Good chance McCarron and/or Galloway could play tonight. More of an u18s team than an u23 team apparently (glad to see the competition being given the contempt it deserves).
£10 to watch is crackers (twice as much as watching Leeds on LUTV). Will give it a swerve.

Looks like McKirdy has signed for Port Vale, announcement later on.

Genuinely think that’ll come back to haunt us. I know his attitude wasn’t great but I do think some of the stick he got was undeserved.

Very good goal contributions in a poor side last year, absolutely nailed on to score against us when we play them.

Another example of Carlisle fans thinking a player is better than he actually is. A telling factor is always where they end up after leaving, McKirdy was being touted as a Championship player last season, he’s ended up at Port Vale on a one year deal after a trial.

Folk were moaning we sold Dempsey too cheaply a few years ago, a million quid was mentioned as that’s what Exeter sold Grimes for. Turns out Dempsey wasn’t actually as good as they thought, ended up at Gillingham via Fleetwood at the age of 24.

11 goals and 7 assists in one (not even a full) season on the wing isn't a bad return to be fair to the lad!

I doubt any of our wide players will manage that this season, potentially Toure.

Yet all the talk of £250,000 moves to the likes of Pompey and Cardiff were miles wide of the mark. He had to go through a trial just to get a one year deal at Port Vale - a sideways move!

Dempsey’s resultant achievements suggest otherwise. Failed in the championship and ended up as a mid-table league one player after a couple of free transfers. Potts has been a far bigger success.

There's a difference between having potential and realising your potential.

Injuries, poor coaching, being played out of position, not applying yourself or looking after yourself off the pitch - the reasons for not achieving what you might have as a footballer are as long as your arm.

It's fair to say Dempsey had huge potential for his age, and on this basis we sold him too cheaply. Whether he realises this potential or not is a different question and his current value is irrelevant.

Also, McKirdy's potential was clear to see last season (given it was his first proper season as a pro). Yes, there are obvious questions about his attitude and mentality, but a decent coach or manager should be able to knock some sense into him and remove the immaturity and petulance from his game. On his day he could be a matchwinner, so definitely worth a gamble at tier four level.

In your opinion he had huge potential, I’d say he looked a decent prospect. I don’t remember a clamour of clubs vying with each other for his signature, he earned himself a less than glamorous move to Huddersfield. Failure in the Championship and settling down as an average player in the league above ours suggests the transfer fee which he commanded was probably about right.

As soon as anyone looks anything more than half decent in a Carlisle shirt there’s always an exaggerated excitement of how good they are and how much they’re going to be worth. Westwood didn’t turn out to be a premier league regular, Dempsey’s proved he was never worth as much as Grimes went for, McKirdy hasn’t turned out to be (or at least yet) a Championship player leaving for £250k.

If McKirdy is as good as some make out then answer the following...

Why did nobody any better come in for him considering he was on a free?
Why did he have to go on trial at a club to get a deal?
Why did it take until 2 days before the new season starts for him to get a club?
Why only Port Vale?

All pertinent questions imo.

Frank you said " Westwood didn’t turn out to be a premier league regular". I agree he didn't. Unfortunately he signed for the wrong club - Sunderland.
Ability is all a matter of opinion.

He was named in the Championship PFA Team of the Year for 2009 in his debut season at Coventry. The season after he left I was told by Coventry supporters that the reason they did so well that season, upper league position, was because they had Westwood. They were relegated the following season.

Playing for Sheffield Wednesday Westwood again he was named in the 2014–15 Championship PFA Team of the Year.
Maybe he was just a very good Championship player. But he was, in my opinion, one the best two goalkeepers ever to pay for Carlisle United.

For me he was Carlisle United's outstanding player in our bid for the Championship. The Leeds away game stands out. Earlier he was named named in the PFA team of the Year.
He left Carlisle United for an "undisclosed fee".

Looked very calm and in control.
Then got injured. Fell to the floor with no other player near him.

Paddy Madden and Nakhi Wells have went on to score 260+ goals between them since Greg got rid!

After he contributed to our eventual relegation into League 2 he also used his vast experience to help Bradford nosedive to the bottom tier and Notts County out of the league all together. :D Top Coach.
