I really can't see how they can escape relegation now. Will be sad to see as they normally bring a decent amount of fans to the WHCS and it will be one of our most local fixtures gone, although it won't make a difference if we get promoted. Big if that though. Just goes to show how quickly things can change in football. It wasn't that long ago that they were 2-0 up at Wembley in the League One Play Off final. It's pretty much been a disaster since Barry Hearn went. Careful what you wish for Cowling haters.
It's important for us to get back on track tomorrow especially after Tuesday's defeat and the game against Wycombe next week. Also a lot of teams around us in the table are playing each other which could mean three points tomorrow would strengthen our play off push.
There are 40 topics on the front page of this board, 20 of them are related to or started by one individual. This is far too many. There are around 10 that are directly related to the U's. This is not enough and it's time we changed that. Let's get the board back to how it used to be and hopefully some of our missing contributors will return.
Leading 3-2 in one of our many must win games with less than 15 minutes to go and he brings on Dunne. Surely at that stage experience was needed and isn't that why we signed Shorey in the first place? Just don't understand the thinking personally.
Tom, a friend of mine, had his second son Alfie in December of 2014 unfortunately Alfie was born with Norrie Disease, here’s a bit of Alfie’s story.
“Alfie was born on the 22nd of December 2014, we were absolutely over the moon with our new addition to the family, but within a few days we could tell that there was something seriously wrong with his eyes. Over the next few weeks we saw specialist after specialist until we were eventually given the devastating news that Alfie has Norrie disease and that there was nothing that could be done to help his vision, and that there was likely to be further complications down the line, such as hearing loss and developmental delays.”
On Saturday Tom is running from Colchester to Southend for the Southend United Colchester United match to raise more funds and every single pound of your kind donation will go to help Alfie to help his vision and will also spur Tom on.
Hardly makes for inspiring reading. He's picking virtually the same XI players as both Brown and Humes and the team is playing in a similar formation.
There are a number of players that have appeared in every game or a least most of them during this dreadful run in the league. Is it not time for them to make way? As something's obviously not working at the moment.
With our first proper match against a Premier League club at the WHCS now on the horizon it got me to wondering how many Championship teams have paid us a visit. There's been two this season, Reading and Charlton, any others over the years?
