Not exactly the signing I was hoping for.....a Plymouth reject by looks of it. Surely we have youngsters already with the club. Still can't get my head round why James has not be recalled to have a run in the side.
Has made a good start at Ebbsfleet so he may yet make it as a league Manager. Rather doubted it after being at Stevenage as Assistant and then seemingly went to ever smaller clubs. Such a cultured player it would be good to see him succeed at a higher level.
Whilst sad for the fans of Bury, I am disgusted they were allowed to gain promotion since the club have now told the players they are free to leave without any fee, etc so long as they give two weeks notice as they have not been paid since March, well before season end. Evidently something like £16m is owed including a chunk to the HMRC.
We all know how we feel over this season missing out when we should have not but apare a thought how the fans of Ajax & Barca must feel this week. All credit to Liverpool & Spurs but at that level they should not have been able to make the comeback they both did. At least we now have something to look forward to without feeling 'if only it should be us'.
My first game of the season. Colchester are a different team with Prosser fit, Pell in midfield and Nouble real class. Sammy took his goal well and it seemed to me Norriss's injury effected his old team mates more on the restart but great work by Nouble. When Swindon pressed much higher up the pitch in the first part of the sound half it was good, in my opinion to see us use longer balls to nullify. My son who has played football at a fairly high level and is a keen follower of Liverpool came with me and commented it was a most enjoyable game to watch. Overall I thought the U's did well.
Seems a trial is taking place over next couple of games to have a Supporters Bar. Be interesting to hear from anybody on here what it is like after the first game. Understand first couple of games only cash and limited range of beer but, if it is supported aim is to have a card machine plus a greater range of drinks.
A legend. How many players start with a hundred in there first test against India and end with a hundred in there final in innings? Essex will benefit hugely over the next three years so hopefully we don't get relegated this year. England will be a lot poorer for not having Cook open.
