Leeds fans react to Brighton tweet

Ben White won August’s PFA Fans’ Player of the month on Wednesday but Leeds fans were alarmed to see that Brighton’s official Twitter account had picked up on it.

They’d prefer the Brighton loanee’s successes flew under the radar and were quick to react to the tweet – with hilarious results.

The bulk of replies from Leeds fans were at pains to point out that White is actually a terrible player and that Brighton should either release him for free or let them take him off their hands for a nominal fee.

One said, “Just send him to Leeds on a free and get him off the wage bill”.

We doubt this is going to work. White has been brilliant for Leeds, almost unexpectedly so.

When Leeds signed him his only experience was in Leagues One and Two, but he’s playing like a Championship veteran at the moment.

The LUFCDATA Twitter account has been singing his praises all season – the stats below are from the 3-0 win against Stoke when he boasted a 90% pass accuracy. That’s been his average for the season.

That’s the good news. The bad news is that Leeds don’t have an option to make his move permanent in the summer. Likewise, we hope that Brighton don’t have a recall option for January.

In the meantime, here are the brilliant responses to the Brighton tweet:
