I wanna start off by saying that i'm not a writer at all and i apologize if this is badly written. I would never consider writing a fanpost as i read all of them, but like i said before i am just not a writer. My point is very simple, i know that as a fan anger can takeover specially in those moments like this last game against wigan which should have been a victory based on the talent level, but we just came out flat.
Now to the main point, this was not AVB's Fault at all, he played all his cards in distinct moments where the game required it :
kalou's substitution for oriol was made to provide more help for the drogs upfront and also add more pace. At that point we were dominating possesion and whatever little came out of them it was coming through the left hand side with victor moses, so no need to reinforce the middle.
second substitution came as obi mikel for juan mata. There is two thoughts on this move, first off as we lack creative players (for those of you that remind us every minute) we need to preserve what we have and we have a tough game in tottenham next fixture. It would have been crazy if mata would have come off for torres, but no, avb made the right decision we were winning the game and wigan had just brought in two strikers.
third substitution came as malouda for sturridge. Again there is the tottenham factor plus the fact that malouda is a more defensive minded winger than sturridge. Again no problem with this.
Now to finish this, It is clear that we lack depth as all you all know by now, there is also a need for some creativity specially in the middle of the field * (by that i mean somebody that likes to roll the ball and does not suffer from crossitis)
So please folks keep this in mind before you start blaming AVB, he has to deal with a 50 mil flop (so far) an aging hierarchy, and a lack of depth. So back off (or ill cut you!!!) .......jk.......and again my apologies if its badly written
