We’ve had 18 in all comps.

Only Devante Dave is in double figures though.

pointlessly passing the ball around and not doing anything with it does not make you a good side.

Could you drop Boss Embleford an email explaining that exact thing, please?

We're unbeaten in the last 6 league games and Mullin has only scored in 2 of those games. If we rely too much on one player it's Hoolahan.

Oh so it's actually a 40 something year old winger you rely too much on?

Im sure he will keep you right in the league above if you get there.

Where would Carlisle be without their world class center back?

You mean the one who is at his peak?

We were doing fine even before he arrived, we just felt like strengthening our squad, which is the stronger than yours.

Would you swap your squad for Wes Hoolahan, Paul Mullin and Joe Ironside? I know I wouldn’t.
You may have a bigger squad but our starting XI is stronger than yours.

I will be watching at 2.30 to see how you fair today.

No I would not want an old man and a Tranmere reject playing for us thank you.

Whenever we've had any players out injured we had no real worries as someone just as good was able to come into the first team, whether from our reserves or youth team.

When Super John Mellish was out injured and our reserve back up also out, one of our youth players had to step in and he ended up getting man of the match!

Carlisle have got 6/7 quality attackers, if their starting 3 aren't doing it they put another 3 or 4 on. Not many sides have that luxury. Don't know how they've done it especially when looking at their squad they only have two loans as well, don't think I've ever seen a squad with so few. That being said Hoolahan and Mullins would walk into any team in this league, probably Ironside too, including Carlisle's. If Cambridge keep them fit they'll go up imo.

And let's not forget we have the best right back in the league. Boateng is also due to return from injury in the next few weeks.

The only player I'd take from Carlisle is this world class center half they have.

Nah the best RB is Carlisle’s youth team RB.

Despite how well we're doing at present I still can't start to think about promotion. My natural negativity won't allow it.

Tranmere most likely to come through and win it I reckon. The monied upstarts (FGR and Salford) will be heavily involved. Exeter, Newport, Carlisle, Cheltenham and Morecambe still in the mix. Mansfield will finish strongly, possibly Bradford too...

Play offs would still be a great achievement but would feel a real let down after a couple of spells top of the table.

Don't think Mullin would be anywhere near the Tranmere starting line up to be fair

Not sure you can compare us to Salford, we might be bankrolled beyond our natural means, our natural level is probably bottom half Conference these days but we're midtable in league 2 budget wise this year. Well below the budget cap according to Vince, especially now we've sold two of our best players and will probably lose a couple more in the summer. In the past few seasons we've decided to go down the sign mainly young players, develop them and sell them on route, with the odd older head to help them out, rather then splash out on big names at this level. Sensible approach imo, as given how even most teams are in this league all you need to compete is to be is consistently solid and well organised with one or two players capable of producing the odd bit of class. The so called big name signings don't often stand out all that much.

He’s having a freak season. Right place, right time for you, I reckon. He was the very definition of average when he played for us.

How did Carlisle, on a part-time basis form such a formidable team!?

We play Vaughan as the focal point of a front three and Mullin would not fit into that system. If it was a straight choice between Vaughan and Mullin, I would choose Vaughan every time.

All of that said, Mullin does have talent and it is not a complete surprise to see him do well in a front two, with another striker sharing the workload. Cambridge seem to have quality in the right areas and I can see them going up if they keep Mullin and Hoolihan fit.

Mullin and Ironside are having a season where both are above their natural level, be it the service for Hoolahan, luck or just the sum of the total being greater than the parts.

Pope has stats better than Messi at one point in 2012/13, finished on 33 goals despite an 8 week drought during the season!

Would Mullin work on a different team or system? Possibly not. Vaughan for example is naturally a lethal striker and has been for years and could stick him in any team and he’s banging in the goals.

Cambridge are doing well in a situation where a couple of top players and some good ones are probably over performing but clearly working to a system and colleagues that suit each other.

Carlisle is a different situation, I assume whilst they are plumbing during the day to top up their part time hours they are living the dream and really going all guns blazing to try and earn a deal with a fully professional club.

Paul Mullin runs his heart out. That is a very big part of his game. He was liked by most TRFC fans i know because he doesn't hide.

Don’t really think you can compare Mullin with Vaughan, they are different types of striker.

Sorry but I’d pick Matt Green over Mullin and Vaughan every day of the week.

Well I decided to see how you fared on ifollow tonight and what I saw was you get beat 4-1 and I don't believe we have to worry about you pulling away.

In fact, YOU WERE TERRIBLE.

So based on this one sole match I've seen you play I'm completely writing you off as promotion candidates and I can confirm that from what I've seen, Cambridge ARE CRAP.

We were fucking dreadful tonight but it’s another game chalked off. Back to winning ways Saturday with another game played.

I know you don’t like the fact I am writing you off because a few weeks away you thought you were promoted. We will finish above you, no doubt about it.

Well that was dire....two bad teams, when have i said that before.....morecambe will pick a odd win here and there and fade to finish mid table.
Again we huff and puff.....MJ Williams is a clone of Comley/ White does not know how to play a ball forward.
The one piece of quality and Doyle gets his 11th league goal of the season.
We are not going up and we are not going down......Get Maddison on

Did you not have any quality players to come off the bench?

Ha ha!
