‘Absolute garbage’: Many Leeds fans react to Phil Hay’s tweet – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Leeds United managed only a draw against relegation-threatened Luton Town on Tuesday night at Elland Road.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side came from behind to salvage a 1-1 draw. It wasn’t a convincing performance at all from the Whites who are struggling a bit with consistency following the restart.
Harry Cornick gave the visitors a shock second-half lead with a superb curling finish. Leeds equalized through Stuart Dallas in the 63rd minute. They created enough chances but failed to take the lead on the night.
Phil Hay, the Athletic journalist, who was covering the game, posted a series of tweets after the game. He has praised Pablo Hernandez and Ezgjan Alioski in his tweet.
It’s a point but you wanted three. That felt like harder work than it needed to be. A different game once Hernandez and Alioski came on and had enough late on to win it. #lufc

Still rather be in Leeds position with 6 games to play. No need to panic

It’s a poor restart frankly. 4 from 9 with 2 games at home is rubbish. Bielsa has to take some of the blame today. Tried to get too cute and it cost us straight away, and frankly Pablo needs to start. Bamford needs to sit.

Bad result that should be burying teams like that

Don’t deserve anything on that result..should have put all of this to bed..Luton 2nd bottom get a result against a Leeds team top of the table..typical Leeds..I’ll ask the question to the Leeds players..Do you really want to win, go IP and be heroes? On that showing..NO!

We are perfectly designed to get the results we get. If we have a toothless striker then we’ll always struggle to score despite so,so many chances. We would have won this 5:1 with a better forward. No idea why Bamford still gets a start. It’s so tedious.

Alioski put some incredible balls in and was let down by his team mates. Why on earth are we not better at attacking these type of teams?

Absolute garbage. 2 of the worst headers you’ll ever see in football from Costa and Bamford. Weak all round performance. Brentford won again. We’re determined to take it Dow to the wire instead of running away with it

Typical Leeds, all the possession, plenty of good chances but poor finishing. Squeaky bum time again and I refuse to talk about Bamford

It was the same old story for Leeds. Luton goalkeeper Simon Sluga made several good saves, but poor finishing has cost them badly once again.
Patrick Bamford once again failed to convert an easy chance. He lost his footing when well-placed to head home. Helder Costa too missed a good opportunity to score.
Leeds enjoyed 75% of possession and attempted 23 shots of which they managed to keep nine on target, according to BBC Sport.
