Carl Pentney: Sad things didn't work out at Colchester

The 23-year-old parted company with the U's on Tuesday after having his contract cancelled by mutual consent.

Pentney joined the club in August 2010 but failed to make a senior appearance during his two-and-a-half-year spell at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

He did however make a number of loan moves including spells with non-league clubs Woking and Chelmsford City.

"It's disappointing to leave Colchester but I've come to a point in my career where I need to play games," Pentney told The Daily Gazette.

He added: "I always hoped that I would get a chance at Colchester but things didn't work out."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
