So yeah, Leeds United went to Wales and laid an egg.

The team selection was puzzling against the Cardiff City side that was joint leaders in the table, but Christiansen hasn’t gotten a lot wrong this season. Perhaps Samu Saiz could have provided a better spark than Pablo Hernandez in the middle of the attack, but perhaps Christiansen wanted to keep a few players fresh for the Yorkshire derby against Sheffield Wednesday on the weekend. Either way, a response is needed from the players and the club to last night’s loss.

And while it sucked losing Cardiff and Neil Warnock, let’s put this in perspective. One loss in a season of 46 games is not a crisis. As long as the club keeps rebounding from losses and doesn’t let them turn into a skid, then everything will be fine.

Or I hope anyway.

On to the links of the day.
