Hopefully Cooper doesn't see it like that.... The way we've been playing lately we could easily lose this game.
I know what you were saying, but my point was that a team in midtable is the ideal to play. The luxury as fans is that you can say it how it is - Luton town are nothing special and we should be winning if we want autos, or even playoffs. Managers and players have to be more cautious and guard against complacency.

I said Blackburn would be difficult. It was.

I said today was pretty comfortable. It was.

I like to say it as I see it. Same with the penalty decisions - Watford, Brentford and our fans are too partisan with opinions. Penalties happen, and there might be some luck involved. We've had some dodgy ones, I acknowledge that. Watford have had almost double the amount of penalties than us though, they've had so much luck
I thought we where far from comfortable... Opinions huh.

Yep.

Luton had enough chances to win a couple of games. The only reason people can claim that today was comfortable is because they didn't take any of them.

We won't have the luxury of giving Bournemouth the chances we gave Luton today and getting any sort of result.

Yes absolutely, although you have to say, even though we coughed up a lot of possession today, Woodman wasn't really overworked, again another tidy shift put in by the back five.

Watched the game on a wizi feed so missed parts. Bournemouth will be more of a challenge on Tuesday. The Pope is Roman Catholic. Luton could have scored 3 but didn't. Manning and Grimes won a penalty which would have killed off this game. Fulton Grimes and Smith are playing extremely well, huge battles won and endured including some rough stuff which was as competitive as it gets. Yep BMTH may finish better then Luton but we are the team to beat which is a good thing.

You could tell that Bennett hadn't played for three weeks, he wasn't as sharp, he got turned a few times but still had a good game.

He is only going to get better and he will be vital to the run in.

Just watching us on Quest +1, hadn't realised we weren't awarded a nailed on penalty. Foul by their keeper. Showed it close up and in slo mo, no doubt whatsoever, as the commentator said. 100% penalty.
So anyone feeling bad about our recent penalty awards, don't. They even themselves out.

Absolutely. I will always respect all opinions.

Personally I thought we defended very well once again.

A bit of quality from Dhanda which they couldn't contain, which resulted in an easy finish. They couldn't offer any combination of creativity and finishing which matched that. I think they could have played for another 90 and not scored.

Not sure how people are saying it’s a penalty on Manning. Keeper blocks the ball first and then slides through him on the follow through, nothing wrong with that.

That's pretty much how I saw it but I'd still like the public to think we were denied a stonewaller to redress the balance of them thinking we always only get ones we shouldn't.

Actually, seeing the penalty claim again on our extended highlights, I agree it wasn't a pen. The keeper slid and blocked the shot, then our boy fell over his legs as his momentum took him on.

I wonder what the fallout would have been like if Boro had been denied that pen? Another fine for Colin? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
