LUFC Fans view v Burnley

LUFC Fans view v Burnley

Tiny T gives us what will most probably be his final fans view of the season after Leeds 1-0 win over Burnley at Elland Road.

With Forest also securing a big victory later in the afternoon, Leeds chances of the play offs now seem almost certainly over.

Schmeichel 8
Stunning face save in the first half, dealt with the high ball and commanded his area well, distribution also good.

Lichaj 7
Stuck to his task well keeping Eagles relatively quiet, lets hope we can get him back for next season.

O'Brien 7
Performed well against Iwelumo, his best game for a while.

Naylor 6
Some decent enough tackles but got caught the wrong side on a number of occasions, also for someone of his experience he left a big hole alongside O`Brien.

McCartney 4
Yet again the weak link, Johnson had to help out on numerous occasions.

Gradel 7
Worked hard on the right and always willing to be involved, needs to work on his delivery though.

Howson 8
Good all round performance from Jonny, got stuck in from the start, defended well and got forward.

Kilkenny 7
His best game of the season, still wants to turn backwards when we have movement up front.

Johnson 9 Star man
Worked tirelessly down the left, made up for McCartney`s deficiencies and provided a solid platform to attack down the left.

McCormack 8
Why has he not shown this all season, good goal and gave the Burnley back four a torrid time, used his pace and skills to create as well. Sprinted like a demon to the far side of the pitch when he knew he was being subbed, intelligent running down the clock.

Paynter 7
Worked tirelessly and enjoyed having a partner to work with.


Subs
Snodgrass 6

Not really involved.

Watt 6
Close with two at the end, should have looked up for others in a better position, he's been training with Mad Max obviously!!

Bromby
Clock winding down exercise.

Summary
Final home game and a change to 4-4-2, it surprised us all.
We were bright, inventive and not playing the lone striker meant we could put more pressure on the Burnley defence, is this the future???
The watching Becchio may find he has a partner again next season.

The midfield provided good protection to the defence particularly down the left were McCartney had a mare but Johnson dropped back to get stuck in.
O'Brien in defence had his best game for a while and read the game well, making some telling interventions.

Set pieces had something different, as McCormack's delivery was excellent.
A good all round Team performance today, sending the fans home with something to cheer from the final home game.

Now lets go show mouthy Warnock whose the best team, do the double over the Champ.... sorry I can't bring myself to say that, once a Pikey always a Pikey.

Thanks Tiny for your views all season.
