2-0 after losing possession again

Dykes came on for Ball so we are down to ten men 😆
Totally agree. Yes he scored a 93rd minute consolation, but he is a poor poor signing and must be moved on asap.

Dykes is in better goal scoring form than Austin at the moment.

That's bit harsh on Dykes lads. You all say a striker needs to score, well he did.

I'm more concerned that we played so long without creating anything and it was the two subs who finally got a goal.

End of season, blah blah, I get that I genuinely do, but I'd love to feel we were building something with this team. If Austin and Johansen disappear in the summer as is likely because we can't afford them, I remain very unconvinced that next season would be any different to how bad we were this season before they both arrived.

Good goal too to be fair but completely out of his depth at this level and one of worst ever signings.

I know players have struggled to get going in the past such as Paul Furlong and Lee Wallace but these are experienced pro’s with previous success at other top clubs, everything that Lyndon is not.

You talk a lot of sense, I agree totally.

I agree but think we would improve a little with the addition of Field and some good loans once again. However you never know we might keep Austin and Johansen, sign another couple as Uncle Tony goes for sh1t or bust once again.

Charlie has done what was needed to keep us up. His best is behind him TBH...and we need more goals in this team next season. Doubt we could afford to keep him anyway.

With the benefit of hindsight, might have been worth giving Bonne more pitch time today, and others who have not seen as much game time recently. Might have injected some of the pace to out game that Warbs said was missing today.

Guess I am safe in saying I'm always disappointed when we lose but, on slightly less firm ground, more so with the score line.

No, Warburton was spot on, I want to see more of Bettache and Kelman.
Bonne as with Dykes should be shown the door pronto.
