Poor first half looked like a mid table league 1 side, better second half. .Charlton played best game of thier season today. looks like playoffs again, can't drop points at home against bottom half teams if you want automatic promotion seems to be a lack of confidence in the side not sure they know what system they are supposed to play. But I feel if we don't go up this season we will go up next still be on target.

Think if we don't go up this season we'll be in a rebuild.

I'd expect a few players to leave and tbh, probably the manager too.

Absolutely essential we go up this year if we want this fantastic progress to continue. 

Fingers crossed we can pull some results out of the fire

Poor 1st half but better 2nd when Sheehan, Maghoma & Dempsey got into the game.

Their 2nd goal was horrible.....asleep to the short corner, no tackles when it's played accross & Coleman should have done better. (He'd no chance with the others )

On the plus side, we scored 3 good goals, certainly improved & nearly won it at the end but we're desperate for Santos & Baxter to return.

Could have been worse !!!

The thing that worries me about Coleman, for all the good saves he makes, including that one at 3-3, is he never looks sure what he's meant to do next 

Playing out from the back really isn't his thing 

And I think it makes him nervous and prone to errors that will cost us

I blame the boss for being third and with a couple of games in hand

Biggest budget in our league. Games in hand mean fuck all, especially as they are all away games!

I enjoyed the 2nd half immensely, proper attacking football and entertainment.  2 quality goals from open play and some good performances.  Awful 1st half apart from the goal (IEs no-marking tactic at corners continues to be a puzzler and directly cost us the 2nd goal) but came away having been entertained more than in recent home games, it felt like there was real excitement around the ground and a 4th goal would have been justified and would have brought the house down.  Unfortunately still no later winner in a home game all season which is virtually unheard of for a promotion chasing team.

Yes I actually enjoyed a lot of our play but we're a weird bunch us football fans.

We'd be much happier if we'd have just ground out another turgid 1-0 nailbiter 😄

Wouldn’t be a disaster ending up in the playoffs, we would be in a far better position than last time.

It would considering we're a fairly shit playoff team.

Not to mention the effect on my heart and blood pressure 😆

given the position we’re in and spending over 1m 

Like it or not if we Finnish in the playoffs we will deserve to be there, the table never lies, as it stands I’d fancy our chances against any of Barnsley/Peterborough/ Oxford.

We have spent the most on transfers this season, hope that helps!

Think Wenger did an interview once and said summat about players being over coached and it meaning they end up not wanting to or being able to make a decision on the pitch and Coleman is a prime example of it for me. Decent keeper but is hamstrung by how he is expected to play.

There's others who suffer the same because when we attack quickly (passing wise not 9 iron) we will score against anyone at this level but constantly slowing attacks down to take extra time and touches makes it miles harder for the players we have.
