  1. As a founder of LoveLeedsHateBates and the owner/editor of the blog most consistantly anti-Bates since 2007 (and at time LUST wasn’t) I can safely say this article tells us nothing. We are well past the stage of compelling arguments on his removal what we need to realistic options. Alas GFH, with their lack of liquidity, are clearly not realistic and as such the continued angst about when they will complete is wasteful. As we speak no option is in place that would put Leeds United on a realistic track to the PL within 3 seasons and has my site (and its stable of writers) as constantly said, it CAN and WILL get worse before it gets better.

    I would also add anyone who advocates letting Warnock spend monies in any fantasy takeover situation clearly hasn’t seen Leeds play this season and hasn’t noticed a 25% win ratio since he arrived (46% loss ratio), about half the win rato of every other Bates restrained manager. Warnock, as a mate of Bates, is part of the problem, not the solution.
