'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bates staying and Leeds will appeal

Leeds chairman Ken Bates has announced the club will appeal to the Football Association against the Football League's decision to impose a 15-point deduction.

In an open letter published on the club's official website, Bates also said that he is going nowhere and neither are boss Dennis Wise or assistant Gus Poyet, and that the "mindless minority who do their silly chants had better get used to it".

Bates said: "The 15 point 'sanction' is a scandal and a travesty of justice. We are appealing that decision to the Football Association but meanwhile will get on with the job of strengthening the team and getting back firstly to the Championship and then the Premiership."

The chairman also outlined the current situation, what has been happening and what he hopes to happen in the future. Using Elland Road for non-footballing purposes and investing in the scouting and youth systems are set to be a key part of the club's future.
