The fall-out from the 21-man melee that followed Leeds United opening goal at the weekend against Aston Villa continues, after the FA rescinded the red card shown to Villa winger Anwar El Ghazi and charged Whites striker Patrick Bamford with play acting. One player who was not retrospectively charged was Villa midfielder Conor Hourihane, who controversially grabbed Mateusz Klich by the scruff of the neck following his opening goal. But former Villa striker Garry Thompson, speaking to BBC Radio West Midlands Football Phone-in (30/04/2019), praised Hourihane for standing up and defending his teammates. So, is Thompson right to praise Hourihane's actions? We discuss........ Alfie Burns "It is a little bit of a thuggish statement. "Hourihane was out of order with his reaction to Klich's goal and I'm still amazed he wasn't punished. "To defend that is ridiculous." Gary Hutchinson "I wasn't happy with what I saw against Leeds from him. "I don't think his actions deserved praise at all. "Was Jansson praised for defending his teammates in trying to stop the goal? "No, nobody came out of that with any credit." George Brooks "You've got to admire the passion from Hourihane and the way he was prepared to stick up for his teammates. "He certainly had a right to be angry with Klich, but he has got to learn to keep his emotions in check. "He took a big risk and was very lucky not to have been sent off. "If Klich reacted the same way Bamford did during the incident with El Ghazi, I think Hourihane would have been in big trouble."The fall-out from the 21-man melee that followed Leeds United opening goal at the weekend against Aston Villa continues, after the FA rescinded the red card shown to Villa winger Anwar El Ghazi and charged Whites striker Patrick Bamford with play acting.
