I must admit I was genuinely surprised at how palpable the 'Austin effect' was last night. Would we have got any result last night without him? Quite possibly not.

Although we have been playing fairly good football recently, albeit without results, last night the whole team looked sharper than it has done for some time. Austin's quality of movement and some lovely little lay offs gave us a keener edge upfront and his influence on Dykes was clearly a positive one.

When Austin was announced I prepared myself for disappointment. This kind of thing can so often become a big let down. I will continue to keep a lid on my hopes. After all, it's just one game. However, maybe, just maybe, the 'Austin effect' might be the turning point of the season.
Austin is at least 2 classes above what we already had. Great to see him showing that on the pitch.

I too was conflicted with the decision to loan him. It was like yet yet another volte face on the clubs plans for the future but, as you say, it has had a very positive effect on the team and long may it continue.
It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.

We won, imparting an increasingly unfamiliar feeling of joy and boy does it feel good!

Hopefully, we can back this result up and MW will get the time he deserves to continue with the (hard) task in hand. I really want him to succeed as I can't bear the thought of more managerial upheaval and the inevitable lack of progress it tends to yield.

Also, it was great to hear MW deliver a different type of post match interview!
He probably forgot how it felt to win :wink: Really pleased for him.

Agree Luton were very poor, but who cares just the result we need to kick start the season. Always believed there was a good team to develop and really want to give MW the time to do so. Confused as to why Willock doesn’t get in the team, feel he could play in Chairs position who looks like he could do with a rest. Would much rather see him come on instead of Adomah. Saying that good pass from him last night and a assured finish from Bonne, he made it look easy but the ball was bobbling along the surface, took it very well.

Bring on Wycombe, let’s get a high scoring win. Link up play between Austin and Dykes looked very encouraging, would love to see Dykes get amongst the goals. Then it’s away to Cardiff and home to Derby expecting points from all these.
Don't underestimate Wycombe. Any win will do for now to get confidence back.

I mean, they beat us last time out - their first win of the season. We needed the Luton win badly, but lets not get ahead of ourselves.

It was a 1-1 draw.

Ah my bad - you're correct. Must've got it mixed up with another game.

Looking like an excellent result after their game today with AFC Bournemouth.

Yes, they “stamped the form”
