Good luck tonight. I will be listening in the radio. A win would be great but a drawn would be a decent point.

His all round play is awesome and he is getting closer. Don't be so negative. Hanson went 15 or 16 without scoring last season and look how it ended. Soon as he gets his first the rest will come. Very good player

unbelievable. City win and all some want to do is search out something negative to say. That's three wins in five matches for a manager who doesn't understand football and can't sign players; a team with no ability to play football or score etc etc.

Well done City. Let's back it up on Saturday and start planning for next season.

Hanson for England....

wonderful result and did we actually play good football? can someone give a proper report instead of all the negative nonsense. I am sure that Mac will come good and then the floodgates will open. Come on City.

Fantastic win tonight. Jut what we needed.

But ..... please ..... McLean is the worst signing in a long time. Overpaid and long long past it. Yes, he may grab the odd goalless but so he should!!!! Jeez. 10 games in zero goals for our highly paid lump of wood

I listened to the match on the radio and it sounded like a different team. They were dominant from start to finish and played an excellent passing game which benefitted many players, in particular McLean. Seems PP got his tactics spot on for this game. McLean did everything but score. Dolan played well and provided the corner for Hans goal. Drury had an excellent game and perfectly delivered the balance to the defence that we have been missing since merediths injury. Hopefully an unchanged team on saturday!

thanks for that report Stevie-C , maybe we went better in mid-field with Jones missing, hope for the same team on Sat, could be 2 in a row, win's that is.

A good win. I think a mid table finish for a newly promoted side, who lost their leading scorer midway through, would represent a pretty respectable season.

Yes another 3 points would be nice, obviously. As for the rest of your comment .... people used to have a go at Hanson when he wasn't scoring but his play opened up the game for others, now he's scoring as well. Not sure how you can have a go at McLean's performance when by your own admission you weren't there tonight?

Any one who actually made the superb effort of going care to say how he played? I would be surprised if any say he's utter garbage and a waste of money. He'll get a bag full in the future.

Replacing a goal scorer like Nakhi with the opposite is not good enough, I know we got the 3 pts last night which is great but mclean was bought to put the ball in the back of the net, simple

al&co 7:45am Wed 12 Mar 14

I did go to the game and Mclean played well but should have scored. He was a handful for their defence and almost got through a couple of times with some good running. He just needs to smarten up in front of goal. The entire team were outstanding - the attitude was spot on right from the start and at the end of the day it was a comfortable win.
Colchester were very poor but we made it happen and punished them - much quicker to the ball and we could very easily have won by a bigger margin.
Let's hope we can take this forward into the next game.

The only thing that is simple is you.

Well done, you have a new scapegoat in the team. Someone that can be the focus of your ill-educated bile, even if you only judge based on what you "see" on the Pulse....

Wow, so when he was at Peterborough you managed to get to all of their games so that you can make an informed judgement on how he managed to score so many.

Please explain where this "entitlement" to criticise any professional comes from. Are you a God? Does Aaron McClean not have any "entitlement" to be treated with respect given the obvious effort that he has put in so far. Three wins in Five matches....and you still find something to moan about.
