Another very poor showing at Elland Rd. No will to attack and get men forward & big Dave might as well have sat with me. He never broke into a sweat.
Carvalhal will need to get more adventurous since the Chairman has declared he wants attractive football. This is rank. Tactically, I think he's lost right now. He has quality players at his disposal but is getting nothing from them. And he is quoted after the game as saying we were good value for a draw. He saw a different game to me.
Can it get better? It certainly can't get much worse.

I hear you, but Westwood was injured, as was our captain and other usual starters were rested, so a point away at Leeds wasn't a bad result.

I think the first two games of the season flattered us a bit. Bristol are poor and look like relegation fodder and Mansfield were a team that should have been beaten which we did well. I'm not saying the team are bad but more that we are still gelling and need a bit more time to be a good coherent team, we have 11 new players this season way more than previous years. From what I have seen there are signs of real progress we just need to be a little more consistent. Still think this season is about getting a strong high table finish and I think this team and manager is more than capable of achieving this.

i just think anyone that thought we were just going to come out of the gate murdering teams gave themselves some unreal expectations. I don't think it was terrible,I would have liked to seen more fight after we conceded the equalizer but all in all I'm not too upset about coming out 1-2-1. We rested some players and I think we have seen some good from a lot of different players. I think sougou looked alright, obviously matias looked great and sasso looked very good I thought. Lees did great except for that terrible foul, lee looked quite good and hutchinson looked good too. I thought nuhiu looked pretty pedestrian though just didn't do that much for me. But all in all I'll take an away point and move on to the next match. Cup match against oxford should see a lot of new faces I would assume.

I agree we should make allowances for time to get new players working together. However , 7 of the players who finished that game at Elland Rd played under Stuart Gray. That's not a team that needs gelling!
My point is that tactically we are looking naive. In both the last 2 games , the centre forward has been totally isolated. The wingers have stayed very wide, and the midfield have not got forward in support. The result? Well , we registered only 2 shots on goal against Reading , and about the same yesterday. That's simply not good enough!
The inclusion of several quality buys should have improved our play and not made us as sterile as we have looked. The opposition has not been good either. Leeds were there for the taking. But, we weren't interested. Ipswich could and should have seen us out of sight long before the end.
Without any further additions, we have many more options than we had last season. I am just very disappointed that our system is failing to generate any acceptable level of excitement. This MUST change and soon.

I feel ya I really do but unfortunately it is what it is and we just got to ride it out and take the good with the bad. I personally am fine with starting a little slow and getting hot later if it happens that way. Let's just hope it does and we get hot later when we need it more. It's just way too early to be too critical.

Norwich we'll always field a captain but Loovens is the captain and was held out and you would presume that if he was unavailable then Westwood would wear the armband and he was unavailable as well. I think that is what he was referring too.

Thanks USA.
Yeah, Loovens is the C and Lees is the VC.
I am sure it was an honest mistake made by Mr Norwich, lol.
We all make them.

It's strange USA, because sometimes Big Dave plays really well and shows many attributes, except for heading, but when he is bad, he is terrible.
