Re: Senior players 90 min run out

About as good as it's going to get for Crouch for me. A poor, desperate signing who belongs in a different era. Vydra, I suspect, will be hoping to move on and I can fully understand why when he's seeing a 38 yr. old getting at least some game time ahead of him.

Even so, we switched off and it has happened against City with the quick free kick. We do need to more aware at times of where the opposition players are. I think had the throw been taken from the correct place there is no way it would have reached Kane. But you are right, we were caught flat footed.
