Leeds United fans raze on Twitter towards Liam Cooper first-half performance

Leeds United fans took to Twitter to blast Liam Cooper for his first-half performance against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday night.

Wolves dead ball specialist Barry Douglas put the Championship toppers ahead at Molineux with a stunning free-kick that beat Andy Lonergan all ends up.

The former Wolves goalkeeper got to go beyond the limit of the ball after 26 minutes but was beaten by the sheer ferocity of Ivan Cavaleiro’s left-foot shot for the second goal.

It left Leeds with a mountain to climb in the second period as they aimed to secure a league win at the home of the Black Country outfit for the third consecutive campaign.

Leeds fans laid the blame not only at Lonergan for the two goals, but also at the defence for exposing him so easily.

Many fans of the club took to Twitter to criticse skipper Cooper, who gave away the free-kick that led to the opening goal from Douglas.

Football Weeks has rounded up some of the best tweets:

Leeds United will return to action on Saturday when they travel Oakwell to take on Barnsely and Liam Cooper will be hoping to put in a good performance so as to please the fans.
