Cambridge United’s poor form continued on Saturday after a capitulation saw bottom of the table Stevenage leave the Abbey Stadium with all three points after an emphatic 4-0 win.

The win moved Stevenage off the bottom of League Two, but It’s now one win in eight for United during a downward spiral that has been marked by sides in poor form changing their fortunes in a match against the U’s. Mansfield hadn’t won in eight league games, Macclesfield hadn’t won in nine and Stevenage hadn’t won since October yet they’ve all beaten Cambridge in recent weeks.

The U’s decent early season form means they still sit in mid-table. Still, the team’s rapid deterioration in performance is starting to more than worry supporters who were not shy in voicing their displeasure when they took to social media to react to the result.


Many feel the club should sack experienced manager Colin Calderwood, with some suggesting plenty of his players should follow him out the door.

Having seen experienced trio, Marc Richards, Elliot Ward and Gary Deegan recently leave the club, with little prospect of any replacements, many fans feel a slide towards relegation is inevitable unless the club makes a change in the technical area and completely revamp the squad.

Here is a selection of angry responses to the result on Twitter.

    Seriously, this is beyond a joke. The next win will probably be in the National League as the U’s have completely forgotten how to win. I didn’t think I would even be thinking about the “R” word this season but at the rate we are going we will be stranded on 31 points and with the inevitable conclusion. I cannot believe that the Board CAN BE SO, SO NAIVE!!!!!!!!!!!
