God knows how you worked out Leeds goal attempts with the goal mouth antics, everyone had a go first half & still we didn't show the balls to score & take our chances. Not a brill game but all in all a wins a win. Thought Naylor stood firm & control the defence well. Got to say Cheltenham did av the ball in the net (disallowed) but which side did the ball came from, Our left back again (BP),its not good enough. Lets not forget who we were playing they fustrated us & got at us & broke us down so fast & gave us little time to think on the ball. Why av we extended Trundle loan & only play him for a few mins? I did want to see how good Grella Is & thought he could of come on for Becchio cause he couldn't av hit a barn door from 3 feet away to day. Glad to see Howson start,he had a good game as did Robinson.

I Agree lets not get carried away it was Cheltenham we were playing and to be honest didn't think we looked that good, Again we struggled to score thank god we have Beckford back, If Grayson thinks this side is going to take us up he must be Joking,The left back position is a joke and as pete mc said we still had a goal scored against us which was disallowed they still broke us down to easly just think grayson should bring in another left back and a central defender along with a creative midfielder and another striker send Trundle back have not been impressed by him and get someone in who can score goals, this league is not about fancy football its about teams who roll there sleeves up and want to get out off it, We dont seem to have to many players who are willing to do this, Yes we are leeds and are a massive club in league 1 but the problem is we have a league 1 team who are not good enough to put a run together, Think the away form will finish any hopes we have on getting in the play off's, Time to face the fact's and stop all this we will get better talk we have said this all season, LEEDS UNTIL I DIE............

How many creative midfielders do you want we had 6 on the pitch yesterday, Howson Delph Kilkenny Robinson Snodgrass and Douglas, all spent too much time in the middle, not alot of width. Parker did well at LB but had little support in front of him also had a rasping drive in the 1st half which the Keeper saved.

It's nice to have a win at last but the lads still have to take a good look at there performance. We're still not performing as well as we can but we're getting there. Hopefully things will get better once Beckford is back!

Tiny T, Sorrt but alot of the time there were no one in the central mid. We didn't compete for the ball enough & thats where most games or won. Tiny T sorry again but our LB is a joke, Cheltenham walked the ball through & if the bottom team can do this then we're in for a rocky game next week And if mr Parker (Defender) is up fron then two things come to mind,1) who's covering our LB Answer no body,2) Haven't we got enough players up front to put the ball in the net, Becchio, Robinson,Snodgrass,Delph,Douglas,Kilkenny, Trundle. what we don't need is players working for them selves thats why we have formations. & I dont think it was 3-5-2 or even worse 3-6-1. When we start playing as a team then we will improve alot more. With respect.

im glad we agree turbo (that your s@@t) and are staying in div 1,)sounds like you was lucky
terrier09
so then terrier09, how did your team do yesterday?....
Gromjo
I thought the same has you recently Pete MC, we have hardly any team work in the side, I think we have got far too many single minded players who don't work hard enough for each other.

I`m not convinced yet either. Especially after only a two goal win against the bottom club (who are a VERY poor side but still managed to give us a few hairy moments) because I don`t think anything`s really changed. We still can`t take our chances without JB. Without Becks up front we are basically a joke in the opposition`s box. Still expecting us to be in the playoff final though but still playing League One football next season because we are and always have been (mostly) poor cup finalists. Hope I`m wrong though.

I would love Leeds to go up this season,but just being honest in what im seeing from a team that cant play as a team and there are only a couple of players who will roll there sleeves up for the cause, to get out of this league its plain to see what you need a team that play all as a unit and will back each other all the way and players that roll there sleeves up when it's needed, this is something that is not happening at Elland road to many single minded players who think they are better than what they are, Grayson has got to bring players in now to have a final push to get in the play off's, This squad at present will not be good enough, are away form is a joke and we will be caught out if this squad is not added to now, Get another striker in and a good left back and central defender and a creative midfield player and show the players at leeds that are just not good enough the door, Time is running out and another season in league 1 will be a Joke......................
