I can't disagree with anything said here. It is simply staggering that a club can produce a performance to rank with the best one week and sink to the depths the next.
In desperately trying to cling to some excuses and mitigating factors:
1. The rutted uneven long grass did not suit flowing football, though several players may well have been as poor on a perfect pitch today.
2.The FA Cup tie next weekend is so important to the club, that it is understandable for the management to give games today to players who may not have appeared regularly recently. However, in the circumstances this had no positive effect.
3. Alfie Young, so impressive recently, was unavailable.
4. 2 years ago, in one of the club's best ever seasons, we produced a dreadful performance at Enfield losing one nil but never threatening in the entire match. Enfield away is not a happy hunting ground!
I am sure that we will bounce back, but if nothing else, today did reinforce the fact that whilst we do have a very strong squad in most departments, the central defensive positions do need reinforcing.
