Promised an attacking performance from a team wanting to win the game, but RH didn't sufficiently motivate his team and we got a typical end of season nothing performance.
Far too pedestrian like all our performances since we have been virtually safe, only this time we didn't concede the usual 3 goals !!
Had some good chances but were frustrating in front of goal. Ings wants too many touches instead of shooting first time, JWP too scared to shoot and has to get everything into his right foot all the time, Redmond although prepared to run at them, needs to know when to pass or shoot. He got a super goal, but unfortunately after that, the team thought they had done enough and went back to slow mode.
With 20 mins left in front of over 30k fans, you would think they would want to win the game and put in a performance for the fans, but no. Players became lazy and didn't seem to want to amend Gunn's error.
The game was summer up as we approached injury time. The fans wanted us to press forward and get a winner, but Stephens was content with passing it back to the keeper on at least 3 occasions.

Not much to cheer about, so further proof that RH has a massive rebuilding job ahead of him. Need to get rid of at least 10 or 12 and sign 4 or 5.

Finally well done to Iron Fran.

Not worth rating the players or reporting on the match. Except maybe to give 10/10 to Austin, Long, Stephens as parting gifts. I hope. The point now is to see how this weird squad gets shuffled.
I personally want to see us be rid of Stephens, Austin, Long, Elyanoussi, Gallagher.
And I think we'll sell McCarthy too.
And I think that it would be a mistake, especially if there's not much money floating around, to outright buy Ings.

Just imagine how everyone's going to feel if our main striker on the first day next season is Ings, Austin or Long. Even the biggest optimist would have to give up at that point. So this all means we'll be needing new strikers. Clearly Obafemi is going to be one. Maybe try Carillo out under new management. But definitely at least one new striker required, as we all know.

I think loanees Reed and Hesketh will be given a chance to make the team.

And I think some youngsters will also be blooded, including Alfie Jones at CB.
But even so, a good centre back is needed, as we all know.

So I don't really expect many new signings. In fact we'll make more progress with "addition by subtraction," getting rid of unproductive resources. IMHO next year will be an evolution mostly from below with youngsters, plus a new striker and new CB.

You read it here first (ha-ha! Pretty much what everyone's been saying all season).
