Definitely, we deserved fuck all from the game anyway.
Similar to how i felt after the Leeds game, hopefully you get payback as quick as we did!

Watched the second goal a few times and not seeing this handball though thats been spoken of, seems to hit him in the upper part of his chest from the main angle. From the side angle it looked like if it hit anything other than it would be his right arm but the main angle its not really close to it.

I was about 3 rows from the front and directly in line with Brown, looked like it clearly hit his hand.

I’m not as bothered about that one as after seeing the highlights, it happens so quick it’s difficult for the linesman and/or ref to see and doesn’t look like he’s handled it. It’s only because of the clear view I had that I could see it hit the hand.

We won 4-0 tonight and it was fairly comfortable, but we made hard work of it when QPR went down to 10. They actually missed a sitter and should have equalised but when we realised how to play against 10 men we demolished them.

That’s our 5th away win of the season, I can’t remember the last time we won more than 4 away games in an entire season. Ridiculous form.

As this is a championship board which lincoln are not in ,then why would i mention them , as i said before the championship is a gold mine on betfair ,leeds 0-0 at HT always LTD
Yes but there are 24 teams in the Championship, strangely though you only ever mention one. Hmmm

Thought we should have won today, we weren't very good and are far too pedestrian but Birmingham didn't offer much at all going forward.
Saying that I suppose you could say they were 10 minutes away from the perfect away performance.

Watching us is so frustrating nobody has outclassed us, but equally we haven't outclassed anybody, we don't take our chances and are prone to conceding late ones. Frustrating, could turn to struggling to stay up depending on the EFL's punishment.

Awful watch that, just can't cope with defensive injuries.

Ledson at right back was an abomination, clearly never played there in his life, at fault for the 1st & 3rd and gave away the penalty just after half time for the 2nd. Cost us the game and there was no coming back, not his fault but he didn't even deserve a 1/10. Storey looked lost after months out in the cold and DJ ended up playing left back for the last twenty!

Hit the post and wasted a good chance to go 1-0 up, a minute later, they get a lucky bounce and it lands to the league's in-form player. Hard to say how things would have panned out otherwise but scoring that first goal is massive in this league.

Rudd played well and then shat all over himself, should have stopped the penalty and the 4th was truly pathetic keeping.

Gallagher has been great for us, modern day club legend but at 35 its time to phase him out for Tom Bayliss, last night was the worst i've seen him play, he was laughable, think his off-days will become more & more common.

Pearson & Rafferty the only decent performers.

I thought he was clearly offside at the time, but looking at this still means it certainly wasn't as clear cut as many are making it out to be. Collins is offside yes, but not by a huge amount - with the defender moving forward and the striker moving back, it is difficult to call in real time.

Not sure you can really tell from a photo still front on.

In real time he clearly looks off and pundits etc all seem to think the same.

Still, no point dwelling on it. It’s annoying but we were second best all night anyway so no complaints about the final result.

Brentford for us today, really think they are a quality side when ive seen them on tv over this season and in seasons prior. Probably better backed than we are, but really the sort of club we should be looking to emulate if we want to stay at this level for any period of time in my view.

Interested to see if we make any changes, was just feeling that a few were looking a bit knackered on Tuesday. Id suggest its very doubtful that Brown lasts the full 90 and Cornick looks to be running on fumes at the moment

My first trip to Griffin Park in it last season, should be a decent day out but not expecting much from us for the actual game I must say!

Fully deserved that but even under strength Charlton made us work for it.

Delighted for the likes of Bobbin that they're moving on from Roly and can see them being at the right end next season.

Been concerned about the fragility at the back from day one. Were in real trouble now as any smidging if confidence wiped away by a brutally efficient Brentford. Excellent in all areas. Lethal front three and centeal midfield, but were so bad at the back. Potts like Bambi on ice today

Well done Barnsleh

Luton are such a bipolar side, cut the errors out and they'd be sat pretty.

The jump between leagues is getting wider mind and you're punished if you make mistakes.

Well that went well.

Weirdly we actually started quite well and as the ball was sailing over the top for Potts to deal with easily I thought, maybe we can tough out a point here. And then the usual inexplicable brain dead defensive mistake that we give away every game happened and we collapsed from there. Probably both Shea and Potts at fault for that but bloody hell did Potts look conference standard today. Has no place in a championship side.

Credit to Brentford they stuck the foot on the throat and punished us but some of the defending was an embarrassment to be honest. Very clear that none of the defence are up the level but it’s the whole team who are incapable. I think he’s shit so I tend to pick on him and watch him a lot and there are certainly others culpable today, but Tunnicliffe seems to think it’s ok to just jog and point as his man sails past him. Someone elses problem obviously!

Jones will be gone before the season is out,
he cannot organise a side at all

We are also screwed for the next few weeks as Brown looked like he got a hamstring injury. Without him Jones hasn’t a clue how to get us to attack either!

So all around a great day!
