One of the signs of leadership is to hold yourself responsible and not to blame others.

Pontus Jansson, as Adam Pope put it, did not mince his words about his own play over the past few weeks as Leeds have lost three matches in a row. It’s good to see a professional footballer acknowledge that he was at fault and that he needs to do better. Too often players blame the ref, the other team, the sun, the alignment of planets, whatever. Hopefully Jansson’s attitude will wear off on the rest of the team and they can play better in a critical match coming up against Bristol City.
