Hull Live journalist comments on fall-out of Leeds fan troubles, labels situation a 'shambles'
Hull Live journalist Philip Buckingham has claimed that the Tigers will be debriefing with the relevant authorities over troubled caused by Leeds United fans in the home end of the KCOM Stadium.
Leeds fans were herded into the away end after being found out during the 4-0 victory, and that caused trouble during the Yorkshire derby.
We were at the game whilst that was happening, and many Leeds fans questioned why they weren’t being escorted out of the stadium once they were allowed to enter the away end.
Buckingham labelled the handling of the situation as a shambles, and it was clear to see why once videos were posted on social media.
“I believe the club will be having a debrief with the relevant authorities in the next 48 hours and we might know more after that,” he wrote in a Q&A for Hull Live.
“For what it’s worth, I thought it was a shambles. To have paraded a few Leeds fans along the length of the East Stand was simply asking for trouble and put the safety of fans in that area at risk.”

There is an added buzz around the club at this moment of time, and that was clear to see at the KCOM Stadium. There were pockets of Whites fans all around the ground, they were easy to pick out after each goal.
The demand for tickets is through the roof, and they usually sell out for games both home and away in a matter of days if not hours in certain cases.
Hull definitely didn’t manage that demand very well, and a shambles was the perfect way to describe what went on during the clash.
