    We´re hopefully learning but it´s the hard way
    As one more mistake gifts a goal,
    We can´t fault the endeavour there in our play
    But it´s tough playing the catch-up role

    If they get a lead, up here in this tier
    Away teams especially, are tough,
    To break down, and the pressure we bring to bear
    May not always just be enough

    We saw it today how once they went ahead
    How content they were to defend,
    Happy to sit back and break out instead
    When a chance came up at our end

    And although we huffed and we puffed a good deal
    The breaks didn´t just go our way,
    Half-chances we had, but clear cut, to steal
    A point or more, weren´t there today

    The best fell to Morison late second half
    But his header whistled past then,
    But Declan Rudd did at least have the last laugh
    As he saved one more dubious pen

    We could and maybe should have had one ourselves
    When Vaughan ended bloodied and sore,
    But Halsey nor his assistants could just tell
    That he took an elbow to the jaw

    So all in all, one more step in the process
    Of learning our trade in this flight,
    Mistakes will get punished, which we must address
    Without them we´ll soon be alright. OTBC

    Chins up all, have a good week, we´re off again Saturday

    Yours,

    Hi RBF, wise words, my friend, and, hopefully, we will learn our lesson in time!

    Heads up, eyes down, shoulders to the wheel, I still think we'll be ok in this league given time and the occasional rub of the green!

    <cheers>

    Not only poetic but also correct. Tell your mates on the match thread that they don't know what they are on about.

    I like the sensitive and intelligent type. That's rare in a football fan, most blokes I meet on matchday are all macho and a bit thick.

    I think that's a bit uncalled for Liz.
    As far as I can recall not a single Budgie gave you a hard or bad time on the match thread and most if not all of us were intelligent enough to acknowledge we got what we deserved on the day due to our fear of shooting on target (apparently we had 5 shots on target but I am struggling to recall any one them <laugh>).

    Although some of your players were happy to go to ground when the opportunity presented itself, at no point did anyone pinpoint that as a reason why we lost. Nor did anyone suggest the referee cheated us out of points although the 'incident' at the end of the game is highly debatable.

    All things considered, and taking in to account the shocking decisions that have gone against us in previous games, I think we maintained a pretty high level of dignity and integrity under the circumstances while watching the same naff decisions going against us.
