Thrown away a great chance of the playoffs with the draw on Friday and this debacle today… so frustrating.
It's the hope that kills you innit. Was probably not going to happen but it's a nice thought that we'd have something to play for in the closing stages. Thrown away now.
If we had won today and beaten Barnsley we would be sitting 2 pts off the play offs now

Defence getting the blame, but a lot of it is down to the fact they have no confidence in the keeper. A Martin signing and now we are going to trust him with the summer signings!!!

What happened ?

We had visitors at 1-4 and I've just seen the final score.

Surely you've got to have someone at least one defender on the big fella looking for a knockdown though. Not a CB in sight. Their 3rd was Piroe getting in the way of what could have been a regulation clearance as well. We can't blame Fisher for basic defensive errors.

Fulton was awful for their 4th… we fell apart when Fulton replaced Downes

Yep!

We really miss a player like Marc Guehi. Instead we are playing fullbacks at CB and CB's at wingback at times.

No doubt this feels like a loss, but let’s remember we haven’t lost in 7.

Playoffs were always a bit of fool’s errand this season. This was always gearing up for next. If you can’t see the football we’re playing now and feel good about our chances in the future then I haven’t been watching the same team as you.

We’ll continue getting better if we don’t weaken the squad. Big if there….

This summer will be critical.. We really need to bolster the depth of the squad and a good keeper is a must if we are to push on, so it is a big if.

Downes had been booked in first half and had already made a few strong challenges after, was probably on final warning

Can see your point but would have kept him on anyway, if he had got a second yellow then nothing lost in the bigger scheme, fortune favours the brave with a mid table finish and all that
You might think I've forgotten, but one day, when you least expect it, my time will come.
