I don't think this one is going away easily. Yes, we should all dust ourselves down and crack on etc, but the incident shows how openly aggressive some of the Leeds fans are, and how this is being tolerated by the club. Leeds won the game fair and square but they need to sort their sh1t out regarding the 'hate mob' strategy for their supporters. Leeds need to respond to this publicly or they will be seen to be advocating openly violent/aggressive behaviour from their fans. (In the disabled section FFS!)
If this had happened at the Amex, the bans would be flying all over the place and apologetic statements would have been made by now.
Have you seen the Muppet Show........
Disabled fan escorts should be seated not standing in the front row.

Would now be an appropriate time to say "I phucking hate Leeds"?
Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.
51,700 v Burnley last game in 1978/79. 4,005 v Wimbledon in 1984. Same division. I think this shows the real plastics.
From a Leeds fan:
I know all those guys that were involved. They sit in front of us. That old man in the hat never shuts the **** up. The guy that pushed him arrives after 20 minutes then leaves 20 minutes before full time. They're all old twats.
From a legal viewpoint it's absolutely 100% a common assault and battery against Uwe from the knuckle dragging Leeds fan, it should be for the police to deal with and take appropriate action. At the very least the tw4t should receive a lengthy ban. I suspect if in the likely event Uwe doesn't want to pursue the matter that will be the preferred outcome. Or Leeds can just allow players to continue to get assaulted by their fans, another possible outcome.
We need to employ Eric to train our players how to enter hostile crowds .
THOSE IN GLASS PALACES SHOULD NOT THROW BRICKS
