Leeds United suffered one of the weekend’s big FA Cup upsets on Sunday, falling to a 2-1 defeat against League Two outfit Newport County at Rodney Parade.
It was a fully deserved win for the home side, with Leeds failing to build upon their 9th minute opener scored by Gaetano Berardi.
A Conor Shaugnessy own goal gave the lower league side an equaliser before substitute Shawn McCoulsky sent the home fans into dreamland with a bullet header just a minute from time.
Leeds fans were left fuming at the performance and the result, reserving plenty of criticism for striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga, who looked off the pace all afternoon.
The German forward started his Leeds career well on loan from Hamburg, but missed a number of matches through illness in November and December and hasn’t scored in his last six games.
Supporters are now calling for his loan to be cancelled, believing he doesn’t have what it takes to be a success at Elland Road.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his Sunday performance…

Lasogga – the clue should have been that Hamburg were willing to pay 75% of his wages just to get him gone. He's an out of shape, lazy chump. Who cares if he can kick a ball into the net from 10 yards? He's absolutely gash. Send him back to Germany #LUFC

Well that was worth watching after 4 hours kip. Lasogga looked like he played half asleep. Borthwick-Jackson pathetic as well. #lufc

We were warned about Lasogga before he came here…Those who expressed their concers were told to shut up. Its crazy how much better Roofe is especially off the ball. #lufc

What's most annoying about Lasogga is we know he's better than we've seen recently. It's a total lack of interest and effort. Inexcusable for me, send him back. #lufc

Lasogga needs sent back early and a proper striker purchased. Today he only thought of himself and wanting to score, not about the team. Shooting from everywhere. #lufc

Can't believe Lasogga was the replacement For Chris Wood FFS #lufc
