Masssimo’s numbers come up!
Well those that witnessed the last three games could not be blamed if they thought of joining David Hockaday away from Elland Road this Saturday.
However after the National Lottery draw picked the side, we saw a new and improved Leeds side. Lewis Cook was my man of the match for an impressive display sitting in front of the back 4 and dominating play in the first half of the match.
Leeds new look side included Antenucci 34, Sloth 33, Cook 23, Mowatt 27 and a number 14 who spectators also assumed to be a new player but it was in fact Bianchi with a No 1 haircut.
Bellusci nearly gave the Leeds the blues when he appeared to be in trouble inside the box but an excellent sliding challenge saw him take the ball, keep the ball in play and distribute it to a Leeds player. How different things could have been if he got that one wrong.
The Leeds goal came when Warnock cut in from the left and much to his surprise he passed the ball into the far corner of the net in the 17th Minute!
The second half saw Bolton dominate play without creating clear cut openings until Beckford nearly made a mess of his intended back pass to Silvestri. In true Beckford style the adulation that he received from the Elland Road faithful for that save was as loud as any goal that he scored…well maybe one was louder…Remember the date.
For the record Leeds have 10 shots on target in the League this season so far (Source BBC Website). Which gives us a 20% success rate. The Watford goal doesn’t count as it was an own goal.
So if you are wondering about who the next Leeds manager might be look out for a Lancelot or maybe Guinevere, and if you are thinking about having a go on the lottery definitely include 23, number 1 – looks to be a fans favourite but you might want to avoid 31 at the moment.
