Once again I tuned in to watch on TV and again it was a poor show. So disappointing to watch with the one highlight being Grealish's goal. Kodja was stupid reacting like he did because the replay clearly shows Fredericks kicking him in th stomach first and if he had gone down then I am sure the Fulham player would have been given the red card. Instead he reacted and was sent off. I think SB still has a lot to do and we need to get off to a good start next season if we are to achieve our goal of a return to the Premiership. Feeling a bit down if I'm honest.

Like I said after Reading, win lose or draw, we are shapeless and pretty awful really. Not seeing any signs of progression at all to give me hope for next season. Big job for Bruce in the summer again. He said it would take at least 3 transfer windows, he was right. Sadly some of the new buys haven't settled in and impressed either. Only positive was a good goal from Jack. But he has to contribute more than the occasional goal.

Agreed Mr Fear. One of my main concerns however is that SB and his staff still appear to be looking for the best system to play to. I get the impression ( and I really hope that I am wrong on this ) that he is changing systems in order to pick the players he wants to play. That is not the way to construct a team and certainly not the way to get promoted next season.

If we don't get promoted next year the ffp will mean we will be in this league for many more years, I say sack Bruce.

The best thing to come out of today was the 5hite losing again. Our seasons over, baring the game on Sunday against the previously mentioned. Worth him experimenting. Changed shape gave fringe players a go. Would liked to have seen RHM more. Jimmy danger getting sent off didn't help. Squad needs trimming massively with a few quality additions coming in. Amavi, jeez if we can resurrect that £20 mill offer we had, take it. Lots of work to do in pre season. We are very poor though. Let's hope we can develop a style and pattern of play in the summer. For me the next games our last of the season let's put a nail in the 5hites coffin. Enjoy the summer and here's hoping for a better season next. UTV VTID!!!!

Utter ***** football for most of this season. Gabby will come back and save us with richards in town. I'm off to put pencils up my nose and shout wobble.

Yeah that was pretty poor today but the sending off didn't help. i struggled to pick our best player today. I was at the game and as usual our fans were superb.

Well with Kodjia out for the rest of the season it gives us the perfect chance to give RHM a few games. Him and Hogan together should give us some decent pace up front. Today was always going to be a difficult game, Fulham are in good form and look a good bet to win the play offs. Kodjia's silly sending off killed any chance we had really.

1 season on from relegation and apart from having a quality striker in kodjia we haven't really improved in the football area. Still look like we lack confidence, any purpose on the pitch and we don't have a style like say Fulham do. SB is not getting any improvements in these areas and a good manager would regardless of player quality

UGH not looking good at all, the lack of possession is a real concern. We don't look after the ball and in my opinion we need yet another big summer. Bruce needs to decide how he wants us to play because we have no identity on the pitch at the moment.
