And so it ends.

A collective sigh of relief must have been emitted from everyone concerned with the club when the final whistle sounded at Ewood Park yesterday to draw a close on a season which ended on as depressing note as any in recent times.

Stupidly, I actually fancied us to get something out of yesterdays game and it speaks volumes about our recent woes that we slumped to another defeat against a side who had already sealed their place in Europe and were without four of their best players.

But no, a disappointing 2-0 reversal which saw an error from David James to gift Rovers the opening goal and David Sommeil embroiled in a spitting row.

Pearce has begun his review of the season already, with a series of face-to-face meetings with the squad, in which it is believed several players will be shown the door.

We actually only finished nine points above the relegation places and it is perhaps fortunate that we got to the 40 point 'safety mark' as early as we did. Pearce now faces a big task over the summer, and perhaps the biggest will be ensuring that the low confidence and poor performances seen over the final quarter of the season are not carried over to the start of next season.
