'Obsessed with us', 'Cheated' - Some Leeds fans react to Bristol City ace comments before clash
Bristol City forward Nahki Wells has provoked a bit of a reaction from Leeds United supporters ahead of this weekend’s meeting between the two sides at Elland Road.
Ahead of the Championship fixture Wells, 29, has spoken of his “history” with Leeds – something which has left some fans on Twitter baffled about what exactly he means [Bristol Post].
Wells has scored three goals in his nine total appearances against Leeds with one of them coming earlier this season when he was on loan at QPR.
The former Burnley striker found the back of the net after appearing to handle the ball, so while he says he has “history” with the Whites, fan have suggested that his history is that he is a cheat.
Since joining Bristol City in the January transfer window, Wells has scored one goal in three appearances.
He found the net on Wednesday night as the Robins won 3-2 against Derby, so he travels to Elland Road on Saturday on a high after scoring his first goal for his new club.

Never knew there was a history between him and us. Only thing I can think of is that he played for teams that weren’t leeds and against us 🤷🏼♂️

What history? Does he think playing for a couple of pub teams from down the road counts as history?

He has ‘history’ with us?!! If he has history with us then I’ve got some with Sam Fox & Linda Lusardi….

The only history he’s got with us is some of the other teams he’s played for are obsessed with us

The history is that he cheated.
