LUFC Fans view v Palace

LUFC Fans view v Palace

Tiny T gives us his usual biased views on the Leeds players performance against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Schmeichel 8
No chance with the goal, stunning save from a free kick and a couple of others he stopped, thought his kicking was not at its best today.

Hughes 3
Out of position for the goal and looked out of his depth defending, got forward at times. He is the weakest link, Goodbye.
Ed- As usual the blinkers can`t come off regarding Hughes.

Bruce 8
Solid at the heart of the defence, helped covering both fullbacks and enhanced his standing for a long run in the side.

O'Brien 8 Star man
Dependable at the heart of the defence. Wholehearted display, broke through several times to put Leeds on the front foot. Splash the cash for a permanent move in January.

McCartney 6
Struggled at times but stuck to his task.

Snodgrass 8
Tackled back to help out Hughes, had the Palace fullback in his pocket at times, he needs to improve his distribution, gave the ball away too easily at times. A hardworking display.

Kilkenny 8
His best display in a Leeds shirt. A couple of Battyesque sliding tackles, unusual for him. Couple of decent attempts at goal as well.

Howson 8
Pushed forward well in the first half, had a goal ruled out for offside but the only one in the ground that thought it was, was the Linesman. He finished the game at right back. Good all-round performance.

Johnson 5
At fault for the first goal and not at his best today, deservedly subbed.

Gradel 6
Saw the best and worst of Mad Max today, another who was rightly subbed.

Becchio 7
Little service to work off in the first half, two in two minutes in the second half saw Leeds take the points. Needs someone to play upfront with him and it showed today when Grayson sent on the Cavalry. Hurry up and sort his contract out.

Substitutes

Sam 7

More incisive than Gradel and better delivery.

McCormack 7
Caused trouble upfront and worked for the three points when in the middle of the park at the end.

Paynter 7
Assisted in turning the game around when we played three upfront towards the end. Lively.


Summary

Grayson threw on the cavalry and it worked, Palace looked rocky when we played three upfront. Right subs at the right time.

The Centre of the defence looks better with each game and we have a strong core through the middle.

Its time for us to give Becchio a strike partner, but which one is the problem. Both Paynter and McCormack look creditable partners and there is also Somma, tough decisions ahead for Grayson.

The crowd today always seemed to sense we would win and drove the team on, best supporters in the land.

Booing, especially one of our own cannot be condoned, its Johnson decision not to accept a new contract. Its no different to anyone of us changing his/her job really and he did have a below average performance today, but he stills wears the White shirt and we should still appreciate his efforts.

Thanks for your views Tiny
