Keith very much split a fan base at carlisle, possibly had more fans that liked him then didn't in the end.

Just wondering how you are finding it under him?

Positives and negatives if you can.

He's about the best we can hope for these days after showing no ambition for over 20 years and sacking an average  3 managers a season.

Overall he's done a reasonable job so far, but to be honest I was much happier a few weeks ago than I am now. He's started to praise the players for playing well and losing, as Dean Austin sometimes did and his match-to-match tinkering is almost at JFH levels. I understood this at first but he's had more than enough time now to make up his mind on players and is making too many changes from one game to the next. With 1 win in 10 games I would prefer my manager to be going all out for a result rather than constantly experimenting by changing half the team (often leaving out in-form players while he's at it).

As above. Average for an average club that is stagnating.

done a decent job, given where we were when he came in.
constant tinkering with selections and formation can't really help anyone.
who he ships our and brings in this month will tell us quite a lot.
i would prefer to judge him in May 2020.

I'd have gone for Calderwood if he had been available a few days earlier. But then if you look at his new manager bounce at Cambridge I am glad we have Keith.

Keith needs to be given the summer to make his changes and judged 10-15 games in to next season. I hope he isn't tempted to make unnecessary signings in this window. No short term loans or contracts.

and..

Like the other managers before him, we experienced a new managers bounce but things soon returned back to normal. If the pattern continues, our 'reasonable performances combined with poor finishing/defensive errors' will soon turn to routine beatings. We shall see.

I like Kieth though. Its clear that the group of players we have 'lack something' and we have endless debates what that is. Some blame the keeper, some blame the captain(s), some blame our strikers. etc. Some blame an overall 'mentality problem'. Basically its unclear why we cant string together consistent performances given our wage bill, and the cv's of the players we have on the books.

Unless we get close to the trap door (9 points off of it currently) and we don't need yet another new manager bounce in the last few games to increase our chances of survival, he will get this window and the next and that is what I think we all want and hope for.

Good start, but a bit uninspiring of late. One win in ten is very poor form! But he doesn't have a cohesive squad.

I agree that the constant shuffling of the team is frustrating. Play to your strengths more than over worrying about those of your opponent - AKA Hasslebanking!!!

Agree that he has been hamstrung by having to choose from a squad that has been put togther by Uncle Tom Cobblers and all - and he needs to be given time.

Worry that with the way he chatters, players on the training ground may ask each other what he was on about?

Not your typical football manager. Seems more thoughtful than most - but still well qualified to talk b*ll*cks!

Unconvinced. Ask this again after the transfer window has closed for a better answer though.

He's got them more organised than we were but that's not saying much as we were odds on for a double relegation.
Let's see what funds he gets and who he brings in, we desperately need a keeper left back center mid and a winger.
Jury's out at the moment.

We have three keepers Cornell, Coddington and Goff (also a very imposing and promising young lad out on loan Bradley Lashley). No point getting another in now. Maybe in the summer.

Left back (wing back), our weakest point, often targeted by the opposition. Buchanan has actually looked reasonable going forward of late but gets done often with a lack of pace when defending. Bring back Bunney.

Centre mid. Mcwilliams, Foley, O'Tool (when fit) Turnbull (if needed) and Jay Williams and Matt Crooks. I think we have enough cover for the remainder of the season.

Winger. Yep, Get your boots on (but only if you're cheap)  Grin

Seriously you want Bunney back  Grin He can't defend to save his life.
Cornell needs some competition, decent loan keeper needed.
McWilliams isn't good enough IMO, OTool is past it we need a dynamic ball winning play maker.

Bunney can put in a good cross. We will have him on the wing and you at LB then!  Grin

The biggest responsibility of this lark is recruitment. Until your bloke has had a crack at that gig the rest is smoke and mirrors. Whilst one came good to a degree, Vv, Hilda and Bunney last year were a total disaster and were instrumental in getting Jimmy the sack. Had they turned up and set the world on fire like Wilders did things turn out very differently. Like it or not the next 3 weeks will go a long way to defining Curlio. If only we had someone with an eye for a player, where’s Melville when you need him?

Not a fan, hasn't a clue who to pick and where resulting in a team picked from a hat on matchdays likes a draw and a nonsensical post match interview. He plugged the hole in the leaking ship, but pretty sure another will appears soon
