Read on club website the passing of Arthur Turner. A impressive record of 100 goals in 164 appearances for the club .
But also served in the RAF as an air-gunner in the Second World War, Arthur was on board a Wellington Bomber plane that was shot down in the Bay of Biscay in 1943. The sole survivor of the crash, he was rescued at sea.
Seems like a story of a comic book hero, but so real to some . RIP .

Great emphases has been made lately on the fact that the club only have the twelfth biggest wages budget in the division ( although ex- academy players are not included ).
Having just played and been defeated by a club which had two recent big budget loan signings, does money talk or has the club now lost it's mojo in playing above its weight /BMI ?

U's yet again failed to dispatch a relegation threatened side, to keep there own, going nowhere fast promotion hopes alive. Despite the noises from Head Coach John McG, nothing much changes and the reaction from the previous match at Crawley was to go 3-1 down after taking the lead.
The second half onslaught resulted in a penalty, but little in quality in the places that mattered.
On paper the squad is good enough, but the management seem incapable of inspiring those he regularly choses.

At this present time pre table Christmas, the U's are in third position, leaders of the pack chasing front runners Lincoln and MK . Looking over there shoulder a queue longer than Ipswich / Harwich Rd roundabout upgrade has amassed .
So are we well placed to pounce or is the excellent home record only keeping us at lofty heights ?
No cup completions to distract can we maintain the push or will we get swallowed up .
Like all teams we look better going forward than defending, which is unconvincing especially while dropping deep with aerial threats .
We need to show that we are not a one man outfit while Norris is unavailable, and the management can cover all situations required.
Last gasp points gathering in games could make a huge say in the final league positions, something we need to improve upon .

Seems that the Chairman Ben Purkiss has suggested that EO Gordon Taylor should step down. Comments have been made regards Taylor's salary, pay gap between lower league players and several ex players have voiced his support.

Snippets from the Prog .
Chairman happy with McG and does not expect that role to become available any SEASON soon .
More academy players going out on loan and expect those who develop to first team squad to have played around fifty senior competitive games . Therefore more players will be playing at the next level into the places that become available .

LOFT JOINS SHREWS
Midfielder Doug Loft signs a one-year contract with Shrewsbury Town after a successful trial period with the club.
He joins the club after leaving Colchester at the end of last season.

Phil Parkinson also took a look at Sam Walker, the former Chelsea goalkeeper who left Colchester United this summer after failing to agree a new contract.
Wanderers need senior goalkeeping back-up after releasing Mark Howard this summer and are not understood to be following initial interest in ex-West Brom man Boaz Myhill, who trained with the club for a couple of days last week.
The 6ft 6ins Walker, who was named Colchester's Players’ Player of the Year at their end of season awards night, missed just two games for the U’s in their last two years in League Two and helped them keep 13 clean sheets in the 2017-18 campaign.

Vincent-Young is on the radar of their East Anglian neighbours Ipswich Town.
The 22-year-old defender is out of contract at the JobServe Community Stadium this summer and is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal.
Because of his age, Colchester would be due compensation should Vincent-Young, as expected, leave the club.

Nice touch that the FA will print all 137 goal scorers names from this seasons competition on the cup final ball . Any former U's players included ?
Also due to other ceremonies elsewhere, Butch Wilkins widow will present the trophy to the winning captain .
