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

LUFC Fans view v Reading

Tiny T gives us his usual fans view from the games at Elland Road.

After I had the misfortune of doing the report from Watford last weekend when we was lucky to get away with a draw in a totally inept performance, I was glad to hand this one back over to Tiny.

Lonergan 4
At fault slightly for the goal, maybe he should have come, kicking game off.

Connolly 3
Given a testing time by the Reading winger and rarely got forward.

Lees 4
Troubled but stuck to his task, too much lump it forward though.

Kisnorbo 3
Another at fault for the goal. Passing under no pressure awful and just lumped it whenever he got it.

White 4
Saved two goals at least, at fault for the goal, he needs to improve his balls into the opposing area.

Snodgrass 4
Tried hard but wandered inside too much when we needed width, didn't see enough of the ball.

Clayton 2
Off form, and rightly subbed. He has been like this for a number of games now

Brown 3
Another who struggled, a couple of decent challenges, again rightly subbed.

Pugh 3
Struggled like the rest to make a mark on the game.

McCormack 4
He never got sight of goal. He was mystifyingly substituted when we needed a goal.

Becchio 3
He spent most of the game being knocked about by two rugged defenders. He seemed to lose heart.

Substitutes
Keogh 3

Never going to change a game and doesn't score goals.

Vayrynen 3
Game was lost when he came on

Sam 3
Nothing to work off.

Summay
Grayson got this woefully wrong, too many off form players occupying places they do not deserve. Mysteriously subs the leading goalscorer when we needed a goal.
Reinforcements are needed urgently and not loan signings, we need to splash a little cash to improve the team not the squad.

Today was one of the worst performances I've personally seen in nearly 50 years of attending matches home and away. It is time for Grayson to get a grip or leave. The team he has built is sub-standard. The little quality we have will soon be snapped up and at the end of yet another dismal failure who'll want to join.
It is time for Grayson to grow a pair. Go to the Chairman and to his players and demand better from both
Why do all the keepers who have played this season have a problem with distributing the ball quickly and to the right area of the pitch?

On a positive note, it was the last home fixture this calendar year with the next home game on January 2nd 2012. Let us make Elland Road a fortress from then

Thanks for your thoughts Tiny.

truly did think Lees and Snodgrass gave it a go but it wasnt enough on their own - why why why why why did Larry sub McCormack while Becchio was so clearly not up for it ?? and as for Clayton he didnt have his best game but like Lees and Snoddy he seemed to be giving it a go - worst player for me yesterday was Grayson - since his recent marital problems we have gone into freefall

I have to agree with you. I honestly do not know where to start after this game following on from Watford.

Shows just how much Howson is missed when he's not there, Clayton has had a mare for weeks but still gets his place, shows how weak the back up really is
Tiny T
Why did we sub McCormack?..He was the most likely to score..Why not Clayton for Keogh..Even though Becchio wasn't playing that well we would have had more of an attacking force on the park...Lloyd Sam got two kicks in 30 minutes...Are we going to get promotion?...Were are all of our Midfield players...Howson injured for 6 months.. Bring back Micky Doyle
