They’re saying all the right things, although it’s not their decision to make.
Perhaps lost amongst the chaos of the crazy game that took place at St Andrew’s yesterday, was the performance of a certain Eddie Nketiah. Having been thrown into the team to replace Patrick Bamford who was suffering from a dead leg, Nketiah was presented with a golden opportunity to stake his claim for a regular place in the first team.
However he didn’t really take his chance as well as he could have done, with WhoScored.com only giving him a rating of 6.4 before he was taken off in the 81st minute as he failed to register a single shot.
However, his display clearly didn’t put off a large number of the Leeds United fanbase, as they responded to his post on Twitter by more or less demanding that he stays at Elland Road for the rest of the season. With plenty of talk in the media suggesting that he could be on his way back to Arsenal, will the support of the fans be enough to keep him at Elland Road until the summer?
Stay Eddie ..listen to Uncle Ian Wright Wright Wright Wright !! 👍👍👍👍

I hope you stick around Eddie. Looked like you might've been waving goodbye today when you were subbed.

Imagine missing that promotion party, Eddie. You will score stacks as the league opens up come Feb to May. Invaluable experience and the fans want you here.

Will Nketiah stay with us through the January window?
Or will his displays end up being the deciding factor?
