Leeds United: Many fans furious with Forshaw’s latest injury

Image for Leeds United: Many fans furious with Forshaw’s latest injury

A whole host of Leeds fans are very angry on Twitter with Adam Forshaw’s latest setback.

Heading into their match at weekend against West Ham United, were riddled with injuries, and their back four reflected that with both Charlie Cresswell and Jamie Shackleton starting at centre-back and right-back respectively.

Should sell Forshaw?





Now, Marcelo Bielsa is going to have to cope with one more as he confirmed after Leeds’ 2-1 defeat against the Hammers that Forshaw has injured his thigh, which adds to the time spent on the sidelines by the midfielder following a horrendous injury he picked up during the 2019/20 season, which saw him endure 560 days on the treatment table (as per Transfermarkt).

A lot of fans are annoyed on Twitter with Forshaw’s latest after BBC journalist Adam Pope relayed Bielsa’s post-match comments at the weekend.

What have these fans been saying?

“He should be ashamed picking up a salary for 4 years for doing naff all also the cost of medical care that goes into looking after him, it’s a shambles”


Needs releasing. Waste of time and salary. Utterly ridiculous that he’s still on the payroll #lufc #MOT


“Sorry he’s a waste of a wage it’s obviously not his fault for being made of glass but when we don’t sign a midfielder when we scream out for one and say it’s alright we have him it’s not it’s like he walks and gets injured”


“Enough now…. already”


“Scandalous recruitment during the summer. We’ve been on a great run, but we’ve taken our eye off the ball in terms of strengthening the team, instead choosing to rely on what we have. No team succeeds by standing still. #lufc”


“We’re actually gonna go down”


“Get rid of him.”


“Love the guy, but needs must….bye bye.”


chairman Andrea Radrizzani said over the summer that Forshaw would be like a new signing this season, much in the response to the Whites wanting to sign a new midfielder, which was made very clear by interest in both Conor Gallagher and Lewis O’Brien.

Who was Bielsa's first competitive game as manager against?

With Forshaw now picking up a thigh injury, it’s yet another headache that Bielsa will not be welcoming, especially given his side still remain winless in the Premier League alongside four other teams in Norwich City, Newcastle United, Burnley and Southampton.
