Current thoughts after a few weeks in? He’s steadied the ship for me... got the team doing more simple basic stuff right. He sees McKirdy as the lad with potential we all know. He’s coached Byron Webster to start playing simple league 2 defending... and his confidence is coming back. Proper coach with his head on the ground, unlike Pressley who seemed very stubborn and had lost it. Pleased .... ! To be in the 4th round FA Cup draw is superb!

Yeah I’m the same, he’s done well so far considering the mess he took over. After months of blindingly obvious bad coaching & players getting progressively worse since the start of the season under Pressley, Beech seems to be giving them some proper guidance and slowly but surely there seems to be the signs of a structure to the team, none of this green shoots bollocks, just the early signs of team of players that know their jobs. He’s not a miracle worker though, hence the couple of drubbings we’ve had from Colchester and Crewe and it will still take a few quality signings and a bit more time on the training pitch to get rid of all the shit stains left from the Pressley era.

I still think we’re crap off the ball, and don’t close gaps quickly enough. But I think we’re gradually getting a little bit better. Interesting Beech said post match that the team is still a good bit off where it needs to be in terms of fitness but it’s getting there. That’s very interesting seeing as Pressley harped on all summer about guaranteeing us the fittest team in the league.

I really do still worry about our league status. I think we have a decent coach in Beech but we still need 2 or 3 signings, I just hope the club see this and give him the backing to make sure the season is saved, then he can really get cracking in the summer when he can pretty much clear out as much as he wants.

It’s a bit early to say really. He’s better than Elvis but you’d have to wait to see who he brings in and how they fare before you can pass judgement.

We’ve actually done worse under Beech than Pressley. Pointswise.

Agreed there Nobby, but his record so far considering the cesspit he inherited isn't too bad at all, 2 wins 5 draws and only 2 defeats in his first 9 games, and also considering he's had a fair few injury problems (Branthwaite, Sagaf and Iredale) and he's working with players who he probably wouldn't have brought to the club in the first place.
Going to be interesting what he does in this January window and beyond.
But for me 'Carry on Chris' you are doing just fine at the moment.

Well Beech has only had 6 league games and has picked up 6 points.

Steven Pressley’s last 6 league games as Carlisle manager produced 4 points.

So on that basis Beech has improved the form slightly, points wise. Not that I read an awful lot into that, it’s more what I’m seeing, less of the shit tactics, less signs of players not having a clue what they are doing, less defensive horror shows etc.

If Watt is to be the standard of his signings we will be more than ok.

My thoughts on Beech is that he is a calming influence, I like how he talks. Give them their due, I think the board have chosen well this time.

The defending in the first half at Crewe was as bad as I’ve ever seen.

I totally agree on that.

It is my belief that CUFC is owned and run by (undisclosed). CLUBKILLERS

Time will tell on beech. Not a bad start and he speaks well. SP seemed like a nice guy but he was absolutely awful as a manager last year, given a new contract and was even worse this!
They don't do much right, but let's hope the custodians have chosen well. If they have, it will be more luck than judgement based on the last few years appointments.

Elvis had a system of play that the current squad wasn’t capable of playing
He destroyed the confidence of some of the players Webster and Elliott spring to mind
Give Webster his due since Beech came in he has looked a lot better

Still ot convinced on Webster..if he could have jumped to intercept the cross that led to their 2nd before it got across goal we'd be sitting on a win

To be honest, we don't have many Franz Beckenbaurs or Alan Hansens in our league, so why pretend we do.

We can't all play like Man. City.

I would love to see a statistic showing how many goals have been scored playing out from the goalie as opposed to how many have been conceded.

I think Beech may have twigged.

You don’t have to look at statistics just watch the Premier league highlights goal after goal are mistakes at the back
Bradford City on Boxing Day was a good example they were playing out from the back and we should have won that game late on due to a mistake

I don`t think we should read to much into the two Crewe games , technically they are by far the best footballing side in the Division and we won`t play a better team this season.
In both games they gave us a football lesson in how to pass and move and totally played us off the park.

We are showing much improvement under CB and maybe two or three more additions in January perhaps a striker /attacking midfielder and a left back should see us move well away from the relegation area.

I just wanted to say absolute credit and a thank you to Chris Beech.

In 30 years of support I’d never felt so disillusioned as I did with the mess that Steven Pressley left us in. I’ve been annoyed and frustrated with the club many times in the past, but never like this. This time felt different for me. This time I’d absolutely given up to the point where I wasn’t even checking the score on a Saturday. I felt like we no longer even had a “team” worth caring about. I’m an exile and I can honestly say that I’d started to feel embarrassed to tell people I was a Carlisle fan during Pressley’s reign. To complete dismantle and destroy the solid foundation built up by Curle and Sheridan in such a short space of time was truly remarkable. Football Terrorist indeed.

I didn’t expect this at all when Beech was appointed, but in just a few short months and a one transfer window he seems to have completely transformed us into a “team” worth caring about. A team worthy of supporting again.

Some brilliant (in perspective) permanent signings. Some current players like Webster and Hayden transformed beyond recognition. I don’t think we could ask for more in such a short space of time.

Also fair play to the board and DH etc. Whether it’s down to good luck or good decision making, somehow they seem to have got it right this time. I actually feel excited for the future again.

I agree with much of what you say.

First match for a couple of months yesterday and the contrast between them and now is stark-we looked like a team yesterday and played an aggressive, attacking strategy against the best team in the league.Confidence and spirit which was absent is now there for all to see.

Off the pitch, you cannot criticise the last few weeks.Good trading of players, debt reduction and a manager who seems to have a way which will resonate with the fans.

Early days but I saw a different club yesterday to the one before Xmas

Well I'm expecting us to come comfortably mid table I couldn't have said that when he took over after the carnage he took over he's everything I hoped for in our manager and if we continue in our improved performances I would be already be thinking of an improved longer contract .

Be just and fear not

I really enjoy listening to his interviews, particularly post match he is always very calm and pragmatic win, lose or draw. He seems passionate about making the club a success and wants to really succeed for the supporters. I like him.

I stopped going to Brunton Park in October as I could no longer stomach any more of the garbage being served up. I went yesterday and was astounded at the difference CB has made. He's produced a team that plays to its strengths with spirit and passion. I left the ground entertained, satisfied and happy. Not been able to say this for a long time. Well done Chris Beech.
