blackpool? I don’t like being bitter and I don’t like to ‘hate’ but for the love of God please don’t pay to go to this event; if was prepared to do it for free and to be completely Candid then fair enough.
