Maybe we would have been 0-3 down if we started with Kuzmanovic? It is easier for attacking minded subs (ala Kuz and Jovetic) to run the play when defenders are getting tired.This was pathetic and Viola could have won if they started Kuzmanovic, Pazzini, among others.
:howler:Darragh, I would say Melo's second card was 50-50, but above all i would say the first one was undeserved. Osvaldo's yesterday performance was the best after like 55th minute, when he got substituted by Jovetic. And Zauri, well let's say he was slightly better. But I hope Comotto gets ready soon.
I think the direct red was a bit hard. He basically just ran into the path of Poulsen who kicked his leg. Possibly a bit reckless, but I almost never seen a situation like this. Let me say again, Poulsen was the one kicking Melo as he cleared the ball.Just some questions for those whose internet did not die on them. Did Melo deserve the red/second yellow??? Did Osvaldo continue to be missing for most of the game and did Zauri get any better? (as he couldn't get much worse).
