News of the Forest take over broke at the same time as Leeds announced a confidentiality agreement and Birnam Wood has since walked on Dunsinane, whilst tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow the Leeds deal creeps in its petty pace till the last syllable of all recorded time. Statements issued by the club are full of sound and fury but, to date, still have signified nothing of substance.
Watford's Godfather style takeover has been completed too. Men arrived with violin cases in the middle of the night, there was a flash of light in the darkness of the Watford corridors and suddenly Consiglieri Duxbury, Godfather Nani and GianFredo Zola were unveiled. Meanwhile at Leeds, Old Mother Warnock continued to complain that his cupboard was bare.
And now Birmingham City have announced that they are in take over talks themselves. Who would bet on the ink being dry on the Leeds deal first given all the delays to date? Yesterday, Leeds were compared to Pamela Anderson. Perhaps that was wishful thinking. Maybe, just maybe, the prospective owners are not waving but drowning, desperately hoping for a financial lifeguard to come to their rescue and keep the deal afloat?
It's all happening in the Championship; it's just not happening at Leeds!
