Late yesterday evening, the Football Association finally confirmed the findings of their Independent Regulatory Commission investigation into the Birmingham City fan who came on the punch and threw a limp punch at Aston Villa player Jack Grealish during the Birmingham derby.

Understandably Villa fans weren’t impressed with the potential ramifications the incident could’ve meant had the supposed fan been armed, and fans across football also weren’t impressed with such a paltry fee given the nature of the incident and the time it’s taken for the investigation to come to a conclusion.

It’s no surprise, therefore, to point out that some Leeds fans were apoplectic at the £42,500 fine for their breaches when it came to stewarding and safety, and fans naturally linked it to the £200,000 fine we received for standing on public land and not actually committing an offence other than in the minds of rent-a-gobs in the game.

It must be said though, this was the FA, not the EFL and plenty of fans seem to have conflated the two.
