Undone today by a team that hoofed the ball up the pitch and run after it, they used the bobbles to their advantage. They dived, they time wasted, the pushed and they dragged a good footballing side down to their level.

A while since I have seen them play, but a very poor side won against a team that could not put 3 passes together.

A case of the best team lost, I must say I was very disapointed at how poor the football was at Hx today. They really have fallen a long way, I am glad we do not have to watch that type of football every week!!

Naah not just you, it seems they have become a win at all cost side, it was funny when the Canvey fans were singing at the home support "your supposed to be at home" they did not respond!

I cant understand it at this level, nick a dodgy clearly off side goal (watch the clip) after five minutes and then ruin everyones entertainment, why would you pay to watch that.

I suppose that is why we get so many of them come to watch us each week!

If I was giving Batchy advise it would be keep trying to play football like you are, I would rather watch a team play their way through the season in mid table than get to the play offs like its seems Hx might by hoofing, diving, time wasting and pushing!

I am not surprised at McBrides approach, thats his style "no sport, just win" but how do their supporters cough

I agree that Hornchurch were not what I would consider to be a good side. However, in the first half they could have scored three, where as we didn't really have a shot. It's all well and good being a better side, but it's goals that win matches.

We played well enough and showed good commitment and determination, but we're just not testing the opposition keeper enough at the moment. Long balls up to Jay & Lucky won't win us game. The one time that a decent ball was put through to Lucky, he turned brilliantly and drove in, but was denied by the keeper.

I never like to see us lose, but at least our lads put the effort it, so I can't knock them for that.

i think yesterday we just didnt look up to the task and they looked up for it just a bit more, looked a bit more concentrated at the back.

we undoubtably worked very hard and we usually always do, and could have meritted a goal with our effort, but effort sometimes dosent pay off if you dont show the capibilty to create the chances, and other than that one from lucky i dont remember too many chances for us

positives to be taken tho, mel was brilliant and made some great saves...again and we did look very committed in the second half, just lacked the creative and finishing touch when it was need the most.

thats what i think anyways

no doubt see you urchins next year to give you another go

Mel was very good again. Thought Tarks had a good game in defence and did his best to help the attack.

it says on the website that Hornchurch hit the bar from the free kick Green scored from. It was infact a superb save from Mel.

I've said on my match report that Mel turned the ball on to the woodwork.
