Colchester United midfielder Anthony Wordsworth has been linked with a switch to East Anglian rivals Ipswich Town.

Town are rumoured to be lining up a £200,000 bid for the U's playmaker, who has also been linked with the likes of Charlton Athletic and Peterborough United.

However, U's chairman Robbie Cowling has confirmed that Colchester have not received any firm bids for Wordsworth, who was suspended for the defeat against Scunthorpe United.

Couldn't agree more.

I'm surprised we're not having to pay for them to take him. Make sure they don't get a receipt in case they bring him back as faulty.

He thinks he's a luxury in the team. Take the money and run, and use the money towards a new manager and not promoting a number 2 with the cheap option.

To all the So called fans above me.....

How dare Wordsworth think he is a good player. Scoring only 35 goals in 5 seasons from midfield is a poor return. He is so lazy that he only played 177 games in 5 seasons. Any player worth their salt would have accumulated more in that space of time. I guess it is down to the managers that have stuck by him and played him when fit. No less than 5 managers I believe.

In case you did not realise, I am being sarcastic.

Wordsworth is one of the better players to come through colchesters youth team, and probably one of our best players this century.

I wish you well for your career.

So all of you above, apart from Super, think you know what a good footballers is. Well I've knocked Woody myself, but have always admitted he has tremendous talent. Without doubt he is the most gifted player at the club. The problem with Woody is he needs man management. I'm sure Mick Mac at Ipswich town if he signs him ,will make him a top class player in the championship. He is a task master and no doubt he will get his backside kicked if he fails to pull his weight. He will be Ipswich's gain and Colchester's loss. In fact it will break my heart if he goes to them. Woody working with Joe Dunne will never work because he is so accustom to Joe being one of the lads in the training camp previously. There certainly will be no respect between them, and then communications become strained. Good Luck Woody if you go, but hand on heart you must admit to yourself you have let the Col Utd fans down badly by underperforming on many occasions.

Can I just point out that Woody is a so called professional footballer. He shouldn't need his ego massaged or to be man managed. What he needs to do is grow a pair and play like a man. Step up and be counted.

As for the 35 goals in five years. If you look at one of the previous stories I've put the stats of Woody, you'll see that most of the those goals game in just two seasons. The rest of the time he's been a waste of space.

I will say that he has shown great potential. Shame he just hasn't lived up to it. I think he believes in his own hype and of that of some of those on here. Those rose tinted glasses won't be shared of fans at any other club he plays for.

Wordsworth is about the only player we have produced in the past five seasons who might command a transfer fee of any kind.

That's scant return for the club.

The lad should have moved on 2 years ago when there was far more interest in him, though I'm not sure if any hard offers came in.

For the sake of his own career he needs to move on now.

I wish him well though, he has the talent to push on to a higher level.

Ipswich might start to talk figures at £100,000.

Is there a block button on this website? As I would honestly like to block the comments made by Super. Super please tell me what Col Utd games you have been to this season (if any), because by the sounds of it, you haven't seen Wordsworth play. His goals that you keep mentioning, we're probably only free kicks, which now he couldn't even hit one on target. He is shocking and can't wait for him to leave, and for Col Utd to cash in on him. Bye Woody and hurry up in agreeing personal terms.

Couldn't agree more honest. He is in the Halford mould but not as good. Destined to be a bench warmer elsewhere in my opinion, unless he puts in twice the effort he showed for us!

Hey super: thanks, some very good stats..I never realised Anthony Wordsworth scored so many goals from his midfield position.

I can recall other long serving col u players who, 'while skippering the team from midfield' also had a good goal scoring tally between them.

Harry Berryman, Jimmy Elder, Duncan Forbes, to name but a few, but none as profilic as Woody.

Like you, I wish Woody well, and will be following his future career with great interest.

Super W I always read your comments with interest and on some occasions agree whole heartedly, sadly not on this one. We all see something in a player but I can see nothing in this guy other than a freeloader who feels the game owes him something? I don't for one minute believe Ipswich are interested in him, he possibly put that out there?

If seven goals a season is the bench mark for midfield then we are where we are because of this one particular low expectation.Just because he played 177 games does not make him a good player, I feel it highlights how limited either the resources have been or the options available. I also wish him well, as long as its somewhere else.

Steve, I have a season ticket and don't miss any home games.

Just because you don't agree, it does not make my opinion any less valued.

To me, Woody is technically gifted and is the best passer in our squad. He is just about our only confident player with the ball right now.
Just because he is slow and not as good off the ball as he is on it, it does not make him lazy. You cant make Woody another Roy Keane type player. Neither can Messi become Neil Ruddock. It does not work like that. I accept Wordsworth for what he is. Perhaps we need some strength in Midfield, but that is not his fault.

Welcome to the world of opinions. Yours is 4-4-2 and before that was 'Ward out'. Well done.

