Leeds United reporter Phil Hay shared his views on a controversial incident against Newcastle United involving Dan James.
And, as to be expected, Hay’s Twitter post had plenty of Leeds fans talking on social media.
Raphinha gave Leeds an early lead, and Leeds should’ve possibly been given a penalty after James collided with Joe Willock inside the area.
Mike Dean had a clear view of the challenge but decided not to award a penalty, with VAR also not getting involved.
Hay revealed he didn’t get a replay of the tackle on Friday night but now believes that Leeds had a ‘very strong shout’ for a spot-kick.
Leeds fans react
The well-known reporter’s Twitter post on Saturday morning led to a number of Leeds fans sharing their thoughts, with plenty still fuming that a penalty wasn’t given.
“Perhaps a clear and obvious error. Shambles”
“Mental. Stone wall pen and it didn’t even get looked at?”
“Strong shout it’s a stonewaller, absolute joke”
“Clear and obvious penalty for anyone but Leeds. Another awful decision against us.”
“Is that not why we have VAR? If not then what’s the point at all?!”
“The refereeing in England is abysmal”
