Pretty hacked off with last night to be honest and I didn’t even have to suffer through it. I was tied up in client meetings the whole day, so I dipped in and out of Twitter and was really lifted to see us take an early lead. What happened afterwards sounded pretty shambolic.
For the most part Powell is being given the time that the new owners had wished for. Parky would have been lynched from the west stand by now.
There is no disguising that we are in a mess, things haven’t improved even with BWP’s five goals in seven games and the only other chink of light has been the introduction of Carl Jenkinson. The rest have been pony.
Powell continues to try to change the way we play but the players are either not responding, don’t understand their roles or are simply not good enough. Powell has said that he hopes to add to the squad this week which is good news but we deserve better from the likes of Wright-Phillips, Eccleston, Wagstaff, Read, Jackson, Anyinsah, Benson, Racon, Semedo, Dailly and Elliott.

CA fact: Not since the desperate days of Les Reed have we lost four games in a row. December 2006.
