Dunne: Planning ahead

Dunne: Planning ahead

The U's, who have now lost their last seven games, made a disastrous start when defender Mark Connolly gave Crawley a fourth-minute lead and late strikes by Billy Clarke and Nicky Adams gave the Red Devils their first victory in four games.

Dunne said: "We let in sloppy goals and it's been systematic over the season.

"It was a bad defeat, but it was not a 3-0 game. Unfortunately we have started the year how we ended it and it was not what we wanted."

Colchester have only scored three goals during their losing run while conceding 18 and Dunne believes that some of the problems that are being created are "avoidable".

He added: "We have got to start better and we worked at it all week. Having said that, after 10 minutes, we controlled the rest of the first half, but things are not breaking for us at the moment.

"We need to keep pushing. We did a lot of good things and over the course of the transfer window we will try to bring in a couple of players. We need to do it."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
