Default The Subs Bench

After the 2-2 draw vs. Aldershot, where Keates didn't make a substitution until the 86th minute I'm wondering, why does Keates seem so reluctant to use his substitutions.

I've been noticing it a lot lately, today and in the 1-1 draw against Halifax mainly. Subs are there for a reason and 4 minutes + stoppage time isn't enough time to make a significant impact 9 times out of 10.

I feel that a few of our draws in 2018 would have been wins if we used our bench properly too.

It’s all down to lack of experience from Keates. He should have changed it much earlier, but due to maybe unwisely keeping faith with the players on the field or due to simply not having the knowledge and wherewithal to make a positive impact.

It’s absolutely infuriating, but he’s a new manager so we have to give him the chance to learn from his mistakes.

It seems he doesn't like to disrupt the flow of the team, which is fine if it brings success but now needs reviewing.

Deverdics created some of our best opportunities from his dear ball deliveries. Barmy to suggest that he should've come off.

No point having subs if you ain't gonna use em. Send em out on loan to save on wages.

Does that make up for the fact that he did absolutely nothing else?

Expect pointing. He's cracking at pointing.

I'd have taken him off at half time.

Should have brought Ainge on for the last 20 to give him a decent chance to make an impression, should also have brought on Raven at some point if only for fresh legs.
