Once again a defensive blunder has cost us in a match.

How many more times is Ethan - Landell going to be selected ahead of Sodje?.

I accept that Southend United were on a good run and this match was always going to be a test.

Now the poor long suffering fans will have to make a fruitless trek all the way to Essex for the replay.

It doesn't look like we will be getting that dream draw in round 3 if we can't beat this league 2 outfit on our own patch.

I think the gaffer needs to select a settled side and dispense with the services of players who aren't going to make it at this level.

A huge squad overhaul is needed hopefully in January if we can move on players that aren't required at our club.

Now it's back to the league aside from the Mickey Mouse cup in midweek.

The support again today was disappointing,don't think the locals were up for the cup like at other venues today.

Agree about Ebanks-Landel eileen,that's three games and three goals he's given away now,the lad may well become a good player in time, but he's currently not strong enough and can't hold opponents off.Efe hasn't done himself any favours with his disciplinary record this season, but by continuing to replace him with such an accident prone player Blackwell is cutting off his nose to spite his face.Leaving Ebanks out would also enable all the other loan players to be included for the league games which would give us more attacking options.

Agreed, but at the end of the day Kevin has brought the lad in to a do a job which for the main part he's doing apart from these gross lapses of concentration which is killing us.
We will have to live with it until such time as we have our reinforcements back.

Easy do you really think we have an earthling of a chance of winning down at Roots Hall?.

It's a good draw against Bradford or Brentford if we win down there.

Like the manager says,the last thing we needed was a replay on a tuesday night.

Our focus must remain getting out of the bottom four now.

We have enough games in December as it is.
