Two wins and two clean sheets. Can’t ask for much more than that from a week really.

Sets it up nicely for a winnable home game. Honestly all our home games look winnable, it’s the remaining away games that look a bit dodgy on paper, especially the ones coming after Barrow.

There has to be recognition of what a God awful side Southend are. They're pretty much the perfect team to play when you're on the back of a stinking run, lumbering in defence and entirely toothless upfront.

They were playing long ball as well, but to a lower standard than the garbage we play.

Zanzala looks a different player when he remains on his feet and refrains from throwing himself on the ground at every opportunity to try and win free-kicks.

In absolute honesty, our performance was way below acceptable standard. We played one and a half pieces of proper football all game and got two goals for the privilege. It should be a lesson to us, as the second half against Bradford should've been a lesson to us. The path to genuine success is found by passing the ball, not lumping it.

Expect a return to the hoof on Tuesday, then. Beech will look and the mirror and see Jürgen Klopp again and his happy clappers will feel all warm now sticking with their man has proved the best course...

Again, typical happy clapper mentality.

The season is not just about one or two games, and winning those games against low quality opposition without playing especially well.

The quality of performance absolutely matters as it will determine whether you're successful in the long term.

Piglet... I get that there needs to be caution sometimes ... and we all need a sense of pessimism to keep us grounded... but your negative mindset is constant.....can you say anything positive?

If Beech is going to prove us wrong, it’s gotta be three points today. Free match pass number two (thank you, EFL Rewards) is the only reason I’m watching this one, hopefully I’ll see something that makes me spend money on further passes...


See you in a couple of months' time when you win your next free match pass.


You really couldn’t make this up...

Whether it’s for tomorrow or Saturday will depend on when the code arrives!

I rarely win anything, yet I can’t seem to stop winning these passes!

Hopefully skybet or EFL rewards are compensating the club for these freebies.

I’ve checked in to probably about 50+ games this season on that app, including 3 today. Haven’t won a single thing yet. I get “unlucky” every time.

I am currently checking out our opposition by listening to the Barrow game on BBCRC.

Nearly half time, getting beat 1-0 honestly should be 3-0 as a goal disallowed and a freak miss on the goal line has saved them.

Apart from the obvious threat that we know about in Jamie Devitt they are very nervy - a bit like we go when teams score against us.

Try and not give away silly free kicks around the area and we should be okay for at least a point I reckon, I still think that there is definitely more about Barrow than say Southend or Crawley.

And Brough went off injured on 43 minutes so might be doubtful for Saturday.

Finished 1-1 they were lucky there to get one at the end, pleased for them as it could be important come the end of the season.

Terrible game mind, was a bit like when we played Colchester, very little quality.

Again, their manager is a breath of fresh air - said after the game that they were 1-0 down at half time and they didn't play well but that was my fault he said as to how he set them up - you rarely hear a manager admit a mistake.

Really want them to stay up, so we can have a couple of Cumbrian derbies next season with (hopefully) decent numbers in attendance.

I see that Oldham totally humped Crawley at home today, had something like 27 shots and won 1-4.

Crawley really are a disgrace and are just a fourth division media circus.

The sort of club who would raffle the chance to play the last five minutes of a game and a photoshoot with the Wright brothers to the highest bidder.

That's three steps up on Beech.

1, Recognizing poor performance.

2, Owning a mistake.

3, Being able to fix it during a match.

Honesty and competence, revolutionary stuff.

His Wiki page makes for an interesting read.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rob_Kelly

Definitely comes with a great deal of experience and what is impressive is that a lot of it is modern - David Dunn certainly wasn't daft bringing him in.

You only have to observe the results after taking over the reigns from two different managers to see his impact.

Probably only doing it because he enjoys it mind you, decent pension plan in place, he can be relaxed and say it how he sees it whereas Beech is more like at a fledgling stage of his carer where he still needs the money so he sometimes sees things a different way and loses his rag, this is my theory anyhow.

(Before anyone says what does money matter in this, two blokes work in the same factory, one owns his house outright and one has a mortgage - both are to be made redundant and are both are down about it but which one is more stressed about the situation?)

Good fit for Barrow 'if' they can get him to take the job, my fear if I was a Barrow fan would be after reading that Wiki article it sounds like if Kelly gets a whistle from Uwe Rosler then he will be off like a shot ' Oy Rob, I have got this new gig for us in Dubai, the footballs shite and there's nee peeve but the moneys good'.
