1) Riley the only casualty from the Walsall defeat with Tafari Moore coming straight in to claim a place. Other than that we were unchanged throughout the 18. Surprised a little we stuck with Wootton but we'll see if guess. Slight change to the warm up routine with our RM secondee taking the physical warm up.

2) Southend were far the better team over the first 15 minutes having one goal disallowed for off-side and two other good moves similarly caught. Argyle weren't showing much until a bit of Carey magic inspired a period of play which resulted in a cross which Moore was adjudged to be brought down by the linesman. Carey dispatched the penalty.

3) Argyle were put on the back foot again and it wasn't a great surprise that they forced a corner from which Argyle gave away their second penalty in as many games and the score was level again. Right after the penalty Taylor flattened a Southend player who went down holding his face. The Southend players surrounded the ref (again). Taylor got a yellow and Adams and Powell both saw red.

4) The half time whistle came as a bit of relief to Argyle who were second best all over the pitch. Carey had a much better 45 than last week but Lameiras again looked lost, too often out of position and exposing Moore. Wootton was a little untidy but it was in midfield that we weren't really working. Ness and Grant were fine as individuals but didn't seem to work right together.

5) Last week the half-time change came as a surprise, this week it felt like a necessity. There were none. It didn't get any better for the first 15 of the second with only poor finishing from Southend keeping the scores level. Lameiras duly was replaced by Sawyer with Smith-Brown moving into midfield and Carey to the right hand side.

6) Sawyer had a shocking first few minutes when nothing he did went right. Lack of movement up front was forcing us to pass sideways and we couldn't put a cohesive attack together. Wotton's answer was to replace Fox with Songo'o. 20 to go and Smith-Brown was replaced by Ladapo who made his way to wide left.

7) The game went into that phase where no one really took charge and the game could have gone either way. Free kicks in dangerous places went begging for both teams. Taylor was booked for a foul that was clearly a dive. Luckily the chance was missed. Carey went clear but his cross was too high for Ness. Southend threw away 2 golden chances in injury time.

8 ) Hard to pick a man-of-the-match. Moore and Ness both did well and Carey did OK but no one stood out. I'm still not convinced about Wootton and Edwards as a partnership. If Lameiras was meant to be stirred up by Adams' comments after Walsall he clearly wasn't.

9) If anything this was a worse performance than last week. Disjointed and lacking in direction. Too much lumping the ball forward for Taylor to do his best with. Songo'o added some much needed steel to the midfield. The plus was that Carey was more involved but he still wasn't 100%.

Looking like a slow start to the season once again. Wasn't Ruben hooked at half time last week also? If so would be amazed if he keeps his shirt, good player on form but appears to struggle to get himself up for games.

Shambles. With the exception of Macey it was time to go back in to the changing rooms and hold your head in shame.

Attitude, ability and delivery was poor. How we didn’t lose that is a mystery. Adams was always going to struggle under the new Manager discipline rules and let himself down early.

Sorry, but pathetic.

Sorry to say it and it goes without saying that we're all very happy he beat cancer but Edwards is going to cost us more points than he gains us. We desperately need a mobile centre half.
Argyle will be put to the sword by more ruthless teams than Southend based on the disjointed and clumsy defending today.
No better going forward with either one dimensional hoofing or really pedestrian build up play. Didn't create a chance other than yet another soft penalty at home.
Macey at fault for their pen for punching an easy catch.
Smith-Brown my pick, looks composed and strong.
You know your manager is happy with a point at home when Sawyer and Songo come on that early

Thanks all, it’s really good to get six contributions so quickly when I couldn’t be at the game.

Yes deja vu, early part of last season. No one at it for whatever reason. Move on.

Another thing that bugged me is that we had attacking players who could have ran at Southend in Wylde and Ainsworth but instead we bring on Sawyer and Songo’o?

I’m a fan of Adams but today wasn’t one of his finer days.

Observations from watching on ifollow:

- Macey looks quality, still finding his feet and relationship with his back four is still not there..
- Moore and Smith Brown - both very good on the ball and composed. Both look a little lightweight on the defending side of things but they are good in possession going forward.
- Wootton and Edwards - this is where we are not settled, considering we had Vyner and Bradley last season, early signs from this pair is we lack the presence of Bradley and the distribution of Vyner. Hopefully they will both improve.
- The midfield was generally anonymous today as I think too many long balls passed them by and Southend looked quicker and slicker on the ball.
- Ness and Fox haven't found last season's form, Grant looks to have quality.
- Carey and Ruben not there yet and Taylor getting through a lot of work but we need more of a plan than just pump it into him, Southend worked that out very quickly.

It feels like we are going to need a good 5 games to gel, as today we looked second best and Southend were the better team, According to BBC we had 5 shots to their 17 which is a massive difference. So a point after that performance is probably a positive result.

Hopefully improvement will come over next few games.

First half we only really played down the left wing. We can't do that as you restrict the space and have no passing options. So we couldn't hold possession. Our penalty was never a pen, Moore tripped over the defender. Their penalty was nailed on.

2nd half we started using the width more and it gave us more options, but half the players not sparking when we have the ball nullified any real threat.

Should have been 1-0 Southend so this is a point stolen from a bad performance.

From what I saw, the team don't seem to know each other's roles. Will judge at 10 games and see where we are.
