'Wow', 'This is in bad taste' – Some Leeds fans react to Friday update from club

We were willing to give Leeds the benefit of the doubt last time but it looks like it’s business as usual for the club, despite what’s going on in the wider world.

On Tuesday night, the club sent a tweet out reminding fans to renew their season tickets by March 27.

That met with a barrage of reactions from Leeds fans who said that it was insensitive from the club and that they should have held back before making financial demands on supporters who will have huge concerns of their own at the moment.

Now, they’ve sent out another tweet asking for existing members to renew their “My Leeds” memberships for the 20/21 season. The prices are £50 for adults and £30 for children.

Now, we understand that Leeds is a business and one that is facing losing a huge chunk of revenue over the next couple of months and possibly beyond.

And some fans have recognised this.

Bit, for others, the timing is awful and we think the message itself could have been more sensitive if it needed to go out now at all.

Leeds could explain the business realities behind the decision to ask for this now and possibly offer a discount.

Some Leeds fans will be beside themselves with worry about money at the moment and some will already have lost their jobs.

Here are the reactions from Leeds fans to the tweet…

Not all Leeds fans reacted badly to the tweet with one saying, “People might be losing their jobs at LUFC too, though. It’s a good way of getting cashflow in. No-one is holding a gun to your head either.”

And one fan was more concerned about Leeds not accepting new members because of the huge demand in the 19/20 season.

However, the majority of fans aren’t happy with the timing of the tweet.
