Leeds United fans have been in hysterics after a quirky bit of news emerged following the 1-0 win over Bristol City last weekend.
Prior to Saturday’s victory, a fan from Ireland had attended 13 games, spending £5k in the process, to watch the side play under Marcelo Bielsa and never managed to see the team win. However, that all changed against the Robins as the man named Stephen Fitzpatrick finally saw the Yorkshire outfit win a game under the Argentine (via Phil Hay).
One fan claimed that the supporter has spent more on the club than Victor Orta, who has overseen transfers totalling £35.85m since joining in May 2017 (via Transfermarkt).
He’s spent more on Leeds than Orta has.

In the article by Phil Hay, it’s revealed that Fitzpatrick even started ditching his scarf and his taxi driver in an attempt to see the club win. He may now be hoping the outfit can continue their good run of form which has seen them remain unbeaten against the likes of Brentford and Bristol City. Supporters were in a humorous mood after reading about the fan’s misfortune as they took to Twitter to react. Let’s take a look at some of the reactions:
@PhilHay_ nobody has jinxed us more than you in recent years. Some of the tweets have doomed us. Let’s hope that curse ends this season too 😉

Wasn’t going to be a man up high with Lee Johnson involved…
