Starting Alcaraz wasn't a mistake. When you look at his recent performances he earned his place, especially with Stones just coming back from injury. However not having the bollocks to take him off was Martinez's fault. And how the fuck Barry can start AND get 90 minutes is beyond me, Gibson must be livid. Coleman was non-existent but I'm not sure who could have replaced him.
After the performance at Newcastle, I just can't wrap my head around why Bobby would change the side as much as he did. The referee was shite but that wasn't why we lost.
On another day we would have gone through, if we had been a bit luckier with the woodwork, or more decisions had gone our way but it feels like with another manager we would have gone through regardless of luck.
