Angel MEL on 1 REV U/S

Just to put doubts of all to rest again. On airbus, if one Reverser is inop, The MEL clearly asks pilots to first bring BOTH TLs to idle at flare and then BOTH TLs to reverse. there is no ambiguity in this and it is clearly given in the MEL. Trust me, I have checked it personally on my last flight. Now, if someone DOES NOT follow procedures, why blame all and sundry.
Having said that, the official reports are still not released. So, we need to hold our horses and then comment on the systems.
Again for all the B types. If your TLs are at climb setting after landing with manual throtles, what will YOUR aircraft do? will it not accelerate? will the speed not increase?
