Leeds United: Loads of fans angry at refereeing standards so far this season

Leeds United: Loads of fans angry at refereeing standards so far this season - Leeds United

While VAR has been the main source of controversy in the Premier League, the basics of refereeing standards have been causing a stir in the Championship, particularly when it comes to Leeds. The Athletic’s Leeds writer Phil Hay reported that clubs aren’t clamouring for the introduction of VAR but feel the quality of officiating has slipped.

QPR’s goal against Leeds shouldn’t have stood at the weekend, and VAR would most probably have overturned it. Nahki Wells quite clearly controlled the ball with his hand before scoring the only goal of the game, but the match officials didn’t see it and the Whites paid the price. It’s not the only time Leeds have had a right to feel hard done by, and one example would be Gaetano Berardi’s red card vs Millwall.

It was clear that fans hold the same view as many EFL clubs, by the looks of Twitter. When Phil Hay shared his article on the platform, many Leeds fans replied to show just how angry they are at the lack of quality coming from referees in the Championship.

You can see some of their reactions to the tweet below:

Leeds fans, what are your thoughts on the standard of officiating so far this season?
