    True.True. But do we?

    Momentum Is Building

    All this Momentum building will make us very strong on the left...

    Sean Clare Signing for

    Would have rather he'd stayed but he left . So good luck to him and all that but tbh I don't give a monkeys about him because he ain't here and I give my unwavering support/opprobrium for those players that are...

    Having Slept on it...

    "Ineffective" doesn't come close to doing it justice. I have to say i have no idea whether we are playing 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3 (it looked like 4-4-2 at the end with Atdhe and Fletch up top) but if it is 4-2-3-1 then having a 2 of Pelopessy and Bannan with Reach the "free" role in the 3 is imo asking for trouble (as Stoke proved for 20 minutes yesterday)

    Matt Penney

    Bit harsh saying the goal was his fault. Yes Ince did him but that was 5 yards inside their half and with us having at least 6 or 7 players behind the ball at that point and no immediate danger. Sure, that started off their move but it was a collective failure ultimately with them passing the ball straight through our midfield and then passing it straight between our centre backs who were all over the shop. Agree that he looks comfortable with the ball in front of him (and its definitely early days re whether he will cut it or not) but I liked the way he kept at it and Ince was very quiet second half (perhaps because they had spotted Palmer as a weaker link... )

    Benik Afobe

    He is a nob. I would have scored the two he got today. Not good enough for the prem albeit a decent striker if you create enough chances for him. Basically he had one decent year at Wolves. Would rather have Joao. If we created for Joao half of what Afobe had at Wolves and now Stoke he would easily outscore Afobe...

    Not true. He called him a black b****** then kicked him in the knackers before he left...

    Stoke City V Joao

    Was excellent today. Don't think he got tackled once and they couldn't get it off him but we need to get the ball to him in the final third or in the box not have him pick it up so deep. In that first half it was basically Bannan and Joao against eleven.

    Stoke were quite good

    They have on paper the strongest squad in the division. Pace power and decent play-makers. Shame they have an utter *** as a manager. Why they didn't just sit one of their players on Bannan in the second half I have no idea - would have cut off our entire attacking outlet.

    Barry Bannan Free Kick - MAGIC!

    Quality goal. i was screaming that they should give it to Penney
  11. I'm an Essex Owl

    Is it just me

    Not his best game for us. Thought he was pretty poor in the first half tbh (albeit against a very strong premier league experienced midfield). Their movement first 20 minutes was top class but he didnt protect our back four very well. They passed it through us at least 3 or 4 times. Was awkward and slow in possession as well. But I thought he improved in the second half and out in some decent tackles (even if the ref seemed to have a vendetta against him). Not sure Jos does want him to just give the ball to Bannan all the time if Jos's after match comments are anything to go by.

    Matt Penney

    Tough start for him today against an experienced and high class player (who has regularly been transferred for over £10 million. Was excellent in the second half and it took a top clas save to dent him a goal. Very encouraging performance overall.
  13. So frustrating. Really really hope he can recover but looking less likely all the time. One of our best (especially when he learnt how to score!) and most reliable players over the last 5 years...
  14. We were second best for most of the game but still created the best chances and if Rashford could finish (and if the ref wasn't so completely incompetent) we would have won 4-2. For all of their lovely possession they didn't create much and their second goal was a gift. that was a 1 out of 10 refereeing performance. That yellow card for Stones though

    This makes perfect sense and its difficult to argue against but how would the rest of us react to the constant provocation kicking and niggling he faces (usually with some utterly incompetent official - whose main job should be to protect the spirit of the game - ignoring or missing it). I am sure most of us would react at some point...
