What a coincidence! Would you believe it? Seven games in a row with WP, NO WINS. One game with Diallo in his place, FIRST WIN! MOM Salisu for his superb game today. Tino VG. Broja brilliant. Diallo VG much more pace than our 100kpw Captain. Loads of attacks, unlucky not to win 3-0. Will be the same against Burnley and Watford and then back to normal (no wins) after that, so enjoy the attacking attractive play whilst WP is banned.

Didn't miss the corners either Redmond was miles better than WP.

Although a great team effort remember that Leeds were lacking a few of there better players, still a great result.

A team selection forced on the manager, a team many have been demanding. And the result and play to match. What's the likelihood he'll go back to normal when certain personnel return? How much do these people get paid?

Jesus Christ! We finally get a win and yet people still moan!

Boy we needed that.

Salisu and Tino were immense. Perraud looked really effective. Diallo has bulked up and his speed of thought is now better. Romeu was back to his best. The unloved Redmond was really really good today, worked his socks off and provided a killer assist for the goal. Eli and Djenepo put a shift in, Djenepo almost running horizontal to the ground at one point, Broja provided that missing link a striker who can convert a good chance. McCarthy and Bednarak could have had the day off really.

Armstrong looked good on his return. Even Theo looked up for a tussle.

The side worked well against a lacklustre Leeds side and their goalie looked quite bothered by the pressing.

Crowd sounded great, Ralph looked smart.

Good result and could really have been better.

A very good performance. Dominated throughout and though it felt close and tense we bossed the game (Salusu's error gave Leeds their only clear chance).Redmond did well and good performances throughout the team. The closure of the A303 meant a 4.5 hour trip to get there just in time but it was well worth it. Leeds had injuries but we had Adams, Stephens and Ward Prowse out so all in all a good performance and result.

Very happy with the 3 points. A bit surprised to see Redmond play up front, but he played his best game for us for a long time, and he provided the brilliant assist for match winner Broja. Diallo looked like the next N'Golo Kante, and everyone put in a shift. Very, very nice to see Stuart Armstrong back in the team. When he is firing on all cylinders, he will be as important as he has always been.
What a player Salisu is. He made one bad pass and lost one duel - everything else was brilliant. Especially he block he made when Harrison fired - goal bound - just inside our box.
MOTM with a large margine.
Leeds were very poor. We allowed them close to nothing. We should - of course - have won with a larger margine, but 1-0 wins tastes well! Nice with our 3rd clean sheet.
Bring on Burnley.

Great result Redmond was superb nice to see a win its been a while, 3 points, now lets move on!

Block8 added 10:57 - Oct 17

Come on you lot how can Redmond only be on 7.9, what does he have to do to satisfy some of you?
The ratings are for this game only!!!!

KriSaint added 13:49 - Oct 17

Redmond did play well. I applaud him. Credit where credit is due.
Still, I wonder why Adam Armstrong was left out in a 4-2-2-2 line up with Ché injured?

KriSaint added 19:38 - Oct 17

If it gives us wins I can live with a new striker pair called Redmond - Broja, but it will decrease the confidence og Ché Adams and Adam Armstrong. But ok, if A & A plays vs Chelsea in the League Cup and we go through to the next round, everything is pretty ok for the time being.

fubsy added 20:49 - Oct 17

Good performance all round I think. I like Tino and he is performing very well. However, not sure he's better than KWP. I like the look of Perraud and he is a natural left back and he stretches the opposition as he attacks on the outside. The team looks better balanced when he plays. I think Broja has shown us something different - he should play with Adams or A Armstrong because that gives opposition defences more to think about.

I agree with Salisu as MOTM, and I was also impressed with Diallo, Moussa and Elyounoussi. Moussa's pass to Redmond for the goal was delicious. Redmond played very well too.

I would like to point out that Leeds played as well as we let them.

Everything is easier when we win!

Even though this is worst Leeds side I've seen for a while, it was clear from the start that we were not going to let them play. It helped that Leeds sat back and allowed Broja a gentle introduction into a centre forward holding the ball and bringing others into play, but I thought he was excellent. Intelligent running into the wider channels and a handful for their defence. Redmond had his best game for a long while and even in the last few minutes was tracking across the front line to close Leeds down.

Perraud looked good and importantly we looked more balanced with a left footed left back. No longer could their defence leave the player out there knowing that a poor cross would result.

The midfield had a good day partly because Leeds were not closing them down. Nonetheless their first thought was a pass forward and not sideways and that kept Leeds going towards their own goal. Diallo was much more effective than I've seen him before.

Salisu is an enigma. Looks composed and solid 99% of the time but that 1% is a rabbit in the headlights. On Saturday his error was not costly but against better teams he has to improve his concentration. It may be that he switches off when the ball is at the other goal and then when Leeds played the long ball out, his starting position is a few yards off.

Good to see the team play with some confidence and actually enjoy the game.

MOTM for me was Redmond. Worked hard, played the right pass most of the time, harried their defence.
