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

Leeds Wish for High Court Justice

Leeds United have announced that they have requested that the FA waive their right to take the 15 point penalty issue to arbitration and allow the High Court to pass a final judgement on the matter.

A statement on the Official Club Website leedsunited.com reads:

'Leeds United can confirm that we have written to the Football Association inviting them to waive their right that the dispute should be determined through their arbitration procedures and allow the matter to be referred directly to the High Court for a Judicial Review.

If they refuse this request we will commence independent arbitration proceedings in accordance with FA regulations.

An arbitration panel would consist of three members, one nominated by Leeds United, one by the Football Association, and an independent chairman, from a legal background, who would be approved by both parties.

We shall continue to pursue this matter step by step.'

Can Leeds stay out of Administration, that is another question & the Revenue are yet to conclude their investigations into the sale - because they were one of the biggest creditors! Leeds are doing just fine, they should get automatic & by keeping digging they could just dig themselves a hole!

Fight it all the way, the F.A is corrupt and this is just one instance, the Tevez affair being another sham that springs to mind!

To be honest I really dont think you need the 15 points anyway... Coz when you go up starting from -15 points that will be one in the eye for them
