U's Granville Talks A Good Game

Colchester United`s new left back Danny Granville has said that he joined the club from Championship rivals Crystal Palace because it is "going places."

The 32-year-old, who was out of contract but still a firm favourite with Palace, has a reputation for striking a good free kick and is also left-footed.

He played in the Eagles XI that lost 3-1 to Colchester in January on their own turf and, although last season his starts were limited by injury, has the pedigree to excel in Essex given that his CV of past employees features Leeds and Chelsea.

Like big-name addition Teddy Sheingham, Granville said he was attracted by the U`s attacking style of play.

"I know a lot of the players having played against them, they did really well last year and it's a club that is going places," he said on the club`s official website.

"They play good, attractive football - and I've had experience of that first-hand."

Granville added: "I don't know what people will expect next season but we need to have a realistic view on things, it's about stabilising and pushing the club in the right direction."

Season may be more difficult than last but after speaking to people at the club namely the manager and owner I found them aware and READY for the up and coming season.

Good, I'm glad that he's up for it; I am, and the club seem to have, at last, done really well in the market. I couldn't be happier. I just think, although Brown is saying what he's said, I think he should go. I know it's in the interest of the press to get soundbites from players, but the way Curo spoke out ruined his fan raport. Brown better watch out for that, too!

Somone on here said that he once scored a free-kick against Man U? But I hope he's not bad!

He's had a lot of experience tho. Chelsea was a little while back. CP obviously liked him for a good bit.
