JON LAWRENCE – LEEDS UNITED

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

WELL, what a dispir­it­ing af­ter­noon that was.

Just when it looked like we were build­ing up a bit of mo­men­tum, a per­for­mance that shows just how far off the pro­mo­tion pace we really are.

Hull were bet­ter than us in lit­er­ally ev­ery po­si­tion and I don’t think any Leeds fan who saw the game could ar­gue with the re­sult.

If any­thing, it could have been even worse.

The own­ers have said they don’t want to spend big in Jan­uary but they’ll need to do some­thing.

We need more en­ergy in mid­field, more pace through­out the side and a striker who can do the busi­ness when Bec­chio is out, so clearly some money needs to be spent by the club.

And while the gaffer de­serves credit for try­ing to change the sys­tem, he still needs a bet­ter plan B.

Other teams have long since worked out that we will go long and we look in­creas­ingly easy to play against.
