What a disappointing result that is,unforgivable really.
No matter what level of football a team plays,from kids football to the champions league , not seeing out the game as the clock hits 90 minutes and you have a two goal lead and yet concede twice,bloody annoying that is. Twisted Evil Evil or Very Mad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

Should have left the flipping team as was without subbing people after 85 minutes. Why upset the balance? That's what happened.

Easy to say with hindsight, but ludicrous to attempt to blame the loss of the points on that tbqh. Making late subs is fine, especially bringing O'Brien on, who's a bit pacy, works hard, can be a bit of a nuisance, etc.

RB's decision to bring on Bullman was sensible, his decision to bring on AOB was sensible, it's just one of those things.

Sure, dropping two points in such fashion is annoying as hell, but anyone who blames RB for this doesn't have a clue, frankly.

Especially those who were not at the game.

On 90 minutes we switched off.

Why bring on AOB, bring on Connolly and see the game out.

It was almost impossible to play any football on a pitch that literally had no grass. First half literally nothing to talk about.

Second half came out looked much better a superb strike from Proctor and a great hard working goal from Hayes. From then on we were in control the board when up for injury time and we fell asleep.

First goal was well worked but the second was a cross Essam just kicked thin air and it was a tap in.

Feels like a loss.

so are you saying the game just needs Reds to clear their lines go long ball and see the game out?

At 3pm i would have taken a draw. Disappointing to throw it away from 2-2 though.

So many draws recently. Frustrating.

Its difficult to put your finger on it. It seems as if fans and players were celebtrating the won on 89 mins and we all switched off. They diddnt do any thing different but we just stopped running and blocking. Diddnt do the basics in terms of running the clock down. Its going to be a painful lesson for our young defenders. Never count your chickens

Not sure you mean that.

I'd have taken a draw from before the game, but in this manner is disappointing.

I await the reports.

Both teams had to play on it.

Yep, what a joke, holding our own in league 1 and getting a point away to an established league 1 club who have had a decent run of late, even if we did throw away a two goal lead!
Maybe some perspective needs to be applied to what our club has achieved thus far this season?

Something to this effect is said every game. I don't care if it's u10's football or the champions league final you CANNOT justify throwing away a 2-0 lead in injury time.
