Leeds United are hosting a film crew behind the scenes, with a view to producing a documentary similar to the recent Netflix hit ‘Sunderland Till I Die’.
Journalist Phil Hay discussed the possibility of a programme airing next year on a recent podcast, with Leeds fans quick to offer their views on a possible show.
The Netflix series on Sunderland made compulsive viewing for all the wrong reasons. It charted their demise last season, from fallen Premier League giant to League One side. Players, such as Jack Rodwell, Lewis Grabban and Darron Gibson, did not come out of it well and it led to terrace chants from opposition fans.
News that Leeds are now gearing up for a similar show has received a lukewarm reception from Whites’ fans. They’re concerned that some of the more salacious aspects of their season, such as Dan James not signing or the spygate incident, might not come across well on camera.
There’s also a feeling that if they fail to be promoted this season, it could result in the same taunts as Sunderland received which would make for uncomfortable times at Elland Road next season.
Here’s a selection of their responses.
looking forward to adding [Play-Off Final Crying Man] to my IMDB

It’ll be like watching your favourite super heroes but knowing they all die at the end…

Will it show covert footage of all our opponents training grounds?

Christ, dangerous game. The malice and inevitable tears if we lose to Preston at Wembley isn't something I want to re-live in HD ????

Surely it’ll be a distraction at a time when we could really do without it

This has got laughing stock written all over it. Still, jump on the bandwagon for the extra revenue. It’s not like we need any help to get more media attention though lol
