Vital Leeds United contributor Tiny T gives us his view of the performance against Cardiff City.

A difficult one for Tiny T, as Leeds suffered a heavy 4-1 home defeat.

Wiedwald 4
He stood little chance with any of the goals. His distribution was poor.

Berardi 3
I thought neither challenge was a booking myself.

Pennington 3
A poor first half but he improved in the second half.

Jansson 3
He struggled against the big man.

De Bock 4
De Bock was the pick of the defence but that doesn`t say much.

Forshaw 5 Star man
The only one who you could say, he played ok.

Vieira 4
Vieira was overrun in midfield.

Alioski 3
Plenty of speed but he goes to ground too easily.

Hernandez 3
Poor decision-making.

Roofe 2
Not in the game and his touch was awful.

Lasogga 2
He hit the post with one effort and the bar with another but he should have scored with the header.

Subs
Dallas 4

He whipped the ball in for Samba to score the own goal.

Sacko 2
When he comes on the white flag is being run up the flagpole.

Grot
Not on long enough.

Summary
Where do I start.

Leeds were weak and lacking concentration. We had no fight until the game was over.

The front four is unable to keep the ball. We have a lack of squad depth when you looked at the bench, Dallas was the only one you would have wanted on the pitch from the start, and he should have started.

Referee was awful. The tackle on Dallas in the second half was a straight red and he didn`t see any card at all. He lacked control the whole game. He made the decision on Berardi`s second yellow with Madine rolling round on the floor like a sniper in the upper east stand had shot him. The card was issued and he jumped up and sprinted into position. That for me is the same as a player diving in the box.

We spent a lot of time in the January transfer window getting yet more players into the under 23s. It was not the place where it was needed in January. Our man doing the recruitment has got it wrong – Victor Orta, it is time to go
