Leeds are back at the top of the Championship after a hard-fought victory over Wigan Athletic, which has left plenty to discuss.
The Peacocks fell behind with just six minutes on the clock but equalised moments later through Pablo Hernandez, before Kemar Roofe scored the winning goal in the second period to hand Marcelo Bielsa’s side all three points.
Roofe’s tally for the season now stands at an impressive seven goals and two assists in 10 appearances, which has led to a suggestion that Premier League clubs are eyeing a potential swoop for the 25-year-old.
With his fine form and reported interest in his services, former Leeds defender Ian Harte urged the club to hand the forward a new deal – and his claim earned plenty of negative reactions from supporters on social media.
The general consensus is that handing a new deal to Roofe would be premature and he should be playing for the shirt rather than for a new deal.
We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
Roofe is now scoring the goals that the club expects and expected in 2016.
Reality: 16 games into the season, and considering he has already missed a lot of games, it is not a basis for demanding a new deal, just get on with it. #lufc

What a very strange tweet, how about just knuckling down and working hard?

Bloody hell ian calm down we don’t want to be skint again

Very random tweet, beneath an ex-LUFC pro. Also, while Roofe is having a great season so far, he’s scored 7 goals with a 3rd of the season gone, putting him 7th in the Champ top scorer league. So my advice would be to keep his head down and focus on getting to 1st.

Ian Harte has lost the plot. Roofe is on absolutely – new deals can wait until we get promoted (if). It was only last year he was tweeting about the lack of English players in the U23 team. Coming from an Irishman.

A very odd thing to tweet. Surely it’s more important for him to keep his head down and continue this hot streak rather than focus his attentions on clinching a new deal. Surely he has an obligation to honour the terms of his current deal.
