Not surprised at our start, there or there abouts where I thought we would be though many predicted doom for the stags.

Early days but can't beat points on the board, I'm happy are you?

COYS.

I thought there was one of these after 10 games? Which is a bit of a benchmark.

I don't want to say anything, it's a decent start but let's go from there

Yeah we're level on points with Mansfield and 4 points off top spot, but I'm not going to prematurely ejaculate after just 11 games.

I think if you'd told most Carlisle fans before the season we'd be level on points with Mansfield after 11 games, they'd have gone 'fuck's sake, another relegation scrap then'... I guess most Mansfield fans would have said the same if told level on points with Carlisle.

It's good to see Adam Murray was given the opportunity to put together the side he wanted.

Over the moon. I thought we would improve this season quite abit on last seasons effort. To be sat in the Play Offs though with one of the best defensive records in the division is more than I expected. If we can avoid any serious injuries then there is no reason why we can't get a top 7 finish IMO. Pearce and Taff at the back are forming a brilliant partnership, Something we've not had for about 10 years. We've got goals being scored by players you wouldn't expect it from which is pleasing. We seem to be a real force when attacking corners aswell for once!

The only disappointing point for me so far is Matt Green's slow start to hitting the back of the net. He's playing well though so I'm not too worried. Excellent work to win the Penalty and assist Yussef's winner yesterday. Never seen a penalty struck so tame though. Still think he'll have 20 come May.

Damn right, you looked alright on the opening game of the season though.

The only downside is that we were too conservative at home in the 1st 3 home games which we drew. After that we thrashed Crawley 4-0 and drew 0-0 with Plymouth at home, so least there's signs we can do something.

Newport at home next week!

Very happy and surprised with our start which has been topped off by an awesome 6 point week. Looks like the top 7 could have a few of the 'smaller' teams in it again which is nice - the likes of us, Mansfield, Accrington and Wycombe - but I'm not quite sure yet that we'll be one of them, all we can do is keep going as we are and we could be up there come May if we can tighten up the defence a bit. First move though has to be to sign Curle, Dykes and a few of the new signings up to longer deals so that we can start building something more long-term.

He has scored 4 in 10 I believe which isn't too bad considering he's looked about 80-85% as well as equating to around 18 goals this season. Think his penalty told a story about his confidence in front of goal at the moment needs a good run of goals.

Not very happy, unless something changes, we're in for a long season.

No. We've been awful. I would say there's potential in the squad though so not total doom and gloom. But we should be higher given our fixtures so far.

I feel like an Arsenal fan (after an Olympiakos like defeat). Everyone can see the problemS, the management can't or are too stubborn/loyal to fix them though.

I'm never happy, doctors think it's down to self-esteem, my grandma thinks it's due to a lack of religious faith.

I shall issue a further update after 12 games.
