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?
