'Shame on you', 'Cheats' – These Leeds fans respond to official FA update

Leeds United director of football Victor Orta and head of communications James Mooney were charged by the FA after comments they made at half-time in the 3-2 win against Millwall.

Leeds were two down at the time and the victims of some horrific refereeing decisions that, among other things, saw Millwall awarded a penalty after the ball had clearly gone out of play for a throw-in.

Darren England was so poor as a referee that Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani felt obliged to tweet about him at half-time, saying he was “speechless”.

The FA have since announced that both Orta and Mooney would be hit with a one-game stadium ban as well as being fined £1,000 and £700 respectively.

That seems unnecessarily harsh, especially for Mooney who has a normal job at the club and won’t be on a huge wage.

We’d like to think the club will pick that one up for him but surely the stadium ban would have been sufficient?

That’s what the majority of Leeds fans think as they reacted to the news on Twitter.

The overriding question from the fans, though, was why wasn’t England being punished for his performance?

Some of the decisions he made in the first half of the game were truly baffling and he’s set to officiate in another high-profile Championship game between Wigan and Preston tomorrow.

This is what the Leeds fans think of the FA decision…
