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

LUFC Neil Warnock post match reaction

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock thought there were a lot of tired looking Leeds players in their 7-3 home defeat to Nottingham Forest.

Leeds improvement defensively since the arrival of Warnock was all undone as they conceded seven goals at home for the first time in the clubs history.

Warnock spoke to Yorkshire Radio after the game and gave his reaction.

"I thought first ten or fifteen minutes one or two of our players were struggling fitness wise. Becchio could hardly run. He was going to come off at half time but I asked him to give me another ten or fifteen minutes. He was really running on empty. There were three or four like that.

You learn about the team. You do not learn about a team when you beat teams, you learn about them in defeat.

"I said to them after the game, if you think that was tough wait until we get down there (Millwall) on Saturday.

"It is not for me to criticise individuals tonight. We get back to 3-3 and I thought we could go on and win it but the next goal is like a Sunday league school.

"Without going into detail I have made it clear to the players concerned but I will keep it inside.

"They were poor goals. I was disappointed with the second goal before half time. I was a real poor goal to give away.

"To get like we did and have the momentum only to concede from the corner of the penalty box like we did is as poor as I have known it.

"It is not a night for a rollicking. We were lacking in certain areas and the goals were poor.

"There were one or two kept going like Snodgrass and Brown. I thought Clayton was running on empty like Becchio and there were one or two others, whom I was disappointed with.

"You have to look at one or two areas and store it in the memory. If we are going to get promotion, you can`t mentally go under in any position and I thought one or two did tonight.

"You don`t give up. It is ironic really. You have seen tonight, we need to be rested and give us some fresh legs.

"I want to give one or two an opportunity on Saturday if I can. There were many tired people out there in the first half.

"I thought in the second half the goals got us going again. To concede a fourth goal like we did is like shooting yourself in the foot."

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall after the game. At least now he has seen the real Leeds United

This was as poor as it gets. We were over-run from the first minute and scored against the run of play. 2-1 at half time was the least Forest deserved as they were so much better than us. When they got the third (from a corner that was really a very obvious goal kick) I knew were in for a hiding as at least six heads went down. We scored two goals from nothing to get back in it but Forest then just over-ran us. They scored some great goals from good strikes but I think Lonergan should have done better on at least three. Robinson has been solid up to now but you can see what Bolton say he has had a catostrophic loss of form on last nights performance. He was worse than capaldi.

Thought you had sorted your leaky defence out Tiny T ? Maybe it was just an off day.We all get them .Warnocks an outstanding manager.He will sort it out for you.

Disgraceful performance from 1 to 11, but it can only get better we hope. On this evidence the major clearout cannot start soon enough
