Andy Munro enjoys Blues’ win over Leeds United.
The ‘mighty’ Leeds went away with their tails between their legs and perhaps they should start to realise that when you’re playing the Blues possession is only one tenth of the game.
Leeds are undeniably talented in midfield and out wide but as toothless as most people’s granny up front. Blues caught them with a sucker punch after Bamford had failed to turn in a chance that my one year old grandson would have snapped up and when the Juke dummied the Leeds defence Che Adams did the rest with what was a superlative strike.
Yet Leeds continued to have the lion’s share of the game without really threatening while at the other end Blues’ speedy counterattacks could have yielded at least a couple more if it hadn’t been for the Leeds goalkeeper – probably the only player on his side to do himself justice.
The only downside was what looked like an horrific injury to Kleftenbeld as he over-ran the ball in his enthusiasm in what was a man of the match display, the Juke and Che Adams perhaps excepted. His loss will be a big blow but Monk’s masterstroke pushing Maxim Colin into midfield shows that good things can come out of adversity. However, if the experiment of playing Colin becomes a longer term ploy then Dave Davies must step up to the plate and Wes Harding needs to get his mojo back from his displays earlier in the season.
Either way it was a great win but with other results generally not going for us, much work remains to be done.
