I'm honestly not - he was the only player I see that had something about them, that could play at a higher level and score goals. I got stick about it then, when every man & his dog said he'd do nowt and Stockton would be a better player.

I'd maybe add O'hare, he was on loan though, but there's not many we have had recently that you can honestly say can play at a higher level.


Say you thought he looked like a good player.
Say you thought he should have been given far more of a chance.
Say you thought he had potential to play at a higher level.

Any of those things are just about plausible, partly because I do remember you saying similar things at the time. I didn't agree with you then, not many people did but you did call it.

He made 3 league starts for us and scored once. So to say you thought he was one of our best players from the last 7 years makes you look a complete fool.


I completely agree, it sounds completely ludicrous, but even though he only played 3 games he had more about him than any other player recently.

I'm happy to agree to disagree but we can all agree he has done very well and hopefully will make a tonne of money, that will go some way to getting the clubs balance sheet looking better.

At least we’re not Stockport

I watch a lot of Championship football on sky and Aberdeen v Rangers was nowhere near that standard.

Rangers are on par with QPR and our Carlisle League 1 side would have beaten Aberdeen comfortably.

Seen on twitter earlier that Middlesbrough have decided not to bid for him having gone to watch him against Rangers the other night, no idea how to quote the tweet onto here though

I think he would struggle in the Championship at the moment but still young.

I'd say he's League 1 level at the moment.

That may because we werent in a position to sell him at all. He'd already agreed to join them in the summer for free. They paid us a nominal fee to get him earlier. Im amazed that they did agree to a sell on if it turns out they did.

“Aberdeen signed Cosgrove for around £25,000 from Carlisle but now his value in the millions although his former club would also be due a sell-on.”

...and apparently no sell on clause according to their manager.

Generally the bigger the club the higher the transfer fee will be paid.

For example if Bradford or Plymouth had Cosgrove or Branthwaite I can guarantee a bigger fee would have been paid.

Carlisle are now as tin pot as clubs come and everyone knows it. Feed it a few scraps and it will bite your hand off!

So lets be pessimistic and say we get 600k from the Cosgrove sale.

Add to this the 750k from Everton and if Portsmouth did swoop for McKirdy another 250k.

Then there was the sale of the two lads to Leeds and the money from when we were on the television.

If the two transfers come off then we could well find ourselves with around 2m in football fortune money this season, even if they don't it has still ben a very lucrative season by our standards.

If there isn't a sell on, someone or some people need sacked.
All the "windfalls" would have been transformational in the past, now I'd be amazed if anything other than bit of loose change finds its way into playing side. I can only see it going to reducing the EWM debt and so reducing the personal guarantee exposure.

If recent form and results are a sign of things to come then I'm more optimistic about staying in the league. Pressley would have got us relegated and gone on to give a speech about how at least statistically we passed the ball more than any other team.

I'd be surprised if New York Redbulls have enough money to prize Cosgrove away from Aberdeen.

They're very much the poor relations in New York after Manchester City started a club there - I'm not sure they've ever paid over £1 million for a player before.

Cosgrove would probably do quite well in North America but the standard over here is only tier three English league, so not a fantastic career move for him.

Mind if he did go, and did well, he’d likely end up at RB Salzburg as part of the ‘programme’.

New York then Austria certainly appeals more than Stoke or Boro!

And with Pressley it would likely be 0. We aren't doing brilliantly but for the first time in a while I'm more optimistic we'll still be in League Two next season. It's not a good form by any means yet but I feel like possibly the ship is being steadied. But I don't want to be too hopeful just yet.

Yes but for real. We're actually scoring goals and getting results, nothing great just yet but it's a start and I'm feeling a bit more positive about the rest of the season.

No matter how much we get or don’t get, to use a club term. The “vast majority” will be going to pay back the massive losses the CLUBKILLERS have racked up.

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