Leeds United were quite simply not even at the races on Saturday against Norwich City at Elland Road on Saturday. In many respects, the 3-1 loss actually flattered the Whites.

It could have been much, much worse as they were simply played off the pitch by a Canaries side who’d done their homework and who had their tactics just right.

Yes Leeds had opportunities, and yes there were decisions that went against them, but United cannot use these as excuses. Quite simply, they were second-best on the day and thoughts now turn to this weekend and Middlesbrough at The Riverside.

However, one point that began doing the rounds on social media is a bit of ‘afters’ involving Patrick Bamford and Canaries keeper Tim Krul (tweet-below).

The video quite clearly shows Tim Krul advance towards Leeds United’s Patrick Bamford, push past two teammates, and confront the Leeds United striker. Not only that, he also pushes Bamford before leaning his head towards him and, at the very least, initiating some semblance of an attempt at a headbutt.

It is the sort of incident that is tailor-made for social media and it certainly had fans complaining at the time. That’s certainly the case with this; here’s what some Leeds fans have had to say about the incident.

However, these fans will be left disappointed after Phil Hay revealed the news (below) that they already suspected would be the case.

With no charges being brought against Krul, here’s what some fans have reacted like to the news.

However, not all Leeds or of this persuasion; there are some who take the opposite view.
