They all played and/or worked for Colchester United, and had brothers who played and/or worked for Colchester United.

As far as England are concerned, absolutely. But, there have been some scintillating matches, and Belgium v Romania that's just finished has been one of them.

Yes, but not quite the answer I was looking for.

Okay, a nice easy start to the weekend, what do Danny Cowley, Marc Tierney, Bobby Hunt, Tony English, Alan Buck and KK Opara all have in common?

He was well cast for the film. Stallone is only 5'7" (8" depending what you read), Cooper was only 5cm taller, but you're right, a very good goalkeeper.

Correct - Paul Cooper was the curve ball, most don't know he was Sly's 'body double' for some of the goal-keeping scenes.

Okay, this one is probably an easy one, and shamelessly nicked from a fellow U's fan's trivia questions.

Who appeared in goal when Bobby Moore scored his last televised goal. To keep things interesting, you need all three answers.

That'll be Poxford then, or one half of Thames Valley Royals if Bouncing Bob had his way.

MK Dongs don't count - they should have started in non-league, but thanks to the @rseholes at the FA, as you say, magically didn't.

I'd take Alastair Smith in a blink if he was available/ affordable.

Wow - without taking anything away from Germany, as international performances go that was exceptionally poor from Scotland.

I know it's never reciprocated, but I almost always have to root for the Home Nations in international competitions, plus of course the sweaties are up against the hermans, so Och Aye The Noo, or whatever it is they say north of the Wall.

Not that I'm a Ron spokesperson, but I don't think this one is down to him. According to today's article on the Beeb website, seems this one is down to the council, who are dragging their feet over transferring planning permission. The takeover consortium, who have already exchanged contracts with Ron, want to renovate Roots Hall (you can't polish a turd chaps) and move the housing redevelopment of the old ground out to occupy the proposed new site of Fossetts Farm, but it's the council digging their heels in this time.

Likewise, and from an apparently reliable source on Twitter. I would have guessed about those values even without the rumour mill to be honest.

To me it kind of confirms what we already knew - we had a squad or at least players that should have been competing for promotion, we could see it, and others (eg Stockport) could see it. Hence the fire sale right now - I don’t think it’s not buying into the Cowley’s vision, just not wanting to risk it going wrong again. Plus, money talks…

Looks like someone at Col U has woken up and smelt the coffee - seems a solution is being sorted - good news if so.

Good move for Jayden, with a three year contract and an option on a fourth. Probably tells us how much value they place on him, and how much they probably paid as a result. It’s frustrating that last season’s champions, who’ll probably do well this season too, could clearly see the quality in our squad, yet there we were trying to avoid relegation.

That is an atrocious decision - sometimes I despair at Colchester United's ability to score massive own goals just when the feelgood factor is returning. They need to fix this pronto, and not in a "we've listened to the fans" way, but in an open honest "sorry, we f'cked that up, it won't happen again" way.
