Earlier today, reflecting on what I consider to be two points lost, rather than a point won, against Huddersfield Town, I asked a question I thought would have been out of the equation this season.
Could Luton Be Relegated?
followed an article that tackled the same subject matter – luton-are-we-in-danger-is-the-question.
It would really be heart-breaking if Luton were to suffer relegation but it is something that has featured heavily on social media following the final whistle yesterday, something the following posts illustrate perfectly:
Hate to be doom and gloom but we are in a relegation battle now. We need to start scoring and defending better or else we will be sucked straight into the relegation zone. Why Jones never brought on Adebayo I have no idea. But we move, onto Birmingham. COYH!! 🧡🧡

Slowly creeping down the league table.

Keep dropping points we will be staring relegation in the face. NJ has to make more tactical subs sooner in the 2nd half of games otherwise it will be more dropped points

The rot has set in. Does Mr Jones actually know that you can make a substitution before the 75th minute? #SleepwalkingTowardsRelegation

In the above comment the #SleepwalkingTowardsRelegation has a certain irony about it because that is precisely what could happen.
But another bone of contention amongst those that dabble in social media was that of the lateness of the substitutions Nathan Jones made.
After boosting his attacking options, in the January transfer window, the support appears critical of the gaffer, as the following show:
Not good enough at all. Nathan needs to make subs sooner.

Subs far too late, do we not even trust Adebayo with 10 mins to go 🤦🏻♂

The last one echoes my thoughts precisely.
But rather than finish on a tide of negativity, I thought I would end with this post that has an air of positivity about it that I can only admire:
We’re also in a play off battle going off of the points we have. It’s just a tight league
