'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Fans view v Huddersfield

Our resident match analyser for Leedss United home games Tiny T, once again gives us his frank and forthright views on the Leeds United performance.

Ankergren 7

Love him or hate him, he has the jersey. Flaps at crosses but kept us in the game with three outstanding saves and set up the second with a quick long clearance. Get off his back and get behind him.

Crowe 4
A better second half than first but his defensive qualities or lack of them left Bromby and Michalik working overtime.

Michalik 7
Put his body on the line with some last ditch tackles and blocks, for the tallest man on the field still suspect under the high ball.

Bromby 8 Star man
Like Lubo put himself about and tackled like a Trojan, left stranded at times by Capaldi.

Capaldi 3
Tackled like a fairy, defensively had a mare, he is the weakest link goodbye. Neither parker nor White will be worried on this performance no wonder Cardiff allowed him to be cup tied.

Howson 6
Wasted yet again out wide, needs to be in the middle of the park to be more involved.

Doyle 6
Got stuck in but could do with being six inches taller as beaten in the air too often.

Kilkenny 5
Not his type of game as Town snapped at the heels, tackles are only half hearted, and those around me thought he should have been off sooner.

Snodgrass 7
The first goal, and a more determined performance. For me his best game of the season.

Beckford 6
A couple of chances but did not take them, put himself in the right position on the long clearance to knock the ball down for Gradel.

Vokes 5
Toiled away for his stint on the field, but little or no luck, the quality of ball was not always right either.

Subs

Gradel - 5 - Super sub scored again but little else as he rarely saw the ball in the right third of the pitch.

Becchio - 6 - Still coming back and needs more time on the pitch to acquire full fitness.

Ephraim - Not on long enough for an opinion

Though Bromby and Michalik played well Kisnorbo is missed for his organisation and the rollicking`s he hands out when things are not right.

In the Middle its either Howson or Kilkenny as both need to play in the middle and be involved.

Upfront Vokes needs a couple of goals for his confidence.

A game we could have easily lost as Town pulled us apart especially out wide as Crowe and Capaldi had nightmares.

Casper we know hates crosses but nothing could be done as Town crossed at will from either side, both fullbacks need to wise up or ship out. In Casper`s defence he produced at least three quality saves and had a goal assist.

If our strikers had received the quality of delivery that Town delivered we would have won easily.

On a positive note a draw was a fair result as Leeds produced defensive errors to allow Town to score but Smithies in the Town goal handed us ours on a plate, and at 1-0 and 2-1 the song was definitely its your ' Keepers fault '

Thanks once again Tiny, as always no punches pulled.

I've been looking forward to reading this Tiny, I can't disagree with you on any of the players. Think you've got it spot on. I just shaded Michalik over Bromby (but only just)
dazza71
I honestly can't believe we were watching the same game. Whilst I agree with the ratings handed to the full-backs who should both be shot for that horrorshow performance, how you got Bromby as man of the match is anyones guess? Both himself and Lubo did nothing to stop either goal and were both run ragged due to their own failings all match. Beckford frightened the life out of their defence throughout, but without anyone to expose the extra space, his contribution seemed meaningless. Vokes is just a waste of time. His shooting is so poor, that I'd honestly play Showunmi before him. Finally, the correct man of the match was Snoddy. He was like a one man team at times and worked tirelessly in defence and going forward. Without him, our midfield would have looked even more suspect today.

If Eeyor gets back in the side, we'll all be worried, he's bloody useless and an embarassment
Tiny t
Good report. But for Lubo and Bromys stout defending we would have got wiped out. Crowe and Caplaldi were shocking and today looked like free transfer players. The midfield toiled but was unbalanced and never got anything flowing and other than Snodgrass had zero impact. I differ from the report in that i thought Doyle should have gone off rather than Kilkenny who was at least trying to be creative. Vokes...what does Larry see in him, Becchio looked a class better immediately even half fit. Ankergren made several good saves but was back to flapping at crosses but at least made goood contact today with his punches and was left exposed too often. All in all we were lucky to get a draw against a team who passed and moved better than we did.

I think you must have been watching a different game to the rest of us Milky who all agree with the report. If Snodgrass was working so hard why was Capaldi regularly left one on one..
dazza71
Milky did you go to yesterdays game? Was you in the East stand with the sun in your eyes?
King Billy
The Millers will probably be looking at defenders in January - should we leave Capaldi alone then!
