A spike in the share value, rumours of another Arab prince showing an interest, and now an unexplained resignation from the Board. It's beginning to look as if the Arab Bank Built on Sand may be about to dilute further it's share holding in Leeds United or may even be about to turn their football chip for a quick profit.
Just what this will mean to the club remains unclear. If a take over is in the offing, the timing is pretty poor. The ideal time would have been in the summer, giving McDermott the opportunity to invest in the squad. There's not much point in securing a transfer war chest in late September, when the window has well and truly slammed shut. Still, January isn't so very far away I suppose.
Leeds fans will be praying to Mecca that the real deal comes along this time and that all this talk of "steady progress" will be ditched in favour of speculating to accumulate. One thing seems clear now, for genuine progress to be made, Leeds need to be bought by an owner with a bigger bank balance and bigger balls than GFH Capital.
The next few weeks could be interesting!
