Warnock And Bitter

Submitted: 11/02/12 (Edited 11/02/12)
Description: The Leeds United manager Neil Warnock on the sidelines watches the action on the Hillsborough pitch. Alongside United's manager stands Dave Jones the manager of Sheffield Wednesday. Following a minor pitch invasion by the Leeds fans after United equalised, which saw the Wednesday goalkeeper pushed to the ground, Jones called for every Leeds supporter to be banned from travelling away. The Wednesday boss went on to describe 'all' the Leeds fans as 'vile animals' and also berated United manager Warnock after he led the Leeds players to applaud the travelling White Army after the game. Jones unfortunately did not comment about the Turkey chants that came from the home support, or the missiles and smoke bombs that were thrown by the Wednesday supporters. Around 5,500 Leeds fans made the trip to Sheffield, around 20 Leeds fans invaded the pitch and one Leeds fan pushed the Wednesday keeper. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on the 19th October, 2012.
