“I’m blowing here!” - Jabo Ibere
JABO Ibehre has suffered a shock to the system, since signing on loan for Colchester United, though in a good way.
Powerful striker Ibehre, who bagged two goals on an impressive U’s debut against Hartlepool, will be on the look-out for more goals at Swindon Town this evening.
Ibehre’s parent club, MK Dons, are going well in League One, but the 29-year-old was not expecting the intensity of training that has since greeted him at Colchester.
To say he has been out of breath, is an understatement.
“It’s testament to what Joe (Dunne) has done in such a short space of time,” enthused Ibehre, who will be with the U’s for three months.

“I guess it must be more intense than MK Dons, because I was out of breath. I asked the lads – ‘Is it always like this?’
“When I came in on Tuesday and took a look at the players, I thought – ‘what the hell is going on here? Why are we down here?’ You just have to take a look at our bench.
“I’m over the moon with my goals, and with the way that we all played. It was a fantastic day for everyone.”
Now Ibehre will be looking to mark his first away game, in a U’s shirt, with another strong display at the County Ground.
“It’s a big, big game,” admitted Ibehre.
“But the best form of defence is attack.”
