‘Got away with murder’ – Leeds fans can’t believe how the FA have ignored any retrospective punishment for Reading’s Tyler Blackett (Tweets)

When the FA‘s official Twitter account tweeted out earlier today that Leeds defender Liam Cooper was charged for violent conduct against Reece Oxford in an incident that was not seen by any of the match officials, they surely didn’t anticipate the kind of backlash it would cause amongst Leeds fans.

During the same game, there was another incident involving Chris Wood and Reading defender Tyler Blackett. The former Manchester United man gave Wood a taste of his elbow and the scuffle was once again not spotted by the match officials, meaning retrospective action was a necessity here as well.

However, the fact that it didn’t happen led to Leeds fans taking to Twitter with a lot of justified anger against the FA. Whilst the retrospective action rule is a good one, it needs to be applied in a manner that doesn’t seem to be biased or unfair in any way.
