‘Like a rabbit in headlights’ – Some Leeds fans feel very, very sorry for player

first_img Davis found life hard against Jonathan Kodjia and Yannick Bolasie Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card Leif Davis made his professional football debut on Sunday afternoon as Leeds visited Aston Villa.Davis, the teenage full-back, was named on the bench for the clash at Villa Park, but was drafted into the starting line-up just before kick-off as Barry Douglas was struck by illness in the warm-up. Davis out of his depth at the moment. Needs a good spell to increase his confidence. #LUFC— Parma (@Parma__D) December 23, 2018 Lied Davis scares me ……and not in a good way #lufc— Mary Christmas 🤶🏼🎄 (@Mazzaleeds) December 23, 2018 #lufc piss poor. An awful 20 mins. Kodjia has too much time and space every time he gets the ball. The young lad Davis hasn’t got the strength to compete with him and Harrison has offered diddly squat support on the left flank.— Toby Bilton (@TobyBilton1) December 23, 2018 2 Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade Jonathan Kodjia is ending Leif Davis’ career before it’s even started #AVFC— Arthur Christmas (@WanDilliams) December 23, 2018 Aston Villa’s defence looks nothing special, just unfortunate losing Douglas in warm up. A game we could do with Bamford coming on too but hey ho. Harrison is just god awful and that poor Davis looking lost but what do you expect🤣Long way back for us but it doable. #leedsunited— Danny (@Danny96328777) December 23, 2018 BEST OF Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ We look shocking. Young Davis like a rabbit in headlights.

RANKED Roofe struck at the death to claim all three points for Leeds ADVICE REVEALED Latest Football News It was surely a big moment for the 18-year-old, who had never before made a professional football appearance, either for Leeds, or for Morecambe – the club from which he was signed earlier this year.Davis would have hoped his debut went better, however.Leeds were 2-0 down inside the first 20 minutes, and Davis showed he was clearly not ready for this level of football. MONEY Davis must be annoyed he wasn’t on the pitch to celebrate the amazing winning goal, and he will certainly be grateful his blushes were spared after his shaky showing.The youngster’s performance was rightfully criticised on social media, but the majority of supporters were understanding of his struggles given Davis was making his debut against one of the best teams in the Championship.You can see some of the best reaction to Davis’ performance below… huge blow REVEALED Can’t see us getting anything today Davis the poor kid is out of his depth Harrison is the most frustrating player to watch, I just don’t rate ! #lufc #mot— James LUFC (@jameslufcmot) December 23, 2018 Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move 2 Premier League Team of the Season so far, including Liverpool and Leicester stars Any reason why he put Leif Davis in instead of Allioski in LB and Clarke on the right?
