London Road, on Saturday afternoon, saw the Hatters torn apart in the first half.
After shipping three goals in that opening forty-five minutes, it was always going to be extremely hard to get anything from the game.
Many Hatters supporters, after the game, described the opening forty-five minutes as the worst they can recall the Hatters playing for several seasons.
Taking to social media after the game, Alan Sheehan offered an apology for the dreadful opening forty-five minutes:
There’s no hiding away from the fact we were nowhere near good enough in the first half today. It is not like us and We all know it and we need to put it right Tuesday night now. ????????

His apology drew several interesting responses from the Luton faithful, with panic not entering the thoughts of anyone, with the supporters rallying behind the team:
Played 3 of the best sides in L1. It's not a great start but no need to panic. Two home games = two big chances to put it right (
Saw us lose at Chesterfield and Port Vale last year and still got promoted. The odd bad day at the office doesn't make us a bad side

With the games we’ve had it was always going to be tough, played well so far apart from the first half today. Today was an off day, almost every team has them. The goals and wins will come

Only 1 poor performance this season, been great to watch so far before today – we'll learn from it but no need to dwell on it.
We always appreciate honesty, Sheez, so thanks for that.
Looking forward to the first clean sheet on Tuesday.

But, looking ahead to the future, the Hatters support are optimistic that things will soon improve:
In contrast to the tough start the next three games should allow us to put 9 points on the board – Southend and Shrews at the Kenny and then Wycombe away – #COYH

Can we put 9 points on the board in the next three games or is that being a touch optimistic?
