Have your say

Do you think Garry Monk’s options are limited in the attacking department? The Elland Road faithful have their say.

The defeat at Bristol City was disappointing to say the least.

We created enough chances to put Bristol firmly to bed but sadly, we could not hit a barn door. Kemar Roofe, for me, just does not do it and the truth is we desperately need at least one more striker with a pedigree.

There is too much pressure on Chris Wood and I am not going to knock him. Liam Cooper did a good job and we are decent at the back as well as midfield, but as I say, up front we are sadly lacking.

Tuesday night could have been much better and so could the referee who quite frankly was lousy.

Anyway, onwards and upwards. It was a bit annoying but we will get over this.

Whites still on the right track

WE deserved something from the game at Bristol City. We had the worst defence and midfield – according to some – a few weeks ago, the players have improved quite a bit the last few weeks.

Hadi Sacko will learn how to deliver that final ball. He did the same on Saturday as he did on Tuesday night – got into great positions to set somebody up and failed to deliver. The lad is young and will come good.

Enter the negative lot that want to put doom and gloom on anything they can. A win on Saturday and it’s been a couple of good weeks, with real progress.

Scoring more goals is crucial

Losing half our league games points to another mediocre season. If our attack only scores a goal a game we don’t deserve to be anywhere near the top half. We need to put away more more than 10 per cent of our chances.

Wood should already have scored more than double what he has achieved. Sacko et al need to get more goals. Pontus Jansson is out for how long? Disaster. We need five straight wins to catch up to the top three. Three points a must on Saturday.. Chin up.

Positives to take from September

We should have won the game at Bristol City. We easily had the beating of City and should have easily scored three or four goals.

Tuesday’s display yet again shows we have the beating of any side in this league.

Bristol City can count themselves very lucky, but now we just need to dismantle Barnsley on Saturday and that will end a brilliant September for us.
