Radebe could derail Leeds United's promotion push

Just when everything seems to be going swimmingly, along comes Lucas Radebe to announce his interest in buying into the club, triggering another round of destabilising speculation.

McDermott needs this like he needs a second hole in his arse. Everybody has to be utterly focused on what is happening on the pitch right now, not worrying about who might own the club come the end of the season.

Tell me, what is the point of Radebe going public at this stage? If he genuinely has the best interests of the club at heart, he would conduct negotiations in the deepest, darkest secrecy. It's not as if an injection of cash at this stage would make any difference - the transfer window is shut until January. So, if the Radebe fronted consortium is serious, there's time to thrash out a deal and ride in on a Whites charger just as the cash is required. And let's face it, if the £7m figure reported is anywhere close to accurate, there's no full take over on the cards.

Given the way Radebe and his chums are playing it, you can't help feeling that this is a publicity stunt at best, and at worst a tactic designed to derail the present promotion push - because if Leeds go up, the price will rocket.

So why has the Pearson / Radebe consortium come out now? To try to buy a stake on the cheap, knowing that if Leeds miss out on promotion they have paid the right price, but aware that should a Premiership deal be secured, they will land the deal of the decade.

And in the process, they are endangering the nascent Leeds United surge.

If GFH Capital have been talking to Radebe behind the scenes, they must be pretty bloody angry that he has unilaterally announced his interest to the press. Meanwhile, there's the little matter of a game with Miserableboro at the weekend for Leeds to worry about!

  5. I wish Radebe would keep his big gob shut! I agree, Leeds don't need this interference. We need to remain focussed on the job in hand. GFH are doing a good job both on and off the field., another 30,000+ on Saturday, good league position, excellent morale in the team...and why would they accept £7mill when they will get more than that for Byram!

  6. Jack-off. You ARE Hammersfan, without any question. GHF have always said they welcome investment. This is actually GREAT for morale as it shows we are a commodity attracting interest.
    Only one person ( HF) would try and put a negative slant on this, and he pretends to have someone who agrees.Desperate tactic HF.Must be trying to take your mind off west Hams pending relegation .

  7. Radebe never normally courts publicity so why has he put his hands up so early in the piece here???. A proper, meaningful push at investment is required, not another long drawn out saga.

  11. Wakey wakey spamjackdangler. have you seen the activity on the interweb following this news. Wind your neck in and work it out. Maybe you might come up with a more original line of attack. Your are on a loser using HF-mouthpiece-Jack to stir it up against The Cheif. Try not to demonstrate so painfully how little you know about Leeds United just to garner hits. It's just embarrassing!
