Off Field Squabbles Add To Leeds Woe

Off Field Squabbles Add To Leeds Woe

The Leeds United Great Escape 2006/07 has a lovely new twist to it. After team-sheet leaks, poor performances and a captain-turned-want away, Ken Bates has got in on the action.

Shareholder Melvyn Levi has responded to claims by Bates that he is partially responsible for holding the club back, stating 'We're sick of it as fans that everyone else is getting blamed apart from Mr Bates.'

The marvellous Mr Bates criticised Levi in the match programme, and even went as far as to list his home address! The life-long Leeds fan was accused of demanding £250,000 plus 10% of the company.

'As you can imagine, I was not very pleased to have my address put in to a programme which is basically Mr Bates' method of putting out what he wants the public to understand and doesn't ask anyone else for their comments.'

It also turns out that he is banned from Elland Road, unless he pays of course.

How long can the debacle of Ken Bates ownership continue?
