"There's Nothing Stopping" GFH's Takeover of Leeds!

That's what they've just said! Well if that's the case, why hasn't it happened?

If nothing is stopping it then can someone tell me what IS stopping it?
Complex, global, corporate businesses have been taken over in less time. Bloody hell, countries have been taken over in less time lol.

Wow. Most insightful post ever.

Apologies, I'm just going to borrow your West Ham blog to talk about Leeds briefly.

In a nutshell, don't you think we're all thinking the same thing?

If you take a moment to read any of the comments on these news threads, I think you'll find a large amount of skepticism towards GFH and the proposed takeover.

I think most fans now are now quite nervous about the prospect of being taken over by GFH. And besides, I think we're all pretty bored of the whole saga. It's an embarrassment.

However, allowing my self a moment to speculate, I'm really not sure the hold up is with Bates. I can't really see the motivation for him to drag it out. I believe there is a problem with the bidders (i.e. cash flow).

Seeing stories of rival bidders appearing only makes me believe this more. I believe these are the sort of bull**** stories that get deliberately drip fed into the media to speed up the deal (i.e. by Bates or Leeds club management. Perhaps even fans...)

Anyhow, I'm off now. I'll leave you to creating a steady flow of enlightening content that nobody thinks is very good.

Well Cocknose! Not sure why it's concerning you at all. But hopefully the rumours of rival bidders showing an interest is true, and that the dodgy Chelsea twat is stalling until after the exclusivity period has ended so that the other bidders can show they're hands.

If they want to. They just dont want to yet. But when they do there will be nothing stopping them, see.

Perhaps GHF enjoy your blogs on this subject so much that they are deliberatly delaying the takeover so they can continue to be entertained by your Rapier wit and astute observations.

yeah you may well be correct but at least we wont shit our pants when we play millwall this weekend.

Mmmmmm...very good question to be fair.

It was gunna be on my birthday in June, then sometime in July, then before the end of the August transfer window. A Thursday in Spetember was muted, followed by halloween (or should that just hollow) promise. Bonfire night has come and gone, perhaps it will be an Xmas present or deffo before the end of the January transfer window....oh..or, or..by the start of next season at the absolute latest.

Dip your bread in while it lasts, Leeds were just as sh!t in the 80s, with crowds down to 15,000 in the old 2nd division. Then guess what, we got promoted and won the league...you know the kind of thing...that big feck off silver trophy with handles on it that has been ours 3 times.

I recon what we really need is to be bought by a couple of dodgy soft porn kings and move to a running track miles away from our traditional home...history, credibility and humility..who needs that sh!t eh when there is a big feck off payday in the offing.

We could be one of those fashionable yo..yo outfits, you know the kind..the ones that everyone says they love to watch but in actual fact they win feck all, get on TV less than a championship club thats not famous anymore, and nobody (apart from the Lions) actually gives a sh!t about.

I stopped commenting on these posts ages ago. 1. It's just a wind up designed to get a rise and 2. Bores me to tears.

Ha Ha, who else could you even write about so much, when they arnt even your club. Its a back handed compliment realy that you spend so much of your time obssesing about the mighty whites.
The jokes on you and you cant even see it.
Leeds and proud

It will happen when they decide it will. Nothing stopping it apart from them not wanting to sign the last piece of paper yet.

My gut feeling is the hold up is actually to do with the buying back of TA and ER. GFH want everyting sorting at the same time and will not buy the club without the training ground and stadium.

So - there is nothing to stop them completing the deal to buy the club BUT they will only do it when they have the other bits in the bag as well.

Now jog on and get your armchair warm to watch us play Millwall on the TV Sunday lunch :)

You may not shit your pants against Millwall,but will you get any points?

Skid mark free shorts won't help if you don't win three points.

Keep marching on together( over the cliff.)

Yawn usually your shite blogs are longer... Oh well it's easier to get to the comments on this one lol!

Hammersfan said...

Bit of an oxymoron there Anton. How can you post that you stopped posting on here ages ago?

RMGFC said...

Yep, I stand by my prediction, millwall 3-1 Leeds. And I predict Leeds will fall well short of their away allocation. Could well be relegated this season as I see a complete lack of quality in their squad. West ham on the other hand beat millwall with 10 men last season, and have stormed the premiership this season, full of confidence and quality. Jarvis is worth more than the whole Leeds team, and he isn't even our best player! Carroll is enjoying himself and looks like signing permanently this summer. God it feels good to be a hammer right now!!!

I thought that, by definition, a yo-yo came up as well as down?

Hey Headmaster, your Yo Yo appears to be 'up' Hammerfans backside....again

I've been thinking about leaving the articles themselves alone, and cutting straight to the comments, just to find a better standard of writing than Dr Weevil's. It'd be a pretty fail-safe plan, but not even necessary on this occasion, as he's finally managed to achieve a contribution as short on actual keystrokes as it is on wit, humour and talent. Nice one!!

Well done sir. You will move on to a Janet and John book if you keep progressing at this rate. Or Spot the Dog.

Hammersfan said...

Can't stay away though can you handsome Rob? It doesn't matter how many times you leave your picture though, I'm not going to date you.
