The Independent Arbitration Panel who have deliberated over the Football League’s 15 point penalty imposed on Leeds United have decided that the pre-season punishment was just and therefore 0 points will be awarded.

Lets hope thats now an end to it. Thanks Ken for trying but lets concentrate on winning the play offs.
Good luck in that, you've beaten the odds so far, and with recent form you guys should do well.
Sad man! don`t you get it we`re still in the play offs and its only football that looses. We`ve gone through it and its gone....Luton next and Bournemouth and endless others....those clubs have it to come
It's up to Gary Mac now to keep the teams heads and spirits high. I think it's a travesty of justice that we didn't get the points back, but there you have it, we need to re-emphasise how good we really are on the pitch and get out of this league.
hahaha we all hate leeds scum!! u dont deserve the points back for cheating nice try though it was never going to happen!!!

HahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaHahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaHahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaHahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaHahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaHahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!

I think Leeds have done really well this season to get 6th place when they started on minus 15. It would be nice to see them get to the play off final and then get stuffed like they did a couple of years ago. Will chear me up after you did your best to ruin our promotion party. The Jacks are going up!
We dont need the points..We will get promoted and show you lot how it's DONE!!!!!
Oh well, never mind. The playoffs will be good and i can see the future is LEAGUE 1 for another season for LUFC.
Oh, I thought you'd at least get the points reduced.
ha ha ha ha leeds scum deserve nothing at all. hope you meet forrest in the playoffs because you will lose. another season in league 1. douglas and beckford bramall lane bound!!!
Many thanks for your support through all this but remember one thing we'll be BACK

justice was done you tried and failed to spoil our championship party now get in the playoffs and lose and look forwaed to trips to the M K Dons Hereford and Crewe marching on together ha ha ha ha up the SWANS
Would you have stayed up with Minus15 doubtful, we have and r in the playoffs, See you next season, Last game Leeds v Swansea at E R, Swansea need 3 points to stay up, chance of that happening NIL DESPERANDUM
Tiny T
leeds need to accept they are a league 1 team and they are no better than anyone in the division in fact the table doesnt lie swansea are better than you as are doncaster carlisle notts forest and southend! LEEDS super? nAH i dnt think so see you in your cup final i actually think you wont get tothe final oh well!! HAHAH WE SAW YOU CRYIN ON THE TELLY!!
Town Fan 82
response to tiny t take 15 points from 92 it leaves you with 77 so yes the mighty Swans would have stayed up and finished in the playoffs with a better points tally than Leeds education especially maths not that good up north by the sounds of it and dont forget matey we beat you with 10 men now get in the nervy nervy playoffs
