LUFC Fans view v Watford

LUFC Fans view v Watford

Tiny T gives us his usual fans view after the game at Elland Road following another disappointing performance, this time against Watford.

Schmeichel 4

At fault for the first goal and didn't command his area, his distribution was also weak.

Lichaj 7 Star man
Solid enough and stuck to his task well, unlike the rest of the defence.

O'Brien 4
All at sea, never looked happy all game.

Bromby 4
Again poor, too many aimless balls forward, let the ball bounce too many times putting him under needless pressure.

McCartney 3
Why do we persist with him, premiership your having a laugh. Weak defending, offered little going forward.

Snodgrass 5
Occasional glimpses but no quality ball to work off.

Kilkenny 3
Wants to be a centre half at times as he needs to grow, learn to tackle and head the ball.
He`s too easily brushed aside also poor delivery from set pieces, as he cannot beat the first defender.

Johnson 5
Put himself about, wasteful at times and nearly scored with a header.

Howson 4
Wasted wide left, needs to be more involved.

Gradel 6
Ran the front line on his own for much of the first half, less involved in the second, needs to get his head up more. Needs to learn the offside rule!

Somma 2
Missing in action, what little he did.

Substitutes
Becchio 7
For the short period he was on, scored one and missed one but we started to get on the front foot, should have started.

Bannan 6
Better delivery and it got us in front, livelier than the player he replaced.

McCormack
Not on long enough

Grayson 4
Not often I do this but he got it wrong today.

Referee
A waste of space and with his linesman they missed a certain penalty. Why do we get bad Refs?

Summary
Team set up was wrong for me today, we needed a character building performance and got a weak lettuce.
We got in front and gave it away again thankfully an own goal came to the rescue.
Its time for Grayson to admit he's got defenders who aren't up to it, next season we need a whole back four who know how to concentrate for the whole of the match and give us a solid platform to work from.
Communication - Do they know each other or do they only meet five minutes before Kick off?
The third worst defence in the League says it all.

Looking forward Reading next and Hull and Forest on our tails, we need to tough out the next four games to make the playoffs.

Thanks for your thoughts Tiny
