Problem for me apart from the obvious is Dalls in centre mid, he isn't creative enough and dosnt have the ability to make the difficult passes - trouble is we dont have much on the bench, thought Robert's and shack were back?
Cheers stuart, love you really

1:1 dallas with a deflected shot. Its hard to watch. Pioor passing and 2nd to the ball most of the game Thiis is a. lucky result.

Teasing cross from Nketiah forces a good take, shame no one could ge ta touch

Final score 1-1 and I'll take that. In the end we were the better team and a lot better once Bamford came off

Good comeback after that very poor start.

Good fighting spirit

But, definitely lacking in our usual quality today.
We're going up like there is no gravity!

Decent point in the grand scheme of things, Preston are a good side

I'll take that result after the first half. Our defence looked like the one from last season, if everyone had shown more composure this would've been a 1 nil win to us.

They are and it's easy to forget that they've had a good run of results lately to turn around a slump of their own. Hopefully we can turn the draw into a win next time.

Poor day but we rescued a point with a much improved send half.

Looked better once Eddie came on, he looked bright and dangerous in his little cameo.

Is it just me or does Costa need to run at people and commit defenders more, lays it off too early for me - as soon as he gets one on one drive at them, defenders are scared to death of the sort of pace he has.

Take a point as time was running out and looked like it wasn’t going to be our day.

Lacking our usual Pablo today. Alioski looked distinctly uncomfortable until put back in his LB box in the second half. This was the kind of game that Forshaw would've excelled in.

We know we are the better team before every game but you wouldn't know it at times. PL ..if we do happen to go up God help them, I'm sure there's a few colour blind !

At the end of the day, there were 2 players from LUFC who need a kick up their arse. Cooper and Ayling. Ayling cannot pass the ball and Cooper made so many mistakes. Everyone can have a bad day, but if one does even the simple things wrong, then there is something fundamentally wrong with the player. It is like watching Messi but in a negative sense. Whenever Messi gets the ball, we all are on the edge of our seats hoping something magical might happen. Whenever Cooper or Ayling get the ball, we are on the edge of our seats praying nothing phantasmal happens. Dear God, they are that bad!

I don't think that subs should be allowed in extra time apart from injuries, as it is just a time wasting move
I'm often accused of acting like I don't care






It's not an act!!

Thought they were supposed to add even more time for each sub......seems not today.

Totally agree especially with Ayling, he is utter crap . You can see his brain cell in overdrive when he collects the ball then it's turnaround wait for a tickle in the back drop to the floor and hope for the foul. He's far too slow and was much better when he was on the bench .

I apologise for my Bamford "hate" but I really don't rate him as a footballer. Not often I don't enjoy watching a Leeds footballer, last one was Ross McCormack but I'm afraid I'll never rid myself of this bias.

Bamford to football is like John Seargent is to Strictly Come Dancing for me, a trier and amusing at times but we need much better and personally I think we've had it since the start of the season.

Apologies again.

I thought time was added on for subs, if not it should be.

Deserved a point in the end but a lot about that performance was poor.

Goal aside (lucky) but this Dallas as a cm myth has to stop, he provides 0 creativity.

Cooper needs to keep it simple, he isnt technically good enough to keep playing crossfield balls, he isnt that good.

Ayling to, keep it simple.

Lack of ideas in the middle of the pitch was a worry and our bench is so weak, the board need to wake up (cant rely on iniury prone players like Roberts, Shacks and Forshaw coming back).

Preston played well, best 1st half performance ive seen, when pressed a lot of our players dont look comfortable including KP which isnt a surprise.


Still worried about Pablo being out, if that was a sign of things to come for a month we have issues.

Take a point but an opportunity missed again.
