Should have won the game with those stats, at least we looked more competitive tonight on our travels. I'm feeling a little more optimistic after this result even though we didn't win.

the stats make a scrappy game look more in our favour then it actually was...I felt Oldham looked more threatining for most of the game but our defensive did very well to hold them....It would have been a great achievement to get 3 points out of that game but I think we did well to get a point...Well done Grayson now on to Bristol to get the next 3 points which will also be difficult!

I dont agree with the lucky to get away with it, We all moan with the away form, I was at the Oldham game and thought we done enough to win the game should off taken some of the chances we had, The defence stood up well Naylor has made such a difference he is a true leader, The only signs of weakness for me was ankerman again should of never been beaten at his near post from lee hughes shot and he does not look as commanding as he use to, Still would like to see Grella given a chance i would off given him a run last night think with his pace and touches on the ball would of opened up there defence more should of got at least 25 mins, But pleased with te result keep playing like that and who knows what canhappen there are alot of teams ubove and around us not playing well at the moment lets hope we can take this form into saturday's game, We need 3 points from that one MOT.....

Got to agree with turbo2. oldham had a fair bit of possession,but on the whole,our defense coped well. When we had the ball,we looked more incisive than them. We always looked a threat. Becchio worked his ass off,but i'd still have liked to see Grella given at least twenty-five minutes. parker might not be the finished article,but he's learning all the time. The experience he's getting now,should stand him and us in good stead next season. Get on the forum turbo2. Then you can discuss your opinions with other Leeds fans. It doesn't cost anything,and you can always not go back on if you don't like it.

I have to agree with Turbo as well. i was sat in the home end with my Oldham season ticket holder workmate and he thought we were the better team as well.He was happy with the draw Casper let us down again...beaten from a tight angle thru his legs, what a wally. A battling display though compared to some of our away games.

It was so much better to see the lads actually battling for a game for once! We still had some very sloppy tackles though! A win would've been nice but at least we came away with a point which is more than what we had been coming away with.
