600,000 reasons why Leeds won't win promotion

Not only has the Reverend hurled scorn upon the obscene spending of the Premiership clubs in the last transfer window, he has also climbed down from his pulpit to share with the faithful why Leeds didn't invest the comparatively paltry sum of 600k on a much needed winger.

As the good Reverend explained, the targeted player, Birmingham winger Chris Burke, is in the final year of his contract and so will be available free of charge in the summer. What would be the point, therefore, in squandering all that money now for somebody who won't cost you a bean in July 2014? And there is a certain logic in that argument for as long as you keep on the blinkers.

The problem, of course, is that Leeds fans want to see a push for promotion THIS season, not wait another 12 months in the hope that the Reverend's prayers for deliverance from the Championship might be answered in the next campaign. Let's look at it another way. If 600k opened up the possibility of playing in the Prem next season, and qualifying for TV and prize money of 60m even for the club finishing bottom, with parachute payments to follow, wouldn't that be a sensible investment?

If GFH Capital aren't willing to punt a paltry 600k to support the Reverend, what chance does the poor sod have of taking the club to the Promised Land?

  1. Wise manager judged it a poor deal.

    West Ham keep pissing the money away that will take it's toll when relegation comes and administration beckons.

    Have a nice day!

    West Ham = Vile racist scum in the ugliest most crime ridden shithole in Europe.

    1. Youre spot on, especially with your first line. "Wise manager judged it a poor deal". Whereas a poor wannabe journalist judged it a good deal.If only we had someone like big Sam who can see a good deal (Andy Carroll?)

      Perhaps that's why HF will always be a wannabe journo and Brian Mac will always be a wise manager.

  2. Yawn, yawn fucking yawn! Stop putting your slant on yesterday's regurgitating news, no one's gives a shit about your opinion except Jack. Ask yourself this! Why spend £600,000 on a player when you could possibly get two wingers on loan and use that money towards their wages.

    1. From a business point of view, you may be right, but if we are serious about challenging this season, we need a Burke now (before he slaughters Warnock !). Was giving Macca a FOUR year contract sound business, when he would have settled probably for three ? Decent wingers are like gold dust - for 600K we might get two Ryan Hall's (nice lad), but what good is that ?

  3. They'll probably get him free next week on loan!

  9. 600 k would not get us promoted so a wise move by BM again.to ensure automatic promotion by spending is out of the question.sensibil BM is showing the faith in the present team,that is not a million miles away by the way,bring in a target or two in the loan window.BM continues to make sense and progress with what he has!!

  12. Do you call him Reverend because he has glasses and a bald head?
    It's not particularly funny mate. In fact, come to think of it, nothing you've written about Leeds is either funny or insightful.
    If your own team are so boring that you have to write about Leeds United why don't you take up yoga, get more flexible and see if you can forever blow some bubbles up your ar$e.

  13. Nobody said GFH Capital weren't willing to put up the money, it was McDermott who wasn't .Maybe he feels a loan deal at this point is the wiser move

    ReplyDelete
  14. Birmingham are desparate for money, we are desparate for a wide player. I think he will be on loan with us next week with view to permanent deal in January.

  15. Well its not very friendly on here to you today cockney boy is it.......so ur saying if we signed chris burke from birmingham,we would have a chance of promotion.one player dosent make a team.i agree with 11.47.get two wingers on loan,and the 6oo grand towards there wages.....just have to find one from somewhere.is stuart downing avalable,or is he playing for a shit east end team.

  16. It looks like you will spend the next 600,000 hours and days trying to think of boring Leeds stories

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ah but you missed the nuance. Brian had the money but didn't wish to spend it. Very wise IMO. Interesting contrast to the profligacy shown by big Sam spending other people's money like its going out of fashion. At this rate the Amners'll be potless by the time they move into the White Eliphant.

  18. Burke is 30!and o.k would be a good short term signing(possibly).BMCD,decided it wasn't a viable amount too pay for a player who is out of contract at the end of the season!!!Oh,on a financial point,the leeds chairman owns all the land around Battersea power station,and gfh are looking to invest in more land and buildings in LONDON!To raise more capital for leeds,ironic eh Hf!!!lol

  19. Perhaps your healine ought to have read- 20m reasons why west ham will go down. That being the approximate sum of the scrap w,ham bought from liverpool. Your obsession with LEEDS will only be a temporary distraction from the crisis at w,ham. The utter embarrassment you all must feel after your club goes crawling on it's knees to beg a player with a goal allergy to return. It must be even worse for those who actually go to games. Or did someone fling a ball towards the boleyn and old unfaithful ran after it,then sam said" carlton, while you're here"........ Good news though,GFH are expanding their portfolio with the purchase of several sites in London including upton pk, they intend to keep it as a knackers yard for the forseeable future. Watch this space for news on why David James couldn't turn down the chance of one last fling in the premier league with w,ham.

  22. 7 articles so far in September - 6 about Leeds
    49 articles in August - 32 about Leeds or mention Leeds
    10 articles in June - 6 about Leeds
    65 articles in May - 37 about Leeds

    If I was a West Ham fan looking at this apparent West Ham site, I'd think I must have went to a Leeds site by accident - since well over half your posts are about Leeds

  25. this is the most stupid article i have read sorry..it doesn't make any sense and no truth in it..who can tell who will be promoted at this time? this writer sounds like the on who should be called "reverend" for making such predictions ?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm pleasantly surprised and quite amused that you seem to think all Leeds need to get promoted is one ageing winger. I never realised you held the rest of the squad in such high regard. Maybe I should be optimistic about this season and not see it as just an exercise in consolidation (tongue firmly in cheek)

    ReplyDelete
  27. the board said the target for promotion is two seasons,so fuck off you shit stirring wanker

    ReplyDelete
  28. As usual HF you,re not looking at the bigger picture.BMD is quietly and sensibly going about the business of running a football club properly.I think he,s spot on in his assessment of this situation.The reason Leeds fans get impatient is because we,ve won everything and had the best team in Europe before.This is something you will never have to concern yourself with HF.Premiership survival is your holy grail as opposed to Leeds whose ambitions are beyond West Hams imagination.

  37. You have "warned" us so many times before GFH have no money. And yet, again and again, you accuse them of not having the balls to spend.

    So make your mind up spam dagger. Are Leeds owners skint? Or just in it for the profits?

    And the expected retort of both will not do. You make the rules about cake and eating it. Which is it? Skint or leach?

  38. 600,000 reasons never to believe a word Hammerfan says,

    * Leeds will defeat QPR 2-1
    * Back Leeds to beat Ipswich 1-0 and cover the bet with the draw
    * McCormack will probably go
    * Blah blah
    * More bullshit
    * More lies
    * blah blah blah

    Credibility factor 0

    West Ham 0 Stoke 1.

    1. His whole life is a lie! Pretending he's loaded, married and living in a foreign country. I'll tell you now if I was loaded and living in a foreign country, the last thing I'd be doing is wasting my time fishing for and lapping up hatred on t'interweb. His so-called well traveled lifestyle don't add up. Probably only has 4 pics on his wall, one of west ham, one of a well stuffed wallet, one of Jessie J and a picture of a sun drenched beach. Southern Troll lives in fantasy land, but outside the window is the bleak, blank landscape of Essex.
