Carlisle United lost the League One

The last few years have been nothing short of turmoil for the Carlisle United supporters, as they have seen their club slip down the lower reaches of the football league. The club are in a real danger of going out of the football league entirely after having just won the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy only in 2011.

They sit just one point out of the drop zone and even the two victories in the last five matches have not helped their cause. Strangely, most of the fans anger has gone towards the board. The Carlisle United directors have been urged to sell the club in order to give a bright future.

After having won the Johnstone’s paint Trophy, Carlisle United came close to getting into the League One through the play-offs. Since then, it has been downhill and they have had to change managers twice.

This even led to the long-standing Greg Abbott sacked recently. His replacement Graham Kavanagh did not fare too well and was sacked within 12 months. Meanwhile, current manager Keith Curle says that he wants the club to show unity in the efforts to fight against relegation. He expects the fans to start supporting the team as the season progresses. Carlisle recently witnessed their lowest attendance figures of just under 3500.

“Is it a concern? Yes. Does it show a lack of unity? We need to unite.We can’t have infighting, I’ll make sure everyone keeps focused.I’ve got a fantastic relationship with the owners, I’ve been helped in everyway possible.

Everything that can be shifted my way financially is being shifted my way.People get frustrated if they don’t have the lines of communication. One thing I enjoyed when I first came here was the interaction I had, staying in the hotel and going out on the city and speaking to people,” said Curle.
