    It was a game we, as fans thought we would win considering Luton have just come up and are towards the bottom of the table. If we thought it then I half expect the players thought it too. Too lose without the ball. Out battled all over the pitch.

    This is the negative side of the international break. We certainly missed Nagy and Korey and the organisational skills of Bailey Wright.

    I think LJ was very frustrated with Palmer and the on going problem with Diedhiou. Noticably he's been very vocal in his disappointment with the forward line on a few occasions recently. He's right to be demanding more consistency from players especially if we want to get to the next level. To get to that level you need that mental toughness to take on every type of opponent and impose your game plan.

    Sadly we're not at that level yet.

    Add in Weimann hitting his attempted lob high and wide and his pathetic, and hence easily cut-out, pull back after Rowe's shot had been parried. Second half Weimann might as well have not been on the pitch.

    He tidied up the midfield, hassled the opponents, broke up play and kept the ball moving .

    That is his role and he does it very well. However he can’t do it all on his own and yesterday he was let down by his teammates.

    Did he do that though? 

    Really, he was bullied yesterday, he rarely got the chance to properly hassle or tidy up the midfield as he was up against players who were too physically strong for him. That’s no bad on his part as he’s only 18 but it shows he still has plenty to learn. Yesterday was a big learning curve for him imo.

    Think you both make valid points, probably was his weakest performance so far. However same could be said about several of his much more experienced team mates, who are the ones that should be stepping up when it gets tough... Brownhill, Weimann & Palmer all put in their worst display's of the season.

    For me Saturdays result shows how important it is to get as many of the injured players back and in contention.  We looked tired and we need to have the option to freshen things up especially in midfield.  Afobe is obviously a massive loss and is really impacting us as an attacking force.  We just need to battle, keep picking up points and do all we can to stay in the mix until January and then get the right striker in to push on.  I’ve been proud of how the team has coped with injuries so far and hoping Saturday was just an off day.

    Tired!  They just had 2 weeks off! It was just shambolic, looked like too many of them thought they just had to turn up to get a result. Worrying and, although many won't like it, LJ has to take shoulder some blame for allowing such a complacent approach and not changing things BEFORE inevitably going a goal down!

    Tommy Rowe forced a save very early on. But yeh. This game has been coming for a while.

    Took a while for Robins TV to work for me, so missed that 'highlight'... what I have seen we have looked really disjointed as soon as we get in their half, Weimann been particularly cr@p but nobody moving forward doing anything bar Eliasson.
