Steve Morison was the Leeds United version of marmite. He won over a lot of fans with his performances in the second half of last season, myself included, but he still had his haters. People could see how much he did for the team in his performances, however others would concentrate on his poor goal scoring record. In 41 appearances for Leeds he only scored 5 goals. He’s now signed for his third spell in South London.
Whenever any player leaves a club, especially Leeds United, fans take to Twitter to air their views.

Some fans were happy to see him go…
I am awake but have I been dreaming? Has Morison finally gone and have #lufc signed a winger? can't be true!!! Can it?

Gutting Morison has left! Wasn't exactly world class but didn't deserve half the stick he got #lufc

Been away for a few weeks. #lufc been busy. Sad to see Morison go. Always gave 100%,his post match interview at Charlton was brutally honest

…whilst some thought it the best day of the Summer?
A good day business-wise at #lufc. Dallas in, 20k a week Morison out and £500k pocketed from the Gradel transfer to Bournemouth.

Steve Morison in my opinion was a big player for Leeds last season. Even with his lack of goals he was always on the move and always tried 100%. However his lack of goals and £20,000 a week is difficult to ignore. With Chris Wood now in the team it’s hard to see where Morison would fit in, but with him being sold does it now leave Leeds short of strikers?
With Billy Sharp and Steve Morison now I think unless another striker is brought in then Leeds will definitely be short of strikers when the season starts on Saturday.
