'0-3 Leeds win incoming', 'Oh my god' – Many Leeds fans react to Phil Hay Twitter message

If Leeds United needed any motivation for the game at Griffin Park tonight, they’ve surely found it in an unusually bullish statement from Brentford manager Thomas Frank.

In his pre-match press conference, as quoted by Athletic journalist Phil Hay, Frank said that his side have “more momentum” than Leeds and that Bielsa’s men couldn’t have picked a worse place to play on Tuesday.

Hay said he was “surprised” to see such a bold statement ahead of a Championship game and there are plenty of Leeds fans who think it could play into our hands at Griffin Park.

One fan was shocked Frank had said this, tweeting, “Oh my god please let us do them in”, while plenty of other supporters implored Bielsa to print it out and put it on the dressing room wall.

Even BBC pundit Ian Wright got in on the act saying, “Easy to get the lads motivated now.”

It is an odd thing to do before such a big game and we’re desperately hoping that his words come back to bite him.

It’s not that what he’s saying isn’t based in fact, it’s just not the sort of thing a manager normally comes out with before a big game.

Leeds might not have a great record in London but that has to end soon – it’s not like there’s anything in the City that makes the games harder.

A Leeds win followed by an interview from a sheepish Frank after the game would be our idea of heaven.

In the meantime, here are the best reactions from newly-motivated Leeds fans…
