    Just hoping for another good performance. No bragging rights up for grabs this weekend.

    Looks like the strongest team we could put out under the circumstances.

    Think Southend have only scored 6 goals in 15 games…we like giving out early Xmas presents so 2-0 to Southend!

    Aye, wouldn’t be surprised!

    Looks like the best possible lineup given the absence of Clarke and McGahey.

    Attack them like we did the other Essex boys is all I ask.

    Absolute rubbish so far, don’t think we’ve had a single shot on target against the worst team in English football!

    I’ll correct my last post…Scunthorpe United are the worst team in English football.

    Lose a couple of players and we are back to the early season. Might as well stick us lot on the bench for what it offers.

    Why don’t they ever mix it up with Eisa on the right. We are so predictable well not today!!

    If they were dog mess – what were we?

    To be fair, I reckon that two games a week for long periods left us leggy and drained.

    A bit unlucky that they got the opportunity to cross but who gave the forward the space, might we ask? Three, maybe even two steps forward instead of standing around and the shot would have been blocked.

    I really thought we should have had two penalties in the match: first was immediately after the shot onto the post and I could have sworn that the ball was also handled according to the current rules.

    BUT – we actually deserved what we got.
    There were four players, who for me, had their worst game of the season.

    Cannot believe we had no shots on target, no shots on target!!!

    Against the worst team. This is diabolical it really is. No striking options – Loft not good enough consistently, Jarvis – just give up football please.
    Eisa looked garbage Gillead looked to be carrying a knock, Green ineffective.

    What did Cox say to them at half time for them to come out and not give a shit?

    What absolout garbage. Everyone involved today comes out of that with 0 credit.

    Beaten by the worst team we’ve played in years without even threatening them other than a 30 yard effort.

    No effort, no ability, nothing.

    Back to the way we looked at the start of the season.

    Shit.

    Last week we were robbed this week we rolled over and let them take what they wanted.

    Apart from Clarke (rested today) Howard and Onariaise, we are now back to the squad that was available earlier in the season – and we all know how that went.

    I’d love to be in the dressing room at ht to see what our motivational management team are saying because it’s got to be something pretty unmotivating.
    After feeling quite positive a week ago I fear the worst, Cox seems quite clueless.

    Cox said he had a go at them at half time. Obviously took a lot of notice !

    Or maybe they did?
    Maybe, like so many these days, they are all snowflakes and took the hump?

    Can anyone tell me what eisa, green, Jarvis and macatee bring to the team at the minute?
    Eisa: is sulking after a none appearing transfer
    Macatee: see above
    Green: been here a nearly a year clearly not good enough
    Jarvis: not seen much but don’t think he is good

    If Eisa & McAttee are wanting a big money move, then they’re going the wrong way about showcasing their skills.

    I’ve never seen a player who runs hot and cold as much as Eisa. He makes Hakeeb look like Mr Consistency!

    Jarvis does look no better than National League standard but I think there’s a player in Devarn Green, but he needs a run of games in the same position.

    Too many other unknown quantities also. Hippolyte, Mooney, Dunwald-Turan (I’d even add Taylor to that).

    Catch-22. When Cox can field his best players we look okay. But through no fault of his own he can’t and the second string don’t look good enough.

    When Mr Cox put the 3 starters on the bench for Colchester he was targeting the ‘certain’ 3 points from the Southend game !!

    It doesn’t work !! So we got 0 from 6 and the common denominator – The Manager. Yet the players are to blame not him ! It his team.
