First time we've gone behind at VP and we failed miserably chasing. I think some earlier changes to formation and personnel in the second half could have salvaged something. Going into the last 10 trailing 2-1 would have been interesting. The middle part of the half was allowed to drift.

I said with the early goal it would be a good test if we could chase a goal losing.

In our good run over last two months we've still been the ones scoring first in games.

It's still the case when we concede the first goal we usually lose the game.

Iíve never been a Bruce fan & I have zero faith that he will get us to top 2 this year so my view of the game will be scathing but I really donít see why he doesnít even occasionally switch his wingers - never know a winger might get to bye line once if they didnít have to cut in every time before crossing a ball.

2 strikers with no way of getting ball to them wasnít great.

Not doubt Hogan will cop a lot of stick again, fed on scraps & made only chance for himself.

Adomah was truly dreadful yet made it through 90 mins (at least think he did Iíd done one at 83-84)

Ref was a comedy act today

I can take being beat by a better opponent. What I can't is idiotic tactics and a bullshit effort.

Hogan to go in Jan. The man has no motivation to make an impact on the game. Whelan can't stay on for 90 if he's a dog after 60, especially with jedi on the bench.

All we did watch launch balls instead of creating something.

Aggravating.

We played with two wingers and full backs that aren't afraid to push on so not quite true. In reality, the first goal shocked them and too many were way below the expected level. Maybe 3 games in a week did take its toll but we apparently have the strongest squad in the league so it could have been freshened up.

It sounds as if we were unfortunate to concede an early goal and then lose Terry, but good managers and teams should be able to recover from such setbacks.  Unfortunately typical of Bruce to follow up a good performance with a poor one or vice versa.  I stick with my view that play-offs are the best we can hope for because of this inconsistency.  And I still think Bruce is not getting anywhere near as much out of this squad as he should or could be.

Agree and would you trust Bruce to get the big decisions right in the play offs?
I donít.

Very poor.  Very early goal rocked us and we never recovered.  Subs and where Bruce played them was very odd. Let's hope Terry is not badly injured.

Maybe 3 games in a week did take its toll but we apparently have the strongest squad in the league so it could have been freshened up.

3 out of 4 of those wingers / full backs play on the opposite side to their strong foot which can work well but occasionally when it isnít switch them round, give opposition something to think about
