Nothing short of disgraceful from the second it kicked off. Can only assume the players thought all they had to do was turn up to win.  An absolute embarrassment. Time to axe Crawford too. I

Bad day at the office, move on and figure out how to replace Tutte. 

What today tells us is that our progress from being a basket case to being a solid football league club again is not going to be linear. Thank god for those four league wins that took us away from the

In January, Crellin, Hickman, Greenidge, Gordon, Comley and White need firing off and replaced with better versions. Assuming Faal stays out on loan, needs a striker too

They are the ones I would clear out if we get the chance

Don’t think Hickman has done anything wrong myself 

If he's any worse than Kioso at defending, he might as well retire. Kioso was brutally exposed today.

We defended terrible today; Baptiste and Santos had shockers but if they get back on their game for next week we can get the bandwagon rolling again

Santos was shite.

Baptiste & Delaney were left exposed by the wing backs being nowhere to be seen.

It's one game, though.

Hopefully they'll not be as over confident for the next game.

I think White's the best option for the Tutte role though until Tutte's fit again or we sign some mon in January.

I couldn't watch it all today so was on and off iPlayer. Weirdly whenever I got to watch it for a couple of minutes we looked the better side?

Having said that must have managed to watch about 15 out if the 90.

We were the better side apart from when they were the better side.

Agree, but it seems that IE isn't so fond, so a waste of a squad place. May as well get rid.

Does Mascoll need adding to the list too?

Still think we need a strong, physical presence in midfield at times. Need to be able to mix it as well as pass it.

Strangely enough, we did look the better side for most of the game. Going forward anyway.

What today tells us is that our progress from being a basket case to being a solid football league club again is not going to be linear. Thank god for those four league wins that took us away from the bottom end of the table. But we aren't going to suddenly storm the division an there are still big flaws. 

No fans in the stadium and the general situation in the world adds to the bizarre feel of things just now. I'm beginning to become of the mind that we use this season to get on some kind of an even keel again and then push on again next year with fans in the ground. 

In the context of 20/21 season we aren't the first to be involved in a weird result. VIlla 7 Liverpool 2; United 1 Spurs 6; City 2 Leicester 5 and others. 

It's getting a bit cliched to say this now but its Saturday afternoon and we have a football club to talk about. I might not be so magnanimous if we fuck it up v the bindippers in a fortnight.

Is that entirely his fault?

Didn't see it, but should other centre half be covering, or should he stay deeper, and rely on midfield to provide attacking threat?

Or more evidence of missing Tutte?

At times, he seems to be neither here nor there, and wonder if that's something the manager/captain need to sort.

Fair shout, that. Be soon forgotten if we go on another good run soon enough.

Kioso is a bit like Santos for me, when not on his game, he’s very poor. Luton have had him out 2 seasons running now getting the mistakes out of him then seeing if he’s any good. He’s a young lad and think he’ll be reasonable L1 in time but no better.

Hickman is just meh, a bit like White. Not particularly bad at anything, but not good at anything either

Today was just like Orient again we had 67% of the ball today yet they had 11 shots on Target, they just drew us out and went down the channels. We have no plan B. Santos is either good or shit no middle ground thats why he is not playing higher.

Everyones got the same 7/8 they want to get rid in January.........lets be honest who would have them.

Why no Taft i  on the bench???

The kid making his debut did ok .His passing & forward play was positive however definitely not a defensive midfielder.

Would’nt fault him for any of the goals but Tutte does do a lot of good defensive work .Thomason was caught between the lines a few times .
Nevertheless think he has something about him.
