A big trip for you and a great chance to test yourselves against the best in the country!

Crystal Palace really are Liverpools bogey team

Justice- I think your expectations are a little too much... ;)

Griffin- It'll be a tough test for sure but one I'm looking forward to. Liverpool were completely outclassed by Palace!

A frustrating set of results id imagine, but you are through in the cup and draws are a good platform to build on

I guess its fair to say good league performances were Few(ster) and far between this month! Still top of the pops, however, and progression in the FA Cup is always a positive!

Griffin: It was a very difficult month in the end, I am disappointed with the amount of points dropped, especially with it being against sides such as Bury but a little slump was bound to happen at some point. Cup progression is something to take from it, definitely.

Justice: Very good pun there. ;)

McLaughlin Turns Down Dundee

Colchester boss McLaughlin has stated that he has turned down Scottish Premiership side Dundee in order to remain at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Dundee entered talks with McLaughlin, 22, however the United manager stated that he 'wants to stay with Colchester for the foreseeable future,' in the talks that lasted little over half an hour, reports say.

'The Dee,' who play their games at Dens Park these days, currently sit in sixth in the SPL, just two points off the two Europa League places which the league currently has secured. Former manager Paul Hartley, who had spent four years in the role, left to join fellow Premiership side Hearts earlier this week.

The Irishman guided the U's to the League 2 title last season and in the clubs first year back in the third tier of English football, Colchester sit top of table, a point clear of former Premier League champions Blackburn Rovers in second.

In a club statement, Colchester have stated, "Paddy was granted permission to speak to Dundee following their enquiry into his services this week. We, as a club, have always said that we won't get in his way if he does wish to part ways with the club and move onto pastures new. However, we are delighted to announce that Paddy wishes to stay with the club and has turned down the offer from Dundee."

"I'm sure we'll be in this situation again some time soon, Paddy has delivered a lot of success in his tenure here and we are certain that more will follow and with that, comes fresh interest. We now look to the upcoming fixtures in the busy closing months of the 17/18 season."

Think rejecting Dundee may be the best move for you as you seem to be on course for massive things with Colchester rather than struglging against the established elite in Scotland!

I guess you could say you have Dun the Dee-d of rejecting Dundee, to continue your (Dun)dee-d of making Colchester United the best team in England. In my opinion, it would have been (Dun)dee-trimental to leave at this stage.
