The club have got to have a fans forum with the directors... (twice a season under EFL rules)...

Jenkins (majority shareholder) and select other directors must attend...

Personally I suggest people keep getting on at the club and EFL to host this....

And then ask these tough questions... rather than debating on a forum the answers.

Tbf to Clibbens he tries to answer the questions, but if you want ownership questions - you can force them to have a forum with Jenkins and ask him what’s going on....

Will he leave etc...

So what's the alternative, sit back and watch them slowly kill the club off? Is that what fans want to happen?


The club has been going for over 100 years...what's happening now has happened many times before...if you read one of the books written about the club, and cant remember which it is at the moment, going back way before Bill Shankley was manager, so pre1949, managers were leaving Carlisle after short reigns BECAUSE there was no money. There were low gates the team was languishing and even in the more recent past we've had hard times.

It seems to go in cycles of success and mediocrity.

Keeping CU in the league is this years priority

Staying away ain't the answer comrades

Last season the team who finished 24th had 40 points.

If Beech continues as he is in the leauge, we will scrape 43 points.

If we’d of kept Pressley on the form of his last 7 leauge games we’d finish on 46.

But yet people think Beech is an improvement ?

Compare his results v Plymouth, Bradford and Crewe to Beeches:

Crewe (SP) 4-2 Crewe (CB) 4-1
Plymouth (SP) 2-0 Plymouth (CB) 3-0
Bradford (SP) 1-3 Bradford (CB) 0-0

Arguably not an improvement on what we had before, what worries me is if we have had a new manager bounce...

Then we are in trouble.

It was mentioned at last CUSG:

Events

With a new head coach appointed, there was momentum for another football-focused forum. The group agreed though that there also needed to be a forum for owners/directors. Andy Hall said Chris Beech was happy to do a forum but wanted to wait until after January when he would be very busy. CUSG agreed the club should aim for two forums – one during January for owners/directors and one in March for football staff.

For me, it should be priority one at the next Meeting...

Appreciate if you could bring this back up.

Can’t imagine we’re going to get on in January at short notice.

If we win Wednesday their could be limited opportunities in Feb with rearranged games.

As regards attending the football forums it is the directors of the the 1923 board that have to attend. The holding board only owns shares in the club as well as loans. So Jenkins and Patto do not have to attend but some members from the 1923 board have to. Clibbins is chairman of the 1923 board not Jenkins and will attend those meetings.

Don’t kid yourselves that a fans forum will make any difference, very few will turn up and even less will ask anything demanding. Too many people moan on the internet but do bugger all in person.

Even reading this thread; “what we need to do is...”, “easy way to get shot of...”, “do this and they’ll be gone in no time”. Lots of people with solutions to the problem but nobody willing to back up their claims with actions. Perfect examples of the sad modern day phenomenon known as keyboard warriors.

The EFL charter specifically mentions the clubs majority owner which is Jenkins.

Phil day hasn’t put a penny into Carlisle United - the Edinburgh Wollen Mill Group have.... so they’d likely be major shareholder.

Don’t kid yourselves though.... we’ll continue as we are untill one of the custodians kops it.

The EWM taking over rumour is a convenient diversion tactic which took the heat of them blocking Lummy’s consortium.... they have no desire to sell hence not being willing to sit down with them....

And guess what we all fell for it.

Likely we’ll apply some more pressure to have another rumour leaked by a different channel to take the heat of the situation.

The crowds will drop, the budget will be altered accordingly until the point comes that EWM say no chance it can be sustainable now, Cheerio folk. Then the club will shut down and we’ll be watching Workington and Penrith. I suppose that starved them out in a way...


Jimmy - the Club would be cheaper to run but they would still be in place, that’s how they’d benefit.


Costs would be lower but so would income, which brings them no benefit whatsoever.

Ridiculous to suggest that we would be a more profitable club as a non-league outfit. They might be able to reduce the playing budget but the upkeep of BP will still cost far too much money every year to make any money.

Have you actually made your feelings felt to your employers as you have more opportunity than the rest of us?

Your idea of a protest is something that Nigel Clibbens could have drafted, it is so tame that it is almost what the board would want and maybe you are a plant orchestrating something that they can handle with ease.

You are aware aren't you Kes that posting your plans on here is hardly 'top secret' and catching the board unaware?

Barrys ideas would have more success than your powderpuff plan that sounds like something out of a teen flick.

There is no need for protest plans to be 'top secret' as they can't stop people from protesting or boycotting, in fact the whole point of protests is to make them see exactly how many people are opposed to their running of the club. The problem with protests in the past has been lack of awareness, so quite frankly the more open the better. If enough people are boycotting then that puts the pressure on them financially. And if those people who still go give them a relentless stream of boos and anti board chants it will make them uncomfortable and realize just how unwanted they are. And if Jenkins could be convinced the best thing for the club is for him to leave, I think he would. Patt and Nixon are parasites, but I think Jenkins does truly support the club. He just thinks it's best for him to stay, we need to try and get through to him that that's not what's best. I think he would be quite upset to think that once he's dead, Carlisle fans will remember him as the man who killed the club. But that's what his legacy is likely to be unless we get change.

