I think both of you are batshit insane for suggesting his subs have been 'spot on'. 2nd sub against Brighton while chasing the game was made with 10 mins left. Then 3 more subs in added time. Against Brentford no changes until 4-0 down at half time. Against City just a forced change at 3-0, no tactical change again until 4-0 at half time. In a couple of the wins he sacrificed too many of the front 3 and bought on 2 DMs which pegged us back far too much, against Leicester it almost cost the win with the chance they had last minute.
I'd say only his subs against Arsenal were good but that was mainly because Lego took the bait, made horrible changes and lost the control they had.
Ajax fans warned us about ETH's in-game management and so far it looks like they were correct unfortunately.
Yeah, I'm not holding his lack of subs in his first match with a brand new team against him, or criticizing him for not changing things in a complete write off first half against Brentford. Those are such hypercritical reaches.
Again, criticizing a manager for not making a sub before halftime against City is absolutely ridiculous.
We saw off those games and won. You're now criticizing him for making subs which helped contribute to desired results.
His subs against Arsenal were excellent, and we took the lead immediately after he brought on Ronaldo in that match, which moved Rashford to the left. Lego made additional changes after that which exacerbated our advantage and allows us to score a 3rd.
I'm not sure what you're expecting with the squad he has at his disposal. Our options in attack are thin even when we have a full set and he hasn't had that for the vast majority of the season. In defense he almost certainly would prefer to start Shaw, but he was so unfit and poor to start the season he was forced to start Malacia. I suspect after yesterday, Shaw will get another chance now in the XI starting against Everton, but it's his own fault he lost his spot in the first place.
I would like to see him adapt more in midfield and I discussed that on the pod.
Has he been perfect? No, but even yesterday against Amnesia he was able to tilt the match back to our advantage and wrest back control after a poor first half. Not a high bar, but I've neither seen enough to proclaim an inept in-game manager, or a master of changing things. I've seen much more good in this regard than bad though.
