    Video Southend v Coventry

    Does anyone else reckon it was an OG for our first goal? Looked as though Hiwula missed the ball, their player lifted his leg to block the shot he thought Hiwula was going to take and then shins it in his own net? Might be completely wrong, but it just looks strange every time I watch it...

    Things that annoy you

    Americanisms creeping into football terminology. Just heard Gary Lineker refer to Mauricio Sari as “Chelsea’s head coach”. What’s all that about, what happened to them just being the manager? Seeing it a lot these days! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    That’s more like it. Thank fuck Robins was watching the same game as us on Tuesday! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    JP heading out on loan

    They may improve his knowledge of the offside rule, but not his ability as a striker. Even when McNulty wasn’t firing last season, you could see his all round play was geared towards him being a good forward at the level we were at, it just wasn’t going in for him at the start. I don’t see...

    JP heading out on loan

    Of course no one’s expecting him to be a similar player to Biamou or play in a similar role, but in a change of system alongside JCH then he could do a job Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    JP heading out on loan

    Quite annoyed by this if I’m honest. Saw him against Oxford when he came on and brought a different dynamic up top with Biamou, made a real difference. Also had a pretty tidy finish from a header ruled out (unfairly for me!) for offside which proves that he’s a finisher. Never understood why he...

    Biamou Injury

    JCH has to start now, up top with Hiwula or Ponticelli. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Early days - odd results

    Well seeing as Max seems to be out for a little while, it’s got to be Hiwula up top with JCH in a 442 with the ball primarily on the deck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Liability

    I’ll give him the save in the first half, but his clangers in the second will surely seal his fate. I’ll have nightmares about their second goal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Early days - odd results

    Agree completely about Bakayoko and Sterling, both a complete regression from what we had in their respective positions previously. However I do like the look of Hiwula, played up top and with the ball to his feet and he could be a real player for us! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ratings

    O’Brien 2 - I’ll give him a couple of points for the decent save in the first half, but that’s it. Two shocking mistakes gifting them two goals they didn’t really deserve. Stays on his line way too much, their free header chance from a yard out in the second half should have been his to come and...

    Can we just take O’Brien out of the squad completely? I’d honestly rather have Addai on the bench! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Horrendous. Really concerned that there seemed to be no urgency from anyone tonight, Hyam being the only one to at least try and drive the team forwards and he’s a centre half FFS. Thomas had some nice touches, seemed as if he could have made things happen but everyone around him seemed about a...

    EFL Cup

    Just checked and we’re in the southern section so won’t be playing them! In that case, either Villa (home or away) or Wimbledon away as it’s nice and local for me! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Early goals

    Off the top of my head, we have conceded goals within the first 5 minutes of games against Accrington, Yeovil and Lincoln. All at home and all ending in resounding defeats. Is there something fundamentally wrong with the mentality of our players when the game gets off to a bad start? Are we...
