After so much promise it was almost predictable that Leeds United’s season would ultimately end in immense disappointment.
And that is exactly what happened. Last night, the Whites threw away a 2-0 aggregate lead to lose 4-2 on the night and 4-3 over the two legs to Derby County in their play-off semi-final.
Stuart Dallas did his best to secure the spot at Wembley on his, scoring early on, but a huge mistake from goalkeeper Kiko Casilla on what was a shaky night for the Spaniard allowed Jack Marriott to claw a crucial goal back.
Goals from Mason Mount and Harry Wilson as well as a second for Marriott ended Leeds’ season with Casilla coming in for more criticism than anyone.
So, after such a calamitous game, does the experienced shot-stopper have a future with the club?
“Yes, of course.
“One game doesn’t make a man.
“Okay, he wasn’t great, but he’s been decent so far.
“The Leeds fans awlays want a scapegoat, but it ain’t going to be the former Madrid man.”
“He does have a future at the club, but he seriously needs to buck his ideas up in pre-season.
“Everyone thought that he’d be a fantastic signing when he arrived from Real Madrid in January, given his vast experience and knowhow.
“But he has simply failed to live up to expectations since arriving at Elland Road, and needs to improve next season for sure.”
“Like it or not, I think he does.
“The Spaniard has four years left on his contract at the club and I can’t see any other sides taking an interest in him any time soon following his recent performances.
“Whether or not he spends much of that time in the Leeds starting XI however could be a different matter.”
