Leeds United: broadcast deal extended – GET IN!

Adam Pope, ex-Leeds striker Noel Whelan and Katherine Hannah are the trio tasked with bringing the game alive with their commentary and if you’ve listened to them, you’ll know that is what happens. Popey plays the straight man to the comedic colour that is Noel Whelan whilst poor Katherine is like the mother figure trying to keep her boys in line. Combine them all together and it really is a great commentary and one, if it hadn’t been extended, that Leeds fans would have missed.

But extended it has been, much to the delight of many. Leeds United Chief Executive Ben Mansford reported the club’s delight saying: “We are delighted to have extended our broadcast partnership with Radio Leeds and have them on board once again for the season ahead.

“Whether it’s match commentary or their coverage of the Club throughout the week, Radio Leeds can provide an important connection between the Club and its supporters. We look forward to a positive working relationship over the next 12 months.”

This call from Mansford is also taken up by others over on Twitter, starting with one of the three themselves, Katherine Hannah.

Adam Pope himself also got in with his thanks for the messages he had received from fans.

Noel Whelan’s response to the news that the deal had been extended was, well, very Noel Whelan.

The fans themselves are also happy at the extended deal to have Radio Leeds broadcast live commentary, build up and analysis.

In all seriousness, it is great that BBC Radio Leeds are back next season giving the build up, match coverage and after-match analysis on United games.

As Noel would say, GET IN!!!!!!
