A lot of Leeds United fans have responded to a tweet from Graham Smyth – that includes a piece relaying quotes made by Stoke City’s chief executive.

Tony Scholes, speaking to the Stoke Sentinel, believes that clubs like Leeds United are not fairly rewarded for the number of times they appear on TV.

Against which team did Leeds record their biggest home win?

Scholes claims that Leeds only get about £3m a year in TV money while Norwich City will get £100m.

The Stoke man then goes on to claim that clubs are ‘now desperate to attack other clubs’ because of the financial disparity between the Premier League and the Championship.

Do you agree with what Scholes said?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This has drawn a reaction from these Leeds fans – with some in agreement with Scholes.

Other Whites supporters, though, feel that he is just whinging for no reason.

What do we think?

It does seem ridiculous that a club like Leeds who regularly boast attendances of 35,000+ receive a lot less money from the TV companies than the likes of Bournemouth – who achieve attendances of just over 10,000 and last season had just ten games shown live on TV.

That is why, to us, it is so important that the Whites achieve promotion.
