Frank looked rattled pre match and the the team matched his mentality as they walked on the pitch. Whatever the spy was intended to do it worked. Frank got far too involved in the occasion and it effected the team, the same happened at Stoke, the match was built up to something it shouldn’t be, you could see Lampard and his staff arguing with rowett and his. The difference was the stoke staff were giggling about it, they knew they had got to them and we were shocking that night as well.
Now we have a massive problem with conceededing goals from crosses, look back over our last few games we’ve conceded 2 goals directly from crosses last night, 1 against boro, 2 against Norwich, 2 against Sheff U and this is just 4 games, go back through the season and it’s scary. What’s worrying me the most is we’re more than halfway through the season and it seems we’ve done nothing to rectify this massive flaw, it’s happened with the same regularity all season. Are we not training to prevent this or do we just simply not have any defenders at the club that can stop it?
Where has the early season football philosophy gone? Where’s the pressing? Where’s the quick incisive passing? Last night was as bad if not worse as the 2-0 loss away at wolves last season but Leeds are nowhere near as good!
