'Shocking' – These Leeds fans slam summer signing after display v Preston
Two points dropped but no ground lost in the league for Leeds.
That’s the upshot of the 1-1 draw with Preston North End on Tuesday but the game is just the latest where Leeds dominated but didn’t get the points.
This time they had 63% of possession, 22 shots to 10 and eight corners to four. That Leeds didn’t lose was purely down to substitute Eddie Nketiah, who simply must start now on Saturday. [Stats: SofaScore]
He came on with about 15 minutes to go and despite being one of the smallest players on the pitch, found a perfect leap to score with a header with almost his first touch of the ball.
Patrick Bamford wasted another raft of chances, one in particular that left Leeds fans with their heads in their hands.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, and if Marcelo Bielsa doesn’t switch it up now he’s going to start losing the fans. And that’s almost unthinkable.
It wasn’t just Bamford’s fault tonight. Summer signing Helder Costa had another bad game and the winger came in for some sustained criticism from fans.
He had a couple of moments but he just isn’t having an impact on games and doesn’t look anywhere near a £15m man – as these Leeds fans pointed out, with several saying he should be dropped for the game on Saturday.
Helder Costa…. Have we got the fake version off the back of a lorry? #lufc

Harrison assist. He’s been much better than Costa tonight which I guess really isn’t that difficult. #LUFC
