Meridian Pull Challenge
by wessex_exile at 21:02 23 Jun 2017

Dear U'suals

Over the years I have been humbled by the incredible generosity shown by Col U fans towards so many fantastic causes, and not least my personal pleas for sponsorship donations on behalf of (amongst others) Cancer Research, the British Heart Foundation, Oxfam and the Gurkha Welfare Trust.

Next Wednesday (28th June), a team of six colleagues are entering the Meridian Pull, an 8.5 mile row on the River Thames from Battersea, past the Houses of Parliament, through the centre of London, under Tower Bridge and finishing at Greenwich. I'm providing much-needed support, and we are raising funds for the AHOY Centre (who organise the event, and where the race ends). The AHOY Centre run courses and training programmes to help disadvantaged children, young vulnerable people and those with disabilities gain qualifications and essential life skills needed for employment - a cause that many of you may know is very important on a personal level.

The AHOY Centre may not be a big name charity, but I was there with our team yesterday evening for their final training session, and I could see first-hand just what a fantastic job they are doing. I could also see just how much difference even small change will make to the incredible work they do.

There's a link below for donations, and thanks for anything you can spare - you are all beautiful people!

No news is good news

Or is it?

Little or no activity during the transfer window shouldn't be a big surprise to Us fans but this year feels very quiet indeed. Two players released, one gone on a free transfer, no deals done with those offered new contracts and no new signings.

Is any of this a cause for concern or do fans have faith that the club has it all under control? McGreal claimed in the media recently that Colchester Utd is a club for which players are keen to sign. He may be right but there is no obvious evidence to support his comments at the moment.

Musings on the 2013/14 Season (Part 2) - The Watergate Scandal
by Mehandi7893 at 11:27:50

When we got into the ground one of the unsurpassed away outrages would happen. As I don't put stock in paying over expanded costs for containers of water, I generally request a half quart of good old tapalina. It's free and doesn't taste any extraordinary, so why not? Notwithstanding, on this event I was to be thwarted. I strolled up to the bar and approached the spotty youthful young person for a half quart of their finest faucet water. Right away stun and repulsiveness spread over the substance of the troubled spotty partner. I had made the youthful fella go into liquefy around requesting something that was not on the menu. When his legs had quit wobbling like jam he strolled over to his supervisor...

It appeared in a matter of moments at all that we achieved the devastate avenues of Rotherham. We'd landed in great time to such an extent that the Vicar figured out how to locate a free parking space appropriate alongside a bookies! What fortunes this was; not exclusively might we be able to stop the auto for nothing additionally get our rewards when leaving Rotherham.

In view of the action take by a number of Qatar's near neighbours is it now time time for FIFA to concede that this is, and never was, a fit and proper venue for the the World Cup?

(Boris Johnson has come out in support of Qatar which rather persuades me they are firmly in the wrong)

Players that impressed .
by bwildered at 17:46 8 Jun 2017

List some players who always impressed when you saw them play, but no U's players or internationals ( unless played lower leagues ).

Steven Fletcher - Bournemouth centre forward always scored against the U's .

Ray Graydon - played against U's during Conferance years, although then a senior pro, looked a class player who had played a higher level throughout his career .

Carlton Palmer - player/ manager of Stockport when they played first game of season against U's .
Lead by example, read the game and organised his team , only beaten by Pinault strike from outside the area .

ManU and City donation
by gerry_us at 16:04 27 May 2017

I read with interest that the club's had donated £1m between them to the victims fund. I thought that was a nice gesture until reading today that City will pay £42m for one player. When further looking at the assets of both clubs, half a million now looks miserly in the extreme. Comparing their assets to the general public at large I estimate that would be equivalent to you and I donating less that £0.1p each of our "wealth". Come on ManU and City, step up to the plate and make a further substantial donation to your city folk. And yes, I have.
