LUFC Fans view v Blackpool

LUFC Fans view v Blackpool

Tiny T was in the hot seat for the disastrous performance against Blackpool on Wednesday night.

Rachubka 0

Get rid and the Goalkeeping Coach should follow him.

Connolly 7

Slip that allowed the first shot but the Keeper error was not down to him. Solid enough at centre back.

Lees 6
Still don't know why he got a red card.

Kisnorbo 8 Star man
Solid organised the back four, good blocks and tackled like a Trojan.

White 8
Troubled all night by two coming at him, stuck to his task well, though little chance to get forward.

Snodgrass 8
Worked hard as part of the three man midfield, a little quick taking free kicks at times.

Clayton 5
Off the pace and overrun, needs a rest?

Howson 7
Moved to right back when Lees sent off. He got forward when allowed, worked hard like the rest of the back four. No doubt, I'll be slated for this mark.

Pugh 5
Another off the pace in the middle as they overran the middle of the park.

Keogh 5
Hard pressed to make any openings.

McCormack 6
Another who worked hard but no goal threat.

Cairns 6

He could do little to prevent the last two goals. Will he get the nod on Sunday or will a loan come in?

Becchio 6
Looked fitter and the 45 minutes will do him good.

Vayrynen 5
Midfield was already lost, so this was a chance to build up much needed match fitness.

Before we got out of the blocks we were three down thanks to poor Keeping, this, with the exception of Lonergan has been a problem for a number of seasons, perhaps its time for a change of personnel on the coaching staff.

Losing Lees to a debatable red was a major blow and gave us little chance of getting back into the game after it.

The Officials were poor yet again with plenty of odd decisions for both sides.
We had a decent go for the first 15 minutes of the second half and it would have been interesting had we managed to score.

Yet again Grayson`s signings let the club and its fans down. He doesn't have a good record on this matter.

On the positive side, the fans were tremendous, with backing throughout the game. Noted by the Blackpool Keeper, who applauded the fans at the end of the game.

I could have had a rant but what is the point, keeping errors let the team down, though we were being overrun in the middle of the park before they happened.
