Your fault: These 2 Leeds United players are to blame for the club’s awful season

Leeds United fans here in the Tavern are hoping that their side will push for promotion next season, as the summer transfer window will be of huge importance. 

Paul Heckingbottom’s side enjoyed a strong finish to 2017/18 Championship campaign, as they managed to secure all three points against Queens Park Rangers at Elland Road.

However, it hasn’t been all smiles as the Whites seem to have taken a step backwards under Heckingbottom. Indeed, positive results have been hard to come by since the Englishman took charge at Elland Road, as many of our local residents are calling for a managerial change.

But, it looks as if a number of the club’s first-team members should also be fearing for their future after a rather sloppy campaign, as there may be a number of outgoings over the course of the summer transfer window.

With that in mind, these TWO Leeds United players are to blame for the club’s awful season…

Jay-Roy Grot

Sadly, Jay Roy-Grot has failed to make the most of his limited opportunities in the first-team squad so far this season, as he was only able to produce one goal in what was a poor first campaign in England.

The Whites have been calling out for a saviour at times in the current campaign, with a number of the club’s star attackers struggling for form or spending time out through injury and suspension. Although, the Dutchman hasn’t been able to assert his dominance when given the opportunity, as many of our local residents want to see him move out on loan in the summer.

Samuel Saiz

There’s no doubt that Samuel Saiz was one of Leeds United’s standout performers during the first half of the season, but he did let his side down on a number of occasions.

Sadly, the Spaniard lost his head during Leeds’ Emirates FA Cup third round match at Rodney Parade, which then lead to him receiving a lengthy suspension. And, things didn’t get much better when he later returned from serving his suspension, as he struggled for consistency and didn’t manage to find the back of the net.
