Think a lot of us could have predicted this - whilst I'm, of course, gutted by the result, I am delighted for Leon, a terrific player but under-rated by many.

The Gaffer's nailed it on twitter. He's bloody spot on from a supporters perspective. A complete wasted journey.
The conditions enabled a supreme advantage for the Met. A lot of credit for the Met and the management. You know exactly what to expect from their style of play and frankly when they start to deliver into the box you have problems. They also have creativity - which frankly we are lack. Reminded me of a woeful afternoon at Hampton.
One would expect at the very least a contest in it's truest context - we were flat.
As far as Leon is concerned, it was our defending, or lack of it, which enabled him his goals, with a tad wind assistance. I felt for our forwards, they had no service.
Underlying factor for me,as with Hampton. We know what they do. We are either not switched on or basically lack the tools to counter-act. If it's the latter, and I fear it is, it shows up areas which need addressing.
But in reality, we all know this, it's all part the healing process.

I really think this is one that the gaffer got wrong, not playing Leon in the early part of the season. Yes, he had a bit of a lean spell, but I always thought he was better than Morgan, and I reckon if he was getting games he wouldn't have felt the need to go elsewhere, which obviously bit us on the bollocks today.

Fully agree should in my opinion have been smith and Morgan as the 2 forwards.as stated think the gaffer did get that one wrong however he doesn't get much wrong.

Maybe with a stronger midfield, Gary would've felt more comfortable with a 4-4-2 (Leon and Aaron up front while Kezie was injured). But with no Maclarens, the midfield looked light so we often went 4-5-1 and Leon didn't look especially suited to being the only forward. It's a shame but you can rarely keep everyone happy....especially when on a poor run.

On the plus side, Kezie and Adam have looked good and should get enough goals to keep us out of the relegation spots.
