Agree.

 

Never understood all the stick Less got first half of the season. 

 

Sometimes you’ve got to look at the bigger picture. 

 

It was clear to me the problem was due to constantly changing the back 4 every  week.

 

He’s a quality Centre Back at this level.

Yeah he was exposed under dross. 

 

They all were. 

 

An utterly clueless manager.

I’m a Lees fanboy. 

 

Committed bloke. 

 

We are lucky to have him. 

 

Defending is in his blood. Hector was the colossus style defender last night, but Lees sure keeps it together. 

 

Made an incredible defensive header last night from their set piece in the first half.

Having a proper defensive midfielder in front of him helps!

What a great performance from Tom Lees last night.

 

Sharp's match stats make very interesting reading.  He virtually made no contribution to the game, hardly a completed pass.

 

Tom Lees suffered under Luhukay's so-called 'management' and constant defensive formation/personnel changes but last night we saw what an excellent Championship Centre Back he is.

Back to his best recently .was never suited to jos playing out back rubbish

Hindsight is amazing.

He went about his business without fuss

 

He took a few knocks from that cheating diving sod, Sharp, but just got up and got on with it

 

I voted him MOM in the other thread, he was a colossus

 

To the idiots throwing a coin and a bottle on to the pitch, I hope you get caught and banned, we don't need morons like you

Had a great game last night, as did all the defence with only Iorfa maybe looking a touch nervous at times.  Fox also did fine when he was called upon.

I recall a number of posts being highly critical of Tom Lees pre-Christmas and of course Luhukay unfairly and stupidly dropped him for a game which will certainly not have helped his confidence.

 

It is amazing just how quickly he has returned to being a real class act for us.

I don't think any sane Wednesday fan questioned his ability.  It was the relentless chopping and changing combined with asking him to be a ball playing CH that affected his form.

 

A solid partner in Hector plus Westwood and Hutch obviously helps.  But, Lees is a very solid Championship CH who does the basics of defending extremely well.  He is limited when he has time on the ball and sometimes struggles against a bigger, physical striker (Smith at Rotherham for example).  However, Bruce quickly identified how to set us up defensively and Lees is a key component in that.

He’s back to what he does best, defending and keeping it simple. Previous managers had him receiving the ball at the back and effectively being a playmaker, not his game!

 

We’ve cut out the backwards/side ways passing and they all look better for it.

Back to his best.

 

Him and Hector are a very good partnership.

Funny how, iwth very few additions, the same men who were sufferijgvunder Jos are now playing their hearts out for Bruce. Obviously a different regime, but that can't be the only factor, and some of the blame must rest with th eplayers themselves. However, let's forget the blame games. They are past. Let's look forward.

At elast we appear to have new acquisitions in Sam, Tom, Liam , and Fletcher, who are all playing like different men.
