    Summed up how we have played lately
    Biggest worry is the lack of real chances we create.
    LJ talks a lot about Formations, Protocols and what's expected of the players
    But we seem to be missing the point lately that the object of the game is to actually score goals.
    No points for having more aimless crosses than the opposition.

    Saying that I think Players are better than they showed today.
    Against the better teams we have looked OK.
    Backing us for another Wembley appearance

    That was bloody awful. Let’s hope it’s a lot better in the play offs. I presume all season ticket holders for this season just gone who want a ticket will get one.

    Hope springs eternal. Play-offs never go to form, they're always tense tight affairs.
    Tournament football.

    Most of the squad struggle with this level. Next level is certainly a stretch.
    I expect 15 additions and 10 out over summer as a minimum.

    Think we will do OK.
    Haven't always got the results but we've been the better team against the top sides this season
    Just need to work out how to score some bloody goals
    created bugger all again today.

    Jones is on loan so I don’t see how we can offer him a new contract. <laugh> Hume was crap today, he can’t defend and seems afraid of heading the ball. McGeady was also rubbish and Gooch blows hot and cold. I’m not bothered about O’Nien either.

    Most of the ones you’ve mentioned have been here since we started our League 1 sojourn and surprise surprise they’re still here stinking the place out as we once again fail to make the top 2.

    I think your last minute equaliser today gave you the perfect hand to the final. I know nothing is guaranteed in this lottery, but Blackpool and Oxford are both on their game at the moment.

    We've done better against the top teams. It's the teams at the bottom where we've struggled. Our home form, in particular, has been atrocious.

    Home
    Drew - Bristol Rovers, Burton, Wimbledon, Accrington
    Lost - Wigan, MK Dons, Plymouth

    Away
    Drew - Northampton, MK Dons
    Lost - Shrewsbury, Wigan

    An average of an extra point in each of those games and we would have been in the top 2. Too many points thrown away.

    So, let me get this straight, he’s on loan so we don’t need a contract fir him to stay? Surely if we buy him we have to offer him a contract? Or is that a different rule I’ve never heard of?
    As fir the rest, I’d keep them all. You obviously would rather go and spend millions that we don’t have. Sensible
