  2. Barracked by Leeds fans, and then.........

    Just got back...

    Negatives today... 1 - We are still making schoolboy errors at the back. The defending for the first goal was lacklustre to say the least. These slow starts are going to cost us dearly this season. 2 - Stevie Hammell - IMHO he had an absolute stinker defensively today, and his decision making...
