Leeds’ terrific start to the season came to an abrupt end on Saturday evening, and fans are calling for a major change after another poor showing from Bailey Peacock-Farrell.
Leeds were quite simply swept aside by West Brom on Saturday, as goals from Hal Robson-Kanu, Matt Phillips, Harvey Barnes and Dwight Gayle stunned the visitors.
Pablo Hernandez did grab a late consolation goal, but this was undoubtedly the worst performance of the Marcelo Bielsa era.
While there were plenty of poor individual displays, fans are crucifying one man in particular, as Peacock-Farrell had a really bad day at the office.

The young Northern Irish international has made a few poor mistakes already this season, and he really could have done better with the second goal.
He then gave the ball away in the build-up to Barnes’ strike, and at 3-0 the game was over.
The Whites signed Jamal Blackman on loan from Chelsea in the summer, and fans are now calling for the 24 year-old to get his shot.
Peacock-Farrell’s emergence was one of the few silver linings of last season, but the Twitter reactions down below don’t make pretty reading…
BPF not good enough, how many mistakes this season? #LUFC

BPF needs to be dropped every keeper has bad form but when we have one of the best championship keepers from last season on the bench seems a no brainer along with Dallas,forshaw and alioski @LUFC

Probs needed that to happen. Give em a rarsing in this international break and weed out the crap in the team that have been coasting.. Alioski & BPF need some time out of the starting line up fo sho #LUFC

BPF atrocious, Dallas suspect but he isn’t a RB, kept the ball and the ball kept dropping kindly for WBA. Wouldn’t be too worried but frustrating all the same #LUFC

I’m all for giving youth a chance but at what point do you play Blackman just to give BPF something to motivate himself with…? #LUFC

i know klich was at fault losing the ball, but BPF has been at fault for far to many goals this season, needs to be dropped #lufc

Hope I never see Dallas, Alioski or BPF in a Leeds shirt again

I have usually been a BPF advocate but Blackman has to start next game #lufc
