DON'T BOYCOTT GAMES!! THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE!!

DON'TS
1) Justs stop buying programmes, pies, pints,
2) Don't go in the members pavilion or any of the restaurants/Bars
3) Stop buying merchandise
4) Stop using viewing deck or Executive boxes (You don't need to be at football if your not watching it - if you are watching get a seat in West or East instead of those boxes)

DO'S
1) Support the team 100%
2) Buy a ticket and fill the stadium (Buying a ticket will cover basic costs for the staff and ground, it won't line Ken's pocket, but it will keep the club breaking even)

I don't support Bates nor do I overly care if he leaves. All I would like to see is the club retain its dignity and fill the ground on our way to winning the Championship

M.O.T. bk to the Premiership!

Believable79 Unbelievable22

It will take 50 yrs to get rid of bates that way

Agree1 Disagree0

Okay, let's break it down.
DON'TS:
1) so do not buy programmes, pies and pints then, am I allowed to buy candy and pop for the kids?
2)so do not go into the restaurants or bars then, watch the game hungry obviously
3) so no replica kits etc. then for overseas friends and family, ( they send me Denver Broncos things and I only repay their kindness)
4) so stop using my executive box then, (as soon as I can afford one I will.)
DO'S
1) support the team, (the idea had never even crossed my mind, thanks for that)
2) buy a ticket AND fill the stadium, on my own? what with? (apart from the vacuous void that fills the space between your ears)
I see your posting time was 19:20:53, did it really take you all day to dream up this nonsense?

Agree0 Disagree0

Your points are valid except 1 fill then stadium every home game cover the costs results he will still play sellers to show a profit last season gradel smecheil and howson so he could show a profit wether we fill the stadium or not we will sell our better players force him out of leeds by boycotting games force him to either invest or sell all the lets fill stadium bollox nothing will change and majority of fans dont use the boxes anyway so thata mute point

Agree0 Disagree0

ARE YOU FOR REAL!! This is why bates is still here, through are blind loyalty.
BOYCOTT, BATES OUT!! 4LIFE
mot4life

Agree0 Disagree0

U guys r diluded man, ken bates ownes the club. u see that word "ownes" means it belongs to him fans have no right to take that from him, if u dont like his business shop elswhere, simple, look i dont liek bates but truth is theres not a whole lot that can be done, not filling hte ground and protesting damages the club as a team probably not so much as a business, i would imagin most of the revenue comes in from sponsorship and the fl, bates will cut more to get buy if his cash is threatened nothing personal its jst business
if you want controll best thing to do is buy shares and become a sharholder

Agree0 Disagree0

It's peoplewith your attitude that is keeping bates here dont we deserve better dont we deserve to keep our better players are you happy been a feeder club for norwich come on give your head a shake unless your happy with bas-ard bates

Agree0 Disagree0

As far has im concerned bates can get stuffed if he thinks he is getting any money from me bates out all the way!

Agree0 Disagree0

Only company that loses out if you stop buying pints is the catering company. stupid idea.

Agree0 Disagree0

Question to you all who would we be supporting had he not come along 7 years ago.

We were in a 100.000.000 debt. No shiek wanted us then. He cleared our debts we are operating on a profit and with a few loans and a better result again Blackburn be second.

So back to my original question who would we be supporting ?? Forget takeover and support the team it will happen when it happens

Agree0 Disagree0

Boycott 4 games and Bates is gone. We're not going up so forget that. Even if we lose 10 points through admin we wouldn't go down either. Do it now and have new owners before January and get some quality in. Short term pain. Long term gain. Truly enjoy your Saturday watching Leeds. Don't accept being Norwich's feeder club.

The other option is more years in the Championship, making no progress. We can't go up with our budgets as they are. We need change, we need investment.

And by the way, in the next 12 months we'll go into admin with or without Bates as the clubs finances are SCREWED.

Boycott. Simple.

Agree0 Disagree0

Excellent post, i am quite surprised that peoples hatred for Bates is greater than there support for Leeds United

Agree0 Disagree0

To the second from last post piss off you know sweet Fa about finances we were in a cva do you know the stipulation of a cva?????

You are one of those people who should take a run a jump

Agree0 Disagree0

I cant believe theres so much hatred for kb, he single handely saved our great club from the cleaners. credit where credits due get off his back cus the best deal for him will be the best deal for leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Grow up. Football is big business. Go the games and enjoy yourselves or don't bother going at all.

good to see kieron dyer on trial with us. Warnock should definatley sign him up for cover

Believable25 Unbelievable34

He's not even on trial

Agree0 Disagree0

What exactly is good about Keiran Dyer 2012? Had great potential about 15 years ago, then got rich, lost the plot a bit and got injured! About as much use as Alan Smith 2012 -sorry! Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

And pay him how didnt warnock say the cupboard was bare no cash

Agree0 Disagree0

And he's only got 1 leg most of the season
Russjon

Agree0 Disagree0

NOT TRUE!! Even if it was, don't you think we have a nuff players on the treatment table as it is.

Agree0 Disagree0

More Garbage

10 years too late.

