LUFC Fans view v Nottingham Forest

Tiny T gives us his usual fans view from the games at Elland Road, this time after the 4-1 win over Nottingham Forest.

Schmeichel 8

He stood no chance with the goal, a world class save to keep the score at 2-1. His distribution is still patchy.

Lichaj 8 Star man
Good in defence and he got forward well, setting up Howson opener.

O'Brien 7
A steady game at the back.

Bromby 8
Shaded by Lichaj for man of the match, a different player since he has come back into the side.

McCartney 5
Got forward well in the second half but his defending is the weak link unsurprising the goal came from his side again.

Snodgrass 7
Better as the game went on and nearly got his name on the score sheet with a shot that hit the bar.

Howson 6
Yet again scored a crucial goal when needed though the first half passed him by.

Johnson 6
Under pressure in the first half but got stuck in trying to turn the tide back.

Bannan 7
The pick of the midfield, industrious and inventive at times

Gradel 5
Though he scored two, should he have been still on the park? Ineffective for most of the game.

Becchio 6
Against two tall Centre backs, he had a tough game, better when the ball was on the deck and scored the all-important second goal.

Subs
Livermore 7

He was lively and an assist for a goal, not bad for a cameo performance.

Kilkenny/Somma not on long enough.

Summary
Forest should have been in front as they enjoyed most of the first half pressure as we backed off and let them boss the midfield.
The sending off turned the tide.

Defensively we were over worked for 40 minutes but some luck and robust defending got us through to Half time.

We got the first with excellent work by Snoddy and Lichaj and Howson ghosted in unmarked to put us in front.

The save of the season at Elland Road, just how did Kasper keep it out?
He was going the wrong way but managed to scoop it over the bar to keep it at 2-1.
We will take the three points gratefully and move on to the Binmen next week.

Footnote
We had Howson 1st scorer and 3-1 win at 95/1 why did Max get his second. Ruined an otherwise perfect day

Thanks once again Tiny for your views.

I couldn't make my mind up between Bromby and O'Brien for Man of the match. I thought Lichaj was caught out of position on quite a few occasions with O'Brien having to cover for him. First half I wouldn't have given anyone outside the back five higher than a five. Bannan is great on the ball, can't remember him actually making a decisive tackle and he was caught ball watching on a few occasions. Start the same next week and Millwall will eat us for dinner.

Good report and pretty much as i saw it. I just made bromby MoM over Lichaj but both played well. We were pants in the first half and didnt play as a team at all. I liked what I saw of Livermore. hes strong and has good control. I would start him next match if hes showiung that in training as well.
erni
Obrien man of match ?? - are you outside your mind ?? - he had a decent 2nd half but was very very poor in 1st 45
simonfire1
Do you mean the first half when our defence was under constant pressure due to lack of a midfield again? O'Brien and Bromby held it together whilst McCartney and Lichaj went walk about.
dazza71
Simon you only ever seem happy and intent on criticising those decsions of others, like Tiny for doing the fans view or people who make comments. Bit of a firestarter I think.
King Billy
Just need to pour plenty of water on him KB
