Being a Hatter, at the moment, really is a roller coaster ride, as the game yesterday, against Swansea City proved.

Entering the game, although Luton Town had taken only 3 points from the last 12 available, I was confident that Luton would emerge victories, as the following article – the-cream-will-rise-to-the-top – inferred.

However, it was not to be.

Even though the Hatters lead 3-0, after just 23 minutes, it all fell apart in the second half with our opponents, Swansea City, producing a remarkable comeback to snatch a draw, with the game finishing 3-3.

In fact, to be honest, Swansea could have snatched victory in the second half.

Now I purposely left this article until this morning, I did not want to do anything impulsive immediately after the game.

But now I am calm and composed, but still seething inside a little, I am prepared to say it as it is!

Yesterday, Luton conceded 3 goals to a side who had scored only 4 league goals all season, surely that cannot be good enough.

The result means that Luton have only taken 4 points from the last 15 available with, 3 of the 5 games played being at Kenilworth Road, surely that cannot be good enough.

After a raft of pre-season signings, expectation levels were high, there was even hope of securing a play-off place but now we sit in 13th place, just 3 points off the relegation places, surely that cannot be good enough.

Okay, people make counteract that our squad has been severely hit by absentees, whether it be through injures of pandemic isolation, but I have this fear that when the situation does improve, we could be involved in an early escape to avoid that dreaded trap door.

Our next two fixtures do not exactly fill me with confidence when it comes to collecting points, Bournemouth (a) and Coventry (h), with both teams flying at the moment, represents a tough ask.

Please convince me I have nothing to fear!

Luton – Patience Required When It Comes To This Player

  • What a howler MH. Cornick misses another easy chance which could have been the nail in the coffin for Swansea. Sluga bad handling once again. Still seems unable to control his penalty area? Who is now the the specialist goal keeping coach? Whilst usually a good shot stopper still needs to know when to come for a ball and to produce better quality punches. Why was Berry taken off ? Clark who I rate highly came on but was hardly noticeable. Watching the game this morning no one seemed to want to close down the Swansea players in the second half this led to to the goals scored. Gate numbers are declining and will continue to do so if these poor performances continue.

    • corrective action required before we get on the slippery slope that leads to……well we all know! Could Swansea have come back from 4-0 down, I doubt it very much, victories depend on such fine margins in this division.

  • we have great depth of players in this squad,so lets use them. you know who i think is the weak link,lets give others a chance. i have disbelief at team selection sometimes,but thats what we expect from us fickle fans.we are nothing like wycombe,we are proud luton town supporters.try not to get to negative,it spreads like wildfire.onwards and upwards.COYH.
