Ouch. Master Bates has come over all Luis Suarez and sunk his dentures into the backsides of GFH Capital, Patel and the Warnock.
How fascinating that Bates wanted to sack Warnock back in October but was unable to do so because GFH Capital insisted he remained in place. What does that say about the judgement of the Arab bank built on sand?
And how interesting that Bates was unable to do anything in the transfer market because everything had to ratified by Patel first. It seems as if Leeds' promotion push was hamstrung by the new owners which hardly bodes well for the future.
Master Bates may, of course, be rewriting history to make himself appear good, but there is an interesting divide opening, given Nice Guy Brian wants to play happy families and President Ken is still a card in the pack. Is Bates one of the irritants that McDermott wants removed and are GFH Capital trying to ease him out of the door perhaps?
If so, it seems that Bates will not go without kicking and screaming and biting a few arses on the way!
