Could have been...

7 points from 6th spot tonight if we had put Reading and Millwall away. 

 

The boys must be kicking themselves.

Fine margins...we’ve thrown 6 points away against WBA and Birmingham over 3 games!! 

 

We should have beaten reading based on the game and chances...point away at Millwall is always a point gained imo!!

 

that difference between us and the top 6, they’re ruthless and we’re not.

We aren’t good enough people. Huge clearout required. Anyone can go for me.

Agree. Of course, I'd take it but like I said yesterday it would just continue to mask our underlying issues, many of which I believe to be mental. Consistency, general mental frailty, no sacrificial mindest, never say die attitude, lack of leadership.....etc, etc. Then there are the technical shortcomings along with the squad imbalance.

 

It's a big job and one that will only be fully addressed with a very honest assessment.  This includes being able to see through those players that flatter to deceive.

I’m confident for next season, pick a consistent team, manager now knows the division inside out etc etc....we need a bit of luck with injuries but so does everybody else.

 

If we could scrape together the funds to resign Westwood & Hector (on a loan) then find a way that FF, Fletch, Joao , Reach, Bannan can do their stuff consistently then we’ve got half a chance

Even at 7 points out you’re still only in 13th spot. 7 points away and in 7th is something you’d think may be achievable but in 13th it’s not just the 7 points you need to claw back against one team but also hope 6 more teams don’t do the same or better. 

 

There are some very good teams between us and 6th so you’d expect a few of them to go on a run between now and end of season.

What jos did to this team will never be forgiven or forgotten by me I'm afraid. Between him and Carlos they wasted a golden opportunity. All we needed after Wembley was a beast in the middle and some pace, maybe not even the beast. Pace was needed though and nobody but the fans saw it. Criminal.

I'm optimistic when it comes to Wednesday but we deserve our position. It's nearly march and we have yet to win by more than one goal.we are decidedly average and awful in midfield - with little creativity. Work in progress.

It's true we are not quite good enough but we are not miles away. 

Have faith for next season.

Looking on the bright side in the twelve games since Jo’s left we’ve conceded eight goals. Three v Chelsea and hull respectively , leaving two in ten from the remainder. That’s a very impressive defensive record from a team that couldn’t keep a clean sheet and wa# shipping goals for fun.  IF we could hooper fit and firing the goals would come. If not then hopefully a new striker is top of the shopping list for summer.

This is by far the best post ive seen on here this season. Especially the end part. As good as some of our players are (Bannan & Reach spring to mind) they flatter to deceive and in Bannan's case are very good at masking it !!!

But there is a reason why we're not 7 points off the top spot.

 

We simply aren't good enough.

 

Can't wait for Bruce to sort this squad out in the summer.

 

So many of them need binning off.
