Leeds: Relegation and Embarrassment

With 10 minutes to go of Leeds` penultimate chapter of their great escape story, [player name] rose to score an equaliser that, if not responded to was likely to seal the clubs relegation to the Football League 2 courtesy of Hull City playing out the last few minutes of their victory, a single blow of the whistle from the referee brought chaos at Elland Road.

A section of fans entered the playing area with 4 minutes to go, seemingly intent on making their way across to where the Ipswich fans were, luckily the police were switched on, forming a line between the two sets of supporters. It`s been reported (albeit from unofficial sources) that a number of fearful Ipswich fans then left the ground, the players and officials made for the safety of the dressing rooms.

Despite repeated tannoy announcements from the club, pointing out to those mindless idiots on the pitch that the final minute of the game was to be played as soon as they got off the pitch; it took 30 minutes for order to be restored. Those not involved in the utterly pointless, and reckless pitch invasion made their thoughts heard with chants of "you`re the scum of Elland Road."

I would like to add my support to those turning on the so called supporters. Had they stopped to contemplate the fact that relegation will cause a drop in revenue, an investigation and more than likely a heavy fine will cripple the club even further. An added worry would be a possible albeit unlikely points deduction. Those fans on the pitch yesterday will be the same fans at the first game of next season shouting and swearing at the FA, should we start League One on -3 points.

As I mentioned, "scum" is too polite a word for those that ruined the last home game of the season. Credit must go to the players who came back out after the final whistle, to applaud those Leeds fans who did stick by them until the very end.

I've just posted 3 articles within the hour and a half I've been awake. Give up your attempts of humour are useless.

Hartlepool got threatened with a points deduction when just 2 fans ran onto the pitch, they escaped it but god knows what the FA will do when they see how big the Leeds pitch invasion was.
DanielGaunt
Its obvoius they will come down hard on Leeds thats what they like to do at the Fa. The humour from fans of opposing clubs is to be expected its all part of being a fan and I am sure if the boot was on the other foot we would be happily mocking the downfall of that club. We just have to take it on the chin and lets hope we are not the butt of their jokes this time next season!

A lot will suffer for the acts of a few, but a deterant has to be dished out to avoid copycat incidents. Sorry to see Leeds in the state they are in, but not for Wisey or Poyet they shafted us to leave for Leeds and that smart assed git Bates - Good luck to the true supporters of Leeds.

Points deduction maybe, or a bloody big fine

LUFC1,YOUR LOOSING YOUR COOL.I WOULD KICK YOU OUT THE LEAGUE ALL TOGETHER.YOUR SH*T AND YOU KNOW YOU ARE!!!!
SweetLeftFoot
I'm quite calm actually. I laugh at you clowns that have nothing better to do than insult over the internet. Take your weapon of choice, your keyboard and naff off.
LUFC1
The Fa have already said it will not be a points deduction. I just hope if they change their minds its this season and not next.
dazza71
It will seem strange (if Forest don't come up) that the once great Leeds Utd could be playing the once Euro Giant Nottingham Forest in 3rd Division Football and against Hartlepools. All of the week-end will be forgotten if you come back up next season. Football needs sides like Leeds in an elevated position. Football may be the loser with their absence.
pompeygray
all i can say is i hope we will get back to where we belong
Super-Leeds
down but not out we`ll be back and back soon!!
