'Hasn't done enough' - Leeds fans let down by summer signing for display v Millwall
By Danny Wright
Leeds United fans have made it clear that they were let down by striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga after they saw their side slump to a first defeat of the season against Millwall on Saturday afternoon.
The Whites conceded their first Championship goal since the opening day win over Bolton when Aiden O’Brien netted in the 73rd minute.
Thomas Christiansen’s side looked off the pace all afternoon and after going behind they had little to offer in response as their good form came to a grinding halt at the New Den.
Lasogga, 25, was signed by Leeds late in the summer transfer and had an instant impact last week when he scored a brace on his debut in the 5-0 hammering of Burton.
However fans clearly don’t think the German powerhouse did enough to help their side out against Millwall on Saturday and took to Twitter to criticise him for his display.

We've got big bulky strikers in Lasogga & Grot. Need to get it into them quick & give them a chance. #lufc

Not great that. Pablo not great in these situations. Lasogga hasn't done enough for me. Changes for next game

As great as Alioski, Saiz and Lasogga are I think it needs a few players who know what a "MILLWALL" is. #LUFC wanna see Dallas get on.

Lasogga doesn't seem to be getting a hold of the ball but he's living off scraps so O'Kane and Phillips need to try and get control #lufc

Leeds stay top of the Championship standings despite suffering defeat in London but only on goal difference as Wolves and Cardiff secured results to move level on points with Christiansen’s side.
Up next for Leeds is a trip to Premier League side Burnley in the Carabao Cup when Chris Wood will be playing against his former club for the first time after leaving Elland Road in August.
In other Leeds United news, the Whites have jetted out on a transfer mission to cast the rule over a Europa League attacker.
