Pre-Match View From Colchester

“Looking ahead what team would you put out on Tuesday night versus Sheffield United? “

“Swindon’s “

“Not many options for us”

“Bizarrely for someone who hates it, I would have no problem if we played a very tight, very solid 4-5-1 formation at Bramall Lane. Three central midfielders in a line together with the two wide just a little advanced of that…for that reason, I’d keep Watt in the side as he as Massey are vital to getting up to Porter to give him a hand playing on his own front. Szmodics to join in when he can”

“Does anyone get the feeling that Porter is the sort of striker who only scores spectacular goals?”

“ The whole team was crap on Saturday because Crewe effectively nullified us and we resorted long ball hoofs to Porter, who won nothing “

“we have young players all over the pitch and they are doing well in the most part, but while we have fox knitting together the midfield, and now porter providing experience with the attacking side of things, we have little experience at the back. clohessy isnt a natural defender”

“ It doesn’t help that Porter is isolated up front. I don’t think its lack of effort. “

“ Porter has done well upfront but has no support. “

“Since Chris Porter has come into the side in the last two games it sounds like the team has another dimension. “

“Great start from Porter”

 “With Porter’s physicality we looked a much more solid outfit and harder to beat “

“Nice to have a forward in Porter who can win flick-ons, but held the ball up well and brought other players in”

“Porter Could make a huge difference to our attacking play. Better for us than Sears in many respects. “

“A good player is Porter at this level, experienced and able to score different types of goals that will fit into our formation and “philosophy” rather well I think. “

“Chris Porter. Proper striker! “

“He does seem to have a reputation for being very hard working and always giving 100% on the pitch, which is exactly what we need in our current predicament. “

“i was just reading some Sheff Utd forums and nearly all of the commented on his great work rate and what i really liked was that someone described him as ‘having ince in his veins’. Could be out injured for ages, come back, get one chance and score. Composure in front of goal is one thing we have really been missig.”

“Very excited by Porter signing. Hopefully it might attract a few more to the WHCS”

“At last, Porter is someone who looks old enough to play mens football. He will feel like a grandad in that changing room! “

“Porter Seemed to score a lot of important goals for Sheff utd. I think any goal he scores for us will be vital. Never been the quickest, but certainly tormented us in the past.  Happy days”

“ Chris Porter is quite evidently good enough to score a wonder goal in consecutive weeks whilst on the SOLO ‘break’; so frankly we don’t have to over commit the midfield forward in order to score goals. Stopping goals is just as important as scoring them.  “
“I am hopeful that at Bramall Lane and Boundary Park I will witness a dogged performance that grinds out a vital four points from six. Then on our return to WHCS we similarly put nine or ten men behind the ball to grind out boring 0-0 draws against MK Dons and Bristol City; which is achievable; but not if we go gung-ho. So Tony, let’s please stick to WHAT has worked away from home not WATT hasn’t worked when at home.”

  “ The next four games look terribly tough.”

“If we go their defensive and for a point I think we might get slapped. They’ve been good at home this season and in this instance I would go at them, put them on the back foot early against a team their expected to beat. High pressure and high intense, winning the ball back early and high up the pitch. If we concede early then we can drop off…no harm done. We have to get points from these next four fixtures and would see this as a good opportunity. Perhaps their legs are tired from their cup exploits. “

“Oh dear didn’t realise its Sheffield United away on Tuesday. Hmm just what we need. At least not at fortress WHCS “
