well we went to a fa cup final with this shit tactic then?
We went to a cup final after beating United on pens, that hardly counts does it? Considering some of their kids were playing. Of course, it counts, but you couldn't say Moyes acted like a master-tactician in that.
As for the Liverpool game, Gerrard went off injured and they lost Lucas, sending them down to ten men. Jagielka had Torres in his arse-pocket so they didn't have many who could hurt us.
