'Got to be dropped', 'Horrendous' – These Leeds fans blaming 'joke' of a player for loss v Wigan

Lightning isn’t supposed to strike twice but it did for Leeds United today at Elland Road.

And, after Wigan started the rot that cost Leeds promotion last season, they won again today completely against the run of play.

Leeds dominated the game. We always dominate games at Elland Road.

But Patrick Bamford misses too many chances and he was at it again today.

That means that huge pressure is put on our defence and while we were immaculate at the back at the start of the season, we’ve been creaking recently, conceding 18 in the last 10 games.

Kiko Casilla had a strong start to the season. He was being talked about as the best keeper in the Championship but he’s been absolutely awful in the past couple of months, making a string of mistakes that have really cost us.

He was to blame for the Wigan goal today, a deflected corner that came off Pablo Hernandez and looped over him and into the net. It was a goal literally from nothing and one any goalkeeper should have stopped.

Casilla might have his mind on an FA Hearing for racist abuse that will likely be heard in February, but he’s costing Leeds a lot of goals at the moment and fans were furious with him today.

Plenty of them want him dropped before any ban kicks in and you have to wonder how much longer Bielsa will keep the faith with him.

Here are the reactions from angry Leeds fans…
