On Sunday, Vital Colchester launched a week-long countdown of all things U`s. Today, we look at the club`s web presence through video collections.
5) Jamie Cureton's hat-trick against Southend, 2006/7.
Jamie Cureton scores his ninth professional hat-trick as Colchester did the double over bitter rivals Southend in the golden 2006/7 season.
Listen out of the commentator calling Cuereton`s career at United a "renascence as a top-class striker." The U`s scored first after just 37 seconds.
April 9, 2007: a very good Good Friday, indeed!
Watchable? 5/5 (Length: 54 seconds)
4) Colchester United's promotion, 2005/6.
A video reel of pictures and an overlay of commentary from adopted U`s fan, BBC Essex commentator Neil Kelly.
His emotions get cross however, as he is overcome in the movement as Colchester are confirmed promoted to their highest level ever in 2006.
Listen to hear him mistakenly mention his boyhood team Hartlepool United...!
Watchable? 3/5 (Length: One minute).
3) Rare Layer Road footage and pictures.
A lengthy tribute to long-gone Layer Road, but worth the watch if you have the time.
Although the background music, by modern chart band, the Editors, is slightly morbid, there`s a good mix of footage and stills of the old ground and her greatest memories.
Watchable? 3.5/5 (Length: Seven minutes and fifty-seven seconds).
Click here to see the video.
2) Sky Sports review of the golden Championship season, 2006/7.
What has become a classic review on Sky Sports of the club's Championship days - watch Chris Iwelumo teasing partner in crime Jamie Curton as he reveals the short strier's nickname is Frodo from Lord of The Rings.
Watchable? 4/5 (Length: Six minutes and ten seconds).
1) Colchester United 5 - Hull City 1, November 2006.
Who could forget this? Just watch the clip, and enjoy....
Watchable? 5/5 (Length: One minute and fifty five seconds).
