'Just turn up; Points are yours' – Some Boro fans fume after report drops ahead of clash v Leeds

If you think it’s tough being a Leeds United fan at the moment, spare a thought for Middlesbrough supporters.

They haven’t seen their side win since New Year’s Day and they’re hovering just above the drop zone.

There’s a real possibility that they’ll be in the third tier of English football next season.

And the Boro journalists must be flirting with relegation too.

Boro outlet Teeside Live tried to get under the skin of Leeds fans ahead of the clash at the Riverside by referencing Spy Gate ahead of the game at the Riverside tonight.

They posted a tweet that read, “Spy Gate boss doesn’t know how Boro will shape up” to trail a report about Bielsa not having a clue about Jonathan Woodgate’s formation for the game tonight.

It backfired. Instead of being piled on by Leeds fans, Middlesbrough fans took an opportunity to rip into their own side.

They said that Woodgate had no idea how he was going to set up his side either, in reference to his (unsuccessful) experimentation this season.

One fan said all Leeds had to do was turn up to take the three points – and how we hope this comes true.

Here are the best reactions from frustrated Boro fans…
