U's Voted Most Stressful Club No 32

A recent survey carried out by the Littlewoods Pools puts Colchester United as the 32nd most stressful club to support of all the 92 teams in the Premiership and Football League.

The criteria for the club-by-club analysis has been made by consulting football fans, who were asked to decide what factors caused them experience nervousness on the terraces.

These were:

The 'yo-yo effect', ie regular movement between divisions/leagues due to promotions and relegations

Narrowly missing out on promotion and/or relegation

Failing to win at home

Losing matches from a winning position

Losing in play-offs, particularly finals

Being involved in penalty shoot-outs, and cup ties which go into extra-time

Financial problems at the club, leading to uncertainty over its future and a detrimental effect on team performances

Changes in club ownership

Frequent changes in manager
