Trevor Sinclair makes damning comment about Elland Road crowd during Leeds defeat

Trevor Sinclair claims Elland Road was unrecognisable as Leeds lost to Blackburn Rovers on Thursday.

Pundit Trevor Sinclair took to Twitter on Thursday night to criticise everything going on with Leeds United, following a 2-0 home defeat to Blackburn Rovers.

The game was supposed to be the big home debut of new manager Steve Evans, but two goals in the first six minutes from Craig Conway and Jordan Rhodes handed Rovers all three points.

The defeat means that Leeds haven't won at home in the league this season, and are without a victory at Elland Road since March.

It's a growing concern for Leeds and new boss Evans, with audible chants aimed at owner Massimo Cellino throughout the second half.

The whole performance and atmosphere was an indictment of how far Leeds have fallen, and former England international Trevor Sinclair has had his say on the problems at Elland Road.

Having now had six different managers under Cellino, Leeds fans are growing increasingly disgruntled, and Sinclair took to Twitter to say that he didn't recognise Elland Road, due to the poor performance, the attendance and the general atmosphere against Blackburn.

Sinclair will have played Elland Road during his time in the Premier League, and those days seem a long, long time ago for Leeds fans, who are still waiting for that elusive home win, having been nothing short of terrible at Elland Road so far in 2015.

Sinclair added that Leeds fans deserve more - and that's certainly the case. Often one of the best supported teams in the Championship, a return to the Premier League would be great to see, but Evans may end up having to focus on avoiding relegation after another torrid display.
