Gary McSheffry Booed by Leeds Fans

Gary McSheffrey responds to the booing he received from Leeds fans in last weekends Leeds vs Coventry league fixture;

"I didn't really say anything to offend anyone. I was asked the question 'why didn't you stay?' and I said I didn't really know because I hadn't been told. It was misinterpreted and I've never said anything bad about Leeds. Little things can become a silly headline.

"I was expecting (the reception) but this is a decent club with good fans, and when it's going good they're great fans. I've always said that, so I don't really know why they were booing me."

"Conns could have come off a bit earlier,"

"He tweaked his hamstring and we'll assess him over the next few days and see how he is."

"We've got a couple of lads up here (Michael Stewart & an unnamed French midfielder) on trial who will play on Monday,"

"As ever we'll have a look at them over the next few days and see how things go."

"We started well, we were nice and bright and on another day we could have had three or four by half-time

"You wonder if it's going to be one of those days. But we said at half-time they had to be patient and stick at it which we did. Then we saw it out well which was good because you're only one ball into the box away from that."

"They were outstanding," (Robert Snodgrass & Max Gradell)

"Eventually Coventry had to double up on them. They have quality and know how but they have a great work ethic and they have good relationships with the full backs.

"They can be unplayable sometimes because defenders don't know if they are going inside or outside. They were great but full praise for the whole team."

"Davide scores goals, Luciano could have had a couple so could Max, but you have to give credit to Dave for the goals he scored."

"The players have worked hard for that (clean sheet) and I don't just mean on Saturday,. They've worked hard on the training pitch. All of them.

"They fully deserved the clean sheet. Hopefully now we can carry that forward and keep scoring the goals as well."

"You're at home and you want to win, There's no easy games. To pick up a draw is pleasing, but we wanted to win. It keeps us in touch." 

Davide Somma Post Match Comments Leeds vs Coventry 07/02/2011

 Davide Somma  following Leeds 1-0 league victory over Coventry City

"This season has been like a dream come true.

"I set myself a target of double figures (in terms of goals) this season. Now, I have got 11 then maybe there are enough games left to get to 20.

"I am also hoping to play against Kenya this week in Rustenburg. It is a great feeling."

"The manager just told me to relax (when I was out of the team) and the chance would come. I have been trying hard in training, and I probably can't do any more than score four in four (league games)."

"Back-to-back promotions would be a great achievement, and you never know what can happen in football."

"That's what we're fighting for. Why not try to go for it and get back-to-back promotions? You never know what can happen.

"We've been drawing a lot recently and it's a relief to win a game and come away with the points. We needed that."

"We want to maintain our push for the play-offs and we knew that teams around us were getting results on a regular basis,"

"A dozen teams probably feel they've got a chance of going into the Premier League automatically and if you don't do that, you want a play-off place.

"But there are still too many games left to be talking about what we might achieve."
