I heard the commentator say they had twenty six shots on goal, no way we were going to win that.

It was a marvellous run and if fans were in the ground it gets people off their feet and this is what football is all about. Hes such and exciting talent, my only criticism maybe his final decision making, but even with that he creates so much that if hes bound to get the odd decision wrong.

I thought last night if the rest of our midfield was more of an influence it would have helped Jack. They coped very well with him and really closed down his space and got stuck in. Tha really how we should have dealt with their winger down the other end. Cash was very isolated and was torn apart.

Quite a lot of people are saying Jack should have teed Ollie up,no absolute certainty he scores, but really after that run he was going to shoot. Glory beckoned.

And for the second week running glory was missed. He should have shot earlier or played in Ollie. It was a great run though

Thought that was his worst game in a long time and he still had one off the line and probably should have scored the goal of the season.

Agreed he looks like he is trying to hard, maybe the England thing is weighing on him.

We also need to start creating in other areas because were otherwise well start to slip into last seasons bad habits.

It was back to Jack trying  to do too much which is as much to do with the performance of those around him.

I'd like to see him shoot quicker generally. It's great to have the drag back dribbling skill in his locker but he has a fine shot on him from outside the box. I'd like to see it more. Tried it twice on opening day, both shots whistled past the post, but we haven't seen it much since.

I think I read Petrov say that he thinks Grealish needs to get his shots off sooner.

But how many of those were after the first goal when Leeds took control and we decided to stop playing?   There's no saying it would have played out like that if we'd got the first goal, which we should have.

Yes Glory beckoned and then gave him the wanker sign for falling for it.

They'd had 10 by half time.

So 16 in the second half then, of which there were only 10 minutes played before the first goal.

By the 54th minute it was 13 shots to 8 but 2 to 4 on target. Even the goal came from a bit of a nothing shot (you'd back any premier league goalkeeper to make that save) that we didn't do well enough in covering. The collapse from then was disappointing though.

  Not sure where else to put this without creating another thread but fits with some of the previous discussion.

Slightly better than average I'd say. What that does show though is that throwing lots of people into the box doesn't lead to more chances, there's a sweet spot of having options to pass to but also them being able to make runs and find space. The teams who get that balance right regularly get the most shots away.
