Because we were being over run in midfield. The Aberdeen goal was coming, they missed about 3 or 4 good chances before Lundstram was sent on to try tighten up the midfield. It never worked, but I can see why it was done.
We were already playing to defend a one goal lead. This substitution simply cemented the fact we had no interest in going for a killer second goal.
There had to be a change at half time. Wright should have been off for Sakala for starters.Because we were being over run in midfield.

Yeah I'm not a fan but he definitely managed to put his foot on the ball better than Kamara and Sands, maybe just the extra body in there helped. But not as if we took advantage we could never get up the pitch.I actually thought lundstrum showed more than the other midfielders when he came on, won a few tackles and showed some composure compared to kamara who didn’t step up tonight with players missing
Would be very unfair to blame the guy when every one or most players had a stinker and the manager made mistakes, have to admit i have never once noticed this talent you speak of.He's clearly got talent, but we simply don't have a role for him in our team. Not his fault he was subbed on when he was, but it basically looked like we were admitting that we were playing shite but going to try and see it out
Agreed and has goals to back it up, Wright on the other hand I don’t know what he brings to the team or if he ever will tbh.If lundstram was coming on it had to be for hagi and not Wright. Actually thought lundstram played alright when he came on. Wright should have been taken off for sakala as well, given that in the limited time he’s been on the park he’s shown to be a far better player than Wright.
There was no attaching creativity the entire game. We were rank, low possession, nothing to offer. Scored against run of play. And we want to blame Lunstrum FFS he came in and done his job, especially when he's not getting game time. Ask that considered he done a job. Tactics were on Gio. If Lundstrum was bad then Hagi is finished as he was easily the worst player in the park (goal aside obviously) he was rankChasing a goal and we have three defensive midfielders on, it just killed all attacking creativity.
Kamara, Sands and Lundstram should only be on the pitch at the same time if we are playing the likes of Bayen Munich and we want to park the bus, not when we are playing the likes of Aberdeen and want to score goals.
