    An article on Bates’ financial dealings and his cloudy ownership of Leeds Utd would be a matter of public interest but instead the article focuses on an individual probably unknown outside of Leeds. A bit like writing about Rod Hull and Emu when the real story is Savile.

    As Leeds are stuck with ‘dirty’ so the press are stuck with ‘gutter’……..

    Mr Cooper and LUST will be consoled that when they are attacked in the Daily Mail they know they are doing something right.

    Mainstream football journalist in ‘being a complete cunt’ shocker.

    You only have to watch five minutes of Sunday Supplement to realise they are nothing but a spiteful, smug, self-satisfied cabal. What would we do without David Conn?

    Any true football fan will tell you that you cant beat the fans what ever you do. i sent an email to Bates just after he moved in to LS11 and told him the same. He could have made millions at LUFC but just took the pi.. , fans are not thick we were getting 30,000 in the old 3rd div but he just sold players if he had invested he would have kept the fans but he did not and now 20,000 is the ave gate. ( do the sums ya sell more pies etc and get more money with bums on seats)good luck to the new crew from today..MOT

    Another fine day for our glorious, unbiased, principled press.

    Whilst I have no time for the appalling Daily Mail and its “journalists” and automatically have sympathy for anyone unlucky enough to have dealings with Ken Bates, if Cooper had CCJs then (as the article says) they are publicly available and not “private family matters”.

    Would you expect any better from a newspaper that has started to employ the services of the appalling Adrian Durham?
