I mean, you can’t really blame them can you?
A chance to show ‘Bielsa-ball’ to the nation, a clash between two teams that will probably both be vying for either a top 6 or even a top 2 spot, what’s there not to love? Well according to the Leeds United fanbase, there’s plenty not to love.
Sky Sports announced yesterday that our upcoming game against Fulham at Elland Road is set to be broadcast on TV, however there won’t be a change to the kick-off time or date.
Leeds fans have a bit of a history when it comes to Sky Sports, having complained about them before when kick-off times change, occasionally taking it to some extreme lengths and this time was no exception. With the end of the season on the horizon, a time where Leeds have become famous for ‘falling apart again’, the fans seemed to believe that Sky’s desire to show them on TV more regularly was some sort of conspiracy theory to make sure that they documented their downfall better than ‘Take Them Home’ did last year.
Sky desperately trying to capture our collapse again

I really wish they’d show us less 😂 less stressful when I I can’t watch or fond a stream

Main event instead of just red button so we’ll be treated to replays of all the ref’s shocking errors. Yay.

Sky sports leeds returns just when we’re on a bad run. Yet when we were on form they didn’t want to broadcast us 🤔 get the impression they like rubbing it in when we lose

Will Leeds get a better chance at promotion than this?
Although for all the reasons listed earlier, I think that’s more the reason they’re doing it rather than to watch Leeds potentially crumble again.
