Season Review

After scoring 14 goals in the previous season, it seemed unlikely that Colchester were going to hold on to Lomana LuaLua for long, and a stunning hat-trick at QPR turned a 1-0 first leg defeat into a 4-3 aggregate win. The virtuoso performance by the youngster from Kinshasa persuaded Newcastle boss Bobby Robson to part with a staggering £2.25m in September 2000. It was a fantastic deal for Colchester and secured the medium term future of the club.

The FA Cup dream ended, as usual, at the hands of non-League opposition. Yeovil hammered United 5-1, securing ample revenge for the 7-1 replay win United had inflicted at Huish Park in 1958.

In the league, Steve Whitton steered his troops to six points clear of relegation.
