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.

I find some of these marks astonishing coming from the same person who scored Ross McCormack a 4 against Crystal Palace earlier in the season when he scored twice. I agree with Rachubka, I don't think he deserved as good as a 0 he was that bad. Take him out of the mix, we were pooor all over the park. Blackpool looked shocking against Burnley on Saturday but they were all over us with us chasing shadows even before the first goal went in. I wouldn't score any Leeds player higher than a 5 and would probably agree that Kisnorbo was the best of a very bad bunch. Connolly gave away the ball with a shocking pass that led to the first goal, then he fell over. That summed up our night. Regarding the fans, I couldn't say we were tremendous, a section were and especially those that stayed for the last ten minutes. Note to those that left at half time, you follow Leeds through thick and thin (and we've had our ups and downs, we're going to stay with you forever). I have never seen the fans turn on a player like that in over 30 years of following Leeds. Well done to those that tried to get him going but I think by then Rachubka's head was probably in space a bit like his handling. I have said for a few games there are a number of players looking like the need a rest. Clayton is tiring, Pugh and Keogh have looked slugglish for the past three games and McCormack is just beginning to look like the player who struggled last season. I cannot understad why you can't see why Lees saw red. It was a clear hand ball and he was the last man, he had to go. Referee and linesman were bad but they cannot be blamed for a shocking performance. If I had scored the players it would have been. Rachubka 0 Connolly 3 Kisnorbo 5 Lees 4 White 4 Snodgrass 4 Pugh 3 Howson 4 Clayton 4 McCormack 4 Keogh 3 Subs Cairns 5 Becchio 5 Vayrynen 4 I got home at 1.30am after watching what I can only remember as one of our worst ever performances and I was at Stoke 7-2 and Plymouth 6-3 in the 80's!!! I am dreading Sunday at Leicester but I will be there.
Knew someone would get after me with my scores. The Lees incident was away from us and we could only see his back from our view
Tiny T
I said last night I would not have scored anybody as high as you did but I was still shell shocked (and it took me nearly two hours to get home as well through road works and accidents) Effort alone is not enough at this level and our skill level was low. Kisnorbo 8 ?? He almost gavee a goal away first couple of minutes with poor control and was marking space and had totally lost Shelvy foir the first goal. This and the number of fouls he gives away on tackles would make him no more tha n a 6 in my books. It was a bad night and I hope we can just write it off as a lesson like Preston last year.
One of the lads on our bus travelling up said he felt like it was going to be another Preston! I'm surprised we allowed him on the bus on the way home.
So come on guys - Grayson needs a Score ... and So do the fans (I think we made it worse and got on top of the team instead of behind em) And if Mi old Fatha and Dazza think the trip home was bad - we had 2 Leeds fans who had travelled accross from Blackpool sat next to us and they had 3 Tangerines as passengers to take home - now that is a nightmare commute !!!
I got to work on Thursday morning and someone had brought me a tangerine and a stick of rock!
I score Leeds fans 10 out of 10 for demoralising their goalkeeper after the first goal
