'No return policy', 'Stinker' – Leeds fans destroy Chris Wood after debut for Burnley v Blackburn
By Harry Sykes
What a difference a week makes in football.
This time last week Leeds fans were hoping that last season’s leading scorer Chris Wood stayed with them.
Then he was omitted from the squad to face Sunderland on Saturday, before completing a swift £15million move to Burnley in the Premier League.
Now he’s made his debut for his new side and Leeds fans were delighted after he missed chance after chance to leave the Burnley fans wondering what they’d paid for.
Wood scored 30 goals in all competitions for Leeds last season and that earned him the move up to the Premier League.

However, he was up against League One opposition on Wednesday night in the shape of Blackburn in the Carabao Cup.
His side won easily enough, 2-0 away from home, but Wood will have to wait for his first goal – and things will only get tougher from here on in.
Burnley play at Wembley next, when they take on Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday.
And Leeds fans will be hoping he has another stinker at the famous stadium. Here is a selection of their reactions on Twitter to his performance on his debut:

Chris Wood just had one of them seasons where everything went in. Like Mido 2006. He'll be on loan back in the champ in 12 months.

Honestly happy we sold chris wood. If he had played another 1-2 games without a goal, his value could have easily dropped a couple mil.#lufc
