There is no doubting that defeats are painful, with expectancy levels high, pre-match, losing can be a gut-wrenching feeling.
In the immediate aftermath of the sounding of the final whistle, there is a natural inclination to find a scapegoat.
Yesterday, with the Hatters never being at the races as Stoke City humbled them 3-0, if you sift through the plethora of comments left on social media, it appears that Glen Rea fits the bill, as the following posts illustrate:
Rea is so hopeless. Never seen a player give the ball away more. Rest of the defence looks pretty shocking without Lockyer, could do worse than recall Osho and Kioso

They are not very pleasant reading; in fact, they make for disgusting reading. I am all for constructive criticism, but the ones selected, like the ones I did not select, are just as spiteful.
Everybody is entitled to their view, but I belong to the group, who I hope are in the majority, who respect those who wear our shirt and whilst they do, they will get my 100% backing.
With that in mind, I’ll finish with the following comment I found on social media:
If Rea starts Tuesday, I’ll start supporting Wycombe
