Having looked at our next four fixtures:
Doncaster - H
Leyton Orient - H
Stockport - A
Tranmere - A
All tough, certainly tougher than the run of fixtures we’ve had so far.
If we come out of that Tranmere game still in the top 10, then I’ll maybe consider my future in this thread.
Clinging on to the top 10 at the moment after back to back defeats. Tranmere away on Saturday, we’ll see if we are still in the top 10 come full time. Or will we be looking over our shoulders after being found out when faced with half decent opposition as I expected?
Nah, lose to us beat the Poolies. You know it makes sense.just as long as we win our next 2 league games we should be fine at least for a few months.... Crawley (A) and Hartlepool (H)
We drew with them begining of Sep (a), They equalised in stoppage time.Colchester must have got much worse over the last couple of months as they didn’t look anywhere near as bad as people are describing when we held them to a 1-1 draw at their place in August.
Really like the bold/foolish statement at this stage of the season.Relegation fodder matches for us so far:
Col Ewe: Absolutely battered them 3-1. Their goal an injury time consolation. Doomed.
Pools: Madcap 4-2 in which we should have plundered 7 or 8. Plenty of guts, zero quality.
Rochdale: 1-0. 90 minutes of profligate dominance where we should have been out of sight. Dale repaid the favour by missing an injury time penalty. Should stop up.
Gillingham: 2-0. Can defend. Can’t attack. Could sleepwalk to the drop.
Creepy: Tight 1-0. Don’t think they had a shot. Will probably go bust before they go down.
Newport: 1-2. They were good for 3 minutes and scored 2 goals. Keeper had a blinder. Will be granted asylum for at least another year. Deportation to the Rwandan league in the very capable hands of Suella Braverman their biggest worry.
Sutton, Crewe, Wombles, Stockport: Yet to play any of these lower mid-table no-marks. Unlikely to be dragged into the scrap.
BELEAGUERED Carlisle: 3-2. Possibly the worst side I have ever seen. Tried to cheat by paying the ref to give us all of the decisions because they know we can’t play against 10 men. Nailed-on to join Colchester through the trapdoor.
