@AdamAdammason16: Surprise surprise Salford on the tells absolute joke
@JoeThor76421841: Course you pick Salford 😂😂
@belly_eighty5: Dunno whats worse. Derbyshite getting air time or the fact salford are getting neville back handers all time
@maccaowl: Rooney cock fest againnnn
@TMHG91: @SkyFootball you are aware of the other two @EFL leagues: League one & League Two? Just wondered cos every game I see here is in the championship 👍
@payner771: No Swansea v reading? Or Hartlepool & Sutton games?
@stansmith1970: You literally suck Salford off
@CHughesSTFC: What are you doing to help Swindon Town? Transfer embargo is counter productive you should be doing everything possible to help the fans get rid of Lee Power. If you believe he actually wants to sign players you are the real fools!!! #FanPowerNotLeePower
@edward_w97: Umm, Cardiff City v Sutton United?
@thomasbooth42: Having derby vs Salford cos of the united links between Rooney and Neville money money money
@sufc00: Swansea away at 8pm cheers lads @EFL @SkySports
@EJTaylor99: NOBODY. IS. ARSED. ABOUT. SALFORD.
@EwanJM: If you follow a League One or Two club thats not Charlton or Sheff Weds, then this article isn’t for you.
@Rabcnesbit1982: @EFL instead of putting embargo’s on clubs that are really struggling, how about you come and offer support. If the ownership isn’t approved ASAP, you will see another Bury. Come on @efl & @fa sort yourselves out.
@JordanAnthonyP3: @EFL your an absolute joke , bet you didn’t put a transfer embargo on Sheffield Wednesday and Derby for them not paying players
@BennyHartnell: Of course Salford are…..
@bfctheo: Aha fuck off, Wednesday have had the most money from tv rights in the championship in recent years
@andrew_youngers: What about Cardiff v Sutton?
@EwoodLoyal: It’s no wonder football finances are uneven when favoured clubs are earning fees for live coverage while others hardly receive anything. I think the monies should be split evenly over each division.
@kierangallop00: For those complaining about the Derby v Salford selections, it’s not like there were an array of cracking ties drawn? Whether you like the nature of it or not, Derby v Salford has background to it, and the only game you could have picked over it was Sheff Wednesday v Huddersfield
@OrientLiam: derby salford over cardiff sutton???? wtf is this?
@JoeStephenson96: Championship at home to League Two should never be on TV unless its maybe Stoke v Port Vale. Absolute garbage
@parkinsonross: In the worlds least shocking news Salford get picked for TV in a shit tie. #fuckoff
@jackstringer19: Derby vs Salford, booooooooring. Orient vs QPR is a decent pick, would’ve gone for Stevenage vs Luton as the other one.
@chrwil82: Imagine my fucking surprise to see Sky Sports have picked the Salford game.
@tcbcafc: Corrupt bastards @SalfordCityFC
@Kabelwolf777: Salford…. shocking
@charlie1_evans: Salford yet again no surprise there sky 😂
@liamb0117: Wayne Rooney’s Derby vs Class of 92’s Salford City yet we’re supposed to believe these draws are random? 😂😂
@IBradders: Sky’s little darlings Salford City
@Alexexile: Salford again….what a surprise said nobody… 🙄
@cafc___: Course it’s Salford you money grabbing bastards 😂😂😂
@dextersdad10210: Will be interesting to see if Derby can cause an upset.
