In the cold (or warm) light of day it hurts and the missed opportunity is absolute gut wrenching heartbreak for me and other fans.

But also the players. Thinking about the players and the current situation, I think circumstances are more to blame than lack of effort. I have been absolutely wretched at work (from home) for the last month during lockdown, it has been a struggle. The last thing I could face would be a life defining once in a career opportunity after 100 days of no lockdown.

So I think it is commendable the players played these two games when many people, including some on here, were against the whole idea. Yes the performance was unforgettably and shamefully awful, but I still believe it is commendable. I had a close relative who contracted Covid-19 at work (they are fully recovered so all ok) so I can understand the concerns of Reuben and Tozer and others given the personal/health circumstances in their household before the game. Again, commendable when many are scared to go outside or get within two metres of any one.

I am not excusing the performance, and I am by no means over it or feeling any worse about it. Just felt it was important to say it was commendable of the players and I appreciate the effort made by them and the Club to play these games, ultimately for our benefit.

Agreed. I can't recall being so affected by a football match before but I'm hoping these feelings will ease with time. I can't imagine what it must be like for the players.

We have often suffered disappointment following Ctfc over the years , but as you commented this recent result has been the most devastating of any in our history.As an older fan it hurt even more than any defeat by our one time local rivals Glos. and that was unbearable though thankfully a rare occurrence.
