Leeds United fans seem to have had enough of faltering number one, Kiko Casilla after they hit out at the Spaniard following his performance on Saturday. In fact, one fan was very upfront about Casilla as he offered a one-word response.

In the surprise defeat at home to Sheffield Wednesday, Casilla made a questionable error as he allowed Jacob Murphy’s strike to sneak in at his near post (via BBC). However, it isn’t the first mistake the ‘keeper has made for the Whites with his error in the play-off semi-final defeat to Derby County a standout moment from his career with the Championship side (via Joe).
Marcelo Bielsa does have the ability to call on Illan Meslier, who produced a brilliant performance in his debut against Arsenal last week Monday. He was praised by former Elland Road player Noel Whelan, who claimed that the Frenchman’s ball distribution was ‘a real credit to himself’ (via Football Insider).
It seems fans have had enough of the former Real Madrid player as they took to Twitter to ask for Meslier’s introduction into the side. Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful, as fans clearly agreed with the above tweet labelling him as ‘shocking’, as others brandished the 33 year-old as a ‘liability’ and a ‘joke’…
All Meslier aren’t we

I’ve never had faith in him. Bang average. Not commanding enough.
