Quite easily our worst performance of the season and the last couple of seasons. We were dreadful!!
Our defence was atrocious; Holloway admitted in the post-match press conference that he’d never seen anything like the defending on show last night.
Danny and Georges were unusually shaky and looked unsettled by the pace and skill of Matt Fryatt in the Foxes attack.
ur midfield seemed to go missing for half the match, Cookie and Wild Thing were our only sources of attack. Cookie showed some nice pieces of skill and set up two goals (exactly what’s asked from a winger) whilst Gareth showed his usual character and won plenty of free-kicks down his wing.
Up front we were very poor. The players on show were not given the best of service but they still gave the visiting defenders an easy ride. Nygaard and Furs gave far too many harmless free-kicks away and were too far apart to make there flicked headers worthwhile.
Langers and Lomas were hardly in the game at all in the centre of midfield and like our forward line they were too far apart and left huge gaps from which Leicester could run the midfield.
Matty Rose had a stinker at left-back and Biggy was for once very unreliable and unsteady.
Holloway’s promised big changes for Leeds if the players don’t buck there ideas up and on this showing he’ll have to make those changes.
Stand-by for a full extract from Ian Holloway & Rob Kelly’s post match press conference.
