Bridges was left fuming by the result, and took a dig at Gerrard and Co after the game.
She blasted on Twitter: “Aston Villa are p*****s.”
Bridges was also left frustrated by the way in which Villa’s players went to ground when they were fouled.
She retweeted a post from a fellow Leeds fan that said: “[They] Spend more time laid on the grass than playing football.”

The basic skills of boxing are:
- Techniques for punching
- Techniques for protecting yourself
- The body moves
There are seven kinds of punches: Left Hook, Right Hook, Uppercut, Cross, Straight, Overhand and Underhand. Each punch has its own technique. Some punches require greater strength than others. For example, an uppercut is a powerful punch. A straight punch on the other side requires less power, but is more effective than other punches.
There are also many combinations. These are combinations of punches which work together to achieve a goal. A combination can contain multiple parts. An example of this is a left hook, followed by a right crossing. This will damage the opponent’s jaw.
A boxer uses his body to protect himself against attacks. He uses his arms, legs, elbows, knees, knees, and feet to do this.
Boxers must use their legs to defend themselves against kicks. When he’s hit, he raises his right leg and runs away from the attacker. To avoid being kicked in the side, he bends down if the attacker attacks from the front. He will block the kick with his foot if the attack is coming from behind.
Elbow strikes are very powerful because they inflict great pain. An elbow strike can be delivered directly or indirectly. Directly means that you hit your opponent with your forearm while indirectly means that you hit him with another part of your arm.
Boxers use both their hands and arms to prevent incoming blows. To do so, they raise their fists above their head and move them towards the direction of the attack. The attacker’s fist is then in their face.
When receiving a blow to the stomach, abdomen or chest, a boxer should bend his knees to absorb the impact. Defense purposes are often served by knee strikes.
Boxers should respond to being attacked by their opponent by standing back and delivering counter-attacks. This allows him to put distance between himself, his opponent, and the ring. Additionally, boxers need to maintain their balance when they counter-attack.
To box effectively, a boxer must establish a stance. How he defends his self will depend on how he stances. It determines his position and the direction he will face. Boxers can take many different stances. Here are the most commonly used ones:
- Low stance
- High stance
- Southpaw stance
- Western stance
The Body Movement

A boxer will rotate his arm when he is throwing a punch. The rotation is done at different speeds depending on the type of punch.
The effectiveness of a combination depends on the timing of each individual punch. A good combination starts with a strong punch and ends with a weak one.
