Leeds United and Huddersfield Town are awaiting the verdict on the talking point from yesterday. Both sides were involved as most of the players and staff squared up to each other after Huddersfield’s late winner.

The incident began when Huddersfield netted in the dying minutes of a game where they deserved to win in reality. What followed wasn’t great to see and to be fair to Garry Monk what would anyone else have done in that situation? David Wagner flew past the Leeds technical area and onto the pitch to celebrate with his players. He said it was emotional and it’s an emotional game and he’s right. Does that give someone the right to do what he did? Not for me it doesn’t, if Garry Monk had done that then the stadium would have erupted and it wouldn’t have only been the players and staff kicking off.

Monk then made a point of stepping in front of Wagner on the way back and all hell broke loose. Wagner began roaring as he grabbed Monk, Jansson arrived on the scene as did a kamikaze Gaetano Berardi. As most players got involved Kachunga grabbed Jansson by the neck (surely a punishment will follow) and as well as bookings Garry Monk and David Wagner were both sent to the stands. Wagner apologised for running on the pitch in the end and Monk laid into the Huddersfield boss about being disrespectful. The FA are now looking into the matter and it is widely expected that both sides and managers will face fines in the coming days.

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
