Unless work needs interfere, I'll be there. Good idea to not broadcast it live - it will save the usual susoects from being overly fulsome on how great AJ is for the club. Will Mark and Barry attend??

Nixon is going to be at Longtown Community Centre next Wednesday (I think) along with Hugh McIlmoyle for a 'meet the fans' thing as part of an all-day event at the Centre.

This is people’s chance to grill the ‘reluctant custodians’. Rather than sitting at home moaning on your computer, why doesn’t everyone with an axe to grind get themselves down and let the owners know what they think about the state of the club? Never mind the “what’s the point?” excuses, this is your chance, get down and give them hell.

A few years ago (2001-04) I helped Andy Hall run an unofficial Carlisle United website. When there was a forum on, I used to go with a tape recorder and tape it all. The. It was back home and rough type as fast as I could, send to Andy who would do grammar, spelling and make it readable, checking he had got the meaning correct and we'd get it up on our website for folk to read.

Why doesn't someone on here do similar for this forum? Then fans from away word get to know what was discussed.

I.ll be more than happy to attend. Wonder if we can say the same about Mr Herbert Andrew Jenkins and his sidekick Mr Phillip Man of Mystery Day ?

Money is on they.ll both be no-shows and that the club will maintain that they're unable to announce the line up until the very last minute

Ask Dan about when I ripped Knighton a new one circa 2001

If theres anyone on here who was at the meeting when Story stole the Supporters club.s 30 grand they.ll tell you I gave as good as I got to Story when he spent the whole evening trying to act hard by staring me out.

And i.d say I gave Clibbins and Nixon a good run for their money despite them both trying to avoid my question my acting dumb on the radio

Maybe its down to whos asking

When the club bother to reply to my request for information as to who will be on the panel i.ll be in a better position to answer.

But if people think i.m making a 250 mile round trip just to be put to sleep by that clown Clibbins and watch that Adrian cu.nt keep the mic in the hands of Jenkins bum chum club like that Arsehole Maxy bloke on Twitter today they have another thing coming.

But for the benefit of all those asking I will put out a statement in a press release before the event once I have been furnished with the required information confirming my attendance or otherwise.

Exactly CarlisleWhite a spot on guy who does a great job at United and at the boxing nights in the Crown & Mitre, not everyone who works at Brunton Park are to be blamed for the situation we have there.

Goes back to when I had an AAA pass under JC couldn't take a bit of constructive criticism from somebody with 30 years experience in the industry from what I know about him yes hes a big fan and does good things around the club but thats all undone because hes one of the Jenkins arse-licking club.

I despair that some of you cant see that when Jenkins goes there has to be a complete clear out of these people however well-meaning they are or all you.ll get for years is Well we didnt do it like that when Andrew was in charge "

NS - not sure what an AAA pass even is, but just think he's like most there - blinded by loyalty to the Club, not to AJ.
As I say, just a typical blues fanatic with a dream job (for him) working for the club he loves.
Far better targets to be aiming at I would say.

Oh go on then I will if you will

But from a message, tonight we're looking at Clibbins Kidd Atkinson Curle and Grainger apparently Now given that Jenkins seems to have adopted the role of some sort of recluse these days i.d say if you added Nixon and Dickenson plus maybe Mitchell to that it would be acceptable and I understand Clibbins may speak about the line up in the next couple of days.

Problem with folk from across the spectrum, is questioning dips in and out.

If it was Board/Trust only, it would focus on them. Likewise, if it was Curle/Coaches/Player it would be all about the football side.

A mixture just sees questions about Soup and Tactics interspersed with serious stuff such as the Accounts and running of the Club....

Agree and that’s why they’ve done it like that.

If it doesn’t have Jenkins/Nixon/SP then it’s a bit pointless for me as those are the people with serious questions to answer.

No doubt that Nixon is the main man down there. Jenkins is old and senile and Steve Patt is just plain thick. Nixon is a very good manipulator and a very good talker, he’s also a bluffer. Him convincing Jenkins to pour money into the club for the last 10 years whilst creaming the benefits is akin to a doorstep salesman conning his way into a pensioners home and robbing them blind.
