Who would imagine that Sheffield United could ever be a better bet than Leeds?
It's far from impossible that Shafting United could end up the richest club in the bottom division of the Football League after that humiliating defeat against Rotherham, but nevertheless, a Saudi Prince - an Arab reputably with money! - still regarded the Blunted Blades as a better bet for investment than the once mighty Leeds United!
Leeds fans will queue up to blame Master Bates but, inconveniently, the Saudi's agent has revealed that an approach was made to buy a stake in the club after GFH Capital had bought out canny Ken. The trouble is, this Arab wanted to invest in the squad rather than buy a financial trading chip, and the Arab Bank Built on Sand were having none of that!
Personally, I hope it all goes tits up for McScab's scum, but, for the time being, this must be utterly galling for all those who fell over themselves to boast that Leeds would be spending billions when the rumour of an Arab buy out first emerged.
A partnership between Prince Abdullah wheelly bin Mosaad swing top bin Abdulaziz al Saud and GFH Capital would surely have been perfect, with the Saudi financing player purchases as the Bahrainis capitalised on promotion to the Prem, but the opportunity was inexplicably missed.
Unless, of course, this Arab himself, like Leeds United's owners, is also a few camels short of a full caravan!
