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

Reaction: Lambo Delight At 7-1 Victory

Paul Lambert told BBC Essex Radio that his side played some of "the best football" he has seen, having had a vast of experience in the game.

The Scott wanted Colchester to give a good opening-day account of themselves as a day-late 40th-Birthday present against City during the opening clash of the 2009-10 season.

The U`s have targeted a top-six finish and Lambert said: "It was the best I`ve seen in years, including when I played the game. I thought they were sensational."

He continued: "I didn`t think we were going to come here and just sit back because Norwich will still be one of the favourites, no doubt about it. I thought they [the team] were brilliant."

Lambert had full-time praise for returning loanee, Kevin Lisbie and his strike-partner Clive Platt, who both grabbed a double-strike and David Perkins, in particular, also finding the net as a second-half substitute. His assist was provided by Kem Izzet, celebrating his 300th League match for the U`s in midfield.

"Lisbie was a massive, massive signing for us. If Kevin was fully-fit, he`d have had a hat-trick," added Lambert.

He also reserved praise for the nigh-on 2,000 U`s fans who made the fairly short trip to Carrow Road. The game`s attendance was one of the biggest-ever since City`s stadium became an all-seater, in 1992.

"I`m sure the crowd, who were phenomenal again, will be there on Tuesday night [for the League Cup clash with Layton Orient] in their droves after that. Our fans are terrific and outsung 23,000 people, which is great."

The full interview will appear shortly, on the BBC Sport CU-FC homepage.
