A crisis is a blind man at an Ava Addams peep show, I don't believe we've reached the extent of panic or an international incident. It's just a lame performance as mentioned, thankfully this time they've been few and far between but understand we're still at a very early stage of a season.

Lose the next four of five games and by all means get frantic but until then prepared to allow it time to rectify itself. Evidently mistakes have been made just recent, be it team formation, complacency or the wrong attitude but it's up the players and staff to realize this and make good for subsequent games out there. Crisis No. Glitch, minor halt of progress, much nearer the truth on this issue.

That’s two in a row........ if it gets to five, then agreed, it’ll be a definite crisis. Zero points from Accrington & a home match to Rotherham isn’t acceptable. And having seen some highlights, I understand why some would see a crisis on the horizon. I’m not saying there is a crisis; saying, on viewing, I can understand why others would. Especially the more pessimistic of fans.

A win at Southend will help, (even a scrappy 1-0) ..., but really thumping Southend would help restore some confidence that’s no doubt been lost. But as said, after seeing some highlights, no idea where the goals in that thumping would come from.

Problem in my house, (computer retard so no idea how to change settings) , but everything seems linked through google mail. So every search seems to pop up in a menu bar on all devices. . VW Golf stuff (stepson) , mountain bike stuff (other stepson) education stuff to do with work (wife) and now Ava Addams for me.

Can just hear the conversation tonight as we eat dinner....... Wife: “Ava Addams eh? Why?”
“It’s Saints fault.”

I don't disagree, but you most be the must stoically optimistic person I know, and award deservingly persistent to go with it!

There's a lot of hard work to be done ahead and some tough and important games, they'll be the real litmus test, giving credit for the Southend match is a bit like like Ronnie O'Sullivan beating me at snooker and declaring himself back to his very best!

He was certainly the most exciting to watch.

I’m starting to wonder if PL is postponing games to keep a little bit of pressure on the players....ie this Saturday we will probably drop off top spot, which makes Town have more urgency in their next game? Compare this to being top of the pile with maybe a few points advantage and that misplaced feeling that things are all cosy.... we lose our edge slightly.

We go to Rochdale on Tuesday quite likeLy NEEDING to win. 👍
