Leeds United are at risk of dropping into the bottom half of the English Championship table this weekend after a heavy defeat at the hands of Middlesbrough on Friday night.
Paul Heckingbottom’s side failed to build on their vital win against Brentford last week, again falling far below expectations, making defensive errors and generally looking devoid of confidence.
A Patrick Bamford hat-trick gave Boro the 3-0 win, with supporters left fuming at the performances from the likes of goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald.
He was at fault for the second of the evening and looked shaky throughout, spilling balls and making less than convincing punches to clear his box.
Supporters have had a enough of the German, with the performance against Middlesbrough not in isolation. The shot-stopper has come under fire over the past couple of months for similarly inept displays.
Some fans are even saying they’d rather not see the £1.8m-rated player in Leeds colours ever again.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
If Leeds think so highly of BPF then now is the time for him to start ahead of Wiedwald. If he doesn’t get a chance now then is he really good enough? Either way Wiedwald can’t start again….surely #lufc

Wiedwald looks like a striker who’s been put in net after the keeper has been sent off and you’ve no subs left #lufc

Wiedwald is one of the worst goalkeepers to ever play for Leeds… #LUFC

Can’t really see a way back for Wiedwald at #lufc. I’d start planning now for next season otherwise that’ll be a write off aswell.

Slept on it woke up on it and come to the same conclusion. Wiedwald if we’re being honest worst keeper we’ve had in 25-30 years? Cannot think of anyone worse.O’Kane still don’t know what anyone sees in him. Put a foot in maybe but the games just pass him by week after week #LUFC

Felix Wiedwald is the worst keeper #lufc have ever had.
And that includes the time Peter Lorimer had to go in goal at Chelsea when Dave Harvey got crocked. #BringBackGarySprake

Can't we just sack Wiedwald for gross misconduct? #lufc
