Leeds United fans on Twitter have been sharing their criticism for Whites defender Junior Firpo and his latest display for the club during the first half of their Premier League clash against Newcastle United.

Coming off the back of a disappointing 3-0 defeat against at Elland Road last weekend, Marcelo Bielsa’s side travelled to St. James’ Park to face Newcastle to try and pick up their first win of the season.

First up in this 2020/21 LUFC quiz, which of these players did NOT score against in the 4-3 defeat at Anfield?

During the first half of the game against Steve Bruce’s side, many Leeds fans were not impressed with what they saw from Firpo, in particular, with some of those fans taking to Twitter to share just exactly what they were thinking. 

So, what did these Leeds fans have to say about Firpo’s first-half display against Newcastle?

“Firpo is causing us major issues. He’s losing it all over the place.”

@melve2010

“Firpo is really struggling isn’t he, hope he comes good!”

@Junderwood_19

“Firpo too lightweight for me from what I’ve seen so far…”

@jonnied80

Given the ball away far too much. Firpo has been all over the place but rarely in position to actually defend #lufc #MOT

@Chris1014Lee

Firpo is horrendous.#lufc

@Danny_Swede

“Firpo does not fit this team at all.”

@JackBishop42

Looking at this group of tweets from these Leeds supporters, it’s clear to see that they were not happy with what they saw from Firpo during the first half against Newcastle. 

Looking ahead to the second half, these Leeds fans will undoubtedly be hoping that Firpo can put in a better shift than he did in the first, or else he could find himself on the receiving end of even more criticism from the fans and even out of the team moving forward.
