Club sellout for crunch City game: Are YOU ready...?
Colchester United chairman and owner Robbie Cowling has been vindicated by his recent decision to limit Norwich City`s ticket allocation for the return game this month at Weston Homes.
As of this morning there were officially around just twenty tickets left for the crunch game, set against an appetising background of local rivalry, a currently close league position and of course the small matter of Paul Lambert`s return following the season`s switch and that 7-1 match.
Cowling has said today thanked fans for backing his judgment by supporting the club`s cause as the history books prepare to record a biggest-ever crowd at the U`s relatively new stadium on the 16th.
The comments add to the earlier statement of intent; Cowling has already said he has "never wanted to win a game of football so badly" as United`s next home tie.
Even after the game, dealings between the East Anglian clubs will not cease for the season, with a Football League disciplinary committee due to meet and dole out City`s punishment, finical or otherwise, for inducing former boss Lambert to break his Colchester contract as manager.
