The tragedy is – this was nowhere near our best team.
Manny back as CB, Rowe to RB (please!), drop Hackney (if at all possible), Beestin AND Perry (I know – not ideal).
Those changes would make a huge difference.
This stinks of mismanagement. The team structure was destroyed and genuine attempts must be made to restore it to the previous dizzy heights of adequacy.
Yesterday was like having only eight or nine men on the pitch. Little wonder so many players ended up with shocking marks.
BTW – great use of the marking system, Samways. That’s how it should be. Really captured the essence of what happened. (Not his fault but I could not have given Millen as high as a 3.)
