Magnificent U's Crush Norwich

Colchester United started their season with a fabulous 7-1 victory away to Norwich City.

First-half braces from strike pairing Kevin Lisbie and Clive Platt, a sublime David Fox free-kick gave the U's a 5-0 half-time lead. And substitutes David Perkins and Scott Vernon added insult-to-injury after Cody McDonald had pulled a goal back for the hosts.

The results sends Paul Lambert's men straight to the top of League One.

There goalies seems *****!!! lol Would we have scored that many more with Yeates?? I don't really think so - we played as a team, something Yeates restricts IMO.

Restricted, Steve. He's gone now, so past tense! This looks to be the start of a bright season, couldn't be happier if I tried! [Edited by MattUs]

Well what a result - well done - certainly saved us from being the L1 headlines after suffering a 0-5 defeat at Gillingham.
