I hate to agree with Chelsea fans but their chant of 'that's why you're going down' was spot on. Other results just in have not helped at all.

Decent performance but our achilles heel is our total inability to defend high balls. I think Hughes could've reacted to the situation better, as the game was basically up before he made any subs

We need to realize it's a 90 minute game, same problem in the end valiant effort for 70 minutes but then the usual collapse.
Shame to see it go the same as so many this season but it never seems to change.Can't see a way out now as other results did not help us, some positive things but to many of the negative things that have plagued us all year.

That's it now then could be going down again next year. Should have got a Better replacement for Puel.

That's that then. How in the hell did it come to this? Not long ago we had one of the better defences in the whole league. It is certainly fitting that relegation was all but confirmed by a defensive capitulation. Of the many catastrophic errors made by Les Reed over the past eighteen or so months the second most important one, after the MP fiasco of course, has been the repeated failures to understand that our central defence was getting dangerously weak (also a right back who can defend would have been good). There is no argument now - yes, we don't score enough but in the heat of a relegation struggle, at those crucial moments you need the defence to stand strong. They did their best - it wasn't lack of effort it was lack of quality. 4 points thrown away in a week by our inability to defend when under pressure. Chelski had 9 minutes of pressure in the whole game and scored 3.

If Les Reed has any decency or honour he will stop drawing his large salary now. That money comes from those who pay to watch, whether live or on tv, he is responsible for what has happened so he should go. A few sensible, and obvious to us all, interventions over the past few months would have seen us safe in mid table. Where was Carillo today? Where was Boufal? If either had been a competent centre back we would have been fine. The general response to our relegation will be that ' you can't keep selling your best players' - of course there is some truth in that but the bigger truth is that footballing matters have been run by a complacent idiot...

If we are going to concede 3 each week then its all over.

Good to see some organisation at the back and more purpose going forward. Bednarek suddenly looks like turning into the player we hoped he'd be. Ward Prowse, give me strength. This game makes no difference to our situation at all as we had all written this one off as unwindable. We were down weeks ago and nothing has hanged and now the gap is beyond recovery.

ElSanto added 19:45 - Apr 14
Fair play to Nick, who highlighted the defensive problem very early on, and, rightly so, told us it would be our downfall - more so than out attack.

Les Reed bought Hoedt. Total rubbish. Who would have thought that playing Bednarek instead of Hoedt might have enabled us to stay up. In Les Reed we trust, said complete and utter morons by the hundreds. From comfortable above mid-table to relegation in 2 seasons++++++ sacking TWO managers that HE appointed. Les Reed has destroyed OUR club. Les Reed is the cause and now the effect.
