Knocking Seven Balls Out Of City - Press Coverage!

Knocking Seven Balls Out Of City - Press Coverage!

Colchester United enjoyed a record 7-1 league victory against Norwich at the weekend. One well worth milking. So, Vital shows you what the local and national media made of it all with a selection of quotes.

"Colchester's chief threat was provided, somewhat ironically in the circumstances, by Kevin Lisbie, who signed for them a week ago on a season-long loan from Norwich's arch rivals Ipswich. Quite what they will have made of this extraordinary defeat in the pubs 45 miles down the A140, goodness only knows." Tony Rushmer, the Telegraph.

"What was being witnessed was perhaps the most humiliating single match in Norwich`s history," Peter Harris, Daily Mail.

"Having not played in English football's third tier for 50 years, Norwich might be forgiven for not knowing exactly what to expect from League One, but few expected them to have been caught as cold as this." -Guardian.

"The Norwich nightmare was a dream day for Colchester," The Sunday Times.

"Wow! Can someone pinch me please? I think that I've just spent the whole weekend asleep, enjoying a recurring dream - that Colchester United routed Norwich City 7-1 in their own backyard!" - Carl Marston, East Anglian Daily Times.

"The U's were in rampant form, scoring five times without reply in an incredible first half which delighted the travelling Colchester fans but exasperated the shell-shocked Canaries fans in equal measure" - Jonathan Waldron, Colchester Daily Gazette.
