Bless! LUST just don't understand what's involved in this take over business do they? With Captain Snakeinthegrass slithering off to the fens of Norfolk and an army of nobodies recruited by Warnock despite the oil money supposedly about to pump through the pipe lines, LUST have woken up from their complacent torpor and demanded information.
The statement, however, betrays a complete lack of understanding of who they are dealing with. If the club is, indeed, being bought by Bahrainis, there is going to be nothing but contempt for appeals to be kept in the loop.
The naivity of the final paragraph is incredible as LUST whine: "By not responding to calls from the fans for information, the new owners are not beginning this key relationship in a positive way. Our members want to support a transparent and open Leeds United and being kept in the dark about who currently owns or runs their football club does nothing to achieve this."
Do these guys have any sense of how things are done in Bahrain? Do they not watch the news? Did they not see the pictures of peaceful protestors being shot in the street? If LUST want a transparent and democratic club, the last thing they need is Middle Eastern owners.
And here is the rub. What sort of Leeds United do these shallow fans want to support? Do they have no sense of moral decency? The new owners may pass the FA's fit and proper person test, but the World Cup is heading for Qatar where homosexuality is a criminal offence and where women are treated as second class citizens, so it is clear that wider issues are ignored when it comes to football.
I would hate it if Arabs bought out West Ham and I would personally back an England boycott of the World Cup in Qatar to prove that morality matters more than money. What's Bahrain's position on Syria I wonder? How much of the hoped for money is blood money exactly?
IF the take over ever happens, perhaps Leeds should change their kit: all white with a blood red stain across the chest!
