Different types of player I think.
The times I have seen Cosgrove when he got extended game time at Fleetwood and Lincoln, and to lesser extent, the home games, he seems to play to hold the ball up and lay it off, bringing others into play.
I've always thought of Rigg to be a poacher.

Cosgrove doesn't look too bad when he comes on granted but he couldn't get in the North Ferriby team last year and has never ever scored a goal so he's just making up the numbers really. Where as Rigg always made a decent contribution when he played.

8 goals in 39 games is a decent return for someone who had barely trained at a professional level before being signed. Having seen some dross come through the ever revolving door i'd have preferred us to have kept him and worked with him. I know he's nowhere near being a starter but training and playing in a team with Adams, Jones, Hill etc will only make him better.

He has been given (more than) a fair chance , and Bennett isn't, currently , anywhere near the required standard. It's not even the fact that he's got no goals in 10 games, he just isn't talented/fit enough to be a professional footballer.

In the league he's played the equivalent of 4.5 matches & in the cup probably his 2 best performances But you are entitled to your opinion and thats fair enough. I feel he will get 10-15 goals before the end of the season, Which would be a great return for his first year in the football league.

Some absolutely top "former player is fantastic" / "A. Trialist is better than anything we've currently got" going on here, ladies and gentlemen.

Played 11 games since November 2015, scored zero goals, got released by a mid-table Scottish Championship side, and you lot are scrambling to sign him just because we're letting him make up the numbers in training.

Rigg had a decent first season for us when we were scrapping and battling for points, especially given the level he had just moved up from. He really struggled second season however when we were looking to play with a bit more finesse and was rightly released, his career since just goes to prove this. No thanks.

Bennett is a decent non league player, would love him to prove me wrong but he is currently a striker who cannot buy a goal.

Even if he did score it would probably be another eight before he scored again, the opposition teams he has played against have been of varying strengths and qualities but that doesn't seem to matter as he cannot score against any of them.

No goals in ten is a bit shit really when he has been given the chance.

Bennett and Hope weren't exactly the "cheap versions" though were they. If they're on a total of £3k a week between them and if we add on the £50k we're paying for Bennett then it's costing upwards of £350k over two years for two strikers who at present aren't up to scratch. At least if we signed Rigg in place of Cosgrove then we'd know what we were getting. Giving him £500 a week for a few months wouldn't exactly be the worst thing in the world.

50k for a player is also cheap nowadays.
If the club were paying good money to players how come we lost out for players to a lesser club like Mansfield?

The Chairman has always ran the club on cheap fees and free transfers. They can say what they want the facts are there.
If you pay peanuts you get monkeys.
Jenkins first stint in charge, old second division to fouth division consecutive seasons. Second time in charge, brink of the Championship to bottom division again.

The reason teams like Mansfield were outbidding us is because Curle spent all the money last summer when we were the team outbidding teams like them. Curle ran out of money and then went to Jenkins asking for more to sign Gary Liddle, and that money was given to him. The budget in the summer, albeit less than last season for the reasons mentioned, was spent predominantly on Kelvin Etuhu and Hallam Hope. They aren't here because they love Carlisle, they're here because they're getting a good wage in the same way that a lot of our players are. So you can criticise Jenkins for a lot of things, and rightly so, but making money available to Curle and those before him has never been the issue. It just so happens that the money made available has been used up, hence why possibly signing Rigg to make up the numbers is where we are right now.

He could spend the money instead on bringing in 2 players on loan from Premiership teams who are set for release in the summer. Then if they settle and impress they can be signed up for next year

When does the increase in tv money kick in? Curle will be banging in Jenkins door for his cut of that already. As we already have the position of 'attacking player who seems to do great things in reserve games but never gets on the pitch' position filled with Nabi. I can't see signing a player we have free transferred out once as a great step forward.

Dont see any point in signing him on a contract full stop if he's happy to use out facilities etc for free then if we got into a position to need him just get him to sign non contract forms and do it that way.

So, this is the Steven Rigg that was released by Curle as he didn't deem him good enough.

He scored just 6 goals in 40 odd games for us, and since has scored 2 goals in 17 games for Barrow and QOTS combined, and hasn't played a competitive game in nearly a year.

This, ladies and gents, is what you call desperation.

What a shambles.

It's pure desperation because our £50,000 summer signing striker has turned out to be utter cat shit with no potential to ever make it as a football league player.

Rigg is better than Bennett, and probably better than Cosgrove, so it's a short term thing until January when we can hopefully offload Bennett and sign someone league 2 standard.

I'm writing this off as an awful bit of business, Not good enough 2 year back and only got in the 2014/15 side because Curle refused to play certain players on big wages.

The 2015/16 season Rigg was left behind massively, I like anyone who will give their all for the badge but unfortunately his all isn't good enough.

A bit harsh really, the lad is just trying to get fit and as stated has had other offers - it isn't like Keith has said 'here you go lad have a two year deal'.

I would rather have Rigg than Joachim short term and currently that is all that it is.

I'm writing this off as an awful bit of business, Not good enough 2 year back and only got in the 2014/15 side because Curle refused to play certain players on big wages.

The 2015/16 season Rigg was left behind massively, I like anyone who will give their all for the badge but unfortunately his all isn't good enough.


He did get left behind in 15/16 yes, but we had Ibehre, Wyke and Asamoah who were all playing well that season.

Now our set of strikers are no where near that level, so as a short term thing Rigg is an improvement on certainly Bennett and probably Cosgrove. There's not much more we can do until January.

Hope he comes in and notches a few personally. Local lad who just wants to play football.

If you’re angry he’s got a deal, aim it at Curle and leave the lad to get on with it...

I'm not going to try to defend Curle, but don't see the harm in signing a local player for a few weeks who will give his all every time he pulls on the shirt.
I'm pleased to see him back and hope he gets his chance.
We've got millions of coaches at the club and I'm not sure what they all do, so the club paying a few quid to Rigg is the least of our worries.

I don't think he is any better than Bennett, just different levels of expectation.
