We won it but that wasn't great. A win is a win.

Some pretty good pens there apart from Joe Pigotts shocker. I’ll be far less concerned for future shoot outs if that was anything to go by.

I've watched a few Colchester games and that's by far the best they have played especially first half they were very up for it tonight.

Does Pigott still deserve a chance in the first team? I listened, but I didn’t watch. It sounded like he was lively? Reason I ask is if Bonne is recalled, do we have enough cover?

He looked like a player that hadn’t had much game time tbh … as the game went on he started to show sparks of what he can do …

Hardly a surprise that really is it KB… I always felt this would be a potential banana skin , especially as we were at home coz they’d just sit back and try and hit us on the break , like all teams do when they come here .

But we’re through … so hold on to yer hat 🎩 👍

8,100 was a pretty decent attendance and not far short of our FA Cup crowd.

My thoughts on some of the players from last night, Good things being talked about Clements and I agree but the fact is he wasn't tested in defence, and Pigott needs a run of games which he would have had had it not been for Bonne playing so well I think he will come good given the chance, and Celina such a classy player his passing can change games and what a great pen, pity he's lightweight but obviously he loves being at Ipswich.

Thought Fraser was excellent second half. Really pinging some great balls about. Nearly scored a goal from a great move he started. Just a bit too lightweight at times.
Talking of lightweight….. Burgess getting man-handled and out-paced by Sears.

Most of what impressed me about Clements was going forward, linked up well, got into the box, crisp passing, good delivery, did very well. Every bit as good as Penney.

The thing that struck me was how disjointed it was a times, and the importance of game time. Pigott looked to be struggling to get his touch and his timing was all over the place wasn’t it, ( offsides). Playing U23’s occasionally doesn’t really really help their overall match fitness and senior game sharpness does it. I think we need to be feeding the odd player into league games ….if Cook insists on the same shape and tactic throughout his sides then they should at least know what to do when they come into the first team.

I liked the look of the Col U GK….

Fraser was excellent as you say, prefer that to Evans for sure.

Watched extended highlights.

Hladky is bloody useless, move him on in Jan. Hes my 3rd choice now and thats saying something!

Piggott, Fraser, Chaplin looking good.

Barry looks greedy, move him on in Jan.

Do you remember seeing him make his senior debut at Luton away in a cup match ?...hes come on in leaps and bounds since that night .

I see we are now the group winners after the spammers fielded an illegible player and were docked 3 points. Colchester now qualify too

Just another example how Cookie is fantastic…. he’s got a team that doesn’t select ineligible players. All good. Town vs Col u in the final sounds good :D

I didn’t think it was as poor a game as some have suggested. It was certainly frustrating but given many of our team were second string and for most of the game Colchester had 9 players behind the ball it was never going to be easy. I guess it could have been worse, we could have been supporting Sunderland who lost on pens to Bradford City.
At least one positive came out of the fixture for me and that was Town scoring four consecutive cracking penalties, that at least says something about the confidence of our boys.
