You were wrong. The phrase "out of your depth" springs to mind.

Today was every bit as bad as last week. Defenders who can't defend, midfielders passing sideways and backwards, and attackers who look like they've forgotten what their job is. In addition, we appear to have absolutely no pace whatsoever.

Did we really pay money for this manager?

Evans out.

Get your bedsheet out and tie him up in it and sling him in Bradshaw Brook.

Let's not waste any more time!

Looked better going forward but very shoddy at the back, time to dump Baptiste as he's garbage.

And Santos, surely Taft and Delaney would be the better option.

Report: Colchester United 2-0 Bolton Wanderers


A goal in each half from Colchester United ensured that Bolton Wanderers headed back up to the North West without any points from a game they didn’t deserve to lose.

Despite dominating possession and creating a plethora of chances, errors were punished decisively by Tom Eastman and Jevani Brown.

Head coach Ian Evatt made two changes from the side that played against Forest Green Rovers last weekend with Ali Crawford and Jak Hickman coming into the starting XI at the expense of Antoni Sarcevic and Reiss Greenidge, who both missed out through injury.

Eoin Doyle wore the captain’s armband as Wanderers took to the field at the Jobserve Community Stadium.

Wanderers were unlucky not to take the lead early on in the contest when Liam Gordon drilled over the bar after some good work by Jak Hickman over on the right find him. The build-up saw some calm, possession-based play.

At the other end, Tom Eastman screwed his effort wide of Billy Crellin’s right-hand post after he connected with Cohen Bramhall’s floated free-kick.

Noah Chilvers then fired over the bar from range after the ball broke to him on the right hand side.

Wanderers then pressed forward with Tom White finding Gethin Jones, whose left footed low curler went narrowly wide of Dean Gerken’s goal.

Nathan Delfouneso earned a corner when his shot was deflected behind after he danced and weaved his way into the box to carve open the opportunity.

The former Blackpool man was looking lively during the opening stages and again had an effort that went narrowly wide after he lost his marker to advance further down the field.

Ali Crawford hit the foot of the post after some good work down the left hand side by Jones found the Scot in space.

Crellin made a great save to keep out Kwame Poku after the midfielder was located by Jevani Brown. The big Wanderers keeper got down well to keep out the firm effort and had to make a second grab to keep out Courtney Senior who was lurking for the rebound.

Delfouneso’s glancing header from Crawford’s corner went agonisingly wide as Wanderers tried to capitalise on the chances their pressure was creating.

Jones pressed into the box and found Doyle who laid the ball off for Hickman, whose searching ball into the danger area evaded everybody.

The hosts took the lead just before the break when Eastman nodded in from close range after Wanderers failed to clear their lines from a corner.

Wanderers thought they had an equaliser five minutes after the restart when Alex Baptiste rose unmarked to head in Brandon Comley’s chipped pass, but the assistant’s flagged ruled out the effort for a narrow offside infringement.

The visitors’ dominance from the first half was on show in the second period, and again Evatt’s men were pressing to get an equaliser.

Hickman’s crosses and delivery were causing danger while Delfouneso was looking particularly hungry to get on the scoresheet and was unfortunate to see a right footer from the edge of the box curl behind for a goal kick.

A good ball from Hickman found Doyle on the edge of the box but the Irishman’s shot didn’t trouble Gerken who got down to smother the ball.

Colchester’s second came against the run of play after Brown lobbed Crellin who had run to the edge of his box.

Finlay Lockett, who scored in the under 18s 2-2 draw with Tranmere the previous Saturday, came on for the impressive Hickman with 14 minutes of the game remaining.

Brown almost doubled his tally and grabbed a third when his lob rebounded off Crellin’s cross bar after he had broke forward.

Jamie Mascoll was the next change for Wanderers when he came on for Delfouneso after 81 minutes.

Wanderers continued to look comfortable in possession but were unable to turn their dominance into goals and were ultimately made to pay for two defensive mistakes.

Crawford's free-kick at the death was tipped away by Gerken at full-stretch which summed up Wanderers' afternoon.


Colchester: Gerken, Welch-Hayes, Eastman, Smith, Bramall, Gambin (McLeaod), Chilvers, Poku (Harriott 67), Stevenson, Senior (Cowan-Hall 76), Brown.

Unused Subs: George, Scarlett, Sowunmi, Tovide.


Wanderers: Crellin, Jones, Baptiste, Almeida Santos, Gordon, Hickman (Lockett 76), White, Comley, Crawford, Delfouneso (Mascoll 81), Doyle.

Unused Subs: Alexander, Brockbank, Taft, Tutte, Darcy.

A lot of huffing and puffing, loads of possession, no end product and shoddy defending - perhaps because the system leaves players too far up the pitch to track back and defend.

Nat nailed the score and the French word for thing is spelt "chose" with an "e" and pronounced shoze.

I can break wind with the best of them - especially during the vegetarian years - but I've yet to find someone daft enough to pay me to do it.

He reckons we dominated the game with our speed and pace, but it's just not going for us at the moment.

I think I must have been watching a different game.

 I thought we lost 2-0 and totally lacked in every department.

Yes he was watching a different game on his Ipad apparently.

We played better that is correct - but could have been down 2-0 before we had a shot on target. And another 2 down after the break.
We did dominate in passing backwards and sideways though.

If we were creating chance after chance and couldn't get the ball over the line - then ok that happens - but that wasn't the case. On the bright side if we can get another 10 to 20% improvement this weekend should get the job done.

It was absolutely vital that we got off to a good start this season. One thing we can at least be thankful for is that the home matches will be behind closed doors because the booing and abuse would have already started.

Personally I don't blame anybody for being pissed off after only two matches necessarily, but all I've read from Bolton fans on the internet before the season started was about what an amazing guy he sounds and how much sense he makes. I just don't get why people come out with all that bollocks, when they must know full well from experience alone that if we lose the first few matches they'll just start saying the complete opposite.
