Interesting game at Gigg Lane tomorrow at Bury take on Col U

Bury fans were feeling very pessimistic heading into their game with Sheff U, but a win has surely given them hope that they won't get dragged into a relegation battle. Still, if they lose this one, then I'd imagine those negatives thoughts will come back and rightly so I suppose.

As for Col U, they are drinking at the last chance saloon now. They couldn't beat Chesterfield on Tuesday and they were down to 10 men for 70 minutes. Their away record is also terrible, the worst in the league. You can never rule out a shock 1-0 away win, but they really don't look good enough at the moment, especially defensively.

Hard to see past a tight, scrappy 1-0 home win here.

Form:
Bury: LWDLLW
Col U: LDLLLD

Is it 17 Colchester games since their last win. I am hoping Bury get that monkey off their back and Colchester get that win, otherwise you can guarantee Shrewsbury will oblige in the following match!

When we don't win tomorrow, it will equal the club record of 18 league games without victory in a single season. 20 is the record if you overlap seasons, so that one should be broken in a fortnight or so.

I think it's fair to say Colchester have crumbled.

I did hope maybe half-time would stop our usual implosion after one goal goes in, but apparently not. Ridiculously embarrassing. We'll be on 100 goals conceded before April at this rate.

Don't worry, Shrewsbury are in town next week. Definite home win, we end long winless runs for teams. The year at Doncaster had one of the worst seasons in football league history they beat us, and Grimsby hadn't won in 20 odd games the other year before stuffing us 3-0

Colchester were unlucky not to be 3 up before the red. This result, aside from almost guaranteeing safety, does nothing more than paper over the cracks.

It was a horrendous match on a horrendous pitch. Only a decent 10 minute spell from us all game and we managed to win from 2-0 down.

It was clear from the start that we weren't up for it. We got lucky today that Colchester are a bit shit and pretty much helped us back in the game.

When my Bury team faced Colchester in 2013 we dominated for 90 mins barring two Colchester shots that both lead to goals. I asked for passion, commitment and of course pure dedication to the fantastic Bury fans that day and it was duly provided, the only thing that let us down was a failure to score and a failure of the linesman to spot a ball that had gone over the line. All that was managed with a garbage team of players and against a revitalised Colchester team.
Flitcroft had a much better group of players on saturday and aside from a twenty minute spell against one of the worst defences I have ever seen (I was at gigg lane scouting in case you are wondering) Bury lacked commitment and didn't seem bothered bar Leon Clarke and Jones.
This merely proves that I am a better manager than Flitcroft and had it been me in charge on saturday we'd have kept it tight so it wouldn't have been 2-0 and I would have been hoofing the ball forward and making their back four work as hard as possible so most likely the result would have been a convincing 4-0 home win rather than the flattering 5-2 (2-0 down in 20 mins was pathetic btw).
Our singing section were embarrasing with their needless goading and gloating towards an understandably tiny away following and then taunts about them going down and being rubbish etc. As an ex employee of BFC I can only apologise.

If Bury have turned the corner they will at the very least avoid defeat on Tuesday and not capitulate Coventry style at Wigan.
