LUFC Leeds United Fan View v Millwall

LUFC Leeds United Fan View v Millwall

Vital Leeds United contributor Tiny T gives us his usual view of the game at Elland Road.

This time it comes after a 4-3 defeat to Millwall.

Wiedwald 6
He stood no chance with the goals. When he pushes the ball out he needs to get strong hands on it to push it away.

Berardi 8 Star man
If we had 11 of him playing, we would win most of our games.

Jansson 7
I expected him to be sent off at half time but he reined it in and he had a decent second half.

Cooper 6
It was not a red card.

De Bock 6
A reasonable first game.

Phillips 3
He struggled all the game and he was pushed off the ball too easily. Yet another card - He needs to learn to tackle.

Vieira 3
He didn`t look fit.

Alioski 7
Alioski worked hard all game.

Hernandez 7
A lively game and he got stuck in.

Roofe 7
He scrambled home the second goal and he had an assist for the first goal.

Lasogga 7
It was his best game for Leeds. He scored two good goals and he worked hard.

Subs
Pennington 7
Pennington was classy at times.

Dallas 6
It was nice to have him back.

Shaughnessy
He nearly got one at the end.

Summary
A reasonable first 10 minutes but then it all went wrong after the red card. It took too long to get Pennington on and they got a second goal before he came on.

We were bullied in the middle of the park and we struggled with the height at set plays.

Second half, what a difference, we got the early goal and roared back into the game to lead.

Two good strikes and a scrambled goal, which took an age to go in. We then lost it by conceding two late goals though Shaughnessy had a half chance at the death to earn us a draw.

Why can we not play the game for 90 minutess instead of 45? Yes, Millwall are a big unit and love it in the air but at the back, when we went at them, they were clueless on defending.

The red card for Cooper was a joke as the tackle that got Lasogga limping was in my opinion the same as it was from the rear. Inconsistent referees are a pain. If the Millwall players and bench had not had a go at the referee, it would it have been a yellow card.

Christiansen`s subs today baffled most as Lasogga was limping badly when Roofe went off, so it should have been the other way round and with Roofe on the pace, it would have troubled their back line.

Morison should have been at least spoken to by the referee after the first goal for inciting the crowd.

To the planks in the South Stand who like to play hand ball play it outside of the ground the ref adds time on for it and in that time they got the winner.

On to Hull, we need a 90+ minute performance from the team. I hope that we will get it.
