We didn't win because we weren't good enough. Not for the first time.

Our problem is not being able to finish teams off. Ten draws the most of any team in the league. We have only lost two but we are only in 3rd place. We need to bring in someone who can score with boring regularity.

Football in the main is all about opinion and IMO is rarely so black and white with many, many grey areas.

Do I blame the ref for mus not winning certainly not but I do blame him for so many poor decisions that did not help the game in any way.

How good are we, well the table says we are good enough to be in third place with a game in hand and considering our starting point I cant be unhappy with that. Will we be good enough for automatic promotion, hopefully yes but only time will tell.

Its a bit like will Maja stay, will a striker sign, time will tell but until I know different I will continue to hope yes to both.

My very honest opinion of today.

Jon McLaughlin MOTM

Jack Baldwin 7

Luke O'Nien 7.5

Tom Flanagan 7

Reece James 7

Lynden Gooch 6

Max Power 6

Aiden McGeady 7

Dylan McGeouch 5

Chris Maguire 6.5

Charlie Wyke 5
Substitutes


Adam Matthews

Bali Mumba

Alim Ozturk

Benjamin Mbunga-Kimpioka 5

Jimmy Dunne

Robbin Ruiter

Bryan Oviedo 5

My biggest disappointment was Wyke but I hope he gets better and low marks for subs just because they did not have a lot of time

A point was a fai result but the ref was abysmal. Relegated and suspended from the premiership because of his gambling problem I think he hd a bet on Luton winning today. Totally incompetent and lost control of the game early on.

Pah - we played great today against a decent team. Things  just didn't go our way. Gives me great hope. Looking forward to seeing the lads play like that again and we will get something out of it.

Well I thought the ref was poor yesterday....... but after we went ahead we seemed to sit back and allow them the ball and didn't really go for a second goal until after they scored (which was too late)...even though I've seen the penalty incident on TV now I don't think it was

Bad point...we didn't win      Good point...we didn't lose   

After the catastrophic last season and having to totally rebuild our team I was just hoping we could finish in the top 6....we are third and in a good position to claim an automatic promotion spot, yes a win yesterday would have been a massive 3 points and taken us into second place but it's not the end of the world we're still in a good position and it's still a LONG way til the end of the season

you do realise we were the team in red and white don't you. best 3 players on the pitch, our goalie and their players 17 and 11. the nugget of the game wyke virtually every high ball to him resulted in a free kick to luton, that free header he had 6foot 2 and he nocked it a foot or two over the bar.
luton were more than happy for us to play the long ball and hopeful crosses knowing they had control of everything in the air.i said a short while back our results would take a dip introducing wyke and watmore in the side.
if you think that was great you may have a seizure if we do play great.
anyway its all opinions isn't it.

We do not dominate teams, Luton had more possession and more corners (i think)

Wake..needs to improve...will we hold onto Maja or is he away?

We lost to Portsmouth away and drew with Luton at home...both rivals for automatic promotion...it is looking tight

The player ratings on Roker Report don't disagree with me and that was so much better than the last home game.

From a Luton view the ref was crap, it's a pity he spoiled a good game.
We're obviously happy with the point. We've got Pompey and Peterborough at home soon.
Pompey are wavering, this could be a hell of second half of the season.
Judas f*cking off to Stoke is no problem, we've got Big Mick.
Gotta give you guys credit, there's some pretty fair comments on this forum about Saturday.
Maybe it's us two for the top two?

Good to hear your view and I agree with all of that, it could have been and indeed for me was a good game against a very good team.

We have been waiting all season for us to click into first gear but so far we just fall short, hopefully it will kick in soon. Good luck for the rest of the season, I hope you finish second.
