Hello folks,

The next CUSG Meeting is scheduled for next Monday (6th Sept).

This is a reminder that we will not be attending, having tendered our resignation from the Group recently.

If you have any Questions you would like raised via the Meeting, you are advised to email them in to the CUSG email address - Hello@cusg.co.uk

By all means post on here the Question’s you’re sending in, for discussion etc, but please note we won’t be sending them in for you!

We’ll still operate a Thread for these Meetings, as people like to discuss the information that comes out from them.

Thanks,

Admin.

I would start a fund to ask Fred to come back and take this crock of shit on again.Oh for a team which can play in the next league up, challenging for the Championship.Yes-believe it or not, the FS era was successful and exciting lest we not forget.

Bigger crowds, good football, good players and momentum.Despite this, a trust with zero cash, zero ideas, just a 25.4pc block to ensure the club has to borrow rather than secure long term money.

Have I missed anything?

Agreed. The FS era was exciting. I got the impression he demanded 100% from everyone associated with the club and the fans responded. Whereas today's shambles............

He’s a winner-and football is about winning.It’s not a popularity contest but I think Fred stands up well to those in charge or purportedly wanting to ‘invest’

We have been conditioned in recent years by the ‘allure’ of the relative safety of ‘managing, getting by’ and comparing ourselves with the likes of Bury to make us feel better.’oh look at Bury-without us, we could be next’

It’s utterly depressing to read this thread and the lengthy posts about 13 grand and where it’s spent in the club-FFS!!!!!13 grand won’t but a decent second hand Audi.

Meanwhile, we have 4 disparate shareholders, all without the ability to put money in or even raise it, clinging on for dear life, waiting around for a non footballing discredited Dubai resident to ‘invest’ in the future of the Club.

I looked up the definition of ‘Investor’ in the dictionary-I could find no reference in the definition to lending money with a debenture and floating charge plus PGs.It’s called a [censored] loan!!!!

In the words of The Cure, ‘how did we get this far apart, I thought our love would last forever’

And who tipped FS over the edge into leaving

We all know the 13k is a small amount that won’t touch anything and is a small issue in comparison to the big issues, but are we not allowed to discuss about anything until the big issues sorted? The ticket issues for example or diversity shite.

13k isn’t a lot for some, but some people I know personally with little money put towards it (stupidly in my opinion) and was livid with the suggestion as were many others. Yes it’s small but to him and his £200 it’s huge. There’s plenty of discussions on all areas of Carlisle United, this was just another one.

I completely agree with Laffy post, that’s how the club is. It’s dreadful but as long as we aren’t Bury or Stockport we’re ok. We’ve huge amount of debt that’s rising through interest, that we don’t know about, but it’s ok as they don’t want it back YET. We are told by Nixon they are the only party and they won’t speak to anyone else re investment.

We are trying to be self sufficient which is good, but despite the supposed profit last season we took out an EFL loan. There’s cash flow problems and due to being shite owners there’s no other income stream apart from supporters and football fortune, it’s highly risky.

The club have mentioned numerous times now through Clibbens that there’s no benefactor anymore. We are screwed if we don’t get football fortune.

As for Story I’d have him back, he won’t want it now. I didn’t like him but you don’t need to like someone to know he’s a success. When Story left they were cheers by some especially those close to the trust at time - I can remember saying be careful what you wish for?

Sorry Richard but arguing over £13k is just fog-and it’s still there-not spent unless I’m mistaken.

The trust should be trying to buy the club(with others)to engineer change-unless they want to be steamrollered into a deal because you and I know they have no practical way of preventing it in the current state.

I’m only interested in the bigger picture stuff to be honest-the small stuff is a distraction, a welcome one for those in charge, a happy deflection.

The trust buying the club - Christ!.

Not sure who would want to work with them to be honest. However if PD doesn’t take this on it’s looking likely it’ll have to be the trust in dire circumstances.

I’ll disagree as I think the smaller issues need discussed, there’s still room for them. It’s maybe though they are taking precedence over the main issue which supporters are either fed up about, know nothing will change or aren’t interested.

You know yourself that the current 4 have no interest in going or seizing power - even at their age otherwise they would have worked with you, Robin Brown, Lummy etc to get a plan together for the good of the club.

They don’t, they get panicky and diss them as they know there’ll be gone and then go after their own intentions of staying on by going after a dodgy billionaire for 3 years or panic calling Phil Day for “a loan” and signing their life away just to remain at Brunton park and be called owners.

The great example is Patty resigning and then coming back on board.

Plus we have a crap side and a powderpuff trust that don’t call this out and instead accept all suggestions the club says.

There’s die hard supporters that go regardless, some floating if there’s nothing better to do or walk away.

Simply summarised a lot of supporters know what the issues are and know there’s not a thing they can do about it apart from having nothing to do with it and walking away, all while the club stagnates further!
