Did he score or provide an assist?

Just watched the highlights-Collin’s body language is poor

Absolutely dismal today. Only Hayden cane out with any credit.

I may be in the minority but Beech isn’t for me as manager. I’d get rid ASAP.

Bed wetting at its finest. Colchester were the best team I’ve seen at BP this season.

Colchester were nowhere near the best team. They were tidy but that’s it.

I'd agree Beech didn't exactly cover himself in glory with his tactics, team selection and substitutions today.

However, he's a (relatively speaking) young, inexperienced manager who has plenty of opportunity to learn from his mistakes.

It was a tough ask to transform the squad he was left with in the January transfer window and he's made a decent fist of it, in fairness.

Yes, it was pretty dismal today and very ugly on the eye. Colchester had a better afternoon than we did all over the park, sometimes it happens - that's football - it happened to Liverpool at Watford last week, for example.

Truth be told, we're not getting slapped around and bullied nearly as often as when Pressley was in charge and we have a decent core of players to build around in the summer. When your squad / team is in transition you will get afternoons like today occasionally.

We now have the opportunity to change the team around a touch for the Newport game, let's hope Beech learns his lessons and takes this opportunity.

I’ve just watched the highlights.

Colin has been very poor lately, I didn’t want him back really as he is just a lower average tier 4 keeper now, but let’s not forget early on in the season he saved us numerous times.

At least we’re not Stockport

An absolutely dire performance. The midfield lost the second ball time after time, which gave Colchester the lion's share of possession. We lacked physicality in all areas of the pitch. We hardly troubled their goalkeeper.

There was some timewasting by Colchester, but it was their own time which was wasted. If they'd got on with the game they could have scored more.

I disagree with criticism of the referee. I thought he had a good game. Even if he got a few decisions wrong, particularly with regard to play-acting, it didn't affected the result.

The standard of home games have got to improve next season. We can’t have another season of dire home displays if we want crowds to improve.

A mate of mine can’t attend all home games due to work. Today was his 7th home game of the season and he’s yet to see us score a goal.

I think we've definately made progress under beech but this shows how far we have to go. Plymouth, crewe, Colchester are a good level above us.

Interesting to hear Philips say the club possibly don’t want Watt back next year, not athletic enough

Not much to elaborate on really. He’s marginally better than Pressley and that’s about it. Signings have been average, tactics not great.

One home win in three and a half months and not many goals. Not very exciting at all.

I could be wrong mind!

Have to agree with Nobby here .

Their seems a belief Beech has kept us up, incorrect Stevenage have crashed. If we keep Pressley and didn’t win a point we’d be bottom by 3 points with a game in hand.

What’s a far better indicator is the gap to Morecambe, pre Beech 5 points, now 7 & the gap to the playoffs 7 to 19.


I really hope, we learn our lesson from
Giving crap managers another transfer window: Pressley & Kav. Before anyone comes with this their not his players crap, look at the effect Wheelans (last season) & Holloway have had, a good manager can manager crap players.

Both Pressley and Beech have had 17 games now. Pressley got 18 points and Beech 20 points.

You’ve got to give Beech a bit of leeway I suppose as he inherited Pressleys mess.

Watt has been taken off in the last two games, and we've totally lost the midfield both times, he may not be doing everything Beech wants of him, but he's the best we currently have. Sagaf is probably the only option we have but he needs games to get up to speed.

If Kelvin was fit he'd be making a big difference, so he's the type of player that needs to be a priority for next season.

Chat is that Sagaf doesn't train hard enough? He's more mobile than Watt, a better ballplayer than Mellish. Unless Beech has already decided 100% that he doesn't want Sagaf next year it might be time to give him a chance. We have Guy, maybe he will be better. Be a bummer if Sagaf went back down south and became a good player at Crawley or Colchester.

I get the feeling that all the midfield would look much better with a decent number 9 in front of them

In no way am I defending the clown that was Pressley, but there is a point there that Beech has had more money to spend, and he made eight new signings in the window.

Today showed how much we need a player like etuhu in that midfield. I think watt has been his best signing but imagine him etuhu in his prime and a devitt like player in midfield that’s how you push for the playoffs. Beech seems obsessed with how much players run but some players let the ball fo the work. Watt makes a lot of tackles and passes in that midfield but he’s got no one doing the dirty work aswell. Mellish is not a central midfielder.

If we.d shown some ambition and got Evatt instead of Beech and got the points that Barrow have in that time we.d be in the playoffs right now clearly a case of settling for second best and that's being very generous.

That was a 4-2 defeat though so in my book a three goal deficit is a bigger defeat than losing by two.

What's more telling is that in the home fixture last season we whipped them 4-0 on a freezing cold December day

It's obvious what we've done since then to go backwards - sherry dan pissed off, we didn't try to hang on to our best players, loanees or permanent, and we signed a manager who can chat shit for scotland but not manage a team

But what would be telling is what have Colchester changed since then and how can we copy that?

I think in 99% of people’s book a 3-0 is a bigger defeat than a 4-2.

One thing that wasn't very pleasant on Saturday was the one or two in the paddock who took the micky out of the Down Syndrome lad who was running round the pitch. You're old enough to know better.
