The hydration system took a life of it’s own and started to create a rather large puddle between the dugouts, which began to infringe upon the pitch. In traditional British manner, everybody stood around not quite sure of what to do.
Bloody hell that Leeds sprinkler malfunction is funny!

With the Whites already 1-0 down to the visitors and looking unlikely to come back into the game, many on Twitter begun to cry foul play;
Leeds genius tactics, losing at half time, let’s flood the pitch

After some dillying, dallying and well…paddling, the situation was eventually brought under control and the match continued. Unfortunately enough for Leeds, had their sprinkler been under a more biblical influence, it could have saved them from a 4-0 drubbing!
Leeds should have said that they couldn’t fix that sprinkler!

Sprinkler system had the right idea when it tried to get the game abandoned #LUFC
