LUFC Fans view v Bradford

The fans view returns where a fan at the game gives us his views on the players performance.

In the hot seat last night was MojoLUAFC who believes the squad just isn`t strong enough after watching Leeds scrape past Bradford City in the Carling Cup.

A much needed win to get that winning feeling early on in the season. I would`ve preferred three points rather than another round in the cup but a wins a win.

Lonergan 6
Distribution was shocking at times, even when throwing the ball. He is going to have to step up with our shaky defence in front of him.

Connolly 6
Seemed to struggle on the right, which was where Bradford attacked a lot. Pushed up well and got back to defend when needed.

O`Brien 5
To me he had a nightmare, second to everything including headers. Couldn`t do simple passes, kept being caught out in our own third, which cost us the second goal. Rightly subbed.

Kisnorbo 7
Solid in the air but made some mistakes at ground level, still not 100% match fit in my eyes.

Parker 5
He`s not the answer to the left back problem, too slow for the first goal but ok as a squad player, as of now.

Sam 8
Although he isn`t Max he did very well, gave us an option down the right and delivered some good crosses.

Nunez 7
Does look good on the ball but he sprayed a few passes all over. Well taken goals and just needs a run in the team and he will be a real force.

Clayton 8.5 Man of the Match
Ran for everything, had a secure game and linked up well with Brown and Nunez.

Brown 7
Better than his debut, he wasn`t reckless this time but his passing wasn`t the best.

Jonny 7
His tackling and determination was excellent, some sloppy passes that could have been costly but looks very much like a captain.

McCormack 7
Missed a couple of good chances but took his header well. Struggled at 5- 4- 1 because he`s not quick enough and too small, improved when we changed to 4- 4- 2.

Subs

Lees 7

Came on to change the back four, which was shaky. Looked good and not out of place at all, Larry needs to keep him playing for confidence.

Bromby 7
Desperately needed to get O`Brien off but defensive headers went straight back to Bradford as usual. Don`t understand why Bruce isn`t getting a shout.

Taylor
Not enough time on the pitch.

We really did miss Max and Snodgrass, which proves to me the squad is not strong enough.

Thanks for your thoughts Mojo.

Sam was involved in someway with all three goals. I thought Brown along with the defence was really poor. McCormack was busy but he's no Becchio (he takes some replacing). Clayton head and shoulders above everyone. I fear for us on Saturday if we play like this again. Got to drop O'Brien, Lees deserves a chance, he looked solid and made a couple of great tackles and his ball for the McCormack goal was brilliant.

Most of the comments are accurate but I think Brown, Connolly Parker and AOB were no better than 4. I wouldnt have given AOB better than 3 as he was shocking. Brown wasnt visible until the last 15 minutes and as a defensive midfielder hes is missing a lot. Good on you for turning up Mojo as most of us stayed at home to save the pennies with two more matches in the next week and the Rhinos game last Sunday.
