Cowling: 7-6 To The Mighty Colchester!

Robbie Cowling, owner and chairman of Colchester United, has promised U's fans his determination to take the club forward is stronger than ever.

The U's lost 5-0 at home to fierce rivals Norwich City on Saturday, in front of a sell-out crowd, a game which had received much hype; despite this Cowling thanked U's fans for their continued support. He also gave his reply to the Canaries travelling supporter's chants from the match.

A statement, from Cowling, on the club's official website read:

"I would like to say a big thank you to Colchester United fans for the fantastic support you have given me.

I hope I have demonstrated my passion for Colchester United and, although the outcome of Saturday's game was not what we had all hoped for, I was very proud of the way the Colchester United fans got behind their club.

Personally I use every set back in my life to motivate me to try harder and to do better. I have experienced much worse days than Saturday and used those exceptional lows to drive me on to many of the exceptional highs that I have also been fortunate enough to experience.

I promise you all that today I am more determined for Colchester United than ever before.

Because of the people that I mix with, I am used to people telling me exactly what they think of me, but Saturday was the first time that thousands said it together.

Well Col U fans were correct, there is only one Robbie Cowling. The Norwich fans were correct, he is a bit of a w****r at times and as for 'Cowling, Cowling what's the score?' It's 7 v 6 to the mighty Colchester.

So let's get right behind Aidy and the team, because there are still a lot games to play and I know how much they too appreciate your support.


What a statement, Robbie!

Norwich fans are only jealous of our chairman because delia smith wants to quit a sinking ship thats broke financially too. Our Robbie HAS shown his loyalty and for that i thank you sir.

Eh? The same Delia Smith who's been here for over ten years? The same Delia Smith who Norwich fans have turned on at least three times, but who hasn't budged? The same Delia Smith whose displays of embarassing passion that do nothing but inspire the opposition are hopefully over?
