    Leeds have said they will contact season and ticket holders soon about refunds or club credit as remaining games if played will be behind closed doors.
    Access to watch the games on TV will do for me, could do with the money, but I've no interest in harming the club financially.

    I'm a bit split on this. On the one hand, I'm not really that fussed about a refund. I'm not desperate for it and I'd rather my club was financially stable and all the staff were paid.

    On the other hand. I'm not comfortable with fans, many of who are very low paid, losing hundreds of pounds so that we can carry on paying footballers with wages run into the millions. That's not really a Leeds United problem though, it's a wider football problem.

    A free shirt next season would be a nice gesture. If we get a cash refund mine will probably be spent on a local non league club.

    How it reads to me is if you are desperate, they will give you a refund, but prefer to give you club credit

    This is how I see it...

    Charge each ST holder £10 per game to have access to watch the remaining 9 games live on LUTV (should they be played). That's £90 in total and then deduct that from any refund or credit which remains. It's not entirely fair as it would mean some households paying more than once to watch the same stream and also there would be games shown live on Sky so some would be paying twice there as well. For me personally that would be £180 to watch streams of games which would normally only cost me £5 per game (using VPN) so I'd want the remainder of the value of my ST for this season and next credited to the future. It's unfair to expect supporters to just take it on the chin financially if we can't attend due to Covid-19.

    In other news last weekend the club tried to do something for hospitality ST holders by inviting us to a Zoom meeting on Saturday evening. To be honest wasn't going to bother but then just happened to be having a beer 5 mins before it started so decided to give it a whirl. Turned out to be an enjoyable couple of hours, there was Tony Dorigo, Jermaine Beckford, John Hendrie, Andy Hughes and then half way through Victor Ortar and Liam Cooper joined and everyone gave great insight into what's been happening as well as sharing a good few anecdotes from their time as players at the club.

    This is the first time they've done something like this and I'm sure we'll see more of it in the near future. The club are obviously trying to find ways to give something to supporters whilst we're unable to attend matches or events at ER.

    Regarding Sky, decided not to accept the free Sports offer and cancelled completely as soon as all this started. Last week received a personalised offer to come back which seemed good value.

    Sky TV + boxsets + sport + movies + HD = £38 per month.

    Bit of a gamble with no football being played at the moment, but with plenty of other stuff to watch decided to go for it.
