    Rowett and substitutions

    There has been much written about this elsewhere on the net and the continual subbing of Vydra has led to some actually saying that this is a sign that he is poor and GR doesn't like him much.

    The same people seem to forget that GR picks him to start again, the very next match.

    Much is made of this being a squad game these days and that rotation is necessary with games coming "thick and fast".

    I mean, has Vyds actually played a full 90 this season? Has GR decided that, rather than rotate players out of the side to keep them from going stale, he will sub them off to keep them fresh while giving their replacements game time and thereby keep them (reasonably) happy?

    I think that this is a ploy GR is utilising.
