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

LUFC Leeds Fans View v Ipswich

Tiny T gives us his usual view of the player`s performance in the game at Elland Road.

This time, following the fortuitous 3-1 win over Ipswich Town.

Lonergan 5
A couple of decent stops, but Keepers should not be beaten at their near post. His distribution was slow and lacked direction.

Thompson 5
He struggled but stuck to his task. He was better in the second half.

Lees 5
He played ok and some timely stops. His distribution was weak

O'Dea 4
Struggled and looks short of ideas. He just lumps it when he gets it.

Pugh 4
Odd timely tackle and interception. He lacked cohesion with Townsend who was playing in front of him.

Snodgrass 5
If we were going to get going Snoddy was the man He was surrounded whenever he got the ball, stop him stop Leeds.

Clayton 4
He was nowhere to be seen in the first half, better second half showing. When the chance arises, he needs to move the ball faster.

Delph 4
Like the rest, he was woeful in the first half. He improved in the second.

Townsend 2
He offered little outlet and rightfully subbed.

McCormack 3
He may have scored the second but did little else.

Forssell 1
Offered the chance of a start and fluffed his lines, I have seen better from the Dray horses out of Tetley`s brewery.

Subs
White 4

Injected some pace and direction.

Becchio 3
A much-needed goal to boost his confidence.

Summary
A woeful 60 minutes by our so-called heroes. If it had not have been for the sending off it is doubtful we would have got anything out of the game.

On paper, the midfield looked good but was woeful, mark Snodgrass and were clueless.

The pace of the match was funeral march with little from both sides. I Doubt I have seen a worse team at Elland Road this season than Ipswich. It shows how awful we actually were.

Devoid of ideas from 1 to 11 and the manager was like his centre forward stood planted like a tree and hardly moved.

With nothing coming from the sidelines, or on the pitch the crowd were extremely bored with little cheer except for the now usual Bates out, which is growing in force as the season draws on.

Hardly likely to encourage the supporters to go out and renew season tickets and spend money over the counters and bars.

I went to the Sponge so could not tell how many were in the Pavilion but not many were coming out as I made my way to the ground.

As the growing voice calls for Bates to go, perhaps his manager should follow him as well. Eddie Gray said on the radio the chairman provides the funds but the manager chooses whom those funds are spent on.

Looking forward to a weekend break next week and then its Birmingham at Home, will we have more new faces?

Pretty much as I saw it Tiny. Abject performances from both teams. If it were possible to give a 0 tyo Forssell I would have given it. I did think though that Becchio did well when he came on as did White so maybe their marks are a bit weak. I have never known ER so quiet at one point around the 55 min mark you could one guy shouting abuse from the middle of the kop !!! "We are Leeds United and we have had enough" summed it all up.

Suprisingly when we were losing No Grayson Out chants
Tiny T
Agree with most of it but think Lonergan should have lost a mark or two and McCormack was doing his all but had no ball to shoot with - and again I thought Becchio gave us a push when he came on which resulted in move that got keeper sent off (although he was a spectator when McCormack chased ball) - we need to play better and I'm wondering if these protests are doing too much damage to team on pitch rather than team in boardroom
