The tweet from @Mr_Tasker asks other Leeds fans if when Viduka played for them, he was called lazy by some Whites fans.
This drew a great response from these Leeds fans who confirmed @Mr_Tasker’s suspicions.
Viduka used to get stick from a section of our fans for being lazy. I'm not inventing that, am I? That did happen?

Got a lot of stick, was a bit streaky though. Could go weeks without scoring then suddenly be the best striker in the league

It did. And tbf he was quite happy to admit that he didn’t always give 100% when he was at Celtic. He said he often didn’t need to, so he just did what he felt was necessary.

He got plenty of stick,he wasn’t lazy imo he just had a laid back style,class act.

He was a bit on the lazy side but then out of nowhere he would produce a piece of pure magic he got no criticism from me

One of the best strikers we ever had, and his scoring record speaks for itself. But he didn’t sprint 30 yards to slide tackle a defender in the 89th minute so yeah… lazy ?

That happened A LOT. Used to drive me nuts. One of the best strikers I’ve seen for Leeds.

Some of our Muppets would criticise Messi

What do we think?
Do you think Viduka was lazy?
We feel though, that his goal record speaks for itself and therefore, for some Leeds fans to have called him lazy, to us, seems wrong.
