Shame on the FA: West Brom fans fuming after Jeanvier not charged for spitting

Supporters of West Brom have been left absolutely fuming with the FA’s decision not to charge Brentford man Julian Jeanvier for spitting in their direction.

The incident occurred during the club’s 1-0 win over the Bees earlier this month but upon reviewing footage, the FA have decided no punishment was needed for Jeanvier.

Baggies supporters are incensed and feel that he should have been charged, claiming that he didn’t just spit in their general direction but it was actually at them.

Many fans have slammed the FA’s decision arguing that had it been the other way around then they’d have been given banning orders.

There have been a number of fan and player incidents lately with Jack Grealish being punched during the Second City derby in March. Similarly, a fan ran on the pitch during Arsenal’s win over Manchester United recently.

They were more extreme cases but it seems strange not to charge the Brentford defender for a situation that has clearly made the Hawthorns faithful incredibly angry.

What makes the FA’s decision not to charge him even more bizarre is the fact that the Frenchman has actually admitted to spitting towards them.

Brentford conducted their own investigation and reminded the player that his behaviour was unacceptable.

Here’s the reaction from Twitter.
