How embarrasing

Westy added 16:25 - Jan 11
I see that all the representations made at the AGM by The Supporters' Club and others including myself about midday being an inappropriate kick-off time came to naught !

The two Sheffield clubs are playing each other tomorrow night (Friday) with a 7.45 pm kick-off.

Yup,best way to kill off a game,shove it on at midday on a Sunday.

Another chance to humiliate ourselves in front of the nation

I see Leeds are on another 4 times!!! They should rename the channel Sky Sports Leeds.

If norwich somehow beat both chelsea and newcastle then does that mean the game is changed again

TimmyH added 17:04 - Jan 11
Oh dear! on Sky...we all know what that means, a poor display and a point at most.

Another death by TV

Very imaginative aren't they SKY.

Rensham added 20:09 - Jan 11
How can we accommodate 3000 Leeds fans but not the Norwich fans on a Saturday at 3pm??

And guess which shirts we’ll be wearing

PJewellisaGod added 22:54 - Jan 11
Sure the Norwich fans will have a chant about our shirts by that point, just to rub the humiliation in.

Fozrat70 added 00:08 - Jan 12
I am pretty sure every time we have played the scum at there ground we have played in our home kit I see it being no different this time azuremerlangus new sponsor doesn't mean we have to wear the red one.

Rensham added 03:09 - Jan 12
Norwich away in a red shirt on sky without a midfield or central defence. What could go wrong?

Popeadrian64 added 07:57 - Jan 12
Skip73... I totally agree, I am confused over Skys obsession with Leeds and it does give them a massive unfair financial boost.

Northstandveteran added 08:25 - Jan 12
Perhaps the reason might be that they play attacking football in front of 30,000 plus fans that neutrals may enjoy watching?
Who these days apart from Norwich and Ipswich fans are interested in the East Anglian Derbyshire?
Two very average teams playing very average football

Hi Adrian

Thanks for your email about Sky's coverage of Leeds United.

Our contract as agreed with the Football League is that each team must be selected at least once at home. I understand your frustration that Leeds United has been chosen several times, whilst other teams have not yet featured.

There are a variety of reasons why some teams have more matches televised than others, including the logistics of being able to play at the time chosen by Sky, and as the season progresses, being in a fixture that is likely to have an influence on the playoff places.

We can assure you that each team will feature at least once this coming season. You can follow every Championship team in our Football League support programming on Sky Sports, and also online on Sky

I have provided a link to our Live on Sky section of Sky Sports:

The Club are making so many poor decisions I am becoming paranoid. As the blue shirts won't bear the hideous Magical Vegas logo until next Season what is the likelihood that when we play Naaaaarich at Carrow Road we will be playing in red that will have it on in front of the Sky camaras - high I suggest. The Club have already sold it's soul with this. If we play in red and I strongly expect that tradition will be broken and we will, it will he the last straw. Rosie Richardson will become another Delia. I hope I am wrong.
