'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Fans view v Watford

I was unfortunate enough to be in the hot seat for the game at Watford in what must be one of the worst games of football I have seen in a long time.

McCarthy 6 Star Man

He had very little to do and could do nothing about the goal. His penalty save in the closing stages helped salvage a point for Leeds. I hope we can do something to keep him at Elland Road.

Connolly 5
Played some decent balls into the box but nobody looked like getting on the end of them.

Lees 4
For me his mistake led to Watford`s goal. He went for a ball that had nothing to do with him. Got nowhere near it and left Kisnorbo isolated.

Kisnorbo 5
He won a lot aerially and looked the best outfield player on the pitch for Leeds. Clumsy foul led to the penalty.

White 5
Even he could not get into his stride going forward from defence.

Snodgrass 5
He gets a five for the penalty, as he was rarely involved in the game in a positive aspect.

Sam 3
He did very little and he was rightly substituted with half hour to go.

Clayton 3
Most of the game was played above his head and when he did get the ball he was usually wasteful.

Pugh 4
He battled but he was another player in midfield, who could not stamp their authority on the game.

Becchio 3
He got very little to play off but when he got a chance, he was wasteful.

Keogh 2
Did he actually play? He is a striker but spent most of the time out wide doing very little.

Substitutes

McCormack 4

He did liven things up slightly but was wasteful when on the rare occasion a player actually got the ball down and at his feet.

Vayrynen 5
He made an impact down the right hand side and played a few good balls in. He was in there when it was needed and he won a penalty that salvaged a point for Leeds.


Summary
I would actually rate this has a worse performance than the one against Blackpool when we lost 5-0.

Nobody covered themselves in glory, in a game that was Fourth Division standard, (I actually think I could be being disrespectful to Division Four).

Shocking game, mostly played about twenty feet above any player.

We are a long way from promotion candidates, but once again, we somehow managed to get something from a game we were very poor in.

I wonder what the reaction would have been from the Leeds fans at full time had we not got out of gaol in the final seconds.

Thanks Dazza. Your report fits in pretty well with the commentary on Yorks Radio. I have rarely heard Eddie Gray more scathing of a performance with the ball in the air most of the time (This is not football he kept saying). Eddie agreed with you that Kisnorbo was our best outfield player but also agreed with me that he is now too slow to be a force at this level. He was totally done by Kightly for the goal and gave away a silly penalty after beign caught on the wrong foot. Time to look to the future and get O'Dea back in the middle. For me Sam isnt up to it and I am not too impressed with Pugh if the intention is to sign him in January.

Like Erni suffered the Radio version, Eddie had Kisnorbo for the goal and giving away the pen as his MoM for the outfield player shows how bad the rest were. Erni agree with your view of Kisnorbo if it isn;t in the air or its a slow Forward he struggles time for a change. Fortunately most of the redults didn't harm us too much
Tiny T
It was similar to Burnley but worse. We somehow keep getting points but we really have to do something in January. With Bates vibes on promotion, Grayson is really walking a tightline between success and failure.
