'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Owls boss blasts Leeds fans

Wednesday boss Dave Jones blasted Leeds United supporters following Friday night's 1-1 derby draw at Hillsborough.

One 'fan' ran on the pitch to strike Wednesday goalkeeper Chris Kirkland after Michael Tonge hit the visitors' 77th minute equaliser, leaving the stopper requiring treatment, probably for shock more than anything else, for five minutes.

It wasn't just that highlighted incident that riled Jones, however. Visiting fans also ripped advertising boards down from the top tier before throwing them down on to their fellow Leeds fans below them, and threw seats on to the pitch in scenes similar to Leeds fans at the other side of the city at Bramall Lane a few years ago.

Chants were also aimed at the Owls boss throughout, and he was left fuming at the unacceptable scenes.

"I`m really sad that we`re not talking about the football but what we saw tonight is unacceptable,' he said post-match.

"They should be banned from every away ground now. They should be punished. It is just upsetting that they are able to do it.

'The authorities have to look at it and sort it. I'm talking about an incident when we should be talking about the football.'

Kirkland spoke to police about the incident after the match and the Football Association has confirmed it will investigate the scenes when they receive the referee's report.

It's so dissapointing to see the league table and it could look a little worse later, but hey lets have a look it the performance. Kirkland nothing to do exept pick the ball out of the net. Bechio has been a pain in the but to every defence he's played against this season. He never got a sniff well done Llera / Gardner. Jones is really a squad player and you could tell but he was giving 100% Buxton was cool and sensible in possesion and supported well going forward. They were terrified of Antonio and hes getting to the standard now we expect. Samedo was fantastic and Diouf could not shake him off for a second what a performance. Barkley obviously has class and looked a little more confident but still gave the ball away in some dodgy areas. Corry I think never wasted one ball last night and won't be long before he is a regukar in my opinion. Bothroyd lets be fair now he proved last night that he is 100% committed definately match fit now and had I think a great game O,Grady it doesnot matter if we are playing Man Utd or Barnet he plays with the same agression passion and commitment well done boys UTO

Will the real jay bothroyd please stand up, it's been along time coming but last night we may have seen the true potential, still wasted plenty I games playing him but now we may benefit from him. The team played well last night, tonges goal was unstoppable but we should have won that game in the first half. Final third is still a let down and work to do.

So Dave Jones thinks a decent society shouldn't allow "animals" like Leeds fans to attend any more away games .. ever ?? - would that be a different decent society from the one that would put all boy buggering child abusers in prison .. for ever??

He was found innocent because none of the witnesses turned up to court as they were just after some compensation, apparantly. Totally exonerated. Funny comment from the dirty Leeds scum considering they were singing theres only one jimmy saville. Leeds United, Neil warnock, Ken bates, Michael Brown, Diouf and Leeds Supporters - they all deserve each other!

Apparently this so-called supporter travelled all the way from Cheltenham of all places and already has several banning orders for different grounds around the country. How then was he allowed entry on Friday night? If he is so intent on attacking people stick him in a uniform & send him to Basra. It's all pointing to ID cards - no card, no entry.

No one should be surprised, the 'vile animals' from up the M1 have always been there and always will be. The media explodes with amazement that this can have happened! Those of us who have had to endure them at our grounds, and have gone in fear to their awful city know that it wasn't all about 'one fan'. The scum who welcomed him back into their midst with smiles and pats on the back have their faces on the TV pictures and should be treated in the same way by the police. I am a huge fan of Warnock, but sending his players to applaud the 'fans' was well out of order, and saying in his interview that Kirkland went down like a sack of spuds, whilst true, was also very stupid. Regarding the football game - remember that ? Tonge's goal was almost as enjoyable as his top corner free kick goal in the derby a few years ago.

So let me get this straight, The guy ISN'T from Leeds, Leeds DIDN'T provide him with a ticket, it WASN'T Leeds' stadium that the incident happened at and it WASN'T Elland Rd security that failed to have procedures in place to prevent a person on a banning order getting into their stadium?? ... am I missing something??

did you need to tell me twice radon? ... did you need to tell me twice radon? (just in case its a stutter) - I have no problem calling the t**t that slapped Kirkland a Moron - he is a complete tosser - my problem is how Leeds as a club are getting all the stick - there's no way he would have gotten into Elland Rd and almost every other team in league let Leeds' own stewards look after turnstiles for them to keep idiots like this Aaaron Crawley out - I just dont see what the club could have done to keep him out (word has it he tried to get into Brammall lane last season but got spotted and pulled by a steward who knew his face) - oh and Andymac ... I'm Sheffield Scum as it goes :-)

Waddle1993, bang on, Leeds will be very happy to focus the attention on the one "who isn't even from Leeds". There were at least 10 who jumped on the pitch (illegal to enter the playing surface), there were several hundred who were ripping out seats, several thousand who were chanting about DJ, then the "crew" who welcomed the "single" tosser back into the fold, patted him on the back and shepherded him to the safety of the back of the stand. Yeah not all Leeds fans are scum, but from what I saw the majority were on Friday night. This "single" dickhead will be dealt with by the courts now, but the only way that football will eradicate the rest of them is if the club and the FA act and do something. For starters Leeds could have made a point of not applauding there so called fans, I noticed Varney walked away in disgust despite Colin telling him "it was only 1"! The club could have made a stronger statement not just condemning this one fan, but also the actions of the rest of them for the violence and thuggery, the FA can then act with a short term banning order.

I too saw Varney refuse and Warnock having a word with him about it. Cant believe any of them did, for me the players were cheating too, laying on the ground untill they were back in possesion,I particulally liked it when Diouf tried to push Samedo and he didnt even move a millimetre... just smiled. Just confirmed what we have always know. we all hate Leeds Scum
