We should have put it away enough chances. Big blunder by Easty. To be honest lg1 might be more fun than the ch still gutted

Where? Show me.
The amount of posts about us being in the championship and how we would get on before the game was even over. People assumed we would just walk past wycombe.

Simon Eastwood can go. Both goals his fault and he’s been poor this season. He shouted for Moore to duck out of that and then tried to blame him after - he was on his bike far too quickly for a notoriously flat footed and ‘stay at home’ keeper, and Moore hasn’t ducked out of a header all season. As soon as it bounced you knew he was clattering him and that was that.

And as for Marcus Browne - watch that moment before the penalty again when the dust settles. Their right back scuffs the ball back to the keeper and if Browne is paying attention he runs clean through. Instead he gives up, turns and starts berating somebody, and it’s the subsequent long ball clearance that goes over Moore. You know what happens next.

Thrown away needlessly and pointlessly.
Sadly I agree that Easty let himself and us down. Not in agreement that it was a pen but, he has not been the same all season.
As always, teams do their research and stop us.

Too many big players haven't bothered to take part in any of the playoff matches. not big or strong enough too much tapping about in our own half. Next season we need to be more direct we need to play football suitable for league one. We've been done by a side built on the cheap. A goal conceeded whilst claiming for a throw in instead of playing to the whistle. It feels raw bitter and like our team bottled it. I will probably feel better tomorrow.
Havent bothered?
Goodness

Had been mentally preparing for this feeling all week but didn't think it would be as bad as this. To lose in that manner is beyond a travesty. Two of the softest goals you could hope to see (not to mention one offside, after the ball looked it had gone out) and some absolute sitters missed. That Henry chance is going to go down in infamy. What a ridiculous thing to do.

We weren't outplayed and we weren't second best. They kept us at arms length in the first half, granted, but never looked like scoring a second. Our football in the second half was so fluid at times and we blew them away, missing a number of big chances. To get back in the game, make a boatload of chances, not take them, and then to have them score from a boot upfield that their offside forward runs onto to win a pen is just hairwrenchingly frustrating.

I know we should probably play the gracious winners and hold our hands up and congratulate Wycombe, and to be fair they'd been having a great season (up until December), but we were the better team today in every department - they didn't create any chances and didn't defend well. They were time wasting from the first ten minutes.

We've thrown away promotion.

KR is going to have a hell of a job lifting some of those players up. I don't envy him one bit

*Dons tin hat* Is Henry’s race run? Its all very well having technically ”pretty“ players but, as Wycombe have shown, the modern game is all about dynamism, pace and power. Can we say thats what the likes of Henry and even Taylor bring?

By the way, did Brannagans car break down on the way to Wembley? Im waiting for an explanation as to why he didnt show up..

Like I say, show me.

You may have assumed that although I suspect you're trying to wind people up to gratify yourself if I'm honest.

Browne gave up. Hoof up our end and we’re done.
