Leeds United: Fans split over TV schedule dealing them Boxing Day and New Year’s Day games

The festive fixtures have just been announced and some fans will be in the process of telling their families they won’t be around for Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. For Leeds, TV coverage has meant that both their home game against Preston on Boxing Day and their trip to West Brom on New Year’s Day will kick off at 5.15pm.

At least those games haven’t moved days and the late kick-offs will give fans enough time to recover from the day before. In this period last season Leeds showed signs of the disappointing end to the season that was coming their way, with their 3-2 win over Blackburn on Boxing Day followed by a defeat on December 29 to Hull City and then a 4-2 loss at Nottingham Forest.

When the fixture changes were announced on Wednesday morning, Whites’ fans were split on whether they’re pleased with the games and their kick-off times. Some were glad of the late kick-off, so they have chance to get back to the festivities, while others weren’t so keen about having to head to the game straight after Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve.

Here’s some reaction from fans pleased by the TV scheduling:

But some weren’t happy with the festive calendar:

Leeds fans, what do you think of your club’s festive fixtures?
