In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
We also beat Doncaster 5-1 in the League Cup, the same year we went to Birmingham and Liverpool. The Donny win was extra special because it was the 2nd leg, and we'd turned it around. Billy Bremner was their boss IIRC.
That game against Donny went to ET at SJP.It was the League Cup 2nd round 2nd leg..Lost the 1st leg 3-1.

Worth mentioning how much more assured we look at the back with Sweenz and Parkes together....also can’t remember Jake losing out on a 50/50 challenge all night...he also made some strong breaks right down the middle of the field off the back of it all.

I think we are getting a bit carried away here. Two of the goals came in injury time when Colchester were down to 10 men and had basically given up.

Still a great performance again from 1 to 11, hard to pick a MOM Jay or Randall.
I'm sure in most games where any team puts 6 past the other the other team will have 'given up' at some stage.
It's the way we played for the 90 minutes that ends up putting them in that mindset.
27 shots.

Colchester complaining they weren't allowed enough subs.

all the references to 27 years since we last scored 6 conveniently (and appropriately) overlook the game during that period when a team won a League Two match 6-1 at SJP!

Exactly. At some point in any game where there is more than a 4 or 5 goal difference the losing side have mentally fallen apart. In this example it seemed to be after the 2nd goal went in. They had been getting hammered by us constantly throughout the first half and when we got the second they just knew they weren't ever going to come back from it.
