Leeds United’s terrible time in the capital continued (via Twitter) as they dropped more points on Saturday afternoon when they faced Fulham at Craven Cottage. The Whites suffered a 2-1 defeat to one of their Championship promotion rivals (BBC) and fans appeared to pick up on one of the decisions Marcelo Bielsa decided to make during the game.
Bielsa replaces Ayling with Jordan Stevens. #lufc

Phil Hay was on hand to provide his Twitter following with live updates from the game taking place in west London and noted how the Argentine manager decided to take off Luke Ayling and bring on Jordan Stevens.
That particular incident, however, appeared to leave some fans scratching their heads as to why Bielsa made that decision, especially as they were trailing the game.
Some of the Elland Road faithful had felt he was taking a huge risk, whilst others just could not simply get their head around it.
Here are just some of their reactions to Hay’s tweet…
That’s a bit of a gamble….
