Somebody at Leeds should have bought Andrew Flowers a diary for Christmas!

An interesting statement from confirmed Consortium member, Andrew Flowers. Quoted on the club's official site, Mr Flowers said:

“I’m delighted to confirm that I am part of the consortium that will be acquiring the major shareholding in the club. As a lifelong Leeds United fan and as a businessman, I can assure other fans, that while the process is being finalised, we have been working hard to ensure that our due diligence was completed as quickly as possible and that there are funds in place ahead of completion to support the manager during the opening weeks of the January transfer window.”

Well according to the information at the bottom of my computer screen, today's date is January 8, so we are already into the second week of the window - and nobody has been signed thus far and the takeover itself has not yet been completed.

The cynical amongst us may begin to suspect that the takeover will be completed closer to January 31st than January 1st, and that excuses will then be given for not being able to act in this window - the right players weren't available, the figures quoted were too high, we have taken a view that it would be better to keep our powder dry until the summer, no point in rushing in and regretting afterwards...It would have a very familiar ring to it wouldn't it?

Of course, Haigh, Flowers et all may deliver. A new player may arrive tomorrow, the takeover may be signed sealed and delivered tonight or tomorrow or the day after; and white pigs may be flying over Elland Road before kick-off in the next home game as part of the pre match entertainment.

In the meantime, somebody should be yelling at Haigh and Flowers through a megaphone: "It's January 8, we are into the second week of January already. Every point counts. Pull your bloody fingers out!"

  1. I think you mean " and what excuses will then be given " instead of " and that excuses will then be given ".

    Just a little typo I know but a man of your caliber I would expect more of :)

    1. "Your own team's on its arse and you're worried about our club" would read better my friend.

      I am not worried, I am commenting. I am worried about tonight's game however. Cricket score here we come!

  9. Cynical or what HF? Anybody would think you have been following football for years! You may well be right - absolutely anything is possible where MoneyMen are concerned. We'll see and I'm sure you will let us know if proved right - at which point we can all save our money until next season when it'll all start up again....

    1. Too many times, if I am honest, and for the closest we have come to beating you lot when I have been present, you have to go back to the early 70s. I think it was the game on March 31st 1972. We were two goals to the good with ten minutes to play, and then Eddie Gray turned it on and scored twice. Final result 2-2. Not amused as I left the ground with my Dad! And it has been unending misery ever since! I even saw Leeds beat Southampton once, and I was cheering on the Saints!

  35. Great signing for west spam. Roger Johnaon who has been relegated concurrently for the past 3 seasons. What was big sam thinking. That has to be the worst performance from any team from any division I have seen ever, although the Forest game is also up there.
