The Leeds season is coming to a spluttering end after burning so brightly at the start of the season.
The mood of the players and the fans couldn’t be any more different from the start of the campaign when Thomas Christiansen took his team to the top of the table.
This table-topping feat came on the back of some heroics from summer signing Samu Saiz, but his form has gone the same way as his side and fans were massively frustrated at the diminutive Spaniard today.
One fan even had a go at him before the match had started, making reference to his strop after getting subbed by manager Paul Heckingbottom in the game last week.
With Wes Hoolahan getting a guard of honour, the fan wittily said that Saiz was having a tantrum because he wasn’t getting one.
Other fans were just saying that he had completely disappeared and that he was playing like he was on the beach already.
There was nothing to celebrate for Leeds fans at half-time either, despite a cracking strike from Kalvin Phillips giving their side the lead. A deflected Wes Hoolahan effort right at the death made the score 1-1.
Here are the best reactions to Saiz’s first-half display from frustrated Leeds fans:
Saiz is just so frustrating now. Has the talent to be a top top player in this league as we have seen but his end product has just disappeared now. #LUFC

If you look closely you can see Saiz having a tantrum because he isn’t getting one https://t.co/1rL11i63Yk

@WYSdaily I'm really not sure what Saiz is bringing to this team lately. He's been poor again today, can't even play a straight forward pass. Some of our fans have blinkers on when it comes to him.

one reason: hecky is garbage as a coach and saiz has lost interest as a result
