Disappointed to lose to the Vile, over 2 legs some things didn't possibly go our way. Negative tactics maybe at Vile park after taking the lead but heyho. Personally I don't think we're good enough/ready for the PL in our situation, aging players, too many loans and younger players who don't seem to get that much of a chance.
I still think Leeds will go up, I just think it's their turn, funny how things sometimes pan out.
What we must do now, is appoint somebody [new} hopefully and start afresh.

Sick of hearing this, the tactics were the correct ones and a world class save from jrod effort and cheating and bad refereeing decisions cost us.

DG could have put JM through but his tired looking pass went to their last defender.

If we'd gone gung ho we'd have been picked off imo.

Small margins decide a game, poor decisions decide a season. 

Brunty doesn't get sent off then who knows? But watching Brunty all season tells you that when he plays CM there is always a rash challenge round the corner when he gets in a tight spot. He is not a natural tackler and when he gets it wrong, he gets it very wrong.  We all knew we were short for center midfield from the start of the season, even throughout last season.  We gambled on Brunt taking that role, bringing in Johansen too late as he lacked match fitness....and when it came to the crunch the decision cost us.

Gayle doesn't get sent off first game and surely we could have nicked another goal? But we also knew the squad was a player short up-front for goals. HRK (even if available) does not have a consistent goal threat which leaves us with very limited attacking threat to bring on from the bench.

Problems in center midfield, lack of depth up front. We new it. When margins are small, these factors become the difference.

When Brunt can be considered to playing well in CM it's down to his set pieces and picking up a loose ball with time and space.  The defensive side of his game is incredibly poor, he let's players run past him all the time and is always on the edge of giving fouls away.  Put it this way, if you were a pace attacking player, you'd be eyeing Brunt up as someone to run at.

We want the Vile lot at home for the first match of the new season.
