Morecambe manager make harsh statement after defeat to Colchester United

Morecambe manager Ged Brannan expressed frustration with his players’ performance after the 1-0 defeat against Colchester United at the Mazuma Mobile Stadium on Saturday.

Arthur Read’s first-half free-kick determined the outcome against Morecambe, where Ged Garner missed a second-half penalty and an offside call nullified Jacob Bedeau’s goal. This result means the Shrimps have experienced three draws and three defeats at home since Ged Brannan took over from Derek Adams at the end of November.

The loss also resulted in Morecambe slipping back to the 15th position in League Two. This defeat came against Colchester, who began the day in the third-bottom position.

In reflecting on the loss, Morecambe’s manager conceded that certain aspects of their performance were deemed ‘unacceptable.’ He expressed disappointment, particularly with the first half, emphasizing that the team seemed to be lacking the necessary intensity. The manager also attributed some of the struggles to injuries and the absence of key players, acknowledging that the team fell short of the required standards before the halftime break.

The manager expressed his dissatisfaction with certain players seemingly jogging around the pitch, deeming it unacceptable. He plans to review the match with the players on Monday to address these issues. Despite a spirited effort in the second half and a missed penalty, the manager believes that scoring at that crucial moment could have turned the game in their favor. Morecambe is currently experiencing a challenging run at home, and the manager acknowledged a sense of nervousness in front of their fans, emphasizing the need to rectify this situation promptly.
