The bloke can win a game on his own and did so whilst terrifying defenders. He's one of the best players in L2 and you wouldn't have him back. :o
No too one footed, didn’t do enough for me.


I can remember three two one with Ted Rogers. He didn't do enough for me either.

Dusty Bin was a good player though. Some in the Paddock thought he was rubbish.

Amazing some saying McKirdy and Thomas were not good enough. I’d be astounded if we’ve replaced them with better.

Mckirdy had an attitude ,but he had ability above league 2 . That talent though is wasted due to attitude .

Thomas is the same sadly , he didn't have an attitude but he seems to have other issues which would impact his game.

Seemed common with a Pressely signings seems that their wasn't something right attitude wise. That's ok if you have one or two players but he built a squad full.

Unfortunately due to the ambition of the three amigos we are now a middle of the run fourth division club from the arse end of nowhere (according to most professionals who generally are more attracted to the bright lights of the big city, we don't pay very well so therefore we can hardly be choosy when trying to get the type of player through the door that Nathan Thomas etc.are.

Think its more to do with the 10k he was on at Sheff Utd rather than any lack of ambition, if hes expecting any where near that then its absolute madness to try and sign him on our budget if that's the case (even if we offered him a hell of a lot less). Plenty of ambition at our club at the moment 11 signings so far...and counting, and the great thing about these signings is 1. Two Year contracts and 2. players that other clubs want.
Plenty of info coming out about Covid, Season Tickets, Signings, and so on...doesn't sound like a club to me with any 'lack of ambition'
Come on you Blues!!!!

Devitt rumoured to have had talks about a mutual termination of his Blackpool contract.

But then bizarrely picked to play last night. Was awful and got hooked at half time.

Looks certain he will be leaving Blackpool if an agreement can be reached.

Not convinced hes what we need in our squad.

Carlisle 'legend' Nacho Novo has just signed for my lad's team, Biggleswade United, which has football journalist Guillem Balague as the club chairman.

BUFC play at Step 5 in the Spartan South Midlands Football League Premier Division, essentially one level below Workington Town.

Might bring down a couple of Carlisle United replica shirts for an autograph!

Fryer could be a decision we come to regret.

Had the potential to be an outstanding keeper with a bit of patience.

I would laugh my head off if Mckirdy winds up at Port Vale, no disrespect to Vale but he quite clearly thought he was too good for Carlisle.

I believe Toure will have a bigger impact than mckirdy.

He scored 11 goals with us and went missing in a lot of games. He was too lightweight when playing against certain players.

Port vale have got a decent squad with many well known players mind. 4 previously at carlisle Cullen, Brisley, Amoo and even Luke joyce is still with them

On first impression the players we’ve brought in aren’t anywhere near the level of the likes of Collin, Jones, McKirdy and Thomas.

We’re shopping at Morecambe, Stevenage and Hartlepool now! ?
