Well Brendan clearly has a lot of confidence in the new owners! Writing in the Yapping Post, the former Leeds United great says of 19 goal Becchio, "Personally, I think he will probably be gone before the end of January".
Ouch. Not that Ormsby's views matter of course. He is a nobody. Like Phil Hay who makes a strong case for Old Big Gob staying in the Last Post. It's the other hay we all need to hear from. You know, the guy on the Board, senior position in GFH Capital, the new owners of the club.
The silence of the new owners is deafening. With the fans getting increasingly restless - well those that bother to turn up - and rumours every other day of the club's leading scorer departing, you might have expected a statement or two from the owners. Something to calm the nerves perhaps. Some sort of statement of intent maybe. A commitment to do everything possible to ensure Leeds finish in the top six possibly. Or, at the very least, a pledge to hold on to Becchio until the season's end.
But no. Silence.
Bloody hell, with Hay in the Post talking of "wielding the axe", you would have thought his sound alike of Sharia Law Capital might have got a little bit excited. But no. Nothing.
No word from the Board at all.
You begin to wonder if there is anyone in the Leeds United Board Room besides Chairman Bates!
