    You should see the kicking poor Barney Ronay’s taking on the GU forums for saying roughly what you have.

    Clearly Leeds tried to play the system by taking the points hit when relegation was inevitable, rip off their creditors and then tried to bully the FA into letting them get away with it.

    Anyone with an ounce of sense would agree with this verdict. Leeds were let off lightly, and Bates’s brass neck in trying to overturn this shows the calibre of man we always knew he was. And his comment that in some way he was doing it for the good of football…not to mention his wife “famously” claiming that Leeds had lost the battle but won the war…folly. Mind, if he’s talking about wars, there is the resemblance to Albert Trotter.

    And cheers for the mention of the Swans. You’re right, the football at the Liberty has been delightful to watch this season, and that kind of football deserves the success that Leeds tried to rip off them.

    I’d love to be able to make a informed, sensible and balanced comment on this about the rights and wrongs of this.

    Instead though I’m going to point and laugh at Leeds.
