We're probably not going to win the League.

I had a feeling this would happen. I was fearfull but optimistic in the match thread but to be honest we were second best everywhere tonight.

Very generous Mr Shin. We got what we deserved. Dean Smith also a -5 for me. Tactically destroyed. What a terrible way to enter the weekend.

For all Smith's excellent tactics against liverpool he had no answer to Leeds tonight.

Smith got absolutely destroyed by Bielsa, hopefully he learns from it. Right it the fuck off quickly and move on.

12 out of 15 points is beyong anybodies expectations.

If there's something good to come out of it, maybe it's a need to improve the intensity of our game. I sensed that there was a bit of complacency; we got mugged, big time. Against Leicester we managed the game well; tonight we never started and conceded too much to the well-organised oppo.
Sounds like we gave Bamford far too much space and time.

Good test for Dean and the players: come back stronger.

Reality check tonight, we had a few chances but Leeds were better than us all over the pitch. I have never rated Bamford but his finishing was exceptional tonight.
Leeds work hard and with plenty of skill, I think we were lucky to only lose by three tonight.

They were quicker, sharper, and just better.

Once Jack missed his goal of the season chance, we fell apart.

Bamford pisses me off so much though, all the backbone of a jellyfish and then the c*** scores three.

Ridiculous first post to the post match thread. Leeds deserves it and probably by more. In hindsight we should have been much tighter everywhere.

Dreadful to a man really. An all round shocking display. Leeds are excellently prepared and coached and we set out as if we had no clue what we were up against. Start of the season had been great, but it’s a really poor night for Dean and his staff. We looked totally unprepared and worse than that didn’t do anything to change it once it was clear we were struggling.

Really bad and all of them should reflect on that.

Not too down.had to happen sooner or later. I thought Leicester would do us. How do you come back from that?

Thank god we've got 12 points already. Don't think our midfield got anywhere near theirs  and never got a foot in. Impressed with their pressing and fast movement

Our build up play looked so lethargic  compared to theirs. They won the ball back far too easily.
