The Opposition View - Colchester United

The Opposition View - Colchester United


Following yesterday's Carling Cup victory over Colchester United, here are some views on the game from the U's manager John Ward and a few of their fans.

"It's always hard to take when you go out on penalties," said Ward, "But you know the rules before you start and that's fine and you know that there might be a shoot-out at the end of it."

"I feel for my team, I think they've done everything possible to win the game. For 30 minutes going up to half-time, I thought our football was absolutely excellent."

"The lads were organised and we knew what we were doing. Even at 2-0 down, they proved to me, themselves and the supporters that they can keep going and that's really important."

"I'm very happy with what I'm seeing from my team at the moment."


The Col U fans felt they created enough chances to win the game and are optimistic about gaining revenge on Saturday.

The following extracts are taken from cufc-chat and the Essex County Standard.

It was an entertaining game of football with two cracking goals.'

Excellent game. Col U played some great football and at times carved open the Wycombe defence with our quick passing.'

Despite the fact we were awful in the first 15 minutes, we still had the confidence and calmness to pass it around and totally controlled the tempo.'

We effectively lost to a Wycombe reserve side!'

Not quite sure how we lost that one, if we had scored 8 it wouldn't have been an unfair reflection of the game. We and the ref gifted them a two goal lead. Wycombe made changes but it wasn't a reserve side. The bulk of their team was the first 11 and subs from Saturday so Waddock juggled his squad a bit. And make no bones about it, despite going out we were by far the better team and I fully expect 3 points on Saturday.'

Great effort from the team tonight, but you can't afford to miss six golden opportunities (no exaggeration). Roll on Saturday when we will absolutely trounce them, I'm sure of it.'

I was convinced I heard the whistle blow just before they scored their first? If we'd have been a bit more clinical it would have been game over easily in 90 minutes.'

The U's were brilliant going forward. The attacking play is a joy to behold at times and we could have had more than the three that were scored. Defensively though, we look a mess.'

Football is first and foremost entertainment, and I for one was thoroughly entertained by tonight's game, albeit that we lost.'
