Such a shame because, whatever he's done and however he's done it, he has tried to protect Leeds, paying off their debts and all.

Wonder if Bean just has an axe to grind for getting shi*t-canned?

Oh no, Not again. He sails too close to the wind this guy. Whatever his intentions he just seems too risky.

Thought this season was going too smoothly
Wish the FA/FL would just back off and leave the club to it. Neither organisation can really plead innocence from being corrupt can they?
Getting seriously fed up with this. We can't be the only club who have this sort of thing going on so why are we the only ones targeted?

Massimo Cellino: Football Association ban Leeds United owner for 18 months

The Football Association have suspended Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino from all football activities for 18 months and fined the Italian £250,000.

He was charged with breaching the FA's football agent rules over the sale of Ross McCormack to Fulham in 2014.

In addition, the club have also been fined £250,000.

Cellino, whose ban will start on 1 February 2017, has already indicated to the FA that he intends to appeal against the ruling.

Somebody up there really has it in for MC. The penalty seems to far overwhelm the crime in this case.

A damn shame, if you ask me. Compare the state of the club today to the state it was in before he took over.

Hopefully he'll be able to conclude any deals he may have in place with possible investors before the ban takes effect.

Disgruntled employees are the best, aren't they?

Does seem overly harsh given punishments handed out to clubs previously. Think the FA needs to clarify why there is such a difference.

Agreed, but it would take someone with the necessary clout to demand an explanation, and even then they'd probably say it's because he's a repeat offender.

The FA is it's own kingdom, and they don't need to explain anything to the serfs.

Celino might be a crook but at least he's our crook we needed someone to get us out of the mire and he seems to have successfully done that the football league need to clarify the rules we seem to be getting singled out too many times for this to be coincidence you wouldn't get 18 months for doping or taking bungs attaking referees or kung fu kicking a fan the ban is totally disproportionate

Is this the doing of the FA? I thought we were governed by the Inept Football League. I'm confused.....
