Chorley 1-0 up.

Keep an eye on bobby Duncan for derby...


Hope Nige doesn't listen to you ;)

Vale beating Grimsby.

I'm guessing there'll be plenty of goals in this match.

Because the manager was out of his depth and didn’t know how to use him. Then true to form started picking arguments with him.

I think you need to sort of build the team around a Jorge Grant, in a attacking sense anyway, problem was his best mate Tyler Walker was our best attacking player, and the result was Grant ending up a bit of a passenger.

He settled in better at Lincoln than with us.

It was almost as if he thought he was better than us.

Grant was abysmal for us, a complete show pony and waste of a big loan wage. Walker, on the other hand, had a great season and flourished under the attacking style of play. I too watched the Lincoln game and Grant did virtually nothing apart from put a penalty wide and make a late challenge for which he should have been booked. I have no idea what Musings was watching :lol:

Halford sent off for Southend but they’re still 1-0 up against barrow.

I'd now say Grimsby are in the worst place in the league. 1pt above bottom having played 2 more games. Worst GD. Poor form.

Cambridge win to keep Harrogate beneath us. Port vale beating Grimsby put Vale above us and Grimsby into the bottom two. They’re doomed.

His manager seemed pretty pleased with him after, even despite the missed pen.

Just the 8 key passes in the game, not good enough.

Grimsby are a club in turmoil with an owner who is a Conservative Councillor who was proposing to sell shares to a fraudster who went to prison for swindling elderly people.

The only hope is if Fenty sells the club to the Tom Shutes consortium as soon as possible. Once the January transfer window has closed then they will really be struggling.

8 key passes :lol: He barely touched the ball in the first half, as didn't Lincoln and his only contribution, as I said, was the missed penalty. I think you need to lay off xG for a while ;)

Are you sure you were watching the right game Rob? He put Howarth through on goal in the first half. Not bad for barely touching the ball.

He took the corner for the goal, put a cross on a plate for Johnson too.

It was a poor corner and ended up an own goal. They even said on commentary he'd not been involved much in the 1st half. Clearly you're a fan of his, can't stand him myself :lol:

Southend United 1 Barrow 0 (HT: 1-0)
Possession: 32:68%

A crucial fourth consecutive home win for Southend although Barrow played the better football and deserved at least a point. Barrow are the biggest under achievers in League 2 based on the xG tables. The winning goal was scored in the 3rd minute by debutant Recco Hackett-Taylor (on loan from Portsmouth) who cut inside from the right and curled a left shot into the corner of the net from the edge of the area. Lewis Hardcastle should have stopped him getting the shot in.

Mr Jolley's Barrow then dominated the rest of the game but did not take their chances or make the most of playing against 10 men. Greg Halford was sent off for a second yellow card after 52 minutes Luke James had a shot tipped over the bar by Mark Oxley after catching James Olayinka in possession. Matty Platt had a header at the back post blocked by White from a corner. Barrow claimed it was handball. James Kay then dribbled into the area from a short corner and had a shot blocked. Scott Quigley put a dangerous cross across the goal. He then played a great ball to James Kay whose shot was saved again by Oxley. Chris Taylor shot wide. Dior Angus headed over the bar from a Brough cross; and then headed straight at Oxley. Matty Platt also headed straight at the keeper.

It was an entertaining game and Southend had chances to add to their lead as Barrow pushed forward looking for the equaliser. Josh Dixon made a good save from Elvis Bwomono after a great ball by Timothy Dieng. Dixon saved again from Demetriou from a cleared corner. James Olayinka was clean through after another good ball from Dieng. The ball fell to Simeon Akinola and he blasted over. However Southend parked the bus after Halford was sent off and tried to waste time as much as possible. There were 7 minutes of injury time.

Commentary was provided by BBC Radio Essex. Paul Clark, former Southend manager and player, was a good honest pundit who kept pointing out the Southend timewasting and who made some interesting points.

Josh Kay, Matty Platt and Scott Quigley are quality players for Barrow. It will be interesting to see if they attract any interest in the transfer window especially from Ian Evatt. It will also be interesting to see if Barrow stick to their footballing principles and keep trying to play out from the back.

Southend MOM: Timothy Dieng and Mark Oxley

Barrow MOM: Josh Kay and Matty Platt
