Some of the football was ok, mot much more than that. And only when we passed it through them. The occasional punt up field frm Taff is ok when it's something different, but not the whole time.

Jermaine looks on the way back. LDSL is capable of tearing up this league talent-wise, but the Family Stand groaners will never let him produce at home.

There were times when it looked like we had a front three last night, Gwion, MM and Marriott. That's the way forward for sure. Neither Kanu nor Gormley is productive enough to play whole games, week in week out.

Otherwise, I could never quite work out what the formation was, or who was playing where within it.

McCann is still our biggest problem by far.

An unexpected point...but confusion still reigns.

Baffling tactics and team selection....Players once again in different positions all over the park.

It's almost like McCann is still in pre season mode.

If he doesn't fancy Miller fair enough but we are woefully short of firepower and there's a big hole in the team since Morias got injured...

Keeping Marriott fit is the number one priority now ...without him, where are the goals coming from?

Their goals will no doubt be given away by individual errors.
Watching and listening on iFollow was not very enjoyable for the first half. I thought we were lucky to be only one goal down.
Second half I thought we could have won.
We all know that McCann is inexperienced. But as Super says he is stuck with only one decent striker at the moment.
None of us know what he should do.
DMac isn't going to replace him.
Hopefully McCann will work it out.

Pretty sure the transfer window is shut until January, but what do I know?

Joe Gormley is no longer at Posh. He is back at Cliftonville. You might be mistaking him for Miller for some very weird reason.

"McCann" as you rudely referred to isn't a problem to most fans. He is learning to be a football manager which is not as easy as you think it is.

Learning?

He's had two spells as an assistant manager and he's well into his second season as a manager.

His apprentiship is done.

He's also had 20 years as a player

It's time for him to deliver

And you're right....it's not "McCann"

It's Bassett.

Premier League scouts being present the reason for LDSL's improved efforts?

Let's hope not. Needs to do it more than the odd game though.

Crickey...

The heirachy appear to be going a little bit OTT over this point against a patched up Southend side.

You're right. My apologies to Joe Gormley if he's reading this in Ireland. That was unfair.