Anthony Wordsworth is currently
Colchester United's joint twenty second
all time great league scorer alongside Chris Iwelumo,Trevor Lee and Steve McGavin,who also each scored 35 league goals for the U's.If Woody plays for us again - and I hope that he is here at least until the end of the season - he could become one of Colchester's top twenty
greatest league scorers,by overtaking
Richard Wilkins(36 league goals
for the U's)and Keith Bowen (38
league goals).
As I mentioned here the other day,
Woody now needs only five more goals to become only the twentieth
player to score 40 or more league
goals for the U's.

Didn't the others you mentioned know how to defend as well though. Unlike Wordsworth.

Using Izzet this in this, wow, how can I beat that, lol.

The fact that you're classing Wordsworth a legend tells me how low your ambitions for Colchester United are..

Mark Kinsella apps 180 goals 27 Average games per goal 6.66 Kevin Watson Apps 135 Goals 3 Average games per goal 45. Derek Trevis apps 196 goals 13 average games per goal 15 Adam Locke apps 83 goals 8.

Unlike Wordsworth. Using Izzet this in this, wow, how can I beat that, lol. The fact that you're classing Wordsworth a legend tells me how low your ambitions for Colchester United are.. We're not singing anymore!!!

Its OK stating all these facts of who has done what at the club and how many games and goals blah blah. But where are we in the league? The past is the past and it will always be there in the history books, its today I am worried about!

You can talk about facts and stats, but the actual fact is that Woody is far more lazy then the other players. Yeah he might grab the ODD goal every now and then, but then have you also taken into account that he has occasionally played as a forward rather than a striker at times. From what we have seen of him, he DOESN'T track back and defend, when he loses it, he DOESN'T run too the ball, he just waits for it, he DOESN'T run we'll with the ball - in terms of at the opposition players, oh and he passes it back more than forward. How he became captain, I do not know. I've never heard him talk to a player let alone a team. Hurry up and leave Woody, I doubt you'll be missed much, from the majority of the fans.

Super please tell me what Col Utd games you have been to this season (if any), because by the sounds of it, you haven't seen Wordsworth play. His goals that you keep mentioning, we're probably only free kicks, which now he couldn't even hit one on target. He is shocking and can't wait for him to leave, and for Col Utd to cash in on him. Bye Woody and hurry up in agreeing personal terms.
Steve, I have a season ticket and don't miss any home games.

Just because you don't agree, it does not make my opinion any less valued.

To me, Woody is technically gifted and is the best passer in our squad. He is just about our only confident player with the ball right now.
Just because he is slow and not as good off the ball as he is on it, it does not make him lazy. You cant make Woody another Roy Keane type player. Neither can Messi become Neil Ruddock. It does not work like that. I accept Wordsworth for what he is. Perhaps we need some strength in Midfield, but that is not his fault.

Welcome to the world of opinions. Yours is 4-4-2 and before that was 'Ward out'. Well done.

You you are entitled to your own opinion. But I do tend to disagree with yours quite a lot. I totally disagree that he's the best passer in the squad, as he tends to make a lot of mistakes, which have led to a few goals against us this season. I personally think that Bean, Eastman, Sears, and Gilbey are better passers of the ball. I also feel that he's lazy because he doesn't track back, he doesn't go into tackles, he won't run at the opposition defence, but what he will do is put his hand up for corners and free kicks (which I have to be honest and say that a few years ago he was great at them) which now he would muck up totally and not hit the target. Yeah he may have lost his confidence, but he is not a baby, and should just grow and pair and be a man. Wake up into the real world Woody, as if you were in my profession, you would be sacked. Suppose

A lot of footballers behave like babies. Think of Mario Balotelli, or (closer to home) Jamie Guy. They have to be well managed or their talents will be wasted. Mick McCarthy could be the man to get Woody performing properly at last. And good luck to them both.

Wordsworth is about the only player we have produced in the past five seasons who might command a transfer fee of any kind.

That's scant return for the club.

The lad should have moved on 2 years ago when there was far more interest in him, though I'm not sure if any hard offers came in.

For the sake of his own career he needs to move on now.

I wish him well though, he has the talent to push on to a higher level.

Ipswich might start to talk figures at £100,000.
Good comment.

So all of you above, apart from Super, think you know what a good footballers is. Well I've knocked Woody myself, but have always admitted he has tremendous talent. Without doubt he is the most gifted player at the club. The problem with Woody is he needs man management. I'm sure Mick Mac at Ipswich town if he signs him ,will make him a top class player in the championship. He is a task master and no doubt he will get his backside kicked if he fails to pull his weight. He will be Ipswich's gain and Colchester's loss. In fact it will break my heart if he goes to them. Woody working with Joe Dunne will never work because he is so accustom to Joe being one of the lads in the training camp previously. There certainly will be no respect between them, and then communications become strained. Good Luck Woody if you go, but hand on heart you must admit to yourself you have let the Col Utd fans down badly by underperforming on many occasions.
Well said crazy, and super, and one or two others.
