Well I know Billy and I think he would shake things up a bit.You have as usual only highlighted the bad, not the good.


What would you do if he turned up to his first press conference wearing plastic shoes? #InstantDismissal?

Csaba Laszlo is a leftfield addition to the market, around 16/1.

Ex-Hearts and Dundee United…

Holdsworth mentioned a few have applied from down South, hope Tisdale is one.

Theoretically if we win our next 3 games in a row playing good football , would people be happy to give Skelton more time ? (I'm thinking no personally )

I don't think it's happened before but I agree with Piglet, absolute no to Billy Davis.

I would be happy with Tidsdale, nice bloke who believes in youth but doubt he would want to move so far North.

It needs to be someone strong, he will virtually have to carry a load of young players to the January window. Left field shot Curtis Woodhouse.

He also said if the right candidate was available from another club he's willing to pay compensation

I still can't get why people wouldn't want John Mcgreal , he knows league 2 was sacked by Colchester having taken them to a Playoff semi final in a very harsh fashion , they have exactly flourished since .

His football isn't not awful and he signs young players works with them

You can only pxxs with the cxxk you've got.

The conveyor belt at Carlisle will only stop when we have a the right squad and a winning attitude, and for that you need lot's of loot.

In those who make the decisions at CUFC, I believe we have a few with that attitude, however, I also believe we have a few at the top who believe "we are Carlisle United, in the North West of England" and have accepted that, in there view the circumstances in footy have changed, and we will always be a lower league Club.

They should study the likes of Heerenveen, look at the catchment area and what has been achieved.

I'd be surprised if they'd have even heard of Heerenveen, let alone which country they are from.

Do they have 7G pitches?

They have been in the Dutch Premier division for years and have a Population of 50k.

They are also fairly isolated up in Friesland.

' Heerenveen is one of the most financially secure Eredivisie clubs. A 2010 report by the Dutch football association showed that Heerenveen is the only Eredivisie club that has a financially secure budget.'

Words we can just dream about:

Because SC Heerenveen kept growing and the results were getting better every year, the club planned the first expansion of the stadium in 2002. The capacity of the stadium was almost doubled to 26,100 seats.

Throughout the years empty spots in the stadium were filled with seats. Together with some other changes in the stadium the number of seats increased to the current 26,800.

In 2011 there was a plan to have another expansion of the stadium, taking the capacity to 32,000. The construction should be ready for the start of the 2012/2013 Eredivisie season. The reason for the expansion is the ever growing waiting list for the club's season tickets.

Along with that, more people in the stadium means more income which leads to a bigger budget for the club to work with. However, this expansion was seen as too risky and financially unfeasible.

There were plans to expand the stadium to 29,000 seats over the course of the summer of 2012, however the economic downturn shelved these plans.'

Well I’m underwhelmed if that’s the list-I would be confident if I was Skelton

Pay peanuts, get monkeys.Where is the aspiration?

I would call Billy Davies-made for him


'Where is the aspiration?' - it walked out the door the day Story gave these 3 leeches the keys.

Prepare to be disappointed and you can only be pleasantly surprised.

Skelton's first pre-match interview is a total embarrassment.

Someone needs to tell him now Beech has left the club he no longer has to kiss his arse. But obviously, old habits die hard.

In order to improve you have to be honest enough to admit mistakes have been made and then explain how you're going to fix them. To sit there and try to make Beech sound like some sort of football Messiah is a bit weird, in all honesty.

To claim if we win on Saturday 70% of supporters will want him to get the job permanently is as deluded as anything Beech ever said.

They looked very chipper at training yesterday. Despite what Gavin Skelton says I'm guessing quite a few will be glad to see the back of Beech.

Utter shite, him as a manager, I'm sure he has applied

It's an awkward one we all want 3 points on sat but at the same time fear any success could lead to the 3 amigos taking the cheap way out and give Skelton the job, I've nothing against him but right now we need someone with the experience and tactical nous to get us out of the mess we are in.

Just been forwarded this on whatapp. Looks like it's been forwarded a good few times. Probs BS:

Keep this to yourself....I've just been contacted by a very reliable source...I've been told the clubs number one target for the managers job is Spurs under 23 coach Ryan Mason...He took charge of the Spurs 1st team last season...
It fits with Holdsworth saying the main target had managed at a higher level, was an excellent coach and based in the south..As I say its not common knowledge and the source of the crack was told by Holdsworth...


And your reliable source or sources been on the beer pal haha but that's one of very good pedigree Reg did say he would be willing to pay compensation if the right candidate comes available

Would be a definite coup to persuade Mason to come, but what's his experience of tier four? Did he play on loan for Yeovil at some point?

Anyway, he's southern based with a young family and appears settled at Spurs with a great position in player development. Why on earth would you throw that away to work for Holdsworth?

Anyway, he's almost entirely inexperienced in management at our level. Taking charge of Spurs for a few games at the end of last season with zero pressure and expectation is almost in an entirely different universe to stopping the rot in our squad. What's the comparison? Kane with Abrahams, Mellish with Son? It would be like asking a blind person to translate the Bible into Mandarin.

"Sources south of the border"?

What nonsense.

She's obviously friends with Bartley (retweets from earlier in the month, previous interviews etc) and he's the one feeding her the info (the rest of which she's got from regular bookies sites) and is going on what he's told her.

Bartley's obviously applied, but also obviously has a big flappy gob so will not be considered.

Ryan Mason, the youngest premier league manager ever

No prospective candidates spotted in the directors’ box or The Mullen Outburst Stand then?

Apart from the one former manager who was widely photographed of course.

The chicken has finally come home to roost this season is the culmination of 14 years of poor management by the 3 amigos. I pray I'm wrong but barring a miracle ie a change of ownership to an owner with the business nous and passion to see this clubs potential and have a plan to fulfil it.
Or a temporary reprieve by finding a manager who has a magic wand, even then unless there is a change at the top the decline will continue with only one end result.
