|Can't understand (rarely can with Coleman) but there's a list of stand-by players containing a left-back, Eardley, and yet when right-back, Richards, is injured, another left-back, John - not on the list - gets a call. Stand-by list makes no sense anyway as there's no C Davies, Lynch, Walsh, Watkins, A Taylor, Maxwell, Fox, just a bunch who, at present, hardly feature for their clubs.
