Despite Leeds United being top of the Championship, Jack Harrison hasn’t started his second season at Elland Road as fans may have hoped when their club paid another £3m (per Transfermarkt) for him to come back on loan this term. Indeed, he’s without an assist in Leeds’ first eight games and has netted just once thus far.
Now, patience is seemingly wearing thin with the 22-year-old as some fans are wondering why Marcelo Bielsa keeps including him in his starting 11. In fact, he’s started in five of the last six games, though clearly hasn’t had the desired impact given the reaction below.
Phil Hay, Leeds United writer for The Athletic, recently tweeted a story charting the player’s journey from Man City and New York City FC to Elland Road, but these Whites fans were much more concerned about his lack of quality in the final third so far this season.

Seems like a great kid but he can't play

He couldn’t deliver a letter, never mind a cross. How he starts over Costa is baffling. Same with Bamford over Eddie.

All the experience and still can’t complete a successful cross
— Jamie (@jamie_longman1) 25 September 2019
The general standard of his crossing is awful.

If he could put 1 or 2 balls in like derby away in playoffs a game I’d forgive him the other 18 that hit the nearest defender

He’s like a worse/slower version of Adama Traore. Has pace but nothing else, absolutely nothing
