The pundit was discussing the Leeds supporters as well as those at Chelsea and Manchester United.
Indeed, he first mentioned the thousands of Chelsea and Manchester United supporters that travelled to lower-league opposition on Friday night and Sunday afternoon.
Wright’s tweet came in response to one Chelsea fan who ranted on the radio about scrapping the tournament!

And it was pointed out to Wright on Twitter that Leeds took more fans than both sides to the FA Cup, prompting a one-word response from the pundit and former striker.
Some argued that Leeds fans were given a larger allocation due to Bolton’s predicament. But, as a counter point to that, United supporters would probably travel in larger groups anyway…
The cup will provide a welcome distraction for a number of teams this season and it will certainly be handy for Leeds.
Many fans are holding out hope for a play-off push but, this season, that will be very difficult indeed.
