Regular Vital Leeds contributor Tiny T gives us his usual home match day analysis.
Little to do today as the defence in front of him stopped the crosses and got the blocks in.
Solid performance, part of a mean defence.
Another who put in a steady performance at the back.
Kisnorbo 8 Star man
The leader in defence, organiser and nothing gets past him, when he doesn’t play we miss his authority.
His best game in a white shirt, got forward to support the attack and some telling blocks at the back. However, his distribution is still poor.
Not as good in the first half but when switched to the left in the second half drew a couple of good saves from the Keeper, unlucky to be subbed.
On the ball a lot, but a tendency to overpass the ball, had opportunities to shoot around the box but opted to pass.
A lot of running around, another who over passed around the area, if you have the chance shoot.
Stunning goal, battled well, delivery from set pieces today were over hit, he needs to bring variation into the delivery.
No change from the central defenders but his usual performance, got stuck in and brought others into the game.
Not at the races, missed a couple of early chances and faded after that.
Johnson -6- Steady 15 minutes nice to have him back
Gradel -6- Nothing flashy
A couple of issues to deal with;-
1 – Casper – I cannot condone the fans for there sarcastic cheers when he catches the ball, he is our Number 1 at the moment and keeps clean sheets most of the time so instead of being sarcastic show him support.
2 – Beckford – As with Casper, jeering our own players when being subbed is unacceptable over the last two seasons his goals got us into the playoffs and again this season he has scored critical goals, yes he had a poor game and should have scored. He shook hands as he left the field with Gradel, chose not to shake Simon Grayson`s hand and stormed off down the tunnel that is unacceptable and Grayson said after the game he will be spoken to in house on Monday and dealt with.
A very solid performance in front of a large Christmas crowd, Leeds bossed the game from start to finish and deserved the victory.
The victory was built on the solidity of the defence, but the players need to adopt a shoot on sight policy as we overpass around the opposition area.
