'Drop him' – One Leeds player found things hilarious at full-time and fans are fuming
Leeds faint play-off hopes were delivered a shattering blow last night as they were beaten 3-0 at the Riverside by a Middlesbrough team looking for a top-six spot themselves.
And Leeds fans were shocked to see one of their players, Adam Forshaw, laughing and joking with the opposition after the game.
A hat-trick from Patrick Bamford came without answer from Paul Heckingbottom’s men on a freezing Friday night.
The match only got the go-ahead at lunchtime and travelling fans must have been wishing it had been postponed on the way back.
When the teams were announced the Leeds fans were puzzled about the decision to leave Forshaw out of the side.
The midfielder has been one of Leeds’ strongest players since his January move from Middlesbrough – and his knowledge of the Riverside would have given him an advantage over his teammates.

However, at full time, the Leeds fans were fuming with their new man.
He’d come on at half-time and been unable to alter the course of the game.
But fans spotted him laughing with his former teammates when the final whistle went and that rubbed them up the wrong way.
Here are the best reactions to his ill-advised post-match antics:
Watching Forshaw laughing with the boro players at full time, didn’t exactly cheer me up.#lufc

I know he’s ex boro, but Forshaw is a Leeds player and the fans have travelled in stupid conditions to watch that shite and he’s laughing on pitch with Boro players after FT, have some respect!!

What case is this? Have I mentioned performance? No, have I mentioned ability? No I don’t believe I have, I mentioned something after watching my team not show up for 90 minutes and paid good money to do so, to see Forshaw laughing on the pitch rubs me up the wrong way!

Forshaw laughing and joking at the end and Saiz reacting to the tackle sums up the pathetic mentality and total lack of discipline from this team all season long, a proper leader needed in the summer otherwise next season will be even worse #LUFC #mot #alaw pic.twitter.com/cUJJ7Vn7SY

@WYSdaily Shocking performance from Leeds. And I hate the fact Adam Forshaw was laughing and joking with his old team mates on the pitch after the game. He should be gutted and miserable as sin after that loss and performance!

The sooner @Samusaiz leaves the better! Greedy and petulant! Moments of brilliance but offers little else. Good to see Adam Forshaw laughing and joking with his EX team mates! You ALL make me sick!!!!!!!!
