That and a few other nuggets I gleaned last night. 

Waiting for the hangover to die down and I'll pass a few more on...

Did you get the chance to share more on this Charliesboots? Apologies if missed, but sounded pretty interesting? :0)

The gift that keeps on giving. Listening to the gash about their non existent billionaire is like watching Monty Python's Life of Brian.  When Wally was quoted in an interview with sunday Independent saying his family are rich,but NOT billionaires, you could here the blue few desperately yell back,oh yes you are oh yes you are. As the Monty python classic shows the crowd gathered in Denial as Brian shouts down to them,I am not the Messiah, the crowd continue to shout back, you are,you are..    As Wally says, he's not a billionaire. That's why he's trying to get a loan (finance) to offload on the non believers. Even with the loan money he will find that financial fair play will give him a good excuse for not splashing the dosh.

Miah,

I see (according to EP) one of your Leg-ends was injured in an RTA over the weekend.

You will have watched him, as I did. My point is ,where does the EP get off calling "LEGEND" on any hobbledehoy who happens to pull on a jesters shirt for a couple of games?

I refer of course to the world renowned.... Christian McLean !

(wish him quick recovery BTW )

has this dastardly act spread following our neighbours relegation a few years ago or were they on a day out in Glasgow and got a bit exciteable?

That was just some dirty 'ted in a red shirt who only turned up to cause trouble :grr:

I hope DC is smart enough not to go there.

That's no disrespect to Leeds, more so their owner as the article clearly points out he's trigger happy. I wasn't worried when he was put in at 12/1 or whatever but he's down to evens now in the space of a few hours. 

For what it's worth Super, the tinpot comment was clearly sarcastic.

That might be your problem.

Why would anybody go to Leeds?

Is the salary huge?

Is there a guaranteed severance package when they get fired a couple months down the line?

I suppose if the answer to either is yes then some mercenaries will go there.

I don't think DC is that stupid. But time will tell if he is.

Karl Robinson has apparently had an epiphany and ruled himself out.

Just broke out for lunch here in Arkansas where it's a lovely 24 degrees sunny, cloudless sky kind of a day, we've got a tasty warm buffet laid on with some very sumptuous looking strawberries I'm eyeing up for dessert.

What could make such a wonderful lunchtime even better? I know my phone going wild with the news of "The Dogfather" himself speaking to Leeds Utd.

Now I can say a little over a Million £ a year is on the table and he's not going to get much assurances from his new owner Wael as his contract negotiations there haven't even been discussed but what do you expect from a club who wouldn't buy new goal nets when DC asked for them so bought them himself.

The "Owner" (and I say that loosely) has no money, he hasn't put anything in to the club other than buying out Piggy and Co. 

Oh actually he did buy them new catering facilities A NEW BURGERVAN to help increase match day hospitality revenue, so add that to the Asphalt for the UWE car park it's a win win situation.

If it's all definitely on then DC will be gone, there's no love lost between him and the new regime.

As for the Stadium? When your going cap in hand around City financiers like a desperate scene from 'The Producers' (as one friend told me the meeting went) to get capital then you know it's going to end badly especially when your OWN FAMILY BANK can't raise the money itself.

"Thousand foot barge pole" described another friends reaction to them too.

Still they remain delusional and the messiah will deliver.

I suppose it's like the Newcastle job in that they all go there knowing if they get it right they will be legends and highly paid ones at that . But the truth is for one reason or another they all fail. Leeds is still a huge job in this division if the money's right he will take it and he will fail.

In fairness if it goes pear shaped this season at rovers those owners won't hesitate to get rid of him.

True , he has to move whilst his stock his high . If they have a bad start he will be sacked just not with as much money as when Leeds sack him.
