Leeds fans react to horrifying defensive statistic

After a humbling defeat at the Riverside on Friday, Leeds fans have been reacting to one amazing defensive statistic – and it’s not amazing in a good way.

Paul Heckingbottom’s side were completely outplayed by Middlesbrough on Friday, and the win over Brentford last weekend is now the only win in United’s last 11 league games.

There are plenty of problems with the side at the moment, but the fact that they have managed just three clean sheets in their last 12 league matches is quite simply a recipe for disaster.

Leeds are now 12th, eight points off the playoff places and with a goal difference of +1. This is due in no small part to one incredible defensive statistic.

The defensive troubles have to be attributed to the club’s poor summer transfer window, losing players like Rob Green and Kyle Bartley and replacing them with inferior players.

Leeds fans are making no bones about where the blame lies for these decisions, and here are some of the best twitter reactions…
