Image for Leeds United: Fans fume over Lee Bowyer quotes

Supporters of Leeds United have been fuming over quotes from Charlton Athletic manager Lee Bowyer, which were relayed on Twitter.

On Tuesday, @LeedsUnitedYEP relayed a post that contained quotes from the 43-year-old manager which were made in an interview with Sky Sports where he discussed ending the Championship season prematurely on a points-per-game basis.

In the interview, the Charlton manager, who was with the Whites from July 1996 to January 2003, stated that it would be “scandalous” if the season was decided on PPG and that it “would kill” the Addicks if they were relegated on a PPG basis, which had Leeds fans livid.

To kick things off what season is this from?

Would you be for or against the Championship being decided on a PPG basis?

For, it's a good idea

Against, terrible idea

The Addicks current sit third from bottom in the Championship table, trailing safety by two points with nine games remaining (per Sky Sports).

With fans clearly thinking the manager was acting in self-interest when the quotes were relayed to Leeds supporters (via @LeedsUnitedYEP), the Elland Road faithful continued airing their fury with Bowyer’s comments.

What do we think?

As can be seen in these responses from Leeds fans, they are furious with the comments that were made by the former Whites midfielder.

However, Bowyer did state that he would “feel sorry” for the teams at the top and that he thought “Leeds have worked hard” to be where they are (via Sky Sports), so, he may be due some slack from Whites fans.
