Junior Firpo and Noel Whelan post profane reactions to Leeds United drama at Wolves

The dramatic Leeds United victory at Wolves lead to players past and present reacting with profanity after the final whistle.

The second injury time winner in the space of a week, this time from Luke Ayling, saw the Whites come back from 2-0 down to take all three points and celebrate wildly at Molineux.

The sentiment was shared online by those not in attendance, as both ex-Leeds striker Noel Whelan and current first team full back Junior Firpo tried to censor themselves as they swore in messages posted on Twitter after the game.

Whelan posted on his personal Twitter account at 9.57pm: “GET THE [expletive] iNNNNNNNNN MOT”.

Then nine minutes later, former Barcelona player Firpo, currently out with injury posted on his own personal account: “MY [expletive] TEAM!!!!!!” with blue, white and yellow hearts.

Marching on together

The whole of the Leeds world was truly marching on together last night, as Jamie Carragher bellowed the same words out on the match commentary.

The emotion that such a stirring comeback brought out of everyone related to the club, and likely many of those who aren’t, was special.

It was the kind of night that can completely reverse a club’s fortunes, and the seven point gap between Jesse Marsch’s side and the bottom three suddenly looks huge.

It had seemed like the cursed nature of United this season that had plagued them through the final months of the Marcelo Bielsa reign was back in full force during the first hour last night (18 March).

The manager made four substitutions, one extra for concussion, in that time and none of them were ones he had chosen.

Patrick Bamford went off with tears in his eyes in the first half as his long-awaited return to the first team appeared to have come to an end already.

He was followed by Diego Llorente and Mateusz Klich, before Illan Meslier was forced off after a collision with Raul Jimenez that saw the Mexican sent off for a second yellow card.

That point was clearly instrumental in the turnaround, and the hosts were furious with Kevin Friend’s decision.

But after losing four players to injury, and conceding in the 11th minute of first half injury time, it was an incredible achievement to come back and win.
