Ossie Ardiles Tweets watching Colchester v Spurs

Colchester United 1 Tottenham Hotspur 4

A comfortable victory says the scoreline but you could argue we made it harder than it needed to be. The job was done however and former Argentinian midfield maestro Ossie Ardiles was Tweeting during the game.

So far so good. If anything a touch too easy.Should be 2-0 or or two loose balls in midfield to correct.

Unfortunately, most of those problems were from Carroll aimlessly passing sideways to nobody in particular or playing Eriksen into trouble just outside our box. It is not down to skill but mental approach. Thinking it's too easy so not playing with 100% concentration and determination, switching on and off when the ball comes near, is a dangerous approach. His display wasn't good enough in the first half.

Colchester 0-1 Spurs HT: Shots: 3-15 On Target: 0-4 Fouls: 0-3 Possession: 33%-67% Corners: 2-3

Now 2nd half: Need the second goal and then relax. COYS

Colchester came into the game in the second half, they gave us less time on the ball and we kept giving it away. We won and scored four, which rather flattered our poor finishing. Far too many shots were blasted over the bar. Eriksen should never have missed the target after 25 minutes, we seemed to be having one of ou lazy days in front of goal.

They could easily have scored after a howler at the back and we could have been under real pressure, all brought on ourselves. A lucky second, although a defender should never turn his back, killed the game for us.

Carroll put in a far better second half display, Wimmer and Bentaleb got 90 minutes under their belt, Chadli scored and scored as a centre-forward amid news Moussa Dembele is to be having a medical.

Congrats to MP and the boys. Too easy. Priority today: To go through to next round with the less effort possible…

We have so many hard and difficult games to come. Premier L, Europa and FA Cup. COYS

Absolutely! COYS

It looks as if it may be a cup where the big teams go through this year so may be tougher to win than it was last year. One game at a time, back to Premier League action and Norwich City next.
