I am really disappointed in the team sheet, it was a defend set up and we never ever really tried to show Chelsea what we could play like. A massive mistake in tactics from the first minute, How could we ever defend and hope for a chance of a draw for penalties. I feel robbed of £10 to watch my beloved club sit back and be humiliated. And then when Jolley thought about it in the second half, he tries to speed the forward line up, it was so depressing. I admit that the Chelsea club had it wrapped up by half time. Lampard even put youngsters on and it kept us even worse on defending. Fair play to the lads, they kept to a bad plan, but feel really gutted as a supporter when I know the lads can do better. It was obviously a hard call to get a result, but the plan let us 5,000 supporters down. Its going to be a long trek back for us, knowing we could of done better. But lets put this aside and concentrate now for Saturday. Its a bad hiccup, but maybe we can take the medicine and kick off at the weekend and fight for 3 points. Disappointed but always a Black n White.

7-1 loss against what could be a starting 11 in the Prem. Can't complain too much really we gifted the 6 goals between poor defending and exhausted legs. Greens goal for us was magnificent. Like dicko and Hagrid I was disappointed with our choice of tactics as well. We should of just attacked them from the off instead of being so defensive as that never works. Just look at Lincoln and Newports good run against top sides over the last couple years they came about because they played their football and attacked the opposition we never really did today. Town fans were magnificent you could hear them for almost the enite 90 minutes.

Ridiculous post. Massive gulf in class and budget. Maybe you’re unlucky if you’re Jordan Cook but then we could have lost by more.

Great Town support tonight, who cares about the score.

Lampard didn't take any chances with the team he put out did he.

First time I've been to Stamford Bridge and the ground is impressive but the Chelsea fans weren't, quiet is the word.

We were all over the place until Green hit it to score. After that we looked ok until the penalty. Max Wright looked good when he came on.
The gulf in class is immense.  The way they moved us around and picked us off was awesome if painful to watch. They never eased up and put us to the sword.
Town fans were increadable. The noise that we created until the final whistle was incredible.
A word about Chelsea, the ground, the stewards, the facilities are first class. Lot better than it looks on TV.
Overall a great day out, apart from a lunatic in a BMW who hit our coach!

As said previously, the score is immaterial really, in all seriousness prior to kickoff did anyone really believe we could win. We've been to Stamford Bridge, scored a goal, made anywhere between £120 and £150 grand. Let's enjoy the day, as they don't come around every season, after all we could be in scunny' position.

We were on the coach directly in front of you, didn't see the crash but saw the aftermath.

At least you had a shorter walk to the ground than we did.

Hope it all got sorted.

Yeah definitely  should've gone all out attack coz that way we might have seen a record score.never read so much bollox in my life. Christ we did well to hold them to 7 even playing defensively. They were different class.palace had zaha but they had 6 or 7 who were just as impressive as him. We lost by 6.forest a decent championship side shipped 5 to arsenal last night so lets get a bit of prrspective
