Leeds United: Fans lambast Liam Cooper display

Many Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to slam Whites captain Liam Cooper’s display against Brighton in the Premier League.

Ahead of the game against the Seagulls at the Amex Stadium on Saturday evening, Marcelo Bielsa’s side were seeking a victory that would’ve seen them rise to 14th in the league – a result that could’ve really kickstarted their campaign.

However, they were unable to achieve this and were incredibly fortunate to draw 0-0 against Graham Potter’s side, with home striker Neal Maupay particularly culpable of missing several gilt-edged opportunities.

One player who was poor against the Seagulls was captain, Liam Cooper, with the centre-back struggling to handle the movement and intelligence of Maupay.

Should Liam Cooper be starting in the league for LUFC?





Consequently, many Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to slam the performance of the Scotland international:

What did these Leeds fans make of Cooper’s display against Brighton?

“Liam Cooper, the worst center half to ever grace the Premier League? Awful”


“How you can play both Liam Cooper and Junior Firpo over Struijk bewilders me”


“Liam Cooper is BY FAR the worst centre back I’ve ever seen, baffling seeing him start every week”


“I still don’t think that Liam Cooper is the right leader for Leeds, we need someone who will get this team playing when it’s not going our way…”


“Jack Harrison has forgotten how to play football. Liam Cooper is horrible. Dan James is horrible. That Junior Firpo bloke we found in a bin somewhere. And Tyler Roberts is…I can’t even be bothered to come up with something clever”


“I hate Liam cooper”


Bielsa’s side will be looking to secure a vital win when they host Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace side on Tuesday evening at Elland Road in their next match in the Premier League.

The Yorkshire outfit, currently 17th in the league table with just two wins after 13 games, will see the clash against the Eagles as an excellent opportunity to really kickstart their campaign as they aim to surge up the Premier League table.

This was a low point in Leeds United's history, but how many points did they get in the 2003/04 campaign?
