Take Over Of Leeds Lost In Translation


 
So, yesterday, ahead of the Watford game, the BBC proclaimed that the take over of Leeds United FC was "imminent" and predicted that it "could happen within days". Well yes it could, but then again, it could not.

Leeds are now down to fifteenth in the table and are increasingly drifting away from the clubs at the top, even though none of them are exactly moving full steam ahead. Even in a division where no team seems to want to stay at the top for more than a week, Leeds are floundering.

The remedy? Some good news. A huge fillip. A shot in the arm before a must win game at home to Watford tomorrow. Imagine the atmosphere if the take over was completed today! Imagine a packed Elland Road celebrating the departure of Master Bates and the arrival of the oil billionaires! Imagine the fun on the terraces as Sheik Rattle and Roll is played before kick off, followed by Sheik Kira's Lips Don't Lie, followed by Sheik Your Booty. Just imagine!

But why imagine? Why aren't they breaking their balls to make it happen? The clock is ticking. Leeds cannot afford to fall any further behind. Surely, if they want this deal to happen they will make this deal happen today.

Unless of course somebody misheard. Maybe, instead of "Takeover? Imminent!" somebody said, "Takeover? Erm I meant..."

this post was just an excuse for you to be able to use your 'songs with Sheikh in the title' puns wasn't it.

How about 'Sheikh Your Money Maker' by the Black Crowes or anything by Sheikh-in Stevens?

That's two poor posts in a row, not a bad pun on words at the end (6/10) but that's really just about it.

Could it be that you were drawn to Romania by the orphanages full of vulnerable children?

Heading towards the dregs from your barrel now, Dr Weevil. It's going to happen, and what can you do then but weep bitter tears of frustration. It'll be back to writing - shock, horror - about Wet Spam's latest season of struggle, celebrating 0-0 draws at home against bigger clubs, and trying to find some positives about the reign of Sam "Fergie's Poodle" Allardyce.

So you keep making your low-quality hay while the sun still shines on your anti-Leeds world. It'll be time to face reality soon enough.

Why have you written this blog for what reason ? Why do you write about Leeds ? I keep asking but you won't reply !!

"followed by Skeik Your Booty. Just imagine!"

I know you are that desperate to write about Leeds United every chance you get but at least check your spelling.

Relax hf, I'm sure it will happen. What you haven't grasped is that it's absolutely irrelevant when this takeover goes through provided it happens before 31 December. As such these articles you keep writing are pointless. If we get to 1 January and it hasn't happened then fair enough.

Its far too easy to say the takeover will lift the team/fans and we will start getting better results. The problem is a complete lack of quality due to non investment by the current regime and losing the few half decent players we had. There really isn't a debate here.

One thing for sure is you can't fault the efforts of the current players and the 'never say die' attitude instilled by Warnock. Under the circumstances he's actually doing a very good job and you completely overlook this time and time again.

Takeover Leeds? If, when, why? Leeds United currently poor on the field. Crap, in the Boardroom. Worse than crap potential buyers, if newspaper talk to be believed.

On a positive note, great fans. Things should / can only get better, we hope!

Time that Mickey Mouse was not involved with the behind the scenes going's on at Leeds.

Time to move forward, real, investment, better players. I am sick to my back teeth of the rubbish printed and surrounding my team.

A prayer from a Leeds fan.

I can't believe he has made spelling Mistakes he keeps telling people how stupid they are and how smart he is !! Maybe he isn't as smart as he thinks

It's certainly looking really positive for us now with Warnock effectively being handed a "blank cheque book" in January. I only hope they can convince Warnock to stay on another year as I think well be certainties to go up next season. I know we could still potentially make the play offs but were not a cup side ( despite this unbelievable run in the league cup). Our destiny is to go up as champions and tbh I wouldnt really have it any other way.

Its just a shame we have to play these game between now and next season as they are a waste of time really and I honestly don't really care about the outcome. We need to look at the bigger picture.

A plea to my fellow Leeds fans. Do not count chickens before they hatch! This lot of camels in the desert are probably worse than pappy smurf!

They are awful, Leeds have been let down ever since O'Deary and Skidsdale. Why should things change!

Why can't somebody with vision and cash buy the club, not another bunch of bullSh**ters!

Now here is a little children's story for bedtime. There was once a naughty football team who employed illegally a dwarf with amazing powers. Tevez was his name. He had magical football boots. He bewitched and used magic and saved a sad bunch of cock***s from a more humble life. They cheated a steel city side and it's manager of their deserved reward. Warnock was the poor victim. The barra boys caught a hefty fine but no loss of points or relegation for cheating.

Goodnight children, sleep well Hammers fans.

Headmaster, its hard to hear your words clearly, but then again that's how you got your nickname; by having your head so far up Hammersfan's arse it's muffling your speech.
