Poll - New Signings "Very Good"

Poll - New Signings

The latest Vital U`s poll suggests that the four January singings made by Colchester are "very good", according to 64% of the vote.

The club twice smashed their previous transfer record by bringing defenders Chris Coyne and Phil Ifil from Luton and Tottenham respectively; Coyne`s disclosed fee was £350,000.

Manager Geraint Williams also splashed a further £300,000 on the captures of Dean Hammond, a promising player from Brighton, and Scott Vernon.

Vernon, 24, played on loan during United`s promotion-winning season in 2005-6, where he scored a vital goal to keep the club in contention at the campaign`s climax.

Accordingly, 17% of the vote records that fans of the club are encouraged by the transfer activity, while 18% are either not impressed or disappointed with the results of the investment.

Tried to amend the new poll but it didn't work! You'll just have to choose something else!

Worth a go, but I think Yeates would waste chances!
