Leeds United Fans View v Wolves

I made the trip to Molineux to watch Leeds throw away a much-needed three points as Wolves equalised in the second minute of injury time.

Player Ratings


Paddy Kenny 5

What was he thinking in injury time? He could have wasted just as much time picking up the ball, as he would have with a goal kick. You just knew what was going to happen from the resulting corner. He made one decent save in the second half but he was a virtual spectator for most of the game.

Sam Byram 5

I think he was suffering a hangover from his mistake last weekend. He wasn`t his normal assured self at the back and he was missing for their first goal and out jumped for the equaliser. He did win us a penalty when marauding forward.

Tom Lees 6

I am enjoying the partnership with Lees and Peltier. He gave little away and he cannot be blamed for either goal.

Lee Peltier 5

Soft own goal, but he again looked assured in the centre of defence.

Stephen Warnock 6

He looked far happier going forward and lack of games recently meant he looked a little rusty.

Paul Green 5

I thought he had a quiet game and was rarely involved.

David Norris 7 Star Man

I thought he was our best player in the middle of the park. He got stuck in, breaking up and starting moves.

Michael Brown 5

The usual Brown game. We need more in an attacking sense from our centre midfielders. He wasn`t lunging in like usual, probably aware that a booking would rule him out of the Man City game. I expect him to be rested in midweek.

Ross McCormack 5

He seemed to be playing very deep and not upfront. He scored from the penalty spot to keep his recent run in front of goal going.

Steve Morison 5

He got in some good blocks and defended from the front but never looked a threat in the final third.

Luke Varney 6

He is finally getting his Leeds career off and running. A great goal for the equaliser and he came close with another effort that went just wide. Still far from the finished article though in a Leeds shirt but finally heading in the right direction.

Ross Barkley

He was brought on in injury time after the equalising goal. Why bother?

Manager Rating

Neil Warnock 4

He looks frustrated by the lack of quality. He continues to talk up the side that he built but they are just not good enough and there is no-way he will be celebrating an eighth promotion this season.

About time he gave some of the youngsters a run to add a bit of variety and a different dimension, as we are so predictable.

I wonder sooner see us give it a go with the likes of Chris Dawson, Dominic Poleon, Lewis Walters and Luke Parkin.

Summary

Another disappointing trip home after an away game, despite earning a point. I was shocked how poor Wolves were for a side only relegated from the Premier League last season. They look seriously in trouble of relegation with the rest of the bottom sides putting a run together. The fact we could only draw sums up how bad we are.

The first half could only be described as shocking and despite four second half goals it was no better.

We really have no chance of the play-offs and the season could be all over on Tuesday night if we lose at Middlesbrough.

We lack a creative spark on the pitch and I really think we missed El Hadji Diouf to create something in the final third. It will be interesting to see what side Warnock puts out on Tuesday night.

I think the Wolves fans late repost to Leeds taunting them near the end by the fact we were leading away summed it all up. Whilst we had good banter with the Wolves fans to the left of us, the dirty scum above us in the upper tier of the stand that continued to spit on the Leeds fans during the second half, left a sour taste, literally.

Whilst I like plenty of banter with the opposition fans, spitting is the dirtiest most horrible thing going, something I detest.

I'm sorry but even if we managed the playoffs we wouldn't stand a chance of getting thru. We're a mediocre side - even for the championship. And god help us if we did find ourselves in the Prem. Straight up and straight down. A new manager can't rescue our season but we need to invest in a new manager and players come summer.

it just goes to show how far we have dropped when we can't beat a ***** team like leeds at home -a team who are league 2 at best. As for spitting? funny that being that the front row above is left empty when away fans have the seats below - probably your own fans gobbing because lets face it you are the scum of football, next to millwall you are animals in football, if it is true our fans gobbed on you - then maybe you will know what it feels like because every fan that comes to leeds gets the same treatment- you know your problem yesterday? YOU DIDN'T BRIBE THE WOLVES /REF/LINESMEN ENOUGH!

Johnwolf You really are a moron. League 2 at best? your club is hardly setting the Championship alight this season now is it? I personally feel we wont reach the top 6 this season and to even think of it is unfortunately being over optimistic. The midfield lacks creativity. Brown is nothing more than a has been who has flashes of good quality from time to time. We need morison to hit the ground running and score the goals that Becchio would.
