'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Reaction to Luton defeat

Both managers were talking about their goalkeeper's after Luton Town's 3-1 win over Coventry City on Saturday afternoon.

Former Sky Blues trainee Dean Kiely, on loan to the Hatters from Portsmouth, made a number of good saves in the match and earned the praise of boss Mike Newell afterwards.

'We re-signed him on Friday for another month - though obviously now they can take him back at any time,' said the Luton manager.

'Dean has told us he wants to get away from Portsmouth.

'It might be beyond us to take him permanently. A lot of things would have to happen if we were even to be in contention to take him.'

Opposite number Micky Adams meanwhile faces a 'keeper crisis after Luke Steele, signed on an emergency loan prior to the game, suffered an injury.

Adams said: 'Their keeper got man of the match and rightly so, but that's about as well as we've played away from home this season in the first half.

'Goalkeeper Luke Steele is a doubt for Boxing Day with a gash on his knee.

'Andy Marshall is due to go in for an operation but we might have to cancel that for now.'

you can talk about bad luck as much as you want but facts are that we are not good enough and therefore Adams is not good enough. That was entirely his team out there again...and again they are found to be woefully short. Very poor.

you do wonder whether this is as far as the team can now go. The loan signings are poor, Mackenzie is not worth the money we shelled out for him and maybe it is time for a re-think. The board also have to take ownership for the McSheffrey sale when you consider he has had noone come near replacing him, especially the goals that have gone. Where has all the optimism gone?
