E-MAIL From Billy Bullens
I read a report (click here) on your website a few days ago that David Moyes said he was letting people down with the performances and he was limited with the changes he could make. Well I have to question David Moyes' changes yesterday.
It was a remarkable change he made at half time. And I wasn't the only one who thought so. Most people around where I was sitting couldn't believe that Phil Neville was the man to replace Tim Cahill and reading most of the people making comments on the site had the same feeling.
One fella close to me mentioned that Phil replaced Tim to be the Captain on the pitch. I'm not too sure about that one.
For fifteen minutes we had our best midfield player in Fellaini pushed up front. It is clear the big man is suited better in the middle of the park. So in effect the sub was Phil Neville for Fellaini in the midfield.
It seems to me that David Moyes against the lesser teams wants to keep it tight and then go for it in the last third of the game. Once Jelavic came on after the hour we played a more positive game.
The point my rant is making is Moyesy wasn't limited with the changes he could have made. Drenthe, Gueye, Jelavic and Anichebe were all available and would have been more positive than Phil Neville. Don't forget we were playing the team rooted to the bottom of the table. I think that substitution gave Wigan a lift they didn't deserve.
I know the fans haven't got all the information on why things happen but wouldn't it be refreshing for the fans to receive an explanation of why things happen they don't understand.
