Alternate U's team for Saturday
at 17:04 25 Aug 2017

1. gerry_us...faced Ray Crawford in testimonial match. Still got the bruises.
2. Leadbelly..the Fisher -
3 Thrillseeker...and Fowler of our time.
4. Mr Happy. Never a dull moment in our defence.
5. Noah 4x4. Natural pivotal player.
6. Wessex Exile. Uncompromising and perfect foil for Noah.
7. PWK. Who else on the wing but Peter Wright's Knees.
8. Burnsie Espana. Continental flair.
9. MFB. Mick, the highest Usual scorer of all time. What better centre forward.
10. Pinoit Noir. A bit of French flair up front.
11. Durham Exile....surely will be present at a U's win eventually.
Sub 12. Daniel ..who in the past has been around #12 in the Usual league.

I think we could do a job against Forest Green. Hopefully the "proper" footballers will perform tomorrow and save us from ourselves.

ManU and City donation
at 16:04 27 May 2017

I read with interest that the club's had donated £1m between them to the victims fund. I thought that was a nice gesture until reading today that City will pay £42m for one player. When further looking at the assets of both clubs, half a million now looks miserly in the extreme. Comparing their assets to the general public at large I estimate that would be equivalent to you and I donating less that £0.1p each of our "wealth". Come on ManU and City, step up to the plate and make a further substantial donation to your city folk. And yes, I have.

Thoughts on yesterday
at 17:32 30 Apr 2017

...from my sun lounger.
No surprise about the "abandonment" as many had predicted it. I had suggested 3 points and +10 goals..worth a try. However I believe an abandonment results in 3 points and +3goals. If we knew that why did McGreal not know it as in his negotiations with the FA and Orient boss could he not have negotiated 1-4 to give us the +3 goals instead of what was a farcical finish in the end.
IF we miss out on play-off by the margin of 1 goal we are going to look pretty silly and no amount of appeals the the FA will be any good.
Let's hope for the boss's sanity it doesn't come to that.
All on Saturday now

McGreal Wary Of Rovers:
at 19:25 13 Apr 2017

Sorry, a bit of a yawning entry to this thread. I have read the same comment on the official board so many times this season. Is he over complicating the game by spending too much time worrying about the opposition then on how we should play. I remembered the same headline when we played Notts. County away but unfortunately we had no idea how to counter their style of play...ergo why worry about the opposition? I wonder if our opposition worry about us? Probably not especially when we visit them. Let's us hope for a positive approach to ALL remaining games irrespective of the opposition. Six point weekend? I'll go on holiday rather happy.

Poor display for the travelling 400
at 18:45 2 Apr 2017

An inept display, especially from me who couldn’t find the restaurant for a meet-up with Durham. Hope you got home OK Durham. Never seen you so despondent; me neither come to think of it.
However, an even more inept display from the U’s who totally underestimated a rejuvenated Notts. County side. How we didn’t have a plan to negate two very professional players in Ameobi and Stead I fail to understand. The fact that big George got himself booked inside 15 minutes certainly meant that he was unable to support Eastman as he would have liked at the back. In truth, after a long and stern talking to from the referee, George, within a couple of minutes went through with a tackle that I was convinced would result in a red card; fortunately, only yellow. After that Ameobi and Stead won everything up front and probably 3-1 loss rather flattered the U’s. One bright spot was Porter’s goal that if scored in the Premier would probably be candidate for goal of the season. From where we were stationed it looked top left corner from when it left his boot.
Did management recognise that only a win would be any good to us at this late stage of the campaign? At no stage did we show the intensity or guile required to break down what was a very nervous looking Notts. County defence and an equally fallible looking goalie. All we persisted with was the ball bypassing the mid field for Porter to knock down….to who?
Even when County had settled for 2-1 and timewasting very early in the second half it took until 70 minutes to bring on Bonne and Fosu. Unfortunately, they never had the opportunity to get into the match and we conceded again and it could have been more if truth were told.
This must be one of the worst displays I have seen from a U’s side for many a year and was not what 400+ travelling supporters expected or deserved. Roll on next season when we will hopefully keep some of our more important players fit for a whole season, unfortunately in Div.2

Do U's pay sick pay?
at 17:18 19 Feb 2017

The unavailable list is getting pretty ridiculous now. More of concerns is that some of the recent arrivals have hardly set foot on the field of play. Are we suffering more injuries off the pitch rather than on it? Does anyone have the definitive list of sickies or alternatively those players that are actually available for selection, especially with the amount of fixtures in the next few weeks.

Well done Lincoln

So proud of Lincoln today, just 20 miles up the road. What struck me most however about the game is what a seriously nasty bloke Joey Barton is!

Arsene Wenger to U's rumour.
at 18:37 17 Feb 2017

OK, it's me starting the rumour but I cannot understand why they would be trying to hound him out from the Gunners. Don't they appreciate what he has achieved over more than twenty years in the post? If as he says he will be managing next season "somewhere", Colchester is not such a big commute. I'm not saying our current manager is not do a reasonable job but what we need is a "name" with a proven track record to take us to another level.
