You don’t want to be me !!!!

If watching Colchester hasn’t been bad enough over the last 3 months and the appointment of another manager with no league experience.
Spare a thought my other team Maritimo currently sit slap bang bottom of the Portuguese Liga , other than an amazing victory in Porto it’s been like watching Colchester in Portuguese!!!
Like Mr Cowling the president sacked the manger and today the new manager unveiled a Julio Velázquez
Having googled him he has been a manager for 20 years and managed 20 clubs WTF
It’s enough to drive one to drink !!!!!!
Non league and segunda liga for me next year
Ball gone
at 22:31 23 Feb 2021

Issued 10.25
Colchester United can confirm that Steve Ball has left his role as U's Head Coach.

Owner and Chairman Robbie Cowling said: "Following the game tonight and a discussion I had with Steve, it was decided that the best way forward was for him to leave his position as Head Coach."

"Steve has been with the club in different capacities for a long time and I would like it placed on record our thanks to him for his hard work and dedication."

"The club will make no further comment at this time."
And you thought watching Col Utd was stressful
at 17:43 28 Jan 2021

As you know, and by my account picture I also follow Maritimo from Madeira in the Portuguese Liga
Last night 1/4 final Portuguese cup v Estoril from division below.
Having been taken to extra time by a forth tier team two rounds ago upset always on the card
But having beaten Sporting last round !!!
1-0 up at 90 mins 7 min added time concede a penalty in the 10th yes 10th minute of extra time !!
Then lost 1-3 in extra time
I think I’ll start watching netball !!
Jevani Brown
at 12:01 19 Dec 2020

Nice 2 page write up about Jevani in the Sun this morning.
Although as usual factually wrong.
Apparently he signed for us in the Summer after having been loaned to FCR by Cambridge.
No mention of Spurs Pananka penalty lol
Is the Spurs game on I follow (n/t)

About to depart Guernsey for Clacton to bury my bestie , spent many many hours together at Layer Road and beyond .
Also many beers sunk at British Grennie and Bricklayers.
He was 63 he had issues in his rear end he did nothing for three years. Went to GP a couple months ago , saw him 6/2 he had full diagnosis 8/2 dead 10 days later.
Gentlemen, please please check places you maybe embarrassed checking if in doubt see your doctor , don’t ignore it. If caught early 90% curable , in Guernsey bowel cancer 3rd most frequent cancer.

So how many people tried it out.
I'm watching my second game , quite impressed , compared with £40 a year just to listen thought £110 not a bad deal.
Only issue would appear to be a few second delay on sound so you hear the groans of another wasted change after the event. But overall quite happy , and £110 cheaper than one flight from Guernsey
Shock news received in Gsy
at 19:11 4 Jul 2017

I hear news that Fred and Hazel (Host and Hostess) at the Bricklayers are off at the end of month. Sad news always a very agreeable pint.
My Layer Road
at 18:29 7 Jan 2017

You will be aware of the fantastic book outlining the history of Layer Road written and compiled by Matt Hudson and Jim French.
When the book was first released I was bought a copy by my daughter , what a brilliant read.
However since then my sister has also bought it as a birthday present and for Christmas this year guess what my son bought me , yes copy number 3
I have had them on E Bay but no takers
I would love to let someone who loves Col U get a bargain
The book retails at £25/26 but happy to let my two spare copies go at £18 including post costs a saving of a tenner.
Any interest please inbox me
PS please don't share this post on official forum my sisters husband is on there and I haven't had the heart to tell any of them I already had the book
at 13:44 9 Sep 2016

Can someone who is going to the game on Saturday do me a favour.
Mrs A is getting jumpy as only 107 sleeps till Santa arrives !!
I like watches, I know the club shop has a watch , however no image on the website.
I have put it up on the OMB and Matt promised to speak to the shop but nothing.
I have called and e mailed shop but never a had a call back or reply.
So if someone could pop in shop take a snap and post it on here I would be every so grateful.
Cheers Guernsey

In the Sun (so it must be true) Luke refusing to sign his new contract, due to still being 3rd in pecking order at Everton. Don't think he'd drop down to the third (or 4th) tier permanently, but happy to see him back till end of season when he becomes free agent

The Guernsey FC bubble seems to have well and truly burst, 3 points off the drop zone , 10 defeats and worst defensive record in Ryman South.
Ross Allen not played much , were they really a one man team !!!
Last night set new record 8-0 defeat
Guernsey 14/15
at 16:55 13 Sep 2014

Slow start for the green lions
Ross Allen the prolific scorer declined to take part in pre season so stuttered start
Lost in FA Cup Qualifier against Worthing
in the last week 2 games 2 wins
the last being a 8-1 victory over Three Bridges(Allen 3)

Sorry for lack of updates
I'm stupid

My wife dragged me into this century and bought an I Phone 4S
Is it possible to listen to U's Player on it

Garry Monk
at 15:13 20 Feb 2014

So the Swansea Manager has likened playing Napoli in the Europa league to playing Colchester in the paint pot trophy.
Have we ever played them in the trophy and if so did we win ????
Bristol Away

Just bought ticket for Bristol away
Who else going and where would one head to for pre match ale ???
Guernsey FC 2013/2014
at 14:35 10 Aug 2013

New thread for this season.
Guernsey FC start new season in the Ryman South with a trip to Herne Bay.
There had been issues regarding entry into FA Vase/Cup due to FA insisting Guernsey share the gate receipts even though they have to pay for away team to travel here and stay the night. Seemed a bit unfair since Gsy will have gates of 800/1000 where as i'm sure if they play away it maybe one man and his dog in the early rounds. But an appeal to local businesses managed to secure funding so entered into both.
Guernsey need to win 6 matches to get to the first round proper and play Col Utd.
This summer having not played for 8 years have been playing 20/20 cricket and several of my team mates are GFC players so are very aware of the importance of getting to the first round to keep my dream of seeing the U's over here.

Fixtures in case any local games to any of you
