Rumour Mill-The Road from Carlisle to Preston?

Rumour Mill-The Road from Carlisle to Preston?

Preston North End are poised to sign Burnley defender Clarke Carlisle according to Sky Sports.

Phil Brown is anxious to find a replacement for Sean St Ledger who has now departed Deepdale for Leicester City.

Whether of course our articulate, PFA chairman amd last season's vice-captain would be willing to play in League 1 remains to be seen but I do wish we could have some more positive news in terms of signings rather than speculation we could be depleting our squad even more.

Hang on a minute we could get rid of Carlisle free up a big wage and bring in an up an coming England under 21 player, oops already missed the boat on that didn't we....

Iwelumo (£15k/week allegedly) and Cort! Wow what an exciting squad we have, no need to tweak even!

What's that third button tmp, after the FB and Twitter?
08/07/2011 18:58:00
Google by all accounts, tried it,not a clue what to do!! lol

Just tried it myself, me neither?? I would love to see a breakdown of who is on what, would you say McCann is now on 15k?

I got the impression £15k/week was too much for BFC's salary cap now but no idea what it is (low probably) nor who else is on what. Heard the Iwelumo figure from one of the Director's mouths spouting off on the train coming back from Leeds!!

Carlisle was poor last season and at times cost us goals. Andre Bikey is a very solid central defender and Duff is good two. If we sell Carlisle and bring in a new centre back I would be very happy.

Carlisle is OK - but not irreplaceable IMO. Good games - Bad games. Wish him well if he was to leave, although still think he can do a job at championship level.
