Still devastated! Must learn from the experience! Time to rest the mind, chill out and get ready for next season!From @JackButland_One on Twitter:

It says it all how we got here, the way we played, the structure and organisation we had.
There is no-one else to blame [but the players]. It is the same group of players - it us that have not performed.
For a legend of the game like Stuart Pearce, it is difficult to apologise, but there is no-one else to blame but the players.
We were on the pitch, I hope he stays in the job.
He works extremely hard and does everything necessary to make sure we are successful and gives us all the right tools. I really do hope he stays.
