Refreshing to hear a player take responsibility, especially out loud, for last season--says a lot about his character:

"Last season was difficult especially the second part. I wasn’t at my best level to be honest, and it is important I realise it. I want to be the best and I cannot lie to myself and say, ‘oh, it was the team’.”

“To go and play somewhere and see Leeds in the middle of the second division and think, ‘oh no’. For me, I had to stay and give my best to get Leeds in the top two places.”

2/10 that is extremely harsh. First goal is on of those dinked shots that either hits the outstretched arm and the goalkeeper gets all the glory or suggestions he was not big enough if it goes in.
He had no chance with the Smallbone goal it was to well placed. The other shot he got a foot to and it was going wide before it went in off Struijk.

He was a 5 at worse for me and a 5.5 at best. There were worse players than him on the pitch for us IMO. No one was less than a 3. When a 5 is average.

Maybe I was a bit harsh, DDB

Although, if he stands on his feet & makes himself big as he usually does, he saves that shot.

You make a good point on the third goal.

Meslier was jittery at a couple of crosses, dropped a simple catch that could have been costly.

The whole defensive set-up except for Pascal was a mess which obviously didn't help Meslier's cause.

Those who I rated 2/10 were totally ineffective & contributed to our defeat

Please enlighten me, why Dan James deserved a higher rating than 2/10

4 decent passes & 1 cross in 80 minutes :shock: :roll:

Every time he was on the ball our attacking moves broke down, he is so inconsistent & frustrating, it's unbelievable, we might as well be playing with ten men, Dan should be used as a bench player only, against tired legs late in a game. If we continue to use passengers, expect more performances/defeats similar to Saturday's shambles.
