Leeds fans all take aim at one man after Aston Villa stalemate

Stuart Attwell’s name has taken its place front and centre online post-match


Supporters of Leeds United have flooded to social media on Sunday evening, to make clear their frustrations with one key contributor to their latest result.

The Whites, of course, were back in action a short time ago.

In their first outing on the back of what felt like a lengthy international break, Jesse Marsch’s troops welcomed Aston Villa to Elland Road, hopeful of building on a solid if unspectacular opening to the campaign at the expense of their underperforming opponents.

When all was said and done, though, the evening’s hosts were forced to settle for a share of the spoils.

This came as a hard-fought 90 minutes ultimately gave way to a 0-0 final scoreline in west Yorkshire.

Leeds’ share of the spoils on Sunday only came, though, after the Peacocks’ hopes of a three-point haul were all but ended by referee Stuart Attwell early in the 2nd-half.

A moment of indiscipline on the part of Luis Sinisterra saw the summer arrival at Elland Road sent for an early bath with just 48 minutes on the clock, leaving Marsch and co. to battle on with their backs firmly against the wall.

And, as alluded, such a development has since left many of a Leeds persuasion absolutely livid with the aforementioned Attwell.

Whilst most appear to agree that Sinisterra’s actions were indefensible, sheer ‘inconsistency’ on the part of the official has been widely highlighted across social media.

This come amid suggestions that Aston Villa’s stars were treated far more leniently across the 90 minutes:
