Addicks in Town tonight 15:28 - Jul 23 with 548 viewsdurham_exile

Lee Bowyer brings his newly promoted Championship team to the JobServe this evening for the U's penultimate pre-season friendly.

After the mauling against the Poorman Road outfit JM will need to think carefully about his line up.

No harm in trying a 3,4,3 formation tonight.

Anyway Bowyer has made a couple of interesting signings, not least Macca Bonne (whatever your point of view for or against, I believe he will be a star for Charlton this season).

More interestingly is the signing of Chuks Aneke from the Franchise, who I have always liked. He of course had a shocker with the rest of his teammates when we defeated MK Dons towards the end of last season but like Bonne will be an important team player this season.

Charlton lost to Gillingham at the weekend, but they will be keen to secure a win against the U's tonight.

Just as Norwood and Johnson tormented us so could Bonne and Aneke (there is a possibility that Aneke could be rested) and our defence needs to stand strong but it is the forward line which was sadly lacking against ITFC.

So lets go for the following line up in a 3,4,3 formation:

Gerken

Eastman Sowunmi Prosser

Vincent-Young Lapslie Pell Stevenson

Brown Nouble Cowan-Hall

Subs:

Ross James Fernandes Chilvers Gambin Hasanally Norris

Currently basking in 30 degrees of heat, Colchester will still be about 24 degrees Celsius at kick off tonight so plenty of water breaks required.
It is also very warm in Durham and the sunshine is very welcome.

I note that the South Stand is closed tonight owing to lack of interest!!!!!!!

So probably 2,500 tonight after the euphoria of a 5,000 plus crowd on Friday.

Can we finish the home friendly with a much needed victory, I do hope so.

Enjoy the game.

Still time to sign a new striker before the season starts!!!!

Wonder whether Bonne scores tonight?

Yes for two reasons
First keen to show Colchester what they gave away and if he can score when playing for 5 minutes he will surely find the back of the net when playing at least 45 minutes.

What I would prefer to see of course is a Colchester victory with both Big Frank Nouble and Chuck Norris on the scoresheet.

Enjoy the game

Thank you as ever Durham - I await something positive from our lot, not been too pleased so far.
May we swap temperatures please, it is now 40 degrees and I have decided that I don't like it one bit. Neither does the cat.

Pinault incredible temperature and I understand due to get hotter with you.

A balmy 25 degrees in Durham and London due to achieve 35 degrees.

I know that Cefn Druids was only a friendly but a number of the new players did very well that day.
Friday night defence was shocking and we have missed Ryan Jackson, that's why I'm suggesting three at the back tonight to see how the midfield can perform.

But it is the forward line where we must be dominant. I fail to understand why JM is reluctant to splash some cash on a true striker not another attacking midfielder. There are strikers out there who can score 20+ goals per season.

0-0 at half-time, so if it is Bale he's lost his touch :-)

The triallist may well be Reggie Young who Barnsley were also interested in signing. A winger as opposed to a striker unfortunately.

Anyway second half coming up

Another winger? This is bordering on obsession...and misplaced obsession at that.

In fairness I can't confirm that it definitely is Young but he has been training with the team.

Wow, that was quite some strike from Norris. Hopefully that’ll give him the confidence to start the season well.

Did McGreal play him and Nouble up front as a two?

Triallist was Jack Senior left back. Released by Luton.

Yes a 3,5,2 formation to start.

Nouble and Norris

Problem is JM cannot yet be sure of his 3 August team.

We have an embarrassment of midfield riches, insufficient full back cover suggesting he may go 3,5,2 but at home that is too defensive.

3,4,3 would be better but does he play Norris and Nouble and then does Brown start or Cowan-Hall

Need to mull this one over.

I like Norris and believe if he man's up this season could score the elusive 20. As I stated they are looking at the full back situation.
