'Shocker' - Many Leeds fans tear apart player who is 'Still human' after Fulham defeat
It was a day to forget for Leeds United on Saturday, as their 11-match unbeaten run came to an end with a 2-1 defeat against Fulham.
Pablo Hernandez’ early injury and Aleksandar Mitrovic’s controversial penalty made it a nightmare opening 10 minutes for the Whites at Craven Cottage.
The Spaniard going off meant that Stuart Dallas was pushed further forward into midfield, adding yet another positional change for the Northern Irish star.
Dallas wasn’t his usual self in London and was caught out by a fast Fulham midfield and attack on many different occasions – leaving Leeds’ defence open.
Many fans took to Twitter to tear apart the usually-reliable defender, with the majority claiming he was nowhere near good enough in the 2-1 defeat at Craven Cottage.
Here are a selection of some of the tweets…
Dallas has had a shocker today. To be honest only Bamford and Kiko can hold their head high #lufc

Thought Bamford was quality again today, fell like Eddie can't be arsed now, he doesn't seem to have the same hunger as before.
That's the worst Dallas has been all season, but I can't imagine him staying in that form, so onto the next one #lufc

Poor today. The ref was terrible, Leeds fans sung you’re not fit to referee and Fulham fans joined in. But if he have been any good he’d have sent off both Ayling and Costa, both were poor today, as was Dallas, alioski and Harrison. That said, we should have still avoided defeat!

Some others decided to single out his role in Fulham’s winner, with Dallas losing Josh Onomah in the box to allow him to smash home after yet another set-piece.
That was probably the most disappointing part outside of the result. Conceding from a set-piece can be understandable, but it was a lack of attention rather than a moment of class – something which must not happen again.
Stuart Dallas also the man who let josh onamah jsut roam freely around the box

Stuart Dallas reminding us that he is still human and still Stuart Dallas #lufc

We expect Dallas to bounce back quickly, with the Northern Irish international still one of Leeds’ standout performers in the entire campaign so far.
His versatility has been key to Marcelo Bielsa, who may need to utilise that in the coming weeks with a number of games coming with Leeds having numerous injury problems.
