At the end of September last year, Leeds United visited the Valley to play Charlton in the EFL Championship.

In the end, it was an unremarkable enough game, despite the eventual Champions losing to newly promoted Charlton. 

But after the game, it soon became apparent that something more sinister had happened on the pitch.

After a long investigation by the FA, Kiko Casilla was eventually found guilty of a charge of racist abuse and received an 8 match ban and a 60,000 pound fine.

Leeds United, though, stuck by their player.

In this episode, we ask: did Leeds United get things wrong in their response to the Kiko Casilla incident?
