09 Jul 2014 18:23:05
Despite various links with Carlisle. Oldham have outbid them for the services of Grant Holt for a fee expected to be around £25,000.

The front man has previously been an established striker for Oldham's rivals Rochdale.

I know this is false, for one main reason, He told me him self it is rubbish, Carlisle is a team he is desperate to join.

£25,000 for Grant Holt? You must be joking right? Try upping that price to 50 times that, then you're in the ballpark of his value



09 Jul 2014 08:49:08
Rumor floating about that Grant Holt will sign for Carlisle United, Holt is not in the Wig-an squad at this current time and is currently at home in Carlisle were he keeps tweeting about pre season training but does not mention what team.

Carlisle United said to be looking at 4 previous players who are willing to drop to league two. Players rumoured to be Francois Zoko, Tom Taiwo and 2 others. They are also looking to bring in Jordan Pickford on a season long loan from Sunderland.

I believe there is truth behind zoko and taiwo however there is no truth in jordan pickford as he is being lined up for a move to the championship.

With Gillespie back it would also be a bit pointless signing, pickford no point loaning out a player not to play



03 Jun 2014 09:37:24
Lucas Akins is being chased by Bradford City and Carlisle united after being put on the transfer list by Stevenage

You've got more chance of pigs flying than Carlisle paying for a player

Motherwell appear to have made a dramatic U Turn with James Mcfadden. Following a transfer target ruling out a move to Scotland, Motherwell will offer Mcfadden a 6 month deal to prove his fitness.

Who was the other target?

3 positions we're after and seems reasonable but I will wait and see

Tom Cairney will complete a £500k switch to Blackburn Rovers.



04 Sep 2013 23:24:17
Tranmere have asked about taking Steve Howard from Hartlepool on loan until Christmas. Carlisle are also interested.

Why would Carlisle want another target man when our back up target man is good enough for Scotland's under 21 squad.

It goes to show how poor the state of Scottish football is when a player not good enough for a struggling Carlisle team can get into the Scottish under 21 squad.

He would be an average player in the conference at best.

If this stays as it is the club will be relegated Abbott has to go. If we bring a new manager in the crowd will be up by at least a thousand or more.



01 Sep 2013 23:47:22
Greg Abbott is trying to make a deal for a centre midfielder on transfer deadline day

Abbott could also be interesting in bringing a former Forward, Francois Zoko, back to Carlisle

Another FALSE DAWN it seems impossible for United to SIGN any players.
They are even unable to ship out Edwards - so much for is non ability even Lower Leagues do not want him



28 Aug 2013 09:41:56
Gregg Abbott said to be considering his position at Carlisle United after emergency board meeting after last nights defeat against Leicester.

The board have asked him for his resignation, but he wants a compromise.

Graham Kavanagh set to be installed caretaker manager until they can get someone permanent in.

Peter Beardsley and Steve Cotterill have been sounded out as replacements. Ex players Zigor Aranalde and Andy Preece have also shown interest should Abbott go.

Don't get carlisle fans hopes up.

we want abbott out



26 Aug 2013 12:02:38
Southampton striker Jonathan Forte is to be loaned out again after failing to find a buyer for the Barbados international, Forte has not been given a squad number this season so will just be playing for the under 21's if a loan move can not be found.

League one side Walsall are said to be interested in signing him on loan, the saddlers have tried to sign the striker on loan in the past (January 2012) but failed. League one sides Carlisle and Stevenage are both said to be interested in the striker aswell.

Why don't Saints just pay up his contract and get rid once and for all of this useless specimen, he sure as hell is never going to be good enough for Saints.

Go Forte, for God's sake go.

Please please please we have 6 strikers please stop linking Carlisle with strikers we only play with one as well we don't need that many

Slightly harsh to say he was a useless specimen, all the players played a part in getting us where we are today including J Forte, good luck to him although I thought he had already left. May only have been one game but MK Dons at home rings a bell.

I am going to be controversial. why does jf with all that pace want to be a striker? surely with the right coaching saints could convert him into a winger? He can use both feet unlike puncheon. Why not keep him as a project player and use him in the u21 squad?

Forte is far too old (27) to be a worthwhile "project player. " He will also never have the kind of first touch/ball control needed for the Premier League. I felt he was only marginal for League 1.

Jonathan 'THE FORT' forte is a top block met him down the Albert after a game against Stevenage and he bought me and my mate jimmy a beer each. Sadly though he is not up the prem league standard I think he'd be a star in the Scottish championship. Good luck to 'THE FORT' though. and he's always welcome down me old mans burger van for one of favourites a Bacon bap.




25 Aug 2013 16:31:06
Francois Zoko to train with Carlisle United this week are being told he can leave Notts County.

He will sign until the end of the season with an option of a further year, based upon appearances.

Gregg Abbott met with him on Saturday as Carlisle had no game due to playing Friday night.

I don't think this is true, would love to see him back but more strikers, and where would he fit in

the only players greg is now persuing are midfileders and defenders.

I know you want a good depth of forwards but we have, 2 strikers out and out strikers and, 4 wingers come strikers and 2 just wingers we can't fit him in

If he sends Campbell back to Newastle then he should fit in the squad?

100% not true.

Zoko has been told he can leave 100% true



15 Aug 2013 10:39:56
Carlisle set to sign Newcastle striker Adam Campbell on loan

Now confirmed on official website.

Heard David Holdsworth is to be named new carlisle manager. This will happen midweek

David Holdsworth as new manager? No thank you. A new executive / board and a realistic budget for the current managerial team is what's needed.

Grgg has now proved he is out of his comfort zone - totally inexperienced.
his assistant is no better so both should be gracious and leave.
the players signed this summer plus the loans are totally not league 1 standard.
so much for the scouts and football skills knowledge from gregg and kav.
a new manager and coaching staff are required pdq.

A new board yes. but a new manager is needed A. S. A. P.

If you think Abbott should remain you are clueless

He has managed a team with one of the bottom 3 budgets for 4 years and this is the first time we have been in the relegation places

22 Aug 2013 15:42:04
Stop making excuses for the man, he has just made his 75th signing for goodness sake, not bad for a man with no budget.


They are no excuse but the 75 players are down to budget he has to make short term loans of players who we don't even pay they're wages, its not something which is hidden go to companies house and look at the out goings of the club and you would relise this



11 Aug 2013 09:58:42
Free agent Paul Reid to train with hometown club Carlisle United, if he proves his fitness will be offered a pay as you play deal until the end of the season.

He is training with the club today and will sign on a non-contract basis for a month with the option of a deal until the end of the season if he impresses.

Sean O'Hanlon expected to be back for this weekends game, so Reid will more than likely will be on the bench along with Livesey, with Feely starting alongside O'Hanlon.



08 Aug 2013 17:24:05
Now Carlisle have signed Charlton defender Kevin Feeley on loan for a month, Mike Edwards will be offered a way out of his Carlisle nightmare, he will be offered on a free or a season long loan, likely destination will be league 2 team or a conference premier team somewhere closer to his in Nottingham

He's signed for a month, on Loan. It hardly opens the door to a player leaving does it!

Don't be to critical on the poster, if Feeley impresses over the month and wants to stay there will be an option to extend the deal, I think Edwards will have been instructed to inform his agent to find another club, on the 3 games evidence so far we need some changes, don't be surprised to see Berrett leave either, been shocking so far
