Leeds fans react on Twitter to second consecutive league defeat
By Harvey Byrne
Leeds supporters were calling for owner Massimo Cellino not to do anything stupid on Twitter following the club’s 2-1 defeat at home to Birmingham on Saturday.
The Whites suffered a second consecutive league loss after also losing their opening day clash against QPR, while also having to go to penalties to see off League One opponents Fleetwood in the EFL Cup.
Winger Hadi Sacko levelled the scoreline after Jacques Maghoma opened the scoring, but defender Michael Morrison won the match for Birmingham with a 55th minute goal.
Cellino has a history of going through managers quickly with Garry Monk being the seventh manager in his three-year tenure at the club.
Here are a selection of their messages:

I already feel like Cellino's hand is hovering over his big red sacking button, that's how ridiculous our club is at the moment. #lufc

This isn't good enough Leeds. Monk needs to get a win soon otherwise I honestly can't see him lasting another month. #LUFC

Monk took over Leeds after being relieved from his duties at Swansea last season.
The 37-year-old has looked to make his own mark on the Leeds team and has so far brought in nine players, which include Kemar Roofe, Luke Ayling and Pablo Hernandez.
Leeds haven’t experienced football in England’s top-flight since being relegated in 2004 and fans of the Whites are growing restless with the club also being drawn into League One during their time away from the Premier League.
The club finished in mid-table last season in 13th placed after Uwe Rosler was sacked and Steve Evans took over and fans are desperate to see some stability in regards to management at the club.
In other Leeds team news, former Whites striker Noel Whelan has questioned the role of Toumani Diagouraga.
