LEON Imber is the latest Southend United fan to have his say on events at Roots Hall.

Blues fans went in to Roots Hall with a glimmer of hope at the weekend.

After an encouraging performance against a good, top half side in Fleetwood, there was a hint of confidence that Blues could pick up points against fellow strugglers Wycombe who themselves were slipping into the dreaded drop zone.

This monumental game attracted over 6,900 Shrimpers, and what was observed over the 90 minutes left much to be desired.

Words such as gutless and passionless would not be misplaced as us fans, who are repeatedly called upon to turn up in numbers and show massive support for the team, begin to feel like we are left with nothing in return.

Blues’ record on home soil this season is, in truth, a disgrace.

Roots Hall has always been known as a tough place to come as an opposing team.

But, having picked up 20 points out of a possible 63 at home this season, it’s very clear that Roots Hall is not the fortress it was previously known as.

This is a time of desperation for Southend United.

Newly-appointed Kevin Bond must get it right against Walsall on Friday if we are to form a serious fight back and secure safety.

The demoralising fact is for Blues fans, Saturday showed no real change than the performances under Chris Powell.

It was evident there was a huge lack of confidence in the side and when Wycombe scored that first goal, it was clear that there was no way back into the game for Blues.

There are four games left and in no way are Blues down and out yet.

On our promotion in 2015, we were labelled ‘the club that does not know when it is beaten’.

We are not yet beaten and the fans, players and staff need to do everything in their power in these remaining four games to not be beaten.

Onto Walsall, where three points is a must.
