Been struggling to get into a save for last few weeks, Have played a season at Carlisle, a club I have never managed and have no links to. Also feel like I have never or rarely seen anyone talk about managing this side.
What inspired me to try Carlisle?
Geographically located is closer to glasgow than another english club? ( i think I read that somewhere?)
Nice plain basic kits - easy on the eye
Did once play top flight football, but for the most part in the lower part of football league.
Large stadium to work with and it is very old and looks dated and has a derpy quirk (shame its not in the 3d engine ) Also it has Alot of terraced sections!
The derp is the stand on the left, overlapping the pitch?
2,000 season ticket holders
We had 26k to spend at start of the season and an aim of mid table, the squad had alot of loans in and few xpirenced players along with a dabble of youngsters, the ability looked like it could sneak into the playoffs So I was happy to have board expect mid table.
So how did my first season end up?
An unexpected 3rd place finished! happy and both scared of what next season will hold for us! we were in playoffs for alot of season, but the top 7 were always neck n neck hence very very close at the top!
Even though alot in I was most happy with Maynard and Eisa.
Hope and Devritt were my favourite players, Edge the defender came through my youth intake!
Looks good, but will he reach full potential at this club, probably not.
