Loads of Leeds fans have been having their say on the draw at Swansea, and quite a few are unhappy with Bailey Peacock-Farrell.
Leeds dropped their first points of the season on Tuesday evening in a hard-fought 2-2 draw at Swansea.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side were without both Liam Cooper and Pontus Jansson, as the former joined the mounting injury list with a hamstring problem during the warm-up.
The defence looked vulnerable with wing backs Luke Ayling and Gaetano Berardi both deployed in the middle, and Peacock-Farrell came off worse for it.

The young stopper was excellent last season after replacing Felix Wiedwald, but hasn’t made the best start to this season, criticised by plenty of fans for failing to stop a Tom Lawrence free kick in the win at Derby.
He could do nothing about Oliver McBurnie’s headed strike in the second half, but the striker’s first goal was definitely saveable, stabbing an effort that squirmed home under Peacock-Farrell.
The 21-year-old is not exactly playing badly, pulling off one particularly impressive save late on, but some fans feel it may just be time to give Jamal Blackman a go.
The 24-year-old was brought in to compete for that number one spot, and Peacock-Farrell’s knack of making a bad mistake and an incredible save in the same game will certainly be giving Bielsa a headache.

Great saves apart from that howler for their first goal…

Can’t write Peacock-Farrell of but would probably bring in Blackman for a few games after this one. BPF’s made some solid saves but sometimes seems he needs stronger wrists, was a similar goal conceded in pre season. #lufc

I’ll say it again. Peacock Farrell isn’t good enough. Fact. Experience in GK needed

Bailey Peacocks Farrell has looked a bit out of his depth tonight I’m afraid to say. #Lufc

Great performance last night, digging in and getting a point against promotion rivals away from home is a sign of champions. Don’t worry about the 1st goal, whole defence was to blame. Not bad to say we didn’t have a natural CB in the team!
