Leeds United lost 1-0 at Birmingham on Saturday afternoon.
Kemar Roofe has come under fire from Leeds United fans following his performance in Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Birmingham City.
The 24-year-old attacker spearheaded Leeds' forward line ahead of Pierre-Michel Lasosgga on a day when Roofe - who had four goals in his last four Championship games - didn't turn up.
The former Oxford United man, who joined the Whites for £3 million (The Yorkshire Post) under Garry Monk 18 months ago, only touched the ball 30 times in his 90-minute spell at St Andrews.
And fans of the Elland Road club haven't been kind to him on Twitter.
Roofe might have played well but he's not good— Micky Padge (@mickipadgett) December 30, 2017
you were right Ken. Shaughnessy was poor today. Can't win a header and a big lad. Roofe abysmal— sam (usaiz) (@sam51h) December 30, 2017
I would mate Roofe to lightweight up front for me! Just my option like!— jason spence (@jasonspence4) December 30, 2017
Roofe is not good enoigh.— jayjay82 (@jwh1982) December 30, 2017
Roofe is the physical embodiment of the term 'blows hot and cold'...on his day, he can be a match winner, but more often than not, he seems a frustrated, and frustrating, bystander.— paolo.verde (@mrpaoloverde) December 30, 2017
And I will take pelters for this, but Roofe is only an occasional central striker. He's not good enough there to be our first choice. Not saying Lasogga is currently showing he'd be any better, but Roofe can't be the focal point for all types of game. #lufc— CK (@ephemeraljoy) December 30, 2017
Beats me how he hasn’t brought roofe off for lasogga yet! Roofe has barely touched the ball todat, it’s clear we need something different up there #lufc— Adam Room (@AdamRoom17) December 30, 2017
Roofe giving away needless fouls, frustration showing. On a yellow... needs to chill or be subbed.— AleX-Mas (@riotbadger) December 30, 2017
Roofe is certainly a good striker, and his two-hat-tricks for Leeds this season prove as much, but he can drift out of games completely and that isn't an envious trait to have.
In the second half of the campaign, Thomas Christiansen is going to need a consistent, reliable striker and if one is available in January then Director of Football Victor Orta should do everything he can to get him.
It could well be the difference between reaching the Premier League or not.
