This is true,my mum does cleaning at the hotel where David haigh and Patel stay whilst in leeds anyway,I spoke to her today on the phone and she says they are not booked in tonight,and surely they need to be in the country to sign the papers so its not gonna be tom defo,so don't get your hopes up,I would mention the hotel but she swore me to secrecy.

Believable13 Unbelievable50

Papers can be signed anywhere, so another useless rumour.

Your Mum's a cleaner ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Not necessarily... Haigh and Patel have been Elland Road regulars recently, theyre clearly wanting to be in the limelight, so I wouldnt be surprised if they wanted papers signing in front of the press. After all look at Forest, they went all extravagant at the City Ground when they signed their takeover (allbeit in different circumstances)

I'm going to say this is believeable. :)

Your mum swore you to secrecy about someone not staying at a specific hotel that they may or may not work at.

Wow that is a good story. Ring ring ring ring..hello Mr Spielberg, you want to buy the movie rights to this fascinating tale...

1. Why would a cleaner need to know the names of guests rather just which rooms to clean?
2. If I'm not mistaken there is more than 1 hotel in the Leeds area.
3. Papers could be signed anywhere in the world.
4. This might be fiction.

Agree0 Disagree0

.... my wife cleans for David Haigh, and she has just hovered up some papers she says have the LUFC crest on them....... Oh god what are we going to do.... Press conference arranged by my wife to publically apologise !!! Lol

haha. brilliant.

Although i seriously doubt this post, there is no reason why the cleaner wouldnt know who was staying in the hotel, i have worked in several top hotels and the information of guests is easily available, believe it or not members of staff do talk to each other, especially "high profile" guests. i doubt that any official papers that are signed related to the takeover would be signed at ER or TA, they could be signed anywhere in the world, and we already know that the solicitors for GFH are a london based company.
I think the facts of the matter are, that the relevent papers have been signed and are awaiting to be sanctioned by the football league, i know we have all been waiting a very long time, but it really is looking like the whole saga will come to an end very shortly. lets hope that our new owners really do have the passion and drive plus the funds to push us on and get us back to the PL, lets face it, we have been far too long in the football wilderness, time to turn the page and start the next chapter.

LUKE VARNEY: Seen on this site that its rumoured that VARNEY is on his way to Notts County.

Believable16 Unbelievable34

Thats his level

Agree1 Disagree0

I sincerely hope so.

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree...At best

Agree1 Disagree0

Best place for him unless he wants to join barn door billy they would make quite a pair!

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes i agree him and billy barn door would actually be decent in league one

Agree0 Disagree0

10 agree 21 dont agree. Does that mean that the 21 rate him and dont want him to go or that they dont agree that a deal will be made with Notts County ? Personally I dont think he'smade any impression at all apart from filling the numbers. Not such a loss to see him go to any team personally.

Agree0 Disagree0

Honest trier, decent lad, sadly not going to get us anywhere near where we need to be though. Good luck Luke if that comes to pass. Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

Good luck to Varney - hopefully opens the door for a decent player to come in

Spoke to Darius Vassell today, he was in Leeds and i asked him why. He said he's currently training with Leeds and while his main aim to maintain fitness he wants to earn a deal here. He says if anything happens it will be a 6 month pay as you play deal.

Believable5 Unbelievable18

Spoke to Darius Vassell today?! You didnt did you. You're just making it up. If you want ill give you Messi's personal contact details then you can up your rumour game a little...My advice is dont worry too much about believability (lol) just make it fun.
( i.e) 'just seen cronaldo at LBA with his agent, agent had a bcfc scarf' etc..etc.

Looks like what ever happen with the current takeover people are lining up to buy us.

Believable7 Unbelievable10

I suspect this is a person approached by GFH to be part of their consortium, who has given up waiting for them just like the rest of us and wants to go it alone.

