Leeds United v Blackburn - Team/Reports/Ratings

Post by 1964white » Mon Dec 30, 2013 6:30 pm

Time for McDermott to make a couple of changes :shock: wake up to the fact why our midfield is not functioning & the ball is also by-passing the the middle of the park Brian, time to make a major ruthless decision

Austin & Lees are the problem !

Kenny

Peltier Wootton Zaliukas Pearce Pugh

Murphy Brown Mowatt

McCormack Smith

I've seen 2 telly games and 1 live and I've been unimpressed with LEES PELTIER AUSTIN AND SMITH. With regards to smith I believe and it did happen against Watford if you cross the ball from the byline across the fave of goal he will score just like a big target man does.

3412 as we have no width

Kenny

Zaliukas (c)
Pearce
Wootton

Byram
Murphy
Mowatt
Pugh

Diouf ( even a half fit diouf has more creativity than any player in this league)

McCormack
Smith
REST IN PEACE GARY SPEED LEEDS UNITED LEGEND

I have to agree with you there, also I don't understand why no subs have been used, is he just trying to manage fatigue on players? cause obviously the team he is putting on the park has gone stale.
I would go with Poleon up front in place of Smith, we are in desperate need of wingers, this is a tricky game and feel very uneasy about it.

I personally don`t see anything wrong at the back.3-5-2 or not .
A month or so ago i`d had some doubts but we are doing alright and it`s more fire in our belly`s and some firepower up front for me .

For once, I agree with Joe - If Diouf is fit, he should be at least on the bench. I feel he would have been a perfect substitute to bring on, in the last two games.

Egg won't drop his captain tho.

Poleon is not ready to start in my honest opinion

I actually think he'd be decent getting a start. Summat to prove? He was the only player to worry forest when he came on.
If it doesn't happen for him, then bring the tall lad on at ½ time. Dom will have tired their defenders - Smith could take advantage.

Yeah maybe so, cause he is being wasted on the bench and BM hasn't been using any subs :shock:

Smith's only threat is from crosses as he is absolutely useless on the deck, so why persist with him if we have no one to provide quality crosses ? I agree about Diouf, he is the only player in our squad who can get the ball and hold on to it while looking for a creative pass.

I don`t think diouf is that favourable with Bmc D and team selections seem to suggest this .

Would like to see Byram given the start. Needs to get consistent pitch time to help get his form back. Though not sure he is 100% back from injury either?

What is the story on Byram - seems like his injury is dragging on or is it just match fitness?

Been disappointed with the games over the holiday period, a lot of passes back to Kenny to boot up the field, playing through the midfield seems to be a lost art. Agree with a lot on here as regards Lees too.

Hopefully coffers will be open in January - but then again we always seem to be saying this every year !

I rather enjoyed the match :P ref was s**t, crowd was good, Ross squared up to one of their players right in front of me, Austin was all over the pitch, shame about the result. :bear:
