Have to say i agree with Orta and Co on Flint, BCFC wanted far to much for a guy even BC fans dont rate as a defender that much, scores goals but isnt that good a defender apparently, certainly not for £10million.

Helander was a good shout but that did seem to be more paper talk then anything.

Harlee Dean was the one!!!!!

Think Orta had a snobbery towards the English leagues, and because of that he missed out on some bargains, Dack (who we are now linked with for £5mil plus) was available for less then £1mil, Maddison who we continue to be linked with for 3-5mil was available for about 1m right up until August 31st and Dean cost Blues £1.5mil

Should have snapped him up summer, opportunity gone now !
They didn't want to sell, except for silly money. Now you can see why.
There are non more easily offended than those that want to be.

Thought he was disappointing today, actually thought Penny did better.

No idea what he was doing over the left side of the box when Sharp was free as a bird in the middle, wasnt stopping the cross, wasnt tracking Clarke, so what was he doing?

Bit later Billy Sharp (5ft7), got away from Jansson and should have done better with a header.

And bit later again, cross came across the box and Jansson had no idea who was behind him and ended up being beaten to the ball, luckily the contact wasnt great.

And up the other end, free header, should have done better.

He did some good things, but no more then average at best imo.

Whilst a lot of people knock Cooper, and certainly at times it is warranted, he and PJ have got used to playing with each other and a change of defensive partner can really effect your game which may have been the case today.

Thought he was really good today

I lost count on how many headers he won, several blocks too.

Without him we'd have lost that game by 4 or 5 goals

Pennington was shaky, some of clearances are not clean (said it to my mate in the first-half) but he did grow into the game

Pontus was a rock clearing so many balls in the air from all the set-pieces we continually gave away plus all the crosses when our flank players allowed the blunts to get round the back of us so easily.

It's blatantly obvious that someone like Pontus may make the odd error when he is so involved in the game as opposed to those who go missing & contribute nothing throughout the match

Always hard to know at times who's fault it is when someone scores/has a good chance. For example on the header that Sharp should have scored it looked like PJ was ball watching and allowed Sharp to get away but it might have been the case that he wasn't meant to be marking Sharp and as such was simply reacting to the danger as someone else lost him.

Excellent yesterday.

Everything Cooper wasnt, he was.

Dominant, positive, solid, strong.

He must get so frustrated, must know he is playing in a team thats going to finish below last season.

Will he give us another season?

Wouldn't blame him if he didn't.

Circle of life these days in football, maybe he gets on better with Heck than he did with TC. There's always hope but nothing you can do if a prem club comes calling

Sounded very frustrated when he received his MOTM award last night.

What a collosos

We'd be fighting relegation without him :shock:

One more yellow card & we'll have another two defeats on our hands

Pontus will be off at the end of this season, he must look at the average/poor defence around him
& think why am I playing for this club.

He can do much better, if he does leave I wouldn't blame him one bit. The World Cup tournament could determine his future for next season.

Pontus & Saiz are two good reasons why I enjoy watching Leeds this season
