Ryan Edmondson has been one of the stars of Carlos Corberan’s young Leeds United side.
The Leeds United Under-23s striker Ryan Edmondson has criticised his latest performance on Twitter.
Edmondson, who is among the top scorers in the Professional Development League this season, failed to find the net against Crewe Alexandra on Monday – although he did assist his side’s first goal, scored by Jamie Shackleton.
Leeds went on to win 2-1 courtesy of Pascal Struijk’s effort after James Jones equalised for the hosts.
But posting afterwards, Edmonson wrote:
The tweet was contested by many of Edmonson’s followers, including Shackleton, who replied:

Edmo, as you are scoring for fun in U24s does MB ever mention to you about stepping up to the first team squad? Shack, great news you are on the mend, you should be in for QPR, we need you to mix it up a bit.— david roberts (@davidro83728290) January 13, 2020

There is however concern among some Leeds supporters afterwards over the striker’s lack of recent involvement at first-team level.
Edmondson has appeared twice for Leeds, including once under the current Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa last season.
But despite being the club’s only fit centre-forward after Patrick Bamford now Eddie Nketiah has returned to Arsenal, the York-born player is still awaiting a recall.
And there are fears that his Leeds career might not last much longer…
Edmondson will end up being sold soon. 1 striker at the club and can’t get a sniff of the bench.— peter corbett (@petercorbett27) January 13, 2020
It’s going to be awkward when Ryan Edmondson leaves Leeds and breaks Alan Shearer’s scoring record.— I Hate Leeds (@ihatelufc) January 13, 2020
Why does Bielsa not rate him ? Any rumours? Clearly an issue somewhere !— Paul Kettlewell (@PKdalesman) January 13, 2020
I’m puzzled too, especially wrt Ryan Edmondson. What’s wrong with him that Bielsa doesn’t like?— LUFC Shah Alam (@AlamLufc) January 14, 2020
My main worry is bamford getting injured after 5 mins on Saturday and having no striker to bring on should Edmondson be on bench even if mb don’t rate him— Stephen Fitzpatrick (@stephenfitzpa15) January 13, 2020
Leeds fans – is Edmondson due another call-up?
