Leeds fans are split on Heckingbottom’s future

Leeds fans have been discussing the future of Paul Heckingbottom, and it seems like a pretty even split amongst fans.

When Paul Heckingbottom replaced Thomas Christiansen in February, fans were hopeful the ex-Barnsley man could get their playoff push back on track.

Heckingbottom’s arrival has had fair from the desired effect though, and the side have won just twice since he took over. In fact, the 40 year-old is on track for the worst win percentage in Leeds managerial history.

Still, some fans are sympathetic for the manager, pointing to the poor recruitment in January and the poor individual performances from players as the primary reasons for this season’s capitulation.

Defensive errors seem to be far too prevalent for Leeds at the moment, but many of them are individual mistakes rather than system errors, like losing a man at a corner.

The fine margins of Championship football were on display yet again in the 2-0 loss to Fulham on Tuesday, with some fans pointing to Caleb Ekuban’s crucial miss as yet another example of the players letting the manager down.

Fans have been discussing who to blame for the club’s torrid run of form on Twitter, and some of the best reactions can be found below…
