I thought that if Henriquez had come on for the last 10mins or so we could have nicked it, especially with the quality of balls that were being put into the box from Maloney and stam. Bar Di santo arriving just too late to get on the end of Maloney’s cross properly there were no players willing to get into the box and take a gamble. That is the annoying part but with hindsight I guess a draw is a fair result !

All well and good, but who would you have taken off?[/quote]

The fat lad out on the left ! I would have brought on Henriquez instead of Macca ! All the action was down the right after fat lad went off ![/quote]
Yes, but if you’d taken the fad lad off, and put Henriquez on the left, he wouldn’t have been in box. Or if he was, there’d have been nobody on the left!

Considering we’d already scored two in the half and were by far the better team, under the circumstances I think the team was fine the way it was.[/quote]

Di Santo could have pushed out wide ( He does quite a lot anyway ! ) Henriquez would have provided the fresh legs that more than likely would have got on the end of Maloney’s cross. I just think that a young lad eager to prove himself would have been like a Jack Russell after a rabbit and would have given us the injection that we needed to finish Stoke off. With fat lad off the pitch Macca didn’t really figure and I think Di Santo could have drifted in from the left when needed just for the last 10 mins ! We will never know but I think Stoke were definitely there for the taking in the latter part of the game.
