As D:Ream put it, things can only get better.
Not only are the first team struggling to get some results in the past couple of games, but the academy teams are having the same problems. Leeds U23s fell to a 2-1 defeat to their Crewe Alexandra counterparts yesterday, despite the appearance of a number of first-team players in the matchday squad.
However, it wasn’t so much the result that got people talking, rather all the stuff that went into it.
There were two main talking points that came out of the game. First there were some observers who felt that the struggles of the first team were making their way through the squads and are now having an effect on the youngsters.
Whole club is falling apart #heckingbottomOut

That was just like watching the first team – build up too slow and finishing woeful.

Did we win the possession game though????

So not only the first team having a wobble

Whilst others were quick to point out just how much Jack Clarke seems to have regressed in recent times. His lack of game time has been extensively covered in the past few months, so it’s not a real surprise to see him struggling. Although if I were Tottenham Hotspur reading these sort of comments, I’d certainly be somewhat concerned.
What happened to jack not the same player

Wow jack Clarke is gone shot of confidence

Id say spurs are chuffed with Clarke's progress since he moved. Gone in reverse gear.
