Cambridge Paper Review

19 December 2016

What the press made of the third straight defeat

The Chronicle
Crewe Alex slipped to a third straight defeat and down to 16th in League Two after a disappointing afternoon at Cambridge United on Saturday.
The Alex fell behind early in the second half to an Uche Ikpeazu strike, and had a mountain to climb when Greg Taylor’s screamer made it 2-0 on the hour.
James Jones got his side back in it but the Railwaymen could not find a leveller at a raucous Cambs Glass Stadium.
The result means it is two wins in 17 for Crewe and they are now just five points off the drop zone.

The Cambridge News
If you think sauce is something you put on your chips, get with the program (or should it be programme?) grandad!
Now it is the buzzword to describe Greg Taylor’s blistering finish in Cambridge United’s win over Crewe on Saturday.
That is all thanks to Uche Ikpeazu using the expression in a video picking his United goals of the season so far, hence the proliferation of sauce-related hashtags on Twitter in the aftermath of the victory.
But while Taylor’s stunner to put United 2-0 up may have been dripping in condiment, the same can be said of the run of form that has seen Shaun Derry’s side turn bottom spot, after the club’s worst start to a Football League season, into a place in the play-off zone in just 12 matches.
You can only imagine the odds you would have got at the bookies for that kind of transformation over the course of a campaign, let alone in such a short period of time.
