But nothings been said so I guess it was just a strange decision.

Looking back at it though, Boro were playing much better and certainly looked more like scoring. Yes they still ended up getting a goal with Butt on the field, but there's nowt wrong with trying to play more defensively when you're getting caught on the counter every time we failed to pass to a black and white shirt.

Butt came on, and things changed. I mean, it started badly, Butt gave a free kick away, and they scored. Not Butt's fault cause it should still have been defended, but it was not good because the reason we brought him on was to defend and we conceded straight away.

But after that it worked well. Apart from the goal, Lovenkrands wasn't really offering anything, other than the luxury of him being able to finish anything we created. But we weren't creating anything so he was wasted. We changed our style to a more direct one and it worked.

Butt came on and to be fair, he played well. I don't know why people are slagging him off cause he came on and controlled things for us. Didn't dominate the midfield like, but he'd get the ball, slow things down and allowed us to build more meaningful attacks. And it also allowed Nolan to push forward with Carroll and we ended up getting the equaliser.

That Carroll's shite an' all mind Wink Smile

Tongue in cheek mate,

You cant say you enjoyed the 4-3 at liverpool or the 2-1 at Blackburn results. Finish 2nd was a bitter pill to take after being so far ahead.
