Leeds United’s season went from bad to worse on Saturday after they suffered a last-minute 2-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road in the English Championship.
Going behind in the 71st minute, Paul Heckingbottom’s side looked like they may rescue a point with an equaliser five minutes from time, however, Atdhe Nuhiu broke Leeds hearts with an injury time winner.
It means that Leeds have still won just one match since Heckingbottom took charge and fans are questioning the direction the team is heading in, already looking forward to the season ending.
They were particularly unhappy with the performance of midfielder Eunan O’Kane, whose continued selection is perplexing supporters.
He’s under-performed in the Leeds engine room for a couple of months now and there’s pressure on the manager to drop him for the remaining league games.
Is it time to give some youth players a chance?
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Don’t understand how O’Kane is in the side I could walk into any pub and find an Irish man whose been drinking since 9 this morning and he’d probably do a better job in cm😂😂 #lufc

I just don’t understand what’s happening at Leeds. I don’t understand why we hired a manager whose record was dire. I don’t understand why Ekuban, O’Kane, other mediocre players play. Radz needs a serious adjustment across the whole club in the summer. @LUFC #LUFC #twitterwhites

The season is over for #LUFC. It's time to drop O'Kane, Dallas, Alioski, Lasogga and start giving our u23s a run. We've nothing to lose. Lasogga is fucking off after this season, Alioski has been shit for 10 matches, Dallas never does anything & O'Kane has been shit all season.

That Morsy for Wigan is twice the player of O'Kane and Phillips. As good as Forshaw and playing a whole lot better than Vieira has this season #lufc

What has O'Kane brought to the party so far? Can't work out how he gets game time every week #mot #ALAW #lufc we are looking moderately better than a poor Sheff Wed team. Too many mistakes. Lets get @Lasogga10 on
