Thomas Christiansen watched on last night as Leeds United were swept aside by Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux, with the home side recording an impressive 4-1 victory to lay down a huge marker in the race for automatic promotion.
Leeds were powerless to stop the Sky Bet Championship’s leaders, and found themselves up against it from the early stages, following Barry Douglas’ stunning free-kick.
Andy Lonergan was powerless to stop Douglas’ stunning free-kick, but the Leeds goalkeeper did not impress for the rest of the evening, making a handful of errors and conceding three further goals, one of which came from the penalty spot, after he felled Leo Bonatini.
The 34-year-old replaced Felix Wiedwald in early October after the German goalkeeper’s performances came in for criticism, but Lonergan has so far conceded 13 goals since his reintroduction to the first-team.
Following the goalkeeper’s latest performance against Wolves, here is how Leeds’ supporters reacted…
Andy Lonergan, Wolves’ reserve keeper last season, now our number 1. That say’s it all really!! #lufc

What an absolute clown Lonergan is proving to be yet again. Said from day we resigned him it was a mistake. Never a number 1 for any team in championship. Awful decision letting Rob Green go and bringing him in. I'd honestly prefer Felix to start #lufc #lonergan #lonergone

Lonergan and Berardi absolutely hopeless. Need to spend big money on a goalkeeper and a left back #lufc

Think goalkeeping is a big problem, obviously the club don’t have faith in weidwald and Lonergan is just pretty average #Lufc

Lonergan two appalling games now, Wiedwald was dropped now it’s time for Lonergan to be dropped, hopeless #lufc

I know I've been saying this for weeks, but can we end the Lonergan experiment now? He has been no better than Felix overall, and our gameplan changes. Overall, it's a negative.

Might be a controversial opinion but feel like we should bring Felix back in on Saturday or next week, we obviously brought him in to play a certain style and when we played we picked up most points… #lufc
