Leeds (A) - Same as last year lads... kind of.

Bennett isn't perfect, but he's a damn sight better at defending than Bell. I certainly would be worried if bringing Bell on is in the manger's thinking.

Well, rock and a hard place

Armstrong would have to lose a leg to not play every minute of every game. Mowbray is utterly obsessed with him. A liability on the pitch for me, and a complete tosser off it from what I hear.

Would love to see Butterworth get a run of 5 games in place of Armstrong, wouldn't be surprised if he was a big improvement.

Be ever surprised if Mowbray is gone soon. Leave it to the New Year with the poor January acquisitions (a couple of tidy midfielders who aren't quite ready). He really is a poor manager given a carte blanche by pathetic owners. I despair over this once great club of mine

Did you actually see it or just listen on the radio?

I thought it probably was, either way, Adarabioyo totally bottled it, incredibly flimsy, cowardly, passive defending which sums up our defending as a whole, both today and in general.

We have been absolutely horrendous. On the ball, we have been nothing short of a joke, it has shown the stats on screen at half time and our passing accuracy is 49%. We have had 26.1% possession. No one has had any composure throughout the team.

Literally nobody comes out of that half with any credit, but Armstrong deserves a special mention because he has been particularly terrible. Not only does he do nothing going forward, he quite clearly cant be arsed and never does anything going back, regardless of what Mowbray says about him.

The manager is again to blame, partially for building such a poor squad, no matter what people say this squad is never a top 6 challenging one regardless of manager, although the current manager is doing a great job of making them look worse than they are.

Lets hope these comments look a little premature at full time but dont let the 2-1 scoreline fool you, we have been embarrassing.

What? He tried to pull out of the tackle and, if anything, was fouled by the Leeds player as a result.

Why he was pulling out in that position I have no idea, but he still clumsily made contact.

Amazed people are saying it’s clearly not a penalty, It’s soft but it’s a foul anywhere on the pitch

So he didn't give away a penalty?

Gallagher has been dreadful. Armstrong anonymous. 

How long until Graham and Rothwell come on?

80 mins when it's 3-1.

100% a penalty. Crap defending.

Gallagher out on the right then? Why not just bring Rothwell on for Armstrong and Graham for Gallagher?

The only reason for giving Armstrong another 15 mins was surely to help protect Danny's legs?

65 minutes and our "strikers" have not had a single shot. Nil. Zilch. Never mind not on target.... not a single shot.

Del had the only shot. Are these strikers even strikers ?
