Last night's game against Birmingham was a pretty hard one to take, we played well for the first 30 minutes, got battered 1-4, and now Simon Grayson has been sacked. In the mix of all that Fabian Delph played again, so apologises for not getting straight to him, but at the moment everything is confusing at Elland Road. And to make it even worse it was BIRMINGHAM...so you lot should hate this too.
Delph lined up in centre mid once more playing the left centre role. With a disappointing transfer window and his late arrival to the side before the Ipswich game, many put far too much pressure on Delph to succeed. Pretty much 'He left for millions he must be good, he's a Leeds lad...now win us the game on your own.'
Last night was far more relaxed...the deadline day shenanigans might have taken some of the focus away from the game. From the off Delph was bloody brilliant, like last week every tackle was time to perfection. He broke up play before Birmingham had the chance to press forward. Then on the attack his best moment came with a beautiful cross field pass to Snodgrass, from left back to attacking right wing in a flash and with 100% accuracy. He never stopped working hard and was unlucky when the ball fell to him on the edge of the box, but he sliced it way wide after being off balance.
In the second half he struggled...why you ask? Well mainly because the entire team did and we collapsed and conceded three goals in eight minutes. At times you can tell he is a cut above the rest, and once again he stayed behind and walked to each stand to show his appreciation of the support.
There isn't too much to report, but with the shocking second-half performance and the sacking of our fans favourite boss it's the best I could do. We play Bristol City on Saturday, Delph should start despite a caretaker boss being in charge.
