I can't stand watching him to be honest! He played awesome, but he's so casual with his play that he makes me constantly nervous :roflmao:

Love Bartley's goal

Only thing I don't like about him scoring goals
is his arse-bump celebration. That looks so
dangerous and it looks like he could hurt himself
by jarring his spine.

What would be a more suitable celebration?
Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.

Well that caps off a great week.....6 points from two tricky fixtures, albeit at home, and heading into Xmas with a real platform to build for next year. All this has been achieved with our squad stretched to the limits and whilst not pretty at times I liked GM's quote today "winners win" and that is what he has instilled in this group, a real desire to win, something we've been devoid of for way too long.

Predicted Leeds to win 2-0 with Bartley to score one of the goals in our Leeds Score/Scorers competition Paddy :P

Only watched the last 20 minutes or so, but once again Sacko was literally running his marker into the ground. Love players who can get stronger as the match wears on, while the opposition weakens. Another team effort, clean sheet, and they still aren't playing that well.

Sacko' best part of the game was the last 20 before that was a little profligate and the final ball was poor.

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

For me this game showed great character and a team that are passionate and want to win.
After 80 mins of struggling to create any clear cut chances and the game heading for a 0-0 we started to up it and have a good go and with time running out up popped Bartley to raise the roof at ER. The players celebrated like we'd won the league, it meant that much to them. At full time the atmosphere was as good as it's been for many a season. I'm sure this result which was ground out by a team who play till the final whistle will build yet more confidence ahead of a busy schedule. With Hernandez, o'Kane and Wood to come back it's looking like a bright New Year for us all supporting the Mighty Leeds United. :tup: :-D

An very poor first half performance, however, we played better in the second half.
Player Ratings
Green 6- Had one routine save to make during the whole game, distribution was very poor.
Ayling 6- Defended well but missed two big chances.
Bartley 7- MOTM Superb once again won every tackle and got the winner.
Jansson 7- Wasn't tested much but did everything he had to do.
Taylor 7- Defended well, didn't get forward often.
Phillips 6- One or two good passes, however, a mostly average performance.
Viera 7- What a player Ronaldo is going to be so much more consistent than players like Lewis Cook etc.
Sacko 6- One or two good moments, however, didn't really create anything.
Roofe 6- Good first half, quieter second half .
Dallas 7- Improved a lot in the second half created 2-3 chances.
Doukara 4- Absolutely dreadful performance, he had the service, however, his movement off the ball was unbelivevably poor. Missed an unbelievable chance as well.
Subs:
Berardi 7- Playing out of position, however, defended and got forward well.
Bridcutt 7- Changed the game, we started to win everything in midfield and Bridcutt was conducting the game.
Antonsson 5- Very Quiet.
Also a keen Barcelona supporter since 2004-2005 (when they were average.)
