West Bromwich Albion fans weren’t the only fans across football watching on when it came to last weekend’s antics between Leeds United and Aston Villa at Elland Road.

Both sides are in the mix for the Play-Off spots and we could potentially meet both if we succeed on our route through to the final at Wembley, but the game held more than simply watching a potential opponent.

With disagreements over whether or not the ball should’ve been put out after Jonathan Kodjia went down, some spoke of Mats Klich’s goal being offside. Others focused on the clashes that took place after he scored and that’s before we even got to a red card involving Patrick Bamford or Marcelo Bielsa ‘spying’ an opportunity for some good press as he instructed his side to let them walk the ball in to equalise.

The Football Association got involved and El Ghazi’s red card was scrubbed off with Patrick Bamford charged with successful deception of a referee, but the independent FA panel also looked at the incident between Conor Hourihane and goalscorer Klich.

Reviewing the footage they decided that ‘whatever’ had happened between the pair wasn’t violent conduct, and it’s left fans angry, confused, bemused and with even less faith in the footballing authorities.

The mind boggles.