If 1000 fans decided to protest outside BP at the next home match, there is nothing the BOD could do about it even if they knew about it in advance. They will happily have you kicked out if you are abusive, so be smart about how you protest. Keep it simple, non abusive and non intimidating, but a firm clear anti board message. Then you force them into either allowing the criticism, or kicking you out and then they are in direct contradiction to what Clibbens has said about criticism being welcome.

Have I got this right then, you’re not actually planning on protesting yourself but expect everyone else to, in other words do as I say not as I do.

No Barry, I don't advocate violent protest. A peaceful protest is more effective and you will win more people over to your argument if you are reasonable. And whatever I think of the BOD, they are human at the end of the day and don't deserve the kind of shit you say.

Kessler ...... I doubt very much if you`re a football fan , it seems to me you`re just looking for another soapbox to spout off on .
A demonstration will not make the slightest difference to the BOD , if anything it would only have an adverse on any potential buyer.

The best thing we as fans can do is get behind the team for the rest of this season and make sure we avoid relegation.

The problem with that is that so long as those 3 are at the club, anything else is just papering over the cracks. We might avoid relegation this year, but what about next year when the BOD have pushed even more people away, less interest among fans, less budgets? We've got to get them out, otherwise the club will die a slow death.

I think you're making an incorrect assumption there.

I may not be willing to travel 200 miles to watch a load of shite and line Jenkins pocket but believe me, if someone up there stood up to the plate and got some serious shit organised i.d be there like a shot just like I was every time there was a good chance of it kicking off against the Oystons at any number of locations around the county 2 years back.

In all seriousness though something needs to happen. It's been the same for God knows how many season - the board piss the fans off with something, the fans get annoyed have a go at them, there's suggestion of a protest, we win a match so the fans are happy so forget about the shit for a while and repeat!

The day(hopefully) positive change happens in ownership won't be expected or it just might never happen :-(

So the sound of booing for a few minutes will play on the conscience of Jenkins and finally make him crack?

Even if he wanted to, Jenkins is going nowhere until PD tells him to.

Have you actually made your feelings felt to your employers as you have more opportunity than the rest of us?

Your idea of a protest is something that Nigel Clibbens could have drafted, it is so tame that it is almost what the board would want and maybe you are a plant orchestrating something that they can handle with ease.

You are aware aren't you Kes that posting your plans on here is hardly 'top secret' and catching the board unaware?

Barrys ideas would have more success than your powderpuff plan that sounds like something out of a teen flick.


There is no need for protest plans to be 'top secret' as they can't stop people from protesting or boycotting, in fact the whole point of protests is to make them see exactly how many people are opposed to their running of the club. The problem with protests in the past has been lack of awareness, so quite frankly the more open the better. If enough people are boycotting then that puts the pressure on them financially. And if those people who still go give them a relentless stream of boos and anti board chants it will make them uncomfortable and realize just how unwanted they are. And if Jenkins could be convinced the best thing for the club is for him to leave, I think he would. Patt and Nixon are parasites, but I think Jenkins does truly support the club. He just thinks it's best for him to stay, we need to try and get through to him that that's not what's best. I think he would be quite upset to think that once he's dead, Carlisle fans will remember him as the man who killed the club. But that's what his legacy is likely to be unless we get change.

No munchy, if it was just a few minutes of booing I don't think that would be effective. It needs to be more than that. Every time they take their seats there should be a loud chorus of boos and anti board chants. Same when they get up to leave. A steady stream of anti board chants throughout the match. Banners with anti board messages displayed. People outside the stadium on match days handing out leaflets encouraging fans not to attend the match and join weekly protests outside the ground instead. We need to put pressure on the BOD and make them realize it won't stop until they leave.

The BOD are going nowhere till the end of the season .....Then that is when EWM will officially take over.

Even then don`t expect lots of money thrown at the club....PD may be a billionaire but throwing money around is not his style.
What we will see is ionger contracts offered to players, which i think we will begin to see in this January transfer window.

Long term the club has to be self sufficient,which we are beginning to see with our home grown players like Branthwaite, McCarren etc and investing in young players like Max Hunt.

Well, in that case, you should be reporting them to the FL as if you're correct they're clearly breaching their ownership regulations

I don't agree with you as far as i.m concerned they are simply the banker of last resort and like all bankers, they don't actually give a shit about the company concerned all they're interested in is protecting their money to the point where it's impossible for them to lose it.

And while they know Jenkins has 17.4 million under his bed and they have his PG they know they cant lose whatever happens to the football club.

Therefore the best way to go about this is to get into the vacumn in between them and start to spread the shit till it starts to stick

There’s far too many people on this forum advocating people to do things yet don’t do anything themselves.

This is for everything.

At least we’re not Stockport

There has not even been a banner put up to say Sack the board or anything in past 5 years, there will never ever be a protest until we get relegated then all hell will break loose , and the board will leave

With a pay off of coarse

Just an opinion

Charlton did a good job in getting there [censored] of an owner gone.

Supported the team but disrupted the games at every opportunity
