It pains me to say this but....


Recommended Posts

Just watching Leeds...

 

Ground full, replica shirts galore, proper shirt sponsor, advertising boards constantly rotating proper sponsors.

 

Forgetting the football and the fact this season they have hired a proper manager and spent some money- why have we chosen to go down such a different route re all the above?

Leeds really aren't the best example given their recent history in relation to their varied owners and the fact they are a bigger name than us anyway.

 

Look at Derby maybe and how they do things.

Ken Bates stopped the BBC Commentaries at Leeds United and brought it inhouse to the Leeds United digital team

I know they're a bigger name, but wouldn't that just mean they demand a bigger fee for sponsorship, ads etc. I'd it really so different that we are better off taking in hardly any revenue- or has Chansiri really stumped up cash for All the ads around the ground?

 

Does if show in the accounts anywhere what he's paid fo r all the D Taxi, Elev8 ads etc? Genuinely curious if anyone has looked close enough?

That was sort of my point.  Leeds fans have been through some reyt poo these past few years to arrive at what is currently being quoted as a comparison.

 

Did the chairman ever refund the money re. the playoff guarantee to st holders that season btw? Will have a look...

Me too re. our current corporate and sponsorship side.

 

Re. Leeds in general since Bates came in, and those after him, they really have had to put up with some pretty mad stuff continuously.

Stoke are making scum look like Real Madrid! They won’t challenge, scum! Liam Cooper and Berardi at centre half and Philips and Klich in the middle. It’s about as bad as it gets in the championship. There is plenty of movement from their attacking players tho.
