Fulham & Leeds fans react on Twitter to Matt Smith's Bristol City move

Fulham

The 6 foot 6 inch striker has joined League One side Bristol City on loan.

Matt Smith's Fulham career is yet to take off.

The 25-year-old signed for the Cottagers from Leeds for £500,000 on Deadline Day and has played just 38 minutes since. On his debut, Smith was sent off.

Now, the target man has joined League One side Bristol City on loan until January 15th.

"I've been looking for another striker able to take the weight off Aaron Wilbraham," boss Steve Cotterill told Bristol City's official website.

"We can't expect Aaron to play every game, week in, week out, especially with our progress in the cup competitions and subsequent midweek matches.

"We're pleased to have secured Matt's services until the end of January. He's a good lad, a powerful forward and someone who can share the load up front."

And the news has prompted plenty of reaction from both Leeds United and Fulham fans.

Leeds supporters have plenty of sympathy for the 25-year-old, who was promised a new contract before being sold to the west London side. Fulham supporters, meanwhile, seem split into two camps: those that question Felix Magath's initial signing of the striker - and those who feel current manager Kit Symons should give the forward more of a chance.

Here is a sample of what both sets of fans are saying on Twitter...
