Is a new take over of Leeds United in the offing?

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!

  1. This is a genuine question- Do you know how much credibility there is in this rumour? I am sitting on the fence for now, no point in getting our hopes up just yet!

    You can't control these things. they happen when they happen and you can't decide to do a deal when you want to.perhaps if this is true,now is the time when the Buyer is able or ready to buy for many unknown reasons.

  7. Gah very happy with the way GFH conduct themselves. Very happy with the way Brian McDermott conducts himself.

    Class has very little to do with money - you either have it or you don't and if you do it is usually effortless.

    Do you have any class HF?

  8. Tsk, tsk. No possessive apostrophe for "its". It's a shame (that one's OK, it's a contraction), because you made the error right after remembering NOT to split an infinitive. Do it over, there's a good lad.

  16. Frankly speaking, dont give a shit.

    Another no-point "article".

    All that really matters is that we are relatively secure, keeping our best players and adding when we need. football wise, yes not enough goals, but creating chances just need a few tweeks and we will be fine.
