Leeds have announced another beamback at Elland Road.

Leeds announced yesterday that the match against Hull City will be shown live at Elland Road, making yet another away match that will be shown via beamback. It makes sense for fans, as the demand for away tickets far outstrips the supply. It’s also the next best thing to seeing the match at Hull, since you still get a bit of the atmosphere of going to the ground and being around a few thousand other Leeds fans. Not to mention, this is the most convenient way for most people in Leeds to see the match, dodgy streams notwithstanding.

Anyway, if you go to the beamback, Jack usually tries to make it to those, so if you see him, say hi.

On to the links.
