LUFC Fans view v Barnsley

Tiny T gives us his usual fans view, this time from the frustrating 3-3 draw with Barnsley.

Schmeichel 5

Not commanding his area as he should, distribution awful. He stood little chance in saving any of the goals.

Lichaj 8 Star man
Raided well down the right and defended well probably the only one who put a shift in.

O'Brien 5
Brought in to add experience and organisation, little of that been shown lately.

Bruce 6
Over worked with those either side of him faltering.

McCartney 3
Looks good when attacking but consistently caught out defending.

Snodgrass 4
At fault for the second goal, not at his best, looked jaded.

Howson 7
Worked hard but to little effect with those around falling by the wayside.

Kilkenny 5
Its taken over two years but he finally put a quality ball in the box and we scored. Again tackled like a fairy without wings, missing for periods.

Johnson 3
Stupidity got him sent off and it changed the game, tackling poor, another missing for long periods

Gradel 7
Like Howson and Lichaj, he got stuck in both up front and at the back, exquisite second goal should have won it.

Becchio 5
Got the equaliser but won little in the air/

Subs
Somma 4

The wrong sub in my opinion as he won't fight for the ball, he doesn't win headers and we were launching it to him.

Watt 4
Little chance to shine and gave the free kick away that led to the third goal.

Summary
Defensively we are a nightmare; concentration levels are poor and led to goals early in each half.
To move out of the wall and turn your back is a schoolboy error, which is how we defend most of the time.
Grayson needs to spend time on the training pitch sorting out this woeful defending, we look capable of scoring at anytime but also look like conceding as well.
We had players arguing. Lets put it down to passion and a bad night at the office.
A friend went with me tonight who does not attend many games and their opinion was that if you look at what we concede its a good job we score a lot as if we didn't we'd be relegation fodder.
Looking forward we didn't lose and its on to Swansea with a dinner time kick off, lets get back to basic's a clean sheet and three points.

Finally - Clattenberg was appalling as a Referee, how does he manage in the Premier League, if Johnson hadn't have started to walk I don't think he'd realised he'd booked him already.

Thanks once again Tiny for your views.
