Excellent performance from the town today, so much so we made Leicester look poor. I'm feeling more and more confident for the season now.
Positives: -We already look like a team and not a squad full of individuals, everybody seems to have fit in nicely. - Flexibility of squad. The new boys played in various positions today with Parry on the right and middle when he came on, and Wildig on the left. - The defence. We looked solid at the back which led to a 'We've only had one shot' chant from the away fans. Said shot was a punt down field from Schmichael.
Negatives - May get shot down for this. Still think we need another striker. Gornell and Morgan were awesome today and took their goals expertly. I am however still of the opinion we need a clinical poacher. Not seen enough of Dobie to judge (looked ok today) and struggle to see Bradshaw cut it this season.
Hector and Hall were excellent today and I can see we have the makings of a good team and an excellent squad with good cover, my biggest concern would be firepower, despite excellent finishes today from Gornell and Morgan I fear Bradshaw and Doble are not equal quality back up so would like to see another striker option before the start of the season and I think GT knows this as he has alluded too.

Hall my man of the match followed by Hector then Gornell. Purdie has looked very steady too. I could think up 3-4 possible starting line ups for Leeds now, not a clue what Turner will do. Would still like to see a striker come in though.
I thought Jon Taylor worked very hard and was excellent in coming back and covering forcing their attacking moves to break down on more than one occasion and he got forward and played his part.
True JT is not the free spirit scoring goals he was when he broke on to the scene but I suspect that is because GT is asking him to play a certain role in making the right side strong defensively in addition to his efforts going forward
