From the sofa

We didn't get beat, we kept a clean sheet and we looked solid (admittedly we weren't put under much pressure. In truth, it looked like two very poor sides.

However, they are the only side in the EFL below us and they looked marginally more threatening than us. The positives are that we know that Southend and Scunny are not very good so we won't need to be much better to stay up.

I thought Habergham looked as good as any new signing for months, he was solid and didn't struggle with the pace of the game. Both CB's were very solid, won everything.

Spokes and Hewitt work hard but their effectiveness doesn't extend much beyond that. More quality on the ball in midfield is as big a priority as any.

That said we desperately lack cutting edge, we still carried zero goal threat. Maybe Hanson, Scannell and Max when he gets up and running will go someway to amending that but that alone won't be enough.

We are also a horrible combination of being quite easy to get at but give away oodles of cheap, soft free kicks, Green and Hewitt are big offenders of this.

Please get some better players in this week. Scunny are really rubbish and we need to win next week. UTM


I've wasted my life in black and white, a pathetic act for a worthless cause

Need a couple of new central midfielders IMHO. Hewitt not good enough and is a bit of passenger.

When Hewitt has better players around him I think he tends to have more of an influence.

We didn’t get beat and I bet that was the objective. Boys did job they were asked to do. Forwards being slagged off but the job today was not to concede and everyone played with that in mind Williams and Green supporting the midfield Spokes and Hewitt supporting the CDs. Not easy for any forward to play off that as we saw when changes were made. Plus the pitch was awful you can’t expect free flowing football on that! It’s something to build on as they work out how to play for attacking play starting at the back. We saw more fight today that’s a plus!

A clean sheet and a point in a poor game. Southend very high in the form table of late. Will take that, hopefully give a bit of confidence to the defensive unit as they’ve looked void of it.

Great to see Hanson, Scannell and Max back. Keep them fit it’ll be like a few new signings.

No such thing as must wins at this stage of the seasons but there are must not lose.

The pitch btw! Shocking and a fine example of how fentynomics has caused us so many issue. Feel for the groundsman, having his hands tied behind his back.

Three midfielders injured, Pollock played with an injury, Habergham full debut, Spokes and Wright played nearly 90 minutes in first game back and two more returnees from the bench. Certainly not ideal and a decent point in the circumstances.

Pitches all over the country are in a mess, Colchester's looked excrement, Leeds looked like it hadnt seen a mower in 6 months.

If we were safe in mid-table I wouldn't pay to watch any game on this pitch, just the away games. Every single game scrappy from either side. It's enough for our out of sorts players to battle with their own confidence demons as well as facing up the opposition and then they have to battle with the pitch too. Not sure whether a summer of growth will sort it out either, maybe ruined for a good year or two. A disgrace that it was left unattended. No thought for the players trying to gain some confidence, a bit of trust in the pitch would help, and no thought to the entertainment value for fans. Just mean penny pinching which could cost more than was saved by fans like me not being entertained at all and deciding not to spend money. Pitch was definitely the winner yet again this afternoon..
