Colchester United (H) Preview - Season 22/23, Episode 36

Well.... where on earth do you start with that one?! A Valentine's Day Massacre for the Blues, but the lads are still looking to remain positive on the pod!

In this episode of The Brunton Bugle, Lee and Mike perform an autopsy on United's 4-0 defeat to Mansfield, with plenty of discussion about why United looked so lacklustre, and whether it's time to freshen a line-up that has been so consistently picked over the last couple of months.

We also look ahead to the weekend clash with Colchester United, including a chat with Max from the Views On The U's podcast which features plenty of chat about their January transfer business and remarkable turnaround in form since the turn of the year.

Alongside this is a news update and the usual Ex-Blues Round-up.

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