Same again
at 18:35 19 May 2017

Season ticket prices to remain the same for next season 2017-8 . A good move on the club / chairman .
Just a few more
at 17:11 18 May 2017

JM states U's would have made the play- off's with a few more games !! Well perhaps if did not play way or go on a winless run or play any of the top three !
Who likes ABBA ?
at 07:51 4 May 2017

Mamma Mia , proposes new changes to penalty shot outs to be trail in. U17, Euro Championships.
At present Team A and Team B take them alternatively - ABAB , but now to try Team A takes the first then Team B takes 2, followed Team A again - ABBA .
The reasoning behind the change is that at present Team B always have the pressure in catch up .

Slightly different from previously has no presentation but just Q & A 's .
Chairman and Manager seem to be happy with position of club on, and off field .
Want to move Florence Park (20 acres ) to 70 acre site at Kelvedon
Bonn - still under contract - tried to play him above U23 level , hence loan outs .
Garvan received severance payment, unable to discuss personal details due to terms of contract .
Interested in signing Fosu, if released by Reading .
Groundsman congratulated on condition of pitch .
Asked why no wifi except in West stand - only interested if perceived profit .
All on line transactions cheaper to club than any other .
Ref Orient situation - U's would be totally in the s""t if chairman was run over by bus , stable and players always received wages.
Will investigate better range female jewellery in shop.
I did not feature in the top three in quiz !!

Hit for six .

Harsh lesson learnt for U's U16 academy friendly against Premier League Manchester City, at the WHCS, with a 6-0 defeat.
Early goal from a corner not cleared set the tone and a free kick scored before half time saw the vistors have a 2-0 half time lead .
City turned on the style in the second half, penalty converted soon after followed by glorious 35 yard lob by the City skipper, who then placed through ball to City centre forward to score .
It's a massive learning experience for the U's scholars, which shows the bench mark against top opposition.
Onwards and upwards .

Congratulations to Brightligsea Regent on promotion to Ryman Premier League . Fantastic achievement with three games still to go and scoring over hundred goals .
It's fine
at 07:00 28 Mar 2017

See the Man City have been fined 35k for player behavior . Time for points reductions has monetary deduction serves no purpose given the totals issued do not even cover a PL players weekly wages .
In the Navy .
at 18:54 21 Mar 2017

Another campaign, another kit issued . Notice the latest England away kit is now all navy blue .
Perhaps they have missed a more apt colour, more in tune with the last fifty years of constant under achievement .
How about chocolate brown .
From Champs to Chumps

Leicester City - the chumps of football . Relegation lets hope so .
Game Pie
at 16:17 21 Feb 2017

FA and Gambling Commission investigating yesterday's evening's cup tie between Surton and Aresenal after odds were placed at 8-1 on Sutton reserve keeper being seen eating a pie during the game . He duly obliged after all subs were used .
Hope Ginsters pay the fine !
Clearing the decks.
at 18:35 30 Jan 2017

Another U23 has been released by the club, the much acclaimed Academy also has a harsh side with now released Regis now joining recently released O,Donoghue, Curtis.
Must be quite unnerving for some youngsters who have been under the umbrella of the professional club, though some have previously been released from larger clubs .
The options are quite limited to still play has a player although most top clubs at Conferance level are now full time .
One presumes most have football coaching qualifications to rely on release to help with future careers .
The harsh reality of the other side of football .

Possible date for diary - League Two play off final at Wembley ( day after FA Cup final ) .
Goal scoring records.
at 20:39 21 Jan 2017

Bobby Charlton's just gone , cannot believe U's goal scoring record ever now being beaten . The Rooster got very close, but surely no player would be at the club over a long enough period of time for this record now to be beaten , and any player with a goal scoring prowess would certainly be sold long before .

Jesus scores, but is denied by the offside flag .......

at 16:54 18 Jan 2017

Please note .
Due to Sky sports televising a final game in L2 season , all the home games (v Yeovil at WHCS ) will kick off simultaneously at 5-30 .
Graham Taylor
at 06:36 13 Jan 2017

Former England manager Graham Taylor has passed away, the U's had several encounters with on the up Watford at the time .
Alas will be unkindly remember by a portrait made by national newspaper of him . Also was part of a documentary which shows the pressure about the England managers job where during a clash with Holland when he told linesman to tell the ref he had just lost him his job after Ronald Koeman scored from a free kick but should have be sent off earlier .
A real football man .

Not intentionally
at 11:01 13 Dec 2016

Shock horror - Man City player and Muslim Yaya Toure, gets a drink drive ban for not intentionally drinking alcohol ! Wonder what he is like when his club don't get him a birthday cake !
Wonder if anyone has not intentionally done something they regret later ?
Whites v Black
at 06:35 29 Nov 2016

While watching the whites v blacks programme by Adrain Child's on Sunday 27th , two questions came to mind .
Who was the second black to play for the U's after the brilliant Trevor Lee, and who was the first to play at Layer Rd for the opposition ?
