With no money to spend and his squad under contract, it could present a great opportunity for the youngsters at St James Park.

One of those, 17-year-old second-year scholar Matt Jay was handed his full debut against the Shrimpers and Tisdale was delighted with his performance.

"We can't make signings, that is not something we are going to do, I need to look at players making strides within the squad," he said.

"I made a decision to play Matt Jay because I think he deserved to play and he was wonderful. I thought he was our best player in the first half. He got his selection off the back of his performances in training and Under-21 games and he did extremely well."

First-half goals from Cauley Woodrow and Kevan Hurst did the damage for promotion rivals Southend as they inflicted a third successive league defeat on the Grecians.

Tisdale added: "We were dreadful in the first half. We were 2-0 down and the players gave it a go, but that's not what we want to be doing every week.

"I think we are at a point now where we have just lost three league games in succession and we need an assessment of how we are playing, how the players are performing individually and maybe it is time I need to have a look at things."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
