Leeds fan captures moment he leaves Brighton fans livid by joining them in the home end

A Leeds United fan captures the moment he leaves Brighton fans livid by joining them in the home end in Saturday’s Premier League clash.

Twitter user @will_lufc58, who has since made his profile private, uploaded a video, captioning the tweet “Hahaha rattled the gay boys”, which will no doubt get himself into trouble with that alone.

The 23 second clip shows what took place during the heated moment, with extra stewards called to try and deal with the matter. Take a look below…

PC Darren Balkham tweeted: “There were a number of incidents we dealt with today but unfortunately we can’t be everywhere. Leeds United stewards were there today and details were passed where appropriate. Where incidents are reported we will look into them and they will be recorded.”

“You can also report direct on the kick it out app which also come to us as many do. I will give an undertaking that when incidents are reported, me and my team will look into each and every one.”

Sussex Police have also been contacted amid reports Leeds fans in the Upper West section of the stadium was seen to be spitting on kids.

This is what some Twitter users had to say on what took place…

@SimonFisher13; Shame one of them on the way out tried to pick a fight with my wife and 13 year old son… always DIRTY LEEDS!!!

@Willrees03: Said reality is he chose seats in the safest part of the ground to sit in. Also from the state of that away end surprised he didn’t get a ticket in it

@Brightonfan: Got completely out played by us on the pitch, off the pitch you are still living in the 1970s.

@sjh_bhafc: You obviously didn’t get on the train with them, that has to be worst experience I’ve had at the Amex, there were no police about, they were picking fights with everyone pushing down barriers, they were so aggressive an intimidating @OfficialBHAFC & @sussex_police

@seanbha4ever: Leeds fans in Upper West spitting on kids, stewards a joke, fans then get involved because of lack of training etc

@thethinker51: @SuspolBHAFC lots of lovely homophobic leeds fans again.👍

@BennettsField: Noisy yes. 10/10 for that. But out of the stadium they were just drunken northern twats. Never seen so many public urinations!! Weak bladders the lot of them. #bhafc #lufc

@Jaswanarth: As much as we would never call those Leeds fans plastics, I AM sad to say that homophobia was widespread today. Mainly those of a younger vintage of course. Doesn’t change the idiocy…

@ShutupDobs: 3 times in 24 hours I’ve seen #lufc fans using the word “gay” as a way of attempting to insult someone. It’s 2022, are people really still this homophobic? Our club puts their weight behind LGBTQ+ community to make them feel welcome within the sport. Sort yourselves out.

@WSU_Albion:  Classy Leeds fans in the coach park with a return to the 1970s homophobia. Dirty Leeds returned on the pitch. 3 points to #bhafc

@Morty77: Same at the queue for the station

@leo4goldenboot: Leeds fans classy as ever outside 👏 #BHAFC #LUFC

@Liam8932: Fucking leeds fan in the home end, stewards do nothing #bhafc

@bhafclad: disgusting what i saw from a number of leeds fans today, literally have no class, hope they are caught on cctv

@foreverayellow: Leeds fans kicking off as soon as something doesn’t go their way, pathetic

@seagullsontheroad: grim to see that Leeds supporters were spitting at other people

In relation to these incidents, Sussex Police have stated the following to one social media user: “Hi, We’d like more information so we can look into this.

The game itself saw Brighton set a new club record of nine consecutive top-flight matches without defeat as they condemned visitors Leeds to a first loss of the season.

Pascal Gross’ winner came after the hosts had messed up several golden opportunities to take the lead.

Adam Webster headed wide from an excellent position in the first half, and Solly March twice shot straight at Leeds keeper Illan Meslier after cutting on to his left foot from the right flank.

A lovely through ball from Gross sent March clear in the early stages of the second half, but again saw an effort stopped by Meslier.

Leeds’ best opportunity fell to second-half substitute Luis Sinisterra, who couldn’t to hit the target after Brighton’s Pervis Estupinan sent his clearance towards the far post while attempting to dispossess Brenden Aaronson.

The win lifts Brighton up to second in the Premier League after four games, while Leeds drop to fifth.

Brighton goalscorer Pascal Gross, speaking to PLP: “We deserved to win. We played really well. Sometimes the last pass was missing, but I saw a good game and a good performance against a very good team.

“A goal is always big in the game. It comes down to small margins in the Premier League, so we’ll take the result today.

“I thought we were playing well and in the second half we were confident we would win the game.”

On Brighton’s fine start: “We’re just taking it game by game. It’s a good start, but we’re just focusing on the next game.”

Leeds manager Jesse Marsch, speaking to BBC Match of the Day: “First half not good, second half much better and a little bit unlucky not to get the lead. Brighton’s man-marking in the first half made things very difficult for us.

“I thought we pushed the game in the second half. I was much more pleased than the first and we have to learn from this and understand what these games are like.

“There was no part of me that just because we beat Chelsea we were the finished product or would win every game. We’re going to have hiccups and Brighton are a good team – they make it difficult for their opponents. In the end, it wasn’t enough from us and a good three points from Brighton.”

On the referee’s performance: “I was frustrated today with the referee. Against Chelsea and Barnsley I didn’t say a word to the ref all game. If I see things from the referee that I don’t think are fair, there won’t be any other recourse from me than to display my feelings and tell the referee what I think. I did that today and got a yellow.

“We didn’t have our best day, but I don’t think the referee had his best day either.”

Brighton manager Graham Potter, speaking to BBC Match of the Day: “When the score’s only 1-0, we know how it is. The boys defend with responsibility and make it hard for the opponent regardless. Generally we defended the situations well and deserved the win.

“The mood is really positive. We have full respect for our opponents and of the competition. All we can do is remain humble and hard-working. We have to keep that going.”

On missing chances: “It’s just about getting in those positions more often, which we’ve done quite well. It’s about being balanced as a team, creating chances and not conceding many. This season so far we’ve done that OK as well. It’s always about the balance of the team.”

On Pascal Gross: “He does pretty much everything in the team. He’s in the form of his life, I’d say. He’s a great guy to have and a very important member of the team.”
