Leeds United will be coming to the terms that another season in the Sky Bet Championship awaits next year after a dramatic night at Elland Road last night.
The Whites have been excellent this season but when it mattered most they came up against a Derby County side that was simply inspired.
Of course, the home side had actually been well in control with them 2-0 up on aggregate but a mix-up between Kiko Casilla and Liam Cooper just before half-time let the Rams back into it.
And, after the break, the away side quickly continued on from where they left off, with many Leeds players putting in performances that we’d not expected at the first-whistle.
A number have come in for some criticism and comment, then, and one of those is captain Cooper who, despite an excellent season, will not be happy with how it went last night.
Here, we take a look at what has been said with the majority of these tweets of a negative vibe…
Solid all season but with the odd catastrophic error thrown in. If he’s a starting CB then promotion is more challenging. Should stick around as a squad player but #lufc need a higher quality replacement to step in with Cooper backing them up.

Can someone at @LUFC please get a professional in to sort out the gypsy curse that Revie supposedly sorted in the 60's. Clearly possessed Kiko and Cooper last night. Give @derek_acorah a call. Doubt he's busy #cursedclub #LUFC

Cooper has to clear that #lufc

Liam Cooper cannot play for #lufc next season he is no where near good enough. Only players I’d keep from the starting 11 tonight is Shackleton, Dallas & Phillips. The rest can leave for me.

Sorry, but slagging off Cooper is pathetic. The guy is in the team of the season. He’s been top class. One game doesn’t change that. We’re raw, they are too. No time to be calling out players. Jesus. #LUFC

I don’t care what anyone says – Leeds are going nowhere whiles Liam Cooper is captain of our club
I know some are gonna be like ‘he’s been great this season’
But these same people are the reason Berardi is still here picking up a wage – because he’s a ‘character’ ???? #LUFC
