Leeds fans rage over Livermore tackle in West Brom win v QPR

Image for Leeds fans rage over Livermore tackle in West Brom win v QPR


Some Leeds United fans are absolutely furious that Jake Livermore was not sent off in West Brom’s 3-2 win against QPR on Tuesday night for a challenge on Ebere Eze. Livermore went on to score a last-minute winner for Albion in stoppage time, which has got some Whites supporters in meltdown, with a couple even suggesting that corruption is the reason why the England international didn’t see red. Firstly, Livermore would not have had to score a last-minute winner if it wasn’t for the referee incorrectly awarding QPR a penalty in the second-half. The Rs’ penalty was also awarded after goalkeeper Joe Lumley avoided a red card for purposely handling the ball outside of the area to deny a goalscoring opportunity – something the referee missed. It is baffling to see how far some Leeds fans go to suggest that there is some kind of high-level corruption or a conspiracy against them. One United fan even came up with one of the funniest tweets of the season to suggest that West Brom – a club that has had to take a bank loan this season – has paid the EFL to get themselves promoted. Brilliant.
