Best of luck to them.
and am amazed so far. definitely the season's biggest surprise.
What do you make of Dean Gerken?
i don't feel 100% safe with him in goal, but i know he's a good keeper. just needs more experience i think...
have no complaints with that. Take away the home form and it would be a very different season, but a couple of points outside of the play off places? More power to them, I say
they've done brilliantly. If the (perhaps not so) unlikely was to happen and Colchester were to get promoted would they be allowed to play at Layer Road, or is it too small/dilapidated. I would love to see some of those stupid, preening millionaires having to play there.
would have to ground share with Ipswich, or something. It's not all seated at the Layerdrome
at Portman Road.
We'd be far too bitter for that. I think we'd rather refuse and then get beaten by em again for another season in the Championship
Layer Road is such a tiny ground that teams get intimidated by it. Having Iwelumo and Cureton helps a lot as well though.
how Iwelumo has scored so many goals this season. It's brilliant, don't get me wrong. Also, surely 15 goals in the Championships warrants a place in the Scotland squad?
warrants a place in the Scotland squad. I am constantly overlooked.
but that's probs just because i'm a bitter and twisted leeds fan...
To get a 10,000 seater stadium? I mean, surely that's going to need expanding pretty soon after it's built, especially if they keep up their current success..?
Colchester have been a nice pleasent surprise this season. It also shows that you don't need to spend loads of money to have a good team, team spirit and motivation are just as important.
As Colchester will be staying up it will be interesting to see how their second season will go, they may well lose a few more first team players and the element of surprise will be gone.
It's great as well that there's still a few 'proper' stadiums left in the country like Layer Road, although that will be gone in a few years, you can't beat a cup of bovril in hand standing on the terraces.
when you can have a wall to piss at? As provided to you the lucky fan at many stadiums up and down the country.
It's a different world to Arsenal and the Emirates (I support them, but have an active interest in Col U). I love the fact that you get groups of fans that all know each other, and there is a strange charm in occaisonally having your view obstructed by an inconveniently positioned beam
