Pontus Jansson – 9 – What a revelation this man has been. I can confidently say nobody expected him to do the things he’s done for us this season when he arrived. I remember him being on the bench when he first got here and just thinking, it’s about time we signed a good centre-back and we had. He understands what it is to be Leeds, not only is he an outstanding talent on the field, but he was a major part in making the fan-player bond better than it’s been for years and years. Things like this

really endeared him to us all and if he’s still here in August like he should be, I’ll be happy no matter what else goes on.

  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!
