When Leeds United shook off the yoke that was Massimo Cellino, there was much hope for long-suffering Whites fans. The question is, is hope still there?

It appeared so early on in the campaign as the Whites soared to the top of the Championship table. That soar upwards has suffered a definite downturn as results stalled and Leeds have begun to tumble down the league.

That tumble has, at times been just that, a tumble but since the turn of a new year Leeds United have been in freefall. A single, hard-fought 1-0 win against Brentford is all the Whites have in the W column in 2018, and fans haven’t seen much hope recently. Two successive 3-0 losses against Middlesbrough and Wolves have seen slim play-off hopes peter out to something approaching anorexic.

Tonight’s game against Wolves was always going to something of a big ask for a down-on-their-luck Leeds United side against the champions-elect. That is just what it proved to be as a rampant Wolves took Leeds United to the cleaners in a 3-0 drubbing where the men from the Black Country always had the upper hand.

Goals from Romain Saiss and Willy Boly, as well as an outrageous lob from substitute Benik Afobe were enough to send Leeds tumbling a little further to 13th in the table. However, what is likely to last longer than memories of a Wolves masterclass is the following series of tweets from Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani.

Radrizzani throws caution to the Wolves in blast of cold air

Sour grapes or critical comments well-directed? It’s really hard to say. Granted there are likely very probable reasons why Radrizzani has tweeted as he has, I mean only earlier this week there were reports that several Championship clubs weren’t happy with Wolves tie-in with super agent Jorge Mendes and players provided to Wolves by him via what Italian Radrizzani says is a “fund who has shares in the biggest players agency with evident benefits.

Whatever the Italian’s reason/s for posting, it is certainly something that has caught the imagination and response of many on Twitter.
