Carlisle United: Blueseason 2009-10

Some might tell you a mid-table finish in football represents 'mediocrity'. Those people probably don't know much about Carlisle United. This account of a season in the life of Cumbria's only football league club tells of their first mid-table finish in over two decades. It also recounts stunning victories over automatically promoted clubs, dire outings at relegation threatened outposts, the nail-biting agonies that saw a Wembley trip achieved after two penalty shootouts, and the injury crisis that made team selection a permanent managerial headache. Where Carlisle United is concerned the unexpected is normal. The annual Blueseason collection includes the games, the goals and the gossip with additional features in this edition including the Evening News and Star's all time top 100 Carlisle United legends and a tribute to BBC Radio Cumbria's Derek Lacey. A souvenir no true Blue will want to be without.
