Following the popularity of Ex-U`s XI features last week, Vital Colchester has had a go at a worst U`s eleven of the last decade. Agree or disagree?
The main factors for selection are the player`s poor reputation and bad performances for the club, and ideal would potentially have been taken any period in U`s history stretching back to formation in 1937.
See if you agree or disagree with Vital Colchester United`s selections. If so, tell us why at the end of this article.
Feel free to comment or make other suggestions if you feel any player has been overlooked - that`s all part of the fun.
A contributory resource for this feature, since Vital U`s has so few members to contribute, was a BBC recent 606 discussion on the topic, probably inspired by our series of articles. Thanks should also go to site members ooohhJohnnieJackson and StevieG Col U for thier suggestions on the team.
Vital U`s has had a go at researching the ex-U`s used for the benefit of the feature.
A possible Colchester United Select team made up of bad ex-CUFC players from about the last ten years:
Ron Green U`s: Appearances, 4 (1992-1993)
Fabrice Richard (U`s: Appearances, 24 1999 - 2000)
Sagi Burton (U`s: Appearances, 9 1999)
Adam Virgo (U`s Appearances, 36 Goals: 1)
Danny Granville (U`s Appearances, 20) 2007 -2008)
Stéphane Pounewatchy (U`s Appearances, 15 Goals: 1 1999)
Jose Fumaca Antunes (U`s Appearances, 1 1999)
Adam Tanner (U`s Appearances, 4, 2000 - 2001)
Jamie Moralee (U`s Appearances, 20 Goals 2 1999-2000)
Teddy Sheingham (U`s Appearances 16, Goals 4 2007-2008
Brian Launders - Striker (U`s Appearances 8, Goals 0 1999)
