Leeds: Gabby Agbonlahor makes Elland Road claim

Leeds: Gabby Agbonlahor makes Elland Road claim -Leeds United News

Pundit Gabby Agbonlahor believes Leeds United should be punished after what’s happened at Elland Road this week, Football Insider report.  

The Lowdown: Paper everywhere

Leeds organised a pre-game mosaic for fans against Manchester City, with sheets of paper left on seats in the east stand for supporters to hold up ahead of kick-off.

However, once the game got underway and the Whites fell behind, fans were quick to throw sheets at visiting players, especially Jack Grealish in the second half, with Gary Neville lambasting the Elland Road faithful during Sky Sports’ coverage.

Even Leeds star Raphinha had some thrown his way when preparing to take a corner, with Jesse Marsch’s side eventually losing 4-0.

The Latest: Agbonlahor’s comments

Agbonlahor, who contributes for Sky Sports, was talking to FI regarding the antics on the weekend. He labelled it as ‘very strange behaviour’ and feels the club ‘should be punished’ as a result.

Will Marsch keep Leeds up?

Yes, I still have faith!

No, we are finished!

“It doesn’t matter that it’s only paper, they were putting the players off.

“It came to the stage where they throwing it at Raphinha, their own player, and he was having an argument with his own fans.

“It’s very strange behaviour and it’s very strange from the stewards and the police to not stop it. It came to a stage where there was loads on the pitch.

“If they get away with throwing paper then what’s next? Do they put something inside the paper and throw it?

“You can’t say it’s not a problem. I think they should be punished for that to stop them doing it again.”

The Verdict: No more paper…

Elland Road doesn’t need regular pre-game mosaics to provide an atmosphere, so we feel as if Leeds chiefs should stay away from the paper sheets going forward.

Leeds supporters regularly use scarves to create a brilliant visual atmosphere, something that would work better and keep the club out of any possible trouble with the FA.

It wouldn’t be a shock if the club were contacted regarding Saturday’s events, but hopefully, we won’t see any more paper in the club’s final two home games with Chelsea and Brighton.
