The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thur 7th May) - All remaining Premiership & Championship games to be televised

Post by Ellandback1 »



Good Morning. It's Thursday 7th May, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...


All remaining 200 games from top two tiers will be televised

According to The Times, football fans will be able to watch almost all of the remaining 200 matches in the top-two tiers of English football should both divisions agree to complete their remaining fixtures. Scheduling officials for Sky, BT Sports, Amazon and Ifollow are aiming to show three and four Championship and Premier League matches daily at staggered kick-off times. The aim is to have 'project restart' recommence early in June. Premier League Clubs are meeting on Monday 11th to discuss these plans.





Championship clubs call for £20m budget

The Sun are reporting that a splinter group, made up of ‘10 perennial Championship teams’ took part in a video conference call last Friday to discuss a £20million total wage budget. Leeds United, West Brom, Nottingham Forest, Fulham and Brentford are among those excluded from the meeting.

According to the daily tabloid, the 20m budget would be free to spend that how and when they like as long as they do not exceed the limit. As well as introducing a salary cap, the ten clubs involved discussed the financial implications the coronavirus is having on their clubs, and discussions a breakaway group. A source told SunSport:
A salary cap will suit some of the smaller teams in the Championship. They will be the ones who generally feel they have reached the ceiling of their realistic expectations — teams who don’t tend to be pushing for promotion to the Premier League.

Other more notable teams wouldn’t want to sign up to a salary cap because they want to invest in trying to reach the top division. As a result they were not included in the talks last Friday and won’t be either going forwards.




Should you be allowed to boo your team after a dire performance?

Many die hard Leeds fans have questioned their loyalties over the last fifteen years. We've seen greedy owners trying to bleed the club dry, insolvency problems and regelation to the third tier of English football. Yet, we are still here today, in the sun, rain, and snow to support the boys in White!

Performances on the field over the last decade and a half have been lets say inconsistent. Have you ever booed the team or selected player? How have others reacted to fans booing? Should you be allowed to? You've paid your money!!! Is booing your own team a sign of treason?

To boo or not to boo? That is the question.

While it's never arisen in relation to Leeds, I must admit that I have booed my team(s) in the past, but when I think about it, I probably shouldn't have.

I know that sport is different to other professions in the sense of spectator involvement, but I wouldn't like to get booed if I performed poorly at work, which I have done. I realise that on the other side of things I don't get cheered either. On the other hand if I do a really good job, I will get public kudos for it, but if I perform poorly my manager will speak to me privately - which is as it should be.

So supporting a team does involve high passion, but maybe it's better to simply not applaud, than to boo.

Having said that, that applies to my team and their performance.

Some sportspersons behaviour (as opposed to performance on the field) does warrant booing in my opinion. For example, I booed Harry Kewell when he played in Australia and if hew were still playing I would do so again. I'd boo him if he appeared as the opposing team's coach or in any other capacity at a sporting event.

I'd probably boo Roy Keane due to his attempt to seriously injure Alfie Haaland and Kevin Muscat was always a complete thug on the field, so he deserves a big boo.

I'm not inclined to boo my teams, but I certainly believe fans have every right to do so if they think it warrants it. I think the only time I would consider it is if the effort really isn't there from a club or player.

If my frustration gets the better of me I have been caught up in a good 'Bronx cheer' once in a while.

I have never booed my own side and never will.

The only thing I can't forgive from one of my own players is lack of effort. If some player is not giving it his all, the coaches and the other players are much more effective at changing that behavior than a chorus of boos. I won't cheer for such a player, but I won't boo him.

And he’s still in prison for fraud, taking money from a football academy he set up not for fraudulently imitating a footballer.
