Following last Saturday’s score draw between Leeds United and Nottingham Forest at Elland Road, a number of fans took to social media to again slam the performance of Stuart Dallas.

The 27-year-old Northern Ireland international certainly splits opinion amongst fans and few seem to cut him any slack when effectively playing out of his natural position. He was hammered for his showing against Blackburn Rovers the other week and although he improved after being swapped over to the right against Forest again, some just can’t see what encourages manager Marcelo Bielsa to keep picking him for the left back spot.

Especially when you consider Ezgjan Alioski came in for plenty of praise for his own showing on the left.

With a number of fans pointing out he seemed to be this season’s scapegoat for anything and everything following games, I think the comments are fair enough as left back just doesn’t seem to suit him and it does affect his performances more than slotting in on the right appear to. Plenty also defended him it’s fair to say given the effort he puts in.
