Apologies if this has already been covered but why didn't we get a pen for the blatant pull on Tyrone's shirt?

...because we're not one of the sl6.

With Smith I imagine he would have taken responsibility for his failings, but with Gerrard it seems the opposite

When did Smith do that then?

Do the players actually believe in what they are being asked to do? As far as I could see it was a big boot from the back, hoping to finish up somewhere near one of our players up front; in midfield they got the ball looked around to see if anyone was moving or looking to receive a pass and found that no one was whereupon by this time an opponent had clattered into them. On the very few occasions we looked to achieve our aim of getting the ball into our forward man (Watkins) who then decided to hit it straight at the Leeds keeper. There seemed to be no energy throughout the team, no one was moving or looking to receive the ball. If things do not change then I am afraid improvements to obtain further capacity can be forgotten about.

Ashley Young has been a big positive these last few games, as has the apparent return to form of Martinez Konsa and Mings (although hardly troubled yesterday).

Beyond that it is difficult to find any positives, and what's even more worrying is I don't care anywhere as near as much as I used to. I'm sure that's only a temporary mindset, but worrying nonetheless.

Luiz is a big positive for me too. Hasn't sulked since the move to Arsenal fell through and was the dominant midfielder on view. A lot more spiky and physical in the challenge which was long overdue. Didn't miss Kamara in the slightest.

Bednarek worries me I have to say. The one time he was ran at they nearly got in for a goal. Milk would turn faster than him.

It's the other end of pitch that the problems. All good players in their own right but the mix seems wrong. Buendia and Coutinho occupying same space again. Ramsey not breaking into the box enough for me either.

Agree about Bednarek, but expect Chambers would have come on, if available, and he is another one, we can add to our injury list, has an abdominal injury, but should be available for the Forest match, so I understand. Regarding the positives from yesterday, I would say McGinn, was probably, the most pleasing, best performance for a while.

I think McGinn probably saved us a point with that last ditch tackle right at the end.

He did, it was fantastic defending. I'd just cursed him to high heaven for his shit shot the previous minute, in the pub I was watching the game in Catford so I made sure to clap vociferously when he did the last-ditch thing. I was probably over-compensating, it was only me and a polite Leeds fan watching the game.

In fairness, it would have been suicide to try to play out from the back. Leeds press very hard and we’d have ended up in all kinds of trouble. I have no issue playing percentages at the moment. Like it or not he’s put points ahead of performances in the last 3 games and will continue to do so until we climb the table or he loses his job.

Leeds United 0-0 Aston Villa: Jesse Marsch 'felt sorry for fans' at Villa's tactics - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/63111814

I didn't think Leeds could appoint a bigger twat than Bielsa but oh boy how they have managed it. What an utter titflap honestly. Making a report to the authorities, what about you absolutely dumb ******? The away team trying to draw the sting of the home team? That's what away teams do you great stupid arsecloth.

I really hope I can get to the home game against them so I can get a seat near Jesse Marsch and hurl abuse and vegetables. The twat

Was fortunate to have a ticket yesterday.
Although being right a the back and having to crouch down to see our corners in the first half was a bit of a hassle.
Still another ground ticked off I suppose.


One I've not been to yet. My lad is at Leeds Uni so hoping to combine visits next season maybe

Towards the end of his time at Villa, Smith came out with the same crap as Gerrard. I wish they would tell it as it really is as us fans are not that daft to believe the bullshit. I wonder if our 26,000 on the waiting list has gone down a tad with our excruciating performances so far this season. If things don’t get a bit more exciting with our general play, they can scramble for my season ticket next season.

Is "scrambles" still a thing? I do hope so.

Indeed😂 I propose that titflap should be entered into the Oxford English Dictionary.
