And so it begins, I just hope they leave the Burnley game alone. Say NO to 12.15 kick offs, they are sh-it.

Say YES to tv games....perfect for me as I never go to them and use non-televised games to get to.

That's not too selfish is it....!

Say NO to SKY TV, cnuts. I might even begin to start to consider perhaps even thinking about cancelling my 17 year long subscription to them, but I probably definitely won't. Sky should put everybody else but Leeds on TV and leave us alone.

With you BB and love them! It means I don't have to go to them and save dosh to go to others and therefore see them more....

Only game not being televised in the first 5 is Reading away and I'm going to that....

It's the same every smegging season. Sky,much like ourselves, are hoping this season will be the one so we get on the box early doors.

It's only a bit later on in the season they realise it's the same old same old, and we drop of the radar. Then it's just West Yorkshire police f.ecking us about as usual. 

Our first ever game in the championship was televised. Frazer Richardson curler against Derby if I remember correctly. Sky are just as big suckers for it as we are

Think Fraser scored with his left or am I getting mixed up with Danny Mills v Bolton?

Sky put us on so much because of our fan base to watch the games at their sponsors bequest to watch adverts etc, not because we've got the best team....

Yep, left foot. I was stood behind the goal in the Kop when it went in.

We also sang" we are top of the league,say we are top of the league" We wouldn't be singing that much in the coming years!

Would love the club to have a system in place where Overseas fan can pay to watch every home game via Internet broadcast..

Boro away now changed from Sat 26- Sun 27 September for Sky tv....I make that 5 of the first 10 competitive games live on tv?

Right result for me as I also have Reading and MK Dons away in that run!! That's without any home games included....

If we get a 2/3 more quality players I don't think it will affect the attendance too much as we'll regularly get 30k+ crowds....

 How much does Sky pay to show a single game of ours ?

Sorry if this is something i should know.

Going by memory it was something like £135k to the Home team and £50k to the away team + if the attendance was far lower than the average, the home side got some compensation.

Not sure what it will be for this season though.

Although these figures do not make it lucrative for LUFC it does help promote "Our Brand" around the world and keeps us in the general publics minds.

WE just need a successful LUFC to take advantage of this!

BB, It does not always help promote the brand around the world as not all countries have SKY as their Cable network providers. For instance in Australia you need to add Setanta Channel (and hope that company decide to show the championship and that match is Leeds united) to your Foxtel/Optus/Telstra cable plan. A lot of other places around the world has the same issue. Leeds united needs it own coverage of the games for their international fans.

Maybe we need to get Euro Channel (they show every Aston Villa game) or Setanta as our major sponsor so that we can push our brand around the world.

Thanks BB

 I was just comparing what we actually lost to a TV game if we were around 5000 down on ticket sales.

Good info mate.

Didn't realise we are on Sky next Saturday against Udders until just now....

Right result as I can see the next 7/10 games until New Year live or live on tv....

Am seeing what Cellino means about losing money though....with a Thursday game live on tv, we got less than 20k fans.

However, with a decent and successful team on the pitch we'd be getting 30k every home game whether it's midweek on Sky or not....

Our record this season live on Sky is a very disappointing 3 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses....

Our win ratio is only 9.4% recurring which isn't good. Evans has been in charge for 9 of those games so something needs to change....

Especially since reports are starting appear that Leeds United need 26 Thousand home attendance average for the season to make ends meet. Cellino is going to be in a hell rage if this is true....

it doesn’t have a significant negative effect on attendances. Average TV game: 23,331. Average non-TV: 23,136.

maybe its the 42 pounds a game, to watch sh1t football putting people off

our highest att this season is 27, 672 against Burnley, which surprisingly enough was shown on sky, the lowest was against Cardiff at just 19,917 you guessed it, wasnt on sky

Sheppey,

42 pounds is damn high...

Football displayed is terrible yet how much do you think it would cost if we produced decent football?

You still trying to tell me it wont effect the attendances versus a Saturday game ?

Yeah but I bet the Sky games were against bigger teams or local derbies etc where we would normally expect higher attendances if the game was not on Sky but with them being on Sky the attendances reduced back down to a similar level to matches against other teams

It is the late change that is more unacceptable 
The games should be sorted once the fixtures are released and agreed before the start of the season and each club should have max number of league games.

It is different for Cup games.

Football league blaming Leeds for the late announcement Leeds were told in December they would be showing this one on telly but due to Leeds challenging it through the legal system it could not be announced any earlier (according to BBC sport)

Been given our 36th live game on Sky away to Bumley on Saturday April 9th at lunchtime....

I predict we'll do ok in it. Bumley will have had their good run finished by then and we can't keep having a bad run....

If we lose this game, I'm giving up on a place in the playoffs....
