The people responsible for this mess will be the same people choosing the man to get us out of this mess.
Can’t help thinking if they interviewed a dead dog it would have a 50/50 chance of being appointed.

The decision will presumably be made by Holdsworth, Kid and Clibbens as they run the show. AJ and his crew haven't decided anything for a few years now.

Kinder is the jewel in the crown, he brings in the youngsters.


I suggest you read the articles from our last couple of appointments Marko. AJ fully involved, indeed interviews often happen at his house!

Kinder has recently gone part-time too…

Real prices are up:


Why are the favourites always people who've just been sacked for being shit somewhere else?


Neil Lennon, 25/1 :D - is that based on him being pissed in the Halston?

Steve Bruce should be available soon :D


Robbie Fowler out of that list. If he really wanted the job he could just buy the club with his cash.

Curle just signed the good players from all the other clubs
Pressley signed Scottish lower league players
Beech had his expected goals and players taken out by a pass stats.
None of them got anywhere.

Kinder is the jewel in the crown, he brings in the youngsters.

It might be worth bringing in Flynn or Sheridan (if they would come) on a short-term contract until 30/6 just to steady the ship. Both of them have enough experience to get us 12th with the players we have, I think. Then we plan for next season


I'm sure Mike Flynn would be up for that.

What you have to realise is the BOD don't want promotion so bringing in anyone with any ambition to go higher is a big no, no. Someone who will toe the party line.

Did anyone expect Beech to get the job last time. His name hadn't even been mentioned as hardly anyone had heard of him.

We missed the boat when Ian Evatt was at Barrow.

We’re up shit creek and people genuinely want to bring in Peter Murphy from Annan or the Assistant Manager from a Scottish League 1 team because he’ll be passionate?

Unbelievable…

What's Terry Venables doing these days. He was always a favourite of mine.

Most important appointment in decades. They haven’t spent any of the football fortune on players so they should identify a good prospect and go for it big time to get the right man - with a good signing on bonus and contract - even paying compo if necessary.

They won’t though.
I wish everyone would stop the weird obsession with bringing back former hero’s. It’s such a strange Carlisle United supporters psyche which is do not understand. They’re more likely to ruin their previous image rather than enhance it.

For me Andy Morrison would be a great option, a really fighter and did a great job with Connah’s Quay. Pete Wild is doing well at Halifax as is Phil Parkinson at Alty. First and foremost DH and NC should evaluate the strengths of the squad and find a manager that complements those.

Why do some want Skelton to be part of the new regime.
He has been part of the problem not the answer.

Flynn did wonders at Newport. Offer him whatever he wants to get him here and let’s start to build a decent squad


This board want to sell assets, not acquire them.

The choice is endless but I wouldn’t want to be responsible for choosing the right man.

I’d have believed Nobby’s list but Lee Clark was a shocking omission IMO…

Early prices from Paddy Power:

Graham Westley 1/2
Phil Brown 2/1
Keith Curle 4/1
Russell Slade 6/1
John Sheridan 10/1
Davey Irons 12/1
Greg Abbott 33/1
Michael Bridges 66/1
Neil McDonald 100/1


Graham Westley odds on favourite :D

Someone has obviously chucked a tenner down the drain for a laugh.
Keith Hill worth an interview.


With Beech as his assistant. Wouldn’t surprise me.


Skelton or Grainger as an assistant to someone like Hill might be worth considering.

Does it really matter who they appoint? They have proved conclusively that they couldn't pick their nose let alone a successful manager. There is a long line of managers for the lucky interviewees to talk to about the lack of support they will get from the board.

Nothing will change unless the rest of them go too.

Sack the lot before we go down.

Doesn't matter who comes in as the rubbish will continue. A mid-table finish will suit the BOD no end.
