Leeds: Fans react to Barry Douglas injury

A lot of Leeds United fans are furious with Barry Douglas after Marcelo Bielsa revealed that the Scottish international would not be available for the Whites’ trip to QPR on Saturday.

Douglas started the last match with Sheffield Wednesday but struggled to deal with the pace of Jacob Murphy and was replaced by Ezgjan Alioski – who did even worse.

Should Leeds persist with Douglas?

Yes, he can still come good

No, get rid

No, get rid

However, this latest injury has infuriated many Whites fans who want the club to get rid of Douglas.

What do we think?

Douglas, who is valued at £3.15m by Transfermarkt, has made 11 appearances this season and has struggled with his fitness.

This has meant that Alioski and Stuart Dallas have had to fill at left-back or left-wing-back, and though this has worked in some matches, recently, Alioski’s poor defensive positioning has become an issue.

Douglas played a massive role in Wolverhampton Wanderers’ promotion to the Premier League two years ago – as he grabbed an incredible 15 assists.

However, since he has moved to Elland Road, he has struggled to hit those heights, and this latest injury just causes more disruption.
