Huge huge win, I was critical of the first-half performance especially, but right now fuck performances over wins, give me wins, absolutely delighted, well done Howe, the coaches and the players. That was some shift in the second half by all of them and we defended really well at times, Leeds are shit mind, but we still found it tough against their reserves basically.

We only held on because Lascelles was off. 

That's probably why didn't look as shaky and getting caught over the back once he departed.

I'm drained now like. It wasn't a pretty performance by any means but we showed heart and that means everything. Jonjo punching the air and leaping off the ground at the final whistle was priceless.

Manquillo didn't put a single foot wrong when he came on. I'm almost certain he blocked 100% of the attempts to either get past him or cross pass him, then used the ball well when he had it.

Aye seen Dummet get alot of flack today, thought he was solid enough vs Raphina. Never going to come out clean against a player like that

 

He definitely wasn't like. Raphina got past him every single time. He misplaced passes in familiar fashion and almost cocked it up with the ball to Dubs. He doesn't have the recovery pace anymore either. Game changed when Manquillo came on isn't a coincidence. He's a lame horse that needs to be put out of it's misery. Awful player.

GET THE FUCK IN!!! 
 

I fucking love football :lol: You really have no idea what to expect. 
 

Fully expected us to get stuffed. And for the first 30 minutes, it looked like we were going to be. But we really grew into the game, every one of the lads. The more we grew in confidence, the more Leeds retreated. 
 

The one player who epitomized this in-game growth was Willock. Began the game a little lethargic and felt like it was going to be the same old from him, but then he began to stretch them. His runs were incisive, his passing effortless, and he should’ve scored in the end with that beautiful passage of play with ASM. 
 

Now onto Wood. He finally offers us a focal point at the tip of our formation, and in doing so occupies at least one defender at all times, leaving the likes of ASM and Fraser to run into space. However, for a majority of the game, he lacked any and all instincts that make up a striker. “Wood was on his heels,” as the commentator put it during one half chance where he could have pressured their defender on the line. But it just feels good to have A body up there now. And I am hoping he comes good in the way of better positioning, goals and killer instinct.

ASM let the game and more pertinently the ref get to him and he dropped, decision making (bar the Willock chance) is getting worse too, he needs to start trusting his team mates more.

The whole team were immense today. Just need to stop ASM from having petulant strops and sitting on his arse.

Wood made some really good flick one today, Someone like Linguard could feed off those

Its not the first time. He was caught out so many times from the wingers against Watford too. Dummett isnt a great defender, decent in the air, but slow, terrible marking. No wonder the left got safer when Manq came in and fucked Raphina off.

He looked fantastic, like a Rolls Royce full back compared to what we've been watching.

I thought he was his least selfish today. Passed many times to other players.

Didnt think he was as bad as that [emoji38] Aye he got his arse ripped apart a few times in first 25 mins but generally thought he wasnt terrible. Manqy did look better though

Mystifying that he hasn't been an automatic starter when fit, tbh.
