'Terrible', 'Clown' – Leeds fans destroy favourite after 4-3 loss v Millwall (not Cooper)
Leeds fans have slammed the performance of Pontus Jansson after the enforcer gave an uncharacteristically poor display in the game against Millwall.
It was a disastrous first half for Leeds after Liam Cooper was given a straight red – the third consecutive red card for Thomas Christiansen’s men.
And they quickly went 2-0 down to goals from Aiden O’Brien and Lee Gregory after 42 minutes.
Pontus Jansson received a yellow card for a challenge just before half-time but his side staged a remarkable comeback after that.
Pierre-Michel Lasogga scored in the 46th minute before Kemar Roofe equalised in the 55th minute, putting Leeds in the ascendancy.
Lasogga scored his second for Leeds in the 62nd minute to put the home side ahead, but they couldn’t hold on and went down to two late goals from Millwall.
Leeds fans were not impressed by Jansson and some made reference to speculation that he might be moving to Premier League Southampton.
Here is a selection of the best reactions from leeds fans:
He's had the season of his life. But a terrible game today. And so has Jansson.

Of course it’s his fault coaching players how to act and cope with changing circumstances is all down to TC if the players aren’t good enough then swop them out – Cooper awful Viera awful today Jansson wound up and will end up getting a red lasogga poor

Absolutely disgraceful from @LUFC. 2-0 down and should be more. We've been pathetic. Stupid challenge from Cooper who was absolutely appalling anyway.. Lasogga has been absolutely awful and Jansson has lost the plot. Wake up you clowns!!

Jansson making sure that Southampton interest quickly goes away. Struggling to continue to back TC…. #lufc

As much as I like Vieira, himself and Phillips let Millwall take a hold of the game. Neither recovered and we fell apart. Jansson and Cooper poison too as the game went on. Never a red either. If you ever played football you'd know #LUFC #MOT
