Hoo-boy.

Leeds United U23s played a “friendly” against Rhyl FC which didn’t end up very friendly. From the sounds of it, basically what I saw retweeted on Twitter, the Rhyl FC players were playing dirty all match until it all boiled over. The video that was posted online showed a member of Rhyl FC trying to punch Paudie O’Connor.

Even if there was some pushing and shoving after some questionable tackles, the senior players at Rhyl had responsibility to not let things boil over and a responsibility to not try and get into a fist fight with some teenagers. It’s a bad look for Rhyl, no matter if Leeds were the “big” team here, as they were supposed to be the adults on the pitch. Seriously, who wants to have their U23s go somewhere to play and fear that the other team is going to start a fight?

Anyway, on to the links.

Caleb Ekuban spoke at the press conference yesterday about today’s travel to Wolves, and said some thing about the team not worrying about who they were playing, as if he was going to suddenly say “have you SEEN Wolves play this year? Christ, we’re gonna have to play a lot better than we did against Sheffield Wednesday or we’re screwed!” [Leeds United.com]
