The reason we looked dogshit, and this is always the case, is that we made another 3 changes. It’s not the unavailability of players, it’s the constant changes that destroy our cohesiveness. We need a settled side
Forshaw was not as bad as some, but he’s no world beater either. Klich can do more at his best, but you sort of know exactly what you will get with Forshaw
Tyler Roberts getting stick, nah fuck off, he wasn’t the problem today, some of you are acting like the pigeons in a B.F. Skinner experiment with your criticism, and actually we created a few things, held up the ball well, and had an attacking presence when he came on.
What was up with Raphinha,he wasn’t showing much for the ball… did we find out what his illness was? He was definitely out of sorts
Harrison got some decent crosses into the box, but then seemed to realise it was pointless exercise being a traditional winger in that sense as nobody was ever in the running onto them, so resorted to cutting it inside to whoever was near him in the edge of the 18 yard area
Llorente, he’s just a little theatrical for me. In principle I like him, but I want him to concentrate on his job
Rodrigo. If he was fully fit, that performance really was dire.
Struijk - he just makes a difference whatever he does. Harrison benefitted from having a decent player alongside him in the previous two matches, and today he brought some measure calmness and control to the middle once he had settled in after that moment he got caught in possession just after he came on
Is KP alright. He looked out of sorts if that was not an injury that ended his game.
Meslier - what a fantastic keeper this lad is. We are incredibly lucky to have him.
Dan James.. I don’t dislike him, but that (very) false nine position really is pointless
Moscow on the podcast. It’s not mindless optimism, it’s nuance and balance. What do you want, just a load of moaning when we lose with no examination of context?
Kit clash? As previously discussed
Can't argue with any of this ... apart from the Moscow bit. Issue I have is that when he wants to lay into someone or something, usually among the opposition, he doesn't hold back. When it comes to providing deserved criticism to some of the sacred cows on Leeds, there's a lot of kvetching, praising for minimal accomplishment, and lately, quite a bit of goal-post moving when he gets challenged on a point. Still enjoy listening to him, though.
