Andy Carroll has reflected the views of many fans who criticised the second half tactics that allowed Swansea to take a point from today’s game.
Many voices were raised on the ClaretandHugh forums complaining that we had adopted a safety first policy at the Liberty Stadium – jjust as we had appeared to against Everton last Tuesday evening.
Carroll admitted that exactly what had happened saying: “I think we dropped off a lot in the second half. They came out raring to go and, being away from home and 1-0 up, we didn’t want to concede.
“We might have dropped off too much and put the pressure on ourselves, but we did deserve to win the game.
“The lads were saying after the game that they didn’t really do anything dangerous to us apart from score the goal. It’s always hard to come away to Swansea, though, so we’ll take a point and move on to the next game.”
