Both you and Foresttownstag have said that now. We haven't even kicked a ball yet.
Last season was first time we'd played them for roughly 14 years in the league and was a mid-week game (we don't turn up to mid-week away games, i'm more concerned about the Barnet game than Saturday in all honesty).
Colchester haven't had a great start despite winning at the weekend. We haven't won away at Colchester since '95 but equally we haven't won at home against the spireites since '94 shall we roll over for that one too because of the past record?
This season is about putting the record (or a few records) straight if we are serious promotion contenders. At the end of the day records including poor ones are made to be broken, so lets go down their with a bit of confidence after Saturday and show the lads our full support in the hope they can bring home some more bags of coal!
It's nothing to do with the actual game, last seasons game we played very well and somehow lost 2-0, I'm looking forward to the game.
My comment about poor away day is the fact there isn't any pubs etc as the ground is in the middle of nowhere, the only place to grab a pre match drink is McDonald's or the concourse in the stand. It made me really appreciate our SP bar and shows how excellent it is. I was gobsmakxed that a purpose new build stadium hadn't come equipped with a "club bar"
Haha fair enough, apologies thought we were being written off before we even get there!
Yeah it's a bad one. Its an unfinished out of towner. Id advise arriving at 2.55 and leaving asap. Shame because Colchester as a town is historic and lovely in parts. The ground is a flipping wounder though.
