LUFC Fans view v Swansea City

LUFC Fans view v Swansea City

Another different name in the hot seat for this game. This time it`s season ticket holder and regular away supporter Paulj82 who gives us his fans view from the home win over Swansea City.


Distribution awful, that's why he only gets a 7 and not a 9. Made two crucial saves, played ok, but like I say, distribution needs looking at.

Looked composed in defence and also going forward, got caught out of position for the goal but made a good few timely late tackles.

The full 4 points are for a last ditch tackle, why does Grayson insist on playing him? It was his fault for the goal; he should have stayed on his feet and got the ball out of play. So frustrating, he will cost us points and at the end of day he will cost us a position or two.

Him and Kisnorbo at back will be just great. He's been great and was covering again today. Glad he signed up.

1 for first half, .7 Overal,l have to give 5 for second half, out of sorts and Dyer had him on toast in the first half. He was out of position and threatened little going forward. Second half a different person totally, got forward well and was excellent at getting back, a very tidy tackle towards the end which could have ended in the back of our net. His best game in a Leeds shirt.

So greasy at times, could have and should of been more comfortable in last six minutes or so if he would have passed to Somma or McCormack. He tries to do too much.

Best we not talk about his first 40 minutes, he looked like he`d started a new job, one good effort against bar. He grew in confidence with Kilkenny and Howson at side of him. A very good goal.

First half not the best, as much as I like the guy. I was slightly worried as he isn`t the guy for the defensive role. Faye will be, Kilkenny grew in confidence in second half and was the man wanting the ball all the time as usual. He looked good like the other central midfielders in second half.

Howson..8 Star Man
yes you read correct. Growing from strength to strength again, looks stronger and looks hungrier. He was running his socks off today, well done lad.

Did some ok touches but not very effective today as Swansea had most of the possession.

Tried hard as usual and deserved his goal. I'm not 100% sure, but was possibly lucky to stay on pitch as was De Vries (Swansea keeper) you will have to see highlights why. Becchio slid in caught De Vries and the keeper chucked the ball at Becchio from a yard out.

Dropped to the bench, not sure why? Looked good when he came on, he got back and forward very well, a brilliant player.

Not much chance to shine, could have scored had Gradel passed to him Somma went mental at him.

Same as Somma really, looked good with movement. Again, same as Somma had chance to score had Gradel passed.

At the end of the day a very good three points off a very good Swansea team. They had a lot of the ball and patience was the key. Hopefully more points to come this week from Barnsley and Donny.

Marching on together to the premiership?

What do you all think? A top 6 place is very realistic for us this season.
