never thought this would actually ever happen and i never even begun to apprehend how horrible it’d be
Last night football took another hard hit, after the completely disgraceful scenes at Hillsborough during the Yorkshire derby between Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United, which saw Wednesday goalkeeper Chris Kirkland attacked by a Leeds fan.
The ‘fan’ came onto the pitch from Kirkland’s left side and ran into his view, immediately after Michael Tonge equalised for Leeds, taunting the Wednesday stopper before pushing him in the face with two hands at force, seeing the keeper fall to the floor and exiting the pitch at the right of the net - completely averting all stewards.
Chris Kirkland needed medical attention but did continue and see out the remaining ten plus minutes. However afterwards was said to be shocked and left the ground in tears. Wednesday’s manager Dave Jones said this of the matter and how the Leeds players and Warnock saluted the fans, “They are vile animals. You talk about racism in the game, but what about the chanting and everything else? It’s a form of racism in itself, but then, to go and wave at them? No, not in my book.”
He went on, “I’ve had a go at Neil Warnock, I know they are their fans, but you don’t go and wave at them after they’ve done that. It’s an absolute disgrace, I thought that had gone out of the game. The authorities had better look at it, and they had better sort it. Otherwise, they will keep doing it.”
And lastly added, “And I’m talking about an incident instead of the football, and that’s why it was so crazy because it was a great game. High intensity, a few chances, two good goals, and instead we’re talking about vile animals, and that’s what they are - all of them.” Jones also suggested Leeds fans should be banned from every away ground.
What has football come to?
