    Interesting development. How are his crosses from that side of the field?

    Thom Kirwin just introduced Eric saying "Lichaj, who had such a great game against Millwall, ..."

    Lichaj with a nice run to earn a corner. Nothing comes from the corner.

    Leeds legend Peter Lorimer (doing the color commentary) says he's been very impressed with Lichaj and how he gets forward. Said Eric is a great athlete.

    Eric slips on some wet grass and tweaks his knee a bit apparently. Seems to be ok.

    Commentators say Eric has "adopted to LB so easily, or at least hes made it look easy"

    Seemingly nothing going on this half.

    Eric was just singled out for a bad pass as he tried to pick out Neil Kilkenny.

    Almost halftime.

    2nd half hasn't seen much more intrigue from a Leeds perspective. No chances and Derby have had two clear cut chances that they've missed and Kasper just bobbled a save but got the ball in the end.

    Changes are clearly needed here from Simon Grayson.

    Bradley Johnson and Davide Somma coming on.

    Jesus, Jake Livermore's casual slack touch goes straight into a Derby counter and a Ward goal.

    1-1 :mad:

    That was shit, 2-1 Derby win.

    Switched off after the wonder goal and no passion for the fight. At least some of the results have gone our way.

    Hard to say with only listening. Commentators seemed happy with him but it sounded like a crap performance all around bar the goal.

    Even though Derby are struggling, this shouldn't be surprising I suppose, Leeds record midweek has been downright awful this year. Graysons done everything he can think of to try to change up the routine but can't seem to find anything that works.

    Next two are home against Watford and Reading. Going to be an interesting end to the season. I guess I have gotten so used to disappointment these last few years, that I'm just preparing myself for the worst.

    Then again, in two weeks we can be making a last push for automatic promotion!
