'If It's Football, It's Vital'

If These Don`t Get You Excited About August....

New signings galore, evidence of some familiar faces and a bright training kit as the U's squad prepare for next season. Vital U's understands that these pictures are from July, 1, 2009.

Now into Day Three of a week-long training camp held at a similar base to the one where Argentina trained for the 2006 World Cup in Germany, the squad certainly appears to have been shedding some sweat.

Yesterday was the squad`s first full day of training, after arrival at the weekend.







L-R: Paul Reid, Mark Cousins, Lee Beevers, Ashley Vincent & Alan Maybury in qhat the club says is all-new 2009/10 training gear... while apparently playing musical statues!

More of the range here @ cufcretail.com




Eleven players, including John White and Jamie Guy, do auditions to see who has the best tan now that the boys are all back from their holidays!


Vital U`s would like to thank Colchester United Football Club for their kind permission to publish these pictures.... roll on next season!

What do you think of the new training kit and the pictures?

I may be wrong but think in the top picture I think it is Ashley Vincent rather than Simon Hackney fourth one along.
StevieG Col U
I think you might be right, because Hackers did have long hair after the Tiptree game! [Edited by MattUs]
Matt_Us
Yep, well not long but some hair!
StevieG Col U
.... haha, longer hair, then... would have thought he'd want it hacked off in the heat!
Matt_Us
Lol. Thought Hackney looks well funny with hair. Totally different,
up_the_u's_aaron
Pretty amusing! You sort of would want to go ask him about the wig... At least, as has been pointed out, it shows White and Guy went, obvious in my book! Wouldn't want to leave them at home in case they become suddendly fantasic players... if Guy started scoring right now, for example, he'd probably get a few games come August!
Matt_Us
are you sure these pics are from germany and not from when we first started training on 1st july
crokeyboy
That's what I thought crokeyboy, they seem to be wearing a blue training top in Germany unlike the yellow one as well.
StevieG Col U
Well, the club did tell me that they were from Germany!! But... using that logic - the new training gear is blue - these must not be from Germany after all...! How sad :(
Matt_Us
Yep, seems like there not, if you see the photo of the squad in Germany on the OWS, there wearing blue and it looks different.
StevieG Col U
isn't that the 08/09 training kit (the blue one) they were also wearing it at tiptree
crokeyboy
I actaully think they ARE from Germany, because that's what I was told... but I've changed the wording of the article. The Official Website doesn't seem to be selling this yellow training kit anymore! [Edited by MattUs]
Matt_Us
its stil online for me and whot told you they were from germany
crokeyboy
Vital U's wouldn't have been able to publish them without the permission... I'll have to check it with CU-FC...
Matt_Us
Ok... these are from Five Lakes, apparently! Oh, sorry! I had the wrong infomation... New picures up soon!!
