Still to come...

Leeds got their first away win, and first clean sheet of the season yesterday at Vicarage Road, but without the help of in-form striker Davide Somma who had to watch on from the bench.

After scoring three times in just 110 minutes of football, a lot of Leeds fans were expecting to see Somma in the starting XI. Failing that, the very least we expected was a second half substitute appearance, but the gaffer brought on new boy Ross McCormack instead.

It’s not that I don’t think McCormack is a good signing, but having only signed for the club a couple of days previous, I have to question how much time he’s had to train with the team and whether he should have even made the bench?

I actually thought Johnson would be dropped as he’s wasteful with possession and offers very little in my opinion. This would mean Watt was pushed out-wide where he can cause nightmares for full-backs, leaving Somma and Becchio upfront?

To be fair to Larry, I understand he wanted to stick with the XI that beat Millwall and in fairness, it worked, but I just feel it can be improved upon. Hopefully he’ll be more willing to shuffle things round a bit at home, because despite some positive signs, there’s definitely room for improvement.

The big question at the minute is who will be the favoured strike-force this season? Somma is firing on all cylinders, the ever-present Luciano Becchio is in good form, Billy Paynter has yet to return from injury and Ross McCormack hasn’t come to make the numbers up!

I’ve opened a new multiple choice poll below to see who the fans think is the best strike-partnership for the 2010-11 campaign. Vote away, and as always comments are welcome.

Which midfielders would you release/sell?
