Not sure that last sub has done us any favours.

Roofe needs player to play off, unfortunately Ekuban isn't up to it.

Tell me what he's done that's been special then?

I'm not saying he hasn't played well, I just haven't seen anything outstanding from him.

Apart from the costly error for the goal Pennington has been excellent

Genuine question, is Kalvin Phillips on the pitch?

Saiz tries to snake his way through, but tries to beat one too many and is well tackled.

Notice how the Sky commentator seemed almost disappointed he made such a great tackle, yet he's been raving about Peacock-Farrell doing the basics?

Very mature positioning, excellent double save, recognizing danger, marshaling an injury ravaged defence . Collection of crosses

Not Gordon Banks outstanding just very good with a lot of potential

I think he's played well today and generally since coming into the team. It's really hard to judge quite how good he is with us shipping goals though. There were several occasions last year where Rob Green won us three points, that's how I judge a keeper to be outstanding.

Finally we have a keeper this season that can do the basics.

Oh well, we got what we deserved, though we were slightly better for parts of the second half.

On a positive note BPF and Pearce were impressive.

Very promising indeed. Heckingbottom might be learning something. Trying to play Football. Peirce must be our new Nr1 LB.
The squad might have more potential than I dared to hope for.

You have to score for a keeper to win you three points, plus Green never had this level of inexperience or out of position defenders in front of him

I appreciate that.

That's why I'm saying it's hard to judge quite how good he is with the situation we are in.

As opposed to immature positioning that costs us a goal?

What excellent double save?

As opposed to not recognising danger?

What marshalling did he do?

How many crosses did he collect?

Sorry folks....are we all clutching at straws ??

Another defeat...I would rather play rubbish and pick up points.....same old Leeds....have a few decent parts of the match....but still lose...pathetic.....Heckingbottom out !!!!

I am disgusted watching this drivel....Lasogga and Grot were shocking.
