LUFC Fans view v Bristol City

Tiny T once again gives us his views of the Leeds players performance, this time in the narrow 2-1 win over Bristol City.

Lonergan 7

Another decent performance and again had to keep us in the game, easy stop from a poorly taken penalty.

Lees 6
Steady if unspectacular

Kisnorbo 4
Keeps being beaten for pace.

O'Dea 5
Seems to go to sleep at times and only knows were Row Z is most of the time.

White 7 Star man
Good game for Aidy, never shirked across the defence. Left exposed by whoever played in front of him but defended well.

Snodgrass 4
Yet to get going, another game mostly passed him by. He needs to up the work rate.

Howson 5
Struggled again but not helped with the wide midfielders going missing.

Clayton 6
Great goal, strong in the tackle but again struggled as asked to do too much in the middle of the park.

Nunez 2
Missing in action.

Keogh 4
Little to work off and when a chance came doesn't have a go. Is he another Billy in front of goal.

McCormack 4
Little else but scored, in the right place for the Becchio knock down.

Substitutes

Becchio 5

He lifted the crowd on his introduction, nice knockdown for the goal.

Forssell 4
Little effect but robust when needed.

Bromby 5
Good long throw got us the winner.


Summary
Disjointed display, a flying start that went backwards after a couple of chances to extend the lead were missed.

The midfield struggled again as both the Central midfielders had a lot of ground to cover with Snodgrass still off form and Nunez missing in an area that urgently requires attention. The watching Lloyd Sam must be wondering how he is not getting a game the way these two are playing.

The back four again struggled with Kisnorbo red carded after a poor kick out from Lonergan, and O'Dea missing his tackle.
White was the standout player at the back all game for me. Can we not try Lees at centre half, his more natural position.

With little quality ball to feed off the front two struggled all game, no quality from wide either.

The bench looks lopsided as well with no wide man available for a change at home. Do we really need to have a substitute keeper, as it is a rarity that a Keeper is injured?

Grayson's subs were strange. Why not be positive against a poor team. Yes, bring on Bromby but go three at the back, four across the middle and two up front. White could have played on the left side of midfield.

A very lucky 3 points but it proves we do not give up. Two pieces of quality saw us get the win.

Looking forward, it is two tough games coming up with Salford Quays on Tuesday and Brighton on Friday night. Both will be tough but will Grayson field a weakened side on Tuesday with the League is more important.

Thanks for your thoughts Tiny.

I cannot honestly believe your mark for McCormack who worked hard all afternoon. Howson, O'Dea and the subs scored more!! Snodgrass, Keogh and Kisnorbo the same. You need to remove the blinkers because its making your fans view a mockery. Once again I expect to see all the other sites and the YEP mark him as one of the better players. My view Lonergan 7 Couldn’t do much about the goal and made a few good saves, especially the penalty. Distribution is poor and it was his poor clearance that led to the sending off and penalty. Lees 5 Wasn’t involved much as most of Bristol’s play came down the left. Kisnorbo 2 Becoming a liability. Being exposed, no longer got pace and looking clumsy. As sadly as I have to say it, he is nowhere near the player he was before his injury. O’Dea 4 Shocking first half when he was very lucky not to put a Bristol player through, twice in a matter of seconds. Lonergan saved him on the first occasion. Strangely looked much more solid and assertive once Kisnorbo went off. White 8 Man of the match I was worried about White, didn’t think he was ever going to be a defender. I said when he first came in this season that he looked like he’d bulked up a bit and got stronger. Faced a very tricky winger yesterday and won the battle. Best ever game in a Leeds shirt from White. Howson 2 ‘Hello’ as anybody seen Jonny Howson. Once again went missing for long periods and was sloppy with his passing. Think he will be giving way for the new Finn. Clayton 7 Started strongly and scored a good goal. Loved the fact he went into every tackle with Kilkenny strongly. Tired in the second half as he was having to do the work of two men. Nunez 2 Not a left winger, another player who could take Howson’s role in the middle. Looked better whenever he was more central but nothing much from him. Snodgrass 3 Started well but drifted out of the game. Not the same Snodgrass as we saw around Christmas. Looks a shadow of the player he was since winning his first Scotland cap in February. McCormack 7 Worked tirelessly all afternoon. Good movement and link up play and played in about four different positions in the game. Strikers instinct for the goal. Keogh 4 I said when he signed that he would put in a good shift but wont score many goals. Could have had a hat trick today but not got a predators instinct in the area. We have a player in Becchio with the same capabilities and a bit more and he will score goals. Subs Becchio 5 Worked hard but no support at all after the sending off, did his bit for the goal. Forssell 4 Like Becchio, tried to get involved but it was down the other end far too much. Bromby 5 Time for him to take his chance now Kisnorbo is out. Never lets us down in the centre.

This section needs to be sponsored by Specsaves. Tiny your views on McCormack are blinkered and I feel embarressed for you. I said last week that you are spoiling a great feature with your narrow mindedness.

A poor game that anybody judging would struggle to find positives. For me only White, Clayton, Lonergan and McCormack scored above 5. Lees did nothing wrong but Bristol had obviously targetted the Left as the place to attack. The rest were woeful especially Kisnorbo, Howson, Snodgrass and Nunez who were all no more than 2's. Everybody sees the game differently and while Idont agree with Tinys marking its wrong to launch personal attacks on him.
