Nope, I’m still not panicking.

The Blues slipped to their third consecutive defeat last night, as an Anthony Pilkington goal saw them fall 1-0 to Wigan at the DW Stadium.

One of the early shocks of the night came when the lineup was announced, because it included a league debut for Chelsea loanee Jake Clarke-Salter, which left a couple of fans rather worried before the game had even begun.

And he managed to put in a decent enough shift, in that he wasn’t really called on to do much as the first half sort of dragged on a bit, with few clear cut chances for either side.

In fact if ever there was a tweet that could sum up how dull that first half was, let it be this absolute masterpiece.

The Blues started a little bit brighter in the second half as they looked to bounce back from two consecutive defeats, although not bright enough in the eyes of this fan. Would they be able to find a breakthrough as the game entered it’s final stages?

Turns out there would be a breakthrough, but it wouldn’t come from the Blues, but rather from the hosts as Anthony Pilkington’s shot squirmed under the body of Lee Camp to give the hosts the lead.

Despite a couple of chances falling the visitor’s way, there was to be no breakthrough as the Blues slipped to a third consecutive defeat, and the fans were not happy about it.

  • If the BBC website is accurate, not a single shot on target. The failure to buy another striker will come back to haunt us.

  • Pathetic display. Only Crowley, Dean and Juke worth a mention as usual. Bailey tried hard enough for his 15 minutes. Clotet’s comment of a 0-0 draw is shameful, he really can go as far I’m concerned. Let’s get Hughton back before goes to Stoke, or even Pulis and that’s saying something!!

  • Everything pre-season was geared up for us to play 3 at the back with 2 wing backs with no wingers required, thats why we did not go for Mahoney, that plan was ditched because Clotet did not the courage to see it through so he has huffed and puffed with different formations not really knowing who or what to play and stubbornly refusing to ditch Camp. Trueman should have played all pre-season and Seddon should have been playing too.
