you could be York losing 7-1 to Gateshead and Leeds losing their third league game in a row haha, I think we'll do alright this season, just a shocker by one defender first half.

For what it's worth 6 - 1

I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

Early days yet, I'm not sure how we will get on but from what I've seen, we could do with a striker, centre midfielder and centre half before the window closes.

I fully expected us to lose what looked like a difficult game against a team who I reckon will be up there, so not surprised really. Early days yet, so I'm not jumping to conclusions or allowing my fears about a lack of quality at CB and CM to get out of hand. Two home games coming up. If we can win one or both, whilst getting a player or two in (we still need that 4th striker too), then we should be in an ok position. I'm sure Hurst knows what's missing from the squad. I am a bit worried (and have been for some time) about the relative merits of Berrett/Summerfield/Chambers and wish we could have brought in some midfielders with more quality and who were winners, but a bit early to be judging anyone too harshly.

On another night we might have got something out of this game, and probably a point from last Saturday. I think Colchester are a good team. Disappointing evening in lots of ways but we should be philosophical, learn from our mistakes and move on quickly.

Final point - I do wonder about our preparation and whether we are giving ourselves the best chance of getting results away from home by travelling long distances on the day. I think this is an area of expenditure the club has looked to curtail in recent seasons; reducing overnight stays and I think it needs reviewing. I thought I detected a little reference to this from PH in the post match interview.

Good fight back but can't allow a team such a big lead and expect to get any points! My main concern at the moment is that Hurst doesn't seem to know what his best 11 is or which formation suits them best! He's changed it several times already!

It usually takes him till April before he works out  what his best 11 is