Agree0 Disagree0

Dyer & Jenas surely theres better out there? Still i trust Warnock to prove me wrong

Agree0 Disagree0

What absolute twaddle.

LR, Northants

Agree0 Disagree0

I've seen nothing of this? Ed is this this true? The guys a walking injury!

Sy BsE Leeds {Ed013's Note - First I've heard}

Agree0 Disagree0

So we get dyer in as cover which means we will also need cover for dyer

Agree0 Disagree0

He's just on trial with our new physio department

Just read an article by Phil Hay in YEP. Looking at some of the comments on there seems to suggest this 'fill-the-ground-for-speedo seems to have come from a club source?! Totally cynical if this is so, just goes to show how low papa smurf will stoop. Didnt think i could hate that man any more than i do already..appauling. Bates has not got a humanitarian bone in his body, just sign the papers Bates and get out of the club i love. BOYCOTT ER LLHB MOT

Believable29 Unbelievable14

I'm sorry pal, but Gary Speed was a Leeds and Everton legend and I would encourage any fan to be there to sing his name, cos it will be a fitting tribute. Sod the takeover, if it doesn't happen well tough. We are AND ALWAYS will be Leeds. I'll support my club regardless of where we play and whoever is in charge!!

JT

Agree2 Disagree0

Why do people keep saying boycott Elland Road? The more fans turn up the better it is for the players so the more the merrier . Or do these people want to stay in the Championship

Agree1 Disagree0

Bates in, LUST boycott monkeys out!

Agree0 Disagree0

Join the list of people who hate this parasite i dont think his own family like him he proberbly stole there pocket money

Agree0 Disagree0

To responder no. 3, i posted the original msg. LUFC has had phenomenal support from the time we were relegated from the prem a decade ago. Bates has been in charge for the majority of that time. I understand the general point about the advantage a hostile home crowd can offer, 12th man and all that, but it is abundantly clear that the crowd will not get lufc promoted, GOOD players do. Every time a player of any quality has made a mark, he's been sold. Replaced by journeymen for a fraction of the incoming transfer fee (have a bet on tom lees in a ncfc shirt by end of season!). Bates is fleecing all of us, he's a swindling cockney barrow-boy and whilst he is at leeds we will be watching dross season in, season out and WE WILL REMAIN IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP. LLHB MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

How is it cynical if it comes from a club source, u think that maybe this club source is a leeds fan?, maybe knew garry speed? trying to promote a great atmosphere for the game?
i ithnk ur the cynical one stop with the negativity its geting as boring as the takeover saga

Agree2 Disagree1

Bates in, LUST boycott monkeys out!...Tell you what Kenny boy, stop dicking around on rumour sites and sign the fecking papers, then go and inflict your will on pompey.

Agree0 Disagree0

I read some of the articles on boycotting games someone mentioned the Everton game well sorry this is our chance to show every person that watches TV how much we loved respected and now miss one of our own. Leeds fans have always been known for their passion but for anyone who even thinks about missing the match for any other reason than financial or work reasons please remember Speedos memory this is not about Bates and his greed this is about showing everyone just what we though of him. Plus imagine the atmosphere because both sets of fans for once will raise their voice as one to the memory of the late great Garry Speed. Put your differences with the old greedy git aside we will be their to celebrate two great teams and the legend that meant so much to both sets of fans!!

Believable57 Unbelievable14

Well said m8

Agree0 Disagree0

That's the problem it is about bates,this is emotional blackmail ,using a gr8 players name like Gary Speed to fill the ground is low even for bates,we don't need bates to tell us when and where we need to remember our legends, we are leeds bates never will be!he care's nothing about leeds,the fans let alone our history/future or our gr8 former players, so please don't let ken fool you or blackmail you, think of the bigger picture,

Agree0 Disagree0

Fantastic post, any true Leeds fan and evertonian will honour speedo with grace and dignity that night.

Agree0 Disagree0

This IS about bates, nobody who supports leeds will forget speedo but IT IS time to move on and think about the long term future of the club. Sadly I feel evoking the memory of speedo and using it as a sort of lightening rod to galvanise leeds support amounts to emotional blackmail. I WILL continue to boycott ER until bates has gone once and for all. I will continue without any notion of disrespect to the late, great Gary Speed LLHB MOT

Agree0 Disagree1

Well said 2nd poster.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well said, money is taking over football, we have to remember the grass roots and the memories of those that played and loved the game, and those that still want to play for the right reasons.

Agree0 Disagree0

One of the best posts I've seen on this site, for one game lets forget about Papa Smurf and lets honor one of our own!
ClaydonWhite

Agree2 Disagree0

I can't wait to watch this game! Atmosphere is going to be electric! Woooooo Gary Gary, Gary Gary Gary Gary Speed! Rip Leeds legend

Agree0 Disagree1

Bates gets 125,000 in TV money according to YEP, so it wouldn't bother him that much (Already got my ticket!!) - A boycott if people want one should be a Tuesday night game (cat B or C) as it would really hit his pocket.

