Positives: We now realize we are in a relegation dogfight.

Negatives: Llorente & Rodrigo. Will we or won't we this season? and i can't think of a suitable position other than 9. We have no bite in midfield without Phillips.

Positives - as Leeds1000 said, hopefully a wake up call

Negatives - The performance was awful but I can't stop thinking about the state of our pitch. The Elland Road pitch is my negative for this week.

+ From the hour mark onwards we looked like things were beginning to gel again.

- We failed to score.

Think this is quite harsh on Graham Potter, did a great job at ostersunds (and what a crazy first managerial job) and has done OK at Brighton. Always play decent football.

Anyway
Positive - kiko looked good and we only shipped one goal
Negative - not sure where to start...theres a startling lack of creativity and we didn't look like scoring at all

Positive - Philips will be back for the next game

Negative - people recognising that there is a colour by numbers way of beating us. Score, then shut shop. We’re currently incapable of opening a ten man defence - same as in the Championship.

Looked excellent today. I do love it when a player comes on and proves all those who criticised him wrong (including myself!). Let's hope he can keep it up and build from that because he really did look our best outfield player.

Positive - Struggling to find one, but I'd guess that KC not doing anything crazy maybe would count but that's probably because he didn't have much to do
Negative - Never really looked like scoring , and the state of the pitch was shocking although that's nothing to do with the result

Positive. We didn't concede from a corner.

Negative. Until that pitch gets some help we can forget about dynamic wing play.

That's what happens when there are so many square pegs playing he is left to cover the entire midfield on his own.

+ - Roberts showing what he can do with more than 10 minutes playing time or having to play AMF, just looks a better footballer than Paddy every time I see him

- - We lost

Positive: The second half of the season will be as fascinating as the first half. Especially if the teams below us start to pick up points.
Negative: Premier League managers have found out how to nullify BielsaBall.

He played a more forward role as we were behind, he wasn't asked to be creative and link play

Fringe players (Casilla, Roberts) did well
