No longer at risk of being mistaken for a Scouser

Rightly? NoMate I was there. Literally everyone around was shouting abuse at Martial coming on for Hojlund. We could see Martial and Mejbri were about to come on and everyone assumed it would be 2 of the Eriksen/McT/ Casemiro going off.
Casemiro went off first for Mejbri and I think everyone expected Eriksen's number to go up but when it transpired he was taking off Hojlund for Martial, you could see the anger and disappointment all around. Part of it was of course due to Hojlund coming off but it was also directed at bringing on a useless lump of clay in his place.
It would have been acceptable if Martial was bought on for a midfielder, but to bring off a dynamic forward in lieu of Martial rightly angered people.
