'Must have been Sky' – Phil Hay delivers update from Stoke clash that will infuriate Leeds fans
Leeds United took a giant step towards the Premier League with a 5-0 win over Stoke City at Elland Road.
The game was played behind closed doors with Leeds fans having to watch on Sky Sports and plenty of fans were left bewildered when they kept hearing the “Leeds are falling apart” song.
It was played almost on a loop and came on when Leeds were awarded a penalty and after Mateusz Klich had scored at the end of the first half.
One fan asked whether it was being piped in the stadium by Leeds at Elland Road but The Athletic journalist Phil Hay confirmed that it “wasn’t in the stadium”.
“It must have been Sky,” he added, saying that he wasn’t watching the TV coverage.
wasn't in the stadium. Must have been Sky (we're not watching here so I can't say)

Sky are falling apart
So, that confirms it. Plenty of fans were spitting feathers on Twitter during the game as the song kept getting played.
Unless Sky had forgotten, this was supposed to be a home game at Elland Road.
Someone who works at Sky obviously thinks it’s funny but there are plenty of Leeds fans who don’t agree.
We can’t really think of any other team that Sky would treat like this. Admittedly, the Leeds fans have their very own anti-Sky song that routinely gets blasted out at Elland Road but does this mean they retaliate against the whole Leeds fanbase?
Ironically, Leeds put in their best performance for a long time and we can sleep happy tonight knowing that we’re top of the league and on an almost certain collision course with the Premier League.
We still think that Leeds deserve an explanation and an apology from Sky.
