No news is good news
at 12:04 17 Jun 2017

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.

World Cup 2022
at 21:09 12 Jun 2017

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)

Retrospective bans for diving

I confess I was somewhat ambivalent when I first heard about this but Sam Allardyce has called the proposals "utter rubbish" and put forward a very limp case for why it shouldn't happen. Thanks Sam...I'm now all for it!

Non league gems?
at 21:08 8 May 2017

Do they still exist? If so, are Col U still trying to unearth a few? Or do the resources ploughed into the academy mean that is now the only route for a young player to make it into the first XI?

Grandison leaves
at 22:03 29 Mar 2017

Didn't play a single second for the first XI. Not a very good signing which may explain why there is no mention of it on the OWS. Is the club scared to give fans information?

Has had an operation today according to his Twitbook page. Nothing at all on OWS, which is a bit strange. Anyone have any details?

Bad news for all concerned but let's hope both players return to full fitness as soon as possible.

Brill done for the season?
at 20:36 17 Feb 2017

Mention on the OMB that Brill's injury is serious and he is out for the rest of the season. Unbelievable if we have lost another player to injury, especially as he has yet to kick a ball for the club. Can anyone confirm if this is true?

An interesting move?

Apart from the money, which I assume is better than in the PL, why would someone at the top of their profession move to a relative footballing backwater such as Saudi Arabia?

Brill by nature?

Left Motherwell due to lack of game time. Will he oust Walker or is Big Sam off? Dillon Barnes to go on loan?

A new record?
at 22:36 26 Jan 2017

The match against Wycombe, rearranged for 7 February, has been postponed again due to their multiple cup commitments (what are they? - ed) This means it will be 5 weeks between home league fixtures. Has there ever been such an extended period previously, without cancellations due to adverse weather?

Clearance sale bargains?
at 14:32 20 Jan 2017

Colin is clearing out the U23 squad at Cardiff and we have now signed Eli Phipps and Tommie O'Sullivan, striker and midfielder respectively. Both under contract until summer 2018 and we have paid fees.

Anyone know anything about either?

George recalled from Braintree and straight into the squad for tonight's game.

With Garven also travelling McGreal is giving himself the personnel to shake things up or at least try something a bit different.

Cheltenham tomorrow
at 23:24 21 Nov 2016

The groundsman at Cheltenham said earlier today that the rain was coming down quicker than the pump could handle so there must be some doubt whether the game will be played. In view of our current form would we benefit from a postponement?

At least Walker gets it
at 19:43 14 Nov 2016

Sam Walker quoted in the press today:

"That was rubbish really"

"We have big issues now"

"Something has got to change, and very quickly"

"It's not been right for two months now"

Agree 100%.
