Coleman admits he got it wrong!

Coleman admits he got it wrong!

Fulham manager admits he got it totally wrong against Blackburn at the weekend and keeper Antti Niemi will be out for up to a month after undergoing surgery on a knee injury which is a huge blow.

Niemi was replaced by Jan Lastuvka in the 2-0 defeat at Blackburn and Fulham boss Chris Coleman said: 'Antti needed an op. He had cartilage floating around.'

Lastuvka, on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk, had a baptism of fire in his first as Blackburn secured their first win in seven league games thanks to goals from Shabani Nonda and Benni McCarthy.

Coleman said: 'It was difficult for him but I thought he was okay. But we were tired. I changed the shape of the team against Blackburn and it never worked.'

After the superb game against Arsenal midweek (who slaughtered Tottenham at the weekend with a large helping hand from the ref!!!)How did Coleman get it so wrong?

Nice to see a manager hold his hand up, at least he shows some class.
