Brum are getting swamped in the middle of the park and there's been little desire to press and fight for the ball. That and the passing in the final third has been abominable.

Nothing's impossible but unless they sort themselves out I can see Norwich getting another couple. Hope Birmingham are this shocking when we play them next.

Two gifted goals, gamesmanship & dirty play beat us last time we played Brum

Norwich didn't have loads of shots but still scored 3 goals. This is the major difference . If Leeds had a similar conversion rate the title would be theirs now. Norwich didn't look that comfortable on crosses into their area , a weak point maybe Leeds could capitalise on but it will be a very tough game in 2 weeks time.

Bielsa should have given Monk his Norwich dossier

Nice run and pass in a counter attack there, nearly lead to a second goal.

JAMES WATCH

Pacey on the counter attack, runs at defenders and tracks back defensively, but his crosses were all bad and his shot was well off target. A couple of times he overran the ball as well straight into the defenders.

Looks no better than what we have. I get Bielsa could make him better, but at £5m, that would be a very poor deal imo. There must be better out there for that kind of price.

1-0 Swansea. So no need to have a meltdown everyone, we stay top and 4 above 3rd.

Have to agree with that summary although I tend to think Leeds need someone pacey as an out ball and I'm sure MB would work his magic on him. SU didn't really threaten much and a good result for Leeds.

Yeah results not too bad with Sheff U losing and Boro only drawing. Gonna be plenty more ups and downs this season - it is just the nature of the championship where teams like Stoke and Swansea, despite having very good players, can find themselves in the bottom half. Not much difference between most teams and if we can cut out defensive errors we will be ok.

Bad day at the office but results around us not the worst. Everyones form is a bit hit and miss. We've been on a poor run but we are still up there.

Appears money doesn't always get you want you want, Villa's new £7m keeper not impressing at all.

Derby sign 38yo Ashley Cole
