Leeds United Message Board
What a nightmare day!
GFH have shown their true colours and although Cellini may have agreed terms with how the hell can he pass the FL's fit and proper ruling. He couldn't when he tried to buy Palace and if he thinks forming a family company without his name on the sheet will pull the wool over the FL's eyes he should be very wrong. However, with Shaun Harvey in charge there who the hell knows!
To have the audacity to sack Big Mac (whether you are a fan of his or not), when you do not yet officially own the club is a mystery to me, but GFH must have given him the go ahead, which for me puts them in the NOT fit and proper category.
Under the circumstances the team did everyone proud and whether that form can be sustained remains to be seen. In the meantime we are a laughing stock once again, and I for one am not happy!
You could be right Andy, but I am beginning to think there is more to this saga than meets the eye.
We are now between the devil and the deep blue sea. Cellini looks like he will pass the fit and proper test, and there is no doubt he has the money to invest. The mixed consortium are more palatable, but where will the investment come from? And where has all the money gone yet again?
According to reports we are losing money hand over fist, and yet gates are up, sponsorship is up, and the bankers are losing money? Someone must be paying themselves fortunes or else the interest on loans must be the highest in the world. Looks like we are being dredged before the Somerset levels!
31000 for the Huddersfield game despite being on a 6 match losing run. Average gates this year well up on last year yet we are apparently haemorrhaging money. something is not quite right!
