Wynter Joins Maidstone
at 16:40 4 Aug 2017

Confirmed on the club's site. https://www.cu-fc.com/news/2017/august/wynter-moves-on/

Does and doesn't suprise me. Like Bonne, he had limited chances, but not a move i'd've expected on the eve on the season.

Average squad age
at 13:12 20 Feb 2017

Came across this interesting set of stats and graphics on player ages across the leagues. Unsuprisingly we have the youngest in the league.

Leeds 1971
at 15:57 14 Feb 2017

Yesterday was 46 years since our famous giant killing. Does the result still have the same sparkle these days, what with topflight clubs not taking the competition seriously these days and Leeds not being the club they once were?

Wessiehomes/Barside Pete
at 00:08 14 Feb 2017

I have reluctantly pressed the big red BAN button. I say reluctantly as the board has always been good at moderating itself and I had hoped Pete would have got the message from other users and reined in his posts.

Away from the board I had warned him and naively trusted him when he said he was going to remove himself from the board and/or only post on topic.

I'm not sure if this will be a permanent or temporary ban. I may leave this for you to decide by way of a poll. For now though, I apologise that I left it so long to put a stop to his nonsense.

ColU and the UK
at 09:51 26 Jun 2016

I've spotted a trend, let's start with the late 80s...

Thatcher's reign eventually leads to ColU falling out of the football league.

Thatcher goes, ColU win promotion back to the football league.

The Tories reign ends, Labour take power, ColU get promoted to Division 2.

Great times ahead, the UK gets stronger, ColU get promoted to the Championship.

2008, the bubble bursts! Relegation for ColU, recession for the UK.

The Tories get elected in, public spending cut, ColU spending cut.

2016, ColU relegated, the UK to exit the EU.

No one knows what the hell is ahead, but it doesn't look good

Enough is enough. I have taken the decision to give Pete a hiatus from the site and cleaned up some of his drivel and insults of the past few days.

Enjoy a nonsense free zone til the end of the month, then I'll open a vote to see it we'll welcome him back.

So, Humes has come out and blamed the fans for the defeat claiming we wanted the players to fail. Genius.

Must say I take offence at the comment "a Colchester United star in the Championship." He was never a star, he was a load of shite then too.

The new section of Northern Approach Road has finally opened which means you can now drive direct to the stadium from the station without having to go round the houses.

Double negatives etc.
at 15:38 23 Dec 2014

A guy at work is rather hot on his grammar and it got me thinking about how poorly constructed some football chants are. The first one that springs to mind is: "You've never won f*ck all". Does that mean you've won loads?

Any others?

Gosport Vs U's Live Stream
at 21:35 8 Nov 2014

The game is being broadcast live elsewhere in the world and it looks like Wiziwig.tv is going to have link to live video streams.

http://www.wiziwig.tv/broadcast.php?matchid=290666&part=sports

I occasionally use this site to watch games and my tip to anyone who hasn't used it before is don't click the adverts, especially any that say you need to download something.

How many games in your lifetime?
at 19:40 3 Jul 2014

An entirely random thought... how many games (ColU or otherwise) do you think you've been to? I'm in my early thirties and started to watch the U's when I was a school kid. In the last 20 years I've barely missed a home league game and I've been to around 80 away venues. A quick 'back of the fag packet' calculation and I reckon I'm between 500-600.
