It's far from over and everyone at Burnley has to remember that. Cardiff were in disarray until they beat a pathetic West Ham team last week. Southampton beat Spurs to reverse their fortunes after losing to Cardiff! Take today's poor loss in isolation. #twitterclarets

Keep the faith. Not the result we expected after the red card. The show must go on. #utc #twitterclarets

In a season that has been more bad than good, we may have just started to circle the drain. #twitterclarets

Point would’ve been ok. Disaster. Particularly the manner of it. Not getting the decision then soft goal from a corner. Also against ten men.

What’s the point of starting with two wide men and then playing narrow? Start with Crouch, replace Bardsley with Lowton, give Brady the day off, play wide and have a go!

Really disappointing result against 10 men. Needed to win this to ease the pressure a little. Two stonewall penalties not given but didn’t have enough quality in the final third. Setting up a massive game against Cardiff if we don’t pick up points against Wolves and Bournemouth.

Masters of our own downfall. Tarky and Brady terrible. Cork not much better. No urgency when attacking is also worrying. 9 times out of 10 we always let them get back into position.

As angry as I am had we been given what was a fairly blatant penalty we could well have won that game. First half was turgid from both teams, failure to register one attempt on goal in the 2nd half is just not good enough. 9 goals conceded in 90th minute or later says it all.
