'Always something that goes wrong' – Leeds fans 'gutted' after latest club announcement

Samu Saiz has issued an apology after his six-match ban for spitting in the FA Cup game v Newport on Sunday, but fans are still not happy.
Saiz has been one of the best players for Leeds this season and now faces an extended stay on the sidelines after being found guilty of the offence after the shock defeat v Newport.
The full statement which was released by Saiz and Leeds, saw the player take full responsibility for his actions, which he admitted was “inexcusable”.
“I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologise to the players, staff and supporters of Leeds United for my behaviour in yesterday’s game at Newport County AFC.
“My actions are inexcusable, I give my word to all those connected to Leeds United Football Club that I will learn from this situation and never repeat it.”
The 26-year-old, who arrived from Huesca in the summer has made 25 appearances for Leeds, scoring nine goals and adding five assists.
However, Leeds will now have to do without him for six crucial Championship games which will see him out until the end of February.
And fans know that will be a massive loss to their club at a time when they need all their players fit.
Here is a selection of their tweets to the news of his six-match ban and apology:
