Latest crazy twist in Leeds take over soap opera

So now the shark has been bitten, with Cellino's legal representative marched off the premises by David Haigh, who just happens to be heading up a rival bid to buy the club. Whether or not that was with the authorisation of the present owners, GFH Capital, is unclear but what does that matter? Perhaps anything Cellino can do, Haigh can do better!

Leeds fans are now pinning their hopes on a combined Pearson - Haigh bid, or to put it another way, a Together Leeds Sports Capita bid. Of course, Haigh, in his role as an employee of GFH Capital, dismissed a bid from Pearson's group as "derisory" not so long ago, so this is hardly a marriage made in heaven, but beggars can't be choosers, and what is happening at Leeds beggars belief!

One thing seems certain, if this marriage of consortiums goes ahead, there will be no massive injection of funds into the club. Sports Capita couldn't stump up the necessary funds to buy the club less than a month ago, and 75% of the entire business was being sold to Cellino on Friday for two thirds of what Moyeschester United paid for Matta. And meanwhile, Pearson was rumoured to have offered half that figure when trying to cash in on GFH Capital's financial miscalculations when they bought a financial drain thinking they were buying a gold mine.

The club is haemorrhaging cash and credibility by the day and with all the consortiums bidding so late, any expenditure in the January window has been conveniently avoided - just as I predicted one week into January when I blogged that somebody should buy Flowers a diary. Of course, Pearson and Haigh will make all the right noises about wanting what is best for the club, but if this is true, they would have got their fingers out and completed a deal before the window slammed shut. But that would have been expensive wouldn't it?

And ironically, that's where Cellino might be the better option, because should his bid succeed, Leeds might suddenly be bolstered, Watford style, by an influx of loan signings - albeit the rules on this have been tightened since the Pozzos exploited a ridiculous loop hole last season.

But let's assume for a moment that Haigh and Pearson prevail, then surely the broth will be in danger of being ruined by so many cooks as Flowers, Haigh, Pearson & his band of merry Yorkshiremen, Patel, Noruddychance et all do battle to exert ultimate control.

The plot thickens like the thighs and waistband of the average Yorkshire lass. McDermott is back in the engine room but God knows where the train is heading. Tomorrow will probably bring another twist, and should Leeds lose at Yeovil on Saturday, the wolves could turn on each other and start ripping the club apart.

And who is that smiling from ear to ear? Revenge is sweet for Master Bates who may be tempted to send pens to all the members of LUST who campaigned so hard to get him out of the club, inviting them to explain exactly how Leeds United has benefitted from the GFH Capital take over.

      Mate, there's no need for the shite you've said at the bottom of your post, its fucking low and the only thing you're acheiving is justifying the "vile animals" name that we ALL get tarred with! Give your head a shake eh?

  11. Throughout this whole debacle lets spare a thought for the shoddy treatment Uncle Festa has received. He only wanted to sit on the bench and chat to his friends in Italian and serve some Spaghetti at half time...Now he's being treated as a Pariah ! Shame on Leeds !

  13. "as I predicted" OK Nostradamus, tell me- will the hammers stay up? who will end up being the owners of LUFC. One prediction on each would be ideal but I suspect you will cover all bases, throwing misguided and uneducated conclusions in all directions, only to try to smugly declare you were right when the eventual conclusions are revealed!
    Paying that useless, brainless Geordie all that money to be injured and then suspended is hilarious - he so obviously really cares about the club making him a multi millionaire! NOT
    MOT

    1. Although I haven't seen the news this morning, so that could change. Then again it might change again at 11am, then again at 2pm, then again...How about administration? It's not impossible!

      With regard to Leeds, I simply pointed out the delays in the takeover and drew a logical conclusion. How can you apply logic in the present chaos?
