Leeds fans have often been disappointed by their side’s lack of passion, and one remarkable stat shows just how bad things have gotten.
There are plenty of problems at Elland Road at the moment. There aren’t enough goals or creativity in the team, the midfield seems to just get passed by, and the defence has been like a sieve in recent weeks.
What will infuriate fans more than a lack of quality though is a lack of effort. Fans at Elland Road have been growing increasingly frustrated with the current squad, who seem to get worse and worse when the going gets tough.
In fact, since coming from behind to beat Huddersfield in 2014, Leeds have won just one of 43 matches in which they’ve fallen behind at Elland Road.
Since coming from behind to beat Huddersfield in Feb 2014, #lufc record at Elland Road when conceding first:
Won 1 (v Reading in April 2016)

The stat makes extremely grim reading, and it is truly remarkable that a club with the support Leeds has cannot dig deep enough to fight back into games at home.
Fans are understandably disgusted at this stat, and have been discussing the side’s lack of fight on Twitter.

When the going gets tough, Leeds hide.

@Mthomo10 how's that for a stat pal! Soft underbelly running through the club – no fight or commitment when the 'chips are down' 🙈

And that's with pretty much the biggest crowds in the division for much of that time. That is one heck of a mentally weak team
