Was it my fault? Did I put the mockers on Easter when, last week, I published an article recalling the worst Easter I can recall?

In the article – the-worst-easter-i-can-recall – I recalled an Easter, back in the 1970’s when the Hatters were heavily beaten, away from home, by Derby County and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Easter of 2021 will not be remembered with the same horror of the one I focussed on but defeats at Derby County and at home to Barnsley are still difficult to swallow.

Those dreams of a top-10 finish now look to be just that, dreams.

Naturally, after two defeats on the bounce, social media was alive with people keen to have their say and express their views.

Most were critical of the performance given yesterday, with the following illustrating the point perfectly:

It is, I am afraid, hard to disagree with those three supporters, but, perhaps, another post sums it up a little better:

While others are of the opinion that hitting that magical 50-point target early has had an adverse effect on team performance:

But could the two Easter defeats be part of a master plan?

Could there be an ulterior motive?

One poster suspects that if Luton accumulate too many points this season then improving on that total next season could be a challenge too far:

Or perhaps, in times like these, we should all remember one thing, as pointed out by a Barnsley supporter:

Perhaps we should all be drinking to that and be thankful we are not in the same mess we were in last season!

  • Morning mh, well after yesterday’s furore by some fans and njs observations about some players thinking its OK to relax now. Here’s a thought should Nathan now look to our young players coming through maybe give perraria a go Morrell maybe tq addy an beckworth. See how they perform. If the first tamers are not performing maybe it’s time to give them a wake up call. Why continue to play rea his confidence has deserted him. Pearson an Bradley are poor but we don’t have anyone else to replace them.

    • good points Chris, Nathan’s selections in the remaining games could give us a view as to what to expect next season.

  • Hi all, while I see the reasoning of throwing some youngsters in, if we get a couple more bad results while still on 50 points it could all go pear shaped very quickly and some on here will be calling for njs head again…. Let’s get 53/54 points asap, then look ahead to next season..locks is out for rest of the season so we will have to persevere with pearson/Bradley for now, much as many may hate it…. end of the day, it hasn’t been only defenders that have let us down, we all know it’s lack of goals that has been a big part in this season…..Let’s go out and kill the season by winning on Saturday….

  • Hi Alan, I should have clarified I meant gradually one at a time not all at once. Also having seen perraria,’s performance’ s I think we should give him a go now as he has played prem football an msl so I think he’s worth the risk an offers something different up front

  • Get ya chris…I would gamble playing collo Adebayor and corninck Saturday. Get the win then last few games have look at a few with next season in mind…lot of people saying pell should go, I like him, i would keep him, not 1st choice, but keep him as cover…pearson/ Bradley conundrum? Who knows keep one again as cover.. but I think locks, Naismith, osho are the central defenders to go with, also potts can play there too , when fit… if we don’t bring another in….
