When Burnley striker Chris Wood was speaking on Goals on Sunday, he had some honest comments regarding the Leeds United fan base.
Woods comments were relayed by twitter account LUFCMOT, he said: “When they are behind you & they love you they are one of the best fans in the country. But if they don’t take to you or have a bit of a hold against you they will let you know about it & they let you know it very loudly & very vocally.”
This doesn’t sound too dissimilar to many fan bases in England, as most fans will definitely let you know about your mistakes during a match.
However, these fans took the comment very well, most of them actually agreeing with the former Leeds striker.

When you’re a good player and work hard, we love you and are the best fans in the country. Yes if you dont give 100% every match then we will let you know. I think that’s fair

Well said Chris some of are fans can turn very quickly! Wood got quite abit of stick from part time fans that turned up odd game same last season and this season with Bamford and both strikers proved them wrong and turned it round WALAW

Perfectly put . I’m sure cooper Phillips Bamford etc etc will vouch for that. Fickle as

Some fans reckon Wood would be able to break into Marcelo Bielsa’s side today, which would be an interesting dynamic to see Bamford and Wood playing side by side.
I often think what Wood would be like in our current side. When he was banging in all those goals for us he was surrounded with predominantly average players.

What Do We Think?
Fans will always be vocal about players because at the end of the day it’s the fans that pay to watch them play every week. Patrick Bamford recently went on a 10-game goal drought, however, not too many of the fans turned on him despite the importance of goals from your striker, which says a lot about how much the fans respect Bamford.
