Colchester United (A) Preview - Season 22/23, Episode 7

On this week's episode of The Brunton Bugle, the lads take a look back on an impressive opening day performance and look ahead to the first away trip of the season.

Lee and Mike review United's 1-0 win over Crawley, discussing impressive debuts from Back, Moxon and Barclay, Jordan Gibson's continued development as a number 10 and a baby seagull (seriously). We also introduce our new feature - 60 Second Reviews - where you send us your thoughts on the game and we play the audio clip out! Check out our Twitter feed for details on how to contribute.

That's followed by a look ahead to this weekend's long trip to Essex to face Colchester United this weekend - including a chat with James from the Views from the U's podcast about how his club have got on this summer.

There's also a news round-up (recorded before the signing of Jack Stretton) and the usual run-down on how Ex-Blues have got on recently.

Your host Lee Rooney is in Liverpool and is joined via the wonders of the internet by Mike Booth in Formby.
