Leeds United: Fans can’t believe Millwall’s Tom Bradshaw wasn’t punished retrospectively

Leeds United fans were left fuming that Millwall’s Tom Bradshaw was not handed down any retrospective punishment, despite Gaetano Berardi’s red card being rescinded.

BBC Sport journalist Adam Pope revealed on Twitter that he had an understanding that the forward would not face any sanctions as the Football Association believed the penalty incident did not meet the threshold whereby it could be referred to the relevant panel regarding whether it was an act of ‘successful deception of a match official’.

Obviously, the penalty resulted in the opening goal of the game after just 15 minutes on the clock and meant Leeds would end up losing the match with their fierce rivals 2-1.

Naturally, there would also be a case that the sending off of Berardi had a huge impact on the outcome of the game as well, as the Whites were clearly disadvantaged for the following 75 minutes or so.

Upon hearing that Bradshaw and Millwall would not be punished, supporters took to Twitter to vent their anger and disgust towards the FA for their decision, with many feeling that the aforementioned ‘threshold’ was higher for them than it was for any other club in the English Football League.

Here are just some of their reactions to the news…
