Big credit to RMc for achieving a scoring feat not heard of at Leeds for years.
I'm enjoying reading some of the comments from Charlton fans about losing a game they had chances to win.
Hopefully the winning habit is now closer to being ingrained in our team.
Any comments on choice of team, including bench, for this match?

Cheers,

I await comments from those at the game, mate. All I can go on, is that Eddie said at ½ time we were lucky to go in level and that they battered us in the first 45. Which was almost 55 with the added time?
Same again for the 2nd half and you could hear the relief in the commentary, when Ross got the 4th goal to settle it. Tis crap when you score three away and still not sure of a win, eh? Seeing the highlights, our defence is utter shyte?
But fook me - I'll take winning ugly on the road, ANY time :tup:

What the hell were Lees & Peltier doing when tracking the Charlton forward down near the corner flag, he must have turned them both twice before easily allowed to run towards our box to cross to Jackson to score who Pearce failed to pick up

Why was Lees drawn to the corner flag area in the first place ?

Shocking abysmal defending :x

McCormack is 27yo & his four goal haul was his first career hat trick, says it all about his inconsistency & lack of firepower over the years

Van Persie's first hat trick was only two years ago when he was 28, so let's hope Ross hits that run of form. Compare and contrast with David Bentley who scored his first hat trick when he was only 22. If you can make any case for a hat trick resembling consistency, be my guest. The elite in the world (Ronaldo, Messi, Aguero, Suarez, Drogba) will find quite a few in their career. For most players, they must hope that they get that little bit of luck on their good days.

On to the match, brilliant result considering Charlton's defensive ability. Got that little bit of luck that we've lost out on other days, so we still need to improve to ensure we win more games even when luck is playing for the other team. 6 goals from Ross in two games must be filling him with confidence. Brilliant to have strikers (Smith, Ross, Blackstock) who all seem to be able to convert chances to goals.

Loads of the top teams struggled yesterday (Burnley at home to Bournemouth, Leicester and Blackpool at home, QPR etc) so it was a good result for us to pick up a win and pull us closer to that top pack. The downside is a lot of teams below us all won and are right behind us. Heard a lot of people comment "we should beat Charlton" but once again the results showed that there are no definites in this league. 1 point away from playoffs...and this is when McDermott really gets his teams playing. Stuff being realistic, or doom-n-gloom...we've got a real shot this year.

Now the first hat trick for VP two years ago does surprise me :o

Fantastic result - another 3 points, an away win and 4 goals from a confident striker!

I wouldn't take anything away from Ross - it was undeniably his day. He's banging them in for us now. Let's judge his contribution at the end of the season, but he's at his peak age and this could be his best season. He will no doubt have a few periods during the season where the goals dry up, but he is obviously capable and we should stick with him. Well done Ross and we look forward to more! :tup:

Yeah fantastic result from Charlton and well done Leeds Utd.
I`m not to convinced with our defensive formation and aren`t sure with this the, 3-5-2 set up but as i already said in Brian we trust and bring on `boro and the rest of `em.

We desperately need to find tthe complimentary striker for R Mc. R Mc has always been a player that will score a few goals in quick succession then go a few games without scoring. If we can get the complimentary striker chipping in goals more consistently then all we need to do is sort out the defence and we have a chance.

A quite funny old day firstly wondering if the game was going on the pich was playable at the start though.Secondly Ross answering his critics the best way possible no doubt some people will find things wrong with him but even McDermott is saying he could play in the premiership.

Kenny 8 two fantastis saves
Peltier 5 Badly at fault for 2nd goal
Lees 7 Won no amount of headers
Pearce 8 Put his body in the line plenty
Wooton 6 Is starting to settle in
Pugh 8 Deserves a 2nd chance played well
Austin 7 Covered plenty of the pitch
Murphy 7 Made some great runs
Blackstock 6 Struggled
McCormack 10 In one word Sublime
Brown 7 Got his foot in a few times
Subs
Zailukas 8 Really solid
Smith 5 Could not make much impact

Thanks the worst thing was wondering if we would have to go through the journey all again with the costs that would have made it even worse.Really in the 1st half Charlton looked the better side but then up stepped Ross and turned the game around.Yes we defend quite well but the conditions helped a lot.
