I REFER to John Cooper who made a comment in the soapbox column Wednesday 12th May 2021.

First of all I am a great fan of Ralph Hasenhuttl and was the first time I had written into the Echo.

Like most managers even the great Alex Ferguson received criticism from time to time.

I stand by what I said and don’t believe our goalkeepers should be rotated.

Even the Sky Sports pundit criticised the decision when commentating on the Crystal Palace match on Tuesday, so it's not just me.

It makes no sense when you require stability in the back five.

I believe Ralph will continue doing his best and hopefully will be backed by our phantom chairman in the transfer window.

Two new centre backs would be good Ralph.
