Pontus Jansson, Pablo Hernandez and Kalvin Phillips are proving talking points among the Elland Road faithful.

Pontus JANSSON has been one of the best signings in years. Since he has been playing he has helped Kyle Bartley and together, they are beginning to look the real deal and defensive titans.

For the first time in years, we look like not conceding too many goals in a game and I am going into matches with more confidence and a belief that we can beat anyone in this league. The rest of the team have done well and should be applauded too.

Pablo Hernandez is doing the business and Chris Wood (who I have criticised) is far better in his all round play. Well done to the coaching staff and the players for bringing fresh hope and breathing new life into a fallen giant.

Long may it continue!

I was wrong about Pontus

I’ve been critical of the signing of Jansson.

He’s still only played a handful of games for us, but the few he has played in, he’s apparently been excellent (I don’t go to matches as I refuse to do anything that even hints at supporting Cellino).

I consider that he may well be injury prone, and that’s not me trying to find an angle to criticise anyone.

After all, if he’s that good, and he’s found himself almost without a club, there has to be a solid reason for that.

And so, I’m on here to say that I have made an error of judgement about him. So to anyone who’s remotely interested in what I’m saying, I got this one wrong, and admit it. Sorry.

Just keep on plugging away

The longer we keep playing like we are the more I will be convinced we might have a team at last.

We are harder to play against for sure and I’m hoping that both centre-backs’ attitudes rub off on everyone else.

I was sure this season was going only one way – a scramble to stay away from the bottom but... perhaps just perhaps we can have one eye on that coveted sixth place. The next few games will tell.

Phillips has been immense for us

I am surprised that there was no mention of Kalvin Phillips in Noel Whelan’s latest YEP article.

Having watched him against Ipswich and Barnsley, he has been immense.

Alongside Eunan O’Kane we seem to have a battling midfield again. We’re not missing Liam Bridcutt as much as I thought we would.

No area of the park now looks suspect, but we do need to put a few more of the chances we create away.
