We had two efforts on target so i'm afraid McGreal must have been watching a different game to the rest of us.

Team talk after conceding a goal before half time? Done that a few times before I reckon.

McGreal is just another in a long line of recent managers who, quite frankly is just not up to the job. The desperate deadline day fiasco of signing 5 players, all of them 'serial loanees' not really wanted by any other clubs, just highlights how out of his depth he is. I think it's just a matter of time before this club sinks into non-league obscurity, if not this season then next or the one after, probably never to return. Depressing times indeed.

“But looking at the game overall, we had 17 or 18 shots on goal with ten or 11 on target and we keep going back to us not being sharp enough in both boxes.


Post Wycombe - Shot count must have included back passes - JM it's called lack of quality .

It seems we come up against the best keeper in the league "every week?" Luckily there are teams at the bottom of the league that are suffering much worse than we are. I can't even talk football to my daughter who lives and (sort of) "supports" Chesterfield. Oh my!

We don't. Our finishing lacks composure which means we don't take simple chances that other teams seem to bury without too much bother.

Not so wrong about Coventry as evidently destroyed Luton yesterday according to my mate so maybe our draw was a lot better than many thought.

But we snatched at things, and we didn’t show enough composure on the day.

Post Oxford City - JMc you forget also passion, desire or urgency against a non league team that barely broke sweat .
What we did show was some players and mangement are clearly out of there depth .

"It's a cup competition that generates a lot of money for the club and we wanted to do well for the fans and for the club.

"It hasn't worked but there's no use dwelling on it - we have to move on because the games come thick and fast."

Quite right JMc, lets just sweep this embrassment and incompetence of a 1-0 home defeat, against a non league side, two divisions below us, who are near enough bottom, under the carpet (where's the Henry ) .

Post Southend - Chuckaturd Special - Sadly JMc cup filleth cover ..
Colchester United head coach John McGreal admits he was disappointed with the performance of his side after they were beaten 2-0 at Southend United tonight to bow out of this season’s Checkatrade Trophy.

The U’s made nine changes to their starting line-up for their final Group B game at Roots Hall, which they had to win to progress to the knockout stages of the competition.

McGreal said: “It wasn’t good.
“They were players who have played in the first team and it wasn’t a weakened team, as such.
“We’ve asked them to put in a performance but they haven’t been able to do that.
“I was expecting more from the players who were given their opportunity to impress.
“We’ve brought players in who have been in the first team before but they looked off the pace at times with their decisions.
“One or two have put in a good shift but others haven’t.”
“With their first goal, we’re trying to switch a 60-yard ball when it’s not on and the shot comes in and they get a tap in,” added McGreal.

“We addressed things at half-time but then within a minute, you’re looking for height and distance on your header and you don’t get it and it falls to their lad and they score.
