What a bizarre game yesterday.

First half was bloody awful. Real awful. Apart from a great move, started by one of their mid fielders using his face to head the ball and falling over dazed as a result, which ended in a well taken goal, after an excellent Sawyers cross for Sergi to hit home, it was utterly dire. Burton fans weren't happy the ref hadn't stopped the game, Clough having a right go.
Their first goal was a lesson in why keepers should have someone front and back post. The second goal, two minutes later was a lesson on learning from your first mistake. Then five minutes later they got a third corner and still no one on back post with their big front man lurking. Thankfully that one went to the penalty spot area.
We were rightly booed off at half time by the travelling fans. The midfield were the main problem. Once again the back four were solid, but they can only hold out so long. The sight of Harlee calling the midfield to come closer and help out was there more than once and at the other end Vibe was berating them for some bad supply.
Second half. WOW. What a turn around. Most of us felt Smith should have brought Macca on for Mr Invisible at half time but Smith stayed with the sixty minute plan. Again. What he said at half time must have been incredible though and we turned that round. Some well taken goals and comedy defending at times could have meant if we'd scored five or six second half we could still have said "could have been more" We controlled midfield more, and were pretty dominant at times. However Bentley did keep us in it at three one, early second half with a great save after a one on one and the follow up was sliced wide with the goal gaping.
Incredible scenes for the fans and players celebrating. An incredible change in attitude. How could that have been the same team?
Great to see Mac back. Not my favourite mid fielder but he added something yesterday and was well up for it.

I managed to make it to this one. Crazy game. Great response in 2nd half. Felt a bit sorry for burton fans at the end a really brutal loss for them.

Good effort Roman - spot on summary cb. Just before Macca came on they nearly scored again, he sorted us out and we smashed them after that, could've had 7/8. Someone else nailed it, "the Dean Smith era encapsulated in one game" another said "BFC were the dog & duck 1st half and Barcelona 2nd half" Harlee never hides & the 2 amigos will be the difference between a bottom end battle and mid table optimism. Great scenes with Sergi & 300 odd bees at the station after, love that kid.

Days like that are why we love football, and hate it at times.....great turnout of faces too.

Sergi rocked up at Burton station alone after the game CB. Think he was off to Liverpool or to see family. About 300 bees still there mobbed him & had a sing song together. You'll find vids all over social media. Great scenes & a top top lad.

Him and Jota absolutely love this club. He was very keen to come back here and didn't really want to leave
Just seen Billy's video of it. Great stuff.

I reckon that the reason they love this club is encapsulated in Billy's video. I have always felt that our fans were special and the film demonstrated that perfectly. Imagine you are a 19 year old living abroad and then you get a reception like that. Magic!
