The match stats are unbelievable. We are way behind on every count.... except fouls.
Can someone have a word in Cooper's ear re subs. He only seems to sub early when we are either 2 or 3 goals to the good, and then uses subs to give some players a little game time. Doesn't he have an understanding of using subs in a tactiocal sense to reinvigorate the team when some players are clearly banjaxed?
Jesus, Manning on with two mins of extra time left, what the f?
I'm surprised that no one is backing Manning for a starting spot. His all round game was very good against Forest, and his first time cross for Cullen's second was sublime. Both Manning's and Routledge's accurate and early crosses were the sort that retreating defenders hate. So much more effective when getting the ball into the box quickly, first time, rather than the slow build up that allows the defence to get themselves organised. There's a place for both approaches, but speed on the break doesn't half unsettle defences.
