The Brunton Bugle - A Carlisle United Podcast

Blackpool (H) Preview - Season 23/24, Episode 41

Season 4, Ep. 41

United's slow-lingering death in League One is over, as defeat at Northampton finally confirms what we've all known for a while - it's back to League Two next season.


In this week's episode of The Brunton Bugle, Lee and Mike review the 2-0 loss at the Cobblers as relegation is confirmed for the Blues - with the game itself being pretty dire, it's more of an initial reflection on what has gone wrong this season (which we'll get more in-depth on in a later episode).


That's followed by a look back on the midweek win at Cheltenham and some of the positives to come out of that (along with thoughts on what United can get out of the remaining fixtures).


We then look ahead to the penultimate home game of the season this weekend against Blackpool - including a chat with Nick from the excellent Seasiders Podcast about how their campaign has gone.


As usual, the episode is wrapped up with the ex-Blues update.


Your host Lee Rooney is in Liverpool and is joined via the wonders of the internet by Mike Booth in Formby.
