I thought we were poor first half, no pressing and giving them too much time and space. Second to everything, Chaplin very lucky not to be sent off but the ref and linesman didnt see it.

Burgess had a good game, Walton looks quality and has eased into the role and looks confident, so if the recall rumours are true thats really going to affect us as Hladky even looked poor in comparison in the warm up in front of us.

Second half was an encouraging performance. Norwood and Aluko made a huge difference, got a sh*t view of the goal as it was down the other end. We looked to have fight and spirit in the second half compared to the first so whatever McGreal said at the break worked and he used his subs wisely. Theres still incidences of them running through our midfield, but second half you could really see all the boys were all really working hard and trying, so i cant complain at that at all.

Definite deserved the point, couldve stolen a winner but that would've been steal, but thats football sometimes. It was nice to see us actually trying to get a winner as the momentum was with us.

I heard no grumbles about the performance in the stands and we all stood and clapped the guys off the pitch.
Watching the rerun you could really hear the Town supporters. Take my hat off to you Blue and all the Town fans there

You're all credit to the club

Thank you for that BB, always good to get a first hand account . I only managed 3/4’s of the first half b4 I lost ifollow connectivity… certainly only saw about 5 mins of second half and I didn’t even Norwood and Aluko had come on . But if my observation of Bonne and Pigott the ball didn’t stick to either of them dnd they looked too far apart most of the time . Totally ineffective .
For me Bonne has lost his touch for now , s common problem with strikers I know. Pigott is a conundrum. His form at Wimbledon was certainly no fluke , but I’ve not seen anything in his appearances for us yet that makes me think he’s going to settle here . Maybe if JM sticks with : up front but pair Pigott with Norwood we might see a different player ?


Mike: this is a get well message from me as you know I’m always there for you and Lynn if you need anything …. Even if I give a good impression of hopalong Cassidy right now . But he a good patient and do as the Drs tells you … hopefully you’ll be home by end of the week or sooner x

Piggott is a funny one. I desperately wanted him to do well yesterday having been wanting him to be given a proper chance for a while now.

He didnt really stand up though. Some bad first touches, probably signs of a man lacking confidence.

Id give him another game or two but has to perform.

Norwood certainly had the fire in his belly i wanted to see from Piggott.

Thank you Liz much appreciated, and you other guys, no idea how long I'm here, just glad the MRI was clear. I work in this place but being a patient I bloody hate it.

I didnt think they were the better team in the 2nd half and we certainly looked like stealing 3pts towards the end.
I guess we all see things differently BB but more importantly you were there and I was more than a 1000 miles away watching a shockingly poor ifollow stream that was very difficult to follow. Certainly after the substitutions were made we were so much better and got our mojo back which gives us all hope.
On an aside I have every admiration for you guys who travel away to some very unexciting locations supporting a very poor team. Fortunately all my travelling over the years were following town in the Championship & Premier League which is a totally different ball game, even on the bad days which we still had even in the good old days if that makes sense.
