LUFC Leeds Fan View v Doncaster Rovers

LUFC Leeds Fan View v Doncaster Rovers

Tiny T gives us his usual fans view of the games at Elland Road involving Leeds United.

This time he gives his views after another disappointing performance in the 2-1 defeat to Doncaster Rovers.

Butland 5
He stood little chance with either of the goals.

Byram 4
He was better in the second half when going forward, should have done better for the second goal.

Lees 3
Poor performance

Pearce 4
Poor performance

Pugh 3
Poor all-round, only good point was the cross from the free kick for goal.

Mowatt 4
He struggled in the first half when out of position, better when he moved centrally.

Austin 1
Weak in all aspects.

Murphy 2
Struggled.

Stewart 3
Odd glimpses of talent needs to take on the full back more and deliver into the box.

McCormack 4
He struggled with us having little possession in the first half. He was better in the second and a headed goal as well.

Smith 5
Toiled away all afternoon but little to feed off, good header to set up the goal.

Subs
White 4

Got us moving forward, but when he gets around the area he needs to put in a decent ball.

Tonge 4
Better than the two that went off but in the final minute put the ball from the corner straight to the keeper.


Summary
First half was a shambolic mess with no effort or commitment from 2-11. I leave Butland out as he has little effect on outfield play.

Second half a marked improvement and should have possibly nicked a draw, but for woeful crossing and a ref who needed to understand the laws of the game regarding the keeper holding the ball, it got ridiculous with at one stage it being 20 seconds on my watch.

The Club is out of control and we need a decision on Monday quickly, one way or the other. Why have GFH refused to talk to the other group interested, it`s time for them to go quickly as we need to sort out the finances for the closed season regarding new signings and who will be doing them.

I personally think we need stability and should stick with Brian McDermott.
