New Signings Poll: And Cowling Agrees!

New Signings Poll: And Cowling Agrees!

Our latest poll shows you are impressed with the summer acquisitions made by Colchester, and it would appear U`s Chairman, Robbie Cowling, agrees with you.

Although, as earlier reported on Vital Colchester,Cowling expects further exits this summer, he thinks there are plenty enough reasons to be cheerful.

"We have a good chance of being successful this season. The squad is stronger, both at the front and back," he told the EADT.

The poll, suggested by site member, Stevie_G_Col U asked you what your reaction to the U`s summer additions and they reflect a fairly positive view. Nearly half of all those voting said they were suitably happy with the club`s captures this time around.

It also seems boss Paul Lambert is also happy to stick with his current crop of players, after admitting on Friday before the season`s curtain-raiser that any possibility of more signings looked "remote."

  • What the poll asked - What do you think of the U`s transfer dealings so far?

  • How you voted - Couldn't be happier, 13%, Okay, quite impressed, 46%, Some good, some bad, 22% and finally Really disappointed, 19%.

    Before we move on what are your thoughts on what the last poll concluded? You know what to do, thoughts below please guys...

    Unhappy Keeper Back With Norwich

    Kean had come in on a 28-day from Norwich but his time at the Weston Homes Community Stadium is over with Keen confirming he was 'unhappy with a couple of things.'

    Panicking? Not Yet!

    Before the Southend game Keen insisted he wasn't panicking, despite the U's being seven-points adrift of safety. Three-goals in the final 10-minutes lead to another defeat of course.
