Bates still in UK, Gfh 'guests' will be at elland rd again tomorrow for cup game.
Bates wouldn't be using his UK days up for no reason!!

Pateso

Believable42 Unbelievable3

Thats a good point, forgot he had limited days

Agree2 Disagree0

Its interesting that the group have remained.
There has been a suggestion that GFH are the buyers now and not the brokers.
I think we will know which very soon.

Agree1 Disagree0

How do you know Bates is in country.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well I intend to ask them tonight at the game. I shall gauge where we are upto and also ask them to get a shift on.

Agree0 Disagree0

Fitzy, you forgot to sign off your post just now.

LR, Northants

Interesting looking at gfh capitals past and how they posted huge debts in 2010,let's hope they are sorted for good if they really are to buy Leeds utd,and hope there's no repetition.

Believable6 Unbelievable3

Might be wanting to put there debt on us isn't that what the Investors did at Liverpool and mufc

Agree0 Disagree0

They are the brokers

Agree0 Disagree0

Calm down , there is a huge difference here! david haigh is born a leeds fan ! not some guys wanting to pass their debts on.

Russjon

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

Just like borre b worth the punt for free ;) MoT!!!

Agree2 Disagree0

Fitzy! welcome back!Is it day release?What about Kenwyne Jones?Have you met up 4 a burger and a chat yet?

Agree0 Disagree0

Had an idea of what these responses would be when I seen john fitz at the end.

StevenLufc

Agree0 Disagree0

Different teenagers do different things to get attention. Some act out, some harm themselves and fitz obviously makes up crap rumours about the countless footballers that cross his path.

I've just read Leeds HAVE tabled a contract offer to Anthony Vanden Borre's reps after he's turned down an offer from São paulo.
"APPARENTLY" were close to landing him too as he's after the games obviously for his internationals career.
Looked him up on youtube, watch some of his games and goals and is well worth the punt for nothing. {Ed013's Note - He is a good player, id have him tomorrow}

Believable25 Unbelievable7

The bloke is crap, why wud we want him

Agree0 Disagree2

Yeah, internationally capped players are rubbish.

According to a web site Barnsley are set to be taken over by an Arab consortium, just been online to have a look and it says its the guys who wanted Leeds but have grown tired of waiting. Hope this isn't the case after what Bates said at the weekend.

Believable10 Unbelievable64

Yeah that's right can you tell me who the 4 Arabs were at elland road on saturday with bates and his missus??

Agree0 Disagree0

I think it's been widely touted that LUFC are the last genuine footballing franchise (fan base, potential etc) available. The investors will be fully aware of that and their ability to make money. I mean Barnsley ffs ... like it!
If you were in the market for a Ferrari but they didn't have one in yellow, you wouldn't go and buy a Robin reliant instead would you eh?!

Agree2 Disagree0

No it doesn't it says a couple of party's are interested no names stated and no approach made.

Agree0 Disagree0

They did not look tired at the game

Agree0 Disagree0

2+2 = 8 again.

It has nothing to do with our deal

Agree0 Disagree0

It's an Italian consortium.

Agree0 Disagree0

That's like ordering a Mercedes, getting fed up with waiting so buying a Kia- it don't happen like that!

Agree0 Disagree0

Barnsley have more chance in getting bought out by a takeaway owner!

Agree0 Disagree0

That'd be the equivalent of ordering foie gras with a side of finest lobster, only for it to take slightly longer than you want for the waiter to bring it out, and promptly storming out to the nearest Mcd's and raiding their bins for your meal.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ive read elsewhere that its the same guys "RUMOURED" to be looking at Tarn that are after us too but like most other fellow Leeds fans i don't believe it for a second as WERE the biggest club in Yorkshire full stop.

Agree0 Disagree0

It's an Italian consortium who want Barnsley you person!

