Learning Their Fate

Learning Their Fate

The call from the terraces from some sections has been for Graham Kavanagh to be among the casualties at Carlisle this summer.

Kavanagh wasn't able to steer the club clear of relegation, following his arrival (initially as caretaker boss) as Greg Abbott's replacement last September, but is looking as though he'll be the boss charged with bringing the club back into league one.

Those that aren't going to be as fortunate as him will find out their fate this week with talks taking place with the players today but what he does want is players that will 'give everything to wear the shirt' remaining.

Carlisle's boss told the official website: 'We'll be talking to the players on Tuesday to let them know where we want to go and I will start to look at reshaping the squad from there.

'I need players who won't look for excuses and who will give everything to wear the shirt. My job now is to regroup and get a squad which will challenge at the right end of the table.'

Looking at why and how the club ended up relegated from league one isn't something that he wants to dwell on too much as 'that's been and gone' he is now interested on getting the squad sorted out so directions in the right way can be made.

A large number of players are expected to depart Brunton Park this summer though, mostly due to the club deciding this is the way forward.

I wouldn't have thought too many will be expecting 'many surprises' with who goes will they?

This site is looking for an editor (at least contributor), so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports them we would love to share it with the masses!
