'Light years ahead', 'Immense' - Leeds fans blown away by senior player for display v Derby

Leeds United fans on Twitter were blown away by the performance of Adam Forshaw in the 2-2 draw with Derby County at Pride Park on Wednesday night.
Pierre-Michel Lasogga and Ezgjan Alioski were both on target for the Whites but Andreas Weimann and Kasey Palmer were able to help the hosts ensure that the Whites’ wait for a first win under Paul Heckingbottom continued.
Forshaw, 26, has wasted no time in impressing the Leeds supporters after signing from Championship rivals Middlesbrough during the January transfer window.
The midfielder was in top form against the Rams on Wednesday in what was quite an underwhelming performance overall by Paul Heckingbottom’s men.
Forshaw was a cool, composed presence in the Whites midfield, contributing to both the attacking and defensive phases of play.
Leeds fans were very impressed with the midfielder, with one saying he’s “light years” ahead of his team-mates.
Here is a selection of their tweets:


Forshaw has made five appearances in all competitions since signing for Leeds from Middlesbrough last month.
The 26-year-old had fell well down the pecking order under Tony Pulis’ regime at the Riverside and was omitted from six matchday squads in a row in the Championship before leaving for Elland Road.
However the senior player’s form with Leeds appears to prove the Boro have dropped a clanger by letting him leave, especially to a team who they are closely rivalling in the Championship standings.
In other Leeds United news, this summer signing has confirmed that he has jetted out to the Middle East.
