Manager Ian Holloway has issued an apology to the fans following our five one drubbing by Middlesbrough.

With Boro being four nil down at half time, despite some improvement in the second period it was still our heaviest loss of the season and the worst performance our gaffer believes we have put in since he joined the club.

Speaking to the official site following the game a hurt and deeply disappointed manager explained.

‘It’s the worst I’ve felt in football. It was one of those days where everything that could go wrong did go wrong. I’m bitterly disappointed for the fans and the players. I’m not going to blame any of them because it’s my fault. I take full responsibility because I’m the manager.’

Holloway goes on to say that he has a lot of thinking to do now about things because he knows he has a big job here, but he’s proud to do it and he’s determined to make it work, but that certainly was not good enough and should not be expected of a Saturday.

‘But I do apologise because that just wasn’t good enough. Did they mean to do it? No. Did they get things wrong? Yes. But they know what this means to everybody – believe me.’

With the televised game up next Friday against Brighton and Hove Albion, Holloway also said all we could do now was dust ourselves off, work from scratch in training and go back to the ‘drawing board’ to ensure we stick together and that we get it right at the next time of asking to make up for this disappointment.
