Did anyone watch the match on TV?

Reports said that Leeds scored when Villa had a man down injured.  The ball was expected to be put out of play or play stopped.

Villa then had a man sent off for what TV showed to be "no contact on Bamford."  Leeds then sportingly allowed Villa to score and equalise without stopping them.

The 1-1 draw means that between them both teams can finish in all 4 of the play-off positions.  The dynamics of who plays who and when may have changed.

The draw means that Sheff United are promoted, although there were there really after the win last night.

I saw it and it at least livened the game up. Apparently Villa had pit it out for Leeds earlier. I think what incensed the Villa players was that the Leeds player on the ball pretty much stopped as though he was going to put it out then put a ball through when his team mate made a run. Loads of handbags after and Bamford went down clutching his face despite any contact being his chest. Bielsa ordered them to let Villa score but Pontus Jansson disagreed and ran across at the last minute to try and stop Adomah. If he'd succeeded it would have been chaos. And flipping hilarious.

Apparently Villa had put the ball out earlier in the match due to a Leeds injury.
The red card for Villa will probably be overturned,Bamford was made to look a total fraud.
Love to see Villa vs Leeds final after that.

I watched it...

A Villa player (Kodjia ) went down after a challenge ( which clearly wasn't a foul) and while there was a moment when Leeds could have put the ball out of touch to stop play, they took advantage of Villa players hesitation and not playing to the whistle and carried on up the field to score

It all kicked off with Villa's players having a go at the Leeds scorer (Klich I think he's called ) and in the melée, Bamford went down as if he'd been smacked in the face after a Villa lad swung his arm ( which hit him softly across his chest mabye)

The benches were all at each other but Bielsa realised that morally maybe Leeds shouldn't have played on so told his players to concede the equaliser straight from the kick off  

The trouble arises from the confusion over what is considered good sportsmanship when a player is genuinely injured or as we see so many times, players going to ground feigning injury just to break up play

The only one who really disgraced himself was Bamford, clutching his face, when there was no contact made at all - if there's any justice he'll get a retrospective ban and the red card El Ghazi got will be overturned

It meant Villa had 10 men for the last 15 minutes but as it stayed 1-1, no damage done reallly although I half expected it to all start over again at the final whistle

What a load of idiots, Villa stupid for not playing to the whistle, Leeds player going down holding his face (20 game ban  and 3 months wage fine please, the only way to stop this play acting happening}  Bielsa letting them walk it in, how does Adoma  not get at least a yellow card for pushing Jansen 3 times because he wants to win and not let them walk it into the net.
Can you imagine Bobby C kicking it out of play after he had equalised someone.

Good on him.
Obviously some good PR after the spying incident.
Can you imagine the outrage if they hadn't

Unless it's a head injury, or a very nasty challenge where injury could be genuine, then the game should always continue, as said earlier, players are feigning injury to break up play. Also if you watch any prem game any challenge always finishes in a free kick one of the teams as the players will fall for vet and the referees will blow for a foul.

Villa stoped playing cos it suited them why should Leeds  stop ? It was the villa players rash challenge that started it in the first place , I was always taught play to the whistle. Anyway besides all that whose the young villa keeper born in Grimsby who plays for Montenegro under 21s who was on the bench today , and his brother is at Leeds ???

Villa stopped which was the main error but the Leeds lad shaped his body and gestured he was going to knock it out before putting the winger through on goal.

Bamford is a helmet for his acting

The problem is that football is awash with play acting cheats, and they've learnt to be good at it. We rightly criticise referees when they get it wrong but half the time they're being conned. In the man City v Brighton cup semi Martin Keown praised a Brighton player "that was a clever dive, buying his team some time when they were under pressure". WTF is happening?
