Huws Linked With U's
Wednesday, 9th Jun 2021 14:55
Midfielder Emyr Huws is the latest former Town player being linked with a move to Colchester United.
The Welshman was among those released by the Blues at the end 2020/21 after an injury-hit spell at Portman Road.
According to the EADT, The U’s are showing interest in the 27-year-old, who initially joined Town from Cardiff in January 2017 before making the move permanent the following summer.
We understand the former Manchester City trainee has also received interest from clubs in the MLS.
Colchester have already signed ex-Blues midfielder Cole Skuse on a two-year deal this summer, while former skipper Luke Chambers is also understood to be on the verge of joining the North Essex club on the same basis.
Alan Judge is another former Town man interesting the U’s, while we understand it’s now looking less likely that Freddie Sears will be returning to the JobServe Community Stadium than it previously appeared.
We understand Leyton Orient is a possible destination for the 31-year-old.

Those scouts at Colchester must have a small travel budget.

Plenty of former players finding their true level with an average L2 club (no disrespect intended to Col U) - older legs or not. Shows how wrong so many of us - me included - were this time last year when we deluded ourselves into believing we had a chance of automatic promotion - talented squad, strength in depth etc. What a load of b@ll@cks that was. The truth is that we would have struggled even with Pep in charge let alone Lambert. Now is a time to look forward rather than backwards but for me this is yet another stark reminder of the depths we had plunged to under Evans. Mind numbing when we were celebrating European glory 40 years ago. My last comment on such a negative subject - new season ticket in hand (I stopped in 2019 in protest against Evans) and can’t wait to see the transfer activity over the next fee weeks and then back at a buzzing and bouncing PR in August (hopefully!)

They’d be wasting their money on him .

Sadly he was awful following his injury and never seemed to be able to get fit, but then most of the 1st team were unfit anyway!!

Spiritofjohn - the scouting budget is about the same as towns.
U's requirement - played for town - you will do for us.
Towns requirement - played at anytime for Wigan, portsmouth, accrington stanley or any other team managed by Cook - you will do for us

Do they need some fences painted then??

I think this confirms a lot about our squad quality past few years that the players that some on here thought cook etc should’ve got us promoted back to the championship with are showing how average at best they were. Onwards and upwards COYB

Shows the standard of some of our players got to in our squad if Col U whom only just escaped the conference are now interested in.

The CUFC makeover continues. "If ITFC do it, so can we."

Nice to see Ipswich "reserves" taking shape!!

Huws is joining ColU in what capacity exactly? Not as a professional footballer, surely—he hasn't done that for years.

I’d hate to be a Colchester supporter right now being linked with all our cast-offs. At least we are looking up again rather than down.
|fergalsharkey added 17:48 - Jun 9|
i think he had a brilliant minute and a half for us in his first game.
|Linkboy13 added 17:57 - Jun 9|
Really feel sorry for the bloke but injuries finished him as a top class championship player two or three years ago. Not being able to train at a level required to get fit enough for first team football was obviously picked up by Cook who was not prepared to have any passengers in the squad. Just hope and pray he has a successful time at Colchester but i fear he might have to go non league. Best of luck Emyr.

his lack of fitness, scouseness and nit having played for Cook ruled him out. I think the reason Col U get a lot of ex Ipswich players is geography rather than a reflection on talent. People have lives and families and it seems Suffolk is somewhere people want to live. Lots on here forget when they are banging their supporter drum that players consider more than just the best level, they sometimes have to think about the person they married and their kids education etc. Hope he does well as at 27 he should be approaching his prime but for injuries.
