Poor ball out from Kalvin

Time for me to go lay down in a darkened room to get my heart rate back to normal.

Talk about needless nerves

Absolutely cruising at 4-1 and then needlessly allowed them back into the game. Once they got their third they never really looked like getting a fourth while we could have got a couple more.

Highly entertaining, but we need to shut down the game when we get a big lead.

Whew. 3 points in the bag.

Disappointed at conceding those last two but goals is what we need and goals is what we have. And the most important thing, those three points.

Phew.

I guess it wouldn't be Leeds if we didn't make it more difficult than it needs to be.

Nah mate, we weren't at our best all game. If we can win despite not being our best, that'll keep us up nicely.

I hope not, he defo needs matches.

On that showing we also desperately need a left back.

Cooper's first game, first game with Koch..Kalvin will get better we know he quality is there. Dallas had a decent game I thought a left wing back

I am told Harrison was in the lineup today. Is that so?

Costa and Bamford were outstanding.

Heart Attack FC, but I wouldn't have it any other way! Important to get 3 points on the board. After it weren't to 4-3 they never looked like equalizing tbh, we made it hard for ourselves. But 7 goals in 2 games is great going, we are clinical which is important at this level. We struggled as we had one less man in midfield, Roberts wasn't the right sub. It should have been Struijk or Shackleton.

Let me be first to say.... Bamford for England :eng:
I promise to be positive only for 20/21 :)

Thank god for that.

Pleased to get the win.

Costa and Paddy were great.

But far to open, the need for a proper 10 was clear, needed someone to control the game as it wore on.

Left back to and a goalie imo, Meslier should have done better on all 3 goals.

Fulham had more shots than us you wont survive if this continues.

Defences take a lot longer to build than attacks, it's all about understanding and teamwork and that takes time. Meslier needed a bit more protection, the pen and third goal were savable but proper clean chances for Fulham. He will be vunerable to low driven shots across him as he's 6'7 ..
