Clueless, hopeless monotonous crap. 3 games against 3 average sides including bottom of the league stevenage we have scored 1 conceded 7 and picked up no points. And from the minute we went behidn today i never thought for a moment we’d get back into it. A weird team selection with clifton who has been excrement this season alongside hewitt who does nothing in the middle just screams out no creativity. Vernam and rose not close enough to hanson when he did win a header from our only tactic. Can see why vernam hasnt been playing. Defending was schoolboy like, hendrie at fault for the second with a lazy swing of the boot, no idea whats happened to him. Looked okay at start of 2nd half when we used moses but apart from that we were woeful. And what worries me most is i dont think orient were that good, ffs James alabi outpaced us from our own half. We have problems all over and i sensed a lot of anger from
The crowd today, turning on MJ. Who for all i care can go, i am seeing no improvement whatsoever, fed up of this club amd its inability to move forward.

Thank god there is only one relegation place this season and on that performance I'm not sure we are safe.

Shocking, mostly down to Jolly with his poor team selections square pegs, dropping or moving form players and 433 really isn't working either but he keeps going back to it, then after were losing he realises 442 might work.

Sounds like a collective, systematic  failure today.  Very worrying.  All this against mediocre teams,
how bad does this make us?

I didn’t go today, and I did expect a defeat, but still, WOW. I’m like others on here, not fussed whether MJ stays now. Dreading the next game I go to......

Do we need to get Hanson booked a few times thus incurring a suspension, then we may start playing it on the deck, giving time for the midfield to get into the oppositions penalty area.

I'd just like to know what the plan is? Whacking it to Hanson isn't a plan, especially when he's never got anybody close enough to pass it to. It seems more and more hit and hope each week. What do they actually work on in training? It's just a mystery what Jolley is trying to do and the high tempo, attacking game we've been promised certainly doesn't look like it is going to materialise this season.

In initial defence of Jolley...
i think everyone expected changes given the no show last time out...5 might have been a suprise but, Gibson back in and Green out were widely called for, as was the lack of width/ pace so Rose and Vernam in again a generally positive idea.  Clifton in after a few games out seemed a suprise as was Hewitt chosen in midfield where he truly has shown little.
However from the off whatever Jolley had tried to do didnt work, none of the midfield 3 seemed clear on what they were doing and Rose and Vernam miles away from Hanson.
Jolley's decisions also not helped by the whole side looking like it was sleepwalking, zero anticipation, minimal desire to want the ball or to win it back when we didnt have possession.

In defence of Jolley again, he identified some of the problems and made subs at half time, Green and especially Ogbu livening things up and in reality we should have been at least back in the game with Hanson, Whitehouse and Rose all having chances during a bright start to the 2nd half. Those chances werent taken and proved costly when we got caught twice after that.

I think today proved a few things;
too many changes are counter productive
Rose should be used as an impact player
Vernam isnt the answer ( i wouldnt be suprised if he goes in Jan )
Hewitt is NOT a midfielder
the quality of the squad is too thin

Three losses on the bounce but still close to the play off's. The last three performances though are a worry as is Jolley's tinkering.
