Post-Match Thread and Ratings Walsall 5 Southend United 2

Jan 19, 2007
Kirchberg in Tirol, Austria

Just got in, shocked at what I have seen today. A total shambles, here's my view anyway:

Mildenhall- 4: Hopefully will see Joycey in for Borient on Tues.
Francis- 5: Terrible today, couldn't pass and was at fault for their first with a pathetic clearance. Usually good though so hopefully an off day.
Clarke- 6: Lost more headers than usual today against Ibhere and simply cannot play with Barrett
Barrett- 6: Same as above, can't fault his effort though
Harding- 8: Our best player, composed and collected while everything else was falling apart
Betsy- 6: One decent run and a shot against the bar is all he's done today. Hasn't set the world alight since joining, why oh why did he stay on and Kanu come off.
Sawyer- 7: Some ok passing and like's to get stuck in, but gave the ball away too many times in dangerous areas
Grant- 6: Did a defensive midfielder job, nothing special, few errors
Kanu- 8: Quality goal and really good performance, why he was taken off I will never know. Maybe Tilly's saving him for the big game in the JPT...
Revell - 5: Was non-existent in a poor team. Failed to win headers or link up with play. Walker all day for me.
Barney- 7: Doesn't stop trying, glad he got a goal but had a couple of decent chances with his head and should have done better.

Subs: Walker- 7: We looked marginally better when he came on, added much needed pace up front and was very unselfish with the goal. Should partner Barney upfront.
Scannell- 6: Is probably better than betsy but didn't do alot after coming on

A really poor performance today, changes need to be made starting with the goalkeeper, signing a tall centre back and get someone else in the middle of the park. Very worrying after today let's hope thing's improve ASAP otherwise thing's are looking bleak.
