Forest Green have played a couple of teams already including a good win over Torquay. So nice little test
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"

Another nice move Dallas should have hit the target though form there

Dallas shot, poor effort, should have done better.

Well! Thank Goodness for you guys. This Leeds United website has to be the worst ever. It took us an age to even get ro the game, I saw the last 20 mins of first half and then gone, never to be found again. They really ought to get the site sorted! :x Using your comments as updates now :)

Boy, do we need a striker.

I've only seen the second half, but if we had a finisher or two up top we might score a lot of goals.

Hernandez through on goal, good save, PH should have scored and seems to have hurt himself.

Very good save from the FGR keeper, the best chance not scored from by Hernandez

2-1 win, promising performance though we were lacking match sharpness...No poor performances. Not sure it's worth doing ratings though and MOTM is difficult

Very encouraging

See Carlos Corberan on the bench with Bielsa.

Good move given he can speak English and the work he did with the u23s.

First one was a snapshot he probably had more time with
Nice finish for the second
third one was a wayward pass too close to the post

Didn't see the fourth, first game back, got to expect some rustiness from everyone

Scored 1 assisted 1 and maybe should have had a penalty...
Looked a definite pen to me

Ayling (first-half), Phillips, Forshaw & Dallas really impressed me tonight

Can't believe how calm & collected Phillips looked on & off the ball

Should have scored ten tonight

4 missed chances from Roofe
2 x Alioski
1x Hernandez

Penalty not given

Dallas, Hernandez, Saiz all went close

Not clinical enough
