Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to Paudie O’Connor’s all-action display on Wednesday, as he scored and got sent off for Blackpool in a Carabao Cup clash at Arsenal.
Leeds fans were slightly bemused when O’Connor was sent out on loan, as the Whites are a little short of options at the back.
The young centre-back looked solid in his few first team appearances at Elland Road, but there are certainly still some creases that need to be ironed out.

He showed both sides of his game on Wednesday, as his loan team were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal in the Carabao Cup.
The 21-year-old got his side back in the game with a nicely taken header after the Gunners had gone 2-0 up, but he was sent off just moments later.
A simply ridiculous scissor challenge on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang earned the Leeds ace a straight red card, a dismissal that some fans seem pretty proud of.
