Well Master Bates is clearly not on a charm offensive. He's had a go about the Warnock and about GFH Capital, and now he has spat his dummy in the direction of Becchio and Leeds fans.
Talking about the wage demands of Becchio, Bates says, "Luciano Becchio is a perfect example. Luciano was already the highest paid player at the club but his agent wanted £1.5m a year basic wage. Even the thickest Leeds fan must see we can’t afford to pay a player £30,000 per week."
Of course, Leeds fans are likely to take umbrage at this, but based on comments left on here, I'm not sure the thickest Leeds fan can actually count, never mind grasp the implications of paying 30k a week to a mediocre player who just happened to be the best on Leeds United's books. Spelling "you're" is beyond most of them, so Bates really shouldn't expect too much of the knuckle draggers within the club's fan base.
Now, of course, I am only talking about the thickest Leeds fans here. But I'm sure they will be quick to respond to the post in the usual way. Cancer anybody?
