Leeds fans furious on Twitter after first-half cup display
By Dominic Toner
Leeds fans expressed their anger on Twitter after a poor first-half performance against League One side Fleetwood.
The visiting side trailed 1-0 at half-time to the lower league opposition, from an Aaron Holloway goal which was forced home from a corner.
Garry Monk made five changes to the side that suffered a disappointing 3-0 defeat to QPR on the first day of the season, but Leeds are still struggling to produce on the pitch.
Leeds fans posted their frustration on Twitter during the first-half performance, which sees them in danger of heading out of the EFL Cup in the first-round.
Here are a selection of the messages:

Leeds changed their starting 11 for the cup game and made five changes to the side with Lewis Coyle, Liam Cooper, Kalvin Phillips, Hadi Sacko and Pablo Hernandez making the team.
The club’s new signing Hernandez enjoyed a bright first-half for the club, despite missing a one-on-one with the goalkeeper.
