It is getting more and more surreal at Leeds United. It's all very well for no news about the takover on a Monday to Friday basis, but come Sunday, you expect one of the rags to at least have a punt when such a major story is sitting anaethetised in the nation's news rooms.
Where is Deep Throat when you need him? Surely somebody knows something? Surely one of the Sunday Slurries should be unmasking the man behind the Leeds United buy out if a buy out is really happening?
This is a big story. Or it should be. But nothing. The silence is deafening. Just a fuzz of White Noise because Aidan has signed a new contract.
Master Bates, meanwhile, sails the White Pig through the placid waters of a turbulence free summer, picking up waifs and strays for next to nothing as the soon to be billionaire yacht drifts on untroubled by noisy natives. Before you know it, the season will be upon us and then the transfer window will have closed.
How long will the take over take I wonder? It would suit Bates if this went on for ever!
