The two Browns to be the architects of a Super U's victory! 11:15 - Feb 27 with 1592 viewsdurham_exile

A new start with the arrival of Wayne Brown, albeit on a temporary basis and with baggage that unfortunately has been raked over the coals in the past two days which has deflected attention from the playing squad.

Let us set that aside and concentrate on the issue, that of survival. Now all the modelling of what might be, and form tables is meaningless, it is solely down to what Colchester achieves over the final 17 games. Realistically we need 20 more points to survive for another season. What a sad indictment on what has been the most wretched of seasons.

Forget about the humiliation against Marine and the performance at Exeter, the game that really hurt was the embarrassment against Southend, when we were simply appalling.

Table:
20 Stevenage 31 34 -7
21 COL U 29 33 -8
22 Southend 30 27 -25
23 Barrow 28 26 -6
24 Grimsby 28 24 -25

Grim reading, but what do they say, the table never lies.

Anyway, it starts today a 17-game season and Wayne Brown as Caretaker Head Coach takes his charges to the New Lawn at 1730hrs to do battle against FGR who surprisingly lost to someone in midweek.

Forget about their green credentials, the coffee shirts, the recycled water, and the vegan burgers, it is all about three points for the Super U’s at the 14th time of asking.

Now Wayne Brown is starting with a clean slate and looking to bring some players back into the squad that SB had either fallen out with or ignored.

Gerken
George
Coulter

Welch-Hayes
Doherty
Smith
Sowunmi
Eastman
Clampin
Tchamadeu
Sayer

Wiredu
Lapslie
Senior
Pell
Harriott
Cowan-Hall
Chilvers
Poku
Stevenson
Marshall Miranda
Cracknell

Oteh
Brown
Folivi
Nouble
Bohui
Tovide

Wayne Brown is already familiar with the squad and will have his own ideas to reinvigorate the team.

Well let us see:

Gerken

Welch-Hayes Eastman Smith Doherty

Stevenson Lapslie Wiredu

Harriott Brown Nouble

Subs:

George Sowunmi Tchamadeu Cowan-Hall Poku Oteh Folivi

Regarding fitness the following are probably doubtful; Pell and Clampin

Paris Cowan-Hall has not been given a chance, yes injury has been his nemesis but that is equally true of Harry Pell.

What Brown will be looking for is a degree of continuity, we have played different formations, different teams and SB had his favourites much to my chagrin.

The press unhelpfully are already talking about a permanent replacement but let us give Brown the opportunity to initially get that first victory and then to build over the remaining games to get those 20 points.

Weather in Nailsworth will be 8 degrees at kick-off, dry after some late afternoon sunshine.

A day to get behind the team, a day to forget about the recent troubles and a day to be optimistic and look to the future.

14th time of asking can we do it yes, we can. Perhaps 2-1. A rare double in a season of disappointment.

Enjoy the game.

Do not forget KO at 1730hrs

For me Chilvers has probably been one of our best and most consistent performers to date this season and you haven’t even got him on the bench? Madness!

Agree with that RSC. He is one of the few players this season who has tried to make something happen. If fit and not in need of a rest then starts for me every time.

Please; do not judge on the basis of one game. Win or lose hopefully we will play with a different style and mindset...but it's only a week so stay calm and confident guys, even if the result is not the one we think we may deserve. Brown's army will see us through.

BBC suggest 4 - 2 - 3 - 1 with Tchamadeu in the front three!

Well, it has certainly got the opposition guessing!

Not too much damage so far. Now up to us then.
Would have hoped to have seen Brown start with two up front. All to play for.

Bright start young Tchamadeu in the right wing back position looks inspired.

Certainly matching FGR

Tchamadeu putting himself about a bit.

Definitely plenty of effort this week.
Running harrying and chasing down loose ball

If Brown wasn't sure about how big a job he has in front of him, he does now.

Get Harriott and Poku off the pitch. Too lightweight! No movement! No defensive contribution. Repeatedly losing ball. This is diabolical.

Brown more clueless than Ball

Plenty to do

Red card was correct.

We need solidarity here.

This is Browns first game.

Let's see what happens

Surely there can be NO reason now why we should not go to all out attack against 10 men. Nothing to lose.

Harriott believes his own hype - so frustrating

Tchamadeu - lost

Doherty - Crawley must be wetting themselves a team took him off their books, I have not seen him perform at an acceptable level in any match.

Nouble - no service

Gerken - looks like he has lost all confidence.

The only player to com out with a little credit that half is Chilvers

I am struggling to see what our formation is.

This is so painful to watch.

The grass is not always greener - I see Bramall has already been dropped by Lincoln and was only a sub today
