Has Leeds United's Board Conceded Promotion Already?

That's the only way the reduced season ticket prices make sense. If G.F.H Capital hold out realistic hopes of being in the Premiership next season, why would they reduce prices? I know Master Bates has been ripping off Leeds fans for years, but no sensible business model allows for a superior product to be sold at a knock down price. Maybe that's why the Arab bank is struggling and can't afford to invest in the squad!

It seems to me that the experiment with cheaper pricing failed on Tuesday night. Yes seven thousand was added to the gate as families were forced to forgo their nightly KFC Family Buckets so Dad could go to the game, but at a tenner a throw, that surely still resulted in lower gate receipts? But then, the Islamic bank may have made up the shortfall through the sale of alcohol and pork scratchings.

It all seems like very peculiar timing if there is any hope harboured of winning promotion. Maybe the Peterborough game was the final straw. Maybe Haigh and Patel reflected and thought, hang on, if we can't beat Peterborough at home, maybe we need a plan based upon us being in this division for a few more years to come. Lower the prices, then maybe the monkeys won't complain so much about the quality of the nuts!

Of course there may be another explanation. Maybe the Arab bank built on sand has cash flow problems, thus the urgent need to bring forward purchases, forgoing profit to help them survive? Milk the cow whilst you have it!

  1. maybe if you read the whole thing you will realise. 'Tickets will be available from 18th March and the prices stated below will remain in place until the 20th April, after which no further tickets will be sold until our divisional status for 2013/14 is confirmed'. Got nothing to write about your own team?

    1. He does have a point 'hammersfan'. They are simply rewarding the faithful and re-engaging with the fans - one of their main objectives since taking control

  3. Listen cockneyboy..that extra 7thousand,buying alcohol,crisps,sports merchandise,programmes,will have more than made up the cash.i think gfh are doing the sensible thing.they are at last listening to the fans.clubs dont make the money on ticket sales.if that was the csse,wigan would have gone bust years ago.all we need now is 11 fucking players who can kick the ball to one another..

  5. Millwall + West Ham = Racist shame of English sport.

    Silence is complicity.

  6. OK so in the past I've seen some drivel written by Hammersfan, but actually I agree with you on this one for the most part. I think GFH wrote this season off a long time ago. They know as businessmen that the team we have now just isn't good enough to get into the playoffs, let alone win them.
    As for the financial state of GFH that also looks dodgy as you say. I think a good acid test will be whether they sell Byram to City in the summer.
    Roll on next season I say. New manager, new philosophy, and hopefully some investment in the team (what's that?).

  10. My my you are a complete and utter imbecile aren't you? Every business strives to secure and reward their current members with offers like this. And, in fact, it's perfect timing. The Leeds 4 Less incentive has increased attendance by 5k and 7k in the two games it has been in place. Reduced ST prices for next year not only 're-pay' current season ticket holders after that incentive, but also encourages others attending those games to cough-up. After all, they were the 5th most expensive in the country.

    The news has already generated a feel good factor across the Leeds fan base, with renewed insurance that GFH know what they're doing. It wouldn't surprise me if this new incentive will force the naysayers out of the woodwork to fully get behind the team for the last 9 remaining games.

    Good work GFH.

  17. This post is racist, you need to be very careful what you post out to the world. You need to cut the racist talk making references to monkeys and pork scratchings, you are totally ridiculous with what you post, you make everything up.

  18. The fans have earned the right to be rewarded after being put through so many years of rubbish , this game has fast become a non working mans game anymore and the board are to be applauded for helping keep things real for the fans and future fans of this great club , im 49 and seen great days at Leeds utd but the kids today need help financially to carry the baton , well done GHF

  19. So its 2-1 to Leeds tomorrow says Hammersfan, the great pundit of predictions.

    Don't put too much on at this score I suggest. He has had his failings, like the Palace score and the Leicester score. He just doesn't mention those.
    He has a lot of time on his hands so he writes football blogs.
    Sadly 15 about Leeds since the last one he wrote about his own beloved struggler's.

    He is a sad jealous obsessed man who thinks hes intelligent.

  22. I thought the majority of Leeds fans had a sense of humour. Obviously I'm wrong. Why does HF wind you guys up so easily? Anyway, you've got to have a sense of humour to be a Leeds' fan or life would be miserable 50% of the time.
