|Just a few thoughts from today|
at 19:58 16 Mar 2019
What a difference Chalobah made when he came on in place of Skuse, we looked a completely different team! If I was PL I'd be trying to entice Trev to stay for another season long loan of first team football, think we're going to miss him incredibly when he returns to Chelsea. Also, Jackson needs to start ahead of Quaner, just offers so much more than the big German who looked poor again.
Another good performance from Nolan, he's growing in confidence with each game and impressing me more by the week.
Some lovely touches from Edwards and Judge in the second half the pass from Judge with the outside of his foot near the Cobbold touchline was sublime.
Fans generally moaning at Bart's kicking, two pinpoint kicks from his hands to put us immediately on the attack was terrific to watch. The headed chance by Nolan which went agonisingly wide was a wonderful move from back to front. A quick mention for Kenlock, thought he played well too and Bree had a very solid game.
The first half was a poor affair, but the lads were wonderful to watch during that second half and in those tricky conditions, that wasn't easy. Thoroughly outplayed Forest, yet another side like Reading that got away with one today. Something is certainly happening, more encouraging signs which makes me believe PL is most definitely the right man to lead this club back to a more promising future.

Just wondering if it would be a little higher for a non-ticket promotion due to the Dark Lord's return? 16k+?

|Plenty to be encouraged about in going forwards|

That’s why we need to let PL get on and manage the side. Really encouraging signs for us in the long term. This season is done, which we all accept, but plenty to be heartened by for the remaining games and certainly next season.

Those little breaks just don’t go for you. The keeper’s blocked clearance goes to a Bristol defender and then to safety, the Bristol defender slips on the edge of the box and his pass goes to his team mate. You just know if we were the other end of the league we’d have seen the benefit of those two errors!!

After reading the tragic story about the young Romford girl’s fatal stabbing followed by another teenager’s death in Manchester, just makes my blood boil. What are the feasible solutions? Something radical needs to be done in my opinion. What I don’t know?! It just appears you sadly read about this type of event most days now in this country. Just so little thought or value for someone else’s life.

First half we were outplayed by Reading who looked really good on the break. Their pace to get forward to support Oliveira was frightening at times. I watched us in comparison, Judge picks up the ball and there's only Quaner ahead of him with players behind the Irishman labouring, we are just so slow. Not sure why we needed 3 defenders to mark one striker either? Thought we were better second half and Martinez pulled off some fine saves to keep Reading ahead until our equaliser.
Pennington, Judge and Nolan had decent games and Edwards did well when he came on, but Quaner was poor apart from a few mazy runs he's just not a target man regardless of his size and the chance he missed with the free header in injury time reflects a striker short on goals and confidence. Keane would have buried that! What Nsialla was doing for their winner, I just don't know? For a man his size he was simply out-muscled and turned far too easily. Also, I can see why some question Kenlock's ability, thought he looked lost at times and very unconvincing in his play.
The support was terrific apart from a slight lull during the first half. However, the result was harsh especially based on our second half performance, but Reading showed up our flaws enough during the first half to highlight we just aren't good enough to compete at this level. Thankfully, that should now hammer the final nail into our coffin and confirm our league fate after what has been an atrocious season from start to finish.
11 games to go and counting!!

|Well if Reading are second rate.....|

They are making us look a really poor side. Oliveira is the difference, wish we had him up front!!!

|I, for one, am really proud of the lads!! |

Disappointing to concede so late, but they’ve dug in for 65+ minutes with 10 men against a side with a very decent home record. In most circumstances that is a decent point. We have to be realistic about our prospects. I know some will be moaning that we’ve not won; the damage was done way before this game. Take the point, move on to next week at home to Reading.
|Do you think 'certain' players will show a sense of loyalty? |

Thinking about Huws mainly. The club have treated him extremely well considering his lack of football over the last coupe of seasons. I just wonder if Huws will give us a season to try and get us back up? Just wonder if he feels a sense of loyalty due to his lack of game time? If we can get him fit and he stays fit for a sustained period, he'd be a terrific addition like Dack for Blackburn in League One. Thoughts?
