The mood around Elland Road has been souring for some time now, with Leeds United’s play-off push failing badly in early 2018.
Paul Heckingbottom has failed to resurrect that faltering bid, with Leeds sitting a lowly 13th in the Sky Bet Championship table ahead of the run-in.
Leeds’ supporters are understandably frustrated, after their club wasted a perfectly good start to the season, which saw them top the Championship for a short period.
The club have this afternoon moved to announce that as a reward for their support this season, season ticket holders can bring one friend along to the Good Friday clash with Bolton Wanderers at Elland Road.
???? | As a thank you for your fantastic support this year, #LUFC season ticket holders can ‘bring a friend’ to this month's game against Bolton Wanderers for FREE*

As expected, the reaction hasn’t been the best, with Leeds managing to record just one victory since Boxing Day and their season heading towards a mid-table finish.
Leeds’ fans have delivered a sarcastic response to @LUFC’s update on Twitter.
Here is some of that reaction…
I couldn’t do that to any of my mates #lufc

No thanks, I like to be nice to my friends.

Just in case you’ve got a friend you want to get rid of

Good idea but I think as a thankyou to the fans would to have a competitive squad for next season. Something we can truly shout about

Who do I hate that much?

Nah you're alright, nice PR attempt though as usual. If we got 3 points for every PR stunt we'd be top of the league.

probably not the best way to treat your friends at the minute is it…

I wouldn’t bring my worst enemy !
