GFH Capital Exercise Middle East Muscle To Boost Leeds At Last



So all those who have scoffed must now eat their words. GFH Capital mean business at Leeds. How else can you explain the rumoured capture of top international striker Aruna Dindane? The Ivory Coast striker has 67 caps and for the last three years has been tearing up defences in that hotbed of football, the Middle East.

The former Pompey man is a free agent after being released by Qatar-based Al-Sailiya Sport Club and has played for three different Qatar based clubs in three years after failing to earn a contract at Pompey, or anywhere else in the Premiership or English Football League for that matter.

It is hard to believe that GFH Capital have not been heavily involved in securing this signature. They are, after all, big in the region and are committed to Islamic investments. And this must surely be regarded as a  major coup for Warnock and the Leeds Board because, on his day, Dindane is electric - just ask the Qatar superstars  who have been marking him for the last three seasons!

Will Dindane find it hard to adjust from 100 plus degree football played at near walking pace to the 100mph Championship in the middle of the British winter? Why should he? This is the quality that Warnock was talking of adding to the squad!

And with the addition of another striker, GFH Capital can cash in on Becchio. A Mohamed Mouse outfit? No way! Like Bates, they are in this for what they can take!

  1. For once i actually agree with you. This whole prospect of signing Dindane is a joke, and that's coming from a Leeds fan.

  4. Dindane is a quality player and will shoot us to automatic promotion.

    I am starting to believe in Warnock a lot more now and believe that he is the MAN afterall.

    Anyone for a game of tennis?

  8. Marshymarsh,
    Your in debt up to your eye balls and by the end of next season, you will be on your way back down. I do get the bit about Dindane, he hardly gets the mouth watering but Becchio didn't when he came. I guess if GFH don't show that they mean buisness. Then we the fans will carry on showing them were they can go and thats to a empty ground.
    PS, Ask your mum if she'll drop my boxers back off, she really loves abit of white.

  9. another 32 yr old has been just right for Warnock. Where was he after Barnsley game, till Tuesday night not seen at Thorpe Arch training ground, Plus I reckon Tate told him what he thought of him, thats why he hasnt figured in any games recently, and subbed in his last game.Thats why he has returned to his parent club early. Question is also how much or how many shares does Bates still own I reckon 50%. Warnock doesnt give two _ _ _ ks about Leeds.

  12. Dindane? What a joke outfit we are becoming; but what troubles me is that after an eternity of slagging this website, we are now all united, with the exception of course of our Colin who is doing a great job! Who are we Leeds fans going to abuse going forward, what about a United front against the man taking us for a ride, Mr Warnock

  13. 100% agreement from lifelong Leeds supporter. Any Leeds fan who offers HF a slagging on here about this post, is in my eyes a supporter of this transfer and therefore needs a swift tap around the head with a piece of 4x2 to restore some clarity & vision in the head !

  14. In fairness! Gfh capital did say dont judge us on what we do in january! Yet all i see are leeds fans constantly F*****G moaning! They've just spent £54 mill too buy us! It'll take time to bring in some more exspensive players! You have too look realistically we are not a Man city so these are the sort of players we must get in the short term! Not ideal but true. Just be thankful bates isn't still in charge and think of your cup more full!!! MOT!!!!!

  18. I have read your blogs for some time now....Do you write about any other teams apart from Leeds? ..Do you write about your own team? I don't understand the reason for this blog.......you are the Collin Murray of football blogs......Now on your most recent dibble......Dindane can do a job in this division, he is a decent international striker and premiership clubs are sniffing around him so it will be a good signing. You'll see and no doubt give your opinion about it Mr closet Leeds fan

    1. 15.10,,, Please read my comment 14.47,, If Premier league clubs were "sniffing around" then he would have gone there !
      He played in the sand for 3 yrs and for 3 different clubs that no one in this country has ever heard of.
      Pass the timber ! !

  19. Thing is mr warnock you got alan tate loan you brought in luke varney adam durry and lee peltier and only lee plays week in week out and were still not sure hes any good. Not alot creative spark in these guys is there, so this guy as real pace at 32 not too sure you might as well have keeped andy gray! come on we need quality ie morrison cambell sharp etc not cheap rubbish that want to pick up another wage at elland rd!! ship the rubbish out and have a 18 man squad not a 25+

  20. The key words here are islamic investments. I've got a feeling this lot will be worse than Bates, gotta feeling they'll strip as much out of the club as they possibly can and pump it back into islamic endeavours. It wouldn't surprise me if they're selling LUFC hijabs in the club shop next! I for one will never attend a game at ER again while this lot are ruling the roost.

  21. lets c wot dindane can do before slaggin him off eh?? i c it that we have swapped andy gray for aruna dindane-doesnt sound that bad

  22. Well said mate

  23. apparently Colin is going to play him at "Left Back" !!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Just when you think things cant get any worse.

    I think in the case of Leeds..no news would be good news.
    Every time there is news, it is bad news.

    Maybe GFH are trying to lull all the premiership teams into a false sense of security by making out they have NO cash as a PLOY
    and then will start spending big.....or maybe not!

    Hey HF maybe you could write another 50 articles in advance...as we can all predict what the headlines are going to be

    Becchio going
    warnock going
    Offers job to adkins - turns it down
    Crowds drop to 15k
    lose 5 matches on the trot
    heavy defeat to cardiff
    leeds buy 68 year old goalie
    GFH sell Leeds to Al Quaeda

  33. Well said , hard to feel optimistic these days we seem to have swapped one bag of shite owner for another or are they one and the same ! Who knows and it seems less and less people are caring despite your efforts HF to rally the troops ps how many camels for Dindane?

  34. I agree totally, all of us Leeds supporters are having the piss taken out of us big time. Prem football is worthy 80 million next year so why the hell is there no proper investment, and the silence from ER is deafening. I for one have followed Leeds for over 40 years and I've never felt as low about our club, every season it's the same shite being puked up by the people in charge. GFH need to make a real statement of intent before ER crowds fall below 15,000 and trust me they will unless some thread of ambition is shown by the owners. Dinedan is f#cking shite and why the hell are we concentrating on forwards when it's blindingly clear that it's in midfield that we desperately need to strengthen. Warnock's not the man for Leeds and I for one never thought he was....................................

  36. Of those who think Dindane might turn into a Diouf or a Bechio, it's way past your bedtime. Grow up! He was never any good and that won't change at his ripe old age. As for the new owners stating don't judge us in Jan. if you sell Bechio and replace him with Dindane what else can we do. Its as if Bates never left. Oh, he hasn't.

  48. I think lufc fans and I mean long standing fans know how it feels to be disappointed, but when you've seen them go through the mill as I have and still stood by them we should give the gfh a chance. It's been said that they spent 54 million to get us away from Bates and although he's taken a back seat we as a group should stand by gfh and give them to the end of the season ans see what happens then. Then we can decide whether they should go.
