Colchester United 2 Charlton Athletic 1
A new low but believe me under these three executioners lows worse than this are coming. And Richard Murray should not escape either. Honestly Richard show some humility.
Fraeye put out a team to win, on paper it was decent, but you win nothing in life without having any dignity or balls. For all that Fraeye is an half-arsed clown, those representing our great club today should have a good look at themselves in the mirror tonight.
No one came out of the game with any credit. No one except Pope that is, who kept the score down to two in the first half. One of the goals obviously coming just before half-time, this after we get another injury. It’s like Groundhog Day.
Cousins was injured, we were already being overrun in midfield, Interim brings Vetokele on, a striker. At half-time, 2-0 down, Interim brings on another centre-half for winger Ceballos. Team tactics being decided by one of those plastic twirly things with an arrow. Your turn Jason, have a spin.
Ceballos rapidly becoming the most comedic thing to come out of Barcelona since Manuel (sorry I nicked that off Twitter). Makienok an embarrassment, Sarr the new Ali Dia, Vaz Te uninterested, Johnson still celebrating winning the lottery.
The after match interview with Interim, so far out of his depth that he is walking on the ocean floor, was cringeworthy. Tough questions met with absolute cobblers referring to the board as if someone sat on it cares and gives a sh*t. A board let us remind ourselves of a bloke who hasn’t seen us play since October, the year before last, and thinks winning is not important. A woman more hated than Margaret Thatcher by the miners and a bloke seeping into dementia.
The funniest thing was this was not even a Cup shock, even though Colchester have the worst defence in all four divisions and until today had lost 9 of their last 10 games and won 1 in 15. And lost their best player to his parent club last week.
If us being expected to win was funny, so was Morgan Fox being captain today after Cousins went off. No disrespect Morgan, but I’ll add that one to the list of managerial distinctions under Karel Fraeye. Interim with now a record so bad, that only Les Reed’s 6 week spell in 2006 was worse. But to be fair Reed did play Liverpool and Spurs during his tenure.
Over 1,800 Addicks at the game. If they were in a restaurant they would have left after the first course.
Rick Everitt has said that we, the fans, will make the club unmanageable. They don’t need our help, they are doing a fine job by themselves.
FA Cup show watch: Even Bolton couldn’t help us out equalizing late at Eastleigh, Brentford lost to high flying Walsall, Pompey grabbed a great 2-2 draw at Ipswich, Preston lost at Peterborough and Bristol City came within seconds of winning at West Brom.
