After the Lord Mayor's show,  we were very poor from the start, Crewe had the measure of us and closed us down every minute of the game and gave us no time at all.
They played the ball on the ground and forced us to play long, Summerfield had a nightmare of a game but nobody else had any time at all on the ball.
Crewe thoroughly deserved the win after out playing and out thinking us.
Very surprised that Hurst didn't try something different in the second half because it was obvious that our tactics weren't working.
I thought for a very short period that Jackson and Bolarinwa might just do something when they came on but it was more wishful thinking than anything else.

Gowling wants a big kick up the backside, and fining for that hand ball.  Absolutely no reason to do it

The ref didn't help the game at all. after the pen save thought that might have kick started us. Crew played well and closed us down efficiently but i dont think they were better then us at all. Yet again mistakes cost us the game

Pretty poor display for the most part, probably the worst we've played so far. Didn't create much of note and Crewe deserved the win without being anything special. They didn't let us get the ball down and forced us to play direct, which just didn't work in the blustery conditions.

Onto the next one we go.

Regardless of some dubious decisions including not giving the most obvious penalty in the world for a rugby tackle in the box I think they looked a lot better than us on the day. Passed it around and moved well,kept the pressure on so we couldn't play or get an inch to move. They read the game well and picked up balls then just kept hold of it better. If we got a goal from the penalty that wasn't given and managed to keep them getting another I think we would have come out very lucky. We could have had one from Tuton but he's offside so much it's going to cost us more goals if that keeps up.

Gowling was back to being Gowling and Summerfield had another game like Morecambe I felt where he was dithering and giving the ball away cheaply with poor passes and indecision. Pearson also seemed to be struggling to cope under pressure and wasn't thinking where he hit the ball.

the best Team won , simple as that ..... We were slow on the ball , poor in the pass and offered little in front of goal .  Some times you get beat by the better team but our effort was poor

No pattern to our play. Overhitting the ball in the first half. No overlap from fullbacks where there should have been with the wind behind us. Instead of playing down the wings with ball on deck so ball could be played back just resorted to high balls down the middle to their goalkeeper. Bogle started off ok but then got frustrated with lack of service. If not for Macca and Pearson score would have been a lot worse. We can only live and learn so now is the time to get learning from the things we are doing wrong. There was plenty to learn from todays game. Crewe are a better team at the moment than we are,but we have to have patience and keep plugging away until consistency becomes the norm.

This is exactly the sort of team we struggle against, a well structured, do thr simple stuff well team. Give us an attacking team and we seem to do a lot better. And I think today highlights what will be our major issue this season, that we are relying heavily on our attack, and if theyre not on their game, the defense cant be relied upon to get us the result. We will see very few draws this season.

Up until the penalty Crewe were just probing and looking for soft free kicks hoping to get something from set plays. They were there for the taking by a high tempo game something we allowed them to close down far too easily. There was very little support for Vose who ended up doing to much and losing possession, Gowling was great heading the ball but no direction so we ended up being back on defensive duties and the least said about his handball the better. Summerfield should have been replaced at half time, the same for Tuton who seemed hapless.

The Ref gave them almost everything whilst denying us a stone wall penalty and in every 50/50 challenge blew up for them.

Crewe deserved their win because Town did nothing to really challenge them, poor display in front of over 5,000.

Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Can't blame Crewe today. They wasn't anything special and if we can play how I know we can we could of won today. They came and completely took Omar out the game. Omar himself seemed off par plus they got the REF onside. Proper smash and grab game and deserved to win. We looked slow in our build up play and struggled to create chances due to Crewes back four which I feel played superbly. On the other hand Macca was hot and cold all game. Made a brilliant save for the Penalty but was at fault for their second.

Never mind roll on next game.
