Ok this comes from someone who is famous in the world of sport.
I know 100% the person know warnock personally.
Anyone details on who my source is text me and I will tell them provided they keep stum I will tell them.
Ok so hopefully I may get a but more trust than some in here. I
'm currently at york races in the voltiger restaurant and I'm talking to someone well connected down ER.
Warnock cleared his desk before he went away, bates rung him and told him he wouldn't be chairman by the time he got back and has been bid £40m for the club.
This hasn't gone through and warnock doesn't trust bates and at this second in time we are manageress!
Warnock has 5 bosmans waiting to come in. Paddy k, Derry and some kid from stoke he named but I missed the other 2. He was promised £2m to spend but hasn't seen 1 penny of it. I know bates and warnock met the other day and he does not know the outcome but warnock has not signed his 12 month extension prior to going away to Barbados.
Here is the truth from what is almost the horses mouth.
Dont know you personnaly mate but i do know from this site and the members forum,that you are well respected so i trust your post 100%.So thanks for ruining my week end.Would have expected an announcement though if the deal is dead,did he say who put in the bid,i heard it was that Canadian
Sorry mate not the brightest,Bates excepted 40m but the bidder then pulled out??or is it still on.Also if Bates owns ER AND T.A Wouldnt that put him in deep shit for lying to Administration boys.good luck at york hope you make a bob or two
He didn't know if the take over was still on or not. Just that bates had told him he would be gone by the time he got back but he was still there, so along with not a penny from the so called £2m transfer budget he no longer trust bates and at this moment in time is out of contract.
He last spoke to warnock the day he left for Barbados.
I'm loosing my shirt buy the wife is doing well picking bloody colours!
Not doubting the information posters on here are getting from people who are supposed to be in the know ! The problem i have with it is are your sources actually being told the truth in the 1st place ! Chinese whispers , things get exaggerated and added , so i find alot of this a bit hard to believe . Bates has a long history of lies and deceit and is very good at manipulating people , part of me thinks this may all be all be about selling more season tickets etc , as for Warnock , dont think he would of come out in the press to say he staying if he was thinking of going , think we are stuck with piss stinker Bates to be honest , i cant see anyone wanting to do business with someone so crooked , and if as suspected the cunt does own thorp arch and Elland Road he is more of a crook than i 1st thought ! Personally if he stays we need to drive him out and the only way to do that is not to go to Elland Road , dont become a member and hope we go into administration , they wont let him back in again , Die u cunt Bates !
the thing is, you can't even trust the press, I mean their stories are recycled news from various sources that frankly don't stack up as real news anyway. How much do they pay gray and lorimer to tell us what we already know ?. I hope the fees go to charity, because if they take a wage from that drivel then they ought to work in asda pushing trollies if they want an honst living. I'm with you melton, if there was any news worth telling we would have heard by now.
mentalpen you are partly right about warnock, his resignation is on the table and is dependant on this takeover not going tits up, these people leeds are talking to are big hitters who predict top 3 in the next five years which considering the clout in prem at moment that i is big money.
i cunt be fuckin arsed mate to troll the forums to post something in the hope of making myself noticed. bets have not been edged, im just telling you what i know, if ya not interested and think im an attetion seeker dont fuckin read em.. simple as
There's two people who would have SCOriginal, a bloke who used to get into loads of fights following Leeds, and can back up everything he says, OR an Internet troll, who's chosen it to add a bit of cyber weight to his argumentative muses. You working tonight Donnily? Toot toot
Funny how folk analyse a name......a troll I don't mean to be just having an alternative opinion that's all. As for being our local bobby then behave your just getting paranoid. Now these lads may be in the know but to date I have not seen any of it come to fruition.... Some were claiming big announcements last week and nothing came of it... Heard this blah blah. I know someone within the club but the only 100% fact I know is that Americans were at ER a while ago but I don't know what for. I would like to believe something positive is going on given that Colin is still here and Bates is keeping his usually big trap shut. No signings does not mean nothing is happening to get players in afterall none of the players are due back till July to start pre season. If folks predictions come true then fair do's .... Time will tell on that one.
Fair enough Ilkley. Wasn't a trick question or owt, like I said just curious. I know from a reliable source that Americans/Canadians or blokes with yank accents were def at TA that Thursday. Just wondered if they were still at the table. Sick of the silence from the club tbh. Fucking shite way to treat ur fans.
not really got any experience of this lad either taking the piss or giving it large, that's the only reason i'm reading his posts with any interest. It just goes to show though, how desperate we all are for positive news. if we were split arses talking about their fave soap we'd deserve to have the piss taken big time.
i have a very strong feeling i know the player you are talking about. this takeover is very similar to his chelsea sale. invest no money into the club, use money that should be spent on players to build up the ground, get to an untenable position and then sell for a massive profit. one thing i do know is that the takeover is going ahead but is at a critical stage,dillegance check is taking its time, but who wunt when you are are dealing with a bloke who would rob his own granny, i just hope it dunt collapse for the sake of us fans
if it is mentalpen ......well he wont be far off always a sound lad on here ,and ilkley always has a ring of truth .......... im hoping and praying you are bang on fella , bates cannot let it fail now ,can he ?
Tell you what,its time we all packed in when someone as respected as Mentalpen has to vouch for who he is when making a decent post.Oh and just to clarify i don't give a flying fuck if my spelling or grammar is correct... SAVY
Have heard very similar stories from people connected to the club, Bromby lives next door to a mate of mine, him Clayton and Mccormack all use the same barbers in Cleckheaton, as does another mate (those of you who know me know i dont need a barber these days) lots of disquiet among the players but something is definately affoot regarding takeover, Warnock is losing patience but has given Bates until end of the month or he's off
As with Pitbull, I can vouch for Mentalpen, and dont doubt a word of what he has posted
I can confirm the above heard the same from brombys window cleaners brother.... No reason to doubt the source. Warnock to forest..... Rednapp to Leeds after takeover from zillionaire sheik wattaloadabollocks. First signing is messy next Tuesday you heard it hear first.
I think that the silence from ER and lack of transfer activity going on could be good signs as that is to be expected during due diligence checks etc.
My main worry is the checks turning up some rotten apples which puts off interested party or simply bates being his normal obnoxious odious lying self driving them away.
I will be pleasantly suprised if it doesnt all go tits up.....it always does for us doesnt it ?
Problem is that there is still too many that buy anything Bates throws at them. If we come 14th again Bates will call it consolidation and that we have a sound platform to build on. The gullible out there would swallow it yet again. A lot of people have had enough of the shit in the last 7+ years but i feel its still not enough. If it falls through league 1 is beckoning and that ultimately would be the end to Bates.
