Blues to Face Colchester in Pre-Season Double Header
Thursday, 13th Aug 2020 14:26

Town have announced that they will be facing Colchester United in two back-to-back behind-closed-doors 75-minute games at the JobServe Community Stadium on Tuesday 18th August with the matches streamed live (kick-offs 6pm and 8pm).

With no fans present, Colchester are providing a streaming service using their match analysis coverage. Former Blues midfielder David Gregory, now the head of media with the U’s, will be commentating.

The stream for the two games costs £5 with the Blues receiving 50 per cent of the revenue. It can be accessed here.

The Blues will be playing five pre-season matches, all but one away from home. Town also face a trip to Tottenham’s new stadium on Saturday 22nd August.

Gutted would have gone as it's a 2 minute drive for me

Well, this should allow Lambert to give most of his 40-strong squad a run out.

Why not play 90mins like they do in a game of football?!! Is there going to be a drinks break every 17.5 minutes, nap time on the hour and a 5minute break with 10 minutes to go so that the players can check their twitter, Instagram and fb accounts and take a couple of selfies !!

Interesting to see how much part Norwood takes. Haven't seen any photos of him training

Chepstow: I think the format is designed to give the whole squad a run-out. Probably they think no-one is quite up to 90 minutes the first time round, and by fielding two different teams (I assume), nearly everyone will get a chance to show what they can do. But I appreciate the humour! [One wonders is some of them will EVER be up to 90 minutes, let alone the first time round.]