Agree1 Disagree0

I think if the so called takeover doesn't happen this week we can expect more bs takeover bids for the next twelve months,with no or little investment in the team and more bloodsucking from kb,dark times ahead,

Agree0 Disagree0

Time to forget GFH. I know a lot about Private Equity and this is not going to happen. Its gone on far too long, Mr Haigh is a chancer as are most expats living in the Middle East.

Bates is doing what he does best,..shafting all who he enters any kind of business negotiation with. I have to say i wouldnt go anywhere near bates to do business. Just get your fingers burned and your pockets emptied. Just like he is doing with lufc fans. bates is now soliciting other bids in a hope of somebody gazumping gfh (bet they are regretting this whole saga). Namely his mate from u.s and now this rumoured saudi bid. Bates will be in charge at end of the season and we will be back in league 1.

As for the delay with gfh taking over, will be bates negotiating over every lightbulb, carpets, curtains..everything! Its what he does because he's a person;;]];t. Eating the heart and soul out of this great club of ours.

He doesnt care about leeds, and to be honest isnt that bothered if we dont get to pl. He will make sure he makes a profit by selling players if necessary, and will take immense pleasure in watching us rot in c'ship.

BOYCOTT ER.

Let him know you as a fan have some say in this.

LLHB MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree i dont think it is going to happen and now I hope it doesnt. GFH dont have teh resources or funds to invest the amounts of money we need to get back in champions. We need billions not millions

If we are to belive all the bull of the last few weeks today is offically TOMA EVE. So get the flags out and get off on the lash, as tommorow is a new day to celebrate our new owners lol. I shall be reposting this in 12 months time as you know as well me it not happening.

There will be no takeover, no money, no new players coming in ... boycott ER, they are taking the Pi** out of us now and enough is enough, im not paying £30 + to watch Sunday morning football

Believable50 Unbelievable21

Its ppl like you that bring shame on leeds as a club as if you were a real fan then you would stick with the club in good and bad times so do us a favour n boycott the game alone n dnt return to leeds. if leeds were in division 2 id still b supporting them as thats what real fans do so jog on n go and support mancity n there millions.

Agree1 Disagree0

Also tell me what game/s you thought leeds played like a sunday league football team? v watford? we had pearce sent of and austin injured so hardly gonna win with 9 men so i wnt accept that as sunday league football so now tell me what game we played like a sunday league football team?

Agree0 Disagree0

Fine, don't go, you don't need to tell the rest of the population
As for the proposed take over, you know nothing as to whether it will/will not happen, whether there is money or new players.
As you have to pay 30 to watch them play, which probably means you are not on the board of directors, and therefore, not privi to any information. So in my opinion, you should can your doom and gloom outlook on life and buy another 4 cans of Special Brew

I am 47 years old' I could cry over how we are being treated. Its just getting out of control the way we are being robbed with the entrance costs, 4 programme, 3.50 a pint in the members bar and in the ground, the food is expensive and yet we are 18th in the second tier league with no squad. Its time we started rebelling its supposed to be a average persons pleasure. Its just becoming a rich Sky T.V global sport. They don't care for us no more, football is heading global,. Derby Tickets 32 Kids 14 .50. Last week 30 pounds Burnley come on its costing a fortune.

way past caring

Agree0 Disagree0

Just because you support the team doesn't mean your willing to let Bates horse whip you round town.

I have been boycotting the game ever since Bates took control. I will support Leeds as I have done for 30 years. But I won't play a part to his destruction of the club. When Bates leaves I will return.

Where has all the money gone from the sale of all our top players. In his Monoco bank account and it is persons that keep going that his fuelling his desire to stay.

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with all of the replies, if you want to boycott then do us all a favour and do just that. Anyone who boycotts their club isn't a true fan anyway. I'm assuming that you also boycotted when we started on -15 points in League One? We overcame that adversity and we'll do the same again. I know asking for patience may be stretching a bit now because this takeover saga has gone on longer than it takes Jamie Carragher to finish a sentance, but there is nothing we can do about it. So now, we look forward to Millwall away and every chance we can get three points - JamesC

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't go then .. It's an individuals freedom of choice to go or not.. But the team itself needs our support.

