A lot of Leeds fans have been having their say on the fact that two more of the club’s games have been chosen for Sky coverage. The fixtures against Middlesbrough at Elland Road and Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough have been moved so they can be aired on TV, with both games now being shown on a Friday night, 7:45 pm kick off.
Two more Sky games for Leeds – Middlesbrough at home is now Friday, August 31 (7.45pm). Sheff Wed away is now Friday, September 28 (7.45pm). #lufc

This news is sure to please fans. Those who struggle to get tickets on a weekly basis will be delighted by the fact that they can tune in to watch their side play on TV. However, the Sheffield Wednesday game being moved to a Friday night is a decision that is being laughed at by a lot of The Whites, as the last time they travelled to Hillsborough on a Friday night there was plenty of trouble with the police having their work cut out.
Whilst the news that Leeds will be on TV is pleasing for the fans, a lot of them will be wondering if they want to watch their side given the fact that Marcelo Bielsa has only seen two new players come into his squad. The current squad is looking extremely thin and it wouldn’t be much of a surprise to see the club struggle in mid-table again this season, despite the fact many fans thought they’d be challenging at the right end of table with Bielsa in charge this season.
