Fulham slumped to a disappointing 2-1 defeat against Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday.
And it was a result that angered defender Tim Ream.
The American was honest enough to admit that the Whites "didn't play well" and that it "wasn't good enough" against a team that had only won one of their previous seven Championship games.
Oliver Norwood equalised for the visitors after Stephen Warnock had given the home side the lead, but a controversial second half penalty from Lucas Akins gave the Brewers all three points.
And Ream revealed afterwards that Brighton loan man Norwood was more annoyed by a chance he missed than the fine goal that he scored.
Ream told the club's official website: "He strikes a good ball, but before that he should have scored with his left from about six yards out, and he will be the first person to tell you that.
"He was more frustrated with that than he was happy with his goal. We know he can strike a ball and if you give him time and space he can do it.
"It's not even that it didn't go our way, we just didn't play well. When we don't play well and we are off, it gives teams chances to steal points and to come away with all three points.
"We did have a few chances, I think we hit the crossbar in the second half, but our chances weren't clear cut enough and towards the end the accuracy of the passing and the crossing was just woeful.
"There is no way around explaining that so it just wasn't a good day overall for everybody."
