I agree with all this. It's hard to know what was going on with Anthony in terms of his attitude or whatever but the guy can play in defence.Well, Johnson was sh*t. Got a few cheap touches when the Pies started tailing off, and made some absolute howlers, but people will point to his 17 possessions and say it is the best he has played in weeks. Great.
The real depressing thing about this game is that it exposed how bad the coaching has been all season. Anthony offers more in defence than Johnson (and probably most positions). Spoils, attacks the contest, uses the ball well. One has played three games, the other 21.
Our midfield has been sh*t all season, but this is probably our worst on paper midfield lineup, and it goes out and matches the league leaders in two key midfield stats.
