    The poor pitch has always been mainly an excuse not a reason.

    Is this the most entertaining team we've seen?

    The answer is of course, currently, no. The sad thing is that despite the worrying dip in form we are currently no worse than most L2 sides either. Of course, other teams have also had injuries, suspensions, rotation, awful pitches, etc. And the poor positioning, slapdash ball control...

    Matt Taylor - 2 Years As ECFC Manager...

    Hmm, maybe. Aske me again when the fans are back and we see what level attendances settle down at.

    I imagine that's because they have not updated for the postponed game. The website is surely not the definitive record. Can't belive he will be available tomorrow.

    Taylor has rightly been praised in earlier times for being upfront and uncomplicated, but this can become tactless and and lacking understanding. As our American cousins would say. "the buck stops here" Wrong selection Wrong formation Wrong tactics Wrong substitutes are not the players' fault

    No-one. Hartridge pick of a poor bunch. Seymour OK while he was on. Collins and Taylor missing in action.

    Yes. He and others at the Club were inordinately proud of us winning the Fair Play award. It's a nice thing to have, but I'd swap it for promotion. Although to be fair we were cheated out of it one year, when it was given to Bristol Rovers who had a worse disciplinary record than us but...

    I have been saying this for several seasons. Not cheating like Lincoln and Wycombe, but better at influencing the officials to make the right decisions and managing the game.

    Anyone can beat anyone in this league. The least complacent teams with the fewest injuries and fewest mistakes will probably prevail. Let's hope we are one of the three, though it's germane that we have the most draws in the top half of the table. Need to turn draws into wins by cutting down...

    Indeed. Tonight (for one night only, as the saying goes) I'm a fan of Walsall and Southend.
