'Inexcusable' - Leeds fans urge Radrizzani to take drastic action after loss v Derby
By Danny Wright
Leeds United fans have take to Twitter to urge Andrea Radrizzani to sack manager Thomas Christiansen following Tuesday night’s defeat to Derby at Elland Road.
The Whites are currently enjoying their best start to a season in eight years as they currently sit sixth in the Championship standings.
However Christiansen’s men have slip[ed down from first in the table in September after a run that has seen them lose five of their last six league outings.
On Tuesday, Leeds let slip of a lead to succumb to defeat to Derby after Sam Winnall scored a late brace to see the East Midlands side leapfrog United in the table.
That appears to have been the final straw for many fans, who have now grown vocal on Twitter and are demanding that owner Radrizzani takes drastic action and axes Christiansen.

Christiansen out. 8 defeats in 10 is inexcusable. #LUFC

Christiansen is not the guy for us, very weak all over the park and look second best easily every game. TC out! #lufc

#lufc Christiansen needs to get out of my club. If anybody thinks he should stay, you’re going to be the reason we don’t get playoffs

So hate to say it and I know I'll probably change my mind but #ChristiansenOut

Awful! Time to sack Christiansen. The team needs a new voice and new ideas.

If it were up to me, i'd probably sack TC tonight, but i think Radz wants to appear to be the anti Cellino, that's the problem. #LUFC

Christiansen was brought in by Radrizzani in the summer after Garry Monk exited Elland Road.
The Leeds senior duo worked hard in the summer on a complete overhaul of the squad, leaving it barely recognisable to the one that finished just outside the play-offs last term.
It seemed to have worked after the first seven or eight games as Leeds topped the Championship pile, but with a few months into the season now completed, it seems that the honeymoon period is well and truly over.
In other Leeds United news, Noel Whelan has panned this Whites duo after a poor start to the season.
