CUFC legend: Kavanagh's dismissal 'right and inevitable'

Following the dismissal of Graham Kavanagh from Carlisle United, speculation has begun about who will be next to manage the team.

The bookies seem to be making Barrow manager and former Carlisle player Darren Edmondson the favourite at 3-1. Captain and joint-temporary boss, Paul Thirlwell has odds of 6-1 and at 8-1 is former Blues manager, now Derby County assistant, Paul Simpson. A whole host of other names are rated at around 10-1.
