Not one Colchester United player made it the League One team of the week, despite a club-record league victory at Norwich the weekend.
Don`t call me a taxi but you can call me biased if you like. It`s been done before now! Still, you`d think that some players in a side that`d just rolled over one of the favourites for promotion in 2009/10 might feature, wouldn`t you?
There`s a - cue shameless plug on behalf of the Official Site and all over-zealous Ipswich Town fans - DVD due out, and everything!
Now, some of the selections are easy to agree with - Jermaine Beckford scored two very classy gaols for Leeds United against Exeter last weekend and Gillingham forward Simon Jackson also looked very sharp, for example.
That no U`s man makes the League One select XI this week implies not that Colchester played as exceptionally as the scoreline suggests, but actually shows Norwich must have had a mare. It`s a fact that pride couldn`t possibly allow us to admit on these pages.
But the City-U`s derby game was an astonishing away win; an annihilation beyond all expectation, I hear you cry. I do sympathise...
What`s that? You`re a disgruntled Norwich City fan, fed up with reading about the weekend`s football. Ah, you belong of the Canary mafia and are waiting to bundle me into that clichéd taxi mentioned at the top of this article...
I`ll get my Blue and White striped coat!
So what do you think?
