On the road with the Keighley Whites.
Today it's an 'away day' with a superb bunch of supporters.
Sheffield Wednesday v Leeds
Team: Green, Ayling, Bartley, Cooper(c),Taylor, Mowatt, Bridcutt, Vieira, Sacko, Antonsson, Wood.
A superb performance by Leeds and a very much deserved win, stand put performances by the back five to keep a clean sheet and Liam Bridcutt in midfield adding much needed 'metal' in that department, especially noticeable when Ronaldo Vieira received a bloody harsh yellow card, even when he'd won the ball.
He spoke to him and calmed him down, speaking volumes for his experience and in my view leadership, also Hadi Sacko who ripped the left back to pieces, every time he had the ball he was direct and such fantastic pace. He gave Antonsson the easiest goal the Swedish striker will score all season with a superb bit of link up play with Ayling near the penalty area.
All credit though to all involved with the team performance.
Onwards and hopefully Upwards and a great day out!
Garry Monk: "We had a game plan and we followed it, attacked them down the flanks because going through the centre of midfield wouldn't have worked". About talk about his future beforehand was 'outside nonsense."
Small steps going forward, start of a journey, he ended by saying "My focus is my team. That's all I care about. I don't focus on outside nonsense. It means nothing to me. That'll always be the way."
Carlos Carvalhal: "I don't like excuses but the balance of this team is not 100 per cent. Our team didn't play at the level we usually play." He added that the impetus was to get the first goal, when Leeds got it they went for the second.
Andrew Butterwick (Travels of a Leeds fan) gives his thoughts on the excellent win at Hillsborough.
A very happy man too.
Many Thanks @MOTForever
Some positive words on social media for the promising youngster Ronaldo Vieira about his performance yesterday at Sheffield Wednesday, most said he gave the midfield balance. Myself I thought he had a decent game, only blemish was a very harsh booking for a challenge when he actually won the ball off the player.
