Leeds fans react as Forshaw is ruled out for the season

Adam Forshaw’s injury has been something of an mystery this season.

Plenty of rumours and reports have been circulating about him and his injury, we’ve heard about him making strides in training week after week, but he’d still not made his return to the matchday squad.

We’ve finally learnt that he won’t be playing again this season after Phil Hay revealed that the midfielder has jetted over to America to finally have an operation on his problematic hip.

The journalist had previously stated in a post-match Q&A session after the Millwall game that the club were anxious to have him go under the knife, but it seems as though they’ve finally bitten the bullet on that front.

Understandably, a number of United fans were gutted with this news.

Forshaw had been a stable presence in the Whites’ midfield before his injury problems got the better of him.

Indeed, he boasts an 89.7 per cent pass completion rate from the seven league games he played this term, and he also averaged 1.9 shots per game and one key pass per match.

It’s hard to say that he’ll be missed because Leeds are so used to being without him, but the fact that he won’t be back before the end of the campaign has a number of United fans disheartened.

Others were more frustrated by the news.

Of course, Forshaw being out for the remainder of the season will affect Leeds’ chances of promotion, and with United failing to bring in a replacement in January they’re now short in the midfield.

Can you name which season Leeds signed this flop?

Plenty of fans questioned why the club hadn’t signed someone to replace Forshaw in January.

In other news, Leeds fans were far from happy with one Marcelo Bielsa decision on Tuesday.
