The odds on us getting relegated will have shortened considerably after that appointment. We must now be odds on!

Can only hope he proves us wrong but that's hardly inspiring.
Appears to be like Pressley, another manager with a modest CV lucky to get the job so won't rock the boat with the BOD and DH.
One of the least inspiring/exciting appointments ever... no doubt the cheapest option (bar skelton).
Having said that, as of today he is the manger,head coach,whatever of Carlisle United football club and has my support and backing 100%

Odd!

No disrespect to Chris, but I'm sure of the 100 candidates they were "exciting" names there.

Deserves a chance but Wow!

*Head Coach

Massive risk. Thought the only way we could hire a 1st timer is if it was someone like Bridges who could get fans in and get a bit of cashflow. Need to be wary of this head coach structure they've started.

Underwhelming. Certainly not one of the names people were mentioning. I have a feeling the horsemen have outdone themselves this time.

Do we? Already said he’ll select targets, will obviously pick the team etc.

No different to any previous, just a new name IMO...

Just got a text. Had to check this wasn’t a wind up.
I had some hope in EWM but I’ve lost all respect for them now. Going down going down going down. Non league tour next season

No different role, new name that is all as you say, Dan.
Nothing will change as the BoD have no money to back the new man.

he played a couple of games for us in the conference season and was pretty unmemorable

He must be a heck of an interviewee.

Just because someone is a household name or former player doesn't mean they're the right person for the job, but this seems a monumental risk to take.

Going so left-field with this, there is going to be almost no grace period for him with the fans to get things right. As soon as he starts making team selections/tactical decisions that people don't agree with they'll start getting on his back.

The board surely aren't stupid enough to not realise that. Not a huge amount to gain here but an awful lot to lose. Is this appointment going to put some off this protest against Grimsby, regardless of results in the run up to it, in the same way that Michael Bridges or Zigor Aranalde would? No chance.

Good luck to him, but this is a massive sign of the direction of the club. And I don't like it one bit.

It's OK, apparently he single handidly made Rochdale £25 million in transfer fees according to the article on the official site and then replaced the players that had been sold under the budget, even though he wasn't actually the manager.....

different Chris Beech according to Jon Colman
A Cheap option that has no real management experience with an emphasis on recruiting, development and selling young players on a tiny budget is the way I read it.

There were two Chris Beech’s playing at the same time.

This is our new Head Coach: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Beech?wprov=sfti1

This is the ex-Player: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Beech_(footballer,_born_1975)?wprov=sfti1

I hope he does a good job, but he’s under pressure straight away simply because no one has even heard of him. Say he starts off with a couple of defeats, fans will be on him straight away.
Im expecting a comfortable win for F Green in the FA Cup but Morecambe away is crucial! Lose that and we are in real trouble!

Surprise suprise another magnificent decision from the three amigos.
It beggars belief they can be so inept.
Probably deliberate two fingers to the fans.

Has anyone made sure that he’s the Chris Beech the board think he is?

Simpson came from Rochdale and hadn't done much there.
Mervyn Day had never managed until Carlisle.
I'd never heard of Mick Wadsworth.
They all did not too bad really. I hope Beech is a great success and wish him all the luck in the world. Taking a chance on someone who has been coaching in the lower leagues for the last decade or more might not be the worst idea in the world.
Win the next 2 and we might be alright...
To be fair though, he's more qualified to work in management in L2 than Michael Bridges.
