Chris Wood – 10 – The man himself, he deserves his 10. He was taking a bit of abuse at the start of the season, hence his ear-cupping celebration after his goal against Fulham. I didn’t rate him before this season to be honest, but he proved myself and countless others wrong. He becomes one of six players to score thirty goals in a season for Leeds United and that is some achievement. His improvement this season to last is unbelievable and must be in some ways down to James Beattie, a bit of an upgrade on Steve Evans to say the least. Watch our video here of all 30 of his goals –

  1. I agree with them all apart from Phillips.phillips is dire we should have sold him and kept mowattt his “great passing range” is good but rarely hits it’s intended target all he ever seems to do is give the ball away then get booked trying to win it back

  2. No I totally agree with the Phillips evaluation, I think he is a confidence player , much like Chris Wood. When he is on his game, he can strike a ball with thunder, ping long-range passes around the pitch, & makes tackles high up the pitch. He’s not often as entertaining to watch as many people would like, which I think is why the things he really contributes well go un-noticed, & at the end of the day, let’s not forget, he’s been started a fair few times & is still in that group of young players underneath what was the Mowatt, Cook, Taylor trio, he has a lot of learning to do, but Monk obviously see’s something in that, & Im not one to doubt his views after what he’s done for us this season.

  3. Brilliant execution of ratings though, the only one I’d slightly knock was Bridcutt, just because as much as he does sit back too much & leave the midfield open, he’s broken play up against many teams this season & stolen their momentum not allowing them to build decent attacks, always fully committed & doesn’t go half heartedly into a challenge. I’d have given him a 7

  4. Great ratings. Agreed with the majority of them exactly.
    Really enjoyed your honest opinions on the CM positions. O’Kane not given enough starts, and although Bridcutt does a lot of good mopping up, he sits far too deep and it’s as if we’re down a man on the rest of the pitch. Huge fan of Monk, only issue is his team selection sometimes. Great article!
