To be positive, we can relax on Saturday and enjoy the match as a contest without worrying about ifs and buts and maybes elsewhere
But
Another deflating away trip. Not enough to be talking about “good effort” and the lads did their best. Either KR has to radically change his mentality/tactics or we are stuck in this league. And while I’ve enjoyed some sparkling football against the weaker teams this season, please anybody, don’t claim that’s enough.
It isn’t.

Thought the same about Stevens and saving the penalty at the time, watched it a few times again now and still unsure!

Thanks as ever Paul for articulating the thoughts of many.

I agree with this comment. We need more steel to combine with the flair, as many posters have said. The hard questions for me start with the FB and CDM positions. Many opinions but we need specialists in those positions and cover. Can't remember which pundit it was the other week who emphasised the importance of a strong defensive 6 (in the context of a 4-2-3-1 setup) in allowing the front 4 some freedom to focus on attack.

Thanks Paul. So disappointing. And so frustrating when we could have made promotion this season. Are we destined to continue to be the not quite good enough team? Really fed up with KR's excuses. "It feels like we let people down". Too right.

It was always going to be hard to get promotion, with so many good teams also going for it, but we could have managed a much better effort. I expected a barnstorming late run as in the last two seasons - I wonder if Karl did as well?

Good write up as usual Paul.
When you said that we didn't have a chance after our goal, you seem to be missing the Ryan Williams chance in the second half.
I thought that he should have scored , which at the time would have put us 2 1 up.

I honestly can't remember that.

Must say my reaction after the game was a silly defence mistake and there keeper hardly had a shot to stop!

Good read as usual Paul. Didn’t understand why we wanted to waste time/slow the game down when it was 1-1 as it was only going to go one way if Rotherham got their noses in front.

I can understand these tactics if we were really under the cosh, but if we had got a second then I think it was game over for Rotherham, especially with their record of late and with their fans getting on their backs due to the drop in form, but again Robinson got it wrong again. I personally think he thinks to deeply rather than just getting on with the game.

Will he (Karl) learn this summer by bringing in more physical, mobile non injury prone players… I dealt it….Will Grigg anyone!
