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.
at 10:09 21 Jul 2018
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 .

Hasbro, the makers of Subbuteo have launched a all female set, with the figures in the colours of recent Women's FA Cup final teams . At present it not available to buy, but can be won on social media channels .
So, have a great idea either, U's team you cannot get out the box or another available with Routemaster bus .
Any others ?

: “Football is sometimes about self-analysing, about going home, looking in the mirror and asking yourself: ‘Have I done enough for this football club?’ Clearly the answer is no, and I’m included in that.
“You can blame all the people you want to blame, you can blame off the pitch, but when it comes down to it, the players on the pitch have not been good enough this season. Simple as that.”
A quote from only this week, ( no occasion with the U's ) , any ideas ?

JcM predicts things will happen in the summer !
So let's go ...
JcM to become No2 to Paul Cook at Poorman Rd .
Nobody to find Ronaldo sticker in the Pannini World Cup Album .

Here is the run-down of the top six Colchester United goalkeepers, in terms of total league appearances:
1 Mike Walker 451, 2 Percy Ames 397, 3 Sam Walker 200 , 4 Carl Emberson 192, 5 Alec Chamberlain 188, 6 George Wright 151.
Big Sam has now reached 200 league appearances and third on the list of appearances for the U's, goalkeepers, but his contract is up and and the on demand keeper is unlikely to stay.
|Courtney Senior signs |
at 18:06 18 Apr 2018
Colchester United are delighted to confirm that flying winger Courtney Senior has signed a new contract with the club.
The 20-year-old has made a big impression since making his first team debut in August, and has scored three goals so far for John McGreal's side.
The tricky wide man has now signed a new two year deal to extend his stay with the club.
Got plenty of natural ability, but now has two more years to nurture it into something more sudstainable. More improvement in reading situations and toughen up physically.
