Yes, we’re still going on about last night. Hard not to – it was our chance to go 12 clear of the Dons and we failed. Horribly.
But one thing stood out (well actually a few did) last night which simply had ourselves and we believe 99% of the support scratching their heads:
On 90 minutes, needing a goal, Stevie withdrew Ryan Kent and brought Nikola Katic on.
Now, we love big Niko as much as anyone, regulars will know we’re massive admirers of the Croat.
But when you’re desperately seeking a goal, your secret weapon is unlikely to be bringing on a third defender and taking off the most potent attacker you have.
Anyone absolutely at a loss to explain why Stevie did this?
We initially reckoned it was to provide an aerial attacking threat at set pieces, but that’s a stretch and a really stupid reason to bring on a defender – there is no guarantee you’ll get any. But in open play, you need your attackers, and to bring Kent off made absolutely zero sense, even if his performance wasn’t spectacular.
Even less sense was bringing on Katic.
No, this is one we’ll hand over to you lot – because we have no idea.
