We have been very sloppy in possession. Like the forest game, but this time we scored first. Failing to make key passes, caught in possession at key moments, dead balls cut out (even short ones) and hashed clearances have made it a tiring night.

 

Nonetheless a point gained and good for the confidence. Will need to be much better at West Brom 

 

Couldn’t agree more. Sloppy play, from players you’d not expect it from either. Even Bannan struggling to find his man or taking random free kicks backwards, sideways, anywhere other than into box. 

 

Leeds worked hard in fairness and forced a lot of errors. We won’t play as hard working team as that all season.

Silver lining: Last year with Carlos we would've completely fallen apart under that pressure. Jos has got the players heads on right.

The media will be w@nking themselves off over Leeds tonight but that was as one-eyed a refereeing performance that I’ve seen. We weren’t able to challenge them at all and that’s why they had all the possession. We knew if we even farted in Leeds the ref was going to blow, yet they could go to town on us. Yes, they were the better team on the night but the ref allowed the freedom to play. We might as well have been locked up in Wentworth.

 

True, the media love them, they always have sadly...

 

Wentworth prison you say ?...:biggrin:

Very lucky to get a point. Can’t pick on any individuals, most were poor. Felt like we were chasing shadows when they had the ball, and panicking when we had it. Referee gave them a free kick anytime one of our players so much as farted.

 

Special mention for Penney though. What a player he’s going to be!

I’ve no problem with Jos, but personally I thought we were crying out for five in midfield and one target man up front. They completely won the right to play in midfield.

Horrid negative performance

 

Leeds players chasing the ball for a throw in to us in injury time and all we do is stroll around spunking the ball back to em

Agreed, can't believe they wanted more. Think we needed to switch formation to 4-3-3 though, completely over run in midfield and sat too deep to be able to press high up which is what they did to us. Point gained though....

fair result,they were far superior

I defo think they were better. They are very huff and puff tho, they rarely looked dangerous in the final third. Play very intensive football tho, and are the best Leeds side in years. They break brilliantly, we were ok, feel we cannot play the ball well enough at times. But could also have easily won that, we are much more ruthless when we get in the final third, unfortunately, that was few and far between today. Decent game.

Leeds look a very fit team, and considering they were meant to be promoted by Christmas, I'll take a point

Be shocked if they aren’t a Premiership next season. Hate admitting that.

To be fair, Leeds were far better than us.  Very lucky to get a point, but the battling spirit is there for all to see which is something we haven't had for a very long time.  One thing though, Dawson is awful and I'm sorry but Jos has to bite the bullet on this one.

FT 1-1

 

I'll take that.  I would  have loved 3 points tonight.  The table looked beautiful at half time.  It wasn't to be.  

 

Thought we really could have pushed on second half but to no avail.  

 

Off the performance, leeds were much better than us in terms of effort and possession, but the fact we have matched them, will do me. 

 

Hard fought point against a highly competitive side.  

 

Have a nice evening all.

 

Onwards and upwards,

 

UTO!!

It's a long season. Every chance they'll run themselves into the ground before it's done and dusted.

 

Here's hoping, anyway lol

Too wasteful up front as good as they are on the ball.

Just seem so slow and lethargic, we'll win the ball then give it away seconds later almost like the players feel winning it back initially was good enough.

 

The players still look like they know they don't deserve to be challenging at the top. A mentality issue that haunts us still.

When we say “battered” they dominated the ball but they looked toothless without Roofe. Reminded me of Huddersfield who were similar but lacked a centre forward or focal point.

 

We frustrated them a fair bit and a lot of the problems were from our own sloppy clearances or lack of communication.

 

Bielsa has certainly nailed their tempo and possession game though and we struggled to cope or launch effective counter attacks as a result.
