How can this be? All along an ignorant West Ham fan, who knows nothing about Leeds, has been warning that the take over might be a smoke screen. All summer I have asked why Warnock has been shopping in junk shops when billionaire owners were set to take control of the club. When Captain Snakeinthegrass was sold, I questioned why he considered Norwich a better option than soon to be mega rich Leeds, and argued that he could have been let in on the details of the take over, if it was really happening, after signing a confidentiality agreement. Yesterday, I posted that the deal had reached an impasse. And what happened today?
So, are all the flat cap whippet owners now going to offer to lick my balls in penance for all the abuse directed at me? Are you all going to form a queue, like you do at the dole office, to apologise? Are you going to touch your forlocks, bow your heads and say, "Beggin' your pardon sir!"? That's what decent people would do. But then...
But cheer up guys, Master Bates is still open to offers from others. He's not closed the door on a take over yet. Well that would be daft wouldn't it, with more season tickets still to sell!
Ever heard the saying "Mugged Off"? And meanwhile, the Kuwaiti who rejected Leeds has bought out Nottingham Forest. Bigger club you see, because they have won two European Cups. Unlike Leeds!
But chins up guys. There's still hope. Bates is open to offers. And he has the best interests of Leeds at heart in the meantime. No, really he does. Honest.
I bet Warnock wishes he was in O'Driscoll's shoes now!