Agree0 Disagree0

This is the original poster I wrote that because it's what I believe I don't expect everyone to have the same opinion as me as it is a free country fror all of you who won't be there for whatever the reason whether at home or in the pub have a moment to remember the joy he brought us for us who will be in the Crowd let's make it a night no Leeds supporter will ever forget

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates is like the pied pipper he just whistle's his tune says what he knows will play on our heart strings and you will all dance to his tune like the previous poster said this his about bates and we dont need himtelling us how to show respect for the late great speedo

Agree0 Disagree0

Emotional blackmail lol? ha u u think bates is chilling in monaco fretting all night about how he can try manipulate fans to show up lol please even if this is from teh club it will have came from pr doubt itd b him personally plus its the right thing to do people are getting way to carried away lately and its putting a downer on a great start to the season :s

Agree0 Disagree0

If people want to boycott games fine but this is just one game and is listed as a Cat C so therefore it will hardly affect the revenue if you are to continue boycotting the rest of the games so just think of it like that! If only 15000 turn up cause of this boycott i will have never been more embarrassed to be a leeds fan!

Agree0 Disagree0

takeover complete today after new owners have drawn up a final contract. ken bates set to take over portsmouth end of next week.

Believable57 Unbelievable82

Where have we heard this before?

Agree0 Disagree0

Wish & hope this is true but like many others I'll believe when I see it on official site and news outlets.

Agree0 Disagree0

I do feel that something is happening as Mick Jones says that he and other staff are scouting this weekend for loan players. Seems like a green light has been flashed.

Agree0 Disagree0

If this is true, im down the ticket office for Everton game and next home game,..if, however its a load of bollards (highly likely) my personal boycott will remain, no let up til bates is out the door. LLHB MOT

Agree0 Disagree1

Pompey bought already by supporters trust mr bates wont get a look in. sorry its not true.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope so could exspain why we got 4 pompey players in

Agree0 Disagree0

Portsmouth trusts 8million offer got knocked back on Wednesday...chainrai back in for em and hopefully masterbates! MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh ken you,ll get yourself in trouble letting the cat out of the bag,you know you signed that gagging order 100+ days ago u senile old man!
Kella74

Agree0 Disagree0

We fans treated like mushrooms..... kept in dark and feed rubbish.

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't know why people are so bent on this takeover. Things worked out really well for Portsmouth, Birmingham and Rangers didn't they!
We may well find out what it is really like to be owned by someone who is only in it for the money, rather than someone who's business sense has saved this club and got it functioning as a profitable business, able to sand on its own feet without debt. Sick of the Bates out mob, you do not have the best interest of LUFC at heart.

Agree0 Disagree1

Last poster we have the best interest of the club but seems you don't fans like you are keeping bates at our club bleeding us dry,bates out now!

Agree0 Disagree0

Where has this come from - lets get real nobody knows apart from bates and the potential new owners

Agree0 Disagree0

Please forgive me when I say I don't believe a word you say...shrew leeds

Agree0 Disagree1

Original poster here . bates made an offer of 15 million for portsmouth. expected to be done deal by wednesday . so dont expect to hear any news on the leeds takeover before then . although it has been finalised as a low key meeting was held this morning, and deal done. good times ahead for lufc fans . new owners paid 50 million instead of the 40 million that was agreed end of june .

Agree0 Disagree0

Utter nonsense. Bates won't pay 15mil for Pompey considering their fans trust etc were only paying a low few million.

Crmd

Agree0 Disagree0

Another made up storey

Agree0 Disagree0

Well believe what you will but you heard it here first chaps .

Agree0 Disagree0

So they suddenly agree to pay an extra 10million when the overall value of the squad has gone down? who is the new chairman then? Dipsy, La La or Tinky Winky?

Agree0 Disagree0

Ok, so if it doesn't happen by 12 tonight that in theory makes you a natural born liar does it not ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Fans intent on buying tickets for matches if takeover happens, staying away if not. Who are you supporting? LUFC or the next businessman who takes over cos nobody knows who were getting. Foreign investment has failed previously look at Portsmouth. Stick to supporting the team let the money men worry about the money

Agree0 Disagree0

Portsmouth fans trust had 8.5 million refused so if bates was to offer it would be more realistic to be around 10 mill not 15

Agree0 Disagree0

You are a real comedian ! Mr original poster. If bates would be unlikely to pass fit and proper person test as posted by others on here if (god forbid) Leeds go back into administration under his chairmanship/ ownership, why would he be allowed to buy Portsmouth FC .. He would fail FPPT.
If you are so confident in what you post is true fact, who is your source. I think you are a WUM !

Austin scores for Jamacia over Yanks in 2-1 win

Believable56 Unbelievable15

Course he did!!! He's a machine

Agree3 Disagree0

Don't understand when people put 'unbelievable' on things like this,it's fact. personS we are the people haha

Agree2 Disagree2

Deflected freekick, seemed to have hardly any power on it after it got deflected, either way good to see him score and not get injured.

StevenLufc

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes but his confidence will grow and his stock will rise having added a goal to his international tally!

Agree1 Disagree0

It was an unstoppable 45 yard drive that took the keeper into the back of the net and one of the yanks out of the wall !

Oh and Leeds has been sold.
