Colchester United v Bolton Wanderers prediction logged

It’s only showing six or seven fixtures for me and today’s game isn’t on there. Anyone else having the same problem?

It’s just as ridiculous to say that this week as it was last week.
|WE DID NOT RELEASE MACAULEY BONNE!!!|
at 22:31 5 Feb 2020
Quite frankly I’m sick and tired of hearing about someone who was a bit player at best but people seem to have forgotten that we did not release him. We offered him contract and he chose not to sign it because we couldn’t guarantee him first team football so he left. Not because we didn’t want him but because he chose to leave. It’s worked out well for him but it’s taken time and who’s to say it wouldn’t have worked out even better had he stayed here but that we’ll never know.
I challenge anyone on here to come up with five players that we’ve released over the last 15 seasons that have gone on to better things. I’m struggling to come up with four! The vast majority of times the club gets it right with the players they choose to release and Bonne was one they wanted to keep but HE CHOSE TO LEAVE just like Kinsella, Lua Lua, Cureton, Iwelumo, Halford, Danns, Jackson, Moncur, Gilbey, Szmodics, Kent and Vincent Young.
|Well they messed that up didn’t they?|
at 20:33 27 Apr 2019
We were two defeats from the last 23 league games being the complete opposite of the first 23 in terms of wins, draws and defeats. Two heavy losses could’ve even seen the goal difference being equal and opposite. Useless bunch.
|Ten in a row?|
at 14:36 22 Apr 2019
We’re now up to nine consecutive matches where one team has failed to score. Will it be ten today? Wonder what the record is.
|Is there anyone in the squad...|
at 23:37 14 Dec 2018
...not signed or given a contract by McGreal? I’m thinking that there isn’t meaning that this is 100% his squad. Given how well the three additions have performed so far this season you would have to say it’s the best bit of player recruitment for quite some time.

Scored the winning goal again tonight. Maybe we should concentrate on him and other players still at the club rather than going on about a player that wasn’t prepared to stay and fight for his place in the team.
|The last time we...|
at 12:19 1 Oct 2018
...won four, drew four and lost two of our first 10 league matches we got relegated.
Conversely we're actually three points better off after 10 league matches than we were the season we got promoted and two points better off than we were after our first 10 matches in the Championship.
It's funny old game.
|Anyone else struggling to understand our goalkeeping situation?|
at 14:24 2 Aug 2018
When it became apparant that Walker wouldn't be here this season I was happy to go into the season with Barnes and Gilmartin as our two goalkeepers. I'm not convinced by Barnes yet but Gilmartin is more than capable enough to play at this level and we don't need to pay an extra goalkeeping coach so that's a wage saved. For some reason though we've signed two more goalkeepers, neither of which are our number one. In fact we paid money for one and he hasn't even got a squad number. Do we really need four goalkeepers? Is it a luxury that we can't afford?

I'm hearing a rumour that Guthrie has been released. Shame as he had talent but like so many in recent years his attitude is questionable at best so I'm not disappointed to see him go. I want players at the club that want to play for the club.
Does anyone else think that bringing him back into the side / squad was a factor in our drop in form this year?

It's a lot better than the last six seasons and interesting to see that it's not much different to 05-06 which was the promotion season and yet the impression this season is that we're playing boring football. I think some people have forgotten that Parkinson made us difficult to beat and score against first and foremost and the rest followed. Teams with poor defences don't generally win much. If Guthrie, Dickenson, Murray and Slater can come back into the side in the same form as last season then we've got plenty to be optimistic about.

|Time to take the positives|
at 13:40 8 May 2017
In what overall has been a good season for the U's I think now would be a good time to reflect on the last nine months and highlight anything positive relating to the club on or off the field.
Rules are only one positive per post and no consecutive posts. So control yourself Durham!

|Leyton Orient - Going down?|
at 10:32 15 Mar 2017
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.
|Big game tomorrow|
at 00:01 18 Feb 2017
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.
