But he didn't, he got booked by a braindead referee for a perfectly good challenge. The card was out before Sweenz, quite understandably, went off on one.Still not a good look for the captain to get himself booked for dissent and not something that happened too often when Matt Taylor was in charge.
All the tactics in the world doesn't help individual errors and running on empty. We need the injured players back to freshen things up as much as anything.He did implement his own changes and tactics though. He started with the usual team and formation but why wouldn't he as on the whole it's worked this season.
He changed from a back 3 to a back 4, dropped Sparks to left back, took Harper off and put MJ on and moved Kite into midfield and we then won the second half.
The disappointing thing wasn't the team selection or tactics it was the all round flat performance, no spark, too many off performances.
Weve conceeded 8 goals in 2 games and Diabate, Grounds, Stubbs can't come back soon enough.
No manager can be held responsible for :-All the tactics in the world doesn't help individual errors and running on empty. We need the injured players back to freshen things up as much as anything.
First goal today, the wall disintegrated. Second goal, not first to the second ball in the area (and was offside). Third goal, gave ball away on half way line and Caprice chose not to close the player down allowing a free shot from the edge of the area. Fourth goal, no challenge again leading to a free shot and no one on the rebound after a decent save. To be fair a good finish from a tight angle, the only place it was getting past Jamal was high into the roof of the net.
I doubt that was what was asked for tactically before the game. We just didn't perform.
