Good Morning. It's Wednesday 10th June, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...
Price War between Sky and BT is great news for football fans
Sky Sports have launched a price war with BT Sport, ahead of the resumption of the football season. Fans will now be able to get a NOW TV Sky Sports Month Pass for £20 a month instead of £39.99. BT Sport’s Big Sport package has been slashed from £40 to £20 a month. Sky Sports have also trimmed the cost of its Sky TV and Sky Sports bundle from £48 to £39 a month.
There is a three month contract with all three offers. You would need to remember to cancel the package at the end of the three months before the prices revert back. The best offer seems to be BT Sport’s monthly pass. It's £25 a month, and only a monthly commitment.
January target available half price
Che Adams will be available for transfer this Summer, at the cut down price of £10m. The former Birmingham hitman netted 22 times for the Blues during their 18/19 season. This led to a big money move to St Mary's on the South coast (£15m) a year ago. Although Adams is yet to get off the score sheet in 22 appearances, he has been praised for his work rate and overall contributions.
Back in January, Leeds were desperate to sign the 23 year old, trying desperately to put packages together worth 20m, on the proviso that a deal would become permanent if they won promotion! After being turned away more times than Ell, Leeds switched their attention to an unfit Jean-Kevin Augustin.
Would Adams be a good addition to the Leeds squad in the Championship? Although different players, if Messrs Orta and Radrizzani can snap up Harry Wilson for 1£2m this Summer, what does that say about Adams current price tag at 10m, let alone the figure we were looking to pay just six months ago?
EGM conclusion delights Leeds fans
The Extraordinary General Meeting hosted by the EFL went as planned yesterday as the majority of clubs voted for;
- Final divisional placings will be determined on unweighted points per game (if required)
- Promotion and relegation should be retained
- Play-Offs will be played in all circumstances but will not be extended (beyond four teams)
Further to this, League One Clubs voted overwhelmingly to end their 2019/20 campaign. As a result, Coventry City have been confirmed as Champions with Rotherham bouncing back to the Championship next season. Wycombe Wanderers, Oxford United, Portsmouth and Fleetwood Town will contest the play offs.
As a precedent has now been set, it will make it a lot more difficult for teams at the foot of the Premier League to argue against relegation, which obviously is good news for Leeds, if for whatever reason the Championship cannot be finished!
