Loads of Leeds fans have been running the rule over their draw against Middlesbrough, and they’re not too happy with star man Samuel Saiz.
There’s no doubt about it, on his day Saiz is Leeds’ most dangerous player, and perhaps one of the best attacking talents in the entire Championship.
The Spaniard has started the season in red hot form, proving to be a key cog in Marcelo Bielsa’s free-flowing attack.
However, the 27 year-old can be a bit wasteful at times, and fans were infuriated by his apparent inability to release the ball quickly on Friday night.

Tony Pulis’ Boro came to Elland Road to play for a 0-0 draw, and when facing a deep defence moving the ball as quickly as possible is essential.
Saiz held on to the ball far too long on several occasions, and fans are not happy with his performance.
The playmaker had three shots, none of which were on target, completed one dribble, and made no key passes.

I'll say it shall i? Saiz needs to start playing the simple pass instead of trying the worldie unsuccessfully every f#cking time! In my opinion! ?

Agree totally needs to realise you can’t do everything on your own even Messi needs to give and go – Samu guilty of not releasing the ball ⚽️ early enough

Alot of his passing is abysmal, because of his tricks every now and again we ignore it!

He looked like he was running in glue. When his heads right, he destroys teams, but even then the final ball is inconsistent at best. Last night he had a poor game.

Think he could be the one to make way when Forshaw returns

I like Saiz, don’t get me wrong. But why does he always feel the need to take an extra touch or 12 when he doesn’t have to? Seems to slow the attack up and make the wrong decisions. When he’s good, he’s very good. But when he’s off the boil, he really effects our play #lufc #mot
