Jeff Stelling causes chaos on Sky Sports with question on Leeds United v Brentford
Jeff Stelling has caused chaos live on Sky Sports when dropping a question on Leeds United and Brentford ahead of their meeting tomorrow.
Kris Boyd backed the Whites to finish higher in the Premier League season than their next opponents, despite being one of their biggest critics so far.
That led to both Stelling and Clinton Morrison destroying him for backtracking on earlier comments he had made about Leeds.
Speaking on Sky Sports Soccer Saturday, Stelling caused chaos when posing the question on the two sides that will meet at Elland Road tomorrow.
“Let’s talk about Leeds against Brentford, shall we?” he said. “Leeds 15 points, Brentford 16 points – Kris Boyd, who finishes higher? Leeds or Brentford?”
Boyd responded and backed the Whites to be safe come to the end of the Premier League season in 2022.

“Leeds,” he said. “I said it a few weeks ago, I don’t think they’re as bad as where they, they’re getting players back – Bamford and Ayling.
“I think Brentford got off to a great start, but they are on the slide.”
Stelling responded instantly to that claim: “Bit of back-pedalling there.”
Then it was down to Morrison to finish Boyd off after his bold criticism earlier in the season towards to the Whites.
“Biggest backtracker,” he moaned. “If you say something, you stick to it but you’ve just backtracked live on national TV.”
Here we go.
The Sky studio ascended into chaos and we have to say that we loved watching it as most defended Leeds for once rather than getting on their backs.
Boyd is right in the sense that with Luke Ayling and Patrick Bamford back available, the Whites will be much stronger and start to pick up points.
Brentford had a good start, no-one can deny that, but they have started to struggle and looked poor against Spurs on Thursday evening (2nd December).
Another three points tomorrow for Leeds and normality will be resumed with a gap created to the bottom three and we will jump ahead of the likes of the Bees.
Elland Road will be rocking just as the Sky studios were today, and that will hopefully roar the squad on to another huge three points.
