Very fair blog, John. I also came away more depressed than is usual after a defeat. Nothing in the first half hour hinted at defeat. Yet brilliant positional sense by Shane Gore was possibly more significant than inaccurate shooting from the chances we created. Where I think we were victims of bad luck came in the awarding of the decisive free kick. It was a very soft decision and with a gale force south westerly behind the kick a good strike was all that was needed. Countless other contacts were not penalised. Also, the disallowed goal was debatable in my opinion. All those standing near me behind the goal saw no infringement. The keeper simply said "with so many people surrounding me, not looking at the ball, what could I do?"

Having said that, we blazed over from a great position in the second half and never adjusted to the conditions.
