Pass to a player in a better scoring position
Yes good idea, I wonder why he didn't think of that.

Leeds were the better side and deserved their win. We need to ask how half a Leeds team turned up and deserved to win.

Bowen and Rice won't be here much longer if we play like that more often than not.
Diop is a shocking footballer Big Mike was awful and Manu was to lightweight in that position.
We deserved nothing from that and got nothing in return.
Well done Leeds a good performance all round.
BTW Jack Harrison looks a decent shout.

Should start with crucifying himself.
I think Moyebslooked lost for large parts.
Fornals started the second half really well but got subbed.
Defence needed changing at half time.
Vlasic still offers nothing.

Poor old Soucek.

It’ll be another 18 months before anyone gives him a game off watching that today.

You’re a troll. All you do on here is troll.

I can’t believe you’ve been allowed to go on this long.
Add him to your foe list and don't quote him so the rest of us who already have don't need to see his drivel.

Just let him shout into the nothingness and he'll seen get bored and disappear. Calling him out just justifies his existence.

Every 50:50, every second ball. I don't know if it is tiredness or eaht but they wanted it more than us today. The mistakes were always going to happen but their pressure caused at least some of them.

We're as badly if not worse hit with absentees than most of the twats who get their games called off. We turned out what we had and were'nt good enough on the day.
Not the time for recriminations.

We are a top ten at best team without Rice.
To get CL,we need a LB,a LCB(or one capable of playing either) a CF (2 years and counting) and someone to replace Kral(he really must be so bad!)

I think some people will try and take comfort in the fact Soucek wasn't playing but reality is there are much, much bigger problems.
Defence appalling
Coufal terrible.
No effective CF.
Big money signing Vlasic a flop.

Big, big 2 weeks for Moyes but like I stated before etransfer window, people will be disappointed. Imo, approx £10 million budget and a loan or two.

We're 4th?

Are we bringing on Oko-Flex if we're a goal down or someone gets injured? no We're bringing on Yarmolenko who has been appaling for over 18 months.

All i'm saying is it highlights the need for a couple of new faces in.
Clear as day.

Both full backs and Diop need to be sitting in front of a screen all day tomorrow being shown how woeful they were today. These weren’t “bad day at the office” performances. These were inexcusable.

Coufal, normally dependable, was caught jogging back which cost us one goal (and should have cost us another, but for an extremely lucky VAR decision). Caught out of position repeatedly.

Diop - not going to repeat what we all saw.

Cresswell, half hearted and reminiscent of the post injury Cresswell that had no bottle.

I’m surprised by how much we missed Soucek today. Some people expected this in the thread before the game and they were spot on. Rice was a one man midfield today. Lanzini absent.

I also think Antonio had a good game with very little support.

I won’t say it was a must win, but it was a really really should win for us today and we fell miserably short. Leeds did a job. They identified our weaknesses, both before the game and during the game, and exploited these clinically.

Onto the next one, where I hope we come out with a serious amount of fight and fire to right such a wrong.

That 3rd goal. From the moment Diop got the ball he was almost falling over, nearly ran it straight to a Leeds player then plays a slack pass to Vlasic who makes a pigs ear out of it completely.

Over 50m for the pair of them... :eh:

Fair play to Leeds, putting on that performance with so many injuries and losing two in the first half. Deserved the 3 points, but f*** me, we were shocking. Looked knanckered, hardly any movement except from Bowen (our MoTM despite the miss). Diop was once called a "monster" by Mourinho; that's true, cos he scares the f*** out of me every time the ball is near him.

Man Utd, Brentford, Leeds, Southampton, Crystal Palace and Brighton at home has got us 2 points. That’s concerning.

Na Antonio was ok first half but second half he was embarrassing. Got bullied by Ayling.

To be fair Cluckers he might want to have a look at himself first.

His management of the game was a shambles.
Fair point Moley. You can tell that we've lost all semblance of a game plan whenever Masuaku and Yarmolenko come on.

One game too many for us .
Top 4 dream has gone , 6th at best plus EL win will have to do !

Antonio was awful today, got lucky with his mis control onto fornals fir our second. IF only we had an alternative fir days like these .
Didn't like the ream as no protection in midfield other than rice.
I suggest we send kral back tomorrow as he will never play fir us .
Only good thing from this is it may be a wake up call to the board and moyes that we need players now.
New LB CB and CF required
