I'd posted the same thing on another forum and counted it in my head
Could work Harry but I would suggest a rainbow coloured card and
Very true, you can sense that Pablo and Saiz are getting more and more agitated at the lack of quality around them. I shudder to think what will happen if we lose these guys. As you can bet your last pound, they wont be replaced by real like for like quality as its clear Radz just doesnt have the dough !!Durly wrote: ↑Tue Apr 03, 2018 10:29 pm Just got back in. Took my two girls along (the little un's first game).
Not much to say really. We have forwards who can't score and two top class attacking midfielders that look utterly frustrated with everything and everyone around them. I'll be stunned beyond words if they're still here after September 1st.
Radz has the summer to pull his finger out of his arse and get this right.
Wasn't going to comment on this thread again but that's one of the best summaries I've read in a long time. We're missing rationality here at the moment...even me at timesGandalf wrote: ↑Wed Apr 04, 2018 8:51 am I went down to Fulham last year, and I know we didn't win last night, but the performance for an hour was far better than Monk's team managed last season, where we were battered for the whole game, but managed to scrape a draw.
BPF - 6 Couple of decent saves, but maybe he could have done better with the goals. Kicking good.
Dallas - 5 Gave Sessegnon and Targett all the space in the world 1st half, improved 2nd half, although should have been booked for the dive.
Jansson - 5 Was bossed by Mitrovic all night, and was targetted (impeded) at every free kick and corner that Fulham had.
Pennington - 6 Fairly solid, nothing special.
Berardi - 7 Best of our defenders, stuck to the task well.
O’Kane - 2 Couple of usual sloppy errors before getting injured. No coincidence that we improved as a team once he went off.
Vieira - 8 Is the Vieira of last season finally back. A beast in the midfield.
Alioski - 6 Had lumps kicked out of him, but kept coming back for more.
Saiz - 6 Anonymous 1st half, but featured more second half. Pass of the night for Grot's miss.
Hernandez - 6 Hit and miss, but always likely to do something special.
Ekuban - 5 Needs sessions on how to finish one on one's.
Phillips - 8 Turned the game when he came on. Him and Vieira bossed the Fulham midfield for long spells.
Lasogga - 6 One good run when assaulted by Johansen, but otherwise quiet.
Grot - 5 Added a physical prescence, but deary me, that missed header.
Heck - 6 Sorted them out at half time, but we still are slow coming out of the blocks.
Referee - 3 Johansen and possibly McDonald should have been red carded for fouls on Lasogga and Alioski. Missed every foul on Jansson on their set pieces.
The major difference though is that last season we scored in the 5th minute which meant that Fulham had to throw everything at us as they knew that if they had lost to us then effectively their season was over as the gap would have been 8 points between us. As such we were happy to try and sit back and soak up pressure and try to protect our lead and hit Fulham on the break.
Sad news about the death1964white wrote: ↑Wed Apr 04, 2018 12:21 pm Lucky to make it to Woodall Services as there was an horrendous road accident on the M62 at Howden yesterday morning with a lorry carrying a mobile home crashing into the central reservation into oncoming traffic sadly ending up with a fatality causing absolute mayhem. Still closed at 3am so diversions both ways made it an even longer day. Just to make it a more daunting journey the MI was closed in Leicestershire
Better performance than last season when we were battered & got lucky to come away with a point
The form of Vieira & Phillips
Beaten by a far better outfit
Our fans were fantastic, amazing support/atmosphere
Another slow start
We created chances my granny could have scored, they signed Mitrovic in January who has netted ten goals in eleven games. We signed Ekuban & Grot to replace our 30 goal striker
Defence was all over the place as the Cottagers cut through us like a knife through butter
We are a poor team generally, so many lightweight players
Another two players injured taking it's toll to nine players in the treatment room now
Officials gave us nothing
Our best players in the squad Pontus, Samu & Pablo looked very frustrated as they trudge off the pitch at the end
6 Peacock-Farrell - 6 Couple of decent saves, feel sorry for the young lad
5 Dallas - 5 Gave Sessegnon and Targett so much space, at times marking 50 yards away, got done so many times
5 Jansson - Sad to say Fullham forwards were to clever for him
5 Pennington - A sticky toffee
6 Berardi - the usual endeavour from Gaetano
1 O’Kane - We improved when KP replaced him, hopefully he's out for the season.
7 Vieira - getting back to his best
4 Alioski - kicked out of the game, too lightweight
6 Saiz - Improved as the game went on, two wonderful passes in the 2nd half, the ball creating an open goal for Grot was a peach
6 Hernandez - Desperately tried to drag us back into the game
2 Ekuban - Not an instinctive striker, cost us the game in the end & he knew it on his knees with his head in hands as Fulham broke away with ease & Mitrovic showed him how the job his done !
7 Phillips - Turned the game when he came on. Him and Vieira bossed the Fulham midfield particularly in the 2nd half
4 Lasogga - one decent run when cynically chopped down
3 Grot - Miss of the season as he headed the ball into the Leeds end.
Another hands on heads for our fans
6 Heck - Sorted out the problems at half-time, played some nice football in the 2nd half. A lost cause for him with this squad of players, we are simply not good enough
3 Referee/Linesmen - gave us nothing & was very generous to the Fulham boys
Puts things in perspective Cjay
Like I said in my reply to Faiip the performance last season is immaterial in comparison to this season as our early goal last season dictated the way we played with us happy to try to hang on to the 1-0 lead from our 5th minute goal. Very nearly worked with Fulha only creating a couple of decent opportunities, Leeds missing a great chance to go 2-0up and Fulham's equaliser being in the 5th minute of extra time.

One man killed & two others with life-threatening injuries
If the lorry driver was prating about on his phone or the accident was caused by careless driving he needs jailing. So close to home for me as my cousin's lovely wife was killed by a foreign lorry driver two years ago
Because Vieira & Phillips had totally lost their form, both have obviously benefited from their break. Positives are Hernandez, KP & Ronaldo have all improved by using them sparingly under Hecky
Thanks Cjay, it was horrible time for our family/relatives. My cousin has never got over his loss, still heartbroken. He himself is a lorry driver but has given up his job because of the dangers on the road & the tragic circumstances that still haunts him !
