FA charge Leeds director Edoardo Cellino over comments made on social media. FA say "abusive" comments are an aggravated breach of rules as they included reference to disability
What next for our once great club... :duno:

These are the people running our club!!

How anyone can defend them is beyond me, "let's not try to hound them out, instead find someone with money to take us over" is completely laughable!!
We need to rally to show we actually give a damn about OUR club!
I want these scum out!!!

This 'silly little boy' as you so affectionately call him has once again tarnished the reputation of our once great club! I am sick and tired of all this bullshit!! I was there in the sixties, seventies when 'The Don' built our fantastic reputation, working hard, winning endless titles, cups etc etc. We are now a laughing stock! Don't give me the silly boy routine! He is an absolute and utter ++++ !!!!! ( the fact that I am a lady, and that what I really wanted to write would have got me banned from MOT.....

Everything about this club yells "circus" and "freakshow" and has done for a good while now. I'm sick and tired of hearing myself whinge about it. Unless there is a change of ownership and (just as important) an absolute sea change in how the whole club is run, then we are well and truly screwed forever. The very best we can hope for is to cling on to our Championship status through more years of lower-mid table mediocrity, the worst = a freefall down the divisions a la Portsmouth.

If there is anyone out there who still can't see how utterly rotten to the core this administration is then I completely despair. As I've said before, clubs like Middlesbrough, Hull and even bloody Huddersfield are laughing at our incompetence and stupidity.

Leon, I know that making the decision to take a step back must really hurt you but I can completely understand your point of view. There is only a certain amount of time that an administration can treat its fans (or "customers" as many would call us) like absolute s*** before we walk away.

Edoardo Cellino's behaviour is a mere microcosm which encapsulates the lunacy of these people that are flushing the good name of our club down the s*** shute.

Thanks mate it certainly does hurt, I feel like something has died inside of me

I'll see the rest of the season out, more a loyalty thing to our SC & the Griffin SC Branch whom i travel to away games with. After the Preston it's time for me to take a break & regather my thoughts or should i say my sanity

I agree on both points 64. It was just that enough is enough for me. I was so angry that once again our top brass are dragging our name through the mud! (My rant certainly wasn't aimed at bobly but at that idiot Eduardo)
I too, am sickened at what is happening... :(

You getting a membership next year? That's all I'll be doing, doing more aways, killing me that I'm having to let go of what we built in the south! But no other choice

Probably Wolfie

Hopefully can obtain tickets for Villa, Newcastle & Norwich (if the Canaries are relegated). Would plan a few days in Norfolk & Northumbria for the latter two, I'll be in a better financial position to do so if i'm not attending three games a week :-D

let's not try to hound them out, instead find someone with money to take us over - is not defending cellino?

what's the point in forcing them out if then we get taken over by someone just as bad...or even worse?

Problem being who is going to buy if the reported figures of £50 - 60Mil are correct, the squad is worth what £20mil , so what is the other £30 - 40 mil for?
Unless he takes a loss on his investment he'll be here for the foreseeable future. He paid well over the odds for us and will struggle to get it back barring us getting promoted which is going to take a lot more investment. We'll be going round in circles for years to come.
It will all come clear in the end

and that's his decision to make...not ours, 2 ways to do it...sell off everything he can first then the club for whatever and leave taking a loss or get us in the premiership...the third option is he gets paid off and the forth option is administration. I'm voting for option 2 while hoping for option 3...

The only 2 palatable options, faaip, but we're currently a mile off 2 and for 3 to happen, someone with a shedload of money needs to feel they can do business with the volatile Cellino. Breath not held.....

There's not a cat in hell's chance that we'll get promoted under Cellino. I'm certain of that.

probably right, and tbh I don't think the odds improve under new ownership for a while especially if we have to sell to survive. Something that is more likely than not if we're bought on the cheap

I think we will get promoted with Cellino. Has the money for very reasonable investment in players. Just needs to fine-tune which players and more importantly get the right coach/manager in and stick with that person. As he has found out, Italian football is a world different to English football, in terms of what is required for promotion, squad, and personnel investments. Glass half-full with Cellino atm.
