Fede Bessone played ninety minutes for Charlton in their 1-0 home defeat to Huddersfield. He seemed to struggle in the first half but grew into the game as it went on, putting in an average performance. The jury seems to be still out on Bessone amongst Charlton fans. Some fans rate him about as highly as Leeds fans do and are praying for a new left back in the summer while some think he’s been a consistent addition to their team. It would be fair to say that the majority are not sold either way and are not sure he brings anything outstanding to the side.

Ramon Nunez bagged his first goal in English football for Scunthorpe United. It was an all-important second goal away against relegation rivals Crystal Palace. The ball was half cleared by the Palace defence and fell to Nunez inside the box to the left of goal. His first touch was assured and he hit an excellent curling, looping effort through a crowd of players and into the net. He seems to have added some flair and creativity to Scunthorpe and, though his tendency to shoot from distance has frustrated some fans, he seems to have really impressed and is becoming a bit of a favourite with many hoping the Iron can capture him permanently in the summer.

While Nunez impresses at Scunthorpe, things seem to have gone stale for Aidy White at Oldham. He was a 73rd minute substitute at the weekend and isn’t having the same opportunities or the same impact as he did when he first joined the Latics. There are suggestions that inconsistency my by White’s problem – if so, it’s a disappointing sign for his Leeds future.

Young defender Tom Lees has been pretty consistent in the heart of defence for League Two Bury. He popped up at the other end in midweek though grabbing a vital winning goal against Burton Albion and played well again at the weekend to keep consecutive clean sheets. Lees’ form will be invaluable to Bury as they continue to push for promotion.

Despite scoring a late winner last week, Adam Clayton was an unused sub for MK Dons this time round while Will Hatfield again didn’t feature for York City.

    Perhaps young Tom Lees should be brought back NOW and put straight into the centre of our defence to replace whoever you want to chose.

    Leeds midfield is screaming out for Nunez at the mo’, even if he’s only got 1oz worth of invention its 1 more than the shower that played on Saturday. Rumours of a changing room bust-up involving Snoddy & the gaffer AND Snoddy being involved in a nightclub scuffle late Saturday night

    Where did you hear the rumour of the nightclub scuffle, trueyorxman? I can well imagine a changing room bust-up, and arguably a long-time coming too, but I’d have thought there’d be more tweets, Facebook comments and LUFC forum activity if Snoddy had been in a fight in the middle of Leeds on a Saturday night.

    A scuffle or ‘words being said’, wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest.

    Has anyone seen Snodgrass’ interview with LUTV after the game? It was strange. He was confident, not nervous, not happy about the defence and sounded more like a manager than Grayson. It did seem like he had got something off his chest.

    He was very critical of the linesman that didn’t give the penalty. And he said that “the manager kept saying press (as in push up) – [wry smile] that all the manager WAS saying, PRESS”

    Hmmm, it is all a bit bizarre. Howson is normally the one shoved in front of the cameras after a defeat. But not after that game?

    SG has got to the point where he’s blaming the players. Okay, maybe that’s fair. But, if the manager isn’t telling them what to do to improve themselves and not make the same mistake again, then that’s his fault.

    I think Howson is the only remaining player who played under Wise, but there’s a spine of players that came together under Gary Mac, and maybe the dressing room is getting a bit heated?

    No bad thing in my book if that’s the case. We really need something special from the key players on friday.

    And perhaps one positive thing you can say about Bates is that he knows what’s going on. He has his finger on the pulse and he’ll know if something is kicking off in the dressing room. He doesn’t suffer fool’s gladly and I’m sure that SG will have had a call from Bates.

    It’s been a while since Grayson was lauded publicly by Bates. And that used to be all the trend.