Agree0 Disagree0

Anyone ever wonder how many fans will return when bates is gone? Maybe they will have a other excuse. I can't see it getting cheaper with new owners.

Agree0 Disagree0

Couldn't agree more. Welcome to the fold brother (or sister) Together we will banish the tyrant!

LLHB MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Its nothing to do with how cheap it is we support the club not Bates. When Bates goes I will continue going like I did for 20 years before Bates took control. Until then I am an armchair supporter.

Anyone that follows Leeds blind with Bates riding you like a palameno deserves all they get. So don't come on here moaning and then going to every match. Stand up for what you believe in no matter how much it hurts.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Nov 2012 19:33:02
No need to buy 30+ tickets, there are thousands of cheaper tickets that remain unsold every week at Elland Road.

Every away game ticket I've bought this season has cost me more than any of the cheaper tickets abailable at ER.

Another myth created by folk who just can't be @rsed going anymore but use ticket prices as their excuse.

Agree0 Disagree0

Il always support leeds even if they were non league as thats my team who iv supported all my life n obviously ken bates needs 2 go now but not supporting the team cus its 2 expensive for you is pathetic as new owners aint gonna make it cheaper for you so get a pay rise or just dnt go but dnt come on here telling ppl 2 boycott as some of us can afford to support our team. plus this crazy idea of ppl ruining our club cus we support them n not boycott is pathetic. make your own choice n stop trying to get ppl 2 boycott as 99% of fans r still supporting our club its just you 1% that think your doing good by not supporting the club lol crazy ppl

Agree0 Disagree0

First post. Agree with you mate. Although to be honest I watch a kids under 18 team and they play better football than LUFC. They pass, move, short balls, they have pace and guess what they are top of the league. They even beat a strong open age team recently. jD

Agree0 Disagree0

Why always the same answer to everything with you. Botcott this that or the other as long as it hurts the club we should boycott it. And you say you are a fan, you may be but not of this club

Agree0 Disagree0

If you choose to boycott then shame on you, so keep your money n stay at home n when we get the takeover dnt come back as if u cnt support leeds in the bad times then dnt expect to b welcome back when we get the takeover. all these ppl saying bates is taking us as fools r just pathetic as the yourkshire ripper could b our chairman n id still b supporting our team as all that matters to me is i can say iv supported my team for the past 9 years n will do till i die n im sick of ppl thinking the takeover will change everything as it wnt we will still have poor players like brown, varney, peltier but we as fans always turn up as we r leeds and proud so ppl boycotting can stay away as your no real fans

Neil Danns tweeted that he will be joining a club on loan today. Worked with warnock at palace a few years ago. Matches our needs now too see as Rudy is injured. I think it could be us!

Wont be Leeds thats far too an ambitious singing for us.

He has said it isn't Leeds United!

Not Danns. He says so

Bristol City apparently, not us.

14 Nov 2012 15:58:34
Why do we only seem to go for players that warnock knows, and why can sheffield wednesday be going for connor wickham, and we dont even get a mention - just the sort of young midfielder we need, especially with rodolph out for a while.

Some guy from Saudi Arabia will make a bid for the club in the next couple of weeks if GFH fail to complete the takeover. Source: YEP

Believable27 Unbelievable17

Personally i dont want GFH to take over Leeds,the have messed us around too much,its become a joke

Agree2 Disagree0

YEP now saying GFH are close to sealing deal

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont care who it is just want someone to give NW some funds to bring in a Defender, Winger and Striker sooner rather than later otherwise we are in danger of being in League 1 again next year

Agree1 Disagree0

Its not GFDH that have messed us about, its Bates and his goal posts, trying to get as much as he can

Agree0 Disagree1

I dont think it is Bates this time,GFH have no money or it would have gone through along time,prefer to wait to get descent new owners,not time wasters

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates or GFH. What a choice! No thank you, Michael. I'll take the blow on the head ...
