Had a feeling we’d struggle against these A holes

At least Leeds offers many a drinking hole to drown our sorrows. I’m only on the Coca Cola for now....

think this will be a really important team talk for Thomas and wonder if shape might or should be changed. the right side needs shoring up and we need more mettle in the middle. quite a tall order though and I'm not sure what to suggest.

Really struggling to get going again after a pretty decent start... HT soon, hopefully can regroup.

The most frustrating thing:

Leeds really aren’t that good, we look completely out of ideas however. Something has to change 2nd half, poor old Charlie’s had a really poor half and then got booked for a very good challenge.

We can’t get Bryan or Canos on the ball, Baptiste has been anonymous and Janelt is chasing shadows.

We look like we’re lacking confidence, and annoyingly so were Leeds until we gifted them the lead. Make no mistake about it, they should never have had that opportunity, suicide pass by Goode in the build up.

I would probably try 433 second half and swap Baptiste or Janelt over for Wissa. Something has to change in my opinion because we were just surviving since they scored.

This is a tough watch so far. Started brightly, but Bielsa took advantage of the early injury to swamp the midfield and we can't string more than three passes together. Leeds very aggressive in their press and faster than us all over the pitch. We're second to everything.

Let’s be honest. We played on Thursday night, we have a shallow and depleted squad playing on fumes and our talisman is out with COVID along with 2 of our standout players this season, can’t say I expected a lot out of today. 🐝

Difficult set of circumstances today. But we’re still in this.

We need to come out and play second half like their lives depend on it. Utter crap half of football. No shape, can’t pass, can’t hold the ball for 15 secs

Markybee said Goode did really well and was unlucky 🤷‍♂️

Brought the ball out, missed his pass, so he and rest of defence were out of position making Leeds attack easier leading to goal. Pretty straightforward error tbh!

All Brentford first 25 mins, I thought we have got this, then a mistake leads to a counter attack leads to a poor clearance and 1.0.

Since then Leeds look to have got a burst of energy and we looked tired, simply can’t see where a goal will come from.

Ref is pretty poor again, not giving us much.

At some point we must be due a tiny bit of luck somewhere somehow,

Started well, looked dangerous and gave away a goal from our own doing.

Commentary whoever they are, are having a w*** every time Leeds have the ball.

Charlie goode has no business in the premier league. He didn't play a role in the Championship last year for a reason. We won't be able to win any games with Charlie goode. He plays the ball right back every time and takes way too long to play the ball. In addition he is a pressing victim for every team. Norgarrd must be in the three-man backline and janson night right.

No need for excessive negativity based on that half. We have played much better this first half than at Spurs and compared to Everton second half.

If we can play as well second half we have a chance but the problem is who will put the ball in the net.

We are in a difficult period. I don't blame anyone, the fact is we don't have the quality of players we need at the moment due to injuries. It's hard to watch. Unfortunately today we are playing against the ref as well.

We are being pinned back a bit too much and at some point I would like to see us be braver and maybe bring Jensen on as there is definitely a goal for us here. But Leeds will feel they can get another too if they keep relentlessly attacking our right hand side.

Canos has shown some bright touches going forwards, Roerslev looks good. Janelt and Baptiste have been invisible and Fernandez doesn't look convincing.

The long throw has become too predictable and we are overusing it.

Still have a chance to get back into this game but will need to improve a lot this half.

Ref happy for Kalvin Phillips to run around kicking people. The one on Pontus would have been a yellow anywhere else. Far too much loose passing and failure to keep possession further up the pitch for us. Not over yet though, we're bound to have a good spell at some point like we had at Tottenham. Making it count is another matter, no sign so far.

Well, Goode got that ball.
Great tackle, very clearly got the ball 1st, when shown again it was an even better tackle, Then he got booked for it, you couldn't make it up, Ref clearly doesn't like us.

It's our passing that is letting us down, It's pathetic to say the least, I see all the Goode haters are out today!!!.

We started the half really positively, had them on the back foot but Leeds slowly got more into it and began to get control of the midfield and we have looked powder puff since then.
Nothing much in terms of good chances for us and when we do get a sniff, final ball or cross in meets no one. Not sure how we change things.
Been quite impressed with Goode again, really need to see Noorgard getting control in the middle.

We won last Sunday with him playing. He’s 6th choice CB for a reason. What’s he meant to do…say he’s not playing?

Through caution to the wind. If Wissa has legs, GET HIM ON. Get Jensen on, really mad an impact vs Spurs, will be desperate to make an impression again. Give Leeds something new to think about. Throwing everything to get something I can live with that, just don’t limp to defeat.
