'Over to you EFL', 'Disgusting behaviour' – These Leeds fans react to official QPR tweet
QPR beat Leeds United on Saturday thanks to a highly controversial goal.
Put simply, it shouldn’t have stood, with the referee missing not one but two handballs from Nahki Wells as he put in a decent impression of Michael Jordan in the Leeds box.
Not content with taking the points, QPR decided to rub in the fact that they’d scored a goal they shouldn’t have on their official Twitter account.
🤷♂️ No VAR, no problem…

The message read “No VAR, no problem…” and is accompanied by a clip of Wells turning and winking at the camera.
Unsurprisingly, a lot of Leeds fans didn’t see the funny side of it and piled onto Twitter to slam Saturday’s opponents.
Our view? The Leeds social media account can be brutal and it’s not QPR’s fault that the referee on Saturday decided to go missing at the crucial point.
Kemar Roofe didn’t ‘fess up when he scored with his hand against Nottingham Forest and Leeds fans would have been up in arms if he had.
We’ve just got to take this one on the chin and move on, although it’s perhaps not the wisest tweet from QPR.
That was the view of a few Leeds’ fans too, with one saying you had to see the “funny side” of the tweet, although he also warned that the EFL might be looking at it.
Got to see the funny side in this tweet even as a Leeds fan…. show was on the other foot I’d love it! Problem might be that the @EFL said they would punish stuff like this, however as it’s against us I’m sure you’ll be fine!

Other fans completely failed to see the funny side of it, though, and called on the EFL to take action.
Cheats. don’t know how much you paid the officials. How both could miss 2 handballs is beyond me.
