What Was Emerton Thinking?
With Blackburn Rovers trailing 3-2 to Wigan Athletic the last thing that we would have wanted was to have gone down to ten men, so WHAT ON EARTH was Brett Emerton thinking???
At 3-2 down with Rovers having already fought back from 3-0 down thanks to two goals from Roque Santa Cruz we were heavily favoured to complete the comeback (and maybe more weren't we!) but then suddenly Emerton had his moment of madness when he lashed out and rightly picked up his second yellow card, which equalled red!
Even then we managed to equalise with Santa Cruz's hat trick goal but ten men then left us with a MASSIVE job to hold onto this point, but even then we could have had more but for missed chances. Once Wigan went 4-3 up with only ten men and chasing the game it was ALWAYS likely to see us leave gaps at the back and we would be caught again, as we were. Defeat isn't being put down to Emerton, but his moment of madness certainly didn't help matters did it.
