Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to Marcelo Bielsa’s big injury update, and plenty suspect the signing of Izzy Brown could prove to be a complete waste of time.
Bielsa delivered two huge updates on Friday, as the boss confirmed Luke Ayling is in contention to face Aston Villa on Sunday.
The versatile defender injured his knee against Nottingham Forest, but has recovered quicker than expected to rescue the boss from a defensive crisis.
Who are the best away fans in the Championship? Playmaker FC’s Thogden gives his top 10 in the video below…
That news has come partnered with a very worrying update though, as Brown is expected to miss around three to four weeks with a hamstring problem.
The young midfielder has been injured since January, when he underwent knee surgery, and has now damaged his hamstring in an Under-23 match.
This is a huge setback as he was nearing a first team birth, although Bielsa claims this type of muscle injury is not unusual after a long-term problem.
Fans are fed up of signing players that are injury-prone or in this case already injured though, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below, look away now Izzy…
So then he’ll be another few weeks getting match fit after that… we absolutely must sign somebody now. Starting to think this won’t work.

Almost feels like a waste of time signing him we have no luck hopefully he’ll come good when we need him.

Not looking good for him and us . Won’t be up to speed for at least 2 months , and that’s injury free permitting . Real shame , the lad’s got talent and looked a good acquisition for us . #LUFC

Waste of time…

So probably not first team fitness until the end of January at best? Hope we add a winger or midfielder regardless in the transfer window.
