'Totally unacceptable', 'You're better than that' – Some Leeds fans react to Palace ace comments

Andros Townsend had a very brief ill-fated loan spell at Leeds United back in 2012 but he was back to haunt the fans over the weekend at Selhurst Park.

He popped up again on talkSPORT on Tuesday morning to pick over the bones of the game and he was very complimentary about Leeds.

He said that Leeds United were an “incredible” side and that he thoroughly enjoyed playing them in the flesh after seeing them on TV this season.

He was also, obviously, asked about that offside decision that’s been one of the main talking points of the weekend.

There, he was slightly more contentious, saying that it was offside and that while he’s not a fan of VAR, rules are rules.

Obviously, being the contentious bit, that was what was wrapped up for one of talkSPORT’s bite-sized bait-a-thons on Twitter.

Plenty of Leeds fans fell for it and while we don’t agree with what he said, we don’t really have a problem with any of it.

He’s a Crystal Palace player and we’re pretty sure some of the Leeds side would be saying the same thing if we’d won 4-1 and got the decision.

However, many Leeds fans feel differently and he picked up a number of replies that might prove to him that he’s still got a long way to go if he wants to be forgiven for his loan spell back in the day.

Here are the best reactions to Townsend’s comments…
