“Everyone is talking about one idiot. It isn’t one idiot. They were ripping out seats, throwing bottles and when the lad attached Chris Kirkland he ran back into the crowd and they – the fans - hid him," Jones told the Sports Bar.
“Don’t think it was just one person. It wasn’t one supporter chanting; it wasn’t just one supporter ripping out one seat, it was 30 or 40.
“I call them animals and that’s what they are. They shouldn’t be allowed to go to a football match, that’s how strongly I feel about it.
“It’s not water of a ducks back when my family are in the crowd and my 11-year-old Grandson is hearing it.
They shouldn’t be allowed to go to a football match, that’s how strongly I feel about it.
“For someone to attack someone on the pitch it doesn’t matter who it is, I thought those days had gone.
“I feel sorry for the police to be honest, when you have mindless idiots. It was one supporter who went on the pitch, but what about the rest that went to protect and hide him.”
The Wednesday boss was equally unhappy with Leeds manager Neil Warnock, who encouraged his players to applaud the away fans and said that Kirkland ‘went down like a ton of bricks'
Now that isn't labelling all Leeds fans animals, he is talking about 30 or 40. Now presumably these "fans" bought their tickets through Leeds United Football Club. In which case, Leeds have some questions to answer, especially in the light of Warnock's decision to applaud the away support. With the help of TV images, it must surely be easy to identify every one of those involved, based on the club's record of who purchased tickets. Sheffield Wednesday will also be able to identify which seats were torn off and thrown onto the pitch.
Leeds should now publicly shame those involved and must make greater efforts to ensure this scum never ever get into a football stadium again. Meanwhile, Warnock must be charged with bringing the game into disrepute and for encouraging hooliganism - his post match comments were inappropriate and the applauding of that section of the ground was little short of disgraceful. He might like to offer a personal apology to the grandson of Dave Jones. How appalling that an 11 year old boy was forced to witness that. And still I have Leeds 'fans' coming on here posting obscene comments about Jones. Just one moron? Warnock should take over moderating this site, then he will find out how many morons there are amongst the fan base of Leeds UNITED football club -
MOT implies COLLECTIVE RESPONSIBILITY does it not?