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Sep 2012 19:27:34
they are not from the middle east but from italy

Agree0 Disagree0

It's been on local tv news...It's definetely an Italian consortium & no link to the Leeds takeover

Agree0 Disagree0

It's an Italian consortium. They've got a London based property expert in as there are some interesting property angles.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would anyone rather invest in Barnsley over Leeds?
1. Initial buying price cheaper
2. Takeover maybe less complicated (ours seems to be very involved with various companies involved
3. Do Barnsley have shareholder? If not might mean investors have control they want rather than 50 percent of someone's 38 per cent
4. Fan expectation less, maybe more accepting of gradual development with less initial finance rather than instant top notch signings we are after
5. Player contracts probably half in value money wise or less than ours, all would have to be honoured if there was a clear out, same with management team and back room staff.
6. Wouldn't have to deal with bates during negotiations and the possibility of him still having a say for a while at the club
7. Both teams on 10 pts and they beat us home and away last season

Not a Barnsley fan, Leeds through and through but we have to remember these are business people and all above points are valid. However I think the process of due diligence and negotiations are too far down the line now for our takeover to be affected but you never know

a friend of mine's young'un is on a huddersfield town scholarship and was told by a member of the coaching staff ,that jermaine beckford was on his way to sign for huddersfield on loan for the season(and pay his full wage) when he pulled out at the last minute when he received a phone call from his agent telling him, he had spoke to a bigger club and they had asked him if he would stay put for the time being.

the club was not mentioned to my mate( he did'nt know who it was but did say it was a championship club),but it p*ssed grayson off big time,that a deal was done and he pulled out before signing.

which club could it be?

rothwellwhite

Believable23 Unbelievable27

It was leicester who pulled out at the last minute
JK

Agree0 Disagree1

Sadly nothing to do with JB or his agent Nick Rubery....it was Leicester that pulled the deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would Leicester pull plug when not even getting on bench hardly
Not saying they didn't just saying it might make more sense that beckford instead of Leicester said no
Russjon

Agree1 Disagree0

Norwich! HA!

Agree0 Disagree0

Your guess as good as ours russ but its fact it was Leicester pulled the deal, not the player,agent or uddersfield!! Google it....look on his agents Nick rubery Tw!tter.

Agree0 Disagree0

Becausae leicester wanted to sell but huddersfield only wanted to loan with view to permanant deal

Agree0 Disagree0

Orrr
I was hoping this was true
Russjon

Agree0 Disagree0

Yea,like agents tell the truth,lol

Just seen rumour Simon Grayson given funds to sign beck ford and church hope not.

Source bbc football gossip

Believable12 Unbelievable26

Bet Huddersfield fans are s####ing there pants
Grayson with funds!!
Imagine what he would have paid for the cak he signed for us!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Well leeds didnt have any money when grayson was ther, the signings he has made at huddersfield already are very good signings and expect more of the same. bates was a fool to let him go

Agree0 Disagree0

Forget about Grayson and Beckford, they are yesterdays Leeds, let's move forward

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Sep 2012 19:32:23
FFS why dont people read before disagreeing ?
Its true what poster writes {Ed013's Note - Don't let it bother you, rival fans come on (mainly Kids!) just to press disagree buttons!}

Agree0 Disagree1

The funds bit might be true, but not who he wants to sign

Agree0 Disagree0

Please if there is a god and David Haigh is part of the deal. Someone make him chairman because with them comments "Great city, the best team and great fans" Thats the sort of person, we could all get behind and be united again. Aslong as everything goes through and we see some extra cash to bring in a few good players. I will be happy and will stop my Bates out chants.
We all want whats best for are club. People will always feel and take a different path to achieve some sort of change for are club. Ask yourself why. Its because we all love Leeds, its in are DNA.
Now i'm dieing to get the scarf and ar=e down to ER for the Everton game. Here's too hopefully happy times ahead my fellow fans.#
Well done Neil! That win was much needed and has kept us in the hunt.

Was at match sataurday, investors would of been impressed by teams comittment with so many injuries to first team and the fans who gave a good atmosphere imagine when ground is full,it will be when bates go.

He is most likely just trying to get things off to a good start from us Leeds fans. What is encouraging is that he has got a twitter account, I know is is involved in a lot other business but it would be an ideal way for him to form a positive connection with the fans. The fans need to feel more involved with the club when its not a match day. Should be interesting if the takeover goes ahead will the attendances go up, hopefully a ticket price drop will be considered.

StevenLufc

Agree0 Disagree0

Aslong as he doesn't say "living the dream", otherwise he'll fit the Ridsdale 3 point criteria (leeds fan, likes to flatter the club, wants to be the worlds best)
