I don't know how we are just yet. We've played one of the best teams and lost, and played Bournemouth going 2-0 behind early on. The second half against Bournemouth was an improvement but then it was nothing less than i would expect it to be. The Everton game may tell us more providing there's no daft mistakes early on.

It is early days, we have to learn and do it quickly. We have enough talent in this squad and the younger players will start to get to grips with things. Positivity and support is what’s needed over the next few weeks.

Agreed.


There was a mountain of positivity before the game we just lost.

We are not in the bottom three.  Hopefully, we might get a surprise against Everton and not be in it next week either!

Our first few games in the championship were littered with personal mistakes, it happens with new team coming together. It’s unforgiving though.

I'd like to see us go with this side against Everton.  The full backs haven't done a lot wrong to be fair but I think we need to offer more going forward, but still have the insurance of defensive midfielders.  Grealish not stuck out on the wing but floating around, as he does.  I also appreciate that you are not supposed to pick the team on the coach on the way back from the game, but here goes;
                   Heaton
Guilbert  Engels   Mings   Targett
         Nakamba   Douglas
  Grealish   McGinn  Trezeguet
                 Wesley

The problem with width is what’s the point of crosses with no aerial threat up top? Grealish missed an easy header and without him you’ve got the likes of McGinn and Taylor in the box with very little chance of getting on the end of anything.

I like the look of Wesley in a lot of aspects but he doesn’t seem to be any threat in the air, movement not great, and that doesn’t half narrow down your options going forward.

We had 7 shots on target today and I feel, if Wesley isn't that useful, the goals have to come from elsewhere.  Targett and Guilbert are better, scoring wise that Taylor and Elmo.  All about opinions I suppose but the goals don't need to necessarily come from the centre forward alone.

FWIW, Benteke had 1 goal in his first 7 matches for us.. an established Premier League squad at the time. Let's see if Wesley can come good.

The difference being that there was a Rotherham or Barnsley that you could reset a bad run with. Here we're looking at resetting an early wobble against Everton.

I'm more angry about the referee and VAR. Billing should've been off.

Soft referee.

Martin Atkinson, Leeds fan.

Missed a hatful of chances against Fulham at their place. Looked shit.

I predicted us to win by two clear goals. So there was plenty of positivity and expectation. When will I ever learn. 😂

I am aching for you to be right. I thought we'd be up for it today, but something about the confidence everyone exuded was setting it up as a rude awakening for me.

We looked less threatening up front than we did in pre-season because we'retaking too many touches before we cross so instead of attackers and defenders running towards the goal they're stood waiting, this is why Targett and Guilbert need to come in before too long. I don't care if people think Elmo and Taylor have done ok, they're not getting forward quick enough or with enough quality to unbalance sides and we've got a couple of guys in reserve who look like they can do much better in that aspect.

Be careful with this "shots on target" comfort blanket. I remember most of them only just reaching the goalkeeper . I'm not sure he had to make any great saves.

The goal from Douglas was a beauty though. No one was saving that!

I think he'll be ok with a few more games under his belt. With all the ball and chances we made he didn't really have anything clean cut to run on or head.
