Lamacq`s Most Memorable - What Are Yours?

BBC Radio DJ, Steve Lamacq gave U`s fans an insight to how deep his love for the club goes in a recent list of his best games. But what are yours?

Football fans have a love-affair with lists, tallies and charts - the top ten, that famous five, those most hilarious haircuts or some horrendous hash-ups.

Former U`s stopper, Aidan Davison, even notoriously cakewalked his way into one on ITV. They show a clip of his own-goal howler after the 2005 F.A. Cup loss to Premiership Blackburn, on Football Funnies. Davison was very diplomatic about it all and promised to buy Rovers` groundsman a new pitch-roller so that he could flatten the pitch-divot he was blaming for the error!

Vital Colchester also ran a series of countdowns in the summer - including the U`s top-five homegrown talents and the lowdown of the club`s most fierce rivals.

Now, following Steve Lamacq`s recent list of his top-10 games, we want to know yours. The BBC 6 music man picks from as far back as 1983 until 2008, selecting between that time the more recent 1-0 win over Ipswich in 2006 and a very famous odd-goal Wembley play-off victory over Torquay in 1998.

Although for some reason the site entry puts a few years on the day`s hero, David Gregory, by saying that the game took place in 1983. It didn`t.

Coincidently, Lamacq calls that match was "one of the worst games" he has ever seen.

Lamacq has been stridently supporting the U`s since his college days, according to the account he gives here in the men`s magazine, Shortlist, describing an all-time top-10.

He describes one game against Wimbledon in the forgettable competition, the Associate Members Cup. It`s 1984 and United win 2-1.

"I went to college in Harlow, and no one else supported Colchester. It was a Tuesday night, I went alone, and we beat them. I was so excited that I literally sang out loud to myself in the car all the way home; pure jubilance all the way down the A120, it was a very lonely business."

Poor, poor man!
