Up until today, we merely took for granted that nobody out there in the great wide yonder had, or had even thought about having a tattoo of Keith Curle.

Alas,it turns out that we are but conceited fools.

Indeed, to celebrate "the mainman" turning 53 on November 14th, Carlisle fan Aidan delivered the perfect tribute an indellible portrait of the reigning League Two Manager of the Month about his bodily person.

Having been hit by devastating floods brought on by Storm Desmond over the course of the past week or so, Carlisle is now just beginning to piece itself back together in a town-wide clean-up operation.

When the town flooded, Carlisle United saw their Brunton Park home ground turned into a giant open-air lido for the second time in a month as the entire stadium was submerged once again.

While League Two side Carlisle United were beating Welling 5-0 away in the FA Cup second round, their home ground of Brunton Park was suffering a hammering of its own. Caught up in the rather vicious Storm Desmond, the 18,2000 capacity stadium found itself submerged as flooding devastated the entire area.

Thanks to a prolonged bout of torrential rain fall, Carlisle United's pitch was in one hell of a state earlier this morning.

In fact, Brunton Park was left looking more like a local open-air swimming pool. Fans of water-logged irony maybe interested to learn that the stand you can see in the photo above is officially known as the Waterworks End.

It was not much longer ago than forty years that what we now know as the county of Cumbria (which, in the interests of historical exactitude, we should point out didn't come into existence until 1974) had three Football League clubs. Barrow, however, lost their place in 1972 and Workington followed them five years later, leaving Carlisle United as the sole Football League club for England's most northerly country and even they lost their place for a season after relegation in 2004.

League Cup Round 3 - 26th September 2012

The Carlisle forums are full of excitement ahead of our clash this evening, not because Spurs are coming to town, like other lower league clubs we've played. But because this is a chance for the 17,000 capacity stadium, that averages only 5,000 for a league game to be full of local fans that might witness something special and stick around once Spurs have gone.

It's been a sorry start to the season for Carlisle United both on the pitch and in the stands. After three years of steady progress up the League One table, the club are struggling to dust themselves off from the tumble that left them lodged in a disappointing seventeenth last term.

In League One this weekend a goalkeeping stalwart kicked a ball directly to an opponent – an error which resulted in a goal, faced the first public criticism of his long standing spell between the sticks and was dispatched to the bench. I am, of course, talking about Carlisle United's Adam Collin, whose unbroken run in the Cumbrians goal ended at 149 appearances in this week's JPT clash with Preston North End.
