Morning Leeds-in for 24 February: Is “Ask Leeds” just a PR stunt?

So, is this the “Q&A” that we were promised?

So apparently the club is hosting a “Q&A” live on the Leeds App at 12:30 PM this Monday. Per the club’s official website:

Supporters will get the opportunity to ask Leeds United’s highest ranking officials their questions this Monday (22nd February) as Andrea Radrizzani, Angus Kinnear and Victor Orta take part in a live Q&A session, which will be streamed exclusively on the LUTV App.

We want supporters to put their questions forward to us this weekend by tweeting them along with the hashtag #ASKLUFC.

Submissions will then be selected at random and put to the men at the top of the Leeds United hierarchy during the event which will take place at 12.30pm and will only be available on the LUTV App, which was launched this summer.

We’ll see just how “random” these questions will end up being, and what this actually entails. I don’t have a lot of faith in things like this and I think this will end up being a “everything is wonderful, duckies and bunnies!” session with no meat on it. All of these men have gotten where they are at by being able to talk to the press and make things sound great, even when things aren’t great.

Don’t hold your breath.

On to the links.
