“Completely unacceptable”, “Should never wear a Leeds shirt again” – Leeds fans fume at FA Cup loss

The Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern were extremely annoyed and upset as they crashed out of the FA Cup in the Third Round. Leeds travelled to Newport County but they lost 2-1 after a late goal.

Gaetano Berardi opened the scoring for Leeds with a rare goal. But a Conor Shaughnessy own goal drew the scores level before Shawn McCoulsky won the tie with an 89th minute header for the home side.

Leeds’ misery was compounded in injury time as Samu Saiz was sent off.

Thomas Christiansen made nine changes before the game and it proved costly as the fringe players did little to convince their manager that they should be rewarded with more minutes in the first team.

Leeds fans were livid at the end of the game and took to social media to criticise Christiansen’s decision to rotate and the performance of the players.

Here are a selection of the best post-match tweets.
