Well it has been a while since we have been shafted by the ref.

Still level on points with 6th

Really? Come on? It could’ve easily been 3 or 4.

Well, a game that realistically even the most optimistic of us were expecting to be a stretch too far. Looking at the other results we couldn’t have asked for much more in terms of damage limitation.

Inevitable meltdown incoming on here tonight but far, far more important will be our results against the likes of Cardiff, PNE and Forest. We all know we’re targeting 6th not 2nd and we’re as close as we were at kick off. 

Not the end of the world and most predicted a defeat but yet again we have failed to turn up there.

Disappointing after Wednesday. But probably expected. It was like an FA cup tie with us playing the part of the plucky underdogs.

We should have started with 3-5-2 and given ourselves a better chance. We just can't defend the flanks with a midfield 2. It's like Groundhog Day.

Just thinking that, perhaps 3 at the back might have helped congest the midfield a little.

Not even I will have a melt down after this 

Let's be brutally honest....both teams at their best, and we are nowhere near on the same level as Leeds .

The fact we are so near to them is more to do with their cocks up, more so then our successes 

Yeah agreed. They are an exciting, cohesive side. That said, our team of internationals and highly paid players should never be THAT far behind them in terms of quality. It was like watching a League One side playing a Premier League team today, and that's really not good enough.

That was shockingly bad.

LJ got that horribly wrong there.

 

Imagine starting a centre back right back....because you don't trust your two right backs.

....then having your former right back you didn't seem good enough tear you a new asshole 

....only Bristol City

I’m not sure any selection under LJ would have got anything to be fair, Leeds are just much better. So maybe for once we agree.

Yet Kalas played RB in two promotion seasons for other clubs.

Leeds out of form with a dodgy goalkeeper. Of course they were gonna keep a clean sheet against us. So little going forward.

Spot on,let’s be honest we are a hard working side that give it their all but that’s about it,I swear a manager who played to their strengths rather than setting  up not to lose would get a whole lot more out of this group of players

Not sure if I’ve missed something. How did the ref shaft us? 😆

The stone wall penalty maybe?

I am not denying that Leeds should of been out of sight. But to miss a blatent handball in the area would of likely put us level

I knew errors were often due to a rush of blood somewhere but I thought it was usually people's heads?

If you are a Leeds fan you are going to be relieved, and wonder how you did not win by more.

We somehow kept it close enough that I am still a bit irked by the penalty call, and maybe with Well’s one chance who knows?

Afraid with only 2 in CM we were always going to get overrun by Leeds, poor tactical mistake by LJ. At least other results were kind to us.

Very poor - anyone could've seen that wasn't going to work. Bizarre oversight

Massengo is currently no better than Liam Walsh. Far to weak at the moment. Also Eliasson has gone missing the past few weeks 

I think more the problem is he's so indecisive with and without the ball. Really slow to release it and quite often reacts too late to get in on 50/50 balls.

I’ve thought that, would it be too cynical to think that  this coincides with the reported news that he’s not signing a new contract? Just not looked at the races, or teams have worked out how to play him. He’s definitely got Jamie Patterson’s talking ability. Can’t have 2 players on the pitch who can’t tackle against leeds

OK.

Leeds should have battered us but thanks to wayward finishing and the wonderful Dan Bentley we didn’t.

 We moved the ball about slower than them and that is where having a regular team and formation wins over fancy set ups  and clever team changes .

We haven’t lost any ground over the top six, merely showing that we aren’t quite up to automatic promotion, yet.

A disappointing day but overall, another game down and still in the hunt for a top six finish .

Compared to the others above us except for Preston. Yes. 
 

but at the end of the day still a lot of football to be played. Certainly not going to throw my toys out the pram because we lost 1-0 at Leeds.

The league position has no bearing on if they are playing to their full potential. You've not answered the question.......

I can handle most things, and I understand it was difficult conditions, but to not even look interested, especially giving our league position has angered me. Luckily teams around us had a mare, so it's not affected us that much, but the players have to take some responsibility for today. 

That was outrageous.

Play an ill Fam maybe! 🤣

Not sure but 442 away at Leeds with those players in that 442 seemed a bit too open to me.

There's numerous other things LJ could have gone with other than 442.

Thought there were moments in the game where we started to play quite well but just lacked a final ball.

When palmer came on we seemed to get back to how bad we were at the start of the game and that lasted up to 94th minute.

Very poor.

Can’t do much when you are being constantly overrun, my thought is that he’s sometime guilty of holding onto the ball too long, but at least he looks to pass it rather than aimlessly pump it upfield
