Leeds United Wield The Velvet Axe!

Oh dear, what a shame - and I don't mean that sarcastically. The decision not to offer contract extensions to Bromby and Somma following their injuries is genuinely sad. But full marks to the club for keeping the door open to both players, giving them hope of redemption in this time of dejection. Bromby is staying on as a coach for the youth team and Somma will join in pre season training. So Nice Guy Brian is living up to his nickname!

Mind you, there's a harder edge to the axe for 8 other players - and the biggest loss is unquestionably Monty Gimpel. With a name like that, poor Monty was never going to go far in the game, but this blog has missed all sorts of headline opportunities because of the decision to release him. I was itching for him to make his debut so I could post "Bring out the Gimp"!

Haribo has also been shown the door after barely kicking a ball for the club. There was much excitement when the sherbet fountain was signed but it seems he was more of a jellybean than an allsort.

Still it means there's plenty of spaces in the squad for McDermott to fill - if GFH Capital will alow him!

    3. You refer to a black player by calling him a stick of liquorice, what a douchebag, surely you must see how that could be construed as racist, even for a brainless cockney fag.

    7. What do you expect, we all know he's a racist piece of shit.

    8. I think he was making reference to the fact that his name is Habibou which is similar to Haribo - it's a word play thing you clowns. What is disturbing is you'll sit there trying to arbitrate a racial connotation that isn't there, like a witch hunt. Don't be a set of witches.

  3. The genuinely sad thing here is your blatantly racist description of one of our players. The shameful reality behind a once-great club. Sickening.

  6. No need to refer to Haribo as a piece of liquorice, HF it was totally uncalled for. Mock him for his ability as a football player not the colour of his skin.

    Once again you have shown yourself in your true light. A racist bigot if ever I saw one. You should be ashamed.

  8. Oh I see! So he is also a Martian because some jellybeans are green I take it? In the eye of the beholder, I'm afraid. I was thinking of sweets, not of the colour of sweets. You guys are a bunch of colour obsessed racists aren't you?

    1. Well I'm afraid that in the eye of this particular beholder, and indeed most sane people who read what you actually wrote, that your comments were racist. At best you didn't think about what you were writing in which case you would hold your hands up and apologise. At worst you are a small-minded bigot whose only motive is to offend. I suspect the latter... Care to deny this?

    2. True colours shown!!!! Don't try to turn it round on Leeds fans you piece of racist scum!!!!

    3. As it has been received in a way that I did not intend, I have changed.

  9. All us leeds fans referred to Haribo sweets when he signed you probably put your own spin on the same theme can you not see that a liquorice stick by definition is going to be considered black. Maybe get your teacher to proof read your posts in future, world we live in today a spade is no longer a spade, even if it is a garden tool !! Have some credibility and admit your statement could be construed as racist. If you feel the need to apologise I believe the player is on twitter be a man and tweet him your explanation

    1. In many countries there is also a product sometimes known as red liquorice, which is extruded in a way to resemble liquorice strings, but made with strawberry, cherry, raspberry, or cinnamon flavourings as the main flavourings rather than liquorice. More recently similar products have been introduced in a wider variety of colours and flavours including apple, mango, blackcurrant, and watermelon, among others. Twizzlers (by Hersheys) and Red Vines are the best-known product brands of this type in the United States; in Australia they are produced by Darrell Lea and several other companies. While the common name for this candy has now become "red liquorice", or often simply "liquorice", it does not taste of liquorice. "Black" in "black liquorice"/"licorice" would formerly have been redundant and has become a retronym in North America.

    5. But not in the UK where licorice is in general thought of as being the black variety and as such is used as a derogatory term for black ethnic minorities by racist bigots. Yee haa

  10. The ONLY liquorice in fountains was black and you know it!

  11. Sherbet fountain, famously made by haribo??? Inaccurate as was liquorice I would have thought but hey liquorice is strawberry also. Why change your statement you'd get loads more hits for making a "racist " comment you going soft on us, c'mon seasons nearly over we need you to keep us riled up til August

  12. The sort of post we've grown accustomed to. The race thing was offensive but, to an adult, the mocking of a young man whose dreams of becoming a professional footballer have been laid bare is almost as bad.

    In your rush to offend HF take a little time to avoid being quite so clumsy when it comes to innocent parties such as Monty and Habib.

    From the rest of us, the very best of luck in the future to both players.

  13. Little bit of an overkill with the red liquorice statement, you must be feeling anxious and a little bit guilty, what if the horrible Leeds mob report you for racism and you get shut down, go on think of what that thing between your legs makes you and be a man and issue an apology to those offended

  14. HF,
    Please Familiarise yourself with the "Equality and Diversity Act 2010" it has got nothing to with "your intention" and a well viewed blog is not exempt from action!

  15. a bit of an error on your part hf but no doubt you will never admit it

    Connolly and Rachubka were never going to be offered contracts. Bromby,Kisnorbo and Somma,s injuries were always an issue. Monty and Jordon sadly were not quite there and i wish them all the best for their future careers. I think Habib is a top bloke and has a great team ethos,i have seen this first hand when he was ready to have a go for his team in a recent match. Patrick and Sanchez i have to admit i,m surprised because i think they have enough ability to have a chance. MOT.

  18. Don't try & body swerve! The liquorice in a Sherbet Fountain is black! Don't go on google then spout nonsense. You really have shown your true colours now. Surely this blog has a moderator. Someone, for God's sake, sort this bigot out.

  20. absolutely loving your climbdown from your ever so slightly racist outburst especially the bit about black liquorice becoming a retronym

  21. When in a hole, stop digging....

    though I treat most of your blogs as banter, you have truly screwed up here. Even your excuse is screwed. Sherbert fountains only ever had one colour for its dips so stop back tracking.

    Stick to your KFC buckets and other gibes

  22. The sherbet was white and the packaging yellow.

    3. So by referring to him as white this is just you being ironic, then? This is even more racist than the liquorice jibe. What has the colour of his skin got to do with the fact he didn't get offered a contract? You should be truly ashamed.

  24. Looks like there are a lot of N G B´s out there, or should I say Nelson Mandela´s, Malcolm X´s,.Remember the colored people or whatever name they wish to be called are mostly in the U.K. because the whites wouldn´t do the shite jobs in the 50´s.

  25. Blog posted at 17:35? I heard this story (like all of your other blogs) at least 6 hours earlier. If you're not on the ball enough to post news as its happening/just happened, don't bother!
    You're just a poor little echo, with nothing new to say.

    What concerns me is the openly racist reference through the word velvet. We are all clearly meant to think of the film Blue Velvet and how many black actors were there in that film exactly? None. It is also a reference to blue movies in general and we know how exploitative they are and the way black people are often depicted. Then there is the reference to allsorts, and there are those blue sweets in there too. Disgusting.
