Leeds United fans comment as same old same old condemns them to defeat

I once said that the only invention I would ever think of putting out there was a four-fold plastic brick wall (traditional red brick/white mortar) which could be unfolded and used to bang your head against it when an opportunity arose.

I never got round to it, life and sleep deprivation from three children got in the way of me becoming the next budding Thomas Edison. However, I reckon that I could have made a killing selling it to Leeds United fans. Ah well, an opportunity missed eh!

You see, again, Leeds United fans are looking around for something safe to do just that – bang their heads against. Why? Well, yet again an inability to defend a set-piece has led to a scrappy goal that has condemned the Whites to defeat. Just like Swansea’s late winner, Leeds dominated the ball against Charlton but ended up losing 1-0.

Scrappy the goal may have been, but it was enough. A ball in from a corner was struck goalward by defender Tom Lockyer, pushed out by Leeds keeper Kiko Casilla only to rebound from the back of Macauley Bonne’s head and into the Leeds United goal. That was it, a 1-0 defeat.

Despite hammering away in the second-half, despite having more of the ball, it was a half where catch-up football didn’t pay off and Leeds return home with nothing to show for 96 minutes of effort. For their fans, it’s over to Twitter for spleens to be vented and being vented they are. Here’s what some of them are saying after another disappointing day at the office.

Leeds United fans vent after set-piece disaster…again

Yes, I definitely should have invented a four-fold plastic brick wall as I’d have done bits selling it to Leeds United fans today. I might pop it in the invention pipeline alongside a separate compartment in a butter container for scruffs who scrape their burnt toast scraps back in and an automated voice for the microwave that screams “Oi, wassock. You’ve left 2 seconds on the timer” when some lazy oik takes something out before it’s pinged.
