    Excellently put. I simply could not agree more, particularly about the relative inactivity of Leeds fans and the Supporters’ Trust. From whining about the serious position that they find themselves in because of Bates’s presence, it is now simply a matter of whining about the (to my mind relatively light in the circumstances)penalty of fifteen points. If they get promoted, they won’t give a monkey’s. You tend to think they get what they deserve.

    On the matter of HMRC still going after the full amount outstanding from Leeds United:

    I still believe that this was a capitulation. They were owed £7.7m and should (as I understand that they would from anyone else) settle for no less than this. Having withdrawn from the court case, I can’t see where they can go with it, but I’d be less than surprised if they settled for the same few pence in the pound as everybody else under the strange arrangement that KPMG bartered when the CVA was withdrawn.

    Have you read Tom Bower’s ‘Broken Dreams’? Slightly out of date now, but leaves you in no doubt what a scumbag bates is.

    It’s essential reading for anyone who was shocked by the Allardyce Panorama. Anyone who had read the book (which names names and gives plenty of detail) just shrugged their shoulders and said, ‘Yes, we know’.
