Leeds Can't Raise £450,000 to Buy Ward

Dear God, how the mighty have fallen! With Warnock trying to strip away the dead wood from the squad and build a team capable of challenging for promotion, a priority target is in real danger of being lost for the sake of a miserly £450,000. Ipswich Town can't believe their luck because they thought they stood no chance of landing Ward with Leeds expressing an interest.

So much for history! So much for being a huge club. So much for heritage. So much for league titles. So much for Bremner, Lorimer, Hunter, Clarke, Giles, Gray, Charlton, Sprake, Jones, Madeley, Reaney, Yorath and co. Bloody hell Gabby could probably afford to buy Ward from her salary from covering the Euros this summer!

Bates should take over the running of Greece, because with his austerity measures, the Germans wouldn't feel the need to invade! However, it's no way to run a club with aspirations to go up. It's time for Leeds supporters to find their voices and start campaigning for a change of ownership. Leeds remain a huge club and their fans deserve better.

I admit to harbouring a deep seated loathing for Bastard United, but I don't want to see them slipping back into the third tier of English football, and if Snodgrass and co depart, as seems increasingly likely, that must be a real possibility. Leeds fans have suffered enough and a great club with a great history deserves better. Surely there's somebody out there who can see the potential and who can buy Master  Bates off? Where's a whippet owning, black pudding eating, flat capped Abromovich when you need one?

Protests & campaigns wont make a difference, i won't go back to elland road until bates has gone but im afraid hes gonna be there til he dies. Nobody will buy from him - no transparency into what you are getting. All Bates has done is asset strip us to the bare bones whilst making us into a footballing laughing stock. Very pessimistic about any future, what was the point of bringing Warnock in & then not backing him!

I must be as sad as you checking the footy gossip! You've just read the Ipswich blog and now write a load of crap about Leeds. Have you considered that Leeds probably don't value him at 450k? Who is he anyway? Most boring transfer ever.

still milking hits by writing about Leeds United. That's just fine and in a way a veiled compliment. You seem to be trying to appease some of us though with some kind, if strained, words. You really don't need to, we are more than accustomed to clubs up and down the country (especially those with a severe minority complex)hating us just for the hell of it. that is the very essenvce of supporting Leeds. You all hate us and we don't care. when that is said, the cancer that is KB that is destroying us from within, is something i wouldn't even wish on a certain Manchester club.Banter between clubs is priceless, but the levels of hatred for a club so afflicted, are often hard to fathom.bates out MOT. By the way, please remove Lorimer from your list of legends, PUPPET.

Are you a closet Leeds Fan????

Cos you spend more time writing about us than your Hammers!!

Big Sam's long ball merchant will be making a swift return to the Championship so enjoy it ( well if you can enjoy that brand of football ) while it lasts!

2 draws against a very average Leeds side..... How poor you are

Hammersfan said...

Lorimer not a legend? 526 leagie appearances, 168 goals? Hardest shot in the league with the old ball. What planet are you on mate?

Lorimer ex legend turned Bates puppet, ..... lost all creditability to take a few groats of bates to fuel his drinking !
Other than that, totally agree with your comments about our resident parasite Bates,.... nothing wrong with raising awareness about this thief throughout the football world ! Now he knows what a liar the man is, Warnock will walk away before the season starts

Quite clearly you do know nothing about Leeds ! Lorimer is no hero at our club anymore coz he's so far up Bates arse that we have come to despise the man ! Why don't u leave it and concentrate on the batty boys of east London !

Absolute joke we charge the highest prices in the league but can't afford any players. Embarrassing !!!

If I were a West Ham I'd have stopped reading this blog long ago. You never post about your club? Did you just get promotion? Shouldn't it be a time of celebration? Until of course November or December next year when Big Sam is sacked and West Ham spiral back down again!

He's KB puppet you idiot!

Ward still hasn't signed for Ipswich, though, has he? Leeds have the money, unfortunately we now have Bates in charge, not Ridsdale - thank God!!

Lorimer WAS a legend, that was until he 'got into bed' with Bates - if you really knew anything about Leeds United you would have understood what was meant by 'By the way, please remove Lorimer from your list of legends, PUPPET.'

MOT

Hammersfan said...

No matter what Lorimer may or may not have done subsequent to retirement, he is a Leeds legend based on his playing career. Didn't Bremner either relegate you or nearly take you down? Does that mean he isn't a Leeds legend? Billy Bonds managed Millwall but remains a West Ham legend.

£450,00 can probably be better spent elsewhere - Jason Pearce was a good buy at £500k - but Ward isn't in the same league - plus I think he only wanted to come to Leeds because his best mate is now there!

at least ridsale supported the manager and club, which is much more than any of us can say KB has ever done. KB ethos is Maximise profit minimise expenditure, good business but at what expense? Killing our club is somehting we should put a stop to, how i don't know but someone somewhere must be bale to get rid of the rot that is almost killed Leeds.

Lorimer as the "fans representative" on the board, is a disgrace. You earn respect by your actions, (not something you did 30 or 40 years ago), and lose it in the same way, which is why Lorimer has none from the majority of Leeds fans.

Hammersfan said...

That's the beauty of this, I'm learning about Leeds. My opinion is from the outside looking in. I still think Lorimer is a Leeds legend and whether or not he is a puppet now should not detract from what he did as a player. There is a contradiction here. You lot claim Leeds are a great club BECAUSE of the past, but you try to dismiss a great of the past based on the present. Make up your minds!

I'm the other way around. When Curbishley returned as manager, I hated him because he had betrayed us in the past when he quit to play for Birmingham City after we were relegated.

@Hammersfan

You can say Lorimer is a legend in your eyes as much as you want but that is your opinion from someone who is not connected with Leeds.

Leeds are a great club because of blogs like these not because of the PAST. All you so called fans from other clubs spend the majority of your time focusing on what Leeds United are doing.

Us Leeds fans still class ourselves as a big club not a 'great club'. The fans at Elland Road are unrivalled throughout the UK very much the opposite to KB
