As part of our look back on the weird year that was 2020, here’s our highlights, lowlights and some great goals.
Paul Mullin: Who else? The Scouse hitman has bagged 19 goals already this season and should easily pass Luke Berry’s recent record of 22 in a season.
Morecambe A: A 5-0 win on the road? A Paul Mullin Hat-trick? Perhaps the most complete performance we’ve seen from the U’s in recent years.
October: A month bookended by defeats to Exeter and Crawley, but big wins against Newport, Scunthorpe, Port Vale and Walsall helped cement us as challengers.
Beating P*sh on Pens in the Papa Johns: Because even though it didn’t really matter, it’s always nice to remind them who are top dogs in Cambridgeshire.
Colchester H: We’ve said all we have to say on this for now, but it was good to see the club move quickly to identify those who booed the anti-racism gesture of taking the knee, and offer them education where required, or banning those too thick to do anything but double down on their racist beliefs.
Stevenage H & A: The recent away game was dreadful, but the 4-0 home defeat last season was as worse a performance from any U’s side anyone had ever seen.
December: The defeat by Stevenage pretty much summed this month up didn’t it? Two League wins in seven games, and even those weren’t particularly convincing performances.
Paul Mullin’s Second against Port Vale (H): Boateng with an incredible pass to Dunk, who crossed it perfectly to Mullin to finish. A prime example of the U’s at their best
Wes Hoolahan against Morecambe (A): That’s what he can do. A masterful goal from edge of the area from the midfield maestro.
Paul Mullin’s First against Morecambe (A): It wasn’t given to him initially, but that doesn’t matter. Look at the technique, the movement, the link up play with Wes. It gets better every time we watch it.
