Looking now 2-1. Don't know but sounds as if we were miles from performances we have shown. But not sure if tactical decisions or set up was right, don't know if we set up not to loose rather than go for the win. Dangerous thing to do it so as just proven.

Been listening to it on radio, sounds like we’ve been absolutely shit. Can’t remember a single chance. Bitterly disappointed, but definitely not surprised.

Kanu sounds useless.

Starting to think we’re in a ‘false position’. We’re nowhere near the likes of Chesterfield, Wrexham, Notts County etc - they’ve demolished their lowly opponents, and we’ve lost to bottom of the league.

Kneejerk much?
Was anyone expecting us to be at the level of Wrexham, Notts County and Wrexham this season?

When we start playing well and attendances start to climb and we take numbers away from home we play like shit, Ebbsfleet few years back, wealdstone last season. Now lost to team bottom of league table as mentioned above, not a suprise.

Totally not, but did not see us losing 3-1 to team bottom of league, whose confidence must of been low, there supporters not happy. Only just reached a 1000 home supporters with us taking over 250. If things are not working out like today not having another striker is going to hurt us.

Horrible result.

Need to sort the midfield out. Smith, Phillips and Flanagan all looked unfit last week.

Sounds like Kanu might not instantly replace EMC. Losing your best player will upset any team.

Southend will be a tough opposition next Saturday.

Totally.

We have only played 1 top 6 side who took us apart. Anything above the lower half is a major achievement for us when you consider the crap we had to put up with past couple of seasons.

Pay peanuts and you get a group of monkeys who can't defend or never will be able to under Dirty Don Brennan.

What a load of shite today. Hope things pick up and quickly otherwise the big hitters are going to be uncatchable. Still, mid table is a huge achievement on last season. Used to disappointment with no investment. Our luck was never going to last.

A terrible result on paper, but Aldershot were always going to produce a reaction after losing at home to Maidstone.

Early days yet but I hope Peterborough have not done a number on us again.

Bad result and performance but so so reactionary from a large part of our fan base. A few good results doesn’t instantly mean we’re up there with the big boys of the division. Results like this were bound to happen at some point, most important thing is bouncing back next game

The reactions on here are utterly ridiculous considering the last couple seasons. Awful performance granted, but it’s not the end of the world

Unacceptably awful from start to finish. I thought this team might get outplayed at times but did not expect to see it outrun and outbattled like it was today.

Credit to Walker, who kept us in it for a lot longer than we deserved, Pritchard, who did his best to make up for his teammates, and Okimo, who didn’t put a foot wrong (Moussa was decent too, to be fair), but everybody else was poor.

That said, a lot of the problems were tactical. Without RDH we have no link between the midfield three and the front three. The gap between Gorman/Pritchard/Smith and Kabamba was about 40 yards for most of the game and yet DB did nothing to change things tactically apart from haul off Hall, who was one of our better players in the first half. Without any creative, attacking midfielders linking up the play, our only threat is down the wings and that makes us SO easy to defend against - double up on our wingers or push your full-backs on like Aldershot did today and we have nothing to offer except the 90 minutes of aimless hoofs and pointless, overhit punts into the channels that we saw today. The obvious thing to do would have been to go two up top and try to play through the middle more but of course we are the only team in the league (any league?) that has managed to go into the season with only one striker on our books, which, as we all knew would be the case, means we have no Plan B when Plan A isn’t working.

Still, if you are going to play with three defensive midfielders, you might at least expect to dominate possession but the midfield was second to everything all afternoon. Today is a good assessment of where we are without EMC, a back-up attacking midfielder or a second striker. Frankly it’s been coming, too - our performances have been getting worse and today and we were well beaten.

He's been going to Barnet FC for decades. Something's happened

Agree our performances have been declining.

Funny that Brennan rather cockily stated our Eastleigh win was the worst performance so far - wonder what his assessment will be this time…

In any event, what’s he done about it other than make two useless signings, none of whom are strikers and one of whom (Revan) was apparently at fault for their second?

RDH, Collinge and EMC huge absentees.
