It is the morning after the night before and there is an air of disappointment doing the rounds.

Am I the only one who finds losing to a late goal harder to take?

Even more so when I am still debating whether the goal Cornick scored should have been allowed.

For most of the game, at Ewood Park, the Hatters matched Blackburn Rovers and could have taken, at least, a share of the spoils.

But it was not to be, instead a defensive lapse cost us dearly, something that clearly irritated Nathan Jones with the boss being reported by The BBC as having remarked in his post-match interview:

“This is a difficult side to play against, but they’ve hardly had a chance. We’ve limited them and defended absolutely brilliantly against them, then we’ve switched off and you can’t do that at this level.

“We got punished and that makes me feel physically sick. I can’t believe what’s happened – the performance, the energy levels, the work-rate – everything they gave me was superb.

“If you take 10 seconds of madness out of the game I’m giving you a different interview now. It’s just killed 90-odd minutes of magnificent work.”

Indeed, it did, and the disappointment is reflected on the social media sites with the following comment illustrating that point perfectly:

But to be brutally honest, I am not a fan of time-wasting, or game management as they call it these days, I refer attacking as the best form of defence.

However, once again, our inability to score has cost us dearly, as the following post points out:

Ah! The officials!

For a second week on the bounce, we have had a dud set, last week they could not count how many balls were on the pitch, at Stamford Bridge, and this week the debatable offside decision cost us dearly.

I think I may have mentioned that these dodgy decisions balance themselves out over the course of a season, but now I am not so damned sure!
