Leeds United suffered their third successive defeat on the road in the Championship when they were beaten 3-0 by Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Sunday, and Whites fans have questioned the decision to sell Liam Bridcutt as a consequence.
Having lost their previous two away fixtures against Millwall and Cardiff City, Thomas Christiansen would have been hoping for his team to give a positive performance against the Owls, but they failed to do so.
Eunan O’Kane and Kalvin Phillips both struggled in the middle of the park with the former having a huge role in Wednesday’s third goal, and it has left the Yorkshire outfit’s faithful wondering what might have been had they not sold Bridcutt to Nottingham Forest during the summer transfer window.
Leeds supporters were quick to have their say on the 28-year-old via social media, and while some said the club “should have kept him”, others feel it was a “mistake” to sell him.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

I'm sure they are. We're a good footballing side, we just need to toughen up. TC wanted to keep Bridcutt and I can see why.

Same as our last two away games..if he knows what's wrong why not fix it? Selling bridcutt was a mistake when you see performances like this

Should have kept Bridcutt, games like today and Cardiff show where his value to the team were.
