No doubt a message was sent, but frankly I'm at a loss to figure out what it was.
"We're fucked, but we'll make it sorta look like we tried?";
"Our top players had their chance 3 minutes ago and botched it, so I'll go with the hapless bunch and maybe somebody gets lucky and bumps a slump.";
"I don't want the trade bait getting hurt in the last minute."; or
"I gassed my top players and their sucking wind on the bench, so we gotta put sopmebody out there."
Anybody else got any bright ideas?
This script has been played out so many times before the Olympic break, it's to the point where I wonder why I watch anymore. The only wrinkle I saw, IMO, was Burrows actually making plays he didn't when he had his cage on. Still couldn't score, but he got some primo chances courtesy of the twins - and now Daniel's likely out for the season.
Somebody take this team out behind the shed and put this season out of our misery.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.
Hate the League. Live from Riga, bitches...
